The Truth About Fatbikes

While we appreciate the fatbike trail coverage, the quote from the article below is exactly what we demonstrated not to be true in most cases last season...

Man Has Environmental Responsibility

I tend to agree with Thomas Kachadurian (“Playing God,” Sept. 8) that we should not interfere with the power of nature by deciding what is “native” and what is not. Man usually does what is better for man (or so we believe), hence the survival and population growth of our species...

The Bush & Obama Facts

Don Turner’s letter to the editor on 8/25/14 stated that there has never been a more corrupt, dishonest, etc. set of politicians in the White House. He states no facts, but here are a few...

Ban Pesticides

I grew up downstate in a neighborhood without pesticides. I was always very healthy. Living here, I have become ill. So I did my research and found out a lot about these poison agents called pesticides (herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, etc) that are being spread throughout this community, accumulating in our air, water and soil...

Respect for Presidents?

Recently we read the Letter to the Editor that encouraged us to stop characterizing President Obama as anything other than an upstanding, moral, inspiring “first Black President”. The author would have us think that the rancor in the press, media and public is misguided.

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.
