Out and About – Week of August 2nd

Welcome to August. This month is “holiday-free”. The only significant thing about this month is that, for students, it’s the last month of vacation. For families, it’s the last chance to take any type of vacation traveling, and for sun worshipers, it’s really the last chance to go to the beach and expose themselves to those dangerous rays from the ...

We have passed the half-way point of summer vacation for the school students.

Out and About – Week of July 5th

The Fourth of July holiday is now in the history books. It was a full weekend to say the least, with pancake breakfasts, parades, fireworks, picnics, and time spent with family and friends.

Out and About – Week of June 28th

This past weekend was most definitely a very busy one. I’m pretty sure that I predicted that in a previous column. Relay for Life, the reception at the Carnegie Center for the Arts, the concert in Lafayette Park, and Covered Bridge Days were just some of the activities that attracted a lot of attention.

Out and About – Week of June 21st

Despite the weather cancellation of the parade, this year’s Water Festival went over very successfully. The weather definitely had an effect on the turnout, but as the old saying goes, “Everyone complains about the weather, but no one can do anything about it.” Three Rivers sustained some damage from the storm, yet everyone seemed to be able to participate and ...

Out and About – Week of June 7th

I apologize if some of you think I’m preaching to the choir, but from what I’ve seen, I feel it’s important enough to mention at this time.
