Violent games don’t cause violence, reader says

Dear Editor, Some people are blaming violent behavior on mental illness and/or video games. These statements are totally false, scientifically and logically. I am a retired counselor who has been monitoring the issue of the relationship between video games and violence for over 50 years, and the results of scientific data has changed very little. […]

Reader finds taxes fast, road work too slow

Dear Editor, The Independence township “road improvement” millage was presented to voters by township officials as the “solution” to fixing the township/county road problems that we were told were in desperate need of repair. If passed, we were told, the township and the RCOC would have the money to move forward to get prioritized township/county […]

Sign suggestions from Main Street resident

Dear Editor, Last week’s article “City considers classic sign style” got me thinking. Obviously, Clarkston’s sign committee has too much time on their hands and wasting taxpayers’ money on their minds. Before this boondoggle goes any further, they should consider some signs that would improve life for the village residents. How about these for a […]

Loving ‘The Millstream’ newspaper features

Dear Editor, The articles on the Millstream pages are always illuminating and enjoyable—the piece on the Mill Pond bed and breakfast and its cordial innkeepers was especially so (“Innkeepers reflect on B&B ‘way of life,’” July 5). I learned much from Phil Custodio’s insightful article that also reaffirmed the special charm of Clarkston. The gracious […]

Thanks to contractors, suppliers

Dear Editor, Clarkston’s city hall expansion is under way with help coming from all over the county. Even people outside the city love this town and sure know how to show it.

A call to fix East Church Street

Dear Editor, I am writing you out of concern for East Church Street, a six-house stretch from the city line to Roselawn, in front of Renaissance High School. The potholes are so bad, to avoid damage to their vehicles, drivers using our street to access Roselawn and East Washington Street are driving on the sidewalk. […]

Ignorance is bliss when dealing with government

Dear Editor, If I were a Democrat, I would be sooooo very proud. Proud illegal immigrant children on the border have to live in such poor conditions. Proud of all the people of the world, along with their health issues and diseases, coming into our country. Think TB, HIV, measles, and Ebola. Proud I have […]
