Trump should avoid self-dealing President-elect Donald Trump plans to turn over running of The Trump Organization to his children, who are also involved in the transition and will probably be informal advisers during his administration. This is not a “blind trust.” In this scenario Trump and family could make decisions based on what’s best for them rather than what’s best for the country...

Trump the change we need?  I have had a couple of weeks to digest the results of this election and reflect. There is no way the selection of Trump as POTUS could ever come close to being normal. It is not normal to have a president-elect settle a fraud case for millions a couple of months before the inauguration. It is not normal to have racists considered for cabinet posts. It is not normal for a president-elect tweet outrageous comments on his Twitter feed to respond to supposed insults at all hours of the early morning...

Health care system should benefit all It is no secret that the health insurance situation in our country is controversial. Some say the Affordable Care Act is “the most terrible thing that has happened to our country in years”; others are thrilled that, “for the first time in years I can get and afford health insurance.” Those who have not been closely involved in the medical field cannot be expected to understand how precarious the previous medical insurance structure was...

Christmas tradition needs change The Christmas light we need most is the divine, and to receive it we do not need electricity, probably only prayers and good deeds. But not everyone has this understanding, as we see in the energy waste that follows with the Christmas decorations...

CORRECTIONS & CLARIFICATIONS 

A story in last week’s edition about parasailing businesses on East Grand Traverse Bay mistakenly described Grand Traverse Parasail as a business that is affiliated with the ParkShore Resort. It operates from a beach club two doors down from the resort. The story also should have noted that prior to the filing of a civil lawsuit in federal court by Saburi Boyer and Traverse Bay Parasail against Bryan Punturo and the ParkShore Resort, a similar lawsuit was dismissed from 13th Circuit Court in Traverse City upon a motion from the defendant’s attorney. Express regrets the error and omission.

A story in last week’s edition about The Fillmore restaurant in Manistee misstated Jacob Slonecki’s job at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course. He was a cook. Express regrets the error.

Modern Rock
Scottish retro-pop-rockers Simple Minds have wrapped work on their next album, which they’ve titled Graffiti Soul. The album, according to Simple Minds’ frontman Jim Kerr, is “truly vibrant rock n’ roll and pop,” and follows up the band’s 30th anniversary tour, at which they played complete run-throughs of their classic albums and also performed a live set at the birthday party of none other than a 90-year-old Nelson Mandela. Graffiti Soul hits stores on May 25 on Universal Records, and a supporting tour is in the planning stages...
Wilco have been working hard on mixing their latest album with Cali producer Jim Scott, and have also collaborated with Feist on the track “You and I,” to which Feist lends vocals. Ten or so songs have been completed for the album; the band will now complete the mixing process and decide on the final song sequence. The album itself is due for a late June release on Nonesuch Records, while in the meantime, fans can snag Wilco’s live DVD, Ashes of American Flags, which is in stores now...
