Thanks for the support
To the editor:
 Thanks to all who supported the Iron County Museum rummage fundraisers in 2011.
 The community response both last spring and this fall was astounding. The numerous volunteers at the museum were in awe of the quantity and quality of the donated treasures dropped off for the fundraising events.

Ordinance discriminates
To the editor:
 I am very concerned about an invasive species ordinance promulgated by Stambaugh Township for Chicaugon Lake in Iron County, Michigan.
 According to the draft, boating permits will now be required in astronomical fees for watercraft using the lake in order to control Eurasian milfoil. They claim this problem cannot be resolved through the DNR/state of Michigan. Instead, Stambaugh Township and the Chicaugon Lake Association people have decided to take it upon themselves to tax the recreating public to force boating fees to satisfy this task.

Meal service reductions
To the editor:
 This is in reference to the proposed reduction in senior meal service by DICSA beginning Oct. 1.
 DICSA Executive Director Jeff Heino states, “The cuts are the result of funding issues. DICSA is facing a $16,884 funding loss for the remainder of fiscal year 2011 and a $12,000 funding loss for the fiscal year 2012. Nothing is really changed from a financial perspective,” he said.

No record of termination
To the editor:
 This is a reply to the letter from DICSA Executive Director Jeffrey Heino in the Daily News (Aug. 12) and the Iron County Reporter (Aug. 17).  I refer specifically to his statement, “First, DICSA is not a unit of county or state government.”

Construction time PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, August 16, 2011 9:48 AM

Just when folks are thinking that summer is coming to an end, the construction season here is just getting under way.
 You’ve seen them—utility workers and civil engineers out and about with their flags and spray paint. Or the neatly stacked lengths of aqua-colored pipe in the field by Remondini Park in Caspian. Trucks hauling the bulldozers and backhoes to their construction destinations.
