To the editor: In response to the political cartoon, which appeared on the editorial page of the Commercial-News on Saturday, April 7 depicting two African-Americans discussing the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, I wish to make these comments. I quite much enjoyed...
To the editor: I’m a resident in the White Pigeon School district. The comment the third district county commissioner made that “paying more milage can help public safety,” — Really? Last week there were five wrecks involving people trying to get to work traveling on Lutz Rd., hitting black ice....
To the editor: I have a medical marijuana card.  The idea that the city commission would rather have me or others in the same situation seek “parking lot” dealers rather than a controlled environment says much about your limited understanding of this issue. My understanding is that you were...
