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.

right to life

 Re: Unborn mourned (Jan. 25 Reader’s Viewpoint)
 The writer is correct. Everyone has a right to life. I have no dispute about that. I do however have a question about the "tools' for abortion that are referred to.
 What are they, who uses them and at what period in the life cycle are they being used? The innuendo was they were barbarous. 

Beware of wolves?

Many of our residents were probably very happy to hear that wolves in the western Great Lakes region had been removed from the federal endangered species list.
    And, it seems, just in the nick of time, if persistent rumors heard about the area carry any weight.
    Wolves, like any carnivore, like to bite into any nice warm and tasty morsel suitable for family dining. In our area and that means deer, and we certainly have been seeing quite a few deer around city areas this year.

Vote ‘no’
To the editor:
 This letter is in regards to the upcoming recall election of Wayne Wales.
 The Statement of Reason on the ballot does not have to be a true statement. The first part of the statement accusing Mr. Wales of being negligent in overseeing the county budget is nonsense. The Finance Committee is comprised of three commissioners and as board chairman, Mr. Wales is not involved in the day-to-day finances of the county. Any financial decision (except for ordering the bills paid) has to be made at a full board meeting and has to be approved by a majority of the board.

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.
