Out and About for October 28th, 2008

A week from today is voting day, November 4. That means that a week from tomorrow you won’t be subjected to the endless ideas, issues and promises that have been flooding the airwaves for the past many months. The issues will more than likely be forgotten and unfortunately, many of the promises will never be kept. The one promise that …

Out and About for October 21st, 2008

You can tell that fall has definitely arrived, and hopefully, will be here for more than just a couple of weeks. Last weekend was the color tour, and I’m pretty sure the colors are at their peak. At least the ones in our yard and driveway. I’ve found that, if you want the wind to pick up, all you have …

Out and About for October 18th, 2008

This Saturday, October 18, is Sweetest Day. Yes, it’s another “Hallmark Day”, but why not have another day when you can let that special someone know just how much she/he means to you? It’s not too late to pick up a nice card or order some flowers. Some of you were smart enough to order roses through the Three Rivers …

Out and About for October 7th, 2008

There’s a saying that’s quite well known. “It’s either feast or famine”. I’m in my third year of putting together this weekly column. There are times when I must really dig to come up with things to include in “Out and About”, and then there are times when I wish I could use more space than is normally available. This …

Out and About for September 30th, 2008

I was amazed at how many readers thanked me for mentioning the fact that the downtown sidewalks can be a danger zone because of the bicyclists and skateboarders who insist on using the sidewalks as their private “straightaway”. Perhaps one of our city commissioners will bring up this issue at the next City Commission meeting. I’m sure it would be …

Out and About for September 23rd, 2008

The St. Joseph County Grange Fair is now in the history books. Weather was perfect, except for opening day. If anyone reading this had anything to do with making the fair happen, I applaud you for a job well done. Centreville may now return to the quiet village that we’ve all come to love and appreciate.

Out and About for September 16th, 2008

Here is the solution to what the words in last week’s column have in common. Besides having at least two double letters, if you take the first letter of the word, place it at the end of the word, and spell the word in reverse, it will be the same word. Thank you for playing along.

Out and About for September 9th, 2008

Gray’s Community Band is known throughout the area for providing free performances several times during the year. The band is made up of individuals who perform just for the love of music and the enjoyment they receive by playing instruments that they have owned most of their lives. There is no age limit, and the only prerequisite is that you …

Out and About for August 26th, 2008

A friend of mine submits a Letter to the Editor at least once a month. He isn’t upset about anything in particular and rarely complains. He is, however, a very committed and dedicated person to at least two things. One of these is the Lions Club and the other is the donation of blood. He submits his Letter to the …

Out and About for August 19th, 2008

Summertime and festivals go hand-in-hand here in St. Joe County. We start out with Water Festival here in Three Rivers, Covered Bridge Days in Centreville, Riverfest in Mendon and we sort of wrap up summer with HarmonyFest back here in Three Rivers. It’s sort of the “Last Hurrah” before school starts and, for those of you who remember, the last …
