    Ice Island in Lake Michigan. (pic. from upnorthlive.com)   Also, did you know that painting the center line in the middle of a road started in Michigan?

We get a rundown of what’s on the NBC Nightly News.  This was in the promo Friday:  “Weather Channel meteorologist Eric Fisher has the latest on the storm. Al Roker reports on how the European storm models have been better predictors of storm paths in recent years than the American models.”

    I noticed that I get very off topic when there are no storm systems! Hopefully the one this Monday brings some action!

    Any word on the Walmart stories

    1. Bill Steffen says:

      Yeah…bomb threats were called in to the WalMart in Holland Twp. and the one in Grandville. The Holland Police said it was a nationwide call-in. Hope they find those who did this and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

    Bill, I seen the Al Roker report on NBC. I hope members of congress and the White House was watching. I feel at times, the USA is loosing ground on all fronts, hi-tech, education, etc. It’s sad when we have to depend upon Europe for a good weather forecast. I worked in security for about 20 years, I had my share of bomb threats. Walmart is a good company, and provide good jobs, etc. I guess that makes them a target for some “nut case”.

      The vast majority of taxes go to National Defense instead of putting it into our childrens education.

      1. Bill Steffen says:

        By far the biggest tax distribution goes to entitlements (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Bridge Cards, etc.). That’s more than double the defense budget. A little under 20% of the Federal Budget (not counting all the other taxes you pay) goes to Defense. Within the defense budget there is a lot of stuff tucked away, including money for research into breast cancer. http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=1258

        If you have a job, it’s a “good job”.
