Food Isn’t What It Was In regards to your article on nutrition being a key weapon for battling cancer, the problem is that much of our food has little nutritional value.

The Real Muslim Issues At least [Express columnist] Tom Kachadurian is being honest when he confesses a long-held family resentment towards Muslims

Applauding Opinions Kudos to the Northern Express for inviting guest editors to write columns. I have enjoyed the timely columns of Scott Hardy particularly

Party For The People One political party opposes minimum wage increases, pushes “right to work” legislation state-to-state, and finds it their mission to eliminate labor unions and the benefits they bring to everyday workers

Big Money Politics Wins Again I’m in agreement with Grant Parsons’ opinion column published in the 1/12 edition of the Express.

A Touch of Christmas Past

- December 2nd, 2004
A spectacular old-fashioned Christmas as seen through the eyes of contemp-orary artisans, florists and interior designers is in store for those who visit the Wellington Inn in Traverse City this weekend.
Located at the corner of Wellington and Washington streets, the Inn is hosting the Second Annual Inn at Christmastime tour, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit Toys for Tots. Following a tour of the lavishly decorated rooms throughout the four-story mansion, visitors will enjoy complementary refreshments in the third floor ballroom.
Last year, more than 700 visitors toured the 1905 neoclassical mansion, the halls of which were decked with holiday designs and decorations by 11 florists and artisans. The tour takes you back before the time of 24/7 TV and mall shopping trips to an age when the holidays included in-home entertaining, caroling, and modest gift giving between family and special friends. Surrounded by period antiques, with the scents of mulled cider, freshly baked cookies and evergreens in the air, you’ll feel time stand still.
This year’s event takes place Friday, Dec. 3 from 5-8 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Harpist Sharon Olsen and pianist Kerry Argyle will perform for visitors at Friday’s event, while Saturday afternoon will feature the music of Grace Reflections.
Tickets for the Inn at Christmastime are $12 in advance (at the Muffin Tin, Wilson’s Antiques and participating florists) or $15 at the door, with information at (231) 922-9900 or www.wellingtoninn.com. Decorators this year include Barker Creek Nursery & Landscaping, The Decorator, Distinctive Florals partnered with Weavers House of Flowers, Fisher Designs, Flower Station, Forget-Me-Not Floral, Hibbard’s Flowers & Wedding Center, The Painted Door Gallery, Plant Master’s, Premier Flowers & Gifts and Wildflowers.
Listen closely and you can almost hear the jingle of sleigh bells and the sound of carolers outside the stately mahogany and leaded glass foyer...
