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.

 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.
