To the Journal editor:
I was reading the news earlier today about Deer Lake in Ishpeming being full of mercury and it is being dealt with, all because of the city being giving $6 million dollars worth of grants, to clean it up with in the next year. How does this work?
I have noticed that a lot of cities around Michigan, not including the Gwinn/K.I. Sawyer area, are getting millions of dollars every year to fix up old buildings, put up new ones or just simply build what they want to build.
I am very irritated knowing that all this is being done else where, except for the K.I. Sawyer/Gwinn/Little Lake areas. My question is why?
Is it because we are not a big enough populated area to have anything built like all the cities around us have had done?
I think it is time that something be done about this once and for all. Not just myself but a lot of other residents of this area of K.I/Gwinn/Little Lake are fed up with all of this. I would like to know where and who I can talk to about this, myself and everyone else wants answers, on why we out here on the base of K.I.Sawyer/ Gwinn and Little Lake have to deal with any of this.
We are trying to ask questions about things wanting to be changed out here, like more stores, more restaurants, 24 hour gas stations, last but not least a recreation facility for the adults and children. We have not recieved any answers to any of the questions asked.
All we want is to be recognized by our goverment and the (county) of Marquette. Why should we have to suffer out here with nothing while everyone else (other cities) get what they want. What about us? What are we going to get?
