First Adopt-A-Highway Trash Pick-Up

Is This Saturday


Our illustrious “Captain Highway” a.k.a. Derek Desgranges, fearless leader of the SPY’s Adopt-A-Highway project, wants to remind everyone THIS  Saturday April 13th. will be the first highway trash pick-up of the season. The SPY's pick-up trash along M-43 from Round Lake Road on the west side of town to Shaytown Road on the east side of town, three times a year in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Transportation program. What do you say, let’s have a great turnout and spiff up the roadsides leading into our community.

Parting Comments


·      Deep Thought of the Week:  Bifocals are God’s way of saying, “Keep your chin up.”


·      Notable Quote: “I don’t understand how I can remember every word of a song from 1964, but I can’t remember why I walked into the kitchen!”


·      That’s Puny Department:  “I have a fear of speed bumps, But I’m slowly getting over it.”


·      Did You Know Section: The “nut” in “Honey Nut Cherrios” used to be ground almonds in the recipe, but is now made from natural almond flavoring which is typically manufactured not from almonds, but from peach pits.


·      Did You Know Bonus:  In medieval Germany, married couples could legally settle their disputes by fighting a marital duel.  To even the field, the man had to fight from inside a hole with one arm tied behind his back.  The woman was free to move and was armed with a sack filled with rocks.  The man had three clubs at his disposal.  If he touched the side of the hole during combat, he would forfeit one of his clubs.  Whoever lost the battle would be put to death.
