Free Cell Phones; what will the next giveaway be?

I, along with a lot of other people, often wonder why the government ever decided to give away free phones to people. I can’t even begin to imagine the cost that is shared by every working person in the United State of America.

I see people who are covered with tattoos, smoking cigarettes, buying beer & booze and have a nice vehicle with these phones and wonder, if they can afford all these things, why can’t they afford a phone? Don’t they have family members that can be of help to them? Family are supposed to help their own.

I grew up in a large family who took care of themselves. We didn’t have a phone in our home until it was almost time for me to graduate from high school but we all seemed to survive. If it was something really important, we had a neighbor who was gracious enough to let us use their phone but that was rare.

Kentwood invites Residents to Join in helping restore Trees

Kentwood invites Residents to Join in helping restore Trees

The City of Kentwood is still trying to recoup from the loss of so many large trees that were lost to the Emerald Ash Borer disease. The idea is to restablish some of the beautiful tree lined streets that were lost.

They have initiated a program called Residental Street Tree Program where they invite residents to contact them with a request for a tree to be planted in the boulevard by their homes, between the sidewalk and the street. The City will split the cost of the tree and installation, thereby costing the home owner approximately $200 per tree.

You are invited to contact Community Developement at 616-554-0707 for more on this program.
