Expanding the meaning of pro-life

Michigan Supreme Court vote

EDITOR: Chief Justice Bridget Mary McCormack and Elizabeth Welch are voters’ top choice for the Michigan Supreme Court this November. They believe courts must be independent, transparent and fair. Together, they bring a lifetime of service to people who otherwise would not have had a ...

Confused about the confusion

EDITOR: In Saturday, Oct. 24 paper, the headline was regarding postal delays because of mail-in voting. Really? Anybody with half a brain knows that these stories are made up. Printed to cause anxiety among the voters. Not so long ago, everyone used the postal service t pay bills, write ...

Cheap shots at candidate

EDITOR: I heard of a letter that made the paper recently. Phil Strom’s letter was endorsing a candidate while taking cheap shots at the opponent. Seriously, one would think that after the mess he left in this county that he would go to such lengths. Seeing his name brought back memories of ...

Support for Milkiewicz

EDITOR: Todd Milkiewicz is a life-long resident of Delta County, recently retired. As a volunteer, he has served our community as a member of the city planning commission, and for the past two years as a member of the Escanaba Area School Board. His principal service over the past 25 years ...

Gun ban at polls

EDITOR: The Whitmer administration has involved itself in a form of voter suppression. Jocelyn Benson, secretary of state has unilaterally suspended our rights as citizens. She has declared “… open carry of guns on election day in, or close to any voting location – polling place, ...

Voter fraud

EDITOR: Much talk about voter fraud. It sure does happen. I witnessed large scale voter impersonation when living in Milwaukee in 2008. Two hours before the polls closed on Election Day, a string of cars roared into our quiet neighborhood one vehicle stopping at the end of each block. I ...

Support for Segorski

EDITOR: This letter is being authored to support Jamie Segorski, candidate for the Escanaba Area Board of Education. I have known Jamie for the last approximate 22 years through a working relationship and subsequent friendship. You won’t find anyone who cares about the children of this ...

Think before you vote

EDITOR: There are many people it seems who decide who they vote for, not so much on what the party/person actually stands for, but party loyalty. I would like to suggest that you familiarize yourself with one particular issue and what it’s implications are. Namely, gun control. Please take ...

Time for a change in Lansing

EDITOR: Janice Dault wrote a letter I found distressing. She will vote for Mr. Trump because “he has done so many great things to save this country and she’s “disgusted” with the left who “kill our babies, give tax dollars to illegals and criminals, and would cement the loss of ...

Support for Moyle

EDITOR: I read the letter to the Editor on 10/6/20. I found it a little irritating as it seemed to play Mr. Moyle as an unprofessional and incompetant man. I would like to share that I have held various professional roles locally. As an advocate for many vulnerable people, Mr. Moyle has ...

Cancel Christmas parade

EDITOR: Cancel the Christmas parade. December 4th is close at hand, which means people are planning and building their floats now, when the positivity rate for COVID-19 is at an all-time high. Delta County has the fourth highest rate per capital in Michigan, so there is a lot of virus ...

What cost copay?

EDITOR: You ‘Opinion’ page on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020 expressed the idea that the copay for being flown by helicopter to Walter Reed and have a dozen doctors treat you with experimental drugs might be construed as too much for a sitting President? However, I believe his health insurance ...

COVID too close to home

EDITOR: We talk about “Yooper Strong”. Now’s the time to be really strong. My son who is 43 years old has the COVID in Lansing and he has been in and out of the ER. He has been sick since Oct. 1 and is still fighting . He has had an issue with his lungs, fever, chills and severe cough. ...

Qualified candidate

EDITOR: I offer an answer to Keith Whitman’s “simple question,” which appeared in the Daily Press, October 15: Yes, we do need someone like Dr. Renee Richer with expert knowledge in biology to represent us in Lansing, because our current Representative has sadly misled and ...

Halloween — the way I see it

EDITOR: If anything can be learned from the past seven months, it is that we need less government “control.” The government does not solve problems, government IS the problem. We don’t need more control, we need less control. More freedom. I anticipate that some day, real soon, we are ...

Respect the flag

EDITOR: Every Saturday, 10,000 babies are murdered under the banner of Planned Parenthood. No news media reports this atrocity. Instead they acquiesce to an organization called Black Lives Matter. If you suggest not only black lives matter, but all lives matter, you will be called a racist. ...
