Disheartened

While observing Fox News, it was disheartening to see what their viewers were subjected to. It seems the Republicans’ far right wing extremists are conveying their idealistic visions against various nationalities, social diversities or political beliefs with an absence of emotion concerning women’s health issues, children’s rights, voter suppression, Seniors, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid...

Things That Matter

All of us in small towns and large not only have the right to speak on behalf of our neighbors and ourselves, we have the duty and responsibility to do so -- and 238 years ago, we made a clear Declaration to do just that...

An Anecdote Driven Mind

So, is Thomas Kachadurian now the Northern Express’ official resident ranter? His recent factfree, hard-hearted column suggests it. While others complain about the poor condition of Michigan’s roads and highways, he rants against those we employ to fix them...

No On Prop 1

Are we being conned? Are those urging us to say “yes” to supposedly ”revenue neutral” ballot proposal 1 on August 5 telling us all the pertinent facts? Proposal 1 would eliminate the personal property tax businesses pay to local governments, replacing its revenue with a share of Michigan’s 6 percent use tax paid by us all on out-of-state purchases, hotel accommodations, some equipment rentals, and telecommunications...

Fix VA Tragedy

The problems within the Veterans Administration identified under former President Bush continue to hinder the delivery of quality health care to the influx of physically wounded and emotionally damaged young men and women...

Women Take Note

I find an interesting link between the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby and the crisis on the southern border. Angry protesters shout at children to go home. These children are scared, tired, hungry and thirsty, sent to US prisons awaiting deportation to a country where they may very likely be killed...

Thanks for Reconstruction

We would like to thank several local heroes for putting Michigan Artists Gallery back together again after being closed for 45 days with flood damage.

Jason Harrall and crew from Boulder Builders, Larry Fox, Victor Dinsmoore, and Matt Torres did a tremendous job in giving us a beautiful new look and rehab while lifting our spirits. Frozen pipes and hundreds of pieces of artwork do not mix well, but our recovery is complete and we welcome everyone to drop by and see our newly restored gallery in Suttons Bay.

Sue Ann Round, Suttons Bay

Corrections:

Our May 5 Cover Photo was taken by Scott Castelein of Lake Street Media, courtesy of Petoskey Area Visitor’s Bureau.

In our May 5 issue, we mistakenly identified the owners of North Perk Coffee in Petoskey… their correct names are John McNeil and Brittany Brubaker.
