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. The Shore-to-Shore Trail is not the longest continuous trail in the Lower Peninsula. That honor belongs to the North Country Trail (NCT), which stretches for over 400 miles in the Lower Peninsula. In fact, 100 miles of the NCT is within a 30-minute drive of Traverse City, and is maintained by the Grand Traverse Hiking Club...

North Korea Is Bluffing I eagerly read Jack Segal’s columns and attend his lectures whenever possible. However, I think his April 24th column falls into an all too common trap. He casually refers to a nuclear-armed North Korea when there is no proof whatever that North Korea has any such weapons. Sure, they have set off some underground explosions but so what? Tonga could do that. Every nuclear-armed country on Earth has carried out at least one aboveground test, just to prove they could do it if for no other reason. All we have is North Korea’s word for their supposed capabilities, which is no proof at all...

Double Dipping? In Greg Shy’s recent letter, he indicated that his Social Security benefit was being unfairly reduced simply due to the fact that he worked for the government. Somehow I think something is missing here. As I read it this law is only for those who worked for the government and are getting a pension from us generous taxpayers. Now Greg wants his pension and he also wants a full measure of Social Security benefits even though he did not pay into Social Security...

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...

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.
