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. The campaign raises money to assist families in Ottawa County that have received a shut-off notice from their utility company. With this winter’s long bouts of cold weather as well as a shortage of propane, the event was especially timely. “I understand the hardship of being without heat,” said Representative Bill Huizenga (R) 2nd District. “I represent people from this area all the way up to Ludington, and many of them are having problems getting propane…I am doing everything I can to resolve that issue.” Bill Raymond, Executive Director, Ottawa County Community Action Agency / Michigan Works! said, “You’re going to look back on this winter as being one of those you remember forever – the snowiest, the coldest. Real winter. That’s what this event is all ...

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. If anyone is unfamiliar with Lamont, it is one of the most picturesque and quaint little towns. Seems l ...

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.

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 ...

WHITEHOUSE, OHIO 6-10-10 -- A seasonal Toledo-area attraction is paying tribute to Northwest Ohio's American Idol corn.

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.

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 ...

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 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.

Warnings Shelburne - Mansfield - Northern Dufferin County 4:59 AM EST Monday 10 December 2012 Freezing rain warning for Shelburne - Mansfield - Northern Dufferin County issued First significant bout of winter weather expected. A weather system tracking across Southern Ontario today continues to deliver winterlike weather. Freezing rain continues to affect much of Eastern Ontario. An initial round of freezing rain ended earlier last night. But a fresh area of freezing rain is now affecting a large swath of Eastern Ontario. The freezing rain will likely end this morning in most areas as temperatures slowly rise above the freezing mark. The only exception is along the Ottawa Valley where it will change to some rain this afternoon. Motorists are urged to be cautious during this first widespread mix of wintery weather. Untreated roads and sidewalks are likely slippery due to the freezing rain.
Ottawa County Commissioners need some phone calls and some reminders that this is 2012 and the time for this barbaric practice to end was decades ago.

Request to temporarily close season denied by Ottawa YARMOUTH — Several lobster buyers got together Sunday to plead with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to temporarily close southwestern Nova Scotia’s lobster season.Buyers asked for a 72-hour closure to stem the huge flow of lobster being landed.“That’s unheard of,” said Marc Surette of the Nova Scotia Fish Packers Association. Fisheries and Oceans Canada would not close the season. “There’s five million pounds already on the market, and that’s just in the first few days,” Surette said Tuesday.“And the lobster stream just keeps coming and coming and coming.”The six-month lobster season opened last week with as many as 1,700 boats taking part in an area that extends from Cole Harbour, down the South Shore and around Yarmouth to Digby.Lobster landings in southwestern Nova Scotia during the first few days of the season are up 25 to 30 per cent over the same period last year, said Surette.“There’s too many (lobster). They have to get rid ...

The Ottawa County Sheriff's office has been investigating several complaints recently regarding panhandling. The Sheriff's office has identified three individuals that appear to be working as a group to solicit money and goods from the general public. The Sheriff's office would like the citizens of Georgetown township to know that the individuals are not from this area. The need is questionable at best. These individuals have been found in possession of cellular phones and large sums of cash. They have been observed being picked up and dropped off by a new car. The Sheriff's office would like to encourage citizens that want to help the homeless to make donations to an established charity or church.

Graveside Service for Cheri Ann Rowe October 8, 2012 11 am Loma Vista We’ve come here today to pay tribute, to pay honor, to Cheri Ann Rowe. Your presence demonstrates your love and respect for her and your love for her family members and for one another. We also come today to celebrate her life. That in no way ignores the grief you experience due to Cher’s dying. Grief is a God-given capacity we have within that helps us deal with loss. It sometimes causes tremendous sorrow, anger, guilt (the coulda, woulda, shoulda stuff). Understand that people say and do things when experiencing grief that they otherwise would not. So give each other some room, be gracious with each other, and allow each one to grieve at their own pace. She was born to Marion Wallace and Fred McFessel on January 21, 1947 in Ottawa County, Ohio. Oak Harbor is the small town in rural Ohio where she grew up and everybody knows everybody. So for Cher and her older brothers Mike and Fred and her younger brother and sister, ...
