Opinions

To the editor: The 2018 general election is just a few days away and it reminds each of us of the importance of honesty, integrity and thoughtfulness in our elected officials.  Fortunately, we have had and continue to have one of the hardest working, thoughtful and caring members of congress on...
To the editor: Bombardment these last months and weeks coming up to the November election with "garbage" ads, and selected "misinformation" has made it difficult to choose which issues to address. However, recent new information on studies of the physical effects of the use of marijuana, both...
To the editor: When I received a letter from Glen Oaks Community College explaining how  you should vote for a new milage to repair the college, I have to question where the money came from to build the new dorm. The letter stated the college received a grant for one and a half million dollars...
To the editor: I’m proud to have Fred Upton as my congressman. He has always been there for my family and my business. He does not deserve the negative attacks that he has had to endure, no one does! Fred has been one to work with both Democrats and Republicans and has always fought for everyone...
