To the editor: On Jan. 11, the home at 320 S. Washington in Constantine caught fire, a tragic occurrence for a family that lost everything, but also for the village. It was a historic home built in the early 1800’s by the Wells family. According to an 1877 History of St. Joseph County, the Wells...
To the editor: I attended the Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2016 State Boundary Commission hearing held at A Place In Time regarding the proposed sports complex to be located between N. Main St. and Buckhorn Road. My opinion is that it is the wrong location choice. I live on Buckhorn Road (North Portage Road...
To the editor: If we truly value human life, and that includes ALL life including, and not just limited to, the lives of unborn children, we must demand that our members of Congress protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act, not repeal it. Here are just a few facts that we can’t deny: •Women...
To the editor: When we know from experience the lethal consequences of oil spills in our lakes and waterways, how is it that our governing bodies ignore the threat of a pipeline that crosses the Mackinac strait? We should consider the groups that have a vested interest in the continuing flow of...

I am sorry to admit that I am not much of a reader and never have been. I’ve always read just enough to get by. If I do read a book, it’s usually a biography. My problem is that I have difficulty concentrating on just one thing at a time. As a student, I could not have any distractions, such as...
The Democratic Party has a serious problem, and the name of that problem is identity politics. Ever since Donald Trump’s surprise win on Nov. 8, identity politics has been a hot topic of discussion in the media. Many conservative analysts blame identity politics for Hillary Clinton’s surprise loss...
As a toddler, taking a nap was something I didn’t enjoy doing. At this time in my life, taking an afternoon nap has become quite enjoyable. It has become something that is also quite necessary, unless I want to find myself falling asleep during Jeopardy. I’m an early riser, even without an alarm...
To the editor: At this time of the year it is easy to be caught up in the rush of the season without remembering or even thinking of the reason we go through all of this “hullabaloo.” So as a way of slowing us down and getting us to reflect, I share a seasonal poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti called...
