Facts About Trails I would like to correct some misinformation provided in Kristi Kates’ article about the Shore-to-Shore Trail in your April 18 issue. The Shore-to-Shore Trail is not the longest continuous trail in the Lower Peninsula. That honor belongs to the North Country Trail (NCT), which stretches for over 400 miles in the Lower Peninsula. In fact, 100 miles of the NCT is within a 30-minute drive of Traverse City, and is maintained by the Grand Traverse Hiking Club...

North Korea Is Bluffing I eagerly read Jack Segal’s columns and attend his lectures whenever possible. However, I think his April 24th column falls into an all too common trap. He casually refers to a nuclear-armed North Korea when there is no proof whatever that North Korea has any such weapons. Sure, they have set off some underground explosions but so what? Tonga could do that. Every nuclear-armed country on Earth has carried out at least one aboveground test, just to prove they could do it if for no other reason. All we have is North Korea’s word for their supposed capabilities, which is no proof at all...

Double Dipping? In Greg Shy’s recent letter, he indicated that his Social Security benefit was being unfairly reduced simply due to the fact that he worked for the government. Somehow I think something is missing here. As I read it this law is only for those who worked for the government and are getting a pension from us generous taxpayers. Now Greg wants his pension and he also wants a full measure of Social Security benefits even though he did not pay into Social Security...

Critical Thinking Needed Our media gives ample coverage to some presidential candidates calling each other a liar and a sleaze bag. While entertaining to some, this certainly should lower one’s respect for either candidate. This race to the bottom comes as no surprise given their lack of respect for the rigors of critical thinking. The world’s esteemed scientists take great steps to preserve the integrity of their findings. Not only are their findings peer reviewed by fellow experts in their specialty, whenever possible the findings are cross-checked by independent studies...

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.
