Letters to the Editor

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...
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. This has allowed me experience first-hand how our community college affects the lives of our citizens and businesses. I’ve witnessed their graduations...
To the editor, I am writing this letter in support of the Glen Oaks Community College’s request for a half a mill, which is on the Nov. 6 ballot. The structure is 50-years-old and has been maintained as well as an aging facility could be. It is in dire need of new windows and insulation to save...
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...
