I have received encouragement for this column almost daily from readers like yourselves. Many people have been following what is happening in downtown Three Rivers, and want to believe in a positive change. The revitalization work we are doing is important, and I believe someday soon, its results...
The final school bell has sounded for area school children. Teachers and student alike are ready for a break. Summer should be a time of rest, relaxation and fun for students. However, that doesn’t mean any and all learning has to stop. Back in my day (yes, I just aged myself by saying that), my...
It’s a small world after all, right? The earth is huge. There are over 7.5 billion people living on the earth. The earth is about 24,874 miles tall and 24,860 miles around, so when we were told as a child, teen or young adult, that “it’s a big world out there,” they weren’t kidding. On the flip...
Everyone has his or her share of problems. Sometimes the problems are small and easily solved. Other times they are beyond imagination. We’ve all had problems so difficult that we’d wish we would wake up and discover that it was all just a bad dream. I remember listening to a speaker whose topic...
As I scoured my email the other day, sorting out the spam from the emails that I actually needed to read, one in particular caught my eye. The subject line made me nervous, so I hesitated opening it. I was worried for what this email contained. Anytime I see or hear the word “changes,” it causes...

We are all critics in some way, and there are some people who get paid for their critical expertise. We have restaurant and movie critics, to name just two, but I have never heard of a “Restroom Critic.” Now this would be something I might be successful in pursuing. I’m pretty sure this newspaper...
I can’t remember a February when the weather has been this pleasant, or perhaps I should say weird. We’ve had temperatures in the fifties and sixties, along with temperatures in the twenties and thirties. There have been times when we’ve had nicer weather than those Michiganders who have flown...
2017 has begun with the first step in several gradual increments of the newest gas tax in Michigan. This tax passed in 2015 was designed to be brought in in phases so we as taxpayers aren’t hit all at once. Beginning in 2022 we can expect the tax to be linked to the consumer price index. The good...
To those of you who love someone or anything, I wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day. If you don’t love anything or anyone, I believe you have a problem. To the majority of you, please take a moment and remind those closest to you just how much they mean to you. If you’re a hugger like I am, you...
