Out and About – Week of March 21st

I couldn’t start this column without first congratulating the Lady Wildcats for giving all of us fans a tremendous season. You played like champions all season long, and Saturday evening you fell to defeat, but you did so like only champions would do. You’ll never forget this season for as long as you live. I’m sure I’m speaking for all ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of March 14th

Congratulations to the Lady Cats for returning home from Gull Lake as Regional Champions. Tonight they travel to Grand Rapids to show Grand Rapids Catholic Central how to play basketball. If they win tonight and again on Thursday, there will be a game Friday evening, which could mean that the box office at Three Rivers High School will be busy, ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of March 7

One of the reasons I enjoy this time of the year is that the weather changes for the better. Oh we still get days when it’s easier to roll over and get more sleep rather than get out of bed and get on with the business of the day, but the days are getting longer, and the sun seems to ...

Out and About – Week of February 28th

Welcome to March 2011. February, which is the shortest month, seemed at times to be the longest, because of the weather. This month we’ll set our clocks ahead one hour, fine tune our figures for the tax man, celebrate St. Patty’s Day, and put away the snow shovels, because we’ll not get any more snow. If you believe that, I ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of February 7th

Last Wednesday was a day we won’t soon forget. The Three Rivers area, or should I say southwestern lower Michigan, was slammed by Mother Nature. I don’t know who offended her, but the old saying, “Don’t fool with Mother Nature”, made that quote very realistic. When the forecast for the storm first came out, many of us skeptics thought the ...

Out and About – Week of January 31st

Welcome to February. This is the shortest month of the year, so this month will pass even faster than the others. Every month has something special going on, and February is no exception. Valentine’s Day, Presidents Day, and nominations for the Lions Club Citizen of the Year are just a few things you’ll want to remember. Valentine’s Day, February 14, ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of January 24th

If you feel that there’s nothing to do here in the Three Rivers area, then it’s not the fault of the Riviera Theatre. It doesn’t matter what time of the day, or the day of the week, the marquee at the theatre is always full of coming attractions. Whether it’s movies, opera, or live performances, the Riviera seems to always ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of January 17th

We are more than half way through the first month of 2011.

I’ll try to type this a little slower. That way ... Read More »
