Paging Doctor Dan: The doctor’s promise to repeal Obamacare reminds me of the frantic restaurant owner hurrying to install an exhaust fan after the kitchen burns down. He voted 51 times to replace the ACA law; a colossal waste of money and time. It’s here to stay and he has nothing to replace it.

Evolution Is Real Science: Breathtaking inanity. That was the term used by Judge John Jones III in his elegant evisceration of creationist arguments attempting to equate it to evolutionary theory in his landmark Kitzmiller vs. Dover Board of Education decision in 2005.

U.S. No Global Police: Steven Tuttle in the October 13 issue is correct: our military, under the leadership of the President (not the Congress) is charged with protecting the country, its citizens, and its borders. It is not charged with  performing military missions in other places in the world just because they have something we want (oil), or we don’t like their form of government, or we want to force them to live by the UN or our rules.

Graffiti: Art Or Vandalism?: I walk the [Grand Traverse] Commons frequently and sometimes I include the loop up to the cistern just to go and see how the art on the cistern has evolved. Granted there is the occasional gross image or word but generally there is a flurry of color.

NMEAC Snubbed: Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council (NMEAC) is the Grand Traverse region’s oldest grassroots environmental advocacy organization. Preserving the environment through citizen action and education is our mission.

Vote, Everyone: Election Day on November 4 is fast approaching, and now is the time to make a commitment to vote. You may be getting sick of the political ads on TV, but instead, be grateful that you live in a free country with open elections. Take the time to learn about the candidates by contacting your county parties and doing research.

Do Fluoride Research: Hydrofluorosilicic acid, H2SiF6, is a byproduct from the production of fertilizer. This liquid, not environmentally safe, is scrubbed from the chimney of the fertilizer plant, put into containers, and shipped. Now it is a ‘product’ added to the public drinking water.

Meet The Homeless: As someone who volunteers for a Traverse City organization that works with homeless people, I am appalled at what is happening at the meetings regarding the homeless shelter. The people fighting this shelter need to get to know some homeless families. They have the wrong idea about who the homeless are.

Color Your Closet!

Kristi Kurjan - April 9th, 2012  
SPRING 2012 FASHION

Bring on this spring with bright colors.

As the weather warms, add a burst of personality to your closet with brilliant prints, vivid jeans, and bold color-blocked dresses.

Here are just a few ways to have fun with this season’s most wearable fashions.

BRIGHT COLORS

This spring is saturated with color, so, stock up! A few new brightly toned items can vamp up a wardrobe. Think luscious reds, heart-stopping blues, and creamy mint.

Feeling even more adventurous? Go with a high voltage neon.

The hottest shade this season? Two words; Tangerine Tango. This color pops! According to the Pantone Color Institute, this year’s it-color for spring is Tangerine Tango.

Expect to see this glamorous hue in various silhouettes, from a flowing cocktail dress to a mini shoulder strapped handbag. It is flattering to most skin tones and the perfect color to transition from spring to summer.

COLOR-BLOCKING

Bring a burst of energy to a wardrobe with solid staples. It’s called Color-Blocking and is one of the season’s hottest trends. It is loud, bold, intense, and screams spring fashion. Color-blocking consists of mixing solid color combinations, wearing more than one color at once.

The feel is easily created through simple wardrobe staples. Make a statement with an electric pop of teal, purple, red, and yellow. Throw on a solid pink top with a pair of red pants or a mint blazer belted with a pleated orange skirt. The idea is simple yet refined.

To avoid looking like a rainbow, stick to a combination of three colors or less. Extend the possibilities by mixing and matching items to create different variations. Top it off by throwing on a pair of heels or chic pair of sunglasses.
