Letters to the Editor

To the editor: The recent tragic loss of yet another historic home in the Village of Constantine could give us an opportunity to turn this negative into a positive. The John S. Barry Society has done well to portray its namesake and the general history of the Village, but other notables have...
To the editor: Newborn babies are intriguing with their little wrinkles or lines on their faces. They enter this world of what’s ahead after leaving the comfort zone of their mother. Their skin is delicate and beautiful. As we age, the abuse of the daily exposure to the elements tell a tale on our...
To the editor: The Women’s March on Washington 2017 was a quite remarkable weekend and a gracious, purposeful march by women and men of all ages, ethnicities, interests, and concerns. We returned home yesterday afternoon. My daughter-in-law, Christie Ruesink, and her friend, Traci Phelps, did all...
To the editor: On Jan. 11, the home at 320 S. Washington in Constantine caught fire, a tragic occurrence for a family that lost everything, but also for the village. It was a historic home built in the early 1800’s by the Wells family. According to an 1877 History of St. Joseph County, the Wells...

Here are just a few facts that we can’t deny: •Women...
To the editor: When we know from experience the lethal consequences of oil spills in our lakes and waterways, how is it that our governing bodies ignore the threat of a pipeline that crosses the Mackinac strait? We should consider the groups that have a vested interest in the continuing flow of...
To the editor: The groups most likely to be negatively affected by climate change are those below the age of 40. They should be the spokespeople for any movement that discourages the use of fossil fuels. On Dec. 14 in Niles there was a public hearing for residents to voice their support or...
To the editor: At this time of the year it is easy to be caught up in the rush of the season without remembering or even thinking of the reason we go through all of this “hullabaloo.” So as a way of slowing us down and getting us to reflect, I share a seasonal poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti called...
To the editor: I have noticed something about our county, looking at all of the numbers that the county clerk put out about election day. A majority of voters out there voted Republican and my question is why? You are voting against your own interest! Our county ranks 55 out 83 for median...
