Traverse City Gets Its Own Anthem; When Do We in Grand Rapids Get Ours? [Audio/Video]

Traverse City has announced it now has its own anthem.

The Only Way To See Fireworks Is In The Middle of Them [Video]

Drone cameras can be overrated. I mean, how many times can you see a college campus from the air before it just gets boring.

But when you send a drone with a camera attached up into THE MIDDLE of a fireworks display, that's different. There is suspense (the camera could get blown apart at any moment) and there is thrills (shells knocking the camera for a loop).

Enjoy.

Army Spec. Mitchell Oliver Returns to Hometown of Greenville Through Fly A Soldier Home This Summer [Photos]

Deann Oliver greeted an unexpected soldier Saturday.

In helping welcome home returning U.S. military personnel at Gerald R. Ford International Airport, she was doing a supportive shift with fellow Blue Star Mothers of America members and Patriot Guard Riders. A handful of families had already been reunited with loved ones when her eyes fell on someone she wasn’t expecting to see until at least next week: U.S. Army Spec. Mitch Oliver. It was her son.

Deann shrieked with delight, clutching into her knees just beyond Gate B as others in two greeting lines, many holding and waving American flags, clapped, smiled and cried tears of joy. Also beaming was Mitch, who had a bouquet of red roses for his mother snuck to him by his father, Gary Oliver.

He was flown in through Fly A Soldier Home This Summer, a contest sponsored by Ed Koehn Automotive Group in conjunction with Classic Hits 98.7 WFGR and affiliated stations 97.9 WGRD, Channel 95.7 (WLHT), 100.5 The River (WTRV) and 1410 AM The Touch (WNWZ).

I wrote the following essay last year when my oldest, who lives in Los Angeles now, graduated from college, and I thought I'd share it with you.
