If you grew up in  Michigan  you probably had a Stormy Kromer hat that your mom forced you to wear every day in the cold months which is most of the year. And if you’re among the rest of the nation, you likely never had any reason to wear a Kromer or know what it is. Now these hats popularized by Elmer Fudd have become something of a fashionable item.  I know we were trend setters growing up it just took 40 years for it to catch on.

Five people were treated for minor injuries after they fell from two chairs on a ski lift at the Sierra at Tahoe ski resort, a resort spokeswoman said.

Kirstin Cattell, spokeswoman, said high winds broke off the top of a tree at the Highway 50 resort and the tree top fell onto the lift line. The impact caused the occupants in two nearby chairs to be bounced out of their seats and into the snow between 5 feet and 15 feet below.

Cattell said the ski patrol arrived at the site within minutes and provided aid. Resort operators, faced with worsening high winds, decided a few minutes later – at 11 a.m. – to shut down the resort, she said.

The National Weather Service said winds were expected to reach 70 mph over peaks at the 7,000-foot level later Sunday. The resort’s base elevation is 7,300 feet, Cattell said.

This year has gone by fast for me and as we enter into this Christmas season I’d like to reflect on what this time is for. As we gather with our families and friends I think about how I wish every day could be like Christmas, not for the gifts or food but for the attitudes of giving and helping the less fortunate.  You can say what you like about the United States but there is not a country on this plant that contains a more kind and generous people.  I feel blessed to have been born he and call it my home.  No matter what happens in this world the Americans are the first to respond and offer their help to those in need. This time of year we focus on a spirit of giving here in our country.  Not that we stop caring for others it is just more self evident right here in our own cities and towns. Read more
