Gearing up for winter
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 3:04 PM | Updated ( Tuesday, October 02, 2012 5:22 PM )


There were no big banner signs, no “stop the presses” moments to be found, but last week’s cold and rain let all of us know summer is “officially” over.

Actually, autumn blew in on Sept. 22 and didn’t relent in letting us know that it was time to stow away the summer gear and get ready for another U.P. winter.

Oh, yes, we all know there will be some of those “Indian summer” days ahead, but the writing is clearly on the walls, or at least the frost is clearly making “dew” with our lawns.

To the editor:

The Caspian-Gaastra Fire Department would like to thank everyone that donated and helped make our raffle a success. We have our raffle once a year and all monies collected go into our equipment fund to purchase equipment that is needed.

Lake milfoil funds
To the editor:
I was amazed by Chicaugon Lake Association Vice President Joe Shubat's comment that out-of-town visitors don't mind a launch ramp fee for milfoil in a recent story.

Come to the meetings

In this week’s Reader’s Viewpoint, a letter was received regarding public participation at our communities’ board and council meetings.
We report on a lot of meetings each month, and, often, it’s the public comment period that makes for the best “story.” It’s a chance for residents to comment, complain and, yes, once in a while even pay a compliment to local government.

New this winter

 Summer in Iron County is filled by events, big and small, taking place every weekend. We know that, since we at the Reporter are scurrying around here and there, trying to get pictures of everything. Some events are well-known, some are more modest, but the warm weather season always has something to do.
 But once summer ends and school starts, the outdoor events fall away like the autumn leaves. Life quickly gets much quieter, and it stays quiet until next summer.
