Benishek Inching

Regarding “Benishek No Environmentalist” I agree with Mr. Powell’s letter to the editor/ opinion of Congressman Dan Benishek’s poor environmental record and his penchant for putting corporate interests ahead of his constituents’...

Climate Change Warning

Currently there are three assaults on climate change. The first is on the integrity of the scientists who support human activity in climate change. Second is that humans are not capable of affecting the climate...

Fed Up About Roads

It has gotten to the point where I cringe when I have to drive around this area. There are areas in Traverse City that look like a war zone. When you have to spend more time viewing potholes instead on concentrating on the road, accidents are bound to happen...

Don’t Blame the IRS

I have not heard much about the reason for the IRS getting itself entangled with the scrutiny of certain conservative 501(c) groups (not for profit) seeking tax exemption. Groups seeking tax relief must be organizations that are operated “primarily for the purpose of bringing about civic betterment and social improvements.”

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.
