Frank Witsil Detroit Free Press Published 2:11 PM EDT Apr 29, 2019 Onekama is on the west side of Michigan, about 10 miles north of Manistee and the southern gateway to Michigan's scenic highway, M-22. Onekama (pronounced by locals as One-comma and O-NECK-a-ma) is known as an outdoor summer paradise for recreational activities, including camping, fishing, hiking, biking and golf.

By Mary Papenfuss The Democratic House majority swept into power on Thursday with a powerful infusion of women and people of color. The Republicans, not so much. GOP strategist Stuart Stevens slammed the “optics” of his party’s representatives on Friday, saying they looked like members of a corporate board from the 1950s — i.e., a bunch of white guys.
