Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

Johan's Expands Their Empire

Dining Kristi Kates Johan’s is a long-standing tradition in the Petoskey-Harbor Springs-Boyne area. Anyone who lives near one of their bakeries knows the scent of fresh-baked pastries and bread that begins early in the morning, tempting passers-by to stop in for breakfast, lunch, or just a treat.

An Olive With a Twist

Unassuming cafe by day; cozy high-end bistro by night.

Dining Ross Boissoneau Twisted Olive opened in May four years ago as a breakfast and lunchtime eatery. That changed a year and a half ago when a liquor license became available. Owner Kirsten Okeefe saw it as an opportunity to expand her business, and added dinner service..

Big Apple Flavor; Up North Vibe

For more than 100 years, the corner of State and Bay streets in Harbor Springs has been central to what’s happening downtown.

Dining Ross Boissoneau Fish entrées include whitefish, which is broiled, baked with pecan crust, or sautéed with capers. There is also scampi sautéed with tomato, spinach, kalamata olives and garlic, tossed with spinach egg linguini. New York’s Scottish salmon is served with a sauce of dried cherries and almonds and roasted vegetable couscous.
