Key demographic

Early results: LSJ is keeping senior citizen subscribers

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Ever since he got out of the Army in 1946, Dillard Garrison has read a daily newspaper from cover to cover. Sometimes it was the Lansing State Journal, sometimes it was the Detroit Free Press, it didn’t matter — it was just part of his everyday routine. Five years ago, the 89-year-old moved to Friendship Manor, a retirement community next to Frandor, where the routine continues, albeit in a somewhat altered format. “We have a ritual,” says Garrison. “I bring the paper down and we all check the obituaries to see if we’re in there.”

Rallying for (and against) Romney

The most exciting part of Mitt Romney's speech Tuesday at Lansing Community College was the end

by Sam Inglot
Enthusiastically awaiting his arrival hours before the event, in the shadow of a Romney campaign bus, the small group brandished American flags and signs bearing the GOP presidential candidate’s name. When a car honked its horn in support, the group responded back with hoots and hollers.

'I'm an artist'

Pat Lindemann paints the big picture

by Lawrence Cosentino
“The Great Lakes basin has 20 percent of the available water in the whole world,” Lindemann said. “This is a major responsibility.” He blinked, as if distracted from a telescope trained on the Andromeda galaxy by a rat scurrying across the observatory. “You can’t get here and try to manage that through name-calling, innuendoes, threats and all the other crap that a lot of politicians like to pull, including Grebner.”

But when contacted for comment, Paul Grescowle, the grandson of the original owners who runs the day-to-day operations at Emil’s, wouldn’t confirm anything. He said it is the building next door which is for sale, and that is owned by his mother, who also owns Emil’s itself. He also asked that we refrain from running this story, implying that it would stir up much ado about nothing. Can’t do that, but I will remind everyone about the awesome all-you-can-eat spaghetti-and-meatballs on Tuesdays.
