Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Frankfort throws a film festival

Frankfort throws a Film Fest
Rick Schmitt, co-owner of The Garden Theater in Frankfort, has a breezy idea for the second annual Frankfort Film Festival to be held this weekend, Oct. 21-24: he’s going to use wind power to provide the electricity to run the festival.
“Based on positive sponsorship support, the 2010 Festival will operated with wind power supplied by wind credits from Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa, one of the sponsors of this year’s event,” Schmitt says. “We are excited to be stewards in environmental innovation, while also showcasing innovative film productions.”
The Frankfort Film Festival will include 14 independent films, many of them award winners at international festivals. Highlights of this year’s event include two filmmakers who will attend the Festival for showings of their respective films. The 2009 Filmmaker of the year Richard Brauer will be at the screening of his movie Fitful to address the audience and take questions. Fitful was filmed entirely in Manistee, on location of the SS Milwaukee; moored for years in Frankfort’s harbor. Visit www.brauer.com
The festival will also welcome Bill Latka. Bill relocated his company from LA to Traverse City, and is bringing a short called Moving Pictures.
In addition, Michael Mittelstaedt and his students from the Motion Picture Arts Division at Interlochen Center for the Arts will present student produced films and participate in a question and answer session on early Saturday evening of the Festival.
