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...

What‘s new at Northern Express

What’s new at Northern Express
George Foster 3/30/09

Here at the bustling compound of the Northern Express Weekly administrative offices, we received a revealing phone call last week. The caller wondered if the Express had gone out of business. It seems our newspapers were missing from their usual shelf in a local business when the caller stopped by to pick up his copy.
The absence of papers was actually due to a different problem - the Express papers had all been gobbled up at the location in question. While some of the other free publications seem to always languish on the newsstands, Northern Express is more popular than ever.
With newspapers across the country crumbling around us daily, it isn’t surprising that some may wonder about our paper’s prospects as a viable business. Well, just look through this issue for your answer. It is our most successful Best of Northern Michigan issue ever. More importantly, after 18 years of publishing, overall distribution and advertising sales of Northern Express continue to grow.
Yet, as the economy reboots itself, no business can afford to hang its hat totally on the past. We are always looking for ways to improve the Express. As a part of our strategy for continued growth in the future, we are happy to announce a new online product, the Virtual Express, mirroring our printed newspaper that many of you have read every week for years.
Don’t worry, the printed Northern Express will always be with us. You can still expect to find the printed copy in the same 600 locations in 13 counties every week. In addition to the printed paper, every page of the newspaper is now being reproduced online in the same form as our printed edition.
The advantage of the Virtual Express is that we now have your back. Last week’s desperate caller has a copy at his fingertips online when his favorite hangout runs out of Northern Express. Looking for a past article that is long gone? Just log on to
www.northernexpress.com and look in our archives.
Once on the Virtual Express, I personally get a kick out of the “flipping page” technology (click the lower corners of the paper). Listening to the sound of pages turning is the next best thing to holding a newspaper. Follow the instructions on page 7 of this issue to read the Northern Express online. Once on the Virtual Express, don’t forget to zoom in up to 400 percent to enlarge articles or ads. Also, the system provides easy access to advertiser websites with a simple “point and click,” along with many other user-friendly features.
Your buddies at the Express have debated endlessly how we could have a better presence online and still not undercut the success of our printed product. The Virtual Express seems to be the answer. Now you can find the same Northern Express online that reads in newspaper form, page for page.
While celebrating the winners and other contenders in this extremely competitive Best of Northern Michigan issue, we would be remiss if we didn’t thank the readers and advertisers of Northern Express for their amazing support over the last 18 years. You are the best.
