Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

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.
