To the editor: In the days since I opened my copy of the Three Rivers Commercial-News, to see the photo of a young woman I hold in high regard, addressing the Three Rivers City Commission concerning the incident in Scidmore Park on July 25, 2019, I’ve found myself thinking more and more about this...
To the editor and publisher: Concerning your Thursday From the Desk of… I shudder to think that your resource for finding information is Google. While Goggle is a large repository of data, more than half of the information is incorrect, bloated, or used for other, sometimes nefarious, means. A...
To the editor: Climate change and nuclear war are the two most imminent threats to life as we know it. Since 1991 numerous treaties have been signed between the USSR and the US. Donald Trump took us out of a 2010 agreement and increased funds for nuclear weapons.  Every country with nuclear...
To the Editor: I receive the Commercial in hard copy and read it daily as I have for several years. I enjoy the local coverage and especially the sports coverage by Scott Hassinger. I don’t think that I have ever written a letter to a newspaper editor, but many of the references in the Commercial...
To the editor: What we don’t know might hurt us. Consider the plight of successful dairy farmer, Art Schaap, from New Mexico.

To the editor: Many of our footprints will remain in the hallways of Sturgis Hospital. The many years the employees dedicated their lives to work there. I for one worked during the “golden years” when you were recognized for works and deeds that you did especially if it was above average...
To the editor: I did some hiking in the mountains of North Carolina this summer. One day I climbed an access road about a quarter of a mile from the main road.  It opened into an area of several hundred acres that had been clear cut. All that was left were small trees that had been cut or uprooted...
My father reminded me more than once that if you don’t learn something new every day, you’ve missed out on a learning experience. I’m not sure if I accomplish this, but at least once a week, I learn a new word. The word this week is “Aphorism.” Aphorism is a statement of truth or opinion expressed...
To the editor: We urge all voters in St Joseph County to vote for John James for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Nov. 6. We need a combat veteran like John James in the Senate. There are way too few veterans in Congress these days. We need someone of John James’ caliber and generation to represent and...
