Benishek Doesn’t Understand

Congressman Benishek claims to understand the needs of families, yet he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would cause about 10 million people to lose their health insurance. He must think as long as families can hold fundraisers they don’t need insurance...

(Un)Truth In Advertising

Constant political candidate ads on TV are getting to be too much to bear 45 days before the election...

Rare Tuttle Rebuttal

Finally, I disagree with Stephen Tuttle. His “Cherry Bomb” column in the 8/4/14 issue totally dismayed me. I always love his wit and the slamming of the 1 percent. His use of fact and hyperbole highlights the truth; until “Cherry Bomb.” Oh man, Stephen...

Say No To Fluoride

Do you or your child’s teeth have white, yellow, orange, brown, stains, spots, streaks, cloudy splotches or pitting? If so, you may be among millions of Americans who now have a condition called dental fluorosis...

Questions Of Freedom

The administration’s “Affordable Health Care Act” has ordered religious orders to provide contraception and chemical abortions against the church’s God given beliefs and teachings … an interesting order, considering the First Amendment’s clear prohibitions...

Stop The Insults & Talk

I found it interesting that Ms. Minervini used the Northern Express to push the Safe Harbor agenda for a 90-bed homeless shelter in Traverse City with a tactic that is also being utilized by members of the city commission. Those of us who oppose the project are being labeled as uncompassionate citizens...

Roads and Republicans

Bikefest on a Roll in Grayling

Express Staff - September 9th, 2004
Grayling is spinning its wheels with its first Michigan Bike Festival this weekend, Sept. 10-12, with a blend of bands, bicycles and bonfires.
“It’s been in the works for a year now and we’re hoping this will be a major event that will draw people from across the state for years to come,” says Dick Fultz, who owns the Cross Country Ski Shop and Bicycle Shop in town.
The Bike Festival hopes to turn out hordes of road and mountain bikers at the Hanson Hills Recreation Area in Grayling, Fultz says. Rustic camping is available along with 10 miles of single-track for those itching to get in gear.
Friday night kicks off with the burning of a bike ceremonial bonfire to the sounds of the Jelly Roll Blues Band. Carbo-load with a pancake breakfast on Saturday for a day of road and mountain bike rides along with a bike vendor exhibition, games, clinics, competitions, trials, riding demos and music. Capping the evening will be jams by the Blues Burner and Frostbitten Grass bands along with a bonfire.
Fultz says not to party too hearty, however, because the MMBA championship mountain bike race will be held just up the road at Aspen Park in Gaylord on Sunday.
