Opinions

I’ve been part of farming and agriculture all my life and choose to live in St. Joseph County because of the rural values and morals found here. Voting is important to me and I’m not one to have someone tell me how to exercise this responsibility. I listen to others to form my opinion. I believe...
To the editor: Over the past few months, I’ve been doing some hard thinking about what the people I’ve voted for have really done for me these past few years.

To the editor: I would like to know why Geiber Park at the corner of Fourth and Broadway was renamed. Former Mayor Kathy Geiber saw a need in her neighborhood for a safe place for the kids to play. She raised funds via donations on her own to put in a basketball court and playground equipment. The...
