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...

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.
