What’s on your summer bucket list?

At the start of each summer, I make a list of some of the activities I want to do with the family while the kids are home on summer vacation. Some involve hitting the road, but most of the activities are close to home and I realize more and more how much there is to do in our own backyards. …

Lansing parade is great example of community pride

Last weekend, one of my favorite events of the year took place — the Good Neighbor Day Parade. In my 23 years living in Lansing, I have never missed a parade. Nearly every year I have had an opportunity to be in the parade with an organization or one of the kids’ schools or activities, but I…

Wrigley Field turns 100

Spring is here, although it doesn’t really feel like it yet. It means the return of cooking on the backyard grill, blooming flowers and it also means that baseball season has returned. Anyone who knows me or who has followed this column for sometime knows that I’m a die-hard fan of the Chicago Cubs.

Take opportunities to hear history firsthand

I love history. I love to read about history, I love to write about history and, most of all, I love to hear about history. And for a history buff, there’s nothing better than hearing about historic events from those who lived through them.
