For those of you uninformed, the Citizen of the Year banquet will be Tuesday, April 27, at A Place in Time in downtown Three Rivers. The evening’s celebration begins with a social hour at six, …

Out and About – Week of March 29th

Last Thursday we lost Meezer. Meezer was a Siamese cat that my wife had had for about eighteen years. There was a time when she could hold him in one hand. I met Meezer when I started courting my wife. He reminded me of myself when I was younger. He was cross-eyed, he could be referred to as being snaggle-toothed, …

Out and About – Week of March 22

Spring officially arrived last Saturday, March 20. This is according to the calendar I have in my office. I’m pretty sure, however, that spring began about two or three weeks ago. “How do you know this?” you ask. Well, the temperature has been in the fifties, buds are on the trees, the water level in the rivers has risen, and …

Congratulations to the Three Rivers High School basketball teams, both boys and girls. You gave it all you could to make it to the finals and we couldn’t be prouder of your dedication and desire to be state champions. You are all champions in our eyes, and you should be proud of playing with true Wildcat spirit and never letting …

Out and About – Week of March 8th

A reminder from last week’s column concerning Embarr, an acoustic-music ensemble based in Kalamazoo. This Irish-themed group will perform at the Riviera Theatre this Saturday, March 13, at 7 P.M. Embarr’s focus is based upon both traditional and new interpretations of songs and ballads from Ireland, Scotland, and England. All tickets are $5 and are available at the Riviera Theatre …

Out and About – Week of March 1st

I dedicate this week’s column to Susan Lowry. I’m not exactly sure why I’m doing this, except for the fact that I really like the Lowry family and consider Tom Senior, Yvonne, and Tom Junior special friends. Like many others, Barb and I told Tom that if he ever needed anything, just give us a call. I’m sure he is …

Out and About – Week of Feb. 22nd

This is the time of the year that some people dread the most, for the “Tax Man” is wide-awake and on the move. Some will pay additional money by April 15, and some may have already received a tax refund. If you are among the latter, and are having difficulty deciding what to do with this unexpected gift from Uncle …

Out and About – Week of Feb. 15th

Last week we received another dumping of that lovely white stuff we know as snow. In case you haven’t gathered from previous columns of mine, I am not a great lover of snow, but I do fully understand that we do need it for its nitrogen content. Once it’s on the ground and has ceased falling, it does look quite …

Out and About – Week of Feb. 8th

As we get Out and About, we’re always on the lookout for bargains. BOGO, or Buy One, Get One, is a prime example. You simply buy one item at the regular price, and the second item, of same value, is FREE. What a concept! The Three Rivers Lions Club thinks this is a pretty good idea. They thought enough of …

Out and About – Week of Feb. 1st

Welcome to the month of February. My feeling is that we’ve been blessed with a rather mild winter so far. Oh sure, we’ve had a couple wintry storms, but this is Michigan, and we’re in St. Joe County. We miss a lot of bad weather and allow those counties north and west of us handle the really nasty stuff. In …
