Red Devils no more! The Ironwood, Bessemer and Wakefield-Marinesco School Boards have all agreed to consolidate football into the Gogebic Miners. THe team's colors will be green and white and the team will be a member of the WestPAC Conference. The consolidation follows several years of declining participation in football at both the varsity and J.V. levels. Home games will be rotated between the three high school football fields.

Midgets no more! The Hurley School Board decided that the long-standing mascot, name and logo were pejorative and voted to change the name to the Hurley Northstars. This caused a great deal of rancor within the community and more than one pair of childhood friends have stopped speaking to one another; being on opposite sides of the debate. Nevertheless, the change has been made.

The Viet Nam Era LLW Site

It is sadly discontinued, at least for now. The list-master, Ed. Estola, is working on his commercial pages and can't devote the time to maintain it. We hope that it will resurface soon. There is, however, a very informative site about the history and genealogy of the Gogebic Range. Check out mattsonworks.com


Several of us have created pages on Facebook (www.facebook.com) It's not just for the kids.
