Remember Bush-Cheney Does anyone remember George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? They were president and vice president a mere eight years ago. Does anyone out there remember the way things were at the end of their duo? It was terrible...

Mass Shootings And Gun Control The largest mass shooting in U.S. history occurred December 29,1890, when 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection.” The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms...

Families Need Representation When one party dominates the Michigan administration and legislature, half of Michigan families are not represented on the important issues that face our state. When a policy affects the non-voting K-12 students, they too are left out, especially when it comes to graduation requirements...

Raise The Minimum Wage I wanted to offer a different perspective on the issue of raising the minimum wage. The argument that raising the minimum wage will result in job loss is a bogus scare tactic. The need for labor will not change, just the cost of it, which will be passed on to the consumer, as it always has...

Make Cherryland Respect Renewable Cherryland Electric is about to change their net metering policy. In a nutshell, they want to buy the electricity from those of us who produce clean renewable electric at a rate far below the rate they buy electricity from other sources. They believe very few people have an interest in renewable energy...

Settled Science Climate change science is based on the accumulated evidence gained from studying the greenhouse effect for 200 years. The greenhouse effect keeps our planet 50 degrees warmer due to heat-trapping gases in our atmosphere. Basic principles of physics and chemistry dictate that Earth will warm as concentrations of greenhouse gases increase...

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.

KID ROCKS
BOYNE MOUNTAIN
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.
General admission tickets at $39.50 are on sale at ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets may also be charged by phone at 616-456-3333, 517-484-5656 or 989-754-4800.
