While many residents are enjoying the warm, spring-like temperatures we have experienced over the last week, some of the area events have suffered. The 2017 Michigan Winter Fest “SNOW” extravaganza, which was to take place on West Street in Cedar Springs last weekend, February 17-18, was cancelled due to the lack of snow. The event, billed as Michigan’s largest snow festival, would’ve included snowmobile sno-cross, cross country, and drag racing. It is the second year in a row the event was cancelled due to weather.

Last weekend was also the DNR’s free ice fishing weekend. However, the ice was thin on most lakes, and there were 9-1-1 calls of ATV’s or people falling through the ice. Please be safe out there and stay off the ice!

Best Lips contest cancelled

We will all be left in suspense this year on who has the best lips in Cedar Springs. That’s because after 22 years of showcasing lips of all shapes and sizes, the Post is calling it quits on the “Best Lips” contest.

It wasn’t really our decision. You—the readers—made the decision for us. We are cancelling the contest because of lack of participation.

It’s been a fun 22 years, though. Publisher Lois Allen talked about the days when she used to go out and solicit people to enter—even men. And she would tell them that “so and so said they would do it if you would” and so they would do it. And then she’d get the other person to do it by telling them the same thing, too!

And who could forget the year we had the impostor lips? We published what we thought was then Cedar Springs Public School’s Finance Director Frank Verhoven’s lips—only to find out the next week when he called that he didn’t send any in—someone was impersonating him! So we did a follow up story letting people know we were taking DNA from the lips sample and sending it to the FBI. A lot of people got a laugh out of it, though I’m not sure Frank did.

It’s been a good ride, and we thank all of you who entered over the years, and those who helped us choose the best lips these last few years by voting for your favorites. Now use those lips to go give someone a great big kiss!
