3. Not rich.
The median income for a household in the village was $32,243, and the median income for a family was $44,625. Males had a median income of $31,950 versus $20,893 for females. The per capita income for the village was $18,327. About 3.0% of families and 5.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 4.3% of those under age 18 and 2.9% of those age 65 or over.

4. Nope. Just an average community that happens to be in a beautiful setting....
..... Traverse City is where the wealthy tend to congregate in that part of the state.

5. Join Michael Moore...
Thanx for posting this, I'll have to wait for the movie to
come to my area. Moore is to me a true patriot, loved his
9-11 and his 'The Big One', but I greatly disliked the Roger
and Me movie because he showed a rabbit being killed without
any warning. I don't like being ambushed, having seen my
share of violent death. Also I'm one of those tree-hugging
animal-rights kinda folks.

Again, thanx! I'm new here, hoping to find some friends from
the old Alternet / New Cafe forums. And new friends.

Oh, and I write stories where animals win. Pretty crazy, eh?
EHHH?
