Letters to the Editor

What is the answer?

To the editor: Our elected officials, Rep. Jack Bergman and State Rep. Greg Markkanen, are representing a segment of their constituent’s concerns regarding possible “voting irregularities” in our November election, but they are not representing me nor a large bulk of their citizens who ...

Send in the clowns

To the editor: Why so much unrest and such turmoil? Why so little trust in one another? Why such widespread angst? Why the quick retreat into warring factions? History teaches us that humans don’t respond well to being rendered increasingly irrelevant. Post WWI German economic despair ...

A matter of censorship

To the editor: It has come to my attention lately that the Daily Mining Gazette editor has declined printing material that questions the current lockdown protocols and coronavirus narrative. This represents the same kind of censorship that has been unleashed on the American public by the ...

Thank you, WUPHD

To the editor: It is with heartfelt gratitude that I write to thank the employees of the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department for the valuable work they provide to our community. I depend on the Health Department to help me, and all the people of our community, in our efforts to avoid ...

The pursuit of happiness

To the editor: This pandemic is challenging us.  For those that are health vulnerable, the prospects of death seem real.  For those that are invested in industries adversely affected by the regulatory changes that have been implemented for public health, the death of a dream or financial ...

Voter fraud

To the editor: First, I want to say a big “thank you” to Naomi Luekema for the well-written letter that was printed about a month ago. In the aftermath of the fraudulent Nov. 3 election, I want to say that I totally agree with Mr. Biden when he said, “We have to put together, I ...

Baraga County has lost its mind

To the editor: The Baraga County Republican Party letter to the editor was predictable political spin. The BCRP praised the radical right-wing, anti-government Baraga County officials for refusing to enforce lawful orders that are designed to slow down the spread of the coronavirus to ...

Bergman must resign

To the editor: I join a growing consensus of voices that are calling for the resignation of our representative to the U.S. House of Representatives, Jack Bergman, for his participation in the storming of the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6. A number of letters to the editor in the Gazette ...

Remembering good times from the past

So what did you do to celebrate the New Year?  Did you ignore the medical experts, had a whopping good time without masks - and came to rue the day? Or did you make sensible promises for the immediate future, like: - I won’t plan any long trips. - I won’t visit high risk friends in ...

Council does not speak for us

To the editor: We, the medical staff of Baraga County Memorial Hospital, bring your attention to a document, titled the Baraga County Manifesto and signed by county officials. We received a concern from a community member who had read the Manifesto. She was worried about whether it would ...

Carrying meaning

To the editor: On Wednesday Night the Baraga County Republican Party unanimously passed a Resolution of Support for the brave actions taken by Baraga County Elected Officials who signed a Manifesto refusing to support enforcement of the COVID-19 orders imposed upon us from the State. At a ...

Manifesto is a disgrace

To the editor: This is in regard to the recent letter sent by Baraga County officials to the State of Michigan—the infamous “enough is enough” letter. They are right that enough is enough. Enough sedition from our local elected officials is enough. I am sick and tired of the poor me ...

Beware the Dominionists

To the editor: We are now in the second surge of the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, the United States, at approximately 3.3%, leads the major countries in the percentage of cases relative to the population. Some other countries with high percentage cases are Brazil (2.3%), France (2.9%), and ...

Speed limit change

To the editor: Years ago, the speed limit on many highways was 65 mph during the day and those same signs changed to 55 mph at night. My question is why not now? What happened to change this? I have talked to our state police and they said our roads were safer when the speed limit was at 65 ...

Let them do their job

To the editor: I assume this phrase sounds pretty familiar: “No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service” — almost! Have you ever wondered why no one gives pushback about the “imposed dress code” for entering a restaurant, shoes and shirt are required to get served. I’ve not seen ...

Tyranny defined

To the editor: The irony of the Baraga County board to use their vow to the Constitution to justify the refusal to follow the rule of law. The Constitution was written because of the failed, bottom up power approach through The Articles of Confederation. Men like Franklin, Washington, ...

Open letter to our leaders

To the editor: As elected officials it is your job to study verifiable information on various issues to make informed decisions on governmental matters that effect your constituents and inform and educate the electorate based upon facts, not feelings or baseless beliefs. To date there is ...

Bergman must resign

To the editor: Our Representative in Congress, Jack Bergman, must resign immediately. His actions on January 6 to perpetuate THE BIG LIE that the election was stolen and his votes to disenfranchise the voters of Arizona and Pennsylvania are a clear violation of his oath of office to uphold ...

Abettors, seditionists

To the editor: Representative Jack Bergman, Representative Lisa McClain, Representative Tim Walberg, The only honorable course of action available to you is to vote to impeach Donald J Trump on Monday and then immediately resign for your complicity in the acts of sedition that occurred in ...

Why I wear a mask

To the editor: I wear a mask because I care about my friends and neighbors. Because I care about my friends and neighbors, I care about their health. Because I care about their health, I don’t want them to get sick or die with Covid 19. And I know the best thing I can do as an individual to ...
