The Climate Clarified

Climate change isn’t an easy subject. A class I’m taking compared it to medicine in a way that was helpful for me: Climate scientists are like planetary physicians. Our understanding of medicine is incomplete, but what we know is useful...

Beware Non-Locally Grown

The article “Farm Fresh?” couldn’t be any more true than exactly stated. As an avid shopper at the local farm markets I want to know “exactly” what I am buying, from GMO free to organic or not organic, sprayed or not sprayed and with what...

Media Bias Must End

I wish to thank Joel Weberman for his letter “Seeking Balanced Israel Coverage.” The pro-Palestinian bias includes TV news coverage...

Proud of My President

The world is a mess. According to many conservative voices, it would not be in such a mess if Obama was not the president. I am finally understanding that the problem with our president is that he is too thoughtful, too rational, too realistic, too inclined to see things differently and change his mind, too compassionate to be the leader of a free world...

Obamacare’s benefits Three years into Obamacare, politicians are still fighting over it and the public is still divided about it. Yet millions of Americans have benefitted from it...

Whither Interlochen? While reading your Best of Northern Michigan edition, I wondered when the Village of Interlochen moved to Benzie County? I have lived in Interlochen for 37 years and it’s always been in Grand Traverse County...

Pretentious MyStyle When did pretentious become stylish in Traverse City? I am a local born and raised gal who has been a fan of Northern Express until the recent MyStyle article featured a “banana bread princess” New Yorker (who recently moved here) fashioning a $2,742 outfit...

Clueless representative Some of our citizens find Rep. Ray Franz and his staff unresponsive to requests for information about dates for town meetings and about global warming.

Regarding global warming, Franz has unburdened himself during his campaign. He very clearly stated in a debate with Alan O’Shea in Glen Arbor that the whole batch of work on warming was and is “a hoax.” It’s a hoax, he claimed, in the opinion of “30,000 scientists” who were polled in 1998 by a poorly based group of petitioners...

Rigged arbitration Corporate kangaroo courts have quietly usurped our constitutional right to trial by judge and jury... welcome to arbitration where corporations win 99% of cases...

Peak government Remember when America was running out of oil in the early ’70s, along with concerns over acid rain and ozone layer depletion? Remember when “climate change” was politicized into global warming and now back again to climate change, thanks to Al Gore?...

Correction Due to an editing error, Andrew Dost was mistakenly named as the bass player for the band fun. in last week’s Express...

Immigration, Birth Control & Population

The recent and enormous increase in young illegal immigrants (mostly from Central America) crossing our southern border highlights the need for an immigration bill that could provide a bipartisan solution to this current and significant threat to our country...

Guns in Schools Are Bullying

State law defines bullying in the school as activity that “adversely affects the ability of a pupil to participate in or benefit from the school district’s or public school’s educational programs or activities by placing the pupil in reasonable fear of physical harm or by causing emotional distress.”...

Global Warming Debate Over

Global warming will become the mother of all environmental issues because it strikes at the very root of economic activity: the use of energy. So perhaps not surprisingly, the same people who questioned acid rain, doubted the ozone hole, and defended tobacco now attack the scientific evidence of global warming...

Learn More About Fluoride Dangers

The issue about fluoride in our municipal water is not going away - for good reason. Concerned people who have studied the complete story about fluoride are taking action to inform the public about its extreme toxicity and health dangers...

Open Carry An Uproar To Come

While perhaps unnecessary, I’m writing in response to Anne Stanton’s “Open Carry” article of 1 July. Given the increasingly common discussion of this issue in our region, I found it helpful in that it identifies an emerging discussion and has provided a fairly neutral platform from which the discussion can continue...
