Paging Doctor Dan: The doctor’s promise to repeal Obamacare reminds me of the frantic restaurant owner hurrying to install an exhaust fan after the kitchen burns down. He voted 51 times to replace the ACA law; a colossal waste of money and time. It’s here to stay and he has nothing to replace it.

Evolution Is Real Science: Breathtaking inanity. That was the term used by Judge John Jones III in his elegant evisceration of creationist arguments attempting to equate it to evolutionary theory in his landmark Kitzmiller vs. Dover Board of Education decision in 2005.

U.S. No Global Police: Steven Tuttle in the October 13 issue is correct: our military, under the leadership of the President (not the Congress) is charged with protecting the country, its citizens, and its borders. It is not charged with  performing military missions in other places in the world just because they have something we want (oil), or we don’t like their form of government, or we want to force them to live by the UN or our rules.

Graffiti: Art Or Vandalism?: I walk the [Grand Traverse] Commons frequently and sometimes I include the loop up to the cistern just to go and see how the art on the cistern has evolved. Granted there is the occasional gross image or word but generally there is a flurry of color.

NMEAC Snubbed: Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council (NMEAC) is the Grand Traverse region’s oldest grassroots environmental advocacy organization. Preserving the environment through citizen action and education is our mission.

Vote, Everyone: Election Day on November 4 is fast approaching, and now is the time to make a commitment to vote. You may be getting sick of the political ads on TV, but instead, be grateful that you live in a free country with open elections. Take the time to learn about the candidates by contacting your county parties and doing research.

Do Fluoride Research: Hydrofluorosilicic acid, H2SiF6, is a byproduct from the production of fertilizer. This liquid, not environmentally safe, is scrubbed from the chimney of the fertilizer plant, put into containers, and shipped. Now it is a ‘product’ added to the public drinking water.

Meet The Homeless: As someone who volunteers for a Traverse City organization that works with homeless people, I am appalled at what is happening at the meetings regarding the homeless shelter. The people fighting this shelter need to get to know some homeless families. They have the wrong idea about who the homeless are.

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.
