The National Baby Food Festival welcomed the 2021 First Baby Born, Ryder Maynard, on Thursday. Ryder was born at 12:03 a.m. on that day, just a few hours after the 2021 target date and time of 8:21 p.m. on Wednesday...
During this past weekend the Sheriff’s Office took 173 calls for service which included 75 traffic stops.
Then at 02:14am Monday morning, Deputy Rachael Botello conducted a traffic stop on Warner Avenue and 108th Street in Bridgeton Township for a minor traffic violation. During the stop, it was believed that illegal substances may be in the vehicle so a request was placed for Officer Troy Nelson and K9 Bella from the Newaygo Police Department to assist.
After Bella indicated an issue with the vehicle, a search was conducted with...
We definitely will be playing from the short tees to the short baskets on our next trip until we get better at sending the discs in the correct direction. Luckily the way this course is set up, there are two tees and two baskets at each hole, giving players four levels of difficulty to choose from. The course is set up so everyone can have fun and be challenged regardless of skill level. The professional layout is highly challenging for advanced players, with many ways to lose a disc or hit an obstacle. It will put some of the best disc golf professionals through their paces and hopefully draw many collegiate and professional tournaments to the Newaygo area.
On a recent bike ride along the Lakeshore Trail, I spied a large bush of black raspberries. It was the first wild black raspberry bush I had seen in many a year.
There were only a few ripe black berries to pick but I considered it a major treat anyway. They are tastier than their red raspberry cousins. No doubt about that.
Black raspberries are not easy to come by. They aren’t usually available at farmers markets or grocery stores, because they are not easy to ship. And not many people grow them in their gardens.
And now a new sextet of courts will be drawing pickleballers to Henning Park. Behind a collaborative effort the Newaygo County Parks Department has taken the old tennis courts used for many years as a makeshift place for matches and created a stellar set that will see players from throughout the region taking advantage of the new digs. And one can easily predict...

...the current national surge in cases is primarily occurring in areas where vax rates are even lower than those in our fair county (under 50%? Seriously, folks?) and it is hoped the same fate doesn’t follow here since misinformation surrounding vaccinations seems to have found itself a bit of a niche in NC.
For an interesting take on the influence of some segments of the media on anti-vax sentiment in our area check out this recent article from Dr. Rob Davidson...
You’ve likely seen the ads before. Maybe you’ve even considered combining your personal appreciation for the art of driving with a chance to bring in a little extra cash?
Beyond the usual requirements found at the end of this article we thought perhaps hearing from someone who has experienced being ‘at the wheel’ of the effort to bring both vittles and a visit to some of the senior members of our county community.
We caught up with Kim Mcclernan, one of the drivers for M.O.W. and posed a few questions.
I’ve heard from people “I’ve tried meditating and it just doesn’t work for me.” Tell us how this is different than the standard image people have of meditation
I tried other techniques before being introduced to TM. They were difficult and I found very few benefits. Within a few days after learning TM I knew it was different: it was easy to do and the benefits, although subtle, were there right from the beginning...
