Worry About Legals
can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere
in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby
case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they
felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the
“Affordable” Care Act...
Stop Labeling and Enjoy
have been struggling to find a simple way of understanding for myself
the concepts of conservative, liberal, and moderation as it relates to
our social interactions with each other...
Proposal One & The Public Good
Are you kidding me? Another corporate giveaway with loopholes for large corporations who rule us? Hasn’t our corrupt and worthless governor done enough to raise taxes, provide corporate welfare, unjustly tax pensions, and shut down elected officials with his emergency manager racket...The Truth About Road Workers
Apparently Mr. Kachadurian did not catch on to the fact that the MDOT Employee Memorial in Clare is a tribute to highway workers who lost their lives building our transportation systems. It was paid for by current and former MDOT employees who likely knew some of these people personally...Idiotic and Misguided
As a seasonal resident, I always look forward to reading your paper, if only because of the idiotic letters to the editor and off the wall columns...
We cannot stress enough that this graphic is satirical and in no way encourages the practice of grinding...
Rough roads & TC Michigan
residents appear to agree that Michigan roads are in poor shape and in
need of immediate improvement. What no-one can agree on is where we find
the dollars to complete the task. To begin with, we should stop
building new roads until we can maintain the roads we currently have...
Source of the sequester In his 2/25 column, Steve Tuttle offers a reasonably fair-minded look at this sequester’s history. However, he asserts that Congress came up with “a law under which budget cuts and tax increases will take place automatically absent a budget deal.”
The recent vitriol against bike riders is short-sighted at best and pathetic at worst. Talk of getting the police to ticket cyclists more and of licensing and insuring bicycles are solutions looking for a problem...Endless crowds
found Sam Porter’s marketing comments about his new “Spectacular
Structures” mobile venue being touted for our area perplexing. On
the one hand he comments about how we should celebrate all that is
great and good about life in Northern Michigan and laments those events
that can “close down our parks and streets.”
So many disagreeable comments appeared in your article about Fridrich Furs: Trapping... fur farms...Fridrich seems to be comfortable rationalizing the most despicable and inhumane treatment of animals to further his profession...Our poisoned roads
Once again Team Services has been caught using toxic waste chemicals from oil and gas drilling as dust control on roads. Team Services reportedly sprayed 300,000 gallons of toxic fluid on 121 miles of roads in Benzie County...Christians & science
The incessant and unnecessary conflict between science and religion continues, but we can and should learn from history. Beginning in 1534 when Copernicus published “On the Revolution of Heavenly Bodies,” until at least 1633 with church decrees against Galileo, a battle raged which bore striking similarities to the evolution versus creationism war of today...
