Dowagiac Rotary Club didn’t meet Thursday noon due to the accumulation of snow, missing a program on The Timbers, the $9.5 million rehabilitation and expansion of the nursing home which closed in 2007.

Gary Vandenberg, sales and marketing director for Atrium Centers, LLC, had been scheduled to tell how local people can start applying for jobs and reserving space for their loved ones.

In canceling school, the wintry blast wiped out Patrick Hamilton Pajama Night and a reindeer visit to Justus Gage.

Band Director CJ Brooks said Thursday afternoon that if there is a second snow day today – and there is – Union High School Jazz Band’s “Jazzy Christmas” concerts Saturday would be canceled.

Due to the inclement weather and the closing of St. Joseph Catholic School in Watervliet, Berrien County Health Department canceled the H1N1 vaccine clinic scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. Dec. 10.

It is yet to be determined if and when this clinic will be re-scheduled.

The health department has another community clinic scheduled Monday, Dec. 14, from 2 to 6 p.m. at First Church of God in St. Joseph.

This clinic is open to the general public.

Anyone who wishes to be vaccinated will be able to do so.

If you have questions regarding influenza vaccination, contact Berrien County Health Department at (269) 927-5636 (Benton Harbor), (269) 684-2800, ext. 5636 (Niles) or (269) 756-2008 (Three Oaks).

A jackknifed semi closed the left lane of eastbound I-94 just east of Exit 80 (Sprinkle Road) in Kalamazoo.

Earlier, three lanes of eastbound I-94 were closed at Mile Marker 25, east of Stevensville, for three semis jack-knifed across the freeway.
