The article published on March 8 titled "It takes rural people that understand how to get to rural citizens" provided much-needed Information. I disagree with the following, though. "Delaat cited a recent poll that showed Republicans are less likely to say they’ll get vaccinated.‘ I believe …

My husband and I recently received our second coronavirus vaccinations from the Wexford County District 10 Health Department and wish to express our appreciation to the staff and volunteers operating the program. We found them highly efficient, professional, and kind. The folks were truly ex…

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and praise our small town hospital staff for their amazing care and dedication during my recent hospital stay. A big thank you to the doctors, nurses, CNA‘s, respiratory therapists, cleaning staff and the ER staff. The farewell send off in the I…

The COVID-19 vaccines are Michigan’s best hope for ending the pandemic and since December 22, 2020, District Health Department No.10 has administered more than 22,000 vaccines throughout our ten-county jurisdiction. Progress is being made, although often not as fast as we would like.

To impeach Donald Trump was a big mistake. Granted, I believe he incited a violent insurrection in an attempt to stay in power, despite his having lost the election — an election in which voting procedures were subject to the most careful scrutiny of any previous election, with no significan…

People running in our roads this winter need to remember it is not lawful for you to run on a road. I have checked with the local police and it is not my responsibility to move out of my traffic lane for you. If a wreck should happen and I am out of my lane, it is my fault. To the man who wa…

Watching the political events unfold these past months have been an incredible sight.

I was one of the many people vaccinated on Thursday, Jan. 28 at Cobb and Lynn Street. Smooth vaccination process. With proper ID, in and out in about 25 minutes; Roll down your car window, roll up your sleeve, shot, bandaid, and a short observation, and then home.

As I watched on TV the busses and cars rolling into Cadillac after the victory in Edwardsburg and the laughter, smiles, cheers, honking, and just a shining moment in time, I thought of words from one of Hopkins poems; “What is all this juice and all this joy?‘

In response to the gentleman writing about term limits, yeah, all for it, along with no exorbitant benefits like pensions and healthcare for life after just a few years of service. A local person comes to mind after just a couple of years of doing nothing but now has health care and pension …

I believe the news of our beloved America is deceitfully tainted. I believe it strongly resembles a path to socialism and even communism that spews lies yet clearly indicating truth.

There are federal politicians that have made a living (career) off “We the People‘ (taxpayers). I believe politicians should have a limit, of let’s say 10 years maximum in Congress. If you can’t get things accomplished for the people during that time period, you surely can’t get it done in a…

The people who live in Wexford and Missaukee Counties should be, and without any doubt are, extremely grateful to Judge Fagerman for his many years of service as our Circuit Court Judge. While it seems very inadequate to say so, I wish to include myself among the many who wish to say a simpl…

I am so proud that I live in a city where the local newspaper has as its front page for the Christmas edition, the message of the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We have been blessed in Wexford/Missaukee Counties over the past 60 years with good and fair Circuit Court Judges in William Peterson, Charles Corwin, and William Fagerman. Soon, we will be saying goodbye to Judge Fagerman.

All citizens of the State of Michigan, be they Democrat or Republican, should be outraged by the actions of our local representatives last week. As per a couple of excellent articles in this paper, Michigan’s US Representatives, John Moolenaar, Bill Huizenga and Jack Bergman, joined by the l…

Who knew that Jack Bergman, Bill Huizenga, John Moolenar and Tim Walberg were not defenders of democracy?

I am writing in regards to Senate Bill 1253, a bill that is set to reach the State House soon. It is an effort to cap public health emergency orders to a 28-day timeline. I would encourage the State House representatives to vote "No" regarding this bill due to the inadequate and antiquated r…

A huge "thank you" is in order for our state police and any other law enforcement personnel involved in the ordeal which took place in McBain on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020.
