Wendi’s Word: A toast for Pete

I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw someone I knew tagged in two photos. I naturally “liked” the photos then noticed the comments. I was quickly saddened as I read the comments of condolences – one of Clarkston’s own Pete Vandermeer had passed away. All I can do now is picture him standing in […]

WENDI’S WORD: New beginnings

The torn up wrapping paper is put away. The new toys are scattered throughout the house and a new year is here with the brightness of new beginnings and new resolutions to go with it. I don’t have new goals, just to continue on working on the goals I already have with each week evaluating […]

WENDI’S WORD: Brother before Christmas

It’s been a little over one week since we brought an infant home and it’s going as well as it can with a toddler and almost 2-week-old. Jonathan, who is now a three-year-old or threenager, is pretty good with his little brother. He gives him kisses on the forehead and stops what he is doing […]

Wendi’s Word: By your leave

Wendi’s Word: Words for November

Wendi’s Word: Trick or treat

With a whirl of brisk wind, fall is here and Halloween is quickly approaching. Too quickly as I haven’t officially gotten a costume for my toddler son. We have done a few festive events already. He was Chewbacca for his friend’s Halloween themed birthday party. It came down to we had wookie pajamas and a […]

Wendi’s Word: Hopes for happy retirements

Within the last month, we have seen a few Clarkston legends retire as Voice of the Wolves Dale Ryan and long-time head coach for Clarkston Boys Varsity Basketball Dan Fife stepped down for more time with family, especially the grandkids. Both will truly be missed. Listening to Ryan at home football and basketball games was […]

Wendi’s Word: Barbies find new home

For many, the school bell ringing marked the end of summer, not only in Clarkston but the district I live in. As my son hasn’t turned 3-years-old and isn’t in preschool yet, to me the end of summer isn’t marked by the beginning of school. The beginning of fall sports marks where summer ends as […]

Wendi’s Word: Cleaning up the past
