Rising to occasion
To the editor:
 Nothing defines the character of a small community better than when disaster strikes one of its own. It is there, at such a time, that one can experience the sense of family that exists. Members join together to help because people matter to one another.
 The Chris Skrzyniarz family’s meeting with misfortune happened in August when Chris and Sheri were involved in an accident with their motorcycle. Chris did not survive. Sheri was seriously injured and faces months, possibly years, of rehabilitation. It was a life-altering event for their children.

Buyer beware;voter be wary
To the editor:
 Based on what I understand to be Michigan law where township expenditures are concerned, a township may legally expend public funds for a public purpose only if an interpretation of the state constitution and/or statutes indicates the township is authorized to make that particular expenditure.
 An expenditure that does not meet this standard is illegal and prohibited, even though the purpose seems worthwhile.

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.
