Letter to the Editor: Praise to our DPW

Letter to the Editor: Praise to our DPW

Dear Editor, After a week of clean up of downed tree limbs from two ice storms, Clarkston DPW workers handled 10 inches of heavy, wet snow Friday night. This snow is not easy to move. I know from blowing my driveway and front walk twice in about four hours that evening. Even heavy equipment is […]

Letter to the Editor: Thanks for clean up

Dear Editor, I want to give a shout out to Clarkston’s DPW and the Oakland County Road Commission for the assistance they provided following the ice storm last week. On Feb. 27, I received a call from our dog sitter, staying at our house, that a large part of one of the front trees had […]

Letter to the Editor: Getting the medal

Dear Mr. Rush, On behalf of my father, I would like to thank you for the article that you wrote about the Ambassador For Peace Medal (Attention Korean War veterans! Have you gotten your medal? Clarkston News, Jan. 11, 2023). My father was a corporal in the Army, (1951-1953), during the Korean conflict. He received […]

Letter to the Editor: Save the Mill Pond

Thank you for the historic Holcomb home and property article (“Historic home sold; memories remain,” Clarkston News, Feb. 8, 2023). Since Butler Holcomb building the 1830s sawmill and trenching the mile-and-a-half long ditch on the east branch of the Clinton River for waterpower, the Mill Pond has thrived for two centuries as a focal point […]

Letter to the Editor: End the shootings

More than a decade ago, we failed the American children by allowing the Sandy Hook tragedy to occur without taking further preventative action. Last week, a Michigan State University student, Jackie Matthews, shared her story about surviving two school shootings, Sandy Hook and MSU, and having lifelong physical and mental repercussions. She is not the […]

Letter to the Editor: Government priorities

One cannot say Democrats are not organized. A letter run on these pages two weeks ago mimicked Biden’s State of the Union presentation so well; you could suppose the letter writer had been provided an advance copy! Her remarks were filled with the same mischaracterizations as his speech. Government, particularly the federal government, has gone […]

Letter to the Editor: EV defects?

Last November, Clarkston City Council approved contracts for electric vehicle charging stations in city parking lots. Before the meeting, I sent a detailed email to council members noting several defects in the contracts. The city attorney assured the council he took care of those problems. He didn’t. Here are the persisting defects in those contracts: […]

Letter to the Editor: Say no to Meijer

I would like for someone to inform the community in the area of Sashabaw and Waldon roads of another misleading project that Pulte Homes is developing in “The Towns at Waldon Village.” The small Meijer “grocery only” being added into the village development is far from small. My wife and I visited one of those […]

Letter to the Editor: A hearty thank you

Dear Editor, We would like to thank all those that donated and/or helped with collecting, packing and sending 43 boxes to our troops stationed in Poland. In particular, we wanted to thank the American Legion Post 63, Katie Bowman of Bowman Chevrolet, and Dr. Kenneth Thomas, DDS, of Clarkston for their contributions to this project. […]

Letter to the Editor: Raise debt ceiling

There’s good news about the economy. Inflation has been coming down for the past six months and unemployment is very low. President Biden’s economic plan is working and improving lives for Americans. President Biden’s economic policies and the Inflation Reduction Act are reducing the deficit. President Trump increased the national debt by 41 percent, and […]
