To the editor: In response to Mr. Raymond Sullaman, I would like to assure you that none of us who signed the letter have any intention of presenting Iranians as “easily led” or in the least gullible. I myself learned that Iranians are shrewd businessmen while bargaining for things in the Grand...
To the editor: It was of great interest that my friends and fellow students read in the opinion section of your local paper “Avoid War With Iran.” Since your country allows free speech and freedom of the press I thought even though I am a student from Iran, you might do me the courtesy of hearing...
To the editor: We may think we’ve averted war with Iran. Well, sort of, for now. Sadly, there are people who want to keep the possibility of war alive. A good many others would like to keep our brave military alive by not engineering any more wars – especially wars we don’t need. There are so...
Students and their parents are faced with dozens of decisions in the final year of high school. Of all the big life choices ahead, perhaps the most important decision is where your student will be, and what career they’ll be pursuing, the fall after graduation. Choosing whether to go straight...

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...
