The Next Adopt-A-Highway

Trash Pick-up Coming Soon!

Our illustrious “Captain Highway” a.k.a. Derek Desgranges, fearless leader of the SPY’s Adopt-A-Highway project, wants to remind everyone about Saturday July 16th. will be the second 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.

Again, if for any reason you can’t make it for the April 23rd. pick-up day, but would still like to help out by doing some picking up on a different day of that week, just give Derek a call at 269-838-7686 and get some bags and he will give you a small section to take care of.

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: A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking. Because, her trust is not on the branch, but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself!

• Notable Quote: "Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one come to you without leaving happier.”---Mother Teresa

• That’s Puny Department: What do you get when you mix alcohol and literature? Tequila a mockingbird. (Think about it).

• Did You Know Section: James Howell Howard was in the United States Air Force and the only fighter pilot in the European Theater of Operations in World War II to receive the Medal of Honor — the United States military's highest decoration. In fact, Howard was an ace in two operational theaters during World War II, with six kills with the Flying Tigers of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) in the Pacific and at least six kills over Europe with the United States Air Force. On January 11, 1944, Howard flew his P-51 unaccompanied into some 30 Luftwaffe fighters that were attacking a formation of American B-17 Flying Fortress bombers over Oschersleben, Germany. For more than a half-hour, Howard defended the heavy bombers of the 401st Bomb Group against the swarm of Luftwaffe fighters, repeatedly attacking the enemy and shooting down as many as six. Even after Howard's P-51 ran out of ammunition, he continued to dive on enemy airplanes. CBS commentator Andy Rooney, then a wartime reporter for Stars and Stripes, called Howard's exploits "the greatest fighter pilot story of World War II.
