Out and About – Week of February 7th

Last Wednesday was a day we won’t soon forget. The Three Rivers area, or should I say southwestern lower Michigan, was slammed by Mother Nature. I don’t know who offended her, but the old saying, “Don’t fool with Mother Nature”, made that quote very realistic. When the forecast for the storm first came out, many of us skeptics thought the …

Out and About – Week of January 31st

Welcome to February. This is the shortest month of the year, so this month will pass even faster than the others. Every month has something special going on, and February is no exception. Valentine’s Day, Presidents Day, and nominations for the Lions Club Citizen of the Year are just a few things you’ll want to remember. Valentine’s Day, February 14, …

Out and About – Week of January 17th

We are more than half way through the first month of 2011. This year is already moving a little faster than some of us would like, so I’ll try to give you plenty of advance notice of events coming up, so that I’m not informing you of past events. Confused? I’ll try to type this a little slower. That way …

Out and About – Week of January 10th

Last week, the Three Rivers community lost an icon. Phil Halverson passed away and his funeral was last Saturday, which would have been his 90th birthday. Eulogies aren’t normally a feature of this column, but this is one time I must make an exception. Phil, because of the nature of his business, touched almost every family in the Three Rivers …

Out and About – Week of January 3rd

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2011! This is the time when we go through our filing cabinets, shoe boxes, desk drawers, or wherever you might keep your receipts and other important papers. It’s time to discard old receipts and get your “system” ready for a new year. The receipt you have for shoelaces you purchased last February might be …

Out and About – Week of Dec. 27th

Last Tuesday, December 21, was the first day of winter. It was also the shortest day of the year. I should have mentioned this in last week’s column, but I didn’t realize this fact until last Tuesday, and by that time it was too late. Each week’s column is sitting in someone’s inbox by the Sunday before it appears. Anyway, …
