Letter to the Editor: Vote Need, McGinnis

Experience, integrity and commitment to our local community are three important credentials to be on the Clarkston School Board. Greg Need and Cheryl McGinnis have demonstrated all of those qualities during their years of service on the current school board. I have known Greg Need for many decades since we attended and graduated from Wayne […]

Letter to the Editor: More L-O-V-E at C-C-S

I support Amanda Love for Clarkston School Board because she has the passion and values to do what is right for our kids. When I met Amanda back in January and learned about her experiences as a mother of a child with special needs and three little ones, I was impressed with her strength. I […]

Letter to the Editor: More LOVE, less politics

I’ve known Amanda and Sam Love for a long time and my husband grew up with the Love brothers. Sam is an amazing school social worker and Amanda is a special needs mom. They are a blended family with two biracial kids. When I found out Amanda was running for school board, I supported her […]

Letter to the Editor: Questioning petition

Clarkston residents should be interested in the facts about how the signatures for the medical marijuana initiative were gathered. There were a total of 190 signatures on the pages submitted to the clerk. The clerk found most of the signatures were invalid. Only 88 were valid and 102 were not. I don’t know the reasons […]

Letter to the Editor: City financial issues

(Public comments from the Sept. 26, 2022 Clarkston City Council meeting) OK. The mayor did respond to my public comments in the last meeting, but with nothing to explain why City officials have not acted to repair the streets and sidewalks. The mayor prefers to not run for re-election on a ballot with a city […]

Letter to the Editor: Our kids need Love

Many support Amanda Love for Clarkston School Board, but most don’t have the privilege of calling her a friend. I have seen firsthand her dedication and love for not only her own five children but all children alike. When I first met Amanda over five years ago, I found out she had fostered three children […]

Letter to the Editor: Thanks for art show

It truly takes a village to make Art in the Village possible every September, and this year’s event was no exception. Our 50th annual show was one of the largest in recent history, and it was great to see Depot Park filled with so many people who have made it a free and family-friendly autumn […]

Letter to the Editor: Vote ‘no’ on weed

The unidentified outsiders promoting the marijuana initiative distributed a deceptive flier to some Clarkston residents. It’s full of lies. First, it says their medical marijuana stores will “raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in new tax revenue.” Not true. Medical marijuana stores—which is all that is on the ballot—don’t pay marijuana excise taxes and the […]

Letter to the Editor: Save the Mill Ponds

The Clarkston Mill Ponds Lake Improvement Board just issued its annual budget and assessment calculation for 2023. The bulk of the proposed budget is for aquatic plant management. Only Lower Mill Pond parcel owners are invoiced, and for reasons not described, there are no provisions for plant management/removal in the Upper Pond. I encourage the […]

Letter to the Editor: Extremely thankful

The Lakeview Cemetery Restoration Project is in its third year of cleaning and restoring the historic portion of the cemetery. Each Tombstone Cleaning Day during the school year (second Saturday of the month), National Honor Society students have been […]
