Reflections on Detroit’s comeback


Growing up in the Thumb, Detroit felt like a world away to me – big city vibes mixed with a tough edge, a far cry from country life. But now, as a homeowner in the heart of it all on 7 mile and Woodward, I see a city that’s bouncing back in a big way. It’s like watching a black […]

Greenfield of the Thumb?


As the new Administrator for Sanilac County Historic Village & Museum in Port Sanilac, I am honored to be a steward for such a magical site. We boast 17 historic buildings with a dozen moved here from across Sanilac County. We also host a wide variety of programming that are both entertaining and educational. I often hear the opinion that […]

Life lessons


I saw a recent news article headlined: “Elderly man killed in a hit and run.” The article described the victim as being 62 years of age. Reading this, I laughed and thought to myself, “Is 62 elderly”? I’ve made a few trips around the sun as well but I don’t think of myself as old, let alone elderly. However, my […]

Do the next right thing


Merry Christmas to my fellow citizens of Sanilac County. I wrote an article and had it ready for Mr. Levine’s editing when I realized, this is the week straddling Christmas and New Year’s. Many finished what is called Advent, which I recall as being a time of anticipation. Certainly, the birth of the Christian Savior was celebrated with great joy […]

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday, this time of year is all about creating memories and spending time with loved ones. One of the great things about the holidays is the sense of tradition that comes with […]

Athletes should compete against same gender


Dear Editor: Gender is a biological construct. Every cell in your body screams XX or XY. Gender identity is a psychological construct, fraught with biology. Sports performance is not solely but largely biological (physiological). Males, on average, are bigger up, down and sideways. They are stronger, faster and can leap tall buildings at a single bound more readily than XX […]

Senior citizen expresses views

Dear Editor: I am a 93 year old senior citizen who would like to express my views on the way our government is changing our way of living. I am seeking answers to their “clean air” version. I have found little to no information on the pros and cons to their clean air. Please explain, what if any, health concerns […]

What’s with frankincense and myrrh?


We all know gold is pretty valuable stuff. In fact, the price of gold closed at $2066.90 per ounce. Some people wear gold to complement their beauty in form of jewelry. Some investors choose to use gold in their portfolio because its value seems to rise or at least hold its value relative to other prices. We all understand that […]
