Issue Date: December 30, 2021

Editor:

As 2021 comes to a close, I would like to offer my "State of the River" address to the people of this Menominee River watershed and beyond.

This past year we have seen Great Lakes Exploration file an application for exclusive Mineral Rights in Holmes and Faithorn townships in Menominee County. The Coalition established a "Call to Action" button on our website for concerned citizens to submit their letters of opposition. There were over 600 letters filed with the Mineral Leases Division of the State of Michigan in opposition, and we are asking for denial of this application.

Aquila Resources also filed an application for exclusive Mineral Rights in Lake and Holmes townships in Menominee County. Once again, the Coalition established a "Call to Action" button on our website to send a letter of opposition to the Mineral Lease Division of the State of Michigan. Well over 200 letters were submitted, asking the Division director to deny this lease application.

In October, Aquila Resources announced the transfer of their interests to Gold Resources of Denver, Colorado. This is the same Aquila Resources that came to this area with promises of high paying jobs, helping local school systems, building better roads; and after spending over 100,000,000 dollars of money they obtained from our friends, relatives, and the good people of Marinette and Menominee Counties, they are all but bankrupt.

My heart goes out to the investors for their losses.

As Gold Resources intends to spend 2022 filing for the necessary permits to continue the Back Forty project, we as the Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River, Inc., stand ready with our staff of Environmental attorneys to STOP any forward progress for a sulfide mine on the Menominee River, with your help and support.

We have an opportunity to submit your letter of support to make the Anaem Omot (The Dog's Belly, Anaem ah ka chiew, 60 Islands) Holmes and Lake Townships, Menominee County, Michigan for consideration for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places by the State Historic Preservation Review Board at their meeting on January 28, 2022. You also can attend with ZOOM. This is the historical Menominee Indian burial grounds, dance rings and gardens.

You may submit your support letter to Todd A. Walsh, National Register Coordinator by email at: WalshT@michigan.gov or by letter to: Michigan State Historic Preservation Office, 300 North Washington Square, Lansing, Michigan 48913.

Protect the Menominee River for your children and grandchildren.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of "Cans for Kids" Cindy Sutek and I wish to extend a special thank you and Merry Christmas to the numerous amount of people who save and share their aluminum cans with "Cans for Kids". A special thank you to the Town of Peshtigo Recycling Center for their willingness to collect cans as well.

Merry Christmas and

Happy Holiday.

Mary E. Lock



Dear Editor:

In regards to last weeks letter to the editor, the deliberate falsehoods and misunderstanding of facts are coming directly from the mayor. I've had the city attorney approach me on two separate occasions telling me that alderman can reach out to him with questions any time. In the Oct. 21 issue of the Peshtigo Times, the mayor stated right now any alderman wanting to call the attorney needs to go through me because he is so far over on his time. This is a prime example of a deliberate falsehood.

The mayor also realizes the need for training on doing guidance for city officials and wants to address it in the coming year. How long has the mayor been involved in city government?

As far as Alderman Katie Berman, she is a great asset and her letter to the editor was nothing but the truth. The people of District 3 should be very proud of the time and preparedness she puts into representing them.

Than you,

District 1 Alderman

Richard H. Berth III
