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...

Spooktacular

- October 27th, 2008
Hey kids, if mom and dad want to borrow your costumes this year, it’s probably because they’re heading out to one of the many Halloween bashes being held at nightclubs and bars around the region.
As every nightcrawler knows, Halloween weekend is one of the biggest bar nights of the year, with adult Trick-or-Treaters decked out in their scariest, sexiest and most topical outfits.
Halloween falling on Friday this year is a bonus, with more energy in the mix and more incentive to get out and party in your alter ego as Sarah Palin or a Beverly Hills chihuahua. Here’s a look at who’s doing what around the region, with other info provided in the Express Nightlife pages:

Petoskey/Harbor Springs:
Like a number of clubs around the region, Papa Lou’s will be hosting its Maximum Hardcore Halloween Party on Saturday, Nov. 1, with a costume contest and DJ mis from Bill Da Cat. City Park Grill is going with a “Blackout” theme for it’s party on Nov. 1, with black lights scattered around the club and glow-in-the-dark specials. That same evening, you’ll find Omelette & Finster’s 2nd Annual Monster Mash at Northern Lights Recreation, midway between Petoskey and Harbor Springs.

Traverse City:
Expect every bar and club in town to be packed with costumed dancers: Union Street Station offers Soul Patch and Egon. At The Loading Dock, its Treologic, while across town, Lil Bo offers Life Theory in a no-cover costume bash. Streeters Ground Zero starts Halloween on the 29th with shock-rockers Mushroomhead, followed up with Rave from the Grave with DJ beats on the 31st and a Pimp & Ho night on Nov. 1. Just out of town, check out the benefit bash for Mt. Holiday ski resort on Nov. 1 with two bands, including Rumors, which has been a mainstay for the event since its inception.

Area Casinos:
Odawa Casino Resort in Petoskey is offering a $500 prize for the best costume at its Halloween Masquerade, along with prizes for the scariest, sexiest and most original outfits, with Soulstice performing in the Ozone nightclub. At Turtle Creek Casino in Williamsburg, you’ll find a tarot card reader and costume contest, along with a chance to win a 2008 Jeep Patriot. The Leelanau Sands Showroom features Twisted Finster for its Halloween bash. Little River Casino in Manistee kicks off with a Psychic Fair on Oct. 26, including massage therapists and tarot readers, and follows up with a costume contest in the Grove Lounge on Halloween.

Haunted Houses:
Whew! They’re all over the map this year, ranging from the Ghost Ship on the City of Milwaukee in Manistee to the House of Horror in Wolverine and a Halloween Maze in Beulah. Check out 11 options in the “Haunted Happenings” feature on page 27.
