FOR YOUR INFORMATION...
THE FLAG OF IRELAND AND ITS MEANING
by Borgna Brunner
Rarely has a flag possessed such lasting relevance as that of the "Tricolour," the national flag of the Republic of Ireland. Its three equal stripes illustrate the Irish political landscape as accurately today as in 1848, the year the flag was first unfurled.

Cabbage might be the family's least favorite part of St. Patrick's Day dinner, and there are probably a few people you know who give it a miss altogether. If you want to get everyone enjoying their sides, take a page out of the traditional Irish recipe book and try Colcannon instead!

MILITARY HISTORY & NEWS
By Mike Sonnenberg
On the outskirts of Saginaw in the back of Oakwood Cemetery is the veterans section with a Civil War Monument surrounded by tombstones of the veterans that so proudly served in the military. You will notice one marker is cleaner than the rest of the markers. I don’t know who Ross F. Huffman is other than what is written on his marker and that he served in the infantry during World War II. His marker is in a restored state and cleaned compared to the surrounding headstones. My friend worked at the cemetery, and he told me that one of Mr. Hoffman’s relatives was researching their genealogy and family heritage when they discovered they were related to Mr. Hoffman. While visiting the cemetery, they painstakingly scrubbed and cleaned the tombstone. It stands out among the other markers but they deserve to be honored and remembered.
