To the editor: Many of our presidents have used our armed forces as pawns in their efforts to increase their popularity. If their approval rating started to slip they manufactured a reason to send our young men into harm’s way. Since the end of WWII there have not been any military actions...
To the editor: Across the country there has been vicious damage being done to historical landmarks and monuments. I feel like this is uncalled for. Right now there are many cities in uproar as to being sanctuary cities for immigrants. Why not make a sanctuary city for land monuments? Not that I...
I have received encouragement for this column almost daily from readers like yourselves. Many people have been following what is happening in downtown Three Rivers, and want to believe in a positive change. The revitalization work we are doing is important, and I believe someday soon, its results...
To the editor: The Republicans are negotiating. They have proposed a health care bill that is about as bad as you can get. When the bill is not accepted they will add a few benefits and it will get a few more votes. They will continue this until a bill is passed that is not good but is acceptable...
To the editor: “To serve and not be served.” Figure of speech or meaningful words of LCMS and other churches? Well, to some people they have meaning, but to the church member they may be a joke at best. As a member, try to get the leadership to answer a simple letter or a telephone call....

Everyone has his or her share of problems. Sometimes the problems are small and easily solved. Other times they are beyond imagination. We’ve all had problems so difficult that we’d wish we would wake up and discover that it was all just a bad dream. I remember listening to a speaker whose topic...
To the editor: There are unexpected moments in a person’s life, and I had such a moment when I attended a dinner party where Father Theodore Hesburgh entered the room! We chatted, and when he discovered I was a Spanish teacher he started telling me in Spanish about all of his travels and missions...
To the editor: I wonder if anyone is keeping track of how much money is being wasted and time lost to build the new sports complex. Has anyone been to Schoolcraft’s complex? It is two miles out of town. Personally I think a nice place for the complex would be north of Meijer.Marlen Hetmansperger...
