Letter to the Editor: City attorney issue

Why does Clarkston continue to employ a city attorney who insists on conducting city business in secret? At the January 9, 2023, council meeting, he insisted that the council not publicly discuss the potential disputes regarding the Mill Pond Bed & Breakfast property, although the council discussed the matter at length at other meetings. He […]

Letter to the Editor: Thank you, Clarkston

Magically, Santa made a very special appearance at Calvary Lutheran Church on Nov. 12. The Rotary Club of Clarkston held its “Shoes for Kids” program benefiting Clarkston school children. This year, 400 children were invited to receive new shoes, winter boots, hats, and gloves from the Rotary Club. Each child showed their enthusiasm when picking […]

Letter to the Editor: Keeping kids warm

The Clarkston Rotary last Saturday invited 400 Clarkston school children to our annual Shoes for Kids program. Over 320 volunteers worked over four days to collect donations and distribute new shoes, winter boots, hats, and gloves to the invited children.

Letter to the Editor: Solutions to keep dam

One of the things that made Clarkston such a desirable place to live is the mill pond. Now it is in jeopardy as the owners of the dam no longer want to pay the upkeep and liability. They are checking into having the dam removed and just a stream running through. Now, to the owners, […]

Letter to the Editor: Irked by township

The Independence Township board has two vacancies for the trustee position and nine candidates are being interviewed for these positions. The problem is that 75 percent of these candidates have township affiliations, and one has previously been forced to resign from a trustee position due to a conflict of interest with his employer. There are […]

Letter to the Editor: Vote yes on Prop 3

I am voting Yes on Proposal 3 because I am unwilling to insert myself into another unknown woman’s heartbreaking choices. Decisions about reproductive care are a woman’s to make with her family and her doctor. When a woman becomes pregnant, who am I to demand that she carry to full term, a pregnancy that was […]

Letter to the Editor: Forward Party

I appreciate your choice to limit letters to the editor, which contribute to the political polarization of our society. Since the 2020 presidential election, I have been running a Facebook group for my friends and family to encourage political discourse in a rational and respectful manner, which encourages people to work together to the betterment […]

Letter to the Editor: Vote yes to CCS

Your YES vote will provide students and teachers a safe, secure learning environment with the necessary resources […]

Letter to the Editor: Keep Need, McGinnis

Congratulations and a great hurrah for our school district planning and performance! In late September, our community was informed that Clarkston third, fourth and fifth grade students achieved the highest grade level proficiency in Oakland County. A Multi-Tiered System of Supports was introduced and adopted by the board earlier in 2021. Greg Need and Cheryl […]

Letter to the Editor: Fresh leadership

With a son in elementary school in Clarkston, I throw my full support behind Amanda Love for school board. She is the only one who had the energy to come to my house and explain why she is running. She cares about the future direction of Clarkston Schools. The people that are running for re-election […]
