Out and About – Week of October 17th

I think we can safely put away our shorts and sandals for another year.

Out and About – Week of October 10

I was fortunate to spend most of last weekend in Mackinaw City. The trip up and back was filled with fall colors.

Out and About – Week of September 12th

This past weekend was a mixture of sadness and celebration. Saturday the funeral for Three Rivers Fire Lt. Erika Bloomfield was held. She fought the bravest battle with cancer, but finally succumbed last week. I’ve heard more than once that she had “spunk”, and during my brief time of working with her, I found that to be true. She didn’t ...
