Didn’t like tone of political ads

Way too many ads that came out and were broadcast over and over on the radio about a person’s character and motives for getting into politics. No need to have to go low with hurtful words to get a vote. This was truly not showing why to vote for the other party’s candidate ... or who we ...

Traffic issue at Jackson and US 2

I am writing as a concerned citizen regarding the Neu-Cup driveways. This area has always been very congested because a lot of people turn onto Jackson Street and continue on to Breitung Cutoff to go to Kingsford. There are many businesses down Jackson Street, and a lot of semi-truck traffic. ...

Will Social Security increase be coupled with rise in Medicare?

Thursday’s article on the COLA increase in 2019 for Social Security benefits was very thorough, except for one factor — the cost for Medicare benefits. Maybe the government has not released that information yet and it should have been stated in the article. It sounds good to get an ...

A little consideration for the floors when entering a home

A plea to the tradesmen in our area — the carpenters, plumbers, electricians, “handymen,” etc.: Would it be too much to ask you to consider covering your “work boots” with those cloth booties/shoe protectors before entering our homes when you arrive for service? I have all hardwood ...

Questions the Loyal to Local commitment

I keep seeing these “Loyal to Local” signs in the Iron Mountain area and I can’t help but laugh. Funny how these places want me to shop in their businesses but yet when these people go school shopping or Christmas shopping, they usually do it somewhere else, such as Green Bay and ...

Time to end celibacy for priests

I would like to thank the Daily News for the prominent coverage (Aug. 15, edition) given the recent grand jury report in Pennsylvania detailing 300 priests who molested roughly 1,000 children since the 1940’s. This type of occurrence is not new but still deserves to be reported every time ...

Too much time on their hands

Norway, Vulcan sports deserve better coverage

I am tired of seeing Norway-Vulcan sports accomplishments slighted by the Daily News. The major interleague team from Norway’s Peterson Electric won the interleague crown with 13-2 record and they got a 3-by-2 picture on the bottom of the sports page — you can’t even make out the faces ...

Blame misplaced in immigrant separation issue

I wonder how these groups that are so worried about illegal immigrants and the separation from their children get organized across the country on the same day, even in this small town? The law has now been changed, but the protest continues. Put the blame on those who choose to come here ...
