Has nothing to do with the housing industry. That area has always sucked. Homes sell for 30,000 in Hurley, the prices have not moved in 50 years. Hurley is like a 3rd world country. In Ironwood they don't even have running water.

Just to let you know that I have lived here for many years. Get real. We had a major water line break. It made national headlines. It was amazing how everyone in the community pitched in. People from Hurley were there for us 24/7. I wish "Ironwood sucks" really knew what they were talking about.

I moved from Ironwood the year the idiots voted against fixing the school. They voted to build a barn for the gogibic county fair and to give free rides to dead beats on the little blue bus instead! The water lines are all very old and Ironwood has decided to ignore the problem. Ironwood is just a foolish area full of fools!

What a depressing and inaccurate headline. The store did not close and the layoffs did not take place. It was sold to another supermarket chain and everyone retained their jobs.

I would advise the young people from that area to get out! The world is a big place and working at a supermarket is not a real job. Some places even having running water.

I was from Ironwood along time ago. I agree with ironwood sucks. The pipes break because they have not been replaced in the last 100 years. Ironwood needs to get real and start planning on having a future. The best thing for Ironwood is to build a Casino. Ironwood is a crime infested town ever here of meth?

This country needs a good house cleaning. Maybe this recession will clean out the human scum that lives off the decent people.

The Democrats want everyone to live off of government assistant, so that their base can grow. People will be forced into voting for Democrats every election from now on.
