Historically Wrong In regard to Mary Keyes Rogers’ column about the downtown charter amendment, neither Samuel Adams nor Thomas Jefferson were at the Constitutional Convention...
The Film Possibilities I was surprised that none of the Traverse City Film Festival films addressed the most pressing and dangerous issue of the day: radical Islamic Jihad. Perhaps a storyline could have illustrated how the West brought this on themselves, or if we could only find jobs for those fellows! Perhaps put it down to global warming...
Helmets Save Lives The facts are in. Wearing a helmet is the most effective tool to save your brain in a motorcycle accident. The bonus? Helmets also save hearts. Nearly two yrs ago, on Aug. 26, 2014 our son lived...

Thanks to the uninformed, fear-mongering liberal media, this new and threatening process called fracking is the latest and greatest threat to our environment. News flash, fracking has been around for DECADES. Feel free to consult U-M or MSU professors of geology or petroleum engineering to confirm.
Procuring energy in any of its many forms can pose some environmental threats. For example, the thousands of birds, many of which are endangered species, killed by the giant windmills that generate electricity.

rather than bemoaning problems!

Tuttle wrote (“Voters in the Dark”, 3/24) As I watched the
advertisements on TV, I was appalled to read the sponsors for them...
We are all human and deserving of being treated with dignity. The
labelling of people is undignified, and frought with the danger of
causing divisions and controversy...
Tax Reform Wanted
“Tax reform,” “less taxes,” blah blah blah…the historical plea of every would-be re-elected congressman since time immemorial. Dave Camp is looking to begin his second quarter century in Congress using that same card from that same old deck...Teach Healthy Sexuality
children and teens of today are our hope for tomorrow. It’s important
for us as parents, caring adults and community members to help set young
people on the path for a healthy future and support them as they work
to create positive change...
Spring Of 2014
of 2014 has sprung The Republican Tea Party cycle has begun For their
goal is only one That your life remains on the bottom rung. In
non-election years they ignore their constituents By covering their ears
For they have no fears in those years...
