Save America

I read your paper because it’s free and I enjoy the ads. But I struggle through the left wing tripe that fills every page, from political cartoons to the vitriolic pen of Mr. Tuttle. What a shame this beautiful area of the state has such an abundance of Socialist/democrats. Or perhaps the silent majority chooses to stay silent...

Doom, Yet a Cup Half Full

In the news we are told of the civil unrest at Ferguson, Mo; ISIS war radicals in Iraq and Syria; the great corporate tax heist at home. You name it. Trouble, trouble, everywhere. It seems to me the U.S. Congress is partially to blame...

Uncomfortable Questions

defending the positions of the Israelis vs Hamas are far too narrow. Even Mr. Tuttle seems to have failed in looking deeply into the divide. American media is not biased against Israel, nor or are they pro Palestine or Hamas...

The Evolution of Man Revisited

As the expectations of manhood evolve, so too do the rules of love. In Mr. Holmes’s statement [from “Our Therapist Will See Us Now” in last week’s issue] he narrows the key to a successful relationship to the basic need to have your wants and needs understood, and it is on this point I expand...

With a tear in my eye and a heavy heart, I read that there are politicians in this state who want to reassert the voting process to silence the votes of 450,000 citizens in federal elections. I am a true believer that we are citizens of the United States of America first and citizens of the State of Michigan second.

What they are trying to do is a despotic exercise of power.

The question is, if any governor, senator, or representative, now or one hundred years from now, would ever vote to enact such a bill. Would he or she be guilty of committing an act of tyranny against the citizens of this state and a breach of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States?

The answer is blown in the wind.

Edward Fay, Honor

Correction Two errors were made in last week’s issue. The “Rock’s 10 Fashionably Great“ story should have included Kristi Kates’ byline. The “Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson Return to Interlochen” story inadvertently credited Kates for the story; it was written by Ross Boissoneau. We apologize for these errors.

The Run the Ridge 10k Team Relay on May 10 takes place at Timber Ridge Resort in Traverse City; NOT Cadillac. The correct registration link is: https://events.bytepro.net/2014RunTheRidge
