‘The price of apathy’
To the editor:
A wise man once said “the price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men”. I do not believe it is necessarily the conscious intent of our (elected) leaders to facilitate this process from a place of critical thought; but ... rather from a place of personal conviction.

IronLine race ‘visionaries’
To the editor:
I am a member of the Iron Range Amateur Radio Club of Iron River and would like to say “kudos” to Josh and Grace Brindle of Iron River.  These two young people were not only visionaries for bringing a dog sled race to our community but have turned that vision into a reality.
The IronLine dogsled race will take place in Iron River on Jan. 18-20. Our club president, Ron Simmons (N8WIS), his wife, Lillian, and I attended a number of meetings with Josh, Grace and the rest of their crew and were amazed at the commitment, time, energy, devotion and hundreds of hours of work this group has generated to turn a vision into a reality.
