Why do we have to pay?
Tuesday, August 07, 2012 2:48 PM | Updated ( Tuesday, August 14, 2012 2:01 PM )

We know life isn’t fair, and gas/fuel prices are among the most seemingly unfair aspects of life—but why are we “paying the price” during this recent spike?
 According to gasbuddy.com, refinery blips and a pipeline rupture set the prices soaring, prompting Gov. Rick Snyder to place the Upper Peninsula under a fuel emergency, allowing fuel delivery trucks wider operating hours.

‘Obamacare not the answer’
To the editor:
 In response to an editorial in the Reporter on July 11, 2012:
 Obamacare only gives one false hope. It supports and promotes a broken health care system. This system does not promote health and should be relabeled the “Sick Management” system.

Get out and vote

 This is our customary reminder that the election takes place next Tuesday, Aug. 7, and that all of us ought to take advantage of our chance to voice our choice at the ballot box.
 Really, our opinions do make a difference. County voters will decide a number of township races, several county offices and seats on the County Board. With no Republicans filing in county races, the results of next week’s Democratic primary decides who holds these offices for the next two or four years.

 
A good time for all

If you weren’t at the Windsor Center on Wednesday, Aug. 18, you probably could hear the shouting and cheering from just about any corner in town.
 “Always… Patsy Cline” just about brought down the house, and to say it was “a good time for all” would be an understatement.
 The two stars, imported for the occasion by the Friends of Camp Batawagama – Maggy Norden (as Patsy) and Gail Westerfield (as Louise) -- wowed the capacity filled auditorium at Windsor.

Contract for education

Would you like to see your children’s school district run by an out-of-state company?
 That’s what happened last week in Muskegon Heights, when its emergency manager turned over operations to Atlanta, Ga., based Mosaica Education, an education service provider. The district will start as a K-12 charter system in the fall. According to the EM, the district was losing $18,000 per day last year.

Inside the health bill

 Did you know that football season started several months ago? Well it did. Only this kind of game doesn’t involve helmets or striped playing fields.
 In fact, political football season never ends. The latest twist in the plot came from the Supreme Court with its decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—best known, especially among Republicans, as “Obamacare.”

Healthcare turmoil
Tuesday, July 03, 2012 2:34 PM | Updated ( Tuesday, July 10, 2012 11:52 AM )

With last week’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act, probably better known as “Obamacare,” the future of any kind of real healthcare reform in this country still remains in doubt.
   Just what it will do, if anything, and how it will do it, still remains something that no one on either side of the political spectrum has been able to articulate with any certainty.
