Worry About Legals

I can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the “Affordable” Care Act...

Stop Labeling and Enjoy

I have been struggling to find a simple way of understanding for myself the concepts of conservative, liberal, and moderation as it relates to our social interactions with each other...

Proposal One & The Public Good

Are you kidding me? Another corporate giveaway with loopholes for large corporations who rule us? Hasn’t our corrupt and worthless governor done enough to raise taxes, provide corporate welfare, unjustly tax pensions, and shut down elected officials with his emergency manager racket...

The Truth About Road Workers

Apparently Mr. Kachadurian did not catch on to the fact that the MDOT Employee Memorial in Clare is a tribute to highway workers who lost their lives building our transportation systems. It was paid for by current and former MDOT employees who likely knew some of these people personally...

Idiotic and Misguided

As a seasonal resident, I always look forward to reading your paper, if only because of the idiotic letters to the editor and off the wall columns...

Lost Lama

- September 8th, 2005
LOST LAMA: Members of TIBETmichigan have asked Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos to help find the missing Panchen Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet.
Gedun Choekyi Nyima was born on April 25, 1989 and was officially proclaimed as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama, who died unexpectedly after delivering an anti-Chinese government speech. The young Panchen Lama is presently the youngest political prisoner in the world.
DeVos reportedly has many contacts with the Chinese government as a result of his business dealings there with Amway (now Alticor). Democrats have criticized him for outsourcing 1,400 Michigan jobs to China.
“You are in a special position to help locate and free the kidnapped Panchen Lama,” states an appeal from TIBETmichigan, which hasn’t had a response from the DeVos camp.

POT’S PECKING ORDER: TC’s Coalition for Compassionate Care circulated medical marijuana petitions in August for a ballot proposal on the next election. The ballot question asks whether lowest law enforcement priority should be given in TC for marijuana possession or delivery by caregivers; and possession, delivery or use by medical patients.

NMEAC (Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council) is celebrating its 25th anniversary on Oct. 28 at the Hagerty Center in TC. The watchdog group of citizen activists got its start in 1980 and has since been involved in virtually every environmental battle in the region, including the Crystal River controversy, Hartman-Hammond Bridge, Big Rock Nuclear Power Plant, and a failed plan for a mini-mall in downtown TC, among others.
