Cooking class with Folgarelli's

Posted on March 21, 2010 at 9:28am 0 Comments

If you've ever thought that a local, one evening cooking class would be "too academic" for your taste(buds), let me remind you that a single cooking class is usually a fun, experiential way to broaden your skills and enjoy a deliciously, lovely meal with a group of like minded foodavores.

I was looking forward to learning more about Chef Ron's (Folgarelli's Market) interpretation of Spanish Tapas, since he does such a marvelously good job with fresh pizza dough and tortellini's (oh no, my… Continue

Locavore finds LocaBeer!

Posted on March 21, 2010 at 9:24am 0 Comments

That crazy pumpkin head stops me in my tracks every time! It's as though that dark night creature is some kind of sorcerer. The big carved head seduces me to swallow his golden-amber potion. (!) And I am transformed. This beer, this brew is sour and delicious, bitter and hoppy, new and unusual and transports me back to the cobblestone streets of Europe, when rowdy bloats scrambled arm in arm in the wee hours, struggling to remain upright on the slow and painfree journey home after a night of… Continue

Too Small or Badly Bruised apples needed!

Posted on October 9, 2008 at 3:34pm 2 Comments

Do you happen to have lots of badly bruised or slightly spoiled apples laying on the ground in your backyard that heaven forbid, you just don't know what to do with? Are they getting thrashed by your lawn mower or melding into your yard making inconvenient obstacles? Are your kids throwing them at each other? or against the house? Well, I know lots of furry large mammals that would love to wrap their teeth around your not so useful apples. Horse North Rescue is in need (actually, desire) of… Continue

Hi Beryl , I’m the Internal Communication Director for the Michigan FairTax Assn. As you’re aware, our state legislature has recently enacted the Michigan Business Tax [MBT] as a response to ending the Single Business Tax [SBT] (a gross receipts tax). Our goal is to inform Michiganders about a proposed Michigan FairTax alternative that would both simplify, and stimulate, Michigan's business / jobs climate in order to stem the mass-emigration of businesses and families currently taking place.

The proposed Michigan FairTax would REPLACE the income tax and current sales tax, with a consumption tax (sales tax at point of retail sale). Under this plan, no more state tax will be withheld from Michigan wage-earners' paychecks. What's more, every Michigan resident-family will receive a monthly "prebate" check, in amount based on family size. This will ensure that NO Michigan family will EVEN BEGIN paying the MI FairTax on goods / services unless, or until, they exceed poverty-level spending.

Under the MI FairTax plan, points of collection are substantially reduced to just retailers, many of whom are already collecting sales tax. Because service providers must account for income tax withholding and compliance costs, their prices carry a hidden tax which a FairTax will make visible. (Business-to-business purchases would not carry the tax, as this would, again, hide the cost of taxation in prices.)

Because of the "prebate" (advance rebate calculated as .0975 x $ [poverty level spending per family size]) to ALL Michigan-resident households, the MI FairTax rate would effectively be 0% on all monthly family spending to the poverty level; thereafter it's 9.75%. A reasonably inferred average effective rate would be ~5.5% (see p.2 of pdf brochure, also review an economic analysis [pdf] on MI FairTax effects prepared by the Hillsdale Policy Group).

Please, join our email list to be kept informed!

Why the FairTax idea is right for America's working families.

Dr. Laurence Kotlikoff believes that it will take the FairTax to reverse unfunded obligations, now above $53 trillion and counting!
