Autumn is Here ... Wish You Were
This is one of the best times of the year to enjoy a beautiful romantic getaway in NW Michigan. The views of Lake Michigan are spectacular. After a brisk day in the great outdoors kick back and enjoy a soak in a bubbly hot tub. Then settle down in front of a toasty fire sipping a glass of our wonderful regional wine and savor our fantastic locally made breads and cheeses.

Federal Bicycle legislation passed to help encourage people to bike to work
After seven long years, the bicycle commuter tax provision has finally passed both the House and Senate. President Bush has said that he is eager to sign the legislation. “We are delighted that the bicycle commuter benefits act has passed after a lengthy and persistent campaign spearheaded by Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR),” said League President Andy Clarke. “Bicycle commuters will now be extended similar benefits to people who take transit and drive to work – it’s an equitable and sensible incentive to encourage greater energy independence, improve air quality and health, and even help tackle climate change. Keep checking back at www.bikeleague.org as we work on the implementation process.

Retailer Bans Some Plastic Bottles
A line of water bottles that had become a symbol of environmental responsibility has been removed from the shelves of Canada’s leading outdoor gear retailer over concerns about a chemical used in its manufacture. Skip to next paragraph Polycarbonate plastic bottles are transparent and almost as hard as glass. The Mountain Equipment Co-op, which is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, removed the bottles, sold under the brand name Nalgene, and other polycarbonate containers from its 11 large-scale stores on Wednesday. The retailer said that it would not restock the bottles, which are made by Nalge Nunc International in Rochester, a unit of Thermo Fisher Scientific, until Health Canada completed a review of bisphenol-a, or B.P.A., a chemical used to make hard, transparent plastics as well as liners for food cans.

Urgent: To Do Now
Nature's Way Chimney Sweeps to Your Rescue
The Consumer Product Safety Commission tells us that over 45,000 chimney fires occur each year. These fires are often a result of poor maintenance and inadequate cleaning of the chimney. Each year families in northern Michigan lose their homes, condos, cottages, and cabins to defective and dirty chimneys. If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, you have a dirty chimney!
