Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: I receive the Commercial in hard copy and read it daily as I have for several years. I enjoy the local coverage and especially the sports coverage by Scott Hassinger. I don’t think that I have ever written a letter to a newspaper editor, but many of the references in the Commercial...
To the editor: What we don’t know might hurt us. Consider the plight of successful dairy farmer, Art Schaap, from New Mexico. For years he watered his crops and livestock from deep wells on his property. He never realized that the fire retardant chemicals used by the neighboring air force base were...
To the editor: Thank you to everyone who gave to the 2018 Meijer Simply Give Program. The Three Rivers Food site had an average of 300 families come to the Food Site each month, which was 1,014 individuals. 37% were children, 51% adults and 12% were senior citizens. Thanks to the individuals,...
To the editor: Many of our footprints will remain in the hallways of Sturgis Hospital. The many years the employees dedicated their lives to work there. I for one worked during the “golden years” when you were recognized for works and deeds that you did especially if it was above average...
To the editor: I did some hiking in the mountains of North Carolina this summer. One day I climbed an access road about a quarter of a mile from the main road.  It opened into an area of several hundred acres that had been clear cut. All that was left were small trees that had been cut or uprooted...
To the editor: We urge all voters in St Joseph County to vote for John James for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Nov. 6. We need a combat veteran like John James in the Senate. There are way too few veterans in Congress these days. We need someone of John James’ caliber and generation to represent and...
Letter to the editor: By attempting to viciously and deceptively smear the credibility of his opponent Matt Longjohn’s MD degree and extensive career in healthcare, Congressman Fred Upton, of Michigan’s 6th District, has disgraced himself. Upton is running hideous, in-the-gutter, dark money ads...
To the editor: As a person of faith, I can no longer remain silent in this toxic political environment. We vote on Tuesday and all who are able should exercise that right. If you are a person of Christian faith, you have a doubly hard job because there is no equivocating when it comes to this...
To the editor: Two themes appearing in a lot of ads in recent weeks are 1. Funding for education and 2. Compassion and women’s health-funding. There is a connection. In Michigan, funding for the K-12 years is based upon the annual classroom “count.” Aty dollars per head, the amount for schools is...
To the editor: I want to express my support of the Honorable Congressman Fred Upton. Fred has represented me for a long time. In an era of discontentment with our leaders, longevity can be a good thing. I have known him in a variety of different ways and have appreciated his service. I am a Merit...
