This morning we had the great honor to talk with a Special Olympian from Grand Rapids.  He'll be competing in 50 and 100 meter dash, 4x4 relay and shotput. 

Lou Ferreri is a mixed media visual artist whose 120 piece show is currently on display at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  His exhibit, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible" is an extensive collection of intricate, elaborate doodles created on the editorial sections of the New York Times.  Twenty five of those works have an accompanying essay gifting the viewer with even more depth, context and understanding to those associated pieces.  All of the works are cholk full of a unique balance of symbolism and relatable images as well as whimsy and gravity.  The twenty five with accompanying writings are collected and displayed in the book, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible."

“Hood, known primarily for her adult novels, offers up a coming-of-age story steeped in nostalgia, humor, and heart. There’s obvious appeal for Beatles fans, but Trudy, irrepressible in her struggle to maintain friendships in a changing world, will win many admirers of her own.”

The GOP-backed measure, which covers farm and food policy legislation, passed 213-211.

The $867 billion package renews the safety net for farmers across the country, but also includes tougher work requirements for recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Program or SNAP, formerly known as food stamps.

A Texas sheriff has barred his deputies from taking on additional work as off-duty security at a recently built tent encampment intended to house migrant children separated from their parents at the border.
