Benishek Doesn’t Understand

Congressman Benishek claims to understand the needs of families, yet he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would cause about 10 million people to lose their health insurance. He must think as long as families can hold fundraisers they don’t need insurance...

(Un)Truth In Advertising

Constant political candidate ads on TV are getting to be too much to bear 45 days before the election...

Rare Tuttle Rebuttal

Finally, I disagree with Stephen Tuttle. His “Cherry Bomb” column in the 8/4/14 issue totally dismayed me. I always love his wit and the slamming of the 1 percent. His use of fact and hyperbole highlights the truth; until “Cherry Bomb.” Oh man, Stephen...

Say No To Fluoride

Do you or your child’s teeth have white, yellow, orange, brown, stains, spots, streaks, cloudy splotches or pitting? If so, you may be among millions of Americans who now have a condition called dental fluorosis...

Questions Of Freedom

The administration’s “Affordable Health Care Act” has ordered religious orders to provide contraception and chemical abortions against the church’s God given beliefs and teachings … an interesting order, considering the First Amendment’s clear prohibitions...

Those of us who oppose the project are being labeled as uncompassionate citizens...

Best of Mackinac & Cheboygan

Best of NM 2012 serve as the corridor to the north. Surrounded by water, woods and chocked full of history, it’s the last stop before folks say ‘Ya’ to da U.P. But this region is more than a pit stop for visitors, it’s home to eclectic shops, cool hangouts, good food and plenty of spirits.

Taste Makers

Little Traverse Inn Gastro Pub

Dining Rick Coates Finding authentic “fish and chips” is not always an easy task as there are lots of “posers” out there.

The Rowe Inn

Dining Kristi Kates “There has been a long-standing myth that The Rowe is an old cottage,” Webb says, “but it has always been a restaurant, and the name comes from the Rowes. Wes Westhoven bought the building in 1972, and brought the idea of ‘farm to table’ to Northern Michigan at that time.

Tasteful
