Safety on the “Bridge to Nowhere” Grant Parsons wrote an articulate column in opposition to the proposed Traverse City pier at the mouth of the Boardman River. He cites issues such as limited access, lack of parking, increased congestion, environmental degradation, and pork barrel spending of tax dollars. I would add another to this list: public safety...

Vote Carefully A recent poll showed 84% of Michiganders support increasing Michigan’s renewable energy standard to at least 20% from the current 10%. Yet Representative Ray Franz has sponsored legislation to eliminate the standard. This out of touch position is reminiscent of Franz’s opposition to the Pure Michigan campaign and support for increased taxes on retirees....

Credit Where Credit Is Due I think you should do another article about the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund giving proper credit to all involved, not just Tom Washington. Many others were just as involved...

I’ve Changed My Mind The Supreme Court has determined that states cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. This has happened with breathtaking suddenness.

KODAK PLAYSPORT VIDEO CAMERA


Attention action junkies: If you’re looking for a video camera that can take a beating on your wildest rides -- or even underwater -- consider Kodak’s new Playsport.

“We built it to take on the most extreme lifestyles with an insanely tough design,” states company literature. “we’re talking shockproof, dustproof, and waterproof to a depth of 10 feet And built-in image stabilization smooths out even the roughest ride.”

The camera offers 128 MB of internal memory, but comes with a memory card slot that allows you to capture 10 hours of HD video with a 32 GB card (not included). It also packs a 4x digital zoom. One of its best features, however, may be Kodak’s 3-step sharing process, which allows you to upload your videos to YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, Kodak Gallery and other social networks. Yours for around $140.
