Word of the day: animadversion (an-uh-mad-VUR-zhuh n) which means an unfavorable or censorious comment. Animadversion can be traced to the Latin animadvertere “to heed, censure” with the root animus meaning “mind, spirit, courage, passion, wrath.” It entered English in the mid-1500s.

Still no delays to report.

Hey, Let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.


To Lucas and all our listeners, Dr Charles Mayo wrote, “worry affects the circulation-the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system. I have never known a man who died from overwork, but many who died from doubt.” So stop worrying and get working.


On a lighter note, what did the shy pebble wish? Just that she be a little bolder!


That’s the WVBI Community Calendar for Friday July 15th, 2016. I’m Greg Doig at WVBI‚ the Voice of Beaver Island.
