Poorly maintained crossing

A Letter to the Editor published in the Tomahawk Leader Fire Prevention Week and a loss for a truly wonderful family: Last evening the sirens started coming down S. Tomahawk Avenue with sickening regularity and later on another fire truck joined the earlier units, all passing by my home at 602 S. To...

What hypocrisy

Published as a Letter to the Editor in the Tomahawk Leader: The Vice Presidential debate was fascinating to watch. It certainly portrayed the stark contrast between the two parties. One question was particularly enlightening. Since both men are Catholics, the moderator asked how their religious beli...

Letter to the Editor in the Tomahawk Leader: If you didn’t already know it, which could only happen if you live in a cave, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I am a two-time breast cancer survivor so you’d think I’d love this month, right? Wrong. I’m tired of the onslaught of pink everywhere....

Re: Political endorsements: Tiffany

It is totally inappropriate for any city or city official to step into the political fray to endorse a candidate. If the letter was on official letterhead, is that legal? Several years a...

Wolf season based on fraud

Published in the Oct. 16, 2012, Tomahawk Leader: This hasty wolf season (Act 169) is based on fraud – not science – and should be scrapped. The federal government named “Tribes” and “wildlife professionals” (scientists) to manage wolves. Legislators Suder and Rivard are neither – yet authored the &q...

Don’t fall for it

Published in the Oct. 30, 2012, Tomahawk Leader We have heard a lot about downsizing government and creating jobs lately, but no one explains just how that works. Perhaps we should look around and see what examples might exit. Take the state of Michigan for instance. In 2010, soon-to-be Gov. Rick Sn...

So much to say about last night's game. Apparently if you catch the guy who has the ball in the final seconds of the game that counts as a touchdown, too.
