Perplexing Eighth Street Changes I’m writing to you about the way 8th Street in Traverse City is organized. I commute on 8th Street daily like hundreds of others.

115 Years of Injustice Investigative reporter Pat Sullivan’s March 23 article “BURNOUT” exposed for the first time to many northern Michigan residents the 115-year-old tragedy that took place at Burt Lake in October of 1900.

Real Support for Single Moms

The ad for the strip club in the June 9 issue was pretty terrible. “Supporting single moms one dollar at a time” is cruel and belittling to the women who have no other option but to strip for a living to feed their kids. The children of women who do this work often live chaotic lives with mothers who resort to alcohol and drugs in order to stand their jobs. Supporting single moms is giving them a shot at a decent job at a living wage and reliable, quality child care, not throwing your spare change at them while they take off their clothes. Northern Express is better than this. You don’t need this kind of ad revenue.
