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.

I believe the Democrats want to put a socialist government in America. I believe this would include defunding the police departments, open borders, allow illegal immigrants to stay, and be given free health care.

My 87-year-old mother-in-law and I were watching the City of Cadillac council meeting Monday, Nov. 16, 2020 on the website. As that one man clearly used that verbally extreme, informal language on live stream for all citizens to hear at the pubic website meeting, he spoke far beyond the boun…

I think it is time for people of Michigan to stand up and support our governor.

For the first time, my husband and I volunteered to be Election Inspectors, the official Michigan term for poll workers. We arrived at the polling site at 6:30 a.m., were sworn in then paired with an experienced worker who briefed us and stayed with us as we accomplished a particular duty. T…

I endorse Jason Elmore wholeheartedly and without hesitation. I believe and hope that when Judge Bill Fagerman retires, Jason Elmore will be the Honorable Judge Jason Elmore, 28th Circuit Court Judge for Wexford and Missaukee counties.

I am not a Cadillac native. I met Jason's parents after moving to the area. I did not know Jason until he became my neighbor quite a few years ago.

Dear voters of Wexford and Missaukee counties, we need to elect Jason Elmore as our next Circuit Court Judge. We need someone on the bench who has the experience in and out of the courtroom and who has dedicated his life to public service. 

Did you not know? Or did you forget? F.D. Roosevelt and the Democratic administration started Social Security in 1935 and the Republicans fought it tooth and nail. He also started the CCC for young men who couldn't find a job, the WPA for family men who couldn't find a job and surplus food f…
