If you’re not busy Wednesday, February 17, between the hours of 11:30AM and 5:15 PM, you should stop by the JOCO Center, 805 Wood Street, in Three Rivers. The JOCO Center is sponsoring a blood drive, along with the American Red Cross. Stop in, give some of your blood, have some juice and a cookie, and feel great about what …

Out and About – Week of February 8th

I was walking from the post office to the Commercial-News office the other day, when I realized that as I was walking, I was making sure that I didn’t step on one of the cracks in the sidewalk. After all, if you step on a crack, you’ll break your mother’s back. Since my mother passed away in 1986, I’m pretty …

Out and About – Week of February 1st

About two years ago, I found myself experiencing a sneezing fit every couple of days. It consisted of about eight or nine sneezes in a row. I don’t have any allergies, and could be sitting at home, working in my office, or driving my car, when the sneezes occurred. My wife experiences the same thing. I’d be interested in knowing …

Out and About – Week of January 25th

I was extremely lucky to have a very good assignment when I served in Vietnam in 1966. It was the one conflict when those who served their country were not welcomed home with the kudos they deserved. Since that time, our veterans have been shown the respect and the thanks that those who put their lives on the line deserve …

Out and About – Week of January 18th

Last week’s column focused on those first responders from the Three Rivers Fire Department, Station Number Two. I failed to mention the volunteer firefighters, who are called upon whenever the need arises. An example might be whenever a major accident or fire occurs and the four firefighters on duty are needed to respond, which would leave no one at the …

Out and About – Week of January 11th

Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have at least one hero. Someone that we admire, respect, and hold a little higher than other people we know. I heard a Medal of Honor recipient say that there are people who regard him as a hero because of the act that made it possible for him to receive …

Out and About – Week of January 4th

Welcome to 2016, the start of a new year and an opportunity to start everything out fresh. Let’s try to leave the negative things from last year in the history books and keep a positive attitude to what lies ahead of us. We ended 2015 with a reminder that we are now in the winter season. Gone for a few …

Out and About – Week of December 28th

This will be my final column for 2015. I’m taking the rest of the year off and getting some much-needed rest. My next column will be on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. I’m hoping that everyone had a joyous and memorable Christmas, and that you all received the gifts you asked Santa for. My Christmas was fantastic, but there still isn’t …

Out and About – Week of December 21st

This is a busy week for everyone. Last-minute shoppers have about two days to get those gifts purchased. Not a good time for people with short tempers to do any shopping whatsoever. If you are one of those last-minute shoppers, please have patience with the sales associates who will wait on you. They have been putting in some long hours …

Out and About – Week of December 14th

There was a time in my life when I had some real issues. They troubled me so much, that I decided to seek out a psychologist. I wasn’t on the verge of going crazy, but I just needed to talk to someone I didn’t know, with hopes of getting some much needed advice. The sessions worked, and I feel much …
