Out and About for November 11th, 2008

November 11, 2008 by Matt Loker · Comments Off 

From now until the end of the year, we will be either celebrating a holiday or preparing for one. It’s a time for parties and family gatherings, a time for shopping for gifts and for presenting those gifts that you’ve shopped long and hard for. Homemade gifts are less expensive, but they do require some imagination. Ellen Brunner is a person you might want to meet and work with. Ellen is the instructor of a class about innovative art projects using clay. Classes will take place at 10 A.M. on Friday, November 14 and 21 at the Three Rivers Senior Center, 103 S. Douglas, in Three Rivers. The unique thing is that there is no cost to participate. If interested, phone the Senior Center at 279-8083. They’ll register you and provide answers to any questions you might have. Read more

Out and About for November 4th, 2008

If you’re reading this and it’s before 8 P.M. on November 4, and you still haven’t done your civic duty and voted, then I strongly advise you to visit your polling place and cast your vote. If you are thinking that your vote won’t make a difference, you are very wrong. If you decide not to vote, you have no right to complain about the outcome of the election. On a personal note, the person who does win the Presidential election deserves the respect of the office and a chance to prove his worth. The same goes for the other candidates who have stepped forward, willing to serve, if elected to their desired position. Read more

Out and About for October 28th, 2008

A week from today is voting day, November 4. That means that a week from tomorrow you won’t be subjected to the endless ideas, issues and promises that have been flooding the airwaves for the past many months. The issues will more than likely be forgotten and unfortunately, many of the promises will never be kept. The one promise that should be kept is the one you should make to yourself. That promise would be to make an effort to get out and vote. It doesn’t cost you a thing, but it has cost many fine Americans their lives to insure that you have the right to vote. Please don’t let their efforts go to waste. Read more

Out and About for October 21st, 2008

You can tell that fall has definitely arrived, and hopefully, will be here for more than just a couple of weeks. Last weekend was the color tour, and I’m pretty sure the colors are at their peak. At least the ones in our yard and driveway. I’ve found that, if you want the wind to pick up, all you have to do is start raking the lawn. Read more

This Saturday, October 18, is Sweetest Day. Yes, it’s another “Hallmark Day”, but why not have another day when you can let that special someone know just how much she/he means to you? It’s not too late to pick up a nice card or order some flowers. Some of you were smart enough to order roses through the Three Rivers Lions Club. For just $20, ninety-four of you will receive a dozen roses, thanks to someone who thought enough of you to send the very best. Read more

Out and About for October 7th, 2008

October 7, 2008 by Matt Loker · Comments Off 

There’s a saying that’s quite well known. “It’s either feast or famine”. I’m in my third year of putting together this weekly column. There are times when I must really dig to come up with things to include in “Out and About”, and then there are times when I wish I could use more space than is normally available. This is one of those times when you won’t find a paragraph filled with trivia items. Read more
