Letters to the Editor

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...
To the editor: I am writing to reach out to readers to join me in not only encouraging newly-aged voters to learn more about the various politicians running for this election but also to use their voice to make a change about things they feel passionate about.
To the editor: I grew up watching (SET ITALICS) Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood (END ITALICS) on PBS. Through his TV show and his advocacy, Fred Rogers advocated for what he called a “neighborhood expression of care.” This November, I will be voting for candidates who care for the least of these in our...
To the editor, As I consider how to vote on Nov. 6, I keep thinking of a statement from Father Greg Boyle, a Catholic priest who works on building community and job skills with former gang members in L.A. He says, “Here is what we seek: a compassion that can stand in awe at what the poor have to...
To the editor: Glen Oaks is an important asset to our county. I have had the opportunity to work there both as an instructor and an administrator.

To the editor: Positivity! When I vote for a candidate I look for positivity in the policies they support. Like Judy Nelson for Commissioner — she will be a watchdog on spending and will bring a much-needed expanded view to County Government. How about Dennis Smith for State Rep - education would...
To the editor, I urge citizens of the 4th District to vote for Elizabeth O’Dell for County Commissioner. While I do not live in St. Joseph County now, I did for over 20 years. I have had the privilege of knowing Liz personally and working with her through Sturgis Youth & Family and Sturgis...
To the editor: The Three Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors would like to encourage St. Joseph County voters to support the St. Joseph County Commission on Aging Operating Millage that will appear on the Nov. 6, 2018 ballot. The COA provides important services to our seniors. ...
To the Editor: I recently had the good fortune of hearing authors James and Deborah Fallows discuss their national bestselling book, “Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into The Heart of America”. Over the course of the past five years, the Fallows have traveled across America in a single-engine...
