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.

He has a master’s degree in engineering and she is doing her residency in Chicago and plans to specialize in oncology.

Dining C.J.Ray Take a Break at Breakers in Topinabee
By C.J. Ray
At the crossroads of good times and good food, sits a rustic, lakeside tavern loaded with history, dating back to 1940. The Breakers Bar & Grill sits across the street from Mullet Lake in the small town of Topinabee. Antique photographs from the area cover the knotty pine walls.
“The Breakers is a local watering hole for everybody,” says owner Derrick Schittekat. “It’s gone through several changes since the 1940s. The horseshoe bar, and kitchen were added a few years ago, and we just finished our exterior patio, offering outdoor dining with a spectacular view of beautiful Mullet Lake.”
