Inalienable Rights This is a response to the “No More State Theatre” in your August 24th edition. I think I will not be the only response to this pathetic and narrow-minded letter that seems rather out of place in the northern Michigan that I know. To think we will not be getting your 25 cents for the movie you refused to see, but more importantly we will be without your “two cents” on your thoughts of a marriage at the State Theatre...

Enthusiastically Democratic Since I was one of the approximately 160 people present at when Senator Debbie Stabenow spoke on August 14 in Charlevoix, I was surprised to read in a letter to Northern Express that there was a “rather muted” response to Debbie’s announcement that she has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president...

Not Hurting I surely think the State Theatre will survive not having the homophobic presence of Colleen Smith and her family attend any matinees. I think “Ms.” Smith might also want to make sure that any medical personnel, bank staff, grocery store staff, waiters and/or waitress, etc. are not homosexual before accepting any service or product from them...

Stay Home I did not know whether to laugh or cry when I read the letter of the extremely homophobic, “disgusted” writer. She now refuses to patronize the State Theatre because she evidently feels that its confines have been poisoned by the gay wedding ceremony held there...

Keep Away In response to Colleen Smith of Cadillac who refused to bring her family to the State Theatre because there was a gay wedding there: Keep your 25 cents and your family out of Traverse City...

Celebrating Moore And A Theatre I was 10 years old when I had the privilege to see my first film at the State Theatre. I will never forget that experience. The screen was almost the size of my bedroom I shared with my older sister. The bursting sounds made me believe I was part of the film...

Outdated Thinking This letter is in response to Colleen Smith. She made public her choice to no longer go to the State Theater due to the fact that “some homosexuals” got married there. I’m not outraged by her choice; we don’t need any more hateful, self-righteous bigots in our town. She can keep her 25 cents...

Mackinac Pipeline Must Be Shut Down Crude oil flowing through Enbridge’s 60-yearold pipeline beneath the Mackinac Straits and the largest collection of fresh water on the planet should be a serious concern for every resident of the USA and Canada. Enbridge has a very “accident” prone track record...

Your Rights To Colleen, who wrote about the State Theatre: Let me thank you for sharing your views; I think most of us are well in support of the first amendment, because as you know- it gives everyone the opportunity to express their opinions. I also wanted to thank Northern Express for not shutting down these types of letters right at the source but rather giving the community a platform for education...

No Role Model [Fascinating Person from last week’s issue] Jada quoted: “I want to be a role model for girls who are interested in being in the outdoors.” I enjoy being in the outdoors, but I don’t want to kill animals for trophy...

Pro Wrestling Hits the Kaliseum

Ross Boissoneau - April 28th, 2014  

Kalkaska’s Kaliseum might never be the same again. Battleground VI is coming to town May 3, bringing with it 14 brawny professionals and one of wrestling’s superstars: Scott Hall, better known as Razor Ramon.

“There will be wrestlers from all over the Midwest,” said Kalkaska native and wrestler Mikey Zeroe. “It’s the biggest show we’ve ever done there.”

In the show, wrestlers compete in one-on-one matches as well as a tag-team match, in which the audience gets a hand in selecting the teams.

Zeroe said the allure of wrestling lies in its storylines combined with non-stop action.

“It’s like a live action movie, happening right in front of you,” he said. “[Except] you only get one take.”

Zeroe is not generally viewed as wearing the white hat. In fact, he revels in being one of the bad guys.

“I’m the most hated man in Northern Michigan,” he said.

Produced and promoted by Mr. Chainsaw Pro Wrestling, Battleground VI is not exactly the spectacle of a huge-scale World Wrestling Entertainment production. But Zeroe said the upside is the audience can get up close and personal with the action.

“There will be between 200 and 500 people. It’s an intimate setting,” he said. “Anything you yell, [the wrestlers] can hear you.”

Hall, a star from the 1990s, will not be in the ring, but will be hosting a meet and greet before the matches, signing autographs and taking pictures. He will also be hosting a special segment of his show “Last Call with Scott Hall.”

Hall was one of the biggest names in wrestling in the 1990s, alongside people like Sting, Lex Luger, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

“He was a superstar in the 90s boom period,” Zeroe said. Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as Razor Ramon earlier this month. But that didn’t stop Zeroe from issuing a personal challenge.

“Yeah, I called Scott Hall out,” said Zeroe.

Zeroe says he plans on confronting him during the live “Last Call with Scott Hall” segment at Battleground VI.

The show starts at 7:30pm with a meet and greet with Hall. Ringside VIP tickets are $25 and include a meet and greet with Hall at 7pm.

General admission tickets are $15. Tickets are available at the Kaliseum Recreation Complex in Kalkaska, Front St. Tattoo in Traverse City, J&M’s Country Corners in Mancelona, or at mcpwonline.com.
