In this week's Photo of the Week we give a nod to the waning days of summer. This image was captured on July 29 by Paul A. Werwas of South Bend. When Paul submitted his photos he said, "If they're worth sharing on Facebook, they're worth sending to you as well." We couldn't agree more. 

Do you have a great image to share?

New Buffalo earned a federal grant to improve its beaches for the growing number of tourists that visit each summer. 

The City has $51,000 to create a master plan for New Buffalo beaches.

New Buffalo’s beach will have lifeguards on a limited basis this summer, despite an effort to drop the program.

Lifeguards will be on the beach on weekends and holidays only, much like they were last year.

Earlier this year city manager Dave Richards proposed a draft budget without the lifeguards on it. A local resident and a few lifeguard organizations protested and the lifeguards were kept on the budget.

Richards said finding lifeguards in New Buffalo is hard.
