Facts About Trails I would like to correct some misinformation provided in Kristi Kates’ article about the Shore-to-Shore Trail in your April 18 issue. The Shore-to-Shore Trail is not the longest continuous trail in the Lower Peninsula. That honor belongs to the North Country Trail (NCT), which stretches for over 400 miles in the Lower Peninsula. In fact, 100 miles of the NCT is within a 30-minute drive of Traverse City, and is maintained by the Grand Traverse Hiking Club...

North Korea Is Bluffing I eagerly read Jack Segal’s columns and attend his lectures whenever possible. However, I think his April 24th column falls into an all too common trap. He casually refers to a nuclear-armed North Korea when there is no proof whatever that North Korea has any such weapons. Sure, they have set off some underground explosions but so what? Tonga could do that. Every nuclear-armed country on Earth has carried out at least one aboveground test, just to prove they could do it if for no other reason. All we have is North Korea’s word for their supposed capabilities, which is no proof at all...

Double Dipping? In Greg Shy’s recent letter, he indicated that his Social Security benefit was being unfairly reduced simply due to the fact that he worked for the government. Somehow I think something is missing here. As I read it this law is only for those who worked for the government and are getting a pension from us generous taxpayers. Now Greg wants his pension and he also wants a full measure of Social Security benefits even though he did not pay into Social Security...

Critical Thinking Needed Our media gives ample coverage to some presidential candidates calling each other a liar and a sleaze bag. While entertaining to some, this certainly should lower one’s respect for either candidate. This race to the bottom comes as no surprise given their lack of respect for the rigors of critical thinking. The world’s esteemed scientists take great steps to preserve the integrity of their findings. Not only are their findings peer reviewed by fellow experts in their specialty, whenever possible the findings are cross-checked by independent studies...

Harbor 22 Bar & Grill offers eclectic, tasty menu

Ross Boissoneau - December 17th, 2012



  At Harbor 22, it’s all about the teamwork with a staff of enthusiastic chefs and managers.
  So, what about the food? Local whitefish makes an appearance, of course, but in some unexpected ways. In addition to a crusted whitefish with lemon risotto, there’s smoked whitefish pate with caramelized onion, dill crostini and capers and blackened whitefish tacos with pickled jalapeno slaw.
    The Great Lakes Reuben includes house-smoked pastrami and sauerkraut from The Brinery in Ann Arbor. Throw in bread from Bay Bread, meats from Maxbauer’s, and a host of local beers and wines, and you’re on the right track.
  Add bourbon-glazed meatloaf, crispy brussels sprouts, fresh pasta and the charcuterie -- a selection of smoked meats and seafood -- and you've got "a lot of nice flavors that work well together."
