Worry About Legals

I can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the “Affordable” Care Act...

Comparable programs are used everyday, every hour, in almost any science, manufacturing, financial industry, etc., to conduct measurement and risk. Why would we not want to protect ourselves from terrorists or those that wish us harm, in a similar way...

Not a fan of the Bijou I don’t believe the Traverse City Commission has the authority to give away parkland and the buildings which stand on it (to create the new Bijou Theatre). This property belongs to the people of Traverse City, and for any project of this scope, the citizens should vote...

Mixed messages While I often wonder whether some attorneys have a conscience, or, if so, do they ever listen to it, it is true that in our society every person who can afford to is entitled to buy the services of an attorney...

Time to ban fracking Recent exposure of the on-site water shortages experienced by Encana Corporation as it attempted to frack a new well in Kalkaska County highlight the dangers of the new technology for extracting natural gas...

Overtaxed... I a big fan of columnist Stephen Tuttle, however, his recent article regarding how we are unwilling to help pay for infrastructure repairs, and the electric grid, etc., misses the point...

Correction The Traverse City Record-Eagle never received a letter from two high school students regarding a controversy in the Black & Gold newspaper at Central High School, as claimed erroneously in last week’s Random Thoughts column.
