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.

‘Remember the Armed Forces’
To the editor:
We are still a “nation at war.” American men and women in uniform are still fighting and dying in Afghanistan.

‘Losing access to public land’
To the editor:
Once again the DNR is being petitioned by a foreign-owned company for direct leases to state-owned mineral rights in Iron County. Since much of this area is National Forest, you do not have to be a resident of Michigan to be considered an interested party.

Why Site Council made changes
To the editor:
First of all, if it weren’t for Wayne Wales, county board chairman, we still wouldn’t have a contract with DICSA concerning the Senior Center building in Iron River. There had been a prior contract, but no one knew about it. Wayne found it and had it legally redrawn. At this point, we are all involved and know what the contract is all about.
