Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

Dove‘s Best Friend

Express Staff - June 16th, 2005
Green Party of Michigan is crowing over the certification of their petition to restore Michigan’s 99-year ban on hunting the mourning dove -- a bird recognized by the state legislature as the Michigan Bird of Peace.
The law that ended that ban has been suspended, and there will be no more shooting of doves in the state until after a statewide vote on the measure in November 2006, according to a release from the Greens.
The Committee to Restore the Dove Shooting Ban filed over 275,000 petition signatures in March -- almost twice as many as were needed to qualify the referendum for the ballot. Dove hunters, who had influenced elected officials to get the ban ended, did not challenge the petition.

Northern Michigan’s adopted son, Kid Rock brings his Twisted Brown Trucker band to Boyne Mountain on Sunday, July 17 in a show that should knock some of the rust off of the Northern Michigan concert scene.
The show by the multi-platinum performer signals Boyne Mountain’s debut as a major player in the Northern Michigan music scene and is the first concert in its Music On The Mountain Series. The show is significant because few major concert venues in the region offer music of interest to younger listeners.
