Article didn’t show all of Escanaba

June 26, 2013
Daily Press

A story in Tuesday's Detroit News about Escanaba and our upcoming sesquicentennial celebration left us a bit perplexed. We wonder if the author was actually in Escanaba or some other town by the same name. Titled "Town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula celebrates birthday, harkens back to better times," it paints a picture of Escanaba being a dreary little town crippled by high unemployment, closed businesses, disgruntled residents and a general lack of any opportunity or a future. The article suggests, citing Escanaba's sesquicentennial celebration, that Escanaba is a place where residents would rather live in the past than face the town's dark future.
