Letter to the Editor: Major props to our city manager

Dear Editor, Taking a moment before the weekend bleeds into another workweek and an illustrative event is lost. Back in the late afternoon January 7, I witnessed some bad behavior on Main Street, some excellent behavior on Main Street, and, finally, directly experienced dedication and kindness from our city manager. First, the bad behavior: As […]

Letter to the Editor: Looking for more Clarkston history

Dear Editor, I read Messrs. Haven and Fisher’s pieces in the January 12 edition of The Clarkston News, each briefly addressed portions of Clarkston’s history going back to the 1830s. I found the information fascinating. I also read Don Rush’s editorial, wherein he requests more input from the community. OK, here is my suggestion. I would like […]

Letter to the Editor: Looking back, looking forward

Dear Editor, Wouldn’t time travel be fun, to fly forward and backward, on the time continuum, like Marty McFly, 1.21 gigawatts, past and future, around the globe and be home for dinner?

To the dear lady I love: A poem by Judy Wilson

Letter to the Editor: Snow, leaves blocking driveway

Letter to the Editor: Snow, leaves blocking driveway

Dear Editor, My wife and I have lived on Tiohero Boulevard in the Thendara Park subdivision since 1979. The issue is this: There is a problem with road snow removal. When the snowplow comes and clears the road, the snow gets deposited in my driveway as high as three feet. This has been going on […]

Letter to the Editor: Residents want planner to stay

Dear Editor, We are writing to support Sam Moraco and keep him on the Independence Township Planning Commission. We purchased property, built a house, and moved here over 30 years ago because we wanted to avoid the “development at any cost” mentality of some on the surrounding communities. Sam has been one of the few […]
