Letters To The Editor

Tax cuts working

To the Journal editor: Tax cuts are putting Michigan back to work, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Michigan’s unemployment rate hit 4.1 percent in August-the lowest rate since 2000. And since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Job Act, Michigan has added over 25,000 jobs, a ...

Letters to the Editor

Regarding short-term rentals To the Journal editor: There is controversy about the concept of permissibility of short-term rentals in Chocolay Township. There is a group of people who are vehemently opposed to them, who appear to be on a campaign to prohibit them on the lakeshore, where they ...

Veteran supported

To the Journal editor: Last week, I was eating at Big Boy Restaurant and one guy thanked me for serving my country. I do not know who he was. He paid for my meal. Thanks a lot.

Christ is the one

To the Journal editor: The good news is that even with your unbelief Jesus Christ loves you so much that he died for you. He is ready and waiting for you. He won’t force you or anyone. So it’s up to each of us to choose Him or not. There is no middle ground with Jesus. I’m praying ...

What will happen to old building?

To the Journal editor: The question has been raised recently as to what happens to the present Marquette General Hospital complex once the new structure goes into operation. From the standpoint of a veteran, the conversion to a V.A. facility would be an excellent solution. The present veteran ...

Forest industry seeks common ground

To the Journal editor: In response to recently published news articles opposing SB 396, the forest products industry has been working to ensure that all sides — the County Road Association, county road commissions and the many businesses within our forest products industry — find common ...

Bible is God’s word — period

To the Journal editor: Several individuals have been critical of my letters to the editor. They want to say that the Bible is not the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God. The Bible has been studied by more scholars than any other publication and no one has documented any errors in ...

Arseneau doing great work at Jacobetti

To the Journal editor: The D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans in Marquette is one of the gems of the Upper Peninsula. The care, dedication and concern shown by all the staff for the veterans is fantastic. My family, like many others in the U.P., have had loved ones cared for in this wonderful ...

‘Giant’ included in missive

To the Journal editor: In climate essays, I have written about climate science “giants” like John Tyndall, Milutin Milankovich, Svante Arrhenius and Eunice Foote. I missed one giant and it is an embarrassment to me that I overlooked him. Alexander von Humboldt sits at the top with few ...

Key Kavanaugh question posed

To the Journal editor: After watching the confirmation process of Judge Kavanaugh on TV, I have a bipartisan question to ask your readers and the American public: “Are you comfortable with defining the character of a person by an event that (may or may not) have occurred during his or her ...

Saying goodbye to Marquette

To the Journal editor: Thank you Marquette: While moving away from a community is never easy, for me, this one is particularly difficult. Seven and a half years ago, Marquette welcomed the Andrews with open arms making us feel at home. For this I am grateful. During my time here and ...

Help appreciated

To the Journal editor: I’d like to thank Scott and Sue from Ishpeming for saving the day recently. You gave my kids, David and Theresa, a ride from Green Bay to Marquette. They were stranded in Green Bay. Thanks again for your fantastic act of kindness.

Trump never served in US military

To the Journal editor: After reading Stu Bradley’s parroting of Donald Trump’s self-serving trashing of NFL players who take a knee during the singing of the National Anthem and showing of the flag, I wonder why a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, the former mayor of Marquette and community ...

Diversity needed

To the Journal editor: Mining Journal readers know that we can expect regular opinion pieces from far, far right folks such as Cal Thomas and Michelle Malkin. Predictably, Mr. Thomas bemoans the current controversy regarding the “highly qualified” Supreme Court nominee, and accuses ...

Lawmakers must do better by country

To the Journal editor: I watched the funeral of John McCain. We lost a real friend and supporter of the less fortunate or in other words, those left behind. The Mining Journal editorial mentioned not all enjoying prosperity. Lots of place hiring for work, but part time and low wages. How ...

Letters to the Editor

Age old enigma addressed To the Journal editor: Hey guy, quite an article of commentary on Richard Lehto and the subject at hand: “God’s Will” Rough ‘ground’ to be critical of, being the inward thoughts of another and his expression of a commentary concerning religious beliefs! ...

Column challenged

To the Journal editor: Oh Cal Thomas, (a recent column you wrote) is laughable. Last minute desperate attempt? I’m confused by your objection to a full investigation of a nominee to the most importance judicial position in the nation. What exactly is the Republican Party worried about? Is ...

Letters to the editor

Caution, cooperation always best practice To the Journal editor: Walkers, drivers, bicyclists, please look around you, especially look when you are coming out of driveways, off the beach, off a road crossing or up to an intersection. Look around you for walkers, bicyclists, crossing ...
