Truths And Minorities While I appreciate Stephen Tuttle’s mention of the Colin Kaepernick situation, I was disappointed he wrote only of his right not to stand for the national anthem but not his reason for doing so. Personally, I commend Mr. Kaepernick for his courageous attempt to bring issues of concern to the forefront. As a white male baby boomer, I sadly realize I am in a minority among my peers...

“Yes” Means Your Rights It has been brought to my attention that some people in Traverse City are being asked to put “no” on Proposal 3 signs in their yards, and are falsely being told this means they do not want tall buildings downtown.

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.

There is little evidence to support that fracking is some kind of environmental threat waiting to happen. I don’t glow in the dark, my son is perfectly normal, my water doesn’t spontaneously combust...

Petoskey Restaurant Week

Dining Kristi Kates Restaurant weeks are de rigueur in big cities, and since northern Michigan is becoming a food mecca, with an diverse assortment of dining destinations for every budget and palate, what better way to show off one of its city’s cafes, grills, fine dining establishments and sandwich stops than with a restaurant week of its own?.

Restaurant Week: a Boon for Patrons, Eateries

Features Ross Boissoneau As Traverse City readies for its sixth Restaurant Week, it’s hard to determine the winner: patrons who can experience the best a restaurant has to offer with a $25 three-course meal or the restaurants themselves, which see some of the biggest crowds of the off season.
