Correction: In our recent article on Alpenfest music, we accidentally printed a photo of country singer Alan Jackson instead of Alpenfest country performer Alan Turner. Express regrets the error.

More Density? Many discussions/debates have been held re: 10-story buildings and increasing the density in Traverse City. I wonder how many people have considered the possibility of Cherry Festival-size crowds and density 365 days a year in Traverse City...

Send Them Packing If [Grand Traverse County Commissioner] Christine Maxbauer had killed or injured a child, would [County Administrator] Tom Menzel continue to make the statement that “this is personal?” Anyone drunk and driving a car at 3pm has made a poor judgement call...

No Raise From reading your recent letter on raising minimum wages to $15 an hour by 2018 you should’ve studied your Economics 101 course a little harder. A business just cannot raise their employees’ wages to $15 an hour and not come up with a way to offset that high of a wage increase...
