Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

The hunt for Bearable Art

- June 30th, 2005
Visitors to Northern Michigan can expect to find plenty of black bears on the prowl this summer, thanks to the sponsors of the Hunt for Bearable Art.
A fundraiser for the American Red Cross, the “hunt” has enlisted some of Michigan’s most talented artists, who have added a splash of whimsy to more than 45 lifesize bear sculptures on display throughout the region. The bears have been sponsored by businesses, community groups or private donors.
From Central Lake to Cheboygan, it’s possible to track the bears using color brochures available at local chambers of commerce. You can even get to know the bears by name, including Aurora Beary Alice; Shakesbear; Bear Boating and Rock Bottom, to name a few.
On the evening of August 13, the bears will gather for an auction under the stars at Bay Harbor. Honorary chairs Doug and Melanie Johnson have an evening of food, fun and competition planned for the culmination of the bear hunt. All proceeds from the auction will benefit local services of the American Red Cross.
The Northern Lower Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross provides services to Charlevoix, Emmet, Antrim and Cheboygan counties. Contact the Red Cross for more info or for tickets to the Art Auction by calling 231-348-7666; on the web at
www.arcnlm.org, or visit their office at 2350 Mitchell Park Drive, Petoskey.
