Theatre students at Rogers High School are busy preparing for this year's musical, On the Town. The actors and musicians involved have made tremendous progress in rehearsals so far, and everyone is looking forward to performing.

On the Town is the story of three sailors with a 24 hour pass in the New York City of the 1940's. They have only one day to explore the city, but soon decide to split up in order to find the lovely "Miss Turnstiles." Each of the three meets someone during their quest, and the whole group sets out to take in the night life of New York City.Misunderstandings and mistakes follow our sailors every step of the way, and a great time is had by all.

Wyoming Michigan residents warned of Water Service Offer

Wyoming Michigan residents warned of Water Service Offer

Recently, residents of the City of Wyoming may have received a letter from HomeServe, an independent home repair company, regarding purchasing water service line coverage to protect them in case of a water service line repair or replacement. This coverage is completely unnecessary because Wyoming residents are not responsible for these costs and residents are advised to disregard this letter.

Saturday afternoon, police responded to a domestic assault complaint at a home on 29th Street near Byron Center Avenue. Officers were told the suspect had a gun. However, when they arrived, the victim had already left. Unsure if the suspect was still inside, police surrounded the home.

The suspect was later found at a second home in the 3000 block of Waterchase Way. The 27-year-old man will be formally charged with felonious assault on Monday.

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-A police standoff that lasted for more than four hours is over.

"America's Most Wanted" profiles West Michigan murder

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - The family of  Ryan Pollok, a West Michigan man murdered more than four years ago, is hoping another mention on "America's Most Wanted" will lead to his killers.

"They have the full national and international reach," says Doug Pollok, Ryan's father. "Unfortunately, it hasn't been successful for us yet."

Friday night, the program profiled Pollok's case for the second time since his murder in September of 2007. Pollok, 22, was leaving a party in Wyoming at the same time police believe Juan Reyes and his brother Eric Santiago were chasing an enemy gang member.  Investigators say Reyes fired wildly and killed Pollok, a man he had never met.

Investigators believe the brothers escaped to Texas, California or Mexico.  Relatives and friends may be helping them hide.
