Letters to the Editor

Should anyone dread doctors?

To the editor: Having experienced it so many times before, I knew before the appointment the battle we would have; the battle to be taken seriously and not discounted. The surgeon began by telling us he read my mother’s file and giving an awkward acknowledgement to “all her medical ...

We need to have courage

To the editor: Every Sunday since last summer, a COVID-19 laboratory experiment has been taking place at John MacArthur’s church in California, where approximately 7,000 christians, across all age groups, gather to play musical instruments, sing, and worship God. Masks and social ...

Packers were real NFC champs

To the editor: The NFC Championship game held on Jan. 24, between the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was fraudulent and illegitimate, and American football fans should demand a full investigation into every single point scored. No, I didn’t actually watch the game, so I do ...

Neighborly decency

To the editor: Who ever returned the blue wallet I left in the Walmart parking lot, thank you! According to customer service staff this is very common event. In fact just that day two blue wallets were returned. Also a young gentleman returned $50 he had found in the butter isle. In these ...

Bergman working well

To the editor: All Americans, no matter their lot in life, should have total confidence in the integrity of our voting system and the only way to have total confidence is through total accountability and transparency. I applaud Rep. Jack Bergman’s steadfast work to ensure our elections ...

Bergman not one of us

To the editor: Congressman Jack Bergman has let the people of the 1st District down and the people of the United States. Jack 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 ...

Bergman’s hypocrisy

To the editor: Little more needs to be said about the hypocrisy of the majority of the Republican party.  Still, it’s hard to resist when the hypocrisy is so blatant. Represenative Jack Bergman is one of the Congressional Republicans who chose to believe President Trump’s lies about ...

Looking for affirmation

To the editor: Joe Scarborough said that many of us look to news for affirmation, not information. This struck me, because I’m afraid we only believe what we want to believe, and we only hear what we want to hear.  This could be dangerous, if we accept misinformation and lies to bolster ...

Regarding the manifesto

To the editor: For the record concerning the Baraga County manifesto signed by our local elected officials: MDHHS restrictions related to COVID-19 (based on 1918 Spanish Flu enacted state laws) have not been ruled unconstitutional by the Michigan Supreme Court. And here is what the last ...

Salute to school board members

To the editor: As a local school board member, can you imagine getting an email at 11:30 p.m. on the evening of Thursday March 12 from your district superintendent letting you know your state Governor has just ordered all K-12 school closed beginning Monday, March 16, due to what was to ...

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 ...
