It’s one of the sweetest times in summer — peach season in Southwest Michigan! Now ‘til mid-September you can pick sun-ripened, juicy peaches right from the tree. These aren’t those hard, must-wait-until-they-ripen fruits they bring to your grocery store from southern states. They are ready to eat, bake, freeze and preserve right now.

Sharknado by Beth Mandarino

There’s something fishy about St. Joseph, Mich., now through Sept. 21. In this Lake Michigan resort town, you can see 19 fish and shark sculptures lining the downtown sidewalks and below the bluff, plus one shark sculpture at the New Buffalo Welcome Center on eastbound I-94. They are part of the Fishing for Fun in St. Joseph public art display.
