Family of Eight Sings as One
Pearson Family 1
May 29th, 2015 by Meghan Dooley

In America, a cohesive and strong family unit can typically mean spending one night a week playing board games or even heading to the movies. While the Pearson family spends time participating in all of the above, they also have another unique common interest. The Pearson Family, ranging from ages 4 to 15, are all talented singers and musically inclined artists. Husband and Pastor Scotty Pearson said it all began when he and his wife Layfoya met in choir class at Ottawa Hills High School, and from there, it blossomed as they married and started having kids. Now, they perform throughout the West Michigan community as a family. [Read More]

Mad Miller Strikes Again
Mad Max Fury Road 2
May 27th, 2015 by Brett Wiesenauer

Over the last year, it’s been a slog anticipating movies. Enough movies have come and gone, here today gone tomorrow that I’ve just about given up on hoping for good, enjoyable genre films to come out and make a difference. I’ve been burned way too many times; PACIFIC RIM was amazing, but critics and audiences dismissed it as nothing special, Godzilla meandered around rather than inspiring any adoration, and anything who mentions the name Michael Bay to my face might as well slap themselves before I do it harder, with a folding chair.

But then, here comes George Miller, septuagenarian madman extraordinaire, to show off his kaleidoscopic symphony of insane imagination, relentless adrenaline, and consummate joy: Mad Max: FURY ROAD. [Read More]

5-Year-Old Kentwood Boy found unresponsive in pool
May 26th, 2015 by Cindy Stevens

At approximately 7:20 pm on May 24, 2015, the Kentwood Police Department responded to the community pool at the Wingate Apartments on a report of a child in the pool and unresponsive. The 5-year-old male was pulled from the pool at Wingate Apartments by a resident. The subject’s 9-year-old brother was also present at the time. Kentwood Officers arrived on scene immediately after this and began CPR on the child. Kentwood Firefighters and EMTs arrived next and took over medical treatment. The child was transported by ambulance to the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. The child is currently in critical condition at the hospital. [Read More]

Baseball: A Game for All People

May 25th, 2015 by Nathan Beuschel, West Michigan Lutheran High School

For many years, baseball has been referred to as America’s pastime and for good reason. Baseball is played by many ages and nationalities. My experience playing baseball has created a whole new meaning of the game.
Last summer, I had a wonderful opportunity to play with a group of men in the West Michigan Hispanic Baseball League. It is an adult men’s baseball league right here in the greater Grand Rapids area. Teams play games once a week during the summer [Read More]
