State Supreme Court judge was inspirational

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Jan Korntved of Escanaba:

Last Friday evening my husband, Tom, and I had the pleasure of listening to and interacting with Michigan Supreme Court Judge Richard Bernstein. He is the only blind state Supreme Court justice in the country.

Judge Bernstein gave me hope for and confidence in the Michigan Supreme Court. He said the seven judges work together in a civil manner while respecting one another’s opinions.

He was approachable and took the time to speak personally with whomever wished to do so, staying well beyond the time he was scheduled to be there.

Thank you to the Delta Democratic Party for facilitating this fun, educational event at Leigh’s Winery.


Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.

We identify our bouquet recipients in one of two ways: from Daily Press news pages and from nominations sent in by our readers.

Mail us a postcard or letter identifying your nomination and putting into detail what they’ve done. Include your name, address, and phone number. Send nominations to Saturday Bouquets, The Daily Press, 600 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI 49829.
