Blood drive a success
To the editor:
 On behalf of the U.P. Regional Blood Center I would like to thank Pearl Ross and Pat Kosiba for hosting a blood drive in the month of January.
 As a result of their efforts, we collected an outstanding 46 pints of blood. These two ladies deserve a big round of applause for helping the U.P. Regional Blood Center save countless lives.

 
It’s an incentive

If the “C” word has you concerned, don’t be. Consolidation is the big buzz word lately, and for good reason. As a component of the Economic Vitality Incentive Program (EVIP), proof of a municipality’s consolidation of services is providing additional revenue sharing for Iron County’s cities and townships.
 You’ve heard a lot about consolidation lately in Iron River and Caspian. You’ve heard about it in the townships, and even in our school districts.

Generosity
To the editor:
 I shall pass through this world but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do, let me do it now: let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again – E’tienne De Grellet

In response
To the editor:
 Iron County residents, in response to a letter written to the editor recently by a county commissioner, I feel it’s my duty to comment.
 According to the Iron County Commissioners “Code of Ethics” No. 3 reads—A board member has the right to express personal opinions and when expressing such opinions in public, the member should clearly state the opinion as personal. This just happens to be the same board member who reminded me a few months ago that I should follow these codes. Does this only apply if you are one of the board members who are not part of the decision making process? Many important issues are being made by a few members and not brought to the full board. I believe the most effective way we can serve the residents of Iron County is by making our decisions in a public forum, where we can ensure our constituents are well informed and we work together as a whole.

 
First step in 2012

 We assume you know that 2012 is going to be an election year. Well, it’s true.
 And we assume you know what it means for us. Among other things, it means that television will be practically unwatchable after mid-summer due to all the campaign ads. Thanks to the Supreme Court’s precedent-setting Citizens United decision, there will be more unregulated campaign ads than ever before.
