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...
Since my retirement, I’ve found myself busier than I was when I was punching a time clock. This is common among many retirees. I’d like to think of myself as a professional volunteer, but that could be looked at as an oxymoron, because professionals get paid for their time, and the only pay a...

This is the same behavior that is currently happening, Obama had nominated a Supreme Court Justice but Republicans refused to even have a hearing which is...
There are two topics I try to avoid when putting this column together. They are religion and politics. I witnessed my father arguing both topics as I was growing up and I vowed to not waste my time arguing over such personal issues. Besides, I feel everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, and who...
To the editor: Do we have a president or a dictator? The way Trump is racing through controversial Executive Orders leaves me in doubt. In his Inaugural speech he claimed control of government would be returned to the people. To my knowledge and supported by the marches and rallies across the...
To the editor: The way the Democrats are acting is totally uncalled for. It seems so childish to me. If there are any senators or others whom I may have voted for in the past they surely will not get any more votes!! You have a job to do. We have a new president who is doing a job but you don’t...
