I was born in Marinette, Wisconsin which is right over any of the three bridges that connect it to the City of Menominee, the southernmost city in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Living over 30 years of my life, I consider myself a UP Man. The UP’s landmass is larger than Connecticut and Rhode Island, but it only lays claim to 3% of Michigan’s total population . . . and “Yoopers” like it that way!
