Why Does MLive Keep Stealing My Poll Questions? [POLL]

They say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". If that's true, then I'm very flattered! MLive.com, the internet and digital arm of the Grand Rapids Press and Booth Newspapers here in Michigan, must either be running out of things to write about, or I have my finger on the pulse of West Michigan better than I realized. The last week they have copied 2 of my WFGR website poll questions almost word for word!

Families In Zeeland Have To Remove Roadside Memorial [POLL]

The Ottawa County Sheriff has told a family they have to takedown the makeshift memorial to their daughter because it's "too close to the road". Amy Diane Linares was killed nearly 2 years ago by a drunk driver, and since her death an intricate roadside memorial was created by friends and family near Westbound I-196 by the Zeeland exit. Now since it's "too close" to the freeway, the family has to dismantle the memorial.

Downtown Pita House Closing…BOO!

I work in downtown Grand Rapids. That's where WFGR is located. Altough it doesn't happen often, I hate seeing places around town close up shop. Espcially downtown. I really hated to see Quiznos go, and even though it's not downtown, i was not happy to see Sandmann's BBQ on Wealthy in the Baxter neighborhood close up as well. And now a downtown eatery is closing over the weekend.

Happy Earth Day West Michigan! Win One Year Of Kitchen Recycling!

It's Earth Day! I thought a long time ago Americans wouldn't embrace Earth Day. It's a pain to recycle, it's time consuming, and it would go by the way side like Betamax and the McLean Deluxe. I was wrong. By a landfill full of VCR's and seaweed hamburger wrappers. And now a local company wants to reward your good recycling habits,

Elton John Or Power Reactor Meeting–Which Would YOU Choose?

Poor Fritz Klug. He works for MLive and the Kalamazoo Gazette. I'm sure when he saw he was chosen for the writing assignment "Elton John in Kalamazoo Today" he would get to meet Sir Elton. Or at least get to see the show for free. Great thing to tweet about. Only one little problem.

Rob Bliss Gets Extension To Pay City Debt To Host Music Fest-Agree Or Disagree?

Rob Bliss is getting ready to host his second annual Electronic Music Fest. And he still owes the city money. Almost $5,200 from last years' festival. He also owes almost $27,000 from the giant water slide from last year. So the City brought all this up last night when deciding to let him have an exemption to the sound curfew.

Grand Rapids Radio Talent Allison Harte Passes

I never worked with Allison, and she never worked at the former Regent or current Townsquare Media stations, including WFGR. And she DID work at our "competitors". But at this point none of that matters. A person dies. A family mourns. Our prayers here at WFGR go out to Allison's family.
