LAPEER COUNTY — For many people Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer. It’s a time to put the boat in the water, fire up the grill and have fun with the family.

There are those, however, who know what it really means. Originally established as Decoration Day, a day to decorate the graves of Civil War dead, it has evolved into Memorial…

PLEASE VOTE by Tim Lintz

PLEASE VOTE

The polls open on May 5th to vote on Proposal 1.  This proposal will determine if the sales tax is raised from 6 cents to 7 cents in Michigan.  If you think this will never pass, don’t count on it.  One of the problems is when people think like that and don’t bother to go to the polls to vote. Those in favor of it passing are counting on it!   The fewer people going to the polls may just pass this bill. 

There are so…

Proposal 1 Road Funding by Larry Leidline

My opinion on the Proposal 1 Road Funding is that it is not a road funding proposal and does not even meet the criteria as a well thought out proposal. It is up for vote because Lansing could not agree on funding and left it up to the voters. Further, it represents a failure of the Governor and Legislature to do the job they were elected to do. Only a slight majority of the $2 Billion it raises goes to road funding, parts of this proposal go to increased educational funding,…

State Rankings for Services Received vs. Taxes Paid - Michigan is 46th.

The Blaze.com has an article ranking states according to the value of services received vs. the taxes paid.  Michigan ranked 46th, meaning there are only four states that are worse than Michigan.  If Proposal 1 passes, Michigan will probably have the disgraceful stigma of being the worst state in the nation for services rendered vs. taxes paid.  

Below…

MICHIGAN IS TAXED ENOUGHT by Carol Brown

March 31, 2015

 

Michigan is Taxed Enough Already

The television advertisements make it sound like Michigan Ballot Prop 1 is Michigan’s last chance to fix our roads. It uses dishonest language to deceive us into thinking the gas tax will be eliminated. It does not say it will be replaced with a higher wholesale tax that Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan estimate will raise gas prices by about 10 cents a gallon, raise state sales tax to 7%, raise vehicle…

Pay More Taxes ? by Tim Linttz

 Pay More Taxes  ?

On May 5th voters will go to the polls to vote on increasing the state sales tax from 6% to 7%. This is being publicized as a way to increase money to fix the roads that are in desperate need of repair. This isn’t as cut and dry as it sounds. In December, the Governor signed road bills from the Legislature that are linked to a package of 11 bills.  These bills go…

educational system. Under the Constitution’s 10th Amendment education should
