Dorr Township Trustee Patty Senneker Monday night was censured unofficially by colleagues on the Township Board for her conduct Aug. 6, the day after the primary election.

Her e-mail, which was circulated to all six of her board colleages, read as follows:

The 2014 football season for Hopkins and Wayland will get under way at 7 p.m. Thursday in “Border Wars III,” the continuation of a neighborhood rivalry.
Hopkins, winner of the first two encounters, 35-6 and 19-12, will be host for this one, and it has a solid group of veterans that promise to pose a lot of problems for the visiting Wildcats.
The most explosive player on the field will be Viking senior Quincy Collings, who ran back three kickoffs for touchdowns last season and who was the state Division 3 high jump champion. He will be back at a running back slot.
The Wayland High School Class of 1964 had its 50-year reunion Saturday afternoon and evening.

Wayland City Councilwoman Tracy Bivins has reconsidered and agreed to be a write-in candidate for re-election.
Bivins and fellow incumbent Jeff Hudson in July were absent from the list of people who filed for a two-year term on the council in the Nov. 4 general election. Their decisions left only two candidates, incumbent Tim Rose and Planning Commission Chairman Ron Kobish, on the ballot for the three open seats.
I’ve been following presidential elections and presidents actively for more than 40 years, and I cannot recall any who have taken more abusive vitriol than Barack Obama.
I can already hear the eruption from the loyal opposition that he deserves it, but I emphasize that I too have been terribly disappointed in that “hopey changey thingy” that swept him into office in 2008. Because of that disappointment, I really don’t enjoy defending a president with whom I also have a lot of issues.
