Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Want Your Own Art Studio?

- March 31st, 2014  

Cordia at the Village is looking for a few good artists.

They want four artists, in fact. The artists should be willing to teach a couple of classes and mentor residents in exchange for rent-free studio space for a year at the Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

Cordia is a luxury residential development for seniors that’s going to offer lots of daily activities, including art classes.

They’re hoping to get all kinds of artists to apply, whether young or well into their career, and they are open to artists who work in almost all mediums, including painting, drawing, mixed media, jewelry, woodworking and carving, sculpture, photography, puppetry, textiles, weaving, quilting, rug making, or knitting.

“Because it is a year-long residence, I think we’re looking for people who would be committed to that, first and foremost,” said Linda Price, Cordia executive director.

Price said applicants should be passionate about their art and willing to share that passion.

The call is out to all Michigan artists, but because the studio space is at the Grand Traverse Commons, those interested should be willing -- and live close enough -- to commute to Traverse City.


An advisory committee will narrow applicants down to eight or 10 candidates who will be interviewed by Cordia staff.

The four artists who are selected will be announced Aug. 1 and the residency will begin in October. After a year is up, the artists will have a chance to renew the arrangement for another year.

The studio space will be approximately 90 square feet and woodworkers will have access to a woodworking studio.

“The artists in residence will have the opportunity to create and share their passion in a beautiful studio setting with fellow artists as well as the broader Cordia community,” Price said. “As we grow and build this program it will serve as a hub of creativity for the Grand Traverse community and beyond.”

The application deadline is May 1. Artists can find application information at www.CordiaTC.com/artisan and mail the application and materials to: Cordia at Grand Traverse Commons ATTN: Linda Price 600 Cottageview Drive Traverse City, MI 49684
