Ms. Nature has given us something to work on. COVID-19 will show us how inadequately prepared we are for the spread of an airborne virus in today's world. The problem with COVID-19 is that it can be carried for such a long time without showing symptoms. Basically you can’t tell who’s a carri…
The Democratic Party of 2020 is nothing like it was in the past. I can remember when both parties shared values based on the Constitution and faith in God. They simply differed on the best way to implement these values in the best interest of the American people.
I have become completely alarmed by the Cherry Grove Township sewer system management. The Lake Mitchell Sewer Authority (LMSA) has sent letters to residents regarding rate increases over the last few years, equal to about a 200% increase. The letters stated these increases were to “cover a …
On February 1, 2020 the Lake Mitchell Property Owners sent a letter to Clam Lake, Cherry Grove and Selma Township notifying them that three of the sewer authority board member's terms had expired and the board was illegally conducting business. We asked for a legal board with more property o…
The recent campaign by gun-rights advocates and the NRA to make counties within Michigan Second Amendment Sanctuaries is confusing. I’m not an anti-gun rights advocate, although I do not aspire to the total blanket protections the NRA claims with, “the right of the people to keep and bear ar…
This past December, our community experienced the sudden loss of Captain Miranda Duskin who, along with her husband Captain R.C., came here in 2018 to serve Cadillac and the surrounding area through the Salvation Army.
I am encouraging everyone to vote no on the Missaukee County Recycling proposal. I agree that everyone should recycle. However, the money that is collected from this tax will not be used entirely for recycling.
During the Senate hearings regarding the impeachment of Donald Trump, some interesting legal scenarios came out. During the hearings the legal scholar and advisor to the president Attorney Alan Dershowitz stated before the US Senate, a president running for re-election and feeling his candid…
It is cool that our county seems headed for the NRA led 2nd Amendment sanctuary label. Unfortunately, it doesn't take it far enough. I propose we become a Constitution Sanctuary County, so that all articles of the Constitution will be supported and enforced in our county.
Recently I had the opportunity to see a primary election ballot for the Cadillac area. How many of you realize that three names appear on the Republican presidential ballot along with President Trump? Mark Sanford, Joe Walsh, and Bill Weld. For Republicans, you do have a choice.
Yes, it is tax time again, as I’m doing my 2019 taxes I would like to thank former Governor Snyder, state representatives, and former Senate Sen. Darwin Booher, who served for 16 years, for taxing my pension. I worked for my pension in my careers of 40 years. I believe Darwin's best legislat…
I am getting used to our president vilifying his opponents, spreading falsehoods, constantly campaigning, placing himself at the center of everything, but not as he did at the National Prayer Breakfast. So I would like to address this for all of you that can’t see through his use of religion…
I admit being late recognizing our president as the chosen one. The genius who saw the flaws of our forefathers and thinking a group of elected people could come together and run a country as great as America.
My wish for the New Year is that every person who has been hurt or traumatized by sexual abuse will tell their story and receive the help they need so they can experience freedom and joy. As the executive director at Healing Private Wounds I see many people who have been emotionally and phys…
I read with interest the notice of public hearing from the Lake Mitchell Sewer Board. It seems to me that the goal of a public hearing should be to gather as much input as possible from those affected.
I was lucky enough to be a shopping partner during Walmart's recent "Shop with a Hero" event. Myself, Cindy Little, and George and Marcia Grames attended as members of American Legion Post 94 here in Cadillac. I cannot speak for George and Marcia, but I'm sure they share the same feelings as…
