It will be a perfect opportunity …

Out and About – Week of April 23rd

She was born Alice Suzette Warner. Professionally, she was A. Suzette Warner, but, to her friends, she was just Suzy. Everyone knew her from her years at Three Rivers Community Schools and, when she finally retired, she was known to be the go-to-person when you needed historical information about the high school or anything to do with the city of …

Out and About – Week of April 16th

There is no doubt in my mind that we are living in Michigan. A month ago we experienced temperatures in the eighties. Last week we had below-freezing temps. I can only hope that the frost has not hurt the buds on the fruit trees. Mother Nature can be a major speed bump at times. I’m sure that most of you …

As a patron, it’s always nice to be reminded that your business is appreciated by the local merchants here in Three Rivers.

Out and About – Week of April 2nd

Time does fly by, when you’re having fun. This month, “Out and About” will be six years old, and I’m still finding things to write about, and having fun doing it. This column is not a “one-person” operation. Oh sure, I write it, but my wife, Barb, makes sure that the punctuation and grammar are correct. I did well in …

Out and About – Week of March 26th

The Three Rivers High School production of GREASE closed this past weekend. The cast, crew, and production staff put in a lot of hours to make this show one to remember. One shouldn’t compare it to PHANTOM, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, or SOUTH PACIFIC. Every show that is put on by the students at Three Rivers High School turns out …

Out and About – Week of March 12th

We are now observing Daylight Savings Time. This means that everyone should have set their clocks and watches ahead by one hour effective this past Sunday morning at 2 A.M. We all lost an hour of sleep Saturday night, but that’s what naps are for. The Three Rivers Fire Department wishes to remind everyone that whenever you reset your clocks, …

Out and About – Week of March 5th

I’m a big fan of comfort food. There’s nothing quite like a plate of macaroni and cheese to make one feel quite comfortable. My mom used to make fantastic macaroni and cheese, and it didn’t come out of a box. I don’t know if lasagna is considered comfort food, but I do know that it makes me feel very comfortable …

Out and About – Week of February 27th

Speaking for myself only, the nice thing about having a winter like we’ve experienced so far is that the lack of snow has been appreciated. The unfortunate thing is that, because of no snow, the road sides along our major highways show evidence of too many inconsiderate drivers, who think that this is their own private dumpsite. Unfortunately, there just …
