Wine Scene

This Shiraz is from Australia and it SUXX

Nobody has more fun with their wine labels than those down-under Aussies. This is a prime example. When I ran across this at a local wine shop, I had to do a double take to make sure I read the label right; sure enough it said SUXX. Then I turned the bottle around and read the back label: “ Today […]

Township refuses possession of tax reverted properties



FLINT TWP. —Apparently no one wants the white frame house at 1236 Peachwood Drive, not even the township.
