A positive attitude is the key to longevity, there is positive in anything, even Obamacare, as itRead More allows folk to find a use for spending extra money that will help the less fortunate, whether they wanted the healthcare or not. The passengers on the 777 flight are probably safe and secure in Pakistan, held as long term hostages by nefarious folk. Obama will probably win the basketball March madness, since he deems that more important than world affairs, but that's ok, at least something is being accomplished. Keep that positve attitude.

Considering how long and well he lived, we would be wise to heed his advice! Also, the fact thatRead More his son said that he will "miss his companionship" would imply he was a genuine man. I hope my children will miss that about me one day.

This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. This has to do with a good man looking at lifeRead More from a positive view point. Maybe exercise, good food, and the ability to learn new things.

I Thought the Lions practice facility was mainly located in Allen Park.
Michael D. Albano March 12, 2014 at 10:45 am
A few years back at a council meeting, it was stated that the Lion's Practice Facility is 18% inRead More Allen Park and 82% in Dearborn. The address is located on the Allen Park side of the structure, and that is why it is referred to as being in Allen Park, when it reality, most of it is in Dearborn...

My condolences to the Ford Family. In a world of faceless corporations and institutions, it isRead More good to see the roots of such a great company and to know the family is still a part of that corporation!

The Lions were a mess for so many years . But it was his team and he ran it his wayRead More . Just when they get a really good coach this happens . I think the Lions may make the playoffs . They should dedicate the season to WCF . He was a great man for the city with all his generous contributions and charity work . He will be missed . RIP True Blue Ford man .

I knew Agnes and greatly admired and respected her. She was a principled person and clearly stood byRead More what was right regardless of the political climate that surrounds our everyday life. P3

Nelson Mandela was a tireless advocate of his causes, and always looked to reach across the aisleRead More for a solution to satisfy all sides. I am sure he would have approved of Michigan becoming a 'Right to Work' state, which allows workers the right and freedom in the workplace to choose for themselves whether to belong to a union or not, one of the many forms of freedom that Nelson Mandela was famous for in South Africa, and around the world.

Nelson Mandela is a hero of mine. So is Mahatma Ghandi. Both sought and affected change throughRead More non-violence. Another hero is Henry David Thoreau who was the architect of "Civil Disobedience" practiced by Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi. Special men in a time that required special actions. Not sure that I could endure what they did. I'm not inclined to turning a cheek for anyone. P3

It's a fine thing that the Patch syndicate included a bulletin of this tragic event. You see, I haveRead More been living in a cave with no access to a radio, television, newspapers or any other media, so I didn't know that the former president of South Africa had died. Now, if only I could find a source for local news.

He was a very sweet man!! I was a child when we had car trouble on the Ambassador Bridge, maybe 1979Read More or 1980, and he was the one who stopped to help us and got our car going again......May he rest in peace.
Tom B February 8, 2013 at 01:42 pm
Unbelievably, that is the last time I saw him, on the bridge this past year. I waved and he wavedRead More back. He truly loved his home town.
Tammy Robert March 10, 2013 at 05:08 am
He truly loved people. He spent time with my husband with lung cancer. He was such a humble and downRead More to earth man with a heart of gold.
