Local residents killed in Livingston County crash

HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (Lansing State Journal) - A third victim in a Sunday fatal crash in Howell Township has died from her injuries.
Sheriff Bob Bezotte said 49-year-old Susan Bloomstine, of Wyoming, Mich., died from her injuries during the night at the University of Michigan Medical Center.

Also killed in the 5:21 p.m. crash were 80-year-old Charles Wright, of Wyoming, and George Tissen, 54, of Fowlerville.
Bezotte said witnesses indicated that Tissen, who was driving a 2002 Ford Ranger eastbound on Interstate 96, went into the median, traveled about 300 yards in the opposite direction and crossed to the westbound lanes where his vehicle collided with a 2007 Ford Taurus in the center lane, just west of M-59.
Police speculate Tissen experienced a medical event. "Witnesses said they couldn't see him driving," Bezotte said. "It was like he was lying down in the seat."

Silver Line add-on, just one perk of 2011 millage

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- A new bus line for Grand Rapids transportation is set to open up thanks to the millage that passed in 2011.

The tax is generating $15 million each year, and will do so for the next five years. The tax plan will provide more funding for the Rapid Transit System services.

The new Silver Line would run down Division Street from the Grand Rapids Central Business District to 60th Street.

Monday night, the City of Wyoming is holding a "Walkability Meeting" for the public. It will start at 5:30 p.m. in the Godwin Heights High School auditorium. Organizers will be on hand to explain the plan and answer any questions the public might have.

If all goes according to plan, the high-speed Silver Line bus service will open in two years.

Football players tackle Alzheimer's

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) - The Wyoming Wolves varsity football team spent Friday afternoon away from the practice field working on something that has nothing to do with football. The team wore purple jerseys as they visited Brookcrest Christian Rehabilitation & Life Center in Grandville to meet residents and make contact with patients suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia.

"We were approached by some parents who've had dementia and Alzheimer's in their family," says first-year head coach Tom White. "It's a crippling disease. We're a very family-oriented community. A lot of the kids, when we asked them if they're familiar (with Alzheimer's), a lot of the kids are familiar through family connections. In that way, it's united these kids and they all understand and it's something that they're all probably going to have to relate to sometime in their life."
