Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Patrick Sullivan - July 18th, 2011
Public Safety: Regional Eye on Crime
Fatal Traffic Crash
An 18-year-old Benzie County woman died after she crashed her car on Mud
Lake Road near Interlochen.
Allyson Kaye Mayer struck a tree around 4:30 a.m. on July 8, Grand
Traverse Sheriff Lt. Bryan Marrow said. Mayer, who had an Interlochen
address, was not wearing a seatbelt.
The crash was discovered on the remote dirt road by a passing motorist who
called 911. Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene at 8:13 a.m.

Assault and Vandalism
TC Police responded to a disorderly person complaint at a bar near closing
time on July 9.
Upon arrival officers found a fight in progress at the Union Street
Station, which they broke up, Capt. Steve Morgan said.
Steven Wayne Pendill, 42, Traverse City, had allegedly punched another
patron in the eye and injured him. When police attempted to take him in
for assault, though, he would not go easily. He fought with officers as
they attempted to place him into a patrol car and continued to fight once
seated, Morgan said.
In addition to a charge of assault and battery, the man also faces charges
of malicious destruction of property for allegedly kicking out a door
window on a police cruiser and assault charges for fighting with police.
Pendill was on probation for third-offense drunk driving when the ordeal
occurred.

Dog Death
A dog died after a casino-goer left two pets inside a parked car outside
of the Little River Casino in Manistee.
Another patron called security after seeing two dogs panting and desperate
inside a parked car with the windows rolled up on July 10, tribal
spokesman Glenn Zaring said. Tribal police and casino security responded
immediately, he said.
“One of the dogs had already succumbed to the heat and the other dog was
in pretty bad shape,” Zaring said. The other dog was taken to shade, given
water and then transported to a vet clinic where it survived.
Zaring said the case is under investigation to determine if the pet owner
should face charges.
The high temp-erature that afternoon in Manistee was 84 degrees with a
heat index of 90, according to the National Weather Service.

Bank Robbery
Police nabbed an alleged bank robber July 13 accused of staging a heist at
the West Michigan Credit Union in Cadillac.
Wexford County Sheriff’s deputies received an alarm at 4:52 p.m. A lone
white male entered the credit union armed with a silver semi-automatic
handgun. The heavy-set suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of
money in a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck.
A little over 24 hours later, a 33-year-old man was arrested by sheriff’s
deputies, state police, and FBI agents.

Felonious Assault
An adult foster care home resident is in jail after he allegedly went
after his roommate and a staff member with a hammer.
Jerry Athan, 43, faces two counts of felonious assault in Cheboygan County
after the incident that happened in a home in Afton at around 10:15 p.m.
on July 11, according to state police from the Cheboygan post.
Athan retrieved a small hammer from a dresser drawer and launched the
attack before the staff member and roommate were able to get out of the
room and close a door that separated them from the suspect, police said.
