Team Work renovation will enhance downtown Lapeer

Downtown Lapeer will be a much nicer looking place once the Lapeer Team Work building gets done. It’s been probably the most blighted of buildings downtown, unfortunately on the block that offers the most visibility too because it’s across from the courthouse. It’s very good news that a state grant is close at hand to start work on the building.

I can’t wait until it’s done.

‘Closer to happening’

Finally, that’s all I have to say. They’ve been talking for years to get the Team Work building cleaned up. It looks like it’s closer to happening, and that’s good for all of downtown (Lapeer) that has had to endure the worn-out building for so long.

Excited for Team Work

Lapeer Team Work does great work. It’s going to be so great when their building is done. It will complete downtown to connect the blocks that have seen new

activity in them.

Slow down and be careful

Our 17-year-old daughter suffered serious injuries last November after she rolled her car after she swerved to avoid hitting a deer on Newark Road. Your editorial (editorial in Oct. 17 edition of The County Press) was dead on. It’s better to take the hit then swerve into oncoming traffic or into a ditch like what happened to our girl.

I hate this time of year around here because there are so many deer on the move. Please slow down and be careful.

‘Don’t get cutesy’ with plans

I read the guest editorial (Oct.

14 edition) by Matt Wandrie (superintendent of Lapeer Community Schools). You say you have a track record of listening to the “stakeholders,” so my advice is not to stray from education. Don’t get cutesy with your building plans or people will never pass your idea next November.

Time for drastic action

It’s time to merge Dryden Schools into Almont, or Imlay City. When the football team has to forfeit games because they don’t have enough kids to field a team it’s time for drastic action. These tiny school districts should become one stronger district.
