Doctor Dan? After several email conversations with Rep. Benishek, he has confirmed that he doesn’t have a clue of what he does. Here’s why...

In Favor Of Our Parks [Traverse] City Proposal 1 is a creative way to improve our city parks without using our tax dollars. By using a small portion of our oil and gas royalties from the Brown Bridge Trust Fund, our parks can be improved for our children and grandchildren.

From January 1970 Popular Mechanics: “Drastic climate changes will occur within the next 50 years if the use of fossil fuels keeps rising at current rates.” That warning comes from Eugene K. Peterson of the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management.

Newcomers Might Leave: Recently we had guests from India who came over as students with the plan to stay in America. He has a master’s degree in engineering and she is doing her residency in Chicago and plans to specialize in oncology. They talked very candidly about American politics and said that after observing...

Someone Is You: On Sept 21, I joined the 400,000 who took to the streets of New York in the People’s Climate March, followed by a UN Climate Summit and many speeches. On October 13, the Pentagon issued a report calling climate change a significant threat to national security requiring immediate action. How do we move from marches, speeches and reports to meaningful work on this problem? In NYC I read a sign with a simple answer...

Necessary To Pay: Last fall, Grand Traverse voters authorized a new tax to fix roads. It is good, it is necessary.

The Real Reasons for Wolf Hunt: I have really been surprised that no one has been commenting on the true reason for the wolf hunt. All this effort has not been expended so 23 wolves can be killed each year. Instead this manufactured controversy about the wolf hunt has been very carefully crafted to get Proposal 14-2 passed.

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...
