"If I remember correctly the Cancer Center had a tough time with finding a suitable site for the clinic and had problems with zoning. I'm not surprised they did not last very long due to the location they were forced to settle at."

"Wow.  Can you link to the source and perhaps review what other similar cities have done during the same time?  That jump of nearly five million in 2015 to 2016, nearly the full COL budget, is almost unbelievable."

The Cancer of Secretive Public Deals

On November 20, 2017 the West Shore Community College (WSCC) Board of Trustees (BOT) decided to table a motion to purchase the building and property housing the former West Michigan Regional Blood and Cancer Center (at 6050 N. US 31 in Freesoil Township, aerial view below) but you might never have known that, and what happened to table that motion if you lived in Mason County. Oddly enough, a media source outside the county, the Manistee News Advocate, 'broke' the story four days after the…See More

I'm curious about something and have not been able to find an answer. I'm hoping you may know the answer. Is it 'usual practice' to use a person's full name in the body of an op-ed?

What I don't understand about the shop with a cop program is where you come up with the $900 plus amount that is not accounted for. Also why is the same $250 card number on two separate receipts? I'm not very good with math and bookkeeping so I'm curious.
