Petoskey News-Review Columns

I am truly honored to be writing a weekly column in the Petoskey News-Review.  It appears each Wednesday and is intended to provide a “progressive” view on current issues.  I think a lot of local papers like the News-Review and I think as towns across our country lose them, a piece of our democracy dies.   I will post links to the columns here for those of you who are out of town.  (You locals should buy the darn paper!)
