Update from DNR biologist Tom Cooley regarding late season waterfowl mortality: We have received waterfowl from the SW (Ottawa County), the SE (Wayne County), and the NW (Grand Traverse County) and have found essentially the same on all of them—a few traumas and many starvations. We have botulism tested any waterfowl species that has shown up in the past during Type E Botulism die-offs and all of the birds have been negative (which we were sure we were going to find but wanted to test them just in case). We have submitted livers of waterfowl that have died from starvation, submitting individuals from each age and sex grouping that we had available. The birds in Ottawa County all had elevated Selenium levels and those from Wayne County were much closer to the normal expected range. We have not received the metals results for the birds from GT County as of yet. We don’t think that the Selenium levels had anything to do with any of the birds’ deaths, rather that the poor physical condition that t ...

Walk For Warmth Draws Largest Crowd Saturday’s Event Brings Total To $12,500 More than 260 people came together last Saturday at City On A Hill in Zeeland, MI for the 25th annual Walk For Warmth, organized by Community Action Agency.

RESIGNATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Dear Republican Friends & Patriots: After much thought I have decided to resign as Chairman of The Ottawa County Republican Party. It has been my honor to represent you as your Chairman through the last two Election Cycles and that we were able to bring Republican Victory to Ottawa County. I feel in my heart that the Republican Party is moving in the wrong direction and feel I can no longer serve and represent a Party that no longer seems to believe in my core values. Our leadership of the Oklahoma State Republican Party in my opinion is going to destroy all we have worked so hard to accomplish here in Oklahoma. I can no longer be a part of something that does not stand for honor, truth and the principals of what I believed the Republican Party stood for. As President Ronald Reagan stated when he left the Democrat Party; “I did not leave the Democrat Party it left me” I now feel the same way about the Republican Party. Our Vice-Chairman Dr. Greg Hiebert and our Secretary/Trea ...

What a paddling week we have had. Weather is beautiful. Water is warming. And the kayaks float. Perfect together. Monday, Chuck Dalvini, always the adventurer, and I paddled about 8 miles on the Grand around Eastmanville. The current was strong and we had a modest variable wind. Paddling upstream, down stream and across the stream, the high water provided us access to islands and backwaters not always reachable. It was a fun time on this old historic river. Kudo'sto Ottawa County for working to provide water access on their Greenways and the development of the Grand River Heritage Trail. There are a myriad of paddles within the various reaches of the 31 mile trail. Lots of bayous and backwater to explore. This will just become a more popular water to paddle in West Michigan. We are paddling every Monday to different spots on the Grand, until we cover it all. You are welcome to join us, just let me know.

We have more pictures available on our page. URGENT! Help needed!!! People I work with from other rescues and horse welfare organizations were notified that there were 20-30 horses in trouble on Cleveland Road in Coopersville, Michigan, Ottawa County. A picture was also sent to us of a dead horse in the paddock. The horses are starving and live in horrific conditions. On April 18th the authorities were contacted and sent an Animal Control officer out who talked to the owner of the property and horses. He did not enter the property because there was “to much water”. We were told that the next day a round bale was placed in the paddock and the dead horse was dragged out of the paddock to the driveway of the property. The owner does not live on this property. There are paddocks with horses with no hay or food at all. There are no visible water sources for the horses at all. There is a small barn on the property with 2 horses confined with no bedding, food or water. One of our people was able to get onto ...

FROM WOOD TV 8 2-28-13 Parental controls: Protecting your kids Controls restrict gaming console Internet access Updated: Wednesday, 27 Feb 2013, 11:36 PM EST Published : Wednesday, 27 Feb 2013, 9:24 PM EST By Ryan Takeo Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOOD) - Ottawa County investigators are warning parents to keep an eye on their kids ongoing online using video game consoles -- and there is a way for parents to limit that access. The owner of the Play N Trade video game store in Comstock Park told 24 Hour News 8 parents are in uncharted territory because the new generation of game consoles have much more powerful Internet browsers. Owner Craig Ackerman sells the most popular consoles -- some that are pretty close to a computer. "(Parents) think about it as a gaming machine," said Ackerman. "Not many people think of the fact there's an actual browser." A Holland Township mother told 24 Hour News 8 quickly-changing technology connected her 14-year-old daughter with a predator. She had no idea her daughter could use a ...

Whoo hoo...first night of sleep for more than 3 hours. I'm Rip Van Winkle:) We met with Ottawa County Sherrif's Dept, HPD, BR Detective Brian Miller (our lead detective who rocks) and their Captain and Lt's. There is massive cooperative among the various agencies, several of the police officers know Fred personally, and that's reasuring. They are working very diligently to bring Fred home. There is FBI involvement and lots of resources to support this case. That is the good news...the disheartening news is they indicated that we are in the infancy stages of this investigation. Although they know that it feels far from that for Diana and our family, they are still putting together anonymous tips and information and waiting for forensic information. I have extended my time here to be with family. Thank you IHC/Wheelock. I'll be back in New England on Wednesday. We continue to be hopeful even while the waiting is painful. Thanks for continuing to post the flyer and keeping this information ...

THIS IS NOT A SCAM! CMI ABASTO has been around for over 30 years. Our church contacted us with the local contact person. We are working with Jane Patterson. She was a Prosecutor for Ottawa County. She still practices law here in Holland. We have personally met 2 local families that have each sent one child to CMI andt both young men have been heroine free for 2 years now. They are both in Argentina now helping others. One of the families is the Lont Family. Mr Lont was one of our childrens teachers at Holland Christian High School. The other family, the father is a Probation Officer for Ottawa County.

Ottawa County Job Growth 'One of a Kind' Friday, January 25, 2013 Recently released data shows that employment in Ottawa County is growing more than any other job market in Michigan -- more than 5,000 jobs were added in 2012 alone. There is also the possibility of another 500 new jobs at a proposed new Perrigo plant in Holland Township, a plan announced Wednesday. The Holland metropolitan area beat other Michigan job markets handily. Jackson employment grew just over 5%, Battle Creek 1.5%, and Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Kalamazoo all showed private sector employment growth of less than 1% in between 2010 and 2011. Upjohn Institute analyst George Erickcek said the growth in the Holland area is astounding. "It truly is one of a kind. Yes, we saw employment growth in Grand Rapids, it was good growth," he told 24 Hour News 8. "We've seen good growth statewide. Statewide in the past year, about 47,000 jobs were created statewide which is very good growth, but nothing compares what we've been seeing in Ott ...
Haven't read our mission statement? Have a look: If you have had the joy of competing at the Ottawa County 4H Fair in Oak Harbor, Ohio you know the horse arena very well. With a heavy clay mixture the footing can have mixed results depending on the weather conditions. On a calm warm day riding is a pleasure. The arena is worked and watered by dedicated men and women and riders enjoy excellent competition. Add excessive heat and dry conditions and the footing becomes loose and airy. Dust kicks up with numerous riders in the arena. Horses and riders inhale dust particles. Visibility decreases. When the arena is watered on the surface the result is temporary due to the bottom layers not being properly irrigated. Then comes the rain. And we all know that inevitably happens during Fair week. Without proper drainage pools of water becomes lakes in the arena. Clay footing becomes slick and dangerous, thick and deep. Kids, parents, clubs and advisors stand in disbelief looking over the arena knowing the preparat ...
The erection of one, and possibly two, new wind turbines near the shores of Lake Erie in Erie Township have raised the hackles of some community members and visitors, who say the turbines may threaten the well-being of migrating birds, bats and the Ottawa County tourism business.
WHITEHOUSE, OHIO 6-10-10 -- A seasonal Toledo-area attraction is paying tribute to Northwest Ohio's American Idol corn. The Butterfly House in Whitehouse has widdled the 2010 Corn Maze into the spitting image of Ottawa County's Crystal Bowersox. The 16-acre maze features Bowersox's portrait, an image of her with her guitar, a flower and her named etched in corn.
Jim and I worked the I-LYA Booth at the Mid-American Boat Show & Fishing Show Friday Night. I enjoyed it. They had some New and Interesting Features...see the link below. I especially enjoyed the Battle-of-Lake-Erie Bicentennial Exhibit, featuring 1813 Re-enactors, a long boat, and 5 full size cannons from the movie, Masters and Commanders, and the musical and story telling talents of Tom Castle. I couldn't miss it, as the I-LYA Exhibit was directly adjacent to the 1813 stage. Tom Castle will be there all weekend and Monday. Excellent! I always go gaga for the Classic Wooden Boats located in two different exhibits. I missed the new Swampmaster Gator wrestling show. But, I caught some of Alex Blevins show at the Frosty's and Round House Bar. He's a great talent. Drinks a beer and set a spell. The Hobie Dealers had 2 exhibits at the show with their Mirage Drive Kayaks...I want one of these so we can pedal our *** around Lake Erie and the wetlands of Ottawa County and light enough to throw up on the ...
The January 2012 Point in Time count identified 335 homeless men, women and children in Ottawa County. Do you think homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing programs have helped decrease that number? How have the economic conditions in West Michigan affected homelessness?
Laid to rest today was Earl Johnson, a quiet yet significant part of Oak Harbor's history. Mr. Johnson died the other day at 101 years of age. He was the scorekeeper for Oak Harbor sports, specifically basketball, for many many years.. He was a principal/teacher at Genoa, then the same role at Oak Harbor before becoming Superintendent of Ottawa County schools. He needs to be thought of as a servant for the better of kids. I met him late in life but saw the results of his service.. RIP Mr Johnson. A lot of people are thankful for your guidance in their lives!!!

Wishing you a Happy New Year Outgoing Chair, Liddy Olszewski I hope the New Year finds you in good health and brings you all that you hope for. The highlight of 2012 for many of us was the re-election of our President Barack Obama and Senator Debbie Stabenow. 2012 however was a difficult year for Michigan due to the short sighted, vindictive and partisan legislation that came out of Lansing. The Republican dominated legislature pushed through 282 bills in the lame duck session following the November election. We still have much work to do in Michigan to counter all the bad legislation that was passed under the Snyder administration. Unfortunately our Ottawa County legislators in Lansing voted along party lines and are a big part of the problem. We do have West Michigan legislators fighting for us. I am proud of West Michigan Democrats including Representative Brandon Dillon (Grand Rapids) and Representative Marcia Hovey-Wright (Muskegon) for standing up for working people, women, public education ...
Chopper - Boxer/Great Dane (mix) Ottawa County - Port Clinton, OH (bs) BEEN IN SHELTER SINCE 2010!!! Such a sad story of owner betrayal but we can help this guy's life turn around!! There has got to be someone who will make this handsome and loving guy their best friend again! "“Chopper” is my name and I am very regal; and I can sit very pretty!! I was adopted from the shelter in 2007 but my owner left and brought me back April 2010 (at age 4) ~ broke my heart, I was very upset and laid in my kennel and wouldn’t pay attention to anyone. Why? I know that I wasn’t trained but no one told me what they wanted me to do… I’m certainly not stupid. Just ask all the girls here, they’ll tell you that I am extremely bright and affectionate once I get to know you. I want to meet all the new people that come in to see the dogs; I get SO EXCITED when someone comes through the doors I jump on the cage barking “PICK ME - PICK ME!!” The girls know I scare people and they leave because of this, I don’t ...

Hearing set for suspect in Ottawa County church bomb plot
January's Chair's Corner from Outgoing Chair Liddy Olszweski: I’ve had the pleasure of serving as the OCDP chair for the last six years and appreciate all the progressive-minded people I have worked with along the way. Thank you for your support and assistance as we worked together to build the Democratic Party in Ottawa County. I especially want to thank my husband Mike for his support of me and the time I invested doing party business. It has been a thrill being part of the team that made history electing Barack Obama, not once but twice. I had many memorable experiences that I will forever treasure, so thank you for the opportunity to serve as your chair. I remain fully committed to the work of the Democratic Party because it represents my values, my beliefs and my hopes for the future of our country. I have great confidence that our new Executive Committee and officers will do an excellent job leading the OCDP during the next few years. Thank you to Doug Zylstra for taking over the leader- ship of o ...
