IN GOOD FAITH: September tidal wave - The September tidal wave has broken upon us. It used to feel more like a gentle wave; one you’d hop on to ride your boogie board onto the beach of the fall routine. The post-Labor Day schedule may have been slightly jarring but it was manageable; all part of the rhythm of American life. By The Rev. Tim Schenck, GHNS.
MARKETTA GREGORY: Family is where the home is - When hundreds of people you love live in one place, part of your heart is always there. Always scanning the Internet for news. Always waiting for friends and family to check in on Facebook to say that they’ve made it through the latest tornado or storm. By Marketta Gregory, GHNS.

GRAB THE GOOD: Sometimes the best life is the one you didn’t plan - In 2002, Eric and Melissa Marohn of Downers Grove, Ill., anxiously awaited the birth of their firstborn child. But when the moment came— a moment reserved for the most joyous of life experiences— they realized something was terribly wrong. Excitement turned to fear of the unknown, and they waited, all the while cherishing their fragile daughter, Ella, and surrounding her with love. It didn’t take long for a diagnosis: Ella had Trisomy 18. By Molly Logan Anderson, GHNS.
BEER NUT: Signs of autumn on store shelves - The nights are getting cool, the leaves are just about to start changing colors and liquor store shelves are full of Oktoberfest and pumpkin beers. By Norman Miller, MetroWest, Mass.

STAY TUNED: 'Survivorman' is back with more high-stakes adventure - You know that question: “If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you take?” Well, I have the definitive answer: matches, water and Les Stroud. Matches for fire, water for hydration and Les for everything else. A survival expert and host of “Survivorman,” Les will not only find food, build shelter and steer you away from poisonous berries but also film everything so you can watch it after you've been rescued. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.
FARR SIDE: 25th anniversary of ‘Bad’ - Twenty-five years ago, some of music’s most cherished albums were released: “Faith” (George Michael), “The Joshua Tree” (U2), “Hysteria” (Def Leppard), “Whitney” (Whitney Houston), “Sign O The Times (Prince), “Appetite For Destruction” (Guns N’ Roses), “Bad Animals” (Heart), “Kick” (INXS) and “Document” (R.E.M.). That’s an impressive list. Those albums were amazing, but one album that came out 25 years ago this week was just bad enough to make history of its own — in a good way: “Bad” by Michael Jackson. By David T. Farr, Sturgis, Mich.
NEW MOVIES: 'The Words,' 'Samsara' - A roundup of the movies opening in theaters this week. By Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATION: Alabama makes a statement - ’Bama means business. There’s no question Michigan was overrated, that coming off an 11-2 season and Sugar Bowl win too much was expected of these Wolverines who benefitted from a favorable schedule a year ago and got lucky against Virginia Tech in New Orleans when a controversial call went their way. There’s also no question that Michigan is good - not top-10 good, but good - and that the Wolverines were no match for the mighty Crimson Tide. By Eric Avidon, MetroWest, Mass.
RACING: New era in sports car racing begins in 2014 - With no fanfare or eyewitnesses, a treaty was agreed to with a handshake on a golf course, thus ending a 13-year stalemate between rival sports car racing factions.
