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...

Wood-fired Pizza on the Rise at Full Moon

Dining Ross Boissoneau Don’t turn your back. That’s the advice from Mark Nelson. But he’s not talking about a shifty-eyed passer-by. No, he’s referring to the behemoth wood-fired oven that takes up a large portion of the space inside Full Moon Pizza Company, the restaurant he and Nathan Knickerbocker own and run.

Call of the Mild

Dining Ross Boissoneau THE SCENE The Conklins wanted to be in Northern Michigan, which would have seasons similar to what they’d experienced in Alaska. They sold 21 of their 27 sled dogs and bought a home in Harbor Springs, planning their restaurant even before finding a location.

Grille 44 continues to grow

Dining Ross Boissoneau When Kevin Buckner bought Grille 44 in Bear Lake, it was a summer-only cafe called the Ice Shanty. Last year, its transformation was complete, as the eatery became a year-round restaurant serving Bear Lake and the surrounding area with a full menu, including alcohol.

Bigger is Better at Full Moon

Dining Ross Boissoneau For Mark Nelson, the jump from small pizzeria to full size restaurant — complete with bar — wasn’t an easy one.

Chef Charles

Dining Janice Binkert With the culinary experience chef Charles Egeler acquired by the age of 40 — studying at the Culinary Institute of America, apprenticing in a Jewish bakery, being mentored by a former White House chef, holding high positions in both gourmet eateries...

The Alanson Depot

Dining Kristi Kates One hundred and thirty-five years ago, it was a train depot primarily used by the logging industry. In the years to follow, it would become a train-themed tourist attraction, an antique shop, a snowmobile dealership, a pizza place and a popular dining destination known as Lester’s BBQ.

Short's Brewery Rolls in the Dough

Dining Kristi Kates Pizza is everywhere in northern Michigan and across America. So it’s a challenge for any restaurant, pub, or pizza place to make their pie standout. Popular local microbrew destination Short’s Brewing Company found a way, and all it took was looking in their own proverbial backyard.
