Save America

I read your paper because it’s free and I enjoy the ads. But I struggle through the left wing tripe that fills every page, from political cartoons to the vitriolic pen of Mr. Tuttle. What a shame this beautiful area of the state has such an abundance of Socialist/democrats. Or perhaps the silent majority chooses to stay silent...

Doom, Yet a Cup Half Full

In the news we are told of the civil unrest at Ferguson, Mo; ISIS war radicals in Iraq and Syria; the great corporate tax heist at home. You name it. Trouble, trouble, everywhere. It seems to me the U.S. Congress is partially to blame...

Uncomfortable Questions

defending the positions of the Israelis vs Hamas are far too narrow. Even Mr. Tuttle seems to have failed in looking deeply into the divide. American media is not biased against Israel, nor or are they pro Palestine or Hamas...

The Evolution of Man Revisited

As the expectations of manhood evolve, so too do the rules of love. In Mr. Holmes’s statement [from “Our Therapist Will See Us Now” in last week’s issue] he narrows the key to a successful relationship to the basic need to have your wants and needs understood, and it is on this point I expand...

jumping for the entire 24 hours. Come out and enjoy the event and make
a pledge for the Trails Council. 

‘Bullies‘ in Bay Harbor
Bay Harbor was the site of a film shoot last week: Bullies on Vacation,
a dark comedy short film was shot over a three-day period before moving
on to another location in Grand Rapids.
Written by Brian VanderArk, the frontman for the Verve Pipe (“We Were
Only Freshmen”), the comedy is directed by Devon Gummersall of My
So-Called Life and star’s Mad Men’s Mark Kelly. It’s about a writer on
vacation up north who encounters a bully who tormented him as a child. A
resulting sucker punch leads to complications and lessons learned.
