I’m certainly still grieving, sometimes horribly, but my new man understands, and he’s patient. He appreciates me and insists on my total commitment to him (meaning that I can’t date anyone else). The problem is, he lives in another state, and in our year together, his work schedule has kept him from visiting me. He can make me quiver when we talk on the phone, but the distance leaves me lonely at night. Can a long-distance relationship ever work?

Art by the River rebounds from vandalism

$2,000 reward offered for information about destruction of 'Meditation Tower'

by Tracy Key
"We, of course, feel badly for the artist," said Rick Kibbey, chairman of the City of Lansing park board and Second Ward representative. "Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. It's not only in Lansing, but anywhere else in the world. There seems to be something in a certain kind of mind that takes satisfaction from destroying stuff.
