    Traverse City, MI will always hold a special place in my heart. Upon leaving the stage after performing at a tea party rally, a white woman in a wheelchair saw me approaching. She yelled, “Oh my gosh, it's Lloyd Marcus! May I have a picture with you?” I leaned over, gave the woman a hug and her daughter snapped a picture. Donald, our product manager said the woman's daughter told him that her mother is terminally ill. Her mom said all she wanted to do was meet Lloyd Marcus before she died. Folks, I can not begin to tell you...

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Police questioned a passenger on a small commercial plane that flew from Chicago to a northern Michigan resort town on Friday after the crew reported he was acting suspiciously. Crew members aboard United Airlines Flight 6036 said the 28-year-old California man had taken "an article" into the bathroom and left without it, said Traverse City Police Capt. Steve Morgan. The crew found that a panel inside the bathroom had been tampered with, he said. They requested law enforcement assistance while approaching Cherry Capital Airport, Morgan said. A government official said earlier the passenger had made a...

    An archaeologist says it remains a mystery how a circle of stones initially arrived at the floor of Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. Underwater archeologist Mark Holley said while he first discovered the underwater stones in 2007, no one has been able to prove whether the rocks were placed there by nature or by mankind, the Chicago Tribune reported Sunday. "The first thing I said when I came out of the water was, 'Oh no, I wish we wouldn't have found this,'" Holley said of his discovery. "This is going to invite so much controversy that this is where we're going...

    Gnawing leisurely on the remains of a moose carcass, the wolf pack's alpha male seemed unaware that mortal danger was coming ever closer. Suddenly the eight-member rival pack burst into view. The alpha scrambled to his feet, but too late. Howling and barking, the enemy chased him down and mercilessly attacked, killing the hapless victim within a couple of minutes. It's not unusual for the gray wolves on Isle Royale National Park to target each other, said John Vucetich, a Michigan Tech University wildlife biologist who witnessed the carnage from an airplane in January. But the rival pack's brazen invasion...

    TRAVERSE CITY - Few area residents had ever heard of the Texas-based American Film Renaissance or Cheryl Felicia Rhoads before founder Genie Aldrich announced the Traverse Bay Freedom FilmFest that opens Friday. Aldrich calls her FilmFest a conservative alternative to the larger Traverse City Film Festival, which opens Wednesday. That festival is the baby of Michael Moore - an Oscar-winning liberal filmmaker whose name is decidedly well known nationally, inspiring both admiration and acrimony. Aldrich spearheaded what early announcements dubbed a "counter festival ... in response to Michael Moore" after appearing at a June 6 Traverse City Commission meeting.

    Ticket ripped because of sticker Teacher, 55, wanted to see a president BY IAN C. STOREY Record-Eagle staff writer TRAVERSE CITY - Kathryn Mead wanted to see her first sitting president when George W. Bush visited the city.       Instead, Bush campaign staffers tore up the 55-year-old social studies teacher's ticket and refused her admission because she sported a small sticker on her blouse that touted the Democratic ticket of John Kerry and John Edwards.       "I had my ticket and photo identification, but they would not let me in because of this sticker," said...

"It's a beautiful part of our country. Good to be here in Cherry Country. And it really looks like Bush-Cheney country, too," he said with a broad grin. Deeply tanned and wearing a blue open-collar shirt, Bush's visit was the first to Traverse City by a sitting president since Gerald Ford paid a weekend...

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — President Bush is detouring again from the well-traveled campaign trail of southern Michigan to seek votes in a small town up north. Bush was to speak Monday afternoon in Traverse City, which last drew a presidential visit in 1975, when Gerald Ford rode in the National Cherry Festival parade. The outdoor rally at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center comes barely a month after Bush campaigned in the Upper Peninsula city of Marquette, where no sitting president had appeared since William Howard Taft nearly a century earlier. "Every single vote counts and we're going to...

    TRAVERSE CITY -- Ralph Bergsma pulled out a postcard from years ago, an aerial picture of his sandy shoreline along Grand Traverse Bay. Not a blade of grass in sight. "They used to call it the 'Miracle Mile'," said Bergsma, the owner of the Waterfront Inn on U.S. 31. Fast-forward to 2004: He said hotel guests use a bridge to walk over beach vegetation to play in the bay. Years of low water levels on the Great Lakes have allowed weeds and other plants to emerge on the resort's 800 feet of shore. With the summer season knocking again, the...

    Pro-lifers barred from parade 'Issues' deemed not appropriate for community event After seven years of participation, pro-life students were barred from a community parade in Michigan because "issues" were considered inappropriate for such an event. The group didn't fit the theme of "cherries, children and fun," insisted a committee of volunteers who reviewed applications for the National Cherry Festival's Junior Royale Parade in Traverse City, the local Record-Eagle said. That came as a surprise to Andrea Becker of Students for Life. "I was disgusted really," she said, according to the daily. "We purposefully try to not put the word 'abortion'...
