by Dr. Buono in the November 10 Northern Express. While I applaud your enthusiasm embracing a market solution for global climate change and believe that this is a vital piece of the overall approach, it is almost laughable and at least naive to believe that your Representative Mr.
Applauding Boyne City: A wonderful thing happened in Boyne City. As of May 13, citizens are drinking clean water again. It feels great taking a good long drink knowing it can’t hurt you or anyone; not children, family, friends or animals, because water fluoridation has been stopped.
