    Pat Krause|Jul 17, 2013

    BESSEMER — The Lakeland Outlaws swept the Gogebic Rangers 7-1 and 7-2 in sultry 90-degree weather and high humidity on Tuesday. Game 1 — Lakeland 7, Gogebic 1 The Gogebic Rangers’ inability to string together hits and score runs was their nemesis again at Massie Field on Tuesday night as they fell to the Lakeland Outlaws 7-1 in the first game of the doubleheader. “It’s the same old, same old,” Gogebic manager Eric Peterson said. “We ran into the same thing last year. We scatter hits and you ha... Full story

    Katie Perttunen|Jul 17, 2013

    BESSEMER— Jane and Mark Bale have been providing foster care for 32 years, in addition to raising two daughters, now aged 30 and 27. This May they took on a new task for the state of Michigan, recruiting and retaining foster families in Gogebic and Ontonagon counties. There are 650,000 children in foster care in the U.S., said Mark Bale. To become foster parents, people must undergo 24 hours of training, as well as have their homes pass inspections by the department of human services for s... Full story

  • Senate steps back from brink in nominations fight

    Jul 17, 2013

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate stepped away from the brink of a meltdown on Tuesday, clearing the way for confirmation of several of President Barack Obama’s nominees long blocked by Republicans, agreeing to quick action on unnamed others and finessing a Democratic threat to overturn historic rules that protect minority-party rights. “Nobody wants to come to Armageddon here,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat whose talks with Arizona Republican John McCain were critical in avoiding a... Full story

  • 'Man of lawlessness' to be revealed before Christ

    Jul 17, 2013

    To the Editor: What’s this? Islamic mosques are exempt from surveillance? Is that insanity or what? Whose idea and decision was that? We the People would like to know, because in his second letter to Christ’s church in Thessalonica, Saul (Paul) and friends informed them that before the coming of our Lord, the man of lawlessness would be revealed (II Thessalonians 2:1-11). Incidentally, that’s a must-read for everyone. This nameless individual is also known as “the” Antichrist. An anti-Christ opposes anything that Yeshua (Jesus) stands fo... Full story

  • Mine opponents should read law, realize potential

    Jul 17, 2013

    To the Editor: I find it very curious that the anti-mining crowd present at the Iron County Comprehensive Planning/Land and Zoning Committee meeting Monday, July 1, mostly came from outside of Iron County. If they are opposed to ferrous mining, they should work at keeping it out of their county. Why the big concern and interest in Iron County? It appears quite dubious to me. Each speaker that stepped up to the podium had to identify himself and state where they were from. Many came from Ashland County, some from Washburn, Bayfield, Sawyer, and... Full story

    Jul 17, 2013

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday. “There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement.
