Doctor Dan? After several email conversations with Rep. Benishek, he has confirmed that he doesn’t have a clue of what he does. Here’s why...

In Favor Of Our Parks [Traverse] City Proposal 1 is a creative way to improve our city parks without using our tax dollars. By using a small portion of our oil and gas royalties from the Brown Bridge Trust Fund, our parks can be improved for our children and grandchildren.

From January 1970 Popular Mechanics: “Drastic climate changes will occur within the next 50 years if the use of fossil fuels keeps rising at current rates.” That warning comes from Eugene K. Peterson of the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management.

Newcomers Might Leave: Recently we had guests from India who came over as students with the plan to stay in America. He has a master’s degree in engineering and she is doing her residency in Chicago and plans to specialize in oncology. They talked very candidly about American politics and said that after observing...

Someone Is You: On Sept 21, I joined the 400,000 who took to the streets of New York in the People’s Climate March, followed by a UN Climate Summit and many speeches. On October 13, the Pentagon issued a report calling climate change a significant threat to national security requiring immediate action. How do we move from marches, speeches and reports to meaningful work on this problem? In NYC I read a sign with a simple answer...

Necessary To Pay: Last fall, Grand Traverse voters authorized a new tax to fix roads. It is good, it is necessary.

The Real Reasons for Wolf Hunt: I have really been surprised that no one has been commenting on the true reason for the wolf hunt.

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.
