To the Editor:
The family of Gordon Switzer wish to extend their heartfelt “thank you” to all who expressed their sympathy and compassion through his passing.
Gordon believed in his faith and love for his family. He was husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He is greatly missed. A special thank you to Pastor Carmen of First United Methodist Church and Compassus Hospice for their concern and care.
A response to past letters
To the Editor:
I am a recent resident but a long time visitor to Gladwin. I enjoy this publication because it is local news, the Editor’s Inbox is local opinion. August 19th’s offerings have prompted my first submission.
First, thank you for not focusing on COVID-19. The word “pandemic” is from “pandemonium” and “epidemic,” neither of which are present locally. A person can get updates on the Michigan and national stats on any TV station.
Secondly, since 1986, taxpayer dollars do not fund operations at the post office. Postage purchased by customers does. And all first class mail (and ballots) are delivered every day. They are currently understaffed, overworked and probably very tired, but I doubt any of them think it’s worth their livelihood to tamper with the election.
And last, but definitely not least, I appreciate the local businesses that have flexible mask policies. They are who I patronize. There is a direct correlation between mask policy and how much time I browse and then how much I spend. Reading recent letters here leads me to believe that lack of oxygen is making people cranky.
Wishing the best to all,
