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...

Lamontagne and Lewis Take Road Less Traveled

Music Kristi Kates LaMontagne, one of six kids, spent much of his childhood drawing role playing game characters instead of doing his schoolwork; Lewis grew up with a mother who was a professional singer, and a father who was in Johnny Puleo’s mid-50s “Harmonica Gang” band.

The Benzie Area Symphony Orchestra Presents

Benzie Central High School Auditorium

The Benzie Area Symphony Orchestra is in its 35th year of bringing great musical works to our community orchestra and to its diverse audience.  None of the members of the orchestra are paid and its the passion for the music that is evident from every musician in the "BASO" that allows the creation of musical moments.

Come on August 23rd to the Benzie Central High School Auditorium at 9300 Homestead Road, Benzonia, MI 49616 at 7:00 p.m. to experience our theme for the evening, "Music Inspired by Art."

The musicians will be under the capable baton of S. Annette Jurcevic.  Ms. Jurcevic is a resident of Ludington, MI and also is the founder of the "Shoreline
Symphony" of Muskegon, MI.   Ms. Jurcevic is auditioning along with two other candidates to be the "BASO" conductor and musical advisor.  Under Ms. Jurcevic's direction, you will hear works by Johann Strauss II, Massanet, Rachmaninoff, Mussorgsky, Livingston, and Anderson.  Along with the musical exposure you will experience an added bonus of an audiovisual intimacy with the harmonies of the music.

Theresa A. Kelley, Operations Manager of the "BASO."
