Wendi Word’s: Harry cast a spell

The magical world of Harry Potter and Hogwarts is on my mind as I type this week’s column as it is the day Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone printed for the first time on June 26, 1997. Here in America we would come to know it as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and […]

Inspiring honorees

It was inspiring to attend the 32nd Clarkston Community Awards a few weeks ago with the people who were honored as well as why they were honored. A few of the honorees, I knew from covering things throughout the community over the last nine years, like Addison Gale, a Clarkston High School student who pops […]

Wendi’s Word: Countdown

It’s coming close to the end of the school year. Within a few weeks seniors at Clarkston High School will be taking their final exams and walking the school for one final time with friends and family members lining the hallways. Donned in their caps and gowns the tradition will get them ready for graduation […]

Wendi’s Word: Magic moment on the court as Wolves win

I will admit it – I did get a little misty-eyed as the Clarkston Boys Varsity Basketball team ran onto the court after the championship game on Saturday. I was swept in the moment, which was a long time coming for the Wolves, as under the bright lights of the Breslin Center they achieved a […]

Wendi’s Word: Food reflections

I have been reflecting a lot on my eating habits recently. It comes from having a 15-month-old son who is eating more and more of what we eat every day and being on Shape ReClaimed again through Nuview Nutrition. I have always had a problem with portion control. I love to eat. I love food. […]

Spring startover: a column by Wendi Reardon Price

It happened. I had hoped and prayed to the pizza gods someone would drop off a pie topped with the perfect blend of cheese, sauce and pepperoni to our office downtown. It happened and it occurred one week too late for me. Our Assistant Publisher Don Rush took advantage of the buy one, get one […]

Cold comes knocking

It was so close, but so far away. I could see it. I could feel it in my hands. I just couldn’t get to it. I mentally called to it, to come to me. But alas, the tissue box stayed on the dresser as the near-to-sleep baby laid in my arms in the reclining chair. […]

Stories of Pops

Condolences to all of you who lost your former teacher, coach, mentor, friend and family member Roy “Pops” Warner. I began at The Clarkston News after he retired from Clarkston Community Schools so I never met him. I did get to know him through players he coached, graduates he taught and current coaches. Just by […]

Wendi’s Word: One year mark

Jonathan was slowing down in his playing in the open room in the new house on Sunday. After nearly a year I knew the signs of my baby boy – he was also getting cranky and cranky tired, not cranky hungry. If I didn’t act quick the smiling infant would go into scream vocal mode. […]
