The All New “Retro” Shasta Airflyte Arrives at TerryTown RV Superstore

The All New “Retro” Shasta Airflyte Arrives at TerryTown RV Superstore

The introduction of an ordinary new travel trailer model, while a big deal to RV enthusiasts, usually wouldn’t be considered newsworthy. But then, the 2015 Shasta Airflyte “Reissue” is no ordinary new travel trailer. The Airflyte is a brand-new faithful reproduction of Shasta’s 1961 design, from the birch-paneled interior with lantern-style LED light fixture to the distinctive canned-ham exterior profile right down to the wide whitewall tires. TerryTown RV Superstore, located on Division Avenue south of 68th Street, is proud to announce the arrival of the first models and welcomes customers to travel back in time as they travel the country.

Visitors to TerryTown’s showroom can’t walk by the Airflyte without poking their heads in the door. The trailer has been the subject of considerable Facebook buzz.

Students with list of names threaten attack at Kelloggsville HS

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police are investigating threats made against students at Kelloggsville High School.

Wyoming Department of Public Safety says the investigation continues, pending review by the Kent County Juvenile Court. The teens have been turned over to their parents.

School of Choice for Teachers

School of Choice for Teachers

Thanks to Schools of Choice programs in Michigan, students are afforded the opportunity to choose a school environment that best meets their learning needs. These programs also offer our state’s educators opportunities to teach in environments that are best suited for them. Just as some teachers flourish in a traditional school, there are those who prefer teaching at a virtual public school, such as Michigan Connections Academy, the school where I teach.

I work with an incredible team of teachers – they are state-certified, specially trained in online learning, recognized as Highly Qualified under the guidelines of the No Child Left Behind Act—and live in Michigan. In fact, even though we teach in a virtual school, more than 60 teachers travel to the school’s office in Lansing every day to lead online instruction for more than 1,700 students across Michigan in grades kindergarten through 12.
