Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

A Double Vision of Classic Rock

Styx & Foreigner at Cherry Festival

Features Rick Coates “I think there are several factors. Certainly our songbook is strong and continues to resonate with our fans and now a whole new generation of fans,” Youn said. “Our songs are being used by professional sports teams and in the movies, guys like Adam Sandler are huge fans and use our music in their movies.

Sleeping Bear Farms is Sweet on Mead

Dining Danielle Horvath “I can’t think of another winery in the state that is like us,” Jones said. “We have our own press to squeeze fresh juice from local grapes, pears and cherries for our honey and fruit meads. We combine Northern Michigan’s excellent wine grapes with different varieties of honey made from our bees.

Martinis and Blues at Interlochen

Music Kristi Kates “There’s a trend?” joked Pink Martini’s percussionist, Brian Davis. “I occasionally miss those, but if there are groups surfacing inspired or influenced by what Pink Martini’s doing, how cool is that?” According to Davis, Lauderdale comes up with the...

Sleeping Bear Farm: A Year in Beekeeping

Features Kristi Kates Today, Kirk Jones is the owner of Sleeping Bear Farms honey operation in Beulah, where he presides over hundreds of hives, the bees that live in them and the products they make together, but his story really begins back on the bayou.

Trusting His Instincts

Features Kristi Kates “Music was really my only friend as a kid,” Jones explained. “So here I was, living in this small town and listening to the music everyone else was listening to at the time. Then I started reading Thrasher (a skateboarding/music magazine) in sixth grade and found out about bands like Sonic Youth and The Dead Milkmen.
