Women Who Care


To the 100-plus Women Who Care in Dickinson County for the donation of $19,500 to Family Ties Adult Center in Iron Mountain. Since its inception one year ago, 100-plus Women Who Care in Dickinson County has given more than $85,500 to local 501(c)(3) charities in the area. The next meeting for 100-plus Women Who Care in Dickinson County, which will be the first quarterly meeting for 2014, is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 11, at Pine Grove Country Club, at which time another 501(c)(3) charity/organization will be selected.

The giving continues.


To Michigan lawmakers for inaction on auto insurance reform. The legislative year is growing short, and there is nothing on the horizon.

Michigan has the most expensive auto premiums in the Midwest and eighth-highest in the country.

Michigan is the only state that offers unlimited medical benefits for catastrophic injuries and rehabilitation, currently costing motorists $186 per car per year.

A bill backed by Gov. Rick Snyder would cut insurance premiums by $125 per vehicle in the first year. Lawmakers have been studying the issue for years, while Michigan motorists continue to pay.

Wouldn’t you think that Michigan, home to Motor City, would treat its drivers better?


From: Beverly Hill, Secretary, Bethany Lutheran Church: Thank you for printing the article about the November doings at Bethany Lutheran Church in Amasa. It is much appreciated. We had a successful Hunters Supper and bake sale. Everyone who attended seemed to have a good time. Thanks, again.


From: Bruce LaLiberte, N21060 Wishman Road, Niagara, Wis.: Once again Niagara High School under the direction of Lance Ellis, put on a beautiful Veterans Day program. Special thanks to all participants that made it a huge success. Also, thanks to our District Administration and school board, for preserving our country’s values and traditions, lest our children not be informed who gave them their freedom and why.
