Time For Hartman/Hammond  Long term planning would have coincided the timing of downing the Cass St/Keystone Bridge in TC and the construction of a Hartman/ Hammond Bridge. Such a planned roadway would have met everyone’s needs.

No more Apologies In view of the senseless, brutal murder of an unarmed black man in South Carolina last week by a police officer following a traffic stop for a broken taillight, we must revisit Thomas Kachadurian’s recent column.

What Is Your Experience To Lead? I listened to Marco Rubio’s announcement of his running for the presidency. Many have admired his speech. He said a lot of the right things

Outsourcing NMC Faculty  “Outsourcing” the vast majority of NMC faculty? Do I hear the sound of NMC’s reputation sucked down the drain to save money? Really?

Build A Better Cherry Fest

I strongly disagree with Mr. Tuttle’s piece insisting that we keep National Cherry Festival exactly as it remains. Many residents, including myself, are not in favor of eliminating the festival, but rather asking some very poignant questions...

A Real Farmers Market

Congrats on the Wet House

How wonderful to see that there are people who are intelligent, compassionate and actively doing something to help those with addictions and mental differences which are viewed with critical disapproval by many. Mental challenges and addictions to drugs and alcohol are not unique to homeless men, these things affect both men and women and people from all income levels...

The Ripple Effect of the Mario Batali Tweet

Dining With Dogs

Dining Jodee Taylor In Michigan, it’s actually illegal to have animals in areas where food is served, including outdoor dining areas. However, state and federal food codes prohibiting animals in these areas refer to full-service dining situations. If food is prepared indoors and carried outside by the patron himself, no laws are being broken.

Drawbridge Bistro: A New Stafford’s Landmark

Dining Ross Boissoneau

When the Charlevoix drawbridge is up, traffic sits stopped in both directions. For drivers just trying to get through town, it’s a pain to be endured. For diners at the Drawbridge Bistro, though, it’s just another part of the attraction.

Pearl’s, Queen of Creole

Dining Ross Boissoneau THE SCENE Though wildly successful today, Pearl’s was far from a sure thing. As the restaurant’s website says, “We can still recall the sincere concern of all those who went out of their way at the time to ask us, ‘What are you, nuts?’” Moore...

Nutrition Is Key Weapon in Battling Cancer

Dining Ross Boissoneau When it comes to the best foods to help you avoid cancer, it’s no surprise that the list includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains. The list is similar for people who already have cancer, but with one important consideration. Sometimes people need to eat anything that’s appealing and doesn’t make them sick.

Food Isn’t What It Was In regards to your article on nutrition being a key weapon for battling cancer, the problem is that much of our food has little nutritional value.

The Real Muslim Issues At least [Express columnist] Tom Kachadurian is being honest when he confesses a long-held family resentment towards Muslims

Applauding Opinions Kudos to the Northern Express for inviting guest editors to write columns. I have enjoyed the timely columns of Scott Hardy particularly

Party For The People One political party opposes minimum wage increases, pushes “right to work” legislation state-to-state, and finds it their mission to eliminate labor unions and the benefits they bring to everyday workers
