CAPAC -- The canibus capital ?
December 27, 2017 | 11:37 AM

Really !!! I'm one resident just sitting here shaking my head. Apparently only one member of the council believes this county's law enforcement.Why do they think Mr. Roman doesn't want to build this in his county ?? Why would he bestow the honor of being the possible canibus capital of Michigan on this backwards little community that can never really find it's direction. Maybe out of the kindness of his heart he's trying to increase our property values. And while we're at it , maybe we can write an ordinance , find some investor's, annex some more land to the city , and put in a landfill to block out the stench of the POT growing !!!!

"Busker" is an education in itself
December 15, 2017 | 01:59 PM

The rest of the world uses "Busker" rather than "Street Performer". The USA is just about last to recognize these artists whereas it's been a tradition in Europe for centuries. Websites like Busker Central have helped to educate the unknowing. However, we could split the difference and call it the Blueberry Busker Festival.

Some readers understand that your trying to have more jobs for people by creating the marijuana plant but statistics show that the most court cases are about guns, drugs, and prostitution or sex slaves.
For prostitution or sex slaves, statistics show that pimps go to truck stops and rest areas for business. I'm not saying it's going to happen for sure just that it's a high possibility.
On top of that, you want to build a legal marijuana plant. Others understand that it'll be beneficial by increasing jobs and that it won't be noticeable. However, drugs have the most court cases. Also, there is a marijuana corporation just north of Imlay City which is 15 minutes away.
All in all, if we include the top three cases in court in one small town, it is not going to look good. Who exactly did they ask about the plant to? What kind of people are they personally? What other way can we get jobs in Capac?

I think this is a good thing e tax base and employment would be a plus for Capac and surrounding area, I Vote yes , and I believe that the local residents should be the ones to vote on it to show the approval or disapproval for the community.
Only legal medical marijuana clients can use such facilities

Sue Linton contacted me to send letters written by my grandmother to her grandmother after our fathers were shot down and became prisoners of war. If not for Sue's efforts, my family and I might not have found out about Thunder in Heaven and the Beek Memorial Dedication. My family, including my 93 year old mother, (the only surviving spouse) traveled to the Netherlands for the dedication. There I finally met Sue, and we have become dear friends. I will never be able to thank her enough!

Busker Festival vs Performers Paradise Festival
November 05, 2017 | 11:28 AM

The idea is interesting...but the name needs something more catchy and inviting....not many people recognize what a Busker is....and the name in and of itself is not attractive....the blueberry festival name had alliteration and is recognizable as well as likeable (most people like blueberries). My daughter, by the way, was heart broken....will they still have an Animal Parade and other activities for children? How will the schedule and activities change? Why not call it Performers Paradise Festival?

I did some time with John in LCJ while he was awaiting trial. I couldn't possibly say enough good things about the guy. He was the only one who showed compassion for the pain and suffering I went through during my first week of being incarcerated and with out the medications that I had been prescribed and dependent upon for many years. He helped me through a truly difficult time. He was a very kind, intelligent, well mannered, and helpful man. It's a shame to hear he will have to serve some of the last years of his life in prison.

comment on the above editorial
July 14, 2017 | 08:34 AM

I appreciate your editorial and all the coverage from The Moving Wall visit. My one concern is that you state "Standing in full view of the 58,000 plus names of those who died is nothing less than emotionally charged and deeply moving." How do you honor the "plus" names. There are exactly (new names not screened on The Moving Wall until this winter), as of right now there are 58,315 names inscribed on that wall and every one should be honored and not just pointed out as plus, the 58,000 plus. We must remember the past or as they say we will be condemned to repeat it. Forget no one from this tragic war. There are veterans still dying from the wounds they received in battle. Remember them all! 58,315 Thanks for the space.

similar accident
June 25, 2017 | 08:19 PM

I to had a similar accident with a mower cutting a like my dog was staked to. He was attached to a line fastened to a stake screwed into the ground. He suddenly ran in front of the mower and the line was cut, yanking the harness off of him and wrapping it around the mower blade! Fortunately he wasn't injured and didn't run off. Obviously not a good idea to do this with your dog! Wondering what Brinkley's cause of death was ?

I sent an email to you regarding how to find more areas mentioned in "The Thumb Pointed Fingers" but it failed to send. If you go to my website -, you will see a section "where it happened" and it will show a tour. Course, you've already been to Tyre but maybe, in the future, you might take another road trip with the tour info. Thanks for the write-up.
