Out and About – Week of May 2nd

I don’t know where the month of April went, but for me, it was gone before I realized it was here. And talk about April showers! I won’t even get into that. Diane, of Mobile Bike Repair, has come up with a great idea. She has organized Saturday morning bike rides. Starting this next Saturday, May 7, and continuing every …

Out and About – Week of April 11th

As you travel the major highways around the county, you’ll probably notice the volunteers out picking up the litter alongside the highway. I’m pretty sure that this last weekend was the first of three times that volunteers pick up the litter each year. They are easy to identify, because they should be wearing iridescent green vests.

You played like champions all season long, and Saturday evening you fell to defeat, but you did so like only champions would do. You’ll never forget this season for as long as you live. I’m sure I’m speaking for all …

Congratulations to the Lady Cats for returning home from Gull Lake as Regional Champions. Tonight they travel to Grand Rapids to show Grand Rapids Catholic Central how to play basketball.

Out and About – Week of March 7

One of the reasons I enjoy this time of the year is that the weather changes for the better. Oh we still get days when it’s easier to roll over and get more sleep rather than get out of bed and get on with the business of the day, but the days are getting longer, and the sun seems to …

Out and About – Week of February 28th

Welcome to March 2011. February, which is the shortest month, seemed at times to be the longest, because of the weather. This month we’ll set our clocks ahead one hour, fine tune our figures for the tax man, celebrate St. Patty’s Day, and put away the snow shovels, because we’ll not get any more snow. If you believe that, I …
