To the editor: When it comes to senior fitness, our county is trying to establish more opportunities for those over the age of 60 to get fit. The current St. Joseph County Commission on Aging staff has been working to establish evidence-based and other exercise classes for all activity levels. So...
To the editor: I read that Fred Upton wouldn’t say he supported Trumpcare. But Fred was on the committee that wrote the bill. When I called to ask Fred to vote no on the bill, his staffer said she didn’t know how he would vote, but “of course he wanted to repeal and replace Obamacare.” And I saw...
To the editor: Over 50 years ago, our nation came together and our legislators from both sides of the aisle saw the need in this country and responded, passing the Food Stamp Act of 1964. Since that time, we have seen our country and our local communities go through many changes. We have been...
To the editor: I would venture to say the ones who oppose the new sports complex do not have grandchildren or have never been to a soccer game and seen the smiles on the kids’ faces. Most of these kids come off the field with smiles win or lose from about 5 years old on up. When tournament times...
Spring officially arrived a week ago yesterday, March 20. When it will feel like spring, remains to be seen. One day we are able to wear lighter clothing, then the next day we find ourselves scraping the frost off our car windows. I guess Mother Nature is having difficulty making up her mind, so we...

To the editor: Congratulations to our two inductees for the Three Rivers Hall of Fame. Sally Fetch-Lovejoy was also on the track team in the early 1970s. I was the coach back then and we had some outstanding athletes. Sally specialized in the 440 and 220 meters plus running a leg in the 880 relay...
To the editor: Three Rivers does not need a multi-million dollar sports arena. We have many other things that need to be done. Sports and physical education need to be supported by the schools, businesses and volunteers. Many of the problems created by the arena plans can be solved by a different...
We are all critics in some way, and there are some people who get paid for their critical expertise. We have restaurant and movie critics, to name just two, but I have never heard of a “Restroom Critic.” Now this would be something I might be successful in pursuing. I’m pretty sure this newspaper...
To the editor: I am a Democrat living in Cass County and my granddaughter is a Republican who works in the House of Representatives. We often talk about politics and she even bought me a copy of Bernie Sanders' new book "Our Revolution" for Christmas. She inscribed the book saying that though we...
