Ensure Freight Operations to Island

To the Editor:

I read with great interest the story about the proposed foreclosure on Arnold Transit [August 22]. I hope something can be done to at least help with the heavy freight operations for Mackinac Island, as this could be a serious problem. I might also mention that a couple of years ago, the governing body of the Island was attempting to write their franchise rules that would have surely made Arnold the sole ferry operator. For the Island’s sake, I’m very happy that they were thwarted in that move. We should be reminded to be careful for what we ask for, as we might get it and suffer the consequences.
