Real Brownfields Deserve Dollars I read with interest the story on Brownfield development dollars in the July 20 issue. I applaud Dan Lathrop and other county commissioners who voted “No” on the Randolph Street project...

Hopping Mad Carlin Smith is hopping mad (“Will You Get Mad With Me?” 7-20-15). Somebody filed a fraudulent return using his identity, and he’s not alone. The AP estimates the government “pays more than $5 billion annually in fraudulent tax refunds.” Well, many of us have been hopping mad for years. This is because the number one tool Congress has used to fix this problem has been to cut the IRS budget –by $1.2 billion in the last 5 years...

Just Grumbling, No Solutions Mark Pontoni’s grumblings [recent Northern Express column] tell us much about him and virtually nothing about those he chooses to denigrate. We do learn that Pontoni may be the perfect political candidate. He’s arrogant, opinionated and obviously dimwitted...

A Racist Symbol I have to respond to Gordon Lee Dean’s letter claiming that the confederate battle flag is just a symbol of southern heritage and should not be banned from state displays. The heritage it represents was the treasonous effort to continue slavery by seceding from a democratic nation unwilling to maintain such a consummate evil...

Not So Thanks I would like to thank the individual who ran into and knocked over my Triumph motorcycle while it was parked at Lowe’s in TC on Friday the 24th. The $3,000 worth of damage was greatly appreciated. The big dent in the gas tank under the completely destroyed chrome badge was an especially nice touch...

Color Your Closet!

VIBRANT JEANS

Colorful denim is an extension of the color-blocking trend that cannot be overlooked. For those who are going to splurge on only one item this spring make it a pair of colorful skinny jeans.

Even in brilliant hues, the tailored denim is still low-key. And don’t be afraid of going bold.

“I couldn’t be more excited about colored jeans being back in style,” said MacKenzie Bickel of Traverse City, who just purchased a pair of green tailored denim jeans.

“Without a doubt, they’ll be a staple piece for my color-blocking styles or just a statement for the simplest of outfits.”

Edgy Prints & Shapes

Take the bright trend a step further with colorful yet edgy prints. These fabrics encompass stylish prints including chevrons, florals, geometric shapes, and futuristic patterns.

“Colored prints are flooding the fashion world right now,” said Bickel. “Whether it be a hand bag, dress, or an eye catching top, the print allows me to show a little personality in my everyday wear.”

Look for feminine dresses in this season’s high-low hemline silhouette which has a high cut front hemline with a lower cut back hemline. The lightweight look is whimsical and flattering on most body types.

PASTEL HUES

Feeling more beautiful than bold? This spring’s sweet pastels are shades of sky, sorbets, and mint.

Their feminine appeal is low key and comes in light weight fabrics, perfect for the day or night.

Pastel needn’t mean boring. Soft shades and creamy neutrals feel flirty when paired with wispy fabrics and pleats. Looking chic never felt so good!
