Out and About – Week of September 22nd

We don’t have any trees on our property, but every year I’ve been kept busy raking up leaves and disposing of bushels of walnuts. Our neighbor has trees, and believe it or not, one of them is a walnut tree. The mystery as to where the leaves and walnuts come from is, of course, a no-brainer. We have terrific neighbors, …

Out and About – Week of September 15th

For those interested, a brief update on my health condition. I have been a diabetic for several years and in August 2013, my doctor put me on insulin. He also mentioned that, if I would take better control of my diet and lose some weight, my condition would improve. On September 2, I visited an endocrinologist in Ann Arbor. I …

Out and About – Week of September 8th

A couple of weeks ago, I had my final pool therapy session at Health TRAC, here in Three Rivers.I had nine sessions altogether, which is what my neurosurgeion had prescribed rather than cutting open my back and scraping away on my spine in order to relieve the pressure on my nerves. Anyway, the pool sessions were fantastic, but tiring, and …

Out and About – Week of September 1st

My first September column always gives me the opportunity to make everyone aware of the fact that summer is officially over for the year.

Out and About – Week of August 25th

It’s difficult to watch a newscast without feeling depressed. Hardly a day goes by when you don’t hear of someone being murdered, someone getting killed in a terrible accident, or someone losing their home in a fire. I could go on and on about the bad news that is thrown at us by the media. The truth is that bad …

Out and About – Week of August 18th

A good way to remain sane, might be to meet with a therapist on a regular basis. You know, someone that you can unload your troubles on, or just vent to. Sometimes you might receive some pretty good advice, and sometimes the advice is not worth giving a second thought. I see one of my therapists about every three weeks …

Out and About – Week of August 11th

Last Tuesday, we all had the opportunity to vote on some propositions and several political candidates. To those candidates who won the Primary, congratulations. Remember that in November, we have the privilege of voting on a split ticket. St. Joseph County is primarily a Conservative county, but you’ll never know how many “closet Liberals” there really are. Whether you are …

Out and About – Week of August 4th

Today, August 5th, is Election Day. This is the day we’ve all been waiting for because of two reasons. Number one is that we have the right to go to the polls and cast our vote on a couple of propositions, plus we are able to vote for that person we’d like to have represent us in government. Secondly, we …

Out and About – Week of July 21st

I thought that I was about as good as one can be when it comes to staying current on what’s happening around Three Rivers. I discovered on Friday, July 11, that this was Dan Tomlinson’s final day as Fire Chief. I had a tribute to him ready for this column to be published on Tuesday, July 29. I was under …
