‘Education cuts affect our future’
To the editor,
On the heels of next week’s presidential elections comes “American Education Week,” Nov. 11-17, celebrating quality public education.  Local educators and school staff take pride in what is accomplished for the children of our communities, given cuts in funding, limited resources and larger class sizes.

To the editor:
Not every appearance of impropriety develops into a viable conflict of interest. After all, things often are not what they seem. However, conflicts of interest can and often do develop over time without being obvious or causing an appearance of impropriety, especially when most of us are unsuspecting and wish to remain outside of snarly controversies. It’s probably that not-seeing-the-forest-for-the-trees thing.

Bullies not welcome

It was just a few weeks back when a Michigan high school student made national headlines due to a vicious prank by some of her fellow students.
If you remember, she was picked by her classmates to be on her school’s homecoming court. But her fellow classmates were just having a little fun with her.
A sad story that could have been much, much worse if not for the fact that adult members of her community rallied to her defense, and made her day on the homecoming court a testimony to what’s really right with this country.

After school program ends
To the Editor,
The Crystal Falls Contemporary Center deeply regrets that we are no longer able to continue the After School Youth Program as it was originally intended.
The center is currently reviewing possible youth programming options.  The state of Michigan licensing agency is currently reviewing the program. 
An anonymous complaint was filed online stating that it was the belief of the person filing the complaint, that the center needed to obtain a daycare license to operate its after school program.
