Eight bite-size Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting for Opening Day 5 at Fifth Third Field:
In divorce court, it's called "irreconcilable differences."
Yes, Mr. Sanders had a wandering eye for other jobs. Yes, Ms. Fisher was overly critical of Mr. Sanders before she was elected to the board in November. Neither one could get past these supposed past sins of the other.
They couldn't put their differences aside and develop a working relationship you know, for the good of a 30,000-student school district.

With Mr. Laumann's letter fresh in my mind, I boarded a TARTA bus and headed to work. The problem is not limited to I-475, that's for sure. I was amazed at the amount of trash along the Anthony Wayne Trail.

Thanks for opening my eyes, Mr. Laumann.
