Overwhelming success
To the editor:
 The Iron County Museum and the members of the Museum Artists Group would like to thank those who assisted in making the Starving Artists Memorial Weekend Show and Sale an overwhelming success.
 Well over 200 people attended to view the work of nearly 20 artists, tour the Museum, view the visiting exhibition from Northern Michigan entitled Stories from the Woods and also see the new paintings and prints at the Lee LeBlanc Gallery that are for sale.

Community deserves the band
To the editor:
 The West Side Veterans Council is a volunteer group of local veterans who volunteer their time without compensation to organize three major events in Iron River every year. The Memorial Day parade, the 4th of July parade and the 4th of July fireworks display. The cost of these events is about $7,000-$8,000 for the cost of fireworks and $500-$800 for float prizes in the 4th of July parade. These funds are raised every year through solicitation.

Rummage sale successful
To the editor:
 A most sincere thank you to each and every person who participated in Iron County’s spring rummage fundraiser. It was very successful. One hundred percent of all proceeds will be used to upgrade museum exhibits.
 We were most fortunate in having so many people coming in almost daily to donate large and small items of rummage. This steady supply of “new stuff” made it possible for shoppers to always find another treasure or two. Thank you to donors and shoppers alike.

Tax cuts hurt seniors
To the editor:
 On April 28, a vote was taken in the Michigan House of Representatives on a bill promoted by Governor Snyder and a host of Republican representatives that slashes business taxes while raising taxes on retirees, the working poor and other individual taxpayers.  The bill passed, on a 56-53 vote. Western U.P representatives Matt Huuki and Ed McBroom both voted in favor of the bill.
 This bill proposes to cut taxes on corporations by $1.73 billion.  How would the state make up this $1.73 billion tax cut for corporations? The money would come from a series of cuts to the poor, senior citizens and pensioners.

Paying for past mistakes
To the editor:
 I have been blessed over the years in my dealings with scouting, 4-H and veteran affairs to meet people from all walks of life.
 A few years ago, I met some school teachers who were part of a state commission that toured Michigan and did a study on consolidating Michigan schools. This study was done in the late 1960s. That’s right, the 1960s. They found out then that the Michigan school system was antiquated, inefficient and bureaucratically top heavy. They said, the “handwriting was on the wall” and declining student enrollment was coming.

Still a sense of community
To the editor:
 The Readers Viewpoint had two interesting letters recently. The letters were written by two community minded people. After reading the letters, I decided to once more express how some of us in Caspian still feel about the closure of our historic Caspian City Hall. The same paper that had the above letters had an advertisement in it advertising our City Hall. Some of us were hoping that maybe someday somehow our City Hall might reopen.

Jobs, yes;
clean water, no
To the editor:
 That was the message I got while listening to State Representative Huuki and State Senator Casperson speak in Iron River on Saturday, April 10.
