Save America

I read your paper because it’s free and I enjoy the ads. But I struggle through the left wing tripe that fills every page, from political cartoons to the vitriolic pen of Mr. Tuttle. What a shame this beautiful area of the state has such an abundance of Socialist/democrats. Or perhaps the silent majority chooses to stay silent...

Doom, Yet a Cup Half Full

In the news we are told of the civil unrest at Ferguson, Mo; ISIS war radicals in Iraq and Syria; the great corporate tax heist at home. You name it. Trouble, trouble, everywhere. It seems to me the U.S. Congress is partially to blame...

Way Cool? Not. Coolness comes from the streets - not government initiatives & arts organizations

Features Oran Kelley There has been a recent vogue in Michigan (and in a lot of other places) for the new urbanist terminology of Richard Florida, whose book *The Rise of the Creative Class* famously occupied space on Governor Granholm‘s bedstand. If you‘ve heard the mantra like repetition of the word “cool“ in relation to cities or downtown districts, then you‘ve heard the distant echoes of the ideas of Richard Florida.

Creationism has No Place in our Schools

Other Opinions Oran Kelley It seems Michigan may soon join the ranks of Dayton, Tennessee and the state of Kansas as world centers of Luddism and willful ignorance. This, at least, if a proposal by Michigan State Representative Ken Bradstreet is approved by our lawmakers.
