To the editor:
Not every appearance of impropriety develops into a viable conflict of interest. After all, things often are not what they seem. However, conflicts of interest can and often do develop over time without being obvious or causing an appearance of impropriety, especially when most of us are unsuspecting and wish to remain outside of snarly controversies. It’s probably that not-seeing-the-forest-for-the-trees thing.

 
Bullies not welcome

It was just a few weeks back when a Michigan high school student made national headlines due to a vicious prank by some of her fellow students.
If you remember, she was picked by her classmates to be on her school’s homecoming court. But her fellow classmates were just having a little fun with her.
A sad story that could have been much, much worse if not for the fact that adult members of her community rallied to her defense, and made her day on the homecoming court a testimony to what’s really right with this country.

After school program ends
To the Editor,
The Crystal Falls Contemporary Center deeply regrets that we are no longer able to continue the After School Youth Program as it was originally intended.
The center is currently reviewing possible youth programming options.  The state of Michigan licensing agency is currently reviewing the program. 
An anonymous complaint was filed online stating that it was the belief of the person filing the complaint, that the center needed to obtain a daycare license to operate its after school program.

Landowner insult
To the editor:
Regarding the Iron County Board meeting held on Sept 25, 2012, I would urge every voter to attend an Iron County Board meeting at least once so you can see how we are faced with a group of individuals who do not listen collectively to the voice of the people.
What happened to the board member that you elected from your district? Were they not elected to make up their own minds on issues and work in the best interest of their constituents?

 
October rush

While trying to follow the fuzzy football players on my high-def TV screen Sunday afternoon (only in the U.P.!), thoughts turned to the turning of the seasons.
We just stepped from September to October Monday morning, and the weather appears ready to step with us. Early this week, we are thinking about fall color and light jackets and walking through the leaves.
