Mr. Hunter, you got me AGAIN! Your "Unsolved" series is fantastic. I've always enjoyed your writing for its detail and your passion showing through. Thank you for sharing this segment of our hometown history that I'd only heard tiny bits of prior.

Article on Hale Currier
November 30, 2018 | 12:58 PM
Hi Doug, I don't know if you remember me; I grew up in Capac and was best friends with your neighbor, Mary Ann Moss. I remember the disappearance of Hale Currier well. My parents, Chuck and Ann Lincoln, were close friends with the Curriers. My father taught both of their sons, Phil and Jim, in Capac High School. Though only a child, I remember my father joining other townsmen in going to Newberry to search for Hale. I have saved other articles through the years. My family remained friends with his wife, Lucy, as well as both Phil and Jim. Your article brought back memories.

I now live in FL, but have read all 3 parts and found it very interesting and well written. This should be added to the Capac schools curriculum of Michigan history.

Very interesting, I grew up in Capac, in the 50's and 60's, and never heard this story before. Would like to read Part 1 and Part 2. I remember Mr. Bade, I believe he was killed in a plane crash , up North.

Calvin and Robin Whitmore house

The house was beautifully detailed and this color scheme shows off many fine and rare architectural details. I encourage all who are interested in historic authenticity to take a look. I just hope someday the Whitmores provide a home tour for the public because I'm sure the interior of that once-proud home is making a serious comeback.

This house is fabulous and even better looking when standing in front of it! You need to see it in person to appreciate the detail in the painting, etc!

We enjoyed reading the article about the Whitmore's Victorian home. It is truly beautiful. We have a Victorian neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky near the University of Louisville campus. We always take family and friends to that neighborhood when they visit our area. We will have to make a visit to Imlay on our next trip north. What a beautiful place!
Swiss Farms article

Great article,as is Swiss Farms and the Zach family!

I watched this episode of reasonable doubt and I was truly offended and appalled by the police's interrogation or a better word for it bulling tactics. I can't believe that our justice system tolerates that behavior from our police. They were not interested in getting to the truth but it was all about getting a confession. I am in 100% support of the men & women who serve our communities but they need to be called when they abuse their power.
2018 Police Millage request
July 26, 2018 | 11:15 AM
Is this request for police department only not for other uses?
July 19, 2018 | 03:42 PM
I have read about this case and I have watched the episode of reasonable doubt now I don't always take show on their merit but this case has one of those that you really have to get to know and as I watched the program there was something about this young man that says he is innocent.
If we start with their love for each other shows that there was way he could have killed her.
The next is the text messages there is no proof that there was animosity toward each other no proof.
Then there is the interagation it proved that the cops had bullied this young man into a confession this young man knew nothing of the crime everything was put into this young mans head he knew absolutely nothing of the crime it showed when the cop mentioned about possible sucicde why would the cop even bring that up if thiey thought this young man exacuted her it makes no sense.
So I like many other people believe this young man is innocent.

INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
July 07, 2018 | 02:02 AM
Every time I read another story of abuse of power by elected/appointed or assigned individuals in our justice system I experience incredible trauma
July 04, 2018 | 03:22 PM
First, I wish the paper would publish the community comments on this post and not just the committees spin on things. Second, the date stinks. Not only is it Fathers Day weekend, it's graduation open house and weddings in June. I heard a lot of people say their schedule kept them from going. Third, performers asking for tips is not my idea of a community festival. Let's celebrate the rural area that we are & not try to compete with urban areas.
July 04, 2018 | 12:26 PM
Not happy with date. To many weddings & graduation parties during that time. Was VERY disappointed hat there was not many craft tents as in previous years with the blueberry festival. Not enough variety of food trucks. But.... hopefully t
Let's do it again!
July 04, 2018 | 09:51 AM
It was all kid friendly. The buskers had my small granddaughters attention with their fun performances. The future busker contest had good participation by local kids. The parade was fun. I never made it to the beer tent because I was so entertained by the street performers. My two cents;)
DONT BRING IT BACK!!
July 03, 2018 | 05:48 PM
Not child's friendly, where are all of the shops and food trucks? Bring back the blueberry fest!!!
Enjoying the riders
June 26, 2018 | 06:06 PM
Congrats onthe well organized ride. They went by my home, had a stopping spot right down the road from me, and were very respectful. Was good to see all ages. Looked like a good time for families to do things together. America needs more of that. Hopefully they choose this route again.

I had family that came from miles south and even southern states, that attended the blueberry festival, huge disappointment, the fireworks drug in so many people, I hate to say it but having the busker festival is not going to bring near as much revenue as the blueberry fest. And what about little miss blueberry? Or the pie eating contest? Weve been known for the blueberry fest for years. Very dissapointing decision on the city's part.
June 21, 2018 | 09:01 PM
I would like to see the festival date moved back to the normal time. Also what happened to the fireworks??? I think these 2 things had a huge affect on your attendance
Busker festival organizers opinion, nobody is really asking the
June 21, 2018 | 02:04 PM
The attendance to the festival was horrible, everyone was out of town. What happend to all the street vendor? The fun activities? The only "fun"ť activity was the parade and even that was nothing like it used to be. 3rd street needs to be closed if I saw random cars pulling out of during the parade that needed to be controles and it wasn't. Bring back the blueberry festival.
Organizers weigh in on first Busker Fest
June 21, 2018 | 01:32 PM
Nobody was in town... Attendance was lower than any recent Blueberry Festival, with one exception - the parade. People came out for the parade because it was the only portion of the festival that had any sort of local/community connection that people could identify with. Bringing in random street performers from parts unknown is pointless. Better planning and execution of the Blueberry Festival to improve attendance would have been a MUCH better use of effort, than a new event with no roots...
Weighing reactions from few people who actually attended the Busker Fest, is pretty skewed - as it does not consider the droves of people who avoided it.
Justice 4KC and accountability in our Justice system
June 14, 2018 | 09:32 PM
I applaud the fight for KC
It is too bad that the rest of us have to get involved to hold our justice system accountable. Too many times the lack of passion for the truth causes people to be complacent and downright lazy. Only will ourservice agencies be held accountable if we continue to keep a leash on these services. We can trust policy but we cannot always trust the people who enforce the policy. And the only way to enforce policies is to hold those accountable that take their decisions and positions lightly. It's too bad that these things happen but when they do we are called to fight for one in the name of all, holding our justice system on a leash. Praise God the Truth does set us free.

I was shocked at the investigation into this murder, this is the most obvious miscarriage of justice I've seen to date. How they didn't locate her at her aunt's before sending searchers is the first hint that they had no idea what they were doing, the coercion of the "confession"ť that wasn't a confession is another. I'm confused as to how the jury could find him guilty with such a lack of evidence. I'm not in law enforcement or any form of detective but it's obvious to a layman there wasn't sufficient evidence to convict not to mention the young man's demeanor and obvious love for this poor girl who hasn't gotten justice
