Michigan’s Depleted Funds So now we know why the Michigan legislators wanted to rush Proposal 1 down our throats.

Legality of Marriage & Divorce An article in the May 25th issue of Time reveals that: “We now have reached a point where fewer than half of kids leaving high school will have their parents living together.”

Cold Paradise Your May 18 cover story “Why is Northern Michigan So White?” is preposterous. For starters, we have plenty of diversity in this region: German, Polish, Swedish, Lithuanian, Norwegian, French Canadian, etc. – all groups that flourish in colder, harsh winter climates.

Christopher Cross Sails On

Kristi Kates - March 31st, 2014  

It was his triple Grammy Award-winning 1979 soft-rock song, “Sailing,” that put him on the map – and in untold grocery stores, elevators, and doctors’ offices. Now singer/songwriter Christopher Cross is back, promoting a new live two-CD album, “A Night in Paris.”

In the 80s, Cross had eight songs on the Billboard Top 40 charts. Singles like “Ride Like the Wind” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” won him five Grammys and an Academy Award. While that might be enough to make a man rest on his laurels, Cross, now in his early 60s, kept making albums every few years, and he continues to perform about 100 live shows each year.

The Texas native is bringing his new tunes and old favorites to the Little River Casino Resort in Manistee at 8pm on Sat., April 5. For tickets and more, visit lrcr.com, or call the box office at (800) 585-3737. For more on Cross, visit christophercross.com.
