I have received encouragement for this column almost daily from readers like yourselves. Many people have been following what is happening in downtown Three Rivers, and want to believe in a positive change. The revitalization work we are doing is important, and I believe someday soon, its results...
To the editor: The Republicans are negotiating. They have proposed a health care bill that is about as bad as you can get. When the bill is not accepted they will add a few benefits and it will get a few more votes. They will continue this until a bill is passed that is not good but is acceptable...
To the editor: “To serve and not be served.” Figure of speech or meaningful words of LCMS and other churches? Well, to some people they have meaning, but to the church member they may be a joke at best. As a member, try to get the leadership to answer a simple letter or a telephone call....
The final school bell has sounded for area school children. Teachers and student alike are ready for a break. Summer should be a time of rest, relaxation and fun for students. However, that doesn’t mean any and all learning has to stop. Back in my day (yes, I just aged myself by saying that), my...
It’s a small world after all, right? The earth is huge. There are over 7.5 billion people living on the earth. The earth is about 24,874 miles tall and 24,860 miles around, so when we were told as a child, teen or young adult, that “it’s a big world out there,” they weren’t kidding. On the flip...

To the editor: There are unexpected moments in a person’s life, and I had such a moment when I attended a dinner party where Father Theodore Hesburgh entered the room! We chatted, and when he discovered I was a Spanish teacher he started telling me in Spanish about all of his travels and missions...
To the editor: I wonder if anyone is keeping track of how much money is being wasted and time lost to build the new sports complex. Has anyone been to Schoolcraft’s complex? It is two miles out of town. Personally I think a nice place for the complex would be north of Meijer.Marlen Hetmansperger...
To the editor: I have been a member of the Community Mental Health Board of St. Joseph County for more than 10 years and have felt honored to serve in that capacity. The County Commissioners appoint members to the Board every April when four of the 12 members three-year terms expire. If the Board...
To the editor: Dear Kelli Atkinson, Thank you for your letter concerning the proposed Sports Center. You hit the nail on the head with a sledgehammer. “Respect the people who are directly involved in the decision when they have said NO several times.” I agree with you 100 percent.Lori Moore...
