Sand Lake appoints new president

“As a council we have not made a determination yet,” she said. “We did hire Kent County to patrol an extra 8 hours a week. We are going to just let it sit for now while we investigate other options while we get through this litigation process.” She said that they are paying $82/hour to Kent County for the extra hours. Quinlan explained that the real catalyst behind suspending the police department was that Sgt. Brandow and Officer Andrews came to the Public Safety Committee and said they had other interests for the summer, and that Brandow couldn’t work after May 1, and Andrews could only work every other week.

Varsity boys baseball take one, lose two to Lowell

In game 1 of the three-game series, the Red Hawks ran into a tough left-hander from Lowell. He struck out 12 and walked 9. Caden Vandenberg managed one single late in the game, but the Hawks were led at the plate by Payton Newman who had 2 singles and a triple. Seth Biggs (0-1) pitched a great game, though the defense behind him committed 7 errors. Biggs struck out 2, but walked 0 in the 10-4 loss. All ten of the Red Arrow runs were unearned.

BBB: avoid Notre Dame donation scams

“Scammers are opportunists, and they will take advantage of whatever is in the news,” said Art Taylor, president and CEO of BBB Wise Giving Alliance (Give.org). “We expect to see Notre Dame fundraising appeals on social media and crowdfunding sites. Some will be from well-intentioned people who are not directly involved with the cathedral, but some may be from scammers. BBB Wise Giving Alliance is urging people to ‘wait to donate’ until an official rebuilding fund is established.”
