To the editor: In Mr. Potter’s recent letter to the editor, he displayed quite a negative attitude about Grayling, and the country in general. I believe that Grayling cannot stay as it was 20 years ago or it will die. New construction must happen to keep the services, streets, sidewalks, and the...
To the editor: I can’t believe that unpopular issues and views are finally being printed in our local paper. I have sent in letters before but they won’t be printed. We have allowed the so-called powers to be/the good old boys to try and take over the country. It is not just one party or the...
The Leaders of the Republican Caucus in the Michigan House of Representatives want to pull public notices from newspapers and allow governmental entities (cities, villages, township, counties, etc.) to satisfy notice requirements by putting them on their websites. This is an unprecedented blow to...
To the editor: Early in May, this year, I received a phone call personally inviting me to a Commission on Aging (COA) volunteer recognition dinner. Of course I said I would be happy to attend but thought it a bit strange as I have not been able to continue as a volunteer Meals on Wheels driver...
To the editor: It’s not just disrespectful. It’s illegal! On April 29, after a beautiful service and having every courtesy extended to us by Sorenson-Lockwood Funeral Home, we began the slow funeral procession to Beaver Creek to say our final goodbyes to my mother. She was a 35-plus-year...
To the editor: The Michigan legislature is currently considering legislation that would define e-cigarettes as a tobacco product. As we face an epidemic of youth and young adults using e-cigarettes, it is important that e-cigarettes be regulated in the same manner as cigarettes and other tobacco...
To the editor: One of the most celebrated trout streams in the midwest is the AuSable River. At the Michigan History Center in Lansing, it is called the “River That Changed The World.” The river once held a beautiful, glittery, and iridescent fish. This fish is called the graying and is the...
To the editor: It’s time for our state representatives to stand up for cancer patients. I’m a cancer survivor, and I know how important it is to have fair access to treatment. Unfortunately, some cancer patients in Michigan who take oral chemotherapy are not being treated fairly. Cancer...
To the editor: We appreciated seeing the “Tea with Miss Bea” column of 9/20/18, which advised the mother of a daughter with depression and included key local resources, including Northern Lakes Community Mental Health. Your readers may be interested to know that a new resource will be coming to...
To the editor: Crawford County is surrounded by nature’s beauty, yet we are seeing concerning impacts from climate change due to carbon emissions. Think about the recent arrival of ticks to our woods, just one example how our local environment is changing.  Global temperatures have been highest...
