LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thanks for appreciation of veterans

Dear Editor, In reading our local paper we came across the article “A time to remember” (by Kate Konczal, Independence Township Building Department, Page 26, Nov. 9). The picture in the article looked familiar and I suddenly realized it was a picture of the rear bumper of our car. She was writing about Mom and […]

SPIRITUAL MATTERS: Be grateful to God even now

It can be hard to be grateful when things don’t go your way, when you are fearful of the changes that are coming. It may be difficult to be grateful when your body is sick or diseased, or when you are in the middle of a financial challenge. Gratitude may be the last thing you […]

Letters to the Editor

Loss of Bart Clark still reverberates Dear Editor, That he came “home” would have been enough; a kind of symmetry for our community to have a tie back to the core root of its history. There was so much more he gave and meant to us individually and to our community. We are better off […]

Letters to the Editor

A stand against secret city files Dear Editor, The Clarkston News reported on the city’s victory in Susan Bisio’s Freedom of Information Act case (“Judge rules for city in FOIA case,” Oct. 26). As counsel for Mrs. Bisio, I want to clarify a few things. The News report has some inaccuracies, apparently prompted by inaccuracies […]

Election letters

Dear Editor, I love Clarkston. It is a beautiful, unique place to call home. With great pride I look around and consider what I have always enjoyed about the village council: It isn’t big government. We are neighbors working together to make life in Clarkston the best it can be for all of us. It […]

SPIRITUAL MATTERS: The virtue of being last

The idea of being last seems almost un-American. Who wants to be last? No one! Not in sports competition. Not in election results. Not on the world scene. But Jesus Christ told his disciples, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all” (Mark 9: 35). Jesus said that […]

Letters to the Editor

Reader offers positive suggestions Dear Editor, A while ago, I noted all the signs supporting the incumbent council candidates paid for by “Friends of CVC” and asked on Facebook for anyone to explain the reasons for this support. No response. I was glad to see Frank Schoebel’s letter in The Clarkston News (“Support for incumbents […]

SPIRITUAL MATTERS: Lost confidence this election?

The election for the President of the United States will be settled shortly. Many have said that the two candidates are the most disliked candidates in history. They both have very high negative ratings, as well as devoted followings. As I watch the news, I laugh when I see the hypocrisy of the media. The […]

Letters to the Editor

Support for incumbents Catallo, Sabol Dear Editor, Clarkston is a unique and beautiful place we proudly call home. Our combination of historic and contemporary neighborhoods, thriving business district, and the many events, activities and milestones that take place in our well-beloved Depot Park are the reasons people want to live, work and visit here. We […]

SPIRITUAL MATTERS: Simple life key to success

I think science has finally discovered what makes the political process work. Multiverses. Political candidates live in a different universe from everyone else. They come from an “interpenetrating dimension,” one that overlaps ours at this key point called “government.” This would explain the “cosmic inflation” of their egos and the “alternate realities” that they project […]
