Position explained
To the editor:
 Last week I wrote a letter about the developments to the main street in the old Stambaugh. This was not to suggest that the city of Iron River had done anything wrong, but it was in frustration of the spending by governments, state and federal on projects, when both state and federal governments are billions in the red.

Let’s say ‘no’
To the editor:
 I would like to inform the citizens of the city of Iron River of the new developments that are about to be passed without a vote or any consideration of the public.

Attendance requested
To the editor:
  The scheduled March 3 Governing Board meeting was changed to March 17.  The reason given was the February financial reports would not be ready by March 3.  The dates and times of the Governing Board changes were posted but the Finance Board meetings were not.

Opportunity for expansion
To the editor:
 The Dickinson-Iron District Health Department has secured grant funding to help expand the existing farmers' markets in Iron County.
 The funding will help facilitate the physical and promotional needs of this program that provides an opportunity for people to purchase fresh, locally grown produce from regional farmers.

Information asked
To the editor:
 Recently ads have been running in this paper regarding the recovery of missing firearms that belong to my brother, Bill Winton. Those guns are part of his collection and are valued at more than $23,000. Some of them are very old and irreplaceable, such as a .303 Savage that belonged to our grandfather. It has a lot of sentimental value for both of us and would not be valued for any other reason than money, by the person holding it.

Seniors not represented
To the editor:
 Attention: District 1 Stambaugh Township, Iron River Township and Gaastra. Your commissioner is not representing the people and particularly the senior citizens in your district.
 The senior programs were set up by the federal government. UPCAP administers them and they contract with DICSA to oversee the nutrition program for the senior citizen centers.
 Our county votes on a millage allocated for the senior citizens. This money has now been distributed by the amount of taxes where there is a center. Fine, but then they took the money where there wasn’t a center and that money from your district was not given to the Iron River center, but divided among all four centers.
 The money should be given to the centers on how many meals served at the centers and meals on wheels delivered, since it is a nutrition program. This is how it turned out cost per meal served by each center.

Support the Windsor Center
To the editor:
 The half mill proposal being asked for by the Windsor Recreation Authority is to continue summer and winter recreation programs previously provided by the West Iron County Public Schools, along with additional winter recreation for youth and adults, and continued operation of the Windsor Auditorium.
 The Windsor Auditorium activities include the West End Players, Rum Rebellion Revue, Open Mic Night, Holiday in Lights activities, plus trade and arts and craft shows. The summer youth recreation programs will continue as in the past. Winter recreation will be offered at the Windsor Center such as youth and men’s basketball programs indoor bocce, women’s exercise programs, winter soccer programs for youth and adults including senior citizens. If anyone or group wish to have programs added, contact Dawn Pisoni who is the day-to-day facilitator of the Windsor Recreation Center.

Stop pushing the millage
To the editor:
 This is in response to the story in Jan. 12, 2011, edition, Stambaugh Township OKs the Windsor Rec Center Millage.
 I don’t know what school Supervisor Eugene Pellizzaro graduated from, but changing the language or running the millage again doesn’t matter because the voters have already made their decision (twice), they do not want the millage.
