Letters to the Editor

Impeachment serves you, not us

Dear Mitch, Nancy, Chuck, Kevin (YOU): Because I believe YOU are intelligent, I can only assume that what YOU are doing is “pure politics” and has nothing to do with We the People (US). YOU talked about the D.C. protestors as obstructing the operation of our government but YOU did the ...

Think about what happened in DC

EDITOR: Let me put up supposition. Let us say that within the last two weeks of my military service, I did an egregious act. Let’s say I burned down my barracks. I do know someone who did exactly that, so this is not too far fetched. In my supposed case, let’s add that someone dies as ...

Seek balanced sources for news

EDITOR: Not succumbing to the mainstream media’s barrage of descriptives such as “baseless,” “false,” “unfounded” and “unproven” when referencing election fraud allegations doesn’t mean a person has “forfeited his credibility” and most certainly isn’t ...

Affidavits aren’t evidence of fraud

Are affidavits evidence and fact or hearsay? The definition of an affidavit is: a sworn statement in writing, made especially under oath or on affirmation before an authorized magistrate or officer. A public notary is a public officer who attests to or certifies writings to make them ...

Markkanen, Bergman duped

EDITOR: With a court record of 1 win and 57 losses at worst or 1 win and 30-plus losses at best (appeals continue to occur), Donald Trump has stretched his claims of election fraud beyond credibility. Unfortunately, those who represent northern Michigan and the Western U.P. — Jack ...

Bergman proves he’s no leader

EDITOR: U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman has let the people of the First Congressional District and the people of the United States down. Bergman has proven what I’ve said for years; he’s an empty suit without the ability to stand up for himself and the country during times of unnecessary turmoil. ...

To GOP: The election is over

One last attempt — probably futile — to bring Republicans to their senses. The election is over, even though your leader refuses to accept it and, like sheep, you blindly follow and you keep sending him money that will end up in his pocket. After countless years of being denied the right ...

Fraud behind election results

I respectfully disagree with the comments made by Jerry Rahoi in his letter to the editor in Monday’s issue of the Daily News, in which he said the “results of the election make perfect sense.” Although I am sure that Mr. Rahoi believes what he is saying is true, how do we explain away ...

Bergman didn’t uphold his oath

EDITOR: U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman, always features his U.S. Marine background in his public persona. U.S. Marines have their famous motto “Semper Fi,” or Always Faithful. With Bergman’s signing on to Trump’s unconstitutional lawsuit to overturn election results, the motto should be ...

Bergman took a stand — for Texas

EDITOR: I think I speak for the majority of Michigan voters when I express gratitude to U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman, for courageously taking a stand and supporting the lawsuit taken to the Supreme Court by the Texas Attorney General aimed at canceling out Michigan votes. Many agree: Elections ...

Election results made sense

There were rumors swirling before the election that the voting machines in Michigan were rigged for Joe Biden. I know of someone locally who intentionally tested this baseless theory and tried to vote twice on one sheet for Joe Biden by checking the Democratic Box, meaning all Democrats on the ...

Against hunting wolves in UP

I urge your readers to contact the Michigan Natural Resources Council and our state legislators and ask them to oppose the opening of any wolf hunting or trapping seasons in Michigan. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration recently removed Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in ...

Plot behind president-elect

EDITOR: Now that the election is past, it’s not hard to figure out why it went the way it has gone. It appears that a member of the “Deep State” and coup trying to remove President Trump from office is now the president-elect. Mr. Joe Biden, former president Barack Obama, the Democratic ...

Public needs virus relief now

This is the third time I have written about the pandemic. On March 30, I stated we were at war with an invisible enemy and what easy basic things we could do to lessen the spread. On Oct. 28, I researched and shared ideas from mental health professionals on what we could do to keep us from ...

Mask: What you can do for your country

I would be more “Loyal to Local” if “local” was more loyal to me. Your Wisconsin town or city is probably like mine — too many businesses thumb their nose at one simple effort to curtail the fastest-spreading, too-often lethal virus that is out of control in our community and country. ...

Bible can provide answers for times

I just read Suzanne Killian’s Senior News/Lifestyles column in Saturday’s edition of The Daily News. Wow! She pretty much covered it all. She wrote about finding gratitude in the midst of a chaotic year. The pandemic, of course, was mentioned, along with most of its accompanying losses, the ...

Still things to be thankful for

At Thanksgiving in these uncertain times, we still have things to be thankful for: freedom of speech, religion and the press; the right to bear arms; and to vote — the list goes on and on. Thankful to Dickinson County Healthcare System for the free frozen Thanksgiving dinners. The year 2020 ...

Great American Outdoors Act

At a time when there is so much negativity in the news, I would like to submit a positive. I want to tell your readers, up front, that I gleaned the following information from an organization, The Nature Conservancy, to which I contribute in a small way each year. The Nature Conservancy is a ...

Government that does not serve us

Totalitarian regimes all have bureaus that intimidate and abuse citizens who oppose the views and activities of the party in power. Nazis had the SS, Russia the KGB and the Democrats have the FBI and the CIA. Notice I did not say America but Democrats. This is where the great divide in our ...

City Park bucks had a horrible, cruel death

EDITOR: This letter is in reference to the two bucks in Iron Mountain’s City Park deer pen that recently died as a result of locking horns and drowning. I am sickened beyond belief of the slow yet brutal, horrific, cruel death that these animals had to go through — and for what? To live ...
