Why Site Council made changes
To the editor:
First of all, if it weren’t for Wayne Wales, county board chairman, we still wouldn’t have a contract with DICSA concerning the Senior Center building in Iron River. There had been a prior contract, but no one knew about it. Wayne found it and had it legally redrawn. At this point, we are all involved and know what the contract is all about.

‘An incredible local resource’
To the editor:
No one likes to think about death and dying, but it’s something everyone will face eventually. There is an incredible resource right here in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with serious or life-limiting illness.

‘Education cuts affect our future’
To the editor,
On the heels of next week’s presidential elections comes “American Education Week,” Nov. 11-17, celebrating quality public education.  Local educators and school staff take pride in what is accomplished for the children of our communities, given cuts in funding, limited resources and larger class sizes.

To the editor:
Not every appearance of impropriety develops into a viable conflict of interest. After all, things often are not what they seem. However, conflicts of interest can and often do develop over time without being obvious or causing an appearance of impropriety, especially when most of us are unsuspecting and wish to remain outside of snarly controversies. It’s probably that not-seeing-the-forest-for-the-trees thing.

After school program ends
To the Editor,
The Crystal Falls Contemporary Center deeply regrets that we are no longer able to continue the After School Youth Program as it was originally intended.
The center is currently reviewing possible youth programming options.  The state of Michigan licensing agency is currently reviewing the program. 
An anonymous complaint was filed online stating that it was the belief of the person filing the complaint, that the center needed to obtain a daycare license to operate its after school program.

Landowner insult
To the editor:
Regarding the Iron County Board meeting held on Sept 25, 2012, I would urge every voter to attend an Iron County Board meeting at least once so you can see how we are faced with a group of individuals who do not listen collectively to the voice of the people.
What happened to the board member that you elected from your district? Were they not elected to make up their own minds on issues and work in the best interest of their constituents?
