Letters to the Editor

To the editor: Joe Bippus is a liability the city and has cost us $200,000 in a previous lawsuit, now he is risking millions of tax payer dollars on a sports complex that the city has not won the right to build yet. Can we really afford that risk? With tax shares from the state down, where do you...
To the Editor: This month, a 911 millage request was on the ballot.  The county clerk reported that only 6.2 percent of the registered voters of St. Joseph County took the time to vote.  Of that total, 1,364 voted yes and 1,323 voted no.  A small difference of 41 votes.  Any person who believes...

To the editor: I am writing in regard to what I feel is some hanky panky going on in city government. A close friend of mine decided to run for commissioner. I signed the paper she collected signatures on. She took it in to the city clerk over two weeks ahead of time and said if there is a problem...
To the editor: I was present at this meeting. However, after reading the Three Rivers Commercial article I wondered if I had been at the same meeting. The information seemed to be correct, but there was a lot of information not included that resulted in completely changing ay perceptions or...
To the editor: “Thank you, President Obama — eight scandal free years” and “Thank you, President Obama — dignified leader.” These are the two sides of my signs placed on my property on M-86 in Nottawa on January 19, 2017, the day before the inauguration.
