Carl Coffey

Paper or plastic? Other than bagging groceries at the A&P in town or milking cows on Daddy and Mother’s dairy farm, I’ve only ever worked “on-air” in radio. After high school, I read the obituary report on the Lapeer radio station (yep, same frequency) and was a Mortarman in the 4rth Infantry Division in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Bringing free-form radio back to Detroit in creating and hosting "The Rif Rock Café” and being “Your Afternoon Coffey Break” were high-points of my radio career in the Motor City. I’m glad for the opportunity to entertain and inform listeners every morning on US 103.1, to promote the neighborhood and to be part of the community I grew up in.

According to an article in the Westmeath Examiner, Bruce was presented with his Irish passport and his great, great grandmother’s birth certificate a couple of years ago in Ireland. Ann Garrity lived in Mullingar before leaving for America where she settled in New Jersey on Leopold Street: the same street Bruce was born 70 years later.

Pour Some Sugar On Me: It’s Maple Syrup Season in Lapeer County

Freezing nights and warm days don’t just mean winter’s almost gone: they get maple tree sap running. I tried it once. Did you know Michigan ranks fifth in maple syrup production or that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup? Steam is probably billowing out of several sugar shacks in the county right now including my neighbors the Arnolds, the Nelsons and the Steckleys.
