  • Gas & Groceries

    Posted by Lori Moore

    Let's see if you can get even closer than Norma Radke of Portage did at our last Gas & Groceries event.  Norma guess was only 27 cents shy of the actual retail value.  I'll be at the West Main GOODWILL today 11-1:00.  You could fill your larder with groceries from Harding's and your gas tank with $50 in gas from West Main Shell.

  • I'm 18 and I Like It..Love it..Like it...

    Posted by Lori Moore

    My baby turned 18 yesterday and was threatening to get pierced and tatooed while I was at work.  She also could have: bought cigarettes, bought a gun, bought lottery tickets, gambled in certain tribal casinos, bought porn, joined the army and gotten married.

    Phew!  When I came home she was only watching "Jersey Shore".  I should consider myself fortunate.

    See you at Hearthside Senior Apartments for another round of Gas & Groceries today @ 11:00.  Take E. Centre to Currier Dr. (Dairy Queen on corner).  We'll have groceries from Harding's.  You guess how much they're worth.  Closest without going over wins not only the groceries but a $50 gas card from West Main Shell.

  • Lost & Found

    Posted by Lori Moore

    I heard from Joe this morning.  He was cleaning out his desk at The City of Parchment and found a couple of long-lost items he would like to reunite with their owners: a class ring from Kalamazoo Central-1987-Pamela G. Miller and a Citizen's watch engraved with the name Daniel Moore 5/5/91.  These items were found in Kindleberger Park.  If you know who they belong to, call Parchment city hall @ 349-3785.

  • Where has summer gone?

    Posted by Lori Moore

    This week is the busiest week of the year in Kalamazoo.  It's also the turning point of the summer.  "Ack!  The Tennis Tournament!  Summer is over!"  "Oh no!  The Fair!  Farewell summer!" "Softball? Sayonara summer."

    In a way, it has seemed really long since this year April was more like May.  All the flowering trees that usually are in full bloom in mid-May were already resplendent at the beginning of April.  That, and the fact that we actually HAD summer weather this year makes it feel like it was a long summer. At the same time, when this week rolls around, I always think about the things I SWORE I'd do this summer.

    I'd better get a move on. Time's a wastin'.
