Suicide a very real risk in the Copper Country

November 17, 2011
The Daily Mining Gazette

Two senior citizens once lived in one our little Copper Country towns and traveled together to Houghton every week. One had good eyes but did not drive. Her friend had a car and drivers's license but her eyesight was failing. Although she could not see, every week for several years the licensed driver drove while her friend in the passenger seat gave gentle directions to help the driver know which way to steer and arm-tugs when the driver should apply the brake. It was risky, but they managed to avoid an accident.
