Out and About – Week of February 18

Hopefully, you’ve noticed a slight change in this column. I’ve tried to make it a little more personal, without telling it all. You won’t find as many listings of coming events. Oh, I’ll mention some of course, but there won’t be as many as before. I’ll do my best to keep this column upbeat and more positive. I’d like it …

Out and About – Week of February 11th

With the weather we’ve been experiencing lately, it’s difficult to even think about this year’s Water Festival. It’s still about five months away, so don’t get out your lawn chairs quite yet. Deb Herring and the Water Festival committee have already scheduled their first meeting. We’ll meet at the Three Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce office in Three Rivers February …

Out and About – Week of February 4th

On Sunday, January 27, the Three Rivers community lost another quiet volunteer. Daisy Wagner passed away. Daisy was a past Lions Club Citizen of the Year. The banquet honoring her was not as well attended as some others, and I’m sure the reason was that she just wasn’t as well-known as many other past recipients. She was rather low-key, and …

Out and About – Week of January 28th

We are no longer experiencing temperatures in the forties and fifties. As a matter of fact, a 35 degree day would be more than welcome by most of us. I haven’t seen too many birds in the area for a week or two, and I can’t remember the last time I was bitten by a mosquito. We have been very …

Out and About – Week of January 21st

We’re more than half way through January, and the winter has not been that bad so far. I’m sure we’ll have our share of stormy weather, but right now, every nice day is a bonus. The snow blower is filled with gasoline and ready for whatever Mother Nature sends our way. I’ve been reminded that we need the snow for …

Out and About – Week of January 14th

Every so often, I receive reassurance that someone actually reads this column. My friend Becky asked me if I would please add one more hint to the topic of safe driving tips. There’s always room for one more, so here you go. In most areas, it is against the law to have anything hanging from your rearview mirror. I found …

Out and About – Week of January 7th

2013 is now one week old, and I’m wondering how many people are holding fast to the resolutions that they made last week. Do people still make them? Usually, resolutions deal with losing weight, or being more mindful as far as taking care of things around the house. I normally don’t make resolutions, but I’ve decided to do so this …

Out and About – Week of December 31st

This will be my last column for 2012. I’m taking the rest of the year off. How many times do you think you’ll hear that today? Everybody wants to be a comedian, including yours truly. I try to be funny, or clever, and this column gives me an outlet to do that sometimes. 2012 has been a pretty good year …

Out and About – Week of December 24th

Congratulations on finding this column. It’s a day earlier than usual, but I did mention this a couple of times. If your garbage is normally picked up on Tuesday, it will be picked up on Wednesday this week and next. This affects those living in the Second District of Three Rivers. Everyone else will have their garbage picked up a …

Out and About – Week of December 17th

With Christmas a week from today, and New Year’s Day the week after that, this column will be published a day earlier for the next two weeks. In other words, there will not be a Commercial-News published the next two Tuesdays. Another item worth noting; For the next two weeks, the only people who will have their garbage picked up …
