Re: Gretcholm wants to raise fuel taxes by 45 cents/gallon by 2020

The thing is that our roads are literally so bad from years of neglect. I am a bit weary that the appropriate amount of money can be raised w/o some sort of gas tax, even if it's much lower than the asked for .45 cents. It's going to have to be a combination of things. And let's stop the roundabout ...

Re: Name The Beer

So delicious!!! Do the ones sold in Canada taste any different than those sold in the US? Labatt Blue... Brought four cans from home for those days that demand something with more authority than Busch Light. Yesterday was the first of those days. http://london.marknmel.com/albums/album02/100_0199.si...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

If anyone has serious health issues because of the time change, then I would submit that the root cause of said health issues is something far more serious than a one hour time shift. As many studies have suggested accidents and heart attack rates spike during the transition. That part is really no...

I would be curious to know what a similar analysis at the state level would reveal.
As would I!

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

I think the central time zone should move a little more east. Part of the UP is part of the central time zone. And the Detroit Tigers are in the AL Central Division...just sayin'!

Re: Classic Country In The North

WGDN is spotty in Roscommon itself but might be better more closer to Houghton Lake. Something covering the whole region would be ideal. 100.3 would have been a great choice to do this. Back when they were country I listened to that way more than WTCM.

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

My problem isn't setting the clocks and whatnot. Its the fact that this practice is still happening. It's just a tired and old relic from the wars that really don't have a place in modern society. It just no longer makes sense. Studies have even shown that there are many negative health effects.

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

I look at it from this perspective: There are 24 hours in a day. Regardless if its dark or light I can still do things I want regardless what the clock says. From personal experience and this is no joke, springing forward really messes me up for a couple of weeks...just dragging ass. If I happen to ...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

It's an old and outdated practice that is no longer relevant in today's society. Studies have shown time changes increase the risks of heart attacks and accidents. Also it's not good for your circadian rhythm. Just pick a time and stick with it...enough of this changing the clock nonsense. Why not c...
