Safety on the “Bridge to Nowhere” Grant Parsons wrote an articulate column in opposition to the proposed Traverse City pier at the mouth of the Boardman River. He cites issues such as limited access, lack of parking, increased congestion, environmental degradation, and pork barrel spending of tax dollars. I would add another to this list: public safety...

Vote Carefully A recent poll showed 84% of Michiganders support increasing Michigan’s renewable energy standard to at least 20% from the current 10%. Yet Representative Ray Franz has sponsored legislation to eliminate the standard. This out of touch position is reminiscent of Franz’s opposition to the Pure Michigan campaign and support for increased taxes on retirees....

Credit Where Credit Is Due I think you should do another article about the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund giving proper credit to all involved, not just Tom Washington. Many others were just as involved...

I’ve Changed My Mind The Supreme Court has determined that states cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. This has happened with breathtaking suddenness. It took 246 years for Americans to decide that slavery was wrong and abolish it, but it’s been only a couple of decades since any successful attempt was made to legalize same-sex marriage, and four years since a majority of the American public supported legalization...

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.
