What I did on my Covid vacation

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to sit down and write a Don’t Rush Me column. I penned the last on Monday, March 31 — a couple of days after I was officially laid off from work. Forty-one days. This was basically the first time in my life in which I wasn’t […]

Church column:A vaccine for the “Age of Rage” pandemic

A column by Pastor Jon Grimshaw Lakeview Community Church in Goodrich. Comments or questions: jon.grimshaw@icloud.com This “social distancing” has certainly brought adjustments, and new challenges.
