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 […]

Letter to the Editor: Praise to ITFD EMS

I’ve lived in Clarkston over 30 years and I love it here. I have driven by the Independence Township Fire Station at Sashabaw and Clarkston roads a thousand times. I’ve always felt safer having them there, but luckily, I have never had to use them…until now. Around 4 a.m. on Jan. 4, I was hit […]

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: 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 […]
