Real Brownfields Deserve Dollars I read with interest the story on Brownfield development dollars in the July 20 issue. I applaud Dan Lathrop and other county commissioners who voted “No” on the Randolph Street project...

Hopping Mad Carlin Smith is hopping mad (“Will You Get Mad With Me?” 7-20-15). Somebody filed a fraudulent return using his identity, and he’s not alone. The AP estimates the government “pays more than $5 billion annually in fraudulent tax refunds.” Well, many of us have been hopping mad for years.

We like to visit the several locally owned shops and every trip through town includes a stop at Cafe Santé.

Features Ross Boissoneau While Northern Michigan’s ski resorts always pin their biggest hopes on cooperation from Mother Nature, they also put their best foot forward with entertainment, lodging, dining and other activities. From Cadillac to Harbor Springs, skiers and snowboarders can find a host of slopes and plenty to do after a strenuous day outside.
