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...
To the editor: When I registered to vote, I identified as an Independent. I applauded the President when, a few days ago, he said, “In these times, we have to unify.” For that reason, I was grieved that some people have been harassed for trying to restart the Crawford County Democratic Party...

To the editor: The ‘Swamp’ has become a frequently used misnomer for our nation’s capital. Ethically challenged elected officials, party hacks and fake news sources use the term to demean the American government. This practice is almost assuredly a result of the toxic partisanship that stains our...
