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...

Art with a Mission From Women‘s Hands features 100 = artists this weekend

- May 5th, 2005
If you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day weekend event, consider
“From Women’s Hands,” a celebration of life, art and the power of women
working together. MoreII than 100 female visual artists, authors,
culinary professionals, musicians and film makers will show and sell
their works at the juried exhibition that kicks off Friday, May 6 from
6-10 p.m. at the Hagerty Center in Traverse City.
Last year, a crowd of over 900 turned out for the opening of the third
annual event, and organizers are hoping for a similar outpouring this
time around. Last year’s event translated into $50,000 worth of art
sales during the show, generating a gift of nearly $15,000 to the
Women’s Cancer Fund at Munson Medical Center.
This year, the Women’s Cancer fund will receive 20 percent of all art
sales and 100 percent of the proceeds from an art raffle and silent
auction.
The Hagerty Center, located at 715 East Front Street (NMC’s Maritime
Academy, is the new location for the 2005 show, made possible through a
donation from Grand Traverse Auto and the Sleder Foundation. With
nearly 7,000 square feet of display space, From Women’s Hands plans to
offer additional artists’ works and spectacular views of the bay, as
well as an area in which authors and film makers will be able to
perform.
This year’s exhibit will again include presentations of plant and
floral arrangements. Also present will be a Memory Wall and Memory
Book, in which the community will be encouraged to make notes or leave
stories in celebration of those who have been affected by cancer.

LET THERE BE MUSIC
Opening night will feature music by Dawn Campbell, Robin Lee Berry,
Sharon O’Malley, Lynn Hansen and members of the Traverse Symphony
Orchestra. The opening reception will include wine from Shady Lane, a
raffle of donated art works and a silent auction.
On Saturday and Sunday from noon-2 p.m., some of the North’s most
notable female authors and poets will be reading from their work.
Film makers will present their work from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday.
The exhibit and sale run May 6 from 6-10 p.m. Saturday hours are 10
a.m.- 6 p.m.; Sunday, from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.
