Next For Brownfields In regard to your recent piece on brownfield redevelopment in TC, the Randolph Street project appears to be proceeding without receiving its requested $600k in brownfield funding from the county. In response to this, the mayor is quoted as saying that the developer bought the property prior to performing an environmental assessment and had little choice but to now build it...

Defending Our Freedom This is in response to Sally MacFarlane Neal’s recent letter, “War Machines for Family Entertainment.” Wake Up! Make no mistake about it, we are at war! Even though the idiot we have for a president won’t accept the fact because he believes we can negotiate with Iran, etc., ISIS and their like make it very clear they intend to destroy the free world as we know it. If you take notice of the way are constantly destroying their own people, is that living...

What Is Far Left? Columnist Steve Tuttle, who so many lambaste as a liberal, considers Sen. Sanders a far out liberal “nearly invisible from the middle.” Has the middle really shifted that far right? Sanders has opposed endless war and the Patriot Act. Does Mr. Tuttle believe most of our citizens praise our wars and the positive results we have achieved from them? Is supporting endless war or giving up our civil liberties middle of the road...

Parking Corrected Stephen Tuttle commented on parking in the July 13 Northern Express. As Director of the Traverse City Downtown Development Authority, I feel compelled to address a couple key issues. But first, I acknowledge that  there is some consternation about parking downtown. As more people come downtown served by less parking, the pressure on what parking we have increases. Downtown serves a county with a population of 90,000 and plays host to over three million visitors annually...

Eels offer up a new album Tomorrow Morning

Kristi Kates - May 31st, 2010
Eels Offer Up New Album Tomorrow Morning
Eels are dropping their newest album this August, and will preface the album’s release with a world tour set to kick off on August 3. Eels frontman E (aka Mark Oliver Everett) says that the new set, Tomorrow Morning, will complete an album trilogy that began with 2009’s Hombre Lobo and January 2010’s End Times, and will be released on the Eels’ own E Works Records label. The tour itself will begin in Santa Ana, California, and will continue through a series of Japanese, Australian, UK, and European dates before returning to the U.S. in September for stops in Philly (9/22), Toronto (9/29), and Detroit’s own Crofoot on September 30...
Pulp frontman turned solo artist Jarvis Cocker has just dropped an album in support of the UK’s National Trust, which preserves natural and historic places across the nation. The album, dubbed simply National Trust: The Album, is available now as a free download from www.nationaltrust.org.uk, and consists of “tranquil sounds” recorded at various nature locations as run by the trust, including what Cocker calls “a holiday for the ears” mix of water, clocks ticking, and ducks. Cocker also enthuses that the album enables the listener to virtually visit over a dozen National Trust properties in half an hour, which he hopes will inspire them to visit - and help save - the sites themselves...
Rogue Wave, whose latest album, the critically-acclaimed Permalight was released earlier this spring, are set to hop on the tour bus this summer for a mid-season tour. Kicking off in Nevada on July 14, the trek will include two weeks’ worth of live dates, plus a stop at this year’s Lollapalooza Fest in Chicago. Additional shows for the band will take place in Denver (7/17), at Detroit’s Magic Stick (7/20), in Pittsburgh (7/21), Baltimore (7/29), and at Cleveland’s Grog Shop (8/3); while on tour, the band will shoot a new music video for Permalight’s current single, Solitary Gun...
And for you music and baseball fans currently reveling in the return of baseball season, you’ll be happy to hear that John Fogerty - whose song “Centerfield” has been an anthem at baseball games - will become the only musician ever inducted into the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame on June 29. Lifelong baseball fan Fogerty is set to perform that very same song at the induction ceremony, and to celebrate, he’s also releasing a remastered version of the Centerfield album that will include a couple of rare B-side singles...
