Touching us all in untold ways

Becoming a member to a public radio station isn't required, but when you enjoy the programming and look forward to a favorite time slot every week, you feel somewhat obligated to make that once a year commitment.
If you are a strong supporter of National Public Radio (NPR) you definitely would feel the void should the station no longer exist.
Southwestern Michigan College (SMC) affects us all, even if we haven't gone there. Maybe the nurse who tends to you after your operation did, or the young man waiting on you at the bank.
When the taxes came out each year for SMC, the college is able to continue its mission and help the economy of this area. Classes are by no means reserved for our youth. Those who have been downsized are retrained. Others seeking a new direction have found a multiple of career choices.
Now a vote is being taking on Nov. 8 as to a slight increase and restoration of tax money to the college. Try to think of it as an investment in the future of our area. You may even need the college yourself someday as our ever changing society changes with the time. If not, your children or grandchildren will.
Take time to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and support SMC with a yes vote.
