Speakers series haunts in opener

Ghost stories kick off the Maritime Speaker Series this Thursday in Sturgeon Bay. Hosted by the Door County Maritime Museum, the monthly series got expanded this year to include October and May in response to the popularity of the events. Dan Heibler will present “Ghost Stories of the Great Lakes” when he gives his first of two presentations during this year’s series.
