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...
For some people it comes easy. For others, not so much. Some people say it way too easily while others refuse. There are people who look at it as a sign of weakness while others just feel there is no need for it. And yet, there are even those who are afraid to say it for whatever the reason. I’m...
Honor is one of the nicest things to have, and it’s also a very nice thing to share. “It’s an honor to do this for you” is a very nice thing to say to someone. Unfortunately, this act is not done enough. The American Legion Honor Team, from Hice-Shutes Post 170, performs an act of honor every time...
I am sorry to admit that I am not much of a reader and never have been. I’ve always read just enough to get by. If I do read a book, it’s usually a biography. My problem is that I have difficulty concentrating on just one thing at a time. As a student, I could not have any distractions, such as...
The Democratic Party has a serious problem, and the name of that problem is identity politics. Ever since Donald Trump’s surprise win on Nov. 8, identity politics has been a hot topic of discussion in the media. Many conservative analysts blame identity politics for Hillary Clinton’s surprise loss...
As a toddler, taking a nap was something I didn’t enjoy doing. At this time in my life, taking an afternoon nap has become quite enjoyable. It has become something that is also quite necessary, unless I want to find myself falling asleep during Jeopardy. I’m an early riser, even without an alarm...
We received our first measurable snowfall on Sunday, Dec. 4. Channel 3 News said that the snow would start to fall around 1 p.m. that afternoon, and for once, their forecast was right on the money. We arranged our Sunday plans so that by 1:30 p.m. we were secured inside the house, the cars were...
