Not all nor everyone has dropped into the cold winter doldrums—in fact, here in Iron County, several events are firing folks up, and promise to provide an injection of fun—and funds into the community.

Unborn mourned
To the editor:
 On Jan. 22, prolife people mourn the loss of more than 54 million unborn children since Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were decided 39 years ago.
 When Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court, abortion was legalized in all 50 states through all nine months of pregnancy. Unborn children for too long have been denied access to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A generation of Americans have had approximately one-fourth of their brothers and sisters destroyed before birth.

Dead of winter

 Doggone it! It seems that winter didn’t forget about us after all. Last week was downright frigid. This week started out downright white. Plenty of snow for everybody.
 For the snowmobilers and skiers and snowshoers and ice anglers and the legion of snowplow pilots among us, not to mention those local merchants who serve visiting winter vacationers, it’s certainly a welcome sight.

Different programs
To the editor:
 The Iron County Authority on Aging would like to inform everyone in Iron County that we have two different agencies here to help the public.
 First, we have Lifeline. This is to help the elderly who stay at home, who need some help in case they become sick, fall or injured. These people probably live alone and are still capable of caring for themselves. This organization is being managed by NorthStar Hospital.

Road worn and weary

You don’t have to drive far around the area to know that our streets, road ways and highways could use some serious attention.
 Every spring we lament the sad conditions of our roads as they shed their icy coatings of snow, ice, salt and sand, cracking in many places from the thawing of the frost underneath.
 If there is any joy to this annual tradition, it is knowing that ensuing potholes will be small enough not to engorge the entire car, hopefully.
 You also don’t have to speculate very long to known that your stretch of road probably won’t be on any municipality’s priority list.
