Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Computer waste

Express Staff - November 7th, 2002
Computer waste
What should a responsible person do with their electronic relics?
Recycle them at Grand Traverse County‘s Computer and Electronics Recycling
Event on November 9 in Traverse City.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, over 4.3 million tons of
electronic waste was discarded in 1999. They project that 63 million more
computers will require disposal by 2005. At present, 75% of our electronic
waste sits piled in basements and attics awaiting better disposal options
than the local landfill.
Residents who want to “do the right thing“ by recycling their old computers
and electronic equipment must make a reservation to attend the collection.
A $5 fee per item will be charged in order to help cover the cost
of shipping and recycling the equipment. Call the Resource Recovery hotline
at 922-2052.

Planned Parenthood Northern Michigan (PPNM) is trying to raise awareness on the “morning-after pill” or post-coital emergency contraception (EC), which can reduce the risk of pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. A workshop on the use of EC will be held Thursday, November 7 at 7 p.m. at both the Planned Parenthood Northern Michigan (PPNM) health centers in Petoskey and Traverse City.

She‘s honored
Hats off to JoAnna Kolodziej, a professor of early childhood education at North Central Michigan College, who was honored last month with an Educator of the Year award by the Michigan Occupational Deans Administrative Council. JoAnna has been on the NCMC staff since 1979. She is the mother of three and has been active in many causes for the benefit of children in the Petoskey area.

According to Judge Root , 10 consecutive days were needed for the trial and in October only six days had been scheduled on the court calendar.
