SJPD held an indoor yard sale

by Maralyn Fink

The St. Johns Police Department held an indoor garage sale at the former Free Methodist Church purchased earlier by the police. The plan is to move in around late October. The monies from the sale will be put back into the building. They are very excited to move into a space that will be utilized. There are 10 sworn officers along with Chief Kirk.

There was a huge amount of sale items and some very unique ones. Old things and newer things of anything you could think of. I had a great time seeing everything and of course conversing with St Johns finest Boys in Blue.


A Look Back – 1973 Class Reunion

by Barry Clark Bauer

This group of St. Johns High School graduates was celebrating their 50th Class Reunion in 1973. Although some faces look familiar I haven’t found any names yet. Maybe the mural on the wall behind them can tell us where it was held.


Letters – Reader recommends candidate

As someone married to a person who has devoted her entire career to teaching young people, I know quite well how demoralizing it is to watch Michigan schools fall behind.

Our children are the future, and we need to invest in them and in the schools they attend. Kelly Rossman-McKinney gets that. She’s running on a platform of investing in public schools to make them better and to maintain safe learning environments.

I want Rossman-McKinney representing my family in the 24th State Senate District. I’m voting for her in November; and in doing so, I am voting for a better, brighter future for Michigan public education.
