No repeat of Korean War’s casualties

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion A perusal of statistics on the internet reminds us that 54,260 Americans lost their lives in the Korean War. In addition, 415,000 South Koreans were killed and 429,000 were wounded.According to this source, 1.5 million North Korean and Chinese people lost their lives. Why would anyone with an ounce of sense and any sympathy at all for their fellow human beings want to behave in a way that would bring about another catastrophe of this magnitude?FRANCIS R.

Dale E. Lamping

first_imgDale E. Lamping, age 54 of Moores Hill, died Friday, July 17, 2020 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky. Born February 27, 1966 in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, he is the son of Mildred (Nee: Sturwold) and Herbert Lamping. He married Leisa Bruns October 22, 2017 in Moores Hill. He was a meat cutter for the Kroger’s store in Lawrenceburg.Although his family described him as a homebody, Dale had several interests. He often golfed three days a week, although in his case, frequency apparently didn’t translate into skill. Dale also loved weekly poker games and was an avid fisherman, who enjoyed others joining him. Not really a traveler, he did look forward to trips with family or going to visit family and loved his children and grandchildren.He is survived by his wife Leisa; daughter Heather (Tyler) Wilson of Milan; son Brad (Brittney) Lamping of Versailles; step daughters Deborah (Steven) Nies of Harrison, Ohio, Nichole (Dillian) Chatar of Navarre, Florida; step son Jerry (& companion Cynthia) Fryer of Milan; parents Mildred and Herb Lamping of Batesville; sisters Sharon (Nick) Doll and Barb (Terry) Flodder, both of Batesville; brother Brian (Kelly) Lamping of Guilford, Indiana; two grandchildren and three step grandchildren. Visitation for the public is Wednesday, July 22nd, from Noon until 2 p.m. at the funeral home. Social distancing must be observed and the family requests masks be worn. A private service will be held at 2 p.m. for immediate family only, due to the social distancing mandate restrictions. The service will be live streamed for everyone and can be viewed by going to Dale’s obituary page on our website (www.weigelfh.com) and clicking on the link. Following services, Dale’s wishes are to be cremated. The family requests memorials to the Gibault Children’s Services (formerly Gibault School for Boys).last_img read more

“Spoofing” Calls Increase in Northeast Michigan

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisFor many of Northeast Michigan residents, non–stop phone calls from unknown numbers have become the norm just like this one.“Just tell me how much you have in your savings.”Residents have been complaining about local numbers showing up on their caller ID’s causing some to become confused on what to do in that situation. Scammers do have the ability to change phone ID numbers tricking you into making it look like a local number.“I got one at my house that was one of my relatives, and it was not a relative. It had a same last name, and that was about it. But you have to be careful,” MMAP Counselor, Kitty Glomski said.Glomski and the Michigan State Police have one rule they both agree on.“When it’s somebody invading your privacy and trying to scam you, hang up the phone, you don’t have to be nice,” she said. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious New Apocalyptic Board Game Takes Shape from Downtown AlpenaNext MidMichigan Medical Center Alpena Reveals How to Afford Medicationslast_img read more
