Great performance
To the editor:
 I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the West End Players of Iron County on their excellent performances of Cinderella on Friday, May 4; Sunday, May 6, and Monday, May 7. The performances were very well attended and were held at the Windsor Center, Iron River.

Sharing the road
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 1:26 PM | Updated ( Tuesday, May 22, 2012 1:47 PM )

With warm temperatures arriving, as well as the final weeks of school, area motorists will be sharing the road with other wheeled friends and neighbors.
 Motorcyclists, bicyclists, four-wheeler drivers and dirt bike “racers” are taking to the highways, road shoulders, side streets and alleys, creating hazards and distractions that all motorists need to on the alert for.

Coming soon!

 Spring is here. The dandelions are growing, lawn mowers are buzzing, robins are chirping, and many of you are at work in your gardens, And above it all, along U.S. 2 in Iron River, an occasional roar. A clank. A chunk-chunk-chunk. A bang-bang-bang.
 Hydraulic power at work. Physical force in action. A reinforced steel blade smashing a much-repaired street surface. Solid (if uneven) sidewalks giving way to big bladed buckets.

Kudos to all
To the editor:
 Kudos to all who helped at the Iron County Museum cleanup on April 21.
 Members of the West Iron Key Club, participating museum board members and other volunteers and friends made this a special day for the museum.

Volunteers make it happen

Ah, the month of May… spring is beginning its full bloom and that includes a variety of house chores interrupted by the onset of winter.
   This is also when the planning for summer events gets a little hectic. Many groups and organizations have been planning for this summer’s season back last year, just after wrapping up that season’s event.
  Now, the organizing, planning, tweaking, etc., takes on a serious note, because, let’s face it, time really is of the essence and the room to maneuver is closing in.

Pack 508 says ‘thanks’
To the editor:
 Cub Scout Pack 508 would like to thank all of the people who supported the spaghetti dinner held on April 10 at the United Lutheran Church of Crystal Falls.
 With all of the generosity from the communities of Crystal Falls and Iron River, we will be sending all Cub Scouts who want to go to Camp Hiawatha this August.

The whole truth
To the editor:
 On March 28, 2012, a letter to the editor that I wrote was printed in that issue of the Reporter.
 My subject was trying to get any interested party to run for the County Board in the Aug. 7th primary. I did some research before writing my letter so I was sure that what I was saying was the absolute truth.

Road work will affect you

Whether you’re coming or going through the Iron River area in the next few months, you’ll need to be aware of detours, road closures and traffic flow changes.
 The Michigan Department of Transportation is reconstructing over a half mile of U.S. 2. You’ve probably already noticed the orange markings everywhere along the route.

Excellent care
To the editor:
 We often hear people talking about having to leave the area for health care services. However, I recently had outpatient knee surgery at NorthStar Health System right here in Iron County and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Not at all typical
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 2:40 PM | Updated ( Tuesday, April 24, 2012 1:05 PM )

 Out our window today, it is cloudy and cool. Temperatures are falling, and there’s even a chance for snowflakes later today. It’s a chilly mid-April Monday morning, the kind Iron County has known for years. Pretty typical.
 But Iron County’s weather in March was anything but typical. Like most of the eastern two-thirds of the U.S., the area had its warmest March on record. Even now, midway through April, we are still wondering what to make of it.
