Letter: State school board leader backs McCarvel

Letter: McCarvel will put our well-being first
Last week, the Larkin Township Board was forced to close a Kanaranzi bridge because it wasn't safe to drive on. This couldn't have happened at a worse time. Now farmers in our area will have to drive miles out of the way during the busiest part of the harvest season. This action will...
