Tom and Claudia Mabie recently enjoyed a trip to Spain with Tom’s sister, Mary, and her husband Jack Eldred. They took this photo, with a copy of the Post, at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The Alhambra was established by the Nasrid dynasty in 1237 and experienced many occupations over the centuries. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

The two couples were celebrating Mary’s retirement after 31 years of teaching. Jack and Mary are both 1965 graduates of Cedar Springs High School. They currently reside in New Jersey.

Delores and Vernon Eldred


When God walked through the Garden of Life, on December 21st and 22nd 2010, He saw two mature beautiful flowers. God had been nurturing these flowers since they were buds, in 1918 and 1919. God knew they had weathered many storms and had grown toward the sunlight of His love. God called to them, “Delores and Vernon, I want you to be a part of My heavenly kingdom, where joy and beauty can never fade.” Each one answered, “Yes, Lord, take me.”

Home destroyed in fire


A Solon Township family lost their home Monday when fire ripped through this home in White Creek Country Estates.

Two children managed to escape before a fire consumed their mobile home Monday in White Creek County Estates in Solon Township.

Cedar Springs Public Schools did not have school Monday (it was mid-winter break), and a 14-year-old girl was home with her three-year-old sister when she heard the smoke alarm go off. She said the fire started somewhere in the kitchen.

The call came in just after noon, and Solon Township responded with Cedar Springs Fire Department assisting at the scene. The fire spread quickly through the home of Troy Kaltenberg, located on Chestnut Drive. Kaltenberg was at work at the time.

“I was standing out here just a half hour ago and didn’t see anything,” said a neighbor, Richard Pawson. “Those old trailers go up fast.”

There were no injuries, but the two children were treated at the hospital for smoke inhalation and released.

Solon Fire Chief Joyce Vandermey confirmed that the fire did start in the kitchen near the toaster, but the reason was unknown. Vandermey said they were on the scene until about 5 p.m. investigating the fire, and went back on Tuesday to continue the investigation.

The home is a complete loss, and reportedly was not insured.

According to park owner Russ Eldred, this was only the second fire since he built the park in 1971.
