Examine The Priorities Are you disgusted about closing schools, crumbling roads and bridges, and cuts everywhere? Investigate funding priorities of legislators. In 1985 at the request of President Reagan, Grover Norquist founded Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). For 30 years Norquist asked every federal and state candidate and incumbent to sign the pledge to vote against any increase in taxes. The cost of living has risen significantly since 1985; think houses, cars, health care, college, etc...

Make TC A Community For Children Let’s be that town that invests in children actively getting themselves to school in all of our neighborhoods. Let’s be that town that supports active, healthy, ready-to-learn children in all of our neighborhoods...

Where Are Real Christian Politicians? As a practicing Christian, I was very disappointed with the Rev. Dr. William C. Myers statements concerning the current presidential primaries (May 8). Instead of using the opportunity to share the message of Christ, he focused on Old Testament prophecies. Christ gave us a new commandment: to love one another...

Not A Great Plant Pick As outreach specialist for the Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network and a citizen concerned about the health of our region’s natural areas, I was disappointed by the recent “Listen to the Local Experts” feature. When asked for their “best native plant pick,” three of the four garden centers referenced non-native plants including myrtle, which is incredibly invasive...

Truth About Plants Your feature, “listen to the local experts” contains an error that is not helpful for the birds and butterflies that try to live in northwest Michigan. Myrtle is not a native plant. The plant is also known as vinca and periwinkle...

Ask the Real Plant Experts This letter is written to express my serious concern about a recent “Listen To Your Local Experts” article where local nurseries suggested their favorite native plant. Three of the four suggested non-native plants and one suggested is an invasive and cause of serious damage to Michigan native plants in the woods. The article is both sad and alarming...

My Plant Picks In last week’s featured article “Listen to the Local Experts,” I was shocked at the responses from the local “experts” to the question about best native plant pick. Of the four “experts” two were completely wrong and one acknowledged that their pick, gingko tree, was from East Asia, only one responded with an excellent native plant, the serviceberry tree...

They're SugarKissed

Ross Boissoneau - December 10th, 2012

   

If you find yourself hungering for a sweet treat, Christine Burke has you covered.
    Actually, you can get your yogurt covered there, with any of a multitude of toppings. Or get a tasty sweet cupcake. Or a cookie, or even some tea to cleanse your palate with, so you can have some more desserts.
    It’s all available at SugarKissed, downtown Traverse City’s newest and, well, sweetest eatery.
    SugarKissed is Burke’s brainchild, a place that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. While it is becoming known for its rotating cast of yogurt flavors, Burke wants to make clear that it’s “more than just a yogurt store.” (She's pictured here with  baker Maeda Walton.)
    How much more? Burke actually seems proudest of her cupcakes, no doubt because they’re made in house by herself and her two bakers. She notes the key lime and peanut butter chocolate as two of the most popular, but points to a special berry flavor as one unique to the store.
    “It’s blueberry made with Light of Day tea,” she said.
