Please submit any political letters no later than 5 p.m. Monday, July 23, 2012. Reader supports current Cannon Township Board Dear Editor, I noticed that a group is running against the Cannon Township Board. I looked into why they are running and found that one of them has never attended a board meeting. The person running for supervisor had only been to one before he filed his petition, and that was to introduce himself to the board when he ran for state representative in 2010. The slate also touts their integrity, which is interesting because Mr. Nelson, who is running for trustee, implies that he was endorsed by the Grand Rapids Press in 2010, when he too ran for state representative. The Press endorsed Pete MacGregor—not Mr. Nelson. This is misleading at best, like Mr. Carozza’s lengthy list of endorsements. He doesn’t disclose that only a few of them live in Cannon. That’s integrity? Jon V. Coretti Cannon Township resident Readers appreciate school, arts coverage To the Editor, We want to extend a heartfelt thank-you for your continuing support of school and arts coverage in your paper. For many students in the Rockford Public Schools, music, drama and the visual arts are the primary means of expression, and we are glad that their accomplishments are recognized as just as vital and worthwhile as their on-field classmates’ successes. Specifically, we want to thank Cliff and Nancy Hill, who went above and beyond covering the Rockford High School Women’s Chorus performance at the Michigan Music Conference, and Cindy Cranmer, who stayed for hours with her son at the Rockford Aces impromptu concert and get-together on July 9 to make sure she had the story of their trip to the World Choir Games. Thank you again for your commitment to the arts and to reporting the successes of our students.
