To the editor: People often ask me what I am most proud of in my eight years as the St. Joseph County Prosecutor; and I always tell them the same answer, hiring Erin Harrington. In early 2009, I had a number of applicants that I interviewed and knew within a few minutes Erin was the perfect person...
To the editor: Fred Upton has been in the House of Representatives for 30 years. He’s the definition of a career politician. If you look at Fred’s voting record, there’s not a lot to show for it. He’s sponsored only six bills that have been signed into law. Six. That’s one every five years. The...
To the editor: Carol Higgins gets my vote. Carol Higgins supports promoting a living wage, restoring our infrastructure, reforming criminal justice, increasing public education funding, protecting our water and enhancing food security. Carol brings experience in being a small business owner, as an...
To the editor: It is my pleasure to endorse Gary Mathers for the position of Village President for Constantine. I was a former Village Trustee for 15 1/2 years and worked with him for many years before my wife and I moved to Peyton, Colo. I found that Gary was a very humble person, thought through...

To the editor: This upcoming election may very well be the most important election in the history of this country! The Presidential race forget all the banter you see or hear. You have the choice to vote for one that will take the country down the same old road as usual or you can vote for the...
To the editor: There’s an old saying, “If you want something done, give it to the busiest person.” I would add, if you want something done and you want it done right, give it to Carol Higgins. Carol Higgins is running for a seat in the 59th District of the Michigan House of Representatives. Carol...
I recently realized that I don’t really have a lot of buddies anymore. Oh, I have a buddy that I have lunch with once a week and I have a buddy that I might go with to the Conservation Club every so often, but I don’t have anyone that I feel comfortable with going to their house and asking if he...
