Issue Date: February 14, 2019

Dear Editor

It s that time when some of us look back at out calendars and date books at the old year and take some notice of what we did with our time. As I look at our calendar I see entries for nearly every single day, including reminders about our grandchildren's school programs and their sporting events, church activities, band practice, dates with our friends, birthday parties and weddings, and of course doctor appointments. I also notice that in every single month there is several entries that have become ever so meaningful. The entries say "Coalition".

My wife and I started volunteering and supporting the Coalition to Save the Menominee River, Inc. about a year and a half ago after I attended one of their monthly organizational meetings. Not knowing what to expect and a little nervous at that first meeting, I was pleasantly surprised to find a room full of friendly and welcoming ordinary people. I observed a mix of young and old folks from various backgrounds, professions and economic status, but they all shared a common concern and question. How and why was a mining company from a foreign country being permitted to come into their community, a community of U.S. citizens, with plans to wreak havock on the environment, destroy the existing landscape, and threaten all forms of life with their poisonous polutants by situating their operation on one of the greatest freshwater resources in the country? How could this be?

As the meeting progressed, in a smooth and organized fashion, many of those in attendance, in turn, stood up and spoke. I was impressed by how knowledgeable and how well spoken all of the speakers were, but I was even more impressed with their sincerity and their enthusiasm to do something about this invasion. These people get it! Our water needs to be protected! They understand that our most precious resource is water and every single human needs it to survive. These people care enough about it to actually get involved and do something to help!

During the last year and a half the Coalition has held many events in the community to increase the public's knowledge about the Back Forty mining project and making the public aware of many things the mining company would never tell private citizens. The Coalition's mission is to increase awareness of the citizens that we need to protect our freshwater resources from all threats. To that end much work needs to be done.

The Coalition has recently filed two law suits in an effort to stop the mine. It is an expensive ordeal. It's everyone's water and everyone's problem. Everyone can help! Contact jointherivercoalition@gmail.com. Thank you!

Letter to the Editor:

Aquila Resources proposed Back Forty Mine threatens clean water, which is so essential to Twin Cities residents, businesses and industry. Aquila's deceitful spin doctors want you to believe that mining is about to begin, and it's a done deal. Untrue. Its mining permit amendments haven't been approved, and Aquila hasn't met the many conditions of its permits. There are four lawsuits seeking to stop the mine.

A wetlands permit was inexplicably and irresponsibly approved by former Michigan Department of Environmental Quality director Heidi Grether. The DEQ's Water Resources Division recommended that the Wetlands permit be denied. Yet, Grether approved it. Let's hope the recently reorganized agency and its new director, Liesl Eichler Clark, rescind the mining permits. According to its discharge permit, Aquila plans to dump more than a million gallons of sterilized discharge into the Menominee River each day. That's about 2.75 billion gallons over its planned seven-year mine life. Best-case scenario: this discharge would dramatically degrade the river's ecosystem. Worst-case scenario: a failure of Aquila's waste storage with catastrophic effects to the people and river life.

There's a disturbing bottled water reality here: the water supplies of Menominee and Marinette would be threatened by the mine's existence. The more I read Aquila's plans, the more I worry. Michigan legislators have consistently voted on Aquila's behalf while turning their backs on their constituents. Make no mistake about it: Aquila plans to turn and burn after turning a profit. And its toxic mess will be left for us and future generations. There's a silent majority of area residents who don't want the mine but need to step up and help to stop it. You can help prevent the mine by contributing to the legal fees being raised by The Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc. The future health of you and your children may depend on it. 

Jody Korch,

Town of Wagner



Poems sent by

Joyce Bedors of Krakow,

formerly of Peshtigo

It was love that sent our Savior,

To this earth for you and me.

It was love that healed the leper,

and it made the blind man see.

It was love that sent our Savior,

To the Cross of Calvary,

It was love, the love of Jesus,

Oh! What price he paid, for you and me.

It was love that fed five thousand,

It was love that calmed the sea,

It was love that healed the lame man,

It was love that set us free.

It was love that sent our Savior,

To the Cross of Calvary,

With His precious blood He showed us,

His great love, for you and me.



"Labor of Love"

Have you looked at others talents,

And admired their abilities?

And often wondered Lord.

Why couldn't that be me?

But God sees things so differently.

For He looks within the heart,

He knows the secret things you do

That are such a vital part.

He sees the endless meals you cook,

The cheerful way you clean your home.

The Way you cuddle and council your child,

So they don't feel alone.

And Dad, God sees how unselfishly

You toil from morn till night,

Providing for your family,

And Teaching them wrong from right.

And then God sees the searching heart,

Who spends time in His dear Word.

Trying to live a Godly life,

Before those who haven't heard.

And then God sees the true warrior,

Who spends much time in prayer,

Praying and interceding.

A talent so precious and rare.

Now there are just a few talents,

We all can possess a few.

But how we use these talents,

Is completely up to You.





Dear Editor:

Good morning! I would like to thank you for sponsoring the column written by Mr. J. Harpt. I totally enjoy reading of his journeys. I just want to "tag' along with him as he walks through all the interesting places in our country. (He's making by bucket list very long...but exciting). His writing is so complete....my mind's eye is full of images and thoughts. All I can say is "Thank You".

Sincerely,

Diane Smith
