Buy ‘Made in USA’

I love buying products made in the U.S.A. In a second-hand store the other day, I realized my generation missed out on the good feeling of holding something of great quality, turning it over, and seeing, “Made in U.S.A.”

But there is a brilliant and bold loophole, second-hand stores. They are proliferating here in Traverse City! Brilliant because it is more cost effective to buy quality used products. Bold because buying something made 50 years ago in the U.S.A., that still works better than something made at present, in country X, or shall I just say it, China, is a bold statement in itself...

Silent Disco and Lindsay Lou

Features Rick Coates The term “Silent Disco” seems more like an oxymoron than the latest entertainment craze. Yet crowds have been jamming the Silent Disco tent at several festivals in the area ever since Porterhouse Productions introduced the concept to the region a couple of years ago at the Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival.

Indian River motocross Count me as one of the “whine asses” who is very concerned about the consequences of a large motocross racetrack (think 30-40 two-cycle dirt bikes, trucks, or snowmobiles per race), with races from Friday to Sunday, not counting practice times. Add camping sites for thousands of RVs or tents, and day parking accommodating 20,000-plus fans...

Boozers a bummer A recent letter bemoaned the fact that one can’t imbibe on restaurant patios in Boyne City. Good for Boyne City...

Preaching discrimination In response to the letter, “Yahweh’s view on gays” from Gordon Lee Dean from Troop 10 (6/24), I do believe you have a right to your views and religious beliefs. However you need to understand not everyone who attends Boy Scouts is affiliated with Christianity...

Boy Scouts & Christians Yahweh did NOT write the Bible - fallible humans did (re: “Yahweh’s view on gays.”) Scouting doesn’t teach “Christian morals” it teaches citizenship, leadership, sharing, healthy conservation and outdoorsmanship, and hopefully, morals are a by-product...

Fracking or nuclear? I’m sympathetic to Peggy Case’s letter (“Time to ban fracking,” June 17), but the current move to ban coal and push wind means more gas-burning turbines to pick up the load in the lulls. More gas turbines means more fracking, not less...

Great Lakes Boating is Back

Features Becky Kalajian “I think the typical boat buyer might be in a stronger position financially, whether they’re looking for new or used,” said Stover, who sells new and used boats worldwide. “Others have been sitting on the sidelines for a few years; now it’s time to participate.

Reversing the Damage

Features Ross Boissoneau “New Year’s Eve we went to Funistrada. We called in advance and I said, ‘I have a challenge for you.’ The chef prepared a stir-fry. It was really good. He came out and talked to me while we were having dinner and said if you like it we may keep it on the menu.
