Out and About – Week of April 8th

“It’s not my job.” This phrase is heard too much lately. I worked with a person who constantly said this. He was lazy and did exactly what was in his job description. Unfortunately, he was promoted, which didn’t say much about my employer. How many times do you walk past a piece of litter and fail to reach down, pick …

Out and About – Week of April 1st

Thirteen can be an unlucky number for some folks, but for me it’s quite lucky. I’ve been pecking away at this column for thirteen years this month. It doesn’t seem that long.

I’d like to share some words of encouragement from Barry Palmer, a Past International President of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service organization. Lion …

Out and About – Week of March 18th

The name of this column is “Out and About”. Its main purpose is to let you know what’s going on in and around the Three Rivers area. I also try to inject a bit of humor, so that by the time you’ve finished reading the column, you’ll feel more positive about what’s going on in this world and won’t feel …

Out and About – Week of March 11th

Is it the law, or is it just simple consideration? What I’m talking about is taking your own food or drink into a public restaurant. I’m pretty sure that the local health department frowns on this practice. As a matter of fact, the owner of the restaurant is subject to a rather hefty fine if they are caught permitting this …
