A narrative of my work experiences and community service at the brown county public library system

Buck, asked me on my first day of high school, making sure the whole class could clearly hear my dilemma. I looked down at my breasts, their little white mounds pushing up and slightly out of a shirt that was low-cut and tight-fitting, but not too provocative, at least I thought.

Gary Peters and U. Fred Upton are working on legislation to make James C. If the legislation is approved and he receives it, it will mark the third time a South Haven veteran has received the Medal of Honor. Then-Private First Class McCloughan, a native and current resident of South Haven, served as a medic and saved the lives of 10 members of his platoon who were wounded during the Battle of Nui Yon Hill on May When discharged from the service he rose to the rank of Specialist SP5.

Commander in the U. The legislation proposed by the three Michigan legislator would waive the five-year requirement and when signed into law, will make it possible for the President to award the Medal of Honor to McCloughan.

So Rydecki decided to go on a mission. Armed with a pad of paper and pencil she began to survey her neighbors to see if they wanted better internet service and if they would be willing to pay for Comcast high-speed internet.

Rydecki thought if she could get enough signatures perhaps Comcast would agree to extend service to the neighborhood, which lies along a one-mile stretch of County Road between M Highway and 68th Street. The neighbors were more than willing to pay for better internet service. Only 25 homes are located in that vicinity.

It appears that we will be waiting a long time for such service to our rural areas. Gary Peters at a town hall meeting at Bloomingdale Communications. We have the computer devices, but when students go online, the learning stops. Closer to home, State Rep.

Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton has introduced a bill that would provide a year personal property tax exemption to companies that expand fiber-optic and other broadband services that reach a minimum speed of 50 megabits per second.

Two smaller independent firms are trying hard to bridge the digital divide. Bloomingdale originally offered phone service, while Midwest focused on providing electric service to its customers. But in the past decade, the two companies have begun delving into providing internet services.


The folks in rural spaces have been underserved forever. Rural America only got power because rural America made it happen themselves. Here we are again. The digital divide is similar to the electric divide we had in the s.

The company has 23 electrical zones in Southwest Michigan. Over the next five years it plans to extend high-quality internet service to its customers, depending on demand. A customer there, John Muehlhausen helped spur customer demand for the service.

For him, high-speed internet is a business necessity. The company currently offers fiber-optic internet services to 2, of its 3, customers, but it would like to extend it to its entire service area.

However, cost stands in the way. Key and other company officials hope that working with legislators, such as Peters and Nesbitt, will help to leverage more government support to end the digital divide between urban and rural residents in Van Buren County.

Even though Clinton captured the popular vote by a slim margin, Trump emerged the victor after narrowly winning the electoral college. But, a day after the historic election, Republicans, who firmly grabbed the majority of House and Senate seats, gathered to support Trump, prompting many Americans, including ones in the South Haven area to wonder what the future holds for the country.

The speech was very uplifting, and then it all went downhill Tuesday. To win the election, Trump needed to capture at least electoral votes, and did so,according to CNN.

Voters in 19 states, including California, Illinois and New York, cast their votes for Clinton, but Trump was able to hold on in key battleground states, including Michigan and Florida. Eight counties, including Kalamazoo Kent, Wayne and Genesee counties went for Clinton, while the remainder, including Van Buren County, cast the majority of their votes for Trump.

So how did the pollsters, who predicted two days before the election that Clinton would win, get it wrong? Pollsters also predicted more people would vote in this election than in the presidential election.

It could have gone either way.

Last year was a challenging year for my wife as it was her first year teaching in a new school system and at a different grade level. As she returned to work this week to start her 19th year as a teacher, I was on the road facilitating a workshop and called her to see how things were going.
