Yes it's not a sexy Presidential election day or even an off year Senate and House election day. It's a really Off off year election day. With lots of City commission and drain commissioner races, will you even bother?
That's Channel 13's headline for the story about the Calder Cup Rally that happened at Van Andel Arena earlier Wednesday night. I really couldn't top it. It just fits. The 50 year pro hockey championship drought spanning the Rockets to the Owls and now the Griffins ended last night in Upstate New York.
You might not have heard of The Fur Circus, but if you watched TV 13's news Saturday morning, or went to the Saturday Griffins game, you are in the know!
The team of furry fun mascots that do a circus like show were on Channel 13 with Jennifer Pascua and Meteorologist Alana Nehring.
Yes it's true. The dollar menu at my local fast food joint is the prefect way to get a quick cheap lunch. Changes, however, are a-comin. And I have to be honest, im not really a big fan. And the folks at TV 13 are right there with me.
It was another exciting WFGR Supermarket Sweep with Access of Kent County, Family Fare and WZZM TV 13. And for the 3rd straight year, we lost! This year, however, we did better than we have ever did. Why? The power of the chicken. Cluck!
Sad news over the weekend from Kentwood. Former Mayor Richard Root passed away on Friday night after a long battle with melanoma. Root was diagnosed over three years ago, and just had stepped down as Mayor this past week. The new mayor of Kentwood, Richard Clanton, was sworn into office Tuesday.
The weather gods are playing another cruel joke on us. First the 8 inches of snow we have had all winter long, and now that it's almost Spring, why not a Winter Storm Warning! According to WZZM TV 13 we could get upwards of 6-8 inches in the Grand Rapids area between tonight and tomorrow morning.
I was at the Family Fare in Grandville for the Spartan Stores Smart Pasta eating contest. It was simple. Some members of the media would have to be the quickest to eat 3 cups of pasta for the chance to donate $1,000 to the charity of their choice. Although I'm a bigger guy, I'm far from a great timed eater. And it showed!
Numerous media outlets, including our broadcast news partner WZZM TV 13, have reported that Fred Meijer, the head of the Meijer store chain, has passed. He died earlier Friday of a brain hemorrhage. Meijer was 91.

WZZM TV 13 has been broadcasting in town for well over 50 years, so when they uncovered video from the 1961 Santa Parade--from 50 years ago--well I think it's pretty cool! Especially when you can see WFGR and Cluck in the 2011 version of the parade. WZZM will be taking video of this parade as well, so in another 50 years people can see how we looked way back in 2011.
