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.

Spa Happy Hour @ The Inn at Bay Harbor

Spa Happy Hour
The Inn at Bay Harbor
offers a healthful alternative

By Carina Hume

If you’re into pampering, grab your girlfriends – or favorite guy – and enjoy a happy hour with a twist. Every Thursday, from 5-8 p.m., The Spa at the Inn at Bay Harbor is treating its patrons to a complimentary drink – including cocktails, wine or non-alcoholic smoothie shots – and light hors d’oeuvres during their appointment. What better way to hang with friends or a significant other after a long day at work?
The Spa’s Happy Hour started in October 2007 and continues to be a popular offering.
“It’s a great time to be in the spa and enjoy,” says Camryn Pollard, spa manager. “It’s a little bit of a different atmosphere.”
Friendly staff welcome you to the spacious lobby and salon – newly expanded last summer – with plenty of windows to let the Northern Michigan sunshine in. The retail area includes spa apparel, lotions and hair products with a relaxation lounge for patrons to wait in between treatments.
“Depending on the day, it can be relaxing,” continues Pollard. “Or, there can be more people milling around doing makeup together, hair together…. It just really depends on who you schedule with, who you come with. It’s also a great time to use our Local Preferred Club that we have.”

PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT
Residents from Petoskey, Traverse City and farther north can become members of the Spa’s Local Preferred Club, which began as a way for the Spa to participate in the community.
“Our passion really, here at the Spa, is the community,” says Pollard, who’s been the spa’s manager for a year-and-a half and with Boyne for four years. “Sunday through Thursday, locals get 20 percent off all of our services – whatever they’d like to book.” Additional benefits include off-season pricing year-round and 10 percent off retail.
“They just have to live in our community,” explains Pollard. “That’s the important piece.”
Prices start at $39 for a haircut and $55 for color at the spa’s hair salon. “We have a fantastic Italian color line that we’ve been so happy with called Kemn,” Pollard says.
Treat yourself to a hot-stone massage, a body treatment, makeup lesson, manicure, pedicure or facial. Mothers can schedule mother/daughter days and couples can share a package created especially for them.
“This is a couples’ retreat destination,” says Pollard. Men’s services range from hot towel facials to natural manicures and sporting foot treatments, as well as massages and waxing.
Catch some dinner at the Inn while you’re here. Sagamore’s offers an elegant gourmet dining experience and the South American Grille offers soups, salads and bistro fare.
On Thursday, April 30, local astrologer, Mary Stewart Adams will be offering private $25 mini-astrology sessions to happy hour patrons. Learn how the stars affect your life through romance, career, finance and creativity.

The Spa at the Inn at Bay Harbor offers Happy Hour every Thursday from 5-8 p.m. Regular spa hours are Mon.-Wed., 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Sundays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. year-round. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 231-439-4046, email innspa@innatbayharbor.com or visit www.innatbayharbor.com/spa.
