Disheartened

While observing Fox News, it was disheartening to see what their viewers were subjected to. It seems the Republicans’ far right wing extremists are conveying their idealistic visions against various nationalities, social diversities or political beliefs with an absence of emotion concerning women’s health issues, children’s rights, voter suppression, Seniors, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid...

Things That Matter

All of us in small towns and large not only have the right to speak on behalf of our neighbors and ourselves, we have the duty and responsibility to do so -- and 238 years ago, we made a clear Declaration to do just that...

An Anecdote Driven Mind

So, is Thomas Kachadurian now the Northern Express’ official resident ranter? His recent factfree, hard-hearted column suggests it. While others complain about the poor condition of Michigan’s roads and highways, he rants against those we employ to fix them...

No On Prop 1

Are we being conned? Are those urging us to say “yes” to supposedly ”revenue neutral” ballot proposal 1 on August 5 telling us all the pertinent facts? Proposal 1 would eliminate the personal property tax businesses pay to local governments, replacing its revenue with a share of Michigan’s 6 percent use tax paid by us all on out-of-state purchases, hotel accommodations, some equipment rentals, and telecommunications...

Fix VA Tragedy

The problems within the Veterans Administration identified under former President Bush continue to hinder the delivery of quality health care to the influx of physically wounded and emotionally damaged young men and women...

Women Take Note

I find an interesting link between the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby and the crisis on the southern border. Angry protesters shout at children to go home. These children are scared, tired, hungry and thirsty, sent to US prisons awaiting deportation to a country where they may very likely be killed...

WORK IT…Martha (pronounced Marta) Hubbell was born in Colombia where Zumba all began. A salsa dance champ, Martha now lives in Honor and teaches Zumba, salsa, and fitness dancing in Traverse City and Frankfort. Find her dance schedule at marthadancezumba.com or call her at 231-631-4358.


Partner Dancing …Get close to your honey with a partner dancing class at Beledi Global Dance. Slow, Waltz, Swing, Polka, Two Step, and Latin. All levels are welcome. See the schedule at www.belediglobaldance.com.


TWIST…K.B. Sutton said the first few Zumba classes are a little—well, let’s just say you might not be used to moving your hips quite that way. K.B. will show how you how. And her classes in Traverse City and Leelanau County are just five bucks. Email her at kbhands@centurytel.net for times and location.

TOSS…Helio Conceicao used to teach the martial arts game of capoeira in his native country of Brazil. Now he calls Traverse City home and can teach you at the Ondas Cultural Arts Studio in TC at 1036 Barlow. Check out details at ondasarts.wordpress.com.


Zumba! Just the name is happy! Christy Morgan, who teaches classes in Charlevoix and Petoskey, says the moves are repetitive, but it takes about three classes to get them down. Once you do, the work-out is AMAZING. Call Christy at 330-6506 or email christiszumba@yahoo.com.
