Caspian votes to move ahead with scrap tire grant

Pucker up!

During the Forest Park High School Homecoming (Sept. 30 to Oct.4), the student council put together a Kiss the Cow fundraiser. Middle school and high school teachers were given a jar to put on their desk, and students put money in the jars throughout the week. The teachers with the most money had to kiss the cow during the pep rally. Band director Norm Vanaman was the popular choice for the high school. Here, he puts on his Chapstick as he gets ready for the big smooch while Lance Mongar and Zach Aberly hold the cow still. (submitted photo)

By Nikki Mitchell CASPIAN—At its regular Oct. 9 meeting, the Caspian City Commission voted to go ahead an application for the scrap tire grant. Commissioners discussed using a local site as the disposal site for the tires. The city will contact Great American Disposal Co., which is the Kingsford tire handler. During the meeting, the board also discussed the ongoing generator issue with city attorney Steve Polich. Polich explained that the city was furnished with a 62-kilowatt generator by the pump house that was fueled by propane. The

metering allows WPPI to provide greater service and collect more accurate data. The council discussed the auditorium floor of the City Hall building. The city is waiting for estimates on new flooring. “We all need to be thinking about what we would like to do with that room,” City Manager Dorothea Olson told the council. “If we are going to use this building, we need to maintain it—especially if we are going to be holding a 100-year celebration here next

inclusion into the DDA zone. It was built, and the Chamber of Commerce moved its office into the RV park building in 1992. “The Iron River RV park is now a point of pride for the city,” said Dawn Pisoni, who made the presentation, “but if it weren’t for Klint’s vision and perseverance, the park would never have happened.” Commissioner Arthur Sacheck made the motion to rename the park in Safford’s honor, and the motion passed unanimously. Pisoni said Safford’s family is willing to pay for an appropriate sign at the RV park. Work on the name change and the new sign will be coordinated with Perry Franzoi, current city manager, and Chamber Manager Bob Black. • A short-term repair project for Blossom Street and Coolidge Avenue is on the way. The council agreed to the $4,696 project that pulverizes the current blacktop and turns it into a gravel-like surface. Craig Richardson of GEI

Consultants said the project will involve Coolidge from Kofmehl Road south to near Fern Street “where the good blacktop starts” and a block of Blossom, between Coolidge and Harding. He said the work should be completed “before deer season.” GEI worked with Northeast Asphalt on the plan. The block of Blossom Street that is currently closed, Richardson pointed out, will remain that way. He also said that GEI will put together a bud package for dealing with drainage issues in the area, the cause of the street problems—otherwise, there’s no point in doing much with the roads. It involves culverts, ditching and grading. Later in the meeting, council members and Franzoi discussed a proposed special election to raise money for road repairs in the city. One mill, Franzoi said, would raise $56,000. He noted that rebuilding one block Continued on page 5

IR tree chosen for state Capitol Medicare staff prepares for new memory care unit

Several staff members of the Iron County Medical Care Facility gather for a photo with Sandra Stimson, executive director of the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, during a recent two-day training course.

IRON RIVER--The Michigan Association of Timbermen has announced that the Michigan Capitol Christmas Tree for 2013 has been chosen. The harvest will take place on Nov. 6 in Iron River at the home of Iron River attorney Jonny Waara, who is quite excited to have his tree selected for the trip to Lansing. This will be the 27th Michigan Capitol Christmas tree that the Michigan Association of Timbermen has harvested in conjunction with the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association. At each year’s harvest, local school children, the local high school band and many neighbors and visitors are on hand to watch and listen as the tree is cut from its stump, lifted by crane to the street and placed on a waiting truck and

trailer. Securing the limbs for the long road east and south is usually a job for four to six men and takes several hours. Once the tree is secured onto a flat-bed trailer pulled by a semi-truck, it is transported immediately to Lansing, where it is lifted upright again in its usual spot in front of the Capitol building. Capitol workers then spend two weeks placing lights on the tree in preparation for the annual Silver Bells festivities to kick off the Christmas season in Lansing on Nov. 22. For further information visit www. More details will be made available on the Timbermen website,, regarding physical location of the tree, exact harvest time, and the estimated crossing time for the tree’s adventure across the Mackinac Bridge.

CRYSTAL FALLS—Over 70 staff members at the Iron County Medical Care Facility recently received special training by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners of New Jersey in order to become certified. The training is an approach to prepare the staff for addressing behavioral issues and needs of residents with dementia. A new memory care unit, the Willow Living Center, should be fully operational and running by early spring. In May 2010, a feasibility study was conducted by Plant and Moran, which substantiated that there was a need for 24 more memory care beds. Once identified, a decision was made to look at redirect-

ing 20 of the current 200 beds to memory care, to make a total of 44 beds available for this population. Once the project was approved by the Iron County Board of Commissioners and the Iron County Human Services Board, further research was done as to how the Medicare can enhance its memory care unit to make it a state of the art program. The new unit will allow for more space and a more conductive environment for the residents to live and the staff to work. It is the goal that all staff working on the memory care unit be certified in dementia care. According to a spokesperson, approach, environment

and understanding are key factors of making a successful memory care unit and that the Iron County Medical Care Facility understands this and is doing everything possible to stand out as a leader in dementia care. During the staff training, Sandra Stimson, executive director of the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, provided a two-day training course, which included “train the trainer” courses for four nurses who were chosen as trainers for new staff. “I felt it was really important that our staff receive specialized training for this unit,” Jill Nocerini, doctor of nursing practice, said. “Instead of Continued on page 5

A proposed amendment to the ordinance makes the description of structures that would block the vision more clear. The amendment includes personal property, vehicles, equipment or machinery that are parked or stored. It also includes alleys in the ordinance instead of only streets.

IR Council will rename RV park to honor Safford By Peter Nocerini IRON RIVER—Since it was developed in the early 1990s, the Iron River RV Park has only had a generic name. Until now. During its regular Oct. 16 meeting, the Iron River City Council approved a request to rename it the Klint Safford Memorial RV Park. Safford was Iron River’s city manager from 1974 to 1980 and served as a commissioner for many years after that, playing an instrumental role in the development of Ice Lake Park, Nanaimo Park, the Downtown Development Authority and off-street parking. In 1990, he proposed development of a former wetlands area into an RV park, helped by a DNR grant and the area’s

WPPI. Crystal Falls is one of the 51 WPPI members. “Our primary goal is to provide low-cost power supply to our members,” Ebert said. “We are in a strong position to meet our members’ needs. We are diversifying with coal, natural gas, wind power and more, while at the same time meeting EPA regulations and keeping costs down.” Ebert also went on to explain that Crystal Falls is one of the six members participating in advanced metering. The advanced

generator is a back-up system in case of a power outage. However, due to the generator issue, the water supply might be in trouble if the generator does not start to pick up the water supply. He said that a larger generator may be brought in to see if it will solve the problem. Polich said it is a situation that has moved along pretty quickly. The blight ordinance was brought up again, and the commission voted to amend the ordinance to change the notice from 30 days to 10 days, which will help create a uniform blight ordinance with

Crystal Theatre: a year-round venue CRYSTAL FALLS—The Crystal Theatre doesn’t close up shop as soon as its “Gem of a Season” is over. They are currently creating their fall and winter line up. “We are a year-round venue and we want people to know that,” explained Crystal Theatre manager Rhonda Wickerham. Coming up this fall on Nov. 9 the theatre is hosting its first annual craft show. It has room for about 20 booths that will be distributed around the theatre, including spots on stage. Vendors are still needed and should contact Rhonda at 906-367-4072 or visit the theatre’s website to print an application. On Dec. 14, the theatre will be presenting Hometown Christmas, which will include a movie and time with Santa Clause. The next day, Dec., 15, it will be hosting a Holiday Extravaganza, which will be a chorus performance and local

talent performances. Forest Park Drama will also be performing sometime this fall at Crystal Theatre. The date is to be determined. In other business, the Crystal Theatre is trying to raise funds to purchase a muchneeded scissor lift. Organizers are calling this the “Give Us A Lift” fundraiser. The theatre has some lights and plaster repairs that are around 30 feet off the ground. In the past they have needed to bring the fire department in to help change light bulbs. With a scissors lift, they would be able to fix these common repairs on their own. The theatre is also looking for volunteers and currently has a youth intern program that high school students can inquire about. The intern program will help students fill the required community service hours for various awards and scholarships. Contact Rhonda to become a volunteer or youth intern.

charter because it has no code enforcement official. Throughout the entire state of Michigan, municipalities and townships are adopting since 2000 what is called the International Property Maintenance Code to deal with the problems of deterioration of buildings and properties. Also the city can deal with the issue of its monetary problems by tightening its purse and stop donating to every organization that hits it up for a donation. Instead of donating to every organization, work with businesses and individuals whom contribute to a fund for these type of donations. The city of Iron River could consider adopting a provision in the Home Rule City Act: Each city in its charter may provide for the borrowing of money on the credit of the city and issuing bonds for the borrowing of money for any purpose within the scope of the powers of the city. These bonds could be used to deal with the deteriorating roads and such. Yes, the money has to be paid back, because there is no such thing as a free lunch.

Drug TakeBack Day set

LANSING—The Michigan State Police (MSP) will partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration and other local law enforcement agencies for National Prescription TakeBack Day to provide a venue for citizens to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. MSP’s 29 posts will participate in the one-day ‘Take-Back’ effort between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, by serving as drop-off points for citizens to discard expired, unused and unwanted medications for destruction. No liquids, inhalers, patches or syringes will be accepted. The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. For Iron County, the local MSP collection site is the Iron Mountain post, located at 1916 N. Stephenson, Iron Mountain, phone 906-774-2122. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Iron River council . . . Continued from page 1 of Third Street cost $60,000. “But that was a total rebuild,� he quickly added. “Removal of concrete, new sand subbase, new gravel, curb and gutter, new sidewalk. “Not all streets are going to need that.� Most streets in the former city of Stambaugh, however, have concrete that would need to be removed before any other work can be done, and that is expensive work. Franzoi said the city needs to come up with criteria to help decide street priorities: factors such as roadbase, surface condition, traffic volume and number of homes on the street.

If a special election for road improvements is held, it would mostly likely take place in the first half of 2014. • No official action was taken, but Mayor Terry Tarsi and council members said the city should start writing citations for property violations at the former Coast to Coast store on Genesee Avenue. For some time, city officials have threatened to fine the building’s owner. So far, no repairs, and Tarsi said he wants the yellow ribbons and city sawhorses that barricaded the sidewalk to be removed. “I see no sense in the barricades any more,â€? he said. “There’s an owner, and he’s responsible for the building.â€?

Crystal Falls . . . Continued from page 1 up. It can’t just hold memorabilia.� At this time, the room is storing historic items. In the past, the room hosted proms and various community events. The council also needed to address a letter that was received by Donna Nocerini concerning Tobin Street. She wrote, “Potholes, lose pavement and rocks randomly pepper this alley. Please, city and township, join forces and fix it. I know working together you can make a difference.� The council determined that this street is a township concern. “I cannot authorize putting city funds into this street,� said Olson. “But I will

continue to do further research on this issue.� The manager Olson also announced that the city-run cable TV system will soon have a new channel where residents can regularly read about city events, announcements and more. Channel 95 will now show these advertisements in a Powerpoint style. Businesses are welcome to purchase ad space on this channel. “This is a public service, and for now it will take the place of the weather crawler,� said Olson. In other business, the council: --Approved a motion to elect three women to serve on the MML board of directors. --Extended the deadline for bids on installing security systems at the power plant and City Hall. --Discussed the city manager’s salary and voted to increase it as well as provide travel expenses. --Agreed that the city manager and Mayor Janet Hendrickson will participate in the Redevelopment Ready Community Program. --Said it is still accepting bids for a digital color copier machine. Bids should be sealed and delivered to City Hall.

He continued that the city needs to start issuing tickets for ordinance violations. “Like it’s supposed to be done. “Nothing’s happened. It’s been sitting there. Every time you go by there, it’s an eyesore.� Franzoi said he and city attorney Mark Tousignant met with the (unnamed) new owner of the building on Oct. 8 about the falling bricks and leaking roof. Since then, the deed for the building has been recorded by the county. The owner, who is a veteran and disabled, said he is waiting for veterans payments so he can start repairs. Franzoi, though, said he thinks it will be very hard for him to get bank financing, and Tousignant said the property will probably be sold at auction at a delinquent tax sale in 2014. (Under the law, he noted, the property itself is responsible for the payment of taxes, not its owner.) “The options are really limited,� Tousignant said. They are: the city becoming the building’s owner—and assume responsibility for it (demolition costs have been estimated at $175,000, and that doesn’t include lead and asbestos abatement); start issuing citations to the owner, who may deed the property to someone else; have the building inspected to officially determine if it is a public hazard; or start a lawsuit to have it condemned. “I wish I had a firm recommendation telling you what to do,� Tousignant said. “There’s no good course to go down.�

Caspian commission . . . Continued from page 1 any decision on the proposed amendments. Polich discussed the city’s need to submit the Title VI non-discrimination plan, which needs to be turned in to the state. He told the commission that he has been working on it and that it has been sent in as a draft to the state and has received preliminary approval. A motion was made to adopt the Title VI non-discrimination plan with City Manager John Stokoski as coordinator. The plan will include information on what Caspian has been doing with the state grant projects the city has done over the last several years. Polich informed the board that during the mid-2000s, the old 424 Caspian dumpsite was traded for property on South Berkshire Road with

Packerland. During that time, the deed was signed, but was never recorded, although Caspian’s records show that the deed was recorded and sent. The register of deeds shows that there is no deed from the city to Packerland for the old dump. He suggested that the board pass a resolution of the property to Packerland and that Stokoski can sign the deed so it can be given to Packerland to be recorded. The board acknowledged that during the week of Oct. 21, R&D Sewer will review the issue of a small sinkhole around a manhole on Lawrence Street. In other news, the commission: --Discussed its pay and decided that it is not necessary for to change its form of pay based on the audit report. --Acknowledged that the

LANSING— Beginning Nov. 3, state park campers who make reservations on the new, improved central reservation system (CRS) website, administered by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), can view one or more photos of each campsite prior to making their reservations. “With the existing reservation system website, customers read descriptive text about the campsite to determine if it’s sunny, shady, flat or elevated,” said Christa Sturtevant-Good, DNR central reservation system liaison. “While text descriptions will remain, altered slightly to an easier-to-read format, campers can also look at between one to three photos of every site, and then visually decide if that campsite has all the features they’re looking for.” The photos will be shown as smaller thumbnail images which, when clicked on, open to a larger size in a new window. “In this way, viewers can see the site up close,” said Anna Sylvester, DNR Parks and Recreation field operations chief for northern Michigan. “Often campers wonder where the fire pit or electrical box is located on the site, but they can’t tell this just by reading text. These features are shown in most photos, allowing campers to determine if the location of campsite elements will meet their camping needs.” The addition of campsite and lodging photos is a customer-driven enhancement made available through the new CRS provider, Camis USA, Inc., which has a call center in Ann Arbor, Mich., and servers in Southfield, Mich. The new reservation system becomes active in early November, with important transitions taking place as the activation approaches. During the transition phase to the new CRS, customers can continue to make reservations

through Oct. 30 using the call center. The phone number, 1-800-44-PARKS, will remain unchanged. Reservations through the website, www., will be possible until Oct. 22 at 8 p.m., when the website will taken down to begin the transition process to the new website. The address will not change. Important transition dates include: -Oct. 22-31: Website reservations cannot be made. The call center will remain active through Oct. 30, taking reservations for dates through Oct. 31, 2013. -Oct. 25: The new reservation website goes live. Although reservations cannot yet be made on the website, customer profiles can be created and viewers can navigate the site to create familiarity. -Oct. 31: Reservations cannot be made. State parks can register walk-ins on a firstcome, first-served basis. -Nov. 1: The new CRS system, both the website and the call center, opens to state park lodging, which typically has a one-year reservation window (camper cabins, mini-cabins, rustic cabins, yurts and modern lodges). Reservations for these facilities can now be made for dates after Oct. 31, 2013. From Nov. 1-2, campsites and slips are not reservable. During this time, campsites and slips are available at the facility on a first-come, first-served basis. -Nov. 3: The system opens to facilities with a six-month reservation window. These include campsites at state parks and select state forest campgrounds and harbor slips. During the transition phase, updates and CRS-related press releases are available by visiting the DNR website www. and clicking on A New and Improved Campground Reservation System is Launching on November 1st.

ties for recreation. Bill O’Neill, chief of the DNR’s Forest Resources Division, said the feedback the department received during the public review period (October 2012 through March 2013) was invaluable to the completion of the plans. “Successful management of Michigan’s state forest land requires discussions with a variety of stakeholders,” said O’Neill, who also serves as state forester. “We received many thoughtful comments and suggestions for improving the plans, both in writing and during meetings with people and organizations around the state, which has resulted in better plans that will help to ensure that our state forests continue to meet Michigan’s recreation, economic and conservation needs now and in the future.” The proposed final plans will be on the agenda (for information only) at the Nov. 7, 2013, meeting of the Natural Resources Commission (NRC), which will be held at the MSU Diagnostic Center, 4125 Beaumont Road, in Lansing. People who have further comments or ideas regarding the plans are encouraged to submit them via email to forestplancomments@michigan. gov or by mail to DNR Forest Resources Division, Forest Planning and Operations Section, P.O. Box 30452, Lansing, MI 48909-7952. Comments will be accepted through Dec. 9, 2013. After the final public review period closes, the plans will be subject to the approval of DNR Director Keith Creagh. The director’s action will be announced at a future NRC meeting. For more information about the meetings or the draft RSFMPs, contact Scott Jones, DNR forest management planning specialist, at 517-335-3330, or visit regionalforestplans.

ORVs with orange flags are hunters with disabilities, operating under the law MARQUETTE—Hunters enjoying Michigan’s deer hunting seasons may spot a fellow hunter on an off-road vehicle with an orange flag. Michigan DNR conservation officers remind everyone that hunters using ORVs with orange flags are operating legally and should not be harassed. A law approved in 2008 allows persons with disabilities who are hunting with proper permits to ride an ORV with an orange flag to identify themselves as a hunter with disabilities. The law is intended to prevent misunderstandings between sportsmen and sportswomen that might arise when confronted with an ORV operating in an area open to hunting. It is important for hunters to understand that under certain circumstances, ORV use is permitted, said Lt. Andrew Turner of the DNR’s Law Enforcement Division. Turner said the law simply allows hunters with disabilities to display an orange flag if they so choose. The law does not require a flag, and there are no size or height requirements in the law for the flag. The DNR chose orange for the flag color because orange flags are readily available, highly visible, inexpensive and commonly used for safety purposes. “It is important to note that the law does not grant any additional privileges, such as crosscountry operation, for ORV operators with disabilities,” Turner said. “It simply allows them to be identified as such.” For more information on hunting opportunities in Michigan, visit the DNR website

Lady Trojans are getting everything—including team intensity—finely tuned for what they think could be a long run in Class D. After the match at West Iron on Oct. 22, the team only has two regular season matches left: Oct. 29 at home against Kingsford and Oct. 31 at Bark River-Harris. The district tournament at EwenTrout Creek is two weeks away. “We’re picking it up a little more on the floor, moving a little bit better,” the coach said after Rapid River. “Our communication still needs improvement, but I’m going to say that every time, no matter how our communication is. “We just have to keep improving. That’s all we can do at this point.” Last week, the team earned 3-0 wins over North Central and Rapid River. FP is now 23-1-5 overall and 11-0 in the Skyline Conferrnce. The match at North Central on Oct. 14 ended with a 3-0 win on scores of 25-14, 25-6, 25-21. It wasn’t close, but Coach Bjork complained

later about the Lady Trojans again playing to the level of their opponents—a lack of intensity. “We had too many unforced errors,” she said later. “We gave away too many points.” She said the team didn’t communicate well and was slow to the ball. “Not a good performance for us,” she said. “We are a better team than we showed on the floor tonight.” Lexi Gussert, 24 kills,2 aces, 2 blocks; Libby Shamion, 5 kills, 2 aces, 2 digs; Adel Isaacson, 3 kills, 2 digs; Kelsi Hendrickson, 3 aces, 2 kills, 2 digs; Michaela Steiro, 3 kills; Maria Stankewicz, 33 assists, 3 digs.

Everything seemed to go much more smoothly at home Oct. 17 against Rapid River, with the Trojans earning a 3-0 win (25-15, 25-12, 25-12). Four-point turns on serve by Libby Shamion and Kelsi Hendrickson got the Lady Trojans going in the first set, but the Rockets stayed close for a while in the second. That changed after Hannah Marinoff took serve at 6-5 and fired in four winners. After the Rockets came back with two, Hendrickson struck for five

more, Kendra Campbell added two and Shamion chipped in with four. That set momentum going FP’s way, and it continued in the third set. Campbell served four early points, Lexi Gussert later added six (including two aces), Michaela Steiro got a rare chance to serve and struck for four more. Meanwhile, Rocket servers could only win more than one point twice in the entire match. The rest of the time, FP quickly won the serve back and then added to its lead. “Libby [Shamion] did a really nice job serving tonight,” said Coach Bjork, “and Lexi also. Once she got on a roll, she did a nice job.” Besides her girls’ serving success, Bjork said, “This is the first match we have had our full roster in over a month. It was nice to have everyone back, and everyone contributed tonight.” Lexi Gussert, 11 kills, 3 aces; Libby Shamion, 4 kills, 2 aces; Kelsi Hendrickson, 3 aces; Maria Stankewicz, 20 assists; Michaela Steiro, 4 aces; Kendra Campbell, 3 kills, 3 aces, 2 blocks; Adel Isaacson, 2 kills.

Trojans swipe win away from Miners CRYSTAL FALLS—Just when the Gogebic Miners thought they could seize momentum early in their game at Forest Park Oct. 18, the Trojans stole it away. Specifically, Austin Snell, who swiped the ball from a Miner running back and ran it back 96 yards for an early touchdown. The Trojans stayed in front the rest of the night, earning a 38-20 win in a possible Division 8 playoff preview at Dick Mettlach Field. The win keeps Forest Park unbeaten, 8-0 overall and 4-0 in the Great Western Conference. They can win the conference crown at Lake Linden Oct. 26. The Miners took the opening kickoff, and two plays later Trent Quade gained 45 yards to the Trojan 25. Paul Buerger’s 15-yard carry gave the Miners 1st and goal at the Trojan 8. The next play got to the 5. Then, on a chilly, drizzly night, lightning struck. Quade took the handoff and attacked the right end.

Snell met him at the 4, worked his arm inside and then dashed down the sideline—ball tucked in his arm—to the end zone, 96 yards away. Lee Graff’s two-point run put the Trojans ahead 8-0. “Huge play,” said Coach Bill Santilli later. “A 12- to 16-point swing.” It was the Trojans’ second strip-TD return play this year. (Lee Graff did it in Bark River.) “I credit the guys—they play heads up.” FP had a chance to score again after Graff recovered a fumble at the Miners 26, but Gogebic’s defense won the ball back on downs. A short punt gave FP another chance near midfield. Graff ran five straight times, the last a 13-yarder for a TD early in the second quarter. QB Connor Kezerle’s pass to Daniel Nocerini put FP ahead 16-0. A smart team, Gogebic didn’t panic and got back into the game with an 80-yard scoring drive. Collin Gagnon ran 32 yards to the Trojan 4, and Buerger ran it over from the 2,

cutting the lead to 16-6. “They had a game plan that they stuck to,” Santilli said. “They knew what to do to attack us.” The Trojans answered with a 62-yard scoring drive, featuring Snell’s 18-yard scamper and 13- and 11-yard Graff carries. Graff scored from the 4, and the Trojans led 24-6 at halftime. The Miners tried to seize momentum back with an onside kick to start the second half—but the ball didn’t go far enough. Forest Park covered 46 yards, including a 12yard Snell effort and Graff’s 24-yarder to the Miners 5. He scored on the next play, and a two-point pass to Billy Ragio put FP ahead 32-6. Gogebic never knuckled under and battled back with a drive that reached the Trojan 15 before running out of gas. Then they forced a Trojan punt. On the next play, QB Ben Zielinski passed 42 yards to Gagnon for a TD. The third quarter ended with Quade scoring the two-pointer, slicing the

Kezerle passed 46 yards to Ragio on the first play after the kickoff, and Graff later scored from the 1, for a 38-14 lead. The Miners covered 63 yards against the Trojan reserves in the final minutes,

Wykons on verge of perfect 9-0 IRON RIVER—Barring a colossal upset by a Class D team that goes in with a 2-6 record, West Iron County will complete its first-ever unbeaten football season this Friday night at Bark River-Harris. Making their regular season finale at Nelson Field Oct. 18, the Wykons scored on their first four possessions on their way to a 35-6 win over Hancock. That improves their record to 8-0 overall. It also wraps up a 6-0 record in the West Pac Conference, the conference title and home field for the playoffs. “We did what we needed to do on senior night and parents night,” Coach Mike Berutti said. “The kids played well early.” Heady stuff! But this is a team that can go far in the playoffs if they keep playing to their potential. They didn’t let down after big wins earlier this year, and they didn’t let down against Hancock after their big Homecoming win over Northland Pines six days earlier. The Wykons went right to work after the kickoff, covering 68 yards on six plays. Alec Schmelebeck ran for 22 yards and later scored from 30 yards out. Ryan Rogers’ kick put the Wykons up 7-0. Brandon Olson’s punt return near midfield set up the second score. Schmelebeck ran for 18, and QB Andrew Peterson’s 9-yard pass to Rogers got the Wykons to the Bulldog

3. Chasz Jonet ran it in from there, making it 14-0. After two scoring drives, the Wykons struck quickly after the next Hancock punt: On first down, Peterson passed to Rogers for 52 yards and six points. With Rogers’ kick, the lead was up to 21-0. Soon Andy Ridolphi recovered a Hancock fumble at the Bulldog 41, and the Wykon offense took the field again. On the first play of the second quarter, Jonet converted a 3rd and 3 play in fine style, busting loose for a 34-yard touchdown. With a 28-0 lead, Berutti used his backup backs for the rest of the half. West Iron drove to the Hancock 1 but lost ground on a penalty, and a field goal try failed. It was still 28-0 at halftime. Hancock only had 44 yards of offense in the first half and punted soon after the second half kickoff. After several running plays, Peterson connected with Rogers again for a 36-yard touchdown pass. The kick put WIC ahead 35-0 and started the running clock. The Wykon defense kept Hancock off the scoreboard until the final play of the game, when Tanner Kearley passed 17 yards to Alex Almquist for a score. In one way, it was a very unusual game for West Iron’s stingy defense—no interceptions (two got dropped). So far, seven different Wykons (Colton Pangrazzi, Rogers, Joe Pisoni, Tylor Capadagli, Nick

Helgemo, Jake Polich, Olson) have totaled 15 interceptions. “Our defensive backs [Pangrazzi, Rogers, Pisoni] are playing real well in the air,” said Berutti. “We’re doing a real nice job with our pass defense—which is going to come into play come playoffs. The teams that get there are going to be able to throw the ball.” The coach also said the Wykons seemed to lose focus at times, especially that drive deep into the Hancock end that

wound up being pointless. “We did a few things that shot ourselves in the foot, and we don’t get into that end zone. “We’ve got to get better at maintaining our focus. As we get going, the games are going to be a lot closer, and we will have to pay more attention to detail.” Berutti also wanted to pass more—passing will be more important in the playoffs. But with the game getting out of hand early, that wasn’t posContinued on page 11

More talent on the way

It’s been a very successful fall for West Iron’s varsity football team, and the WIC youth football teams in the Central U.P. Football League have been just as successful. Both the seventh grade and eighth grade teams recently completed undefeated seasons. It is the third consecutive unbeaten season for the seventh graders. Congratulations to the players for all their hard work and to the volunteer coaches of the Wykon Senior team: Head Coach Karl Seymour, Aaron Risberg, Doug Tomasoski and Jim Pellizzer.

It was his second start--but Gogebic is much tougher than Baraga. “He knew he had to bring his A game,” Santilli said. “I credit him and the team for not putting the ball on the ground”

Powder puff power

Powderpuff football took over Nelson Field Oct. 10, as the West Iron girls took part in a flag football doubleheader, freshmen vs. sophomores and juniors vs. seniors, as part of Homecoming weekend. Here, freshman Paige Hebert catches a pass during her team’s lone scoring drive—the sophs earned a 14-8 win. By the way: While there may not have been any tackling, the intensity of the competition left nobody disappointed.

The defenses ruled during the seniors vs. juniors powderpuff game. Here, the seniors’ Cassi Pellizzer finds a gap in the “Jaguar Juniors” defense and dashes downfield. Later, the juniors’ Alexis Golfis intercepted a pass and ran it back for a touchdown.
