West Michigan Healing Field Coming In Rockford Next Week

The Rockford Area Community Endowment will be the host to a 2011 West Michigan Healing Field® 9/11 flag memorial where you will behold a beautiful display of 3,200 U.S. flags. These 3′X5′ flags will stand 8′ tall in perfect rows. This living display of heroism will fly as a temporary patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, and will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of all those who died September 11, 2001.

“We will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 attack on our country and those who lost their lives that day with the West Michigan Healing Field,” said Steve Gerencer, Volunteer Chair of West Michigan Healing Field. “These 3,200 American flags will be an incredible visual memorial, making sure we never forget those victims or the support of our local safety personnel and military that put our safety ahead of their own every day.”

50 Positions Are Up For Grabs At Today’s Job Fair!

I just saw a crawler (the words that scroll at the bottom of your t.v. screen) during the news this morning that indicated 74% of us have either lost a job or have a close relative or friend who has lost a job this year alone.

The website announced just the other day that it will live stream Chicago's Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits in (obviously) Austin, TX.

As I walked into work today, I stopped in the lobby to watch the big screen coverage of NASA's thirty-year space shuttle program come to an end.

History was made earlier today as Atlantis safely landed in Cape Canaveral, Florida.  Four astronauts took the trip into space to deliver a year's worth of supplies and food to cosmonauts who remain living at the International Space Station.
