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...
To the editor: I read the Feb. 17, 2017 Three Rivers Commercial article concerning Flowerfield Millage. Having worked in the taxing field for many years I would like to offer some guidance. An additional millage would give the unit extra money to spend where it sees fit, but it would be spread on...
To the editor: U.S. Rep Fred Upton had a tele-townhall on Tuesday, Feb. 28 and I was one of about 300 people listening in. During the call, Upton did surveys on a number of issues. It turns out most people on the call: 1. did not support a wall 2. wanted a law that would make all Presidents...

I can’t remember a February when the weather has been this pleasant, or perhaps I should say weird. We’ve had temperatures in the fifties and sixties, along with temperatures in the twenties and thirties. There have been times when we’ve had nicer weather than those Michiganders who have flown...
2017 has begun with the first step in several gradual increments of the newest gas tax in Michigan. This tax passed in 2015 was designed to be brought in in phases so we as taxpayers aren’t hit all at once. Beginning in 2022 we can expect the tax to be linked to the consumer price index. The good...
To the editor: After reading the Three Rivers Commercial News Feb. 17, our county administrator does not think very much of the public keeping track of what the county commissioners are actually doing. There have been several individuals working with the Lockport electors and the Lockport attorney...
To the editor: Reading about the group of Three Rivers residents who attended the Jan. 21 Women’s March on Washington leads me to understand that among the participants in that function were well educated professional individuals who have a deep concern for and grasp of the issues which spurred...
