Thanks for Hoops for Troops support
The Clarkston High School Girls Basketball program would like to thank everyone involved with the Fourth Annual Hoops for the Troops Basketball game that took place Feb 7.

Request for focus on more viewpoints
It was inspiring to see students from Everest Collegiate High School attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C., featured in the Feb. 1 edition of The Clarkston News (“Students pass life message at march”).
I think it is critical for all members of our community, especially young adults, to be actively engaged in civic and social issues.
In order to promote an accurate and even-handed representation of the diverse opinions which exist in our community, I would encourage The Clarkston News to feature a similar article which highlights the many Clarkston families who showed up for the Women’s March in Washington, DC on Jan. 21 as well as the many local families who stood in support of Planned Parenthood on Feb. 11.
Let’s start acknowledging that multiple points of view can exist simultaneously and that Clarkston is far more diverse than often meets the eye.
There is an active, thriving, and growing progressive population in northern Oakland County which is ready to promote acceptance and inclusion. Please consider providing your readers some balance.
