Benishek Doesn’t Understand

Congressman Benishek claims to understand the needs of families, yet he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would cause about 10 million people to lose their health insurance. He must think as long as families can hold fundraisers they don’t need insurance...

(Un)Truth In Advertising

Constant political candidate ads on TV are getting to be too much to bear 45 days before the election...

Rare Tuttle Rebuttal

Finally, I disagree with Stephen Tuttle. His “Cherry Bomb” column in the 8/4/14 issue totally dismayed me. I always love his wit and the slamming of the 1 percent. His use of fact and hyperbole highlights the truth; until “Cherry Bomb.” Oh man, Stephen...

Say No To Fluoride

Do you or your child’s teeth have white, yellow, orange, brown, stains, spots, streaks, cloudy splotches or pitting? If so, you may be among millions of Americans who now have a condition called dental fluorosis...

Questions Of Freedom

The administration’s “Affordable Health Care Act” has ordered religious orders to provide contraception and chemical abortions against the church’s God given beliefs and teachings … an interesting order, considering the First Amendment’s clear prohibitions...

Stop The Insults & Talk

I found it interesting that Ms. Minervini used the Northern Express to push the Safe Harbor agenda for a 90-bed homeless shelter in Traverse City with a tactic that is also being utilized by members of the city commission. Those of us who oppose the project are being labeled as uncompassionate citizens...

Roads and Republicans

Each time you hit a road crater while driving, thank the “nerd” and the Tea Party controlled Republican legislature.

Pinewood Derby

- January 18th, 2010
Racers: Rev up for the Pintwood Derby
Remember those happy days of youth, competing in the Cub Scout’s Pinewood
Derby with a homemade, gravity-powered race car?
No? Well, now is your chance to get a taste of what you missed with the
Pintwood Derby racing series at the Right Brain Brewery in TC’s Warehouse
District between Jan. 27-April 14.
Like the original Pinewood Derby created by Cubmaster Don Murphy in 1953,
competitors will construct their very own RBB Pintwood Derby car out of a
block of wood (pine), plastic wheels and metal axles and then race it on
our gravity powered race track. 
Racers ages 21 and up can register solo or on a team of up to four people
for a chance to build and race a RBB Pintwood Derby car.  Races will take
place at Right Brain Brewery, located in the Warehouse District, every
Wednesday night beginning at 7 p.m. beginning January 27.  Each race will
count for points toward The RBB Beer Cup series championship.  In
addition, weekly cash prizes will be awarded. 
The event is co-partnered by Tjc Design Studio (which is creating the race
track) and Targeted Reach. Car kits are available at the Right Brain for
$25. Race fees are $5 per week. For the rules & regs, go to
www.RightBrainBrewery.com.
