Bush and Kerry and elections, oh my

Give me a Y. Give me an I. Give me a K. Give me an E and a S, what’s it spell? Yikes . . . Yikes! YIKES! Now that the two parties in control of politics here and across the nation have had their weeks in the spotlight all I can say is, yikes. […]

Stuck in bureaucratic phone limbo

Gather round the campfire, kids. I shall endeavor to weave a tale of woe, whilst teaching a lesson just as the bards of old. ‘Twas only a few revolutions of the Earth ago, only several passings of the sun have come and gone, but I can still remember the experience as if it were yesterday, […]

What happens when you ain’t moved to . . .

Often times when I am out and about a reader will come up to me and ask, ‘Week in and week out where do you get ideas to write about?? I have answered that question a lot, so I have been able to hone my answer down to something that at least sounds original each […]

Over medicating our youth?

Once again, I love my job. One of the cool things about being Johnny-On-The-Spot, Ace-Reporter, and Award-Winning-Columnist of Don’t Rush Me fame, Don Rush, is community contact. Readers write! They write me, they write opinions, articles and books. And sometimes (if I am lucky) they write me about the books they write or causes they […]

Hot damn! I got a stye in my eye!

Last week I got some great news. News that had me whistling happy tunes, snapping my fingers and tapping my toes. I had a stye in my eye — left to be exact. That’s it. That is my happy news. I went to the urgent care center in Oxford, sat down on the table-bed thing […]

The odor led them to a grisly discovery — the decomposing remains of two human beings. According to Oakland County Sheriff’s reports, the crew found the bodies on I-75, about a […]

From the archives

I hate getting sick and staying out. Blach! But it happens to the best of us. So, here is something from the hallowed halls of Don’tRushMeDom. Hope to see you next week. * * * I save up reader e-mail and once in a while let you, the reader, write my column for me. No […]

What does a bear do in the woods?

Let me start out by saying, I feel its pain. What do I have feelings for? It’s something rather large, warm, fuzzy and cuddly (just like me). It is a bear — a bear that was found passed out in a campsite after a night of binge drinking. Seems to me, I vaguely remember a […]

Locals speak up on local economy

Blessed with only a caveman’s grasp on any situation, I was once again amazed by the power of the community press. The other week I opined on the local economy. In a nutshell, I wrote: ‘Rugged individualism. Entrepreneurial spirit of thems in Michigan 100 years ago put us on the world’s map. Have we too […]
