Less Ageism, Please The January 4 issue of this publication proved to me that there are some sensible voices of reason in our community regarding all things “inter-generational.” I offer a word of thanks to Elizabeth Myers. I too have worked hard for what I’ve earned throughout my years in the various positions I’ve held. While I too cannot speak for each millennial, brash generalizations about a lack of work ethic don’t sit well with me...Joe Connolly, Traverse City

Now That’s an Escalation I just read the letter from Greg and his defense of the AR15. The letter started with great information but then out of nowhere his opinion went off the rails. “The government wants total gun control and then confiscation; then the elimination of all Constitutional rights.” Wait... what?! To quote the great Ron Burgundy, “Well, that escalated quickly!”

Healthy Eating and Exercise for Children Healthy foods and exercise are important for children of all ages. It is important for children because it empowers them to do their best at school and be able to do their homework and study...

Mascots and Harsh Native American Truths The letter from the Choctaw lady deserves an answer. I have had a gutful of the whining about the fate of the American Indian. The American Indians were the losers in an imperial expansion; as such, they have, overall, fared much better than a lot of such losers throughout history. Everything the lady complains about in the way of what was done by the nasty, evil Whites was being done by Indians to other Indians long before Europeans arrived...

Snyder Must Go I believe it’s time. It’s time for Governor Snyder to go. The FBI, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the EPA Criminal Investigation Division are now investigating the Flint water crisis that poisoned thousands of people. Governor Snyder signed the legislation that established the Emergency Manager law. Since its inception it has proven to be a dismal failure...

Erosion of Public Trust Let’s look at how we’ve been experiencing global warming. Between 1979 and 2013, increases in temperature and wind speeds along with more rain-free days have combined to stretch fire seasons worldwide by 20 percent. In the U.S., the fire seasons are 78 days longer than in the 1970s...

BOURBON TAKES FLIGHT AT LOW BAR

When the Prohibition era-inspired Low Bar opened last fall in Traverse City, it replicated the same innovative spirit that had already been applied to its upstairs brother bar, 7 Monks Taproom.

Riffing off a common winery and brewery practice, owners Matt Cozzens and Jim Smolak debuted Low Bar’s new bourbon flights program, procuring varietals like the legendarily rare Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve.

“It’s hard enough to find a bottle; this is one of the only places I can think of where you can try a pour,” said bartender Jessie Deiss of the highly sought-after bourbon.

Pick any three brands off Low Bar’s bourbon, rye and Scotch list to create your own flight, containing three, .75 ounce pours for 50 percent off the listed menu price.

The basement level bar even has its own in-house bourbon, the Low Bar Single Barrel Journeyman Featherbone created exclusively for the bar by Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Mich.

Another incentive for bourbon fans: A bottle of Low Bar’s house spirit comes included free with a locker rental, where for $450 per year frequent customers can store wine and liquor bottles on-site for future visits.

Locker members also receive an engraved rocks glass, discounts on wine and spirits, x and complimentary mixers and invitations to members only events . For more information, visit lowbartc.com.
