I Love The Eighth Street Changes I read the letter in the 4/13 paper about not liking the Eighth Street changes, and it spurred me to let you know that I do like the Eighth Street changes, as do many of my neighboring residents.

Michigan Taxes Equal Uncompetitive State Michigan has been losing population. According to the eighth edition of the “Rich States, Poor States” report released by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), states with low taxes have been gaining population.

“Déjà Vu, All Over Again!” Sometimes that Yogi Berra quote is pitch perfect.  Back in 1993, Michigan’s roads were falling apart. Governor Engler refused to raise motor fuel taxes -- he issued bonds instead and kicked that problem down the road.

No To Fracking I would like to respond to the article in the Apr 27th issue regarding fracking.

Find Something Better Our politicians in Lansing love to talk about “no more taxes.” I agree that they seem to be against any new taxes on the very wealthy and businesses, but seem to have no problem increasing taxes on the poor and the middle class.

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.
