Boundaries overstepped
To the editor:
 Anglers and recreational folks beware; another invasive species ordinance has been passed on our local Iron County fisheries.
 Bates Township has now joined partnership with Stambaugh Township and their ordinance to control invasive species such as Chicaugon Lake on waters that belong to us.

With the release of the 1940 U.S. Census, genealogists and family historians will have a heyday finding out, sometimes for the first time about relatives, friends and others from “the greatest generation.”
 When the 120,000 census takers counted 132,164,569 people living in the country in April 1940, notes the msnbc.com story, the information collected included the address, whether the house was owned or rented, value of the home or monthly rent, is it considered a farm, names of adults and children, family relationships, sex, race, age, place of birth citizenship, residence five years earlier, education.

Too valuable
To the editor:
 Some lands are just too valuable to trade and trade is what the Forest Service intends to do.
 The Forest Service lands to be forfeit in the trade contain important public attractions such as Wildcat Falls, rock outcrop features, Scott and Howe Creek, and Hardwood-Hemlock-Cedar Forests with unique and rare old growth characteristics.
 The land is located northwest of Watersmeet, west and northwesterly of County Line Lake.

 OK, OK, let’s not get excited. Calm down. Hold your horses.
 We’re not saying that to you or to some other reader out there. We are passing the message along to all the trees, plans and bushes around the area. Slow down!
 Of course, it’s about the ridiculous warmth Iron County and other parts of the Upper Midwest experienced recently.
