MI House Representative Takes A Flying Leap

MI House Representative Takes A Flying Leap

It was a cold February day when MI House Representative Lisa Poshumus Lyons took a flying leap into a freezing pool for charity. It was the Legislative Polar Plunge at the Capitol Building in Lansing for Special Olympics Michigan Athletes. About 20 Michigan Legislators, plus Lt. Governor Brian Calley lined up to show their support for Special Olympics Michigan. The second annual Legislative Polar Plunge raised more than $30,000 to benefit children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This Polar Plunge was one of 28 Polar Plunges throughout Michigan from January through this month to benefit Special Olympics Michigan.

Forest Hills school bus in AM accident

CASCADE, MI – The icy roads made for a dangerous commute this morning.  Numerous accidents and slide outs were reported in Kent County.  A Forest Hills school bus was rear ended this morning on Cascade Road.  There were no reported injuries.  Cascade Road looked more like a skating rink as several cars skidded off the street in the morning commute. 

I-96 wasn’t much better.  Most drivers seemed to take the advice posted on the MDOT sign to slow down in slippery conditions.  A commute that normally takes 15 minutes took 45 minutes this morning as most motorists slowed down.
