Facts About Trails I would like to correct some misinformation provided in Kristi Kates’ article about the Shore-to-Shore Trail in your April 18 issue.

Critical Thinking Needed Our media gives ample coverage to some presidential candidates calling each other a liar and a sleaze bag. While entertaining to some, this certainly should lower one’s respect for either candidate. This race to the bottom comes as no surprise given their lack of respect for the rigors of critical thinking. The world’s esteemed scientists take great steps to preserve the integrity of their findings. Not only are their findings peer reviewed by fellow experts in their specialty, whenever possible the findings are cross-checked by independent studies...

None - August 19th, 2011  

Cindy Toranzo is crazy, quirky, fun! Her global fashions span across continents; one day wearing an African dashiki, the next, a sari from India. This former New York City gal is always fabulous. When it comes to her clients, the stylist at Salone de Capelli prefers a more classic and chic look. She says, “I like to make women glamorous!” Cindy, who specializes in hair and make-up for special events, will have an opportunity to showcase her out-of-thebox styling skills during “Fashion Is Art” on August 20 at the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival. This year’s event will include an eye-catching fashion show featuring ambassadors modeling styles from local salons & boutiques.
