The time for procrastinating is over. Here’s a reminder …

Out and About – Week of December 7th

The Three Rivers Community Players thank those patrons who attended this year’s Make We Merry. The audiences were very receptive, as always, and the performers had as much fun performing as the audience had in watching this annual event.

Out and About – Week of Nov. 30th

This is December 1, and the pressure is off. The 2009 football season for the Three Rivers Wildcats is over, and what a season it was. We went all the way to Ford Field in Detroit. Unfortunately, the Marshall Redhawks also went to Ford Field, and that was the problem. I’m pretty sure we would have done better playing the …

One of the neat things about this “Out and About” column is that it appears in the paper every Tuesday. I’m pretty sure I had a say on this matter, and for that I am thankful. Appearing in the Tuesday edition, it gives readers plenty of time to plan the upcoming weekend, which is when most of the activities happen. …

Out and About – Week of November 9th

It was the perfect time to get Out and About and take it the many events that seem to fill the weekends prior to the holidays. If you were smart, you took the opportunity to finish those outdoor chores that have …

Out and About – Week of November 2nd

Before you start reading this column, if you haven’t voted yet today, put the paper down, get over to the polling place, and cast your vote. If you’re under 18 years of age, keep on reading.

Out and About – Week of October 26th

Last Friday was the final football game of the regular season for our Three Rivers Wildcats. It was a perfect night for football if you were a spectator: Chilly with the chance of rain. If you were a player, it was a night when they separated the men from the boys. The Wildcats won 41-0, which means that playoffs are …

Out and About – Week of October 19th

I’m not an athlete. I’m more of a sports spectator. After all, I am a guy, so I must enjoy at least one or two sports. Anyway, I’ve become a fan of minor league teams, namely the Kalamazoo Kings baseball team and the Kalamazoo K-Wings hockey team. The reason I mention this is that the Kalamazoo K-Wings opened their season …
