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. […]

Just by […]

Wendi’s Word: Thanksgiving tips

I am in the midst of moving which means there are piles of boxes. There are also just piles of stuff because I am optimistic to keep like items together and not just swoop things into boxes. But with only a few days to go and not a lot of time belongings might be swooped […]

Making a home

With a few signatures and turning over the keys marked my dad’s house as sold and moving on to its next owners last Friday. I stopped by the day before to take one last look around the house, remembering how it was before the rooms were emptied of furniture and pictures taken off the walls. […]

Starting over with food

Broccoli, cauliflower, green beans – I have your attention now, don’t I, with vegetables. Those are the three vegetables I ate today – four cups of health. I am back on what I consider the bootcamp plan with Nuview Nutrition. It’s the only way I could be good while eating without going off the wagon […]
