To the editor: As you were driving past the First United Methodist Church on North Main Street maybe you’ve seen the box on a post (I hope you weren’t texting!) The box is the “sharing box,” sponsored by the church. It is a part of a community project for the benefit of anyone who is in...
It was quite a show witnessed by the largest audience of citizens in awhile at this week’s St. Joseph County Commission meeting. It became clear to me that the manipulation of the times for citizens comments to assure a new member of the commission actually serves to limit citizen input,...
To the editor: If our cities were being attacked by foreign aggressors and innocent civilians were being killed, I believe the natural reaction would be retribution, revenge, or some other version of “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” I am afraid that this same reaction is happening...

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...
