Saturday, November 3 marks the opening of the Indoor Saline Winter Farmers Market.  Now in its second full season the Winter Market brings a valuable shopping resource for all customers who have enjoyed the Summer Farmers Markets and want to continue to shop all year long…plus those folks who want to shop indoors during the winter.  Saline is fortunate to have a space large enough at Liberty School to house a Winter Market making shopping easy, warm and cozy. 

State Rep. Mark Ouimet, R-Scio Township, defended his record on education Wednesday, saying Michigan schools are in better shape today because of reforms made by Republicans in Lansing. And, Ouimet said, he has the support of local school officials as a result.



Dear Editor:

I have had the honor of serving Saline both as its Mayor and as a Trustee of the Saline Area Schools.  I have closely followed the career of Mayor Driskell as another public servant deeply concerned about quality public education.  Gretchen has worked consistently and with purpose at enhancing the relationship between the community and its schools.  She cares about kids and understands the direct relationship between support for education and a local economy.



I heartily support the election of Brian Marl for Mayor of Saline because he has proven by his words and his actions that he truly understands what it means to be an active part of this community...a community about which he cares deeply.

The Saline High School Commons is a little more comfy this year.

Thanks to a donation of furniture by Resource Office Interiors, the Commons has become a gathering place for students looking for a central studying location.

Earlier this year, Saline High School principal Julie Helber expressed a desire to add to the learning environment for her students and staff. As it turned out, representatives for Resource Office Interiors had already begun discussion with Saline Area Schools district administration about partnering on a project.
