Ted Corombos was honored for the 35 years he has served the city of Iron Mountain. Iron Mountain City Council members recognized the achievements and years of service that Councilman Corombos has given to the city of Iron Mountain. A resolution passed by the council noted that Corombos “typified the outstanding attributes of unsung public service and dedication to the city as a city council person for 11 years, four months; mayor for six years, one month; and a Tax Increment Finance Authority member for 17 years, 10 months.” Corombos is not running for re-election on Nov. 5 for his seat on the council.
Not one person has filed nomination papers to fill Corombos’ seat in the November election. Sure it’s a thankless job, but as Corombos has demonstrated, one person can make a huge impact on their community.
From Diane L. Schabo of Iron Mountain:
Recently my mother had a medical need that resulted in her being admitted to Dickinson County Healthcare Hospital. From the onset at the emergency room to her transfer to the medical floor, we saw nothing but professional care.
When DCH first established the Hospitalist program, I was somewhat uneasy. What kind of care would a patient receive from someone who was not the primary doctor? I’m here to tell you that the Hospitalists are a true asset to our hospital. There is a doctor on the floor 24/7; something lacking from a patient’s primary doctor.
My mother’s prime Hospitalist was Dr. Rajesh Mital. I want to commend him and the nursing staff for the wonderful care and concern shown to my mom. The negative always gets the attention; the positive, not so much. I personally want our residents to know that if the need should ever arise where serious health care issues need to be addressed, DCH’s Hospitalists and nursing staff are top-notch and we are very fortunate to have them available. Don’t let them slip away.
For Kingsford City Council’s back-and-forth on who will represent the city in contract talks with the Public Safety Department. One proposal, that would ban former city of Kingsford employees elected to the city council from city contract negotiations was rejected. Then, council approved a questionable proposal that bans council members who have been investigated or arrested by Kingsford Public Safety Department from negotiating on KPS contracts. Please, let’s keep the “getting even” out of City Hall.
