Michigan’s Depleted Funds So now we know why the Michigan legislators wanted to rush Proposal 1 down our throats.

Legality of Marriage & Divorce An article in the May 25th issue of Time reveals that: “We now have reached a point where fewer than half of kids leaving high school will have their parents living together.”

Cold Paradise Your May 18 cover story “Why is Northern Michigan So White?” is preposterous. For starters, we have plenty of diversity in this region: German, Polish, Swedish, Lithuanian, Norwegian, French Canadian, etc. – all groups that flourish in colder, harsh winter climates.

Unpave Those Roads Michigan legislators recently put before the people a proposal to increase tax to increase funds to the DOT and road commissions across the state for road repairs. The proposal failed by a significant margin.

Radio Redux: Sound of the 40‘s Lights up The Trillium

- March 10th, 2005
It‘s World War II and Big Band music is all the rage on the airwaves. Do you have any clue as to where you are?
Possibly at the Trillium Restaurant at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, which is hosting “The 1940’s Radio Hour,” a dinner theater musical set in a small New York City radio station way back when.
The show is the first production of the new theatre company, Theatre North TC. Co-founded by Mike Kelly, who serves as director of the show, and by WTCM’s John Dew, who is acting in the production, this is Theatre North TC’s first production.
The show centers around a group of nine performers and their attempts to make it to the “big time” during the backdrop of World War II. Diners become part of the show as they take on the role of a 1940’s radio station audience.
The production includes such greats as “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Blue Moon,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Old Black Magic” and approximately 18 other numbers of the era.
Playing a supporting role with a delicious part is a four-course dinner with an entree choice of Ancho Grilled Top Sirloin of Beef, Grilled Chicken, or Soy Glazed Salmon.
You can see “The 1940’s Radio Hour” as a dinner-theater production from 7-9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through April 9. Tickets for dinner and the musical are $35 per person for adults, $18 per person for children 12 and under, plus tax and gratuities. Reservations are recommended by calling 800-748-0303. Overnight accommodations in the Resort’s Hotel, Tower, or Condominiums are available.
