Stop The Games On Campus

The Truth About Fatbikes

While we appreciate the fatbike trail coverage, the quote from the article below is exactly what we demonstrated not to be true in most cases last season...

Man Has Environmental Responsibility

I tend to agree with Thomas Kachadurian (“Playing God,” Sept. 8) that we should not interfere with the power of nature by deciding what is “native” and what is not. Man usually does what is better for man (or so we believe), hence the survival and population growth of our species...

The Bush & Obama Facts

Don Turner’s letter to the editor on 8/25/14 stated that there has never been a more corrupt, dishonest, etc. set of politicians in the White House. He states no facts, but here are a few...

Ban Pesticides

I grew up downstate in a neighborhood without pesticides. I was always very healthy. Living here, I have become ill. So I did my research and found out a lot about these poison agents called pesticides (herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, etc) that are being spread throughout this community, accumulating in our air, water and soil...

Respect for Presidents?

Recently we read the Letter to the Editor that encouraged us to stop characterizing President Obama as anything other than an upstanding, moral, inspiring “first Black President”.

Interlochen 2011 lineup

- May 2nd, 2011
Interlochen’s Summer Concert Series caters to every interest
Interlochen’s most happenin’ season in years brings several new cultural
icons to the Arts Festival this summer, along with some old favorites.
The former includes the likes of revered songwriter Elvis Costello, the
indie acoustic pop of The Decemberists, alt-country chanteuse Lucinda
Williams, and country rocker Dierks Bentley. The latter offers
Interlochen veterans such as Leo Kottke, The Temptations, The Beach Boys,
and Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” which is reputed to be
on track for retirement after this season.
For the classic rock crowd, Interlochen will offer the recently-revived
sounds of Steely Dan along with perennial hit-meisters, Chicago. Youthful
audiences will enjoy a reprise of indie rockers Guster; while if mood is
your thing, check out the sensitive sounds of Broadway star Adam Pascal or
folkie Rufus Wainwright.
Stage acts this season include the soaring modern dance of the Trey
McIntyre Project, the toe-tapping Irish Fest with Leahy and Cathie Ryan, a
performance of “The Merchant of Venice.,” and “Bubblemania,” a Blue Man
Group-style take on soap bubbles.
