Opinions

As we grow and mature from a young child, to a teen and then an adult, we are often provided with words of wisdom, advice, solicited or unsolicited or other comments from our elders. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and even older siblings, offer to us what they consider to be important pieces...
To the editor: Carol Higgins taught in Marcellus schools for 16 years. She was raised on her family farm and has been a farm partner. She is a small business owner and chairs the board of the St. Joseph County Conservation District. She has the experience we need in Lansing. Carol is not a career...
To the editor: I consider myself a conservative and I feel our country is at a political/economical/moral/social crossroad currently. I will say I’d never vote for Hillary because she stands for everything that is wrong in the current political structure. On the other hand we have Trump. He’s rude...
To the editor: We are faced with Life and Death issues in this election. This summer, the media reported 2009 deaths by gunfire across the country in a one-month period. Eliminating Sunday and using an average of 27 days in a month, at 3,595 — the number of abortions performed in the US every day...

To the editor: Gary Mathers is a long-time resident of our village and a valuable asset to our community. He is well-respected by many village residents and the village council members he serves with. We feel his leadership would benefit the community. Gary and Tamara Kufeldt Donald and Ruth...
Visiting Honolulu is nice, but it doesn’t mean that you have really been to the true Hawaii. There is so much more to see and do. The same can be said for Michigan. Kalamazoo and the Three Rivers area are also very nice, but to experience the true Michigan, I feel you should venture north of Grand...
To the editor: At a time when goods and services are becoming more and more accessible online; and at a push of a button, these goods and services can be delivered within 24 hours or less. With the convenience of this technology and fast shipping, it’s easy to forget there are still millions of...
To the editor: There are two pipelines carrying oil across the Strait of Mackinac. These pipes are 63 years old. They are covered with some kind of crust. Supports are broken in some places.
