Everyone’s
right to life
To the editor:
 Re: Unborn mourned (Jan. 25 Reader’s Viewpoint)
 The writer is correct. Everyone has a right to life. I have no dispute about that. I do however have a question about the "tools' for abortion that are referred to.
 What are they, who uses them and at what period in the life cycle are they being used? The innuendo was they were barbarous.

Vote ‘no’
To the editor:
 This letter is in regards to the upcoming recall election of Wayne Wales.
 The Statement of Reason on the ballot does not have to be a true statement. The first part of the statement accusing Mr. Wales of being negligent in overseeing the county budget is nonsense. The Finance Committee is comprised of three commissioners and as board chairman, Mr. Wales is not involved in the day-to-day finances of the county. Any financial decision (except for ordering the bills paid) has to be made at a full board meeting and has to be approved by a majority of the board.

Unborn mourned
To the editor:
 On Jan. 22, prolife people mourn the loss of more than 54 million unborn children since Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were decided 39 years ago.
 When Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court, abortion was legalized in all 50 states through all nine months of pregnancy. Unborn children for too long have been denied access to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A generation of Americans have had approximately one-fourth of their brothers and sisters destroyed before birth.

Different programs
To the editor:
 The Iron County Authority on Aging would like to inform everyone in Iron County that we have two different agencies here to help the public.
 First, we have Lifeline. This is to help the elderly who stay at home, who need some help in case they become sick, fall or injured. These people probably live alone and are still capable of caring for themselves. This organization is being managed by NorthStar Hospital.

Land donation wanted
To the editor:
 For some 50 years, there has been talk of a U.P. Michigan Veterans National Memorial Cemetery. On Sept. 18, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars 15th District fall Meeting in South Range, a resolution was passed to work on acquiring a National Memorial Veterans Cemetery in the Upper Peninsula.
 There are 55,000 veterans in the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin. They are under the care of the VA Hospital in Iron Mountain. The Republic or Sagola area would be central to the area.

Support the Rodeo
To the editor:
The rodeo is an annual event that has boosted Iron County’s economy and helped keep us on the map for 45 years. This year, the Rodeo Committee’s raffle is a 45 h Anniversary Limited Edition Rodeo Raffle Calendar. If they are able to sell the maximum of 400 calendars, the rodeo organization will be in the best financial shape they have been in years.
 I am not affiliated with the Rodeo Committee, just a concerned citizen. If the people of Iron County don’t continue to support these events they are not going to be around long. I believe there are about 100 calendars left to sell. I am asking the residents of Iron County to support this event and others like it and keep Iron County on the map.

Bicycle trail update
To the editor:
 At last Thursday's Heritage Trail meeting, it became clear that we are still falling short of the local match for the $1.5 million in grant money we have received.
 For future expansion projects, we will be asking the public to donate money to help cover the local contribution. For now, we are asking you to show your support for this portion of the trail, from the end of the current Apple Blossom Trail to Pentoga Park, by contacting your county commissioner or by attending the county commissioners’ meeting, held at the Courthouse on Tuesday, Dec. 27, at 1:30 p.m.

Inspiring quotations
To the editor:
     As we celebrate this year’s Christmas season, allow me to express my admiration and respect to the people around us who are tirelessly and unselfishly doing service to others without expecting any rewards in return.

No handicap
accessibility
To the editor:
 On Nov. 5, I took my elderly mother to watch her grandson play in the high school football district tournament between Ishpeming and West Iron.
 I however was extremely disappointed and upset at the lack of accommodations for handicapped or elderly people to access the bleachers and football field.
