History Lesson  “The days of cheap oil and easy acquisition are over. “ -- President Obama, June 2010

A Study In Mudslinging In the January 12 issue of Northern Express, Grant Parsons wrote a piece that touched on behind-the-scenes campaign financing. Mr. Parsons referenced attack ads he received in the mail prior to the November elections.

Sad Story I read with sadness in the Detroit Free Press of 24-year-old Angela Marie Alexie, who abandoned her just born baby boy in an unheated Eastpoint, Michigan garage to die alone in the cold, and who had also previously lost 3 children to foster care, the youngest of which, a girl, suffered withdrawal symptoms because of Alexie’s drug use during pregnancy.

Balance On The Page Having looked through the Northern Express for years, I have finally found something worth reading besides News of the Weird and the Advice Goddess!

An Eye On Congress The U.S. Senate on January 21 voted 98 for and 1 against to adopt a non-binding resolution stating, “It is the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax.”

Applauding Boyne City: A wonderful thing happened in Boyne City. As of May 13, citizens are drinking clean water again. It feels great taking a good long drink knowing it can’t hurt you or anyone; not children, family, friends or animals, because water fluoridation has been stopped.

The Real Fluoride Story: According to a survey commissioned by the Michigan Oral Health Coalition, 60 percent of Traverse City residents support water fluoridation.

Snyder, Franz & School Cuts: Like many grandparents, I was delighted to share first day of school grandchild photos with my friends. It was a week of new beginnings for the younger generation, and pride and fond remembrances for mine. Now that school is underway, I am outraged at Governor Rick Snyder and Representative Ray Franz for the continued repercussions that ripple through our school systems due to reduced funding from Lansing.

No Longer A Split Ticket: In the past, I have never voted a straight party ticket. I try to find out about a candidate’s beliefs and personality such as his honesty, intelligence, lifestyle, education, and experience. Then I vote for the person, not a party.
