Wendi’s Word: Mall memories

My travels took me through Waterford Township and past a place I visited a lot during my childhood and into my teenage years. And after years of being boarded up and deteriorating, Summit Place Mall had equipment in the middle and was being torn down. It’s strange looking back now just because I spent close […]

Wendi’s Word: Time to clean

The spring cleaning bug kicked into gear during the weekend as the rain continued to drizzle and the gray clouds hid the sun. Three pieces of furniture were placed into the basement office with a mix of drawers and shelves. I was happy to pull all the boxes out of the corner so they could […]

Wendi’s Word: Book boys

Jonathan grabbed the Go, Dog. Go! book by P.D. Eastman from the pile of books and settled on top of his pillow on his bed. The three-year-old toddler flipped through the pages and read to himself. Some parts it was clear what page he was on as he said “Go, dog. Go!” Or the parts […]

Wendi’s Word: Pieces of Vue

It’s a noise not heard too often, but when you hear it you definitely know what it is – the crunch. I heard the crunch last Thursday as I was heading into the gas station to pre-pay for gas. I closed my eyes for a millisecond and turned around. I knew where the crunch came […]

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 […]

‘Aggressive forever’

BY WENDI REARDON PRICE Clarkston News Sports Writer The Wolves eschewed a chance at a tie and went all in for the win in the final seconds of the State Championship at Ford Field, Saturday, but fell short by a single point. Long-time Head Coach Kurt Richardson wouldn’t have had it any other way. “We […]

Wendi’s Word: By your leave

I have said it before and I will say it again – there’s nothing like being at a Clarkston game. It leaves you with a great feeling – the crowd is cheering and rallying behind their team. The excitement from the fans and the players can be felt throughout the game but even more so […]

Wendi’s Word: Words for November

I couldn’t take the political ads anymore as I sat in the parking lot while our toddler slept in the back seat last Friday at Al Deeby. I pushed play on the CD and didn’t think anything about it again. My husband drove off in my vehicle and I drove off in the fixed lease. […]
