To the editor:
Reviewing the Federal Election Committee financial reports filed by Jack Bergman reveals that Corporate PAC donations make up more than half of his contributions and more than three-quarters of the Corporate PAC’s are from outside Michigan!

To the editor:
Two letters to the editor in the Sept. 6, 2018 edition of The Leelanau Enterprise require a response. Both letters seem to suggest that any citizen who supports (or politician who is supported by) President Trump lacks virtue and is morally corrupt.
To the editor:
Jack O’Malley has been a voice on the radio for the last 30 years. You could always count on him to be a straight shooter no matter what issue was raised on his show. He always asked the tough questions, and cut the flowery answers down to the hard facts. I know I can count on him to do the same down in Lansing.
To the editor:
After eight years of Republican control of Michigan’s government, how do Michigan’s schools measure up? Not well.
The political landscape is strewn with political losers who are left to battle two illnesses.
First they are trying to heal the wounds inflicted by their opponents. And secondly, they battle a self-inflicted disease called second guessing.
The symptoms of which are clear. They mutter, “If only I had done this or that I would have won.”
Throughout the country, most children are starting a new academic year. Teachers are sending out their lists of required readings, and parents are beginning to gather books.
How do you know summer is over? In Leelanau County, you don’t need a calendar. Just observe the clues of autumn:
• Roadside farm stands switch from cherries to apples, with tomatoes serving as a bridge for locally grown goodies.
• Candidates stop marching in parades and eating chicken at church festivals, and end up at your front door.
Our beautiful national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, still gives me goose bumps. Francis Scott Key penned these lyrics in 1814 during the battle of Fort M’Henry. Lyric lines such as “and the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there” are powerful and moving.
School bells are ringing and there is homework to be done.
The feeling of not being in a room taking down notes and looking at a white board still hasn’t set for me. As a recent graduate of Central Michigan University, it is a weird feeling to not be back on campus at this time of the year. It was something I always looked forward to during the dog days of summer.
Two thoughts on the final leg of the Heritage Trail.
First, we’re glad that acrimony over the trail’s route is waning.
And second, it’s going to be expensive. Guess that’s why they’re not building new roads.
Michigan law requires local governments to inform their citizenry through public notices published in newspapers of record for their communities. These notices provide residents with an easy path for following the work of their elected officials. Public notices for Leelanau County can also be accessed online at Leelanaunews.com.
