Veterans Day, originating as Armistice Day in 1918, commemorates the armistice between Germany and the Allied nations, ending World War I, and was set on the 11 hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
 On its first commemoration, Nov. 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.”

Buyer beware;voter be wary
To the editor:
 Based on what I understand to be Michigan law where township expenditures are concerned, a township may legally expend public funds for a public purpose only if an interpretation of the state constitution and/or statutes indicates the township is authorized to make that particular expenditure.
 An expenditure that does not meet this standard is illegal and prohibited, even though the purpose seems worthwhile.

Dinner a success

 We wish to take this opportunity to thank the people of Iron County who attended our fundraiser dinner at the Senior Center in Iron River.

Ready for winter

 We can’t deny facts. We don’t stick our heads in the sand. We know what’s coming.
 But we’re ready for it—and we aren’t only talking about boots or shovels or flu shots or ice melt or warm sweaters or all the ingredients for a big pot of chili.
 Next week, the annual Winter Fun Guide hits the street. Inside word is that the cover will have a big snowflake and scenes of the winter activities that will be sweeping over Iron County in the months to come.

Thanks for the support
To the editor:
 Thanks to all who supported the Iron County Museum rummage fundraisers in 2011.
 The community response both last spring and this fall was astounding. The numerous volunteers at the museum were in awe of the quantity and quality of the donated treasures dropped off for the fundraising events.
