Vehicles collide at Main and Muskegon St.


N-Accident-Main-and-MuskegonA Cedar Springs woman was hurt when the SUV she was driving collided with a van Wednesday morning in Cedar Springs.

According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Jeanne Cullum, 66, was traveling eastbound on Muskegon Street about 10:30 a.m. September 4, when she entered the intersection at Main Street and struck the side of a Dodge van that was traveling northbound on Main Street.

The driver of the van, Nacey Allen Emmorey, 57, of Cedar Springs, told police the light was green when he entered the intersection. Cullum told police she did not recall what color the light was.

Emmorey complained of pain in his elbow and soreness in his shoulder, but was not transported to the hospital. Cullum was transported to the hospital due to the air bag deployment and neck pain. She was cited for disregarding a traffic control device.

Vintage postcard of yesteryear


By Judy Reed

Lori Ostrom, of Nelson Township, saw one of the old postcards we printed a few weeks ago and sent us a copy of the old postcard her grandpa gave her last summer (printed above).  It appears to be of a village gathering or celebration of some type. The John Beucus Hardware store at 59 Main St. can clearly be seen at the corner of Ash and Main. (This was the NAPA building that burned down March 7, 2009.) The Beucus store opened there about 1900. In the foreground you can see a band, possibly the Cedar Springs Band. There are horses and carts and no cars, so it must be early 1900s. If anyone knows what event this photo shows give us a call at 696-3655 or shoot us an email at news@cedarspringspost.com.

The backside of the postcard had some notations by Mrs. Margaret Hale, Lori Ostrom’s great-grandmother. “She used to be the egg lady of Cedar Springs,” wrote Lori. “I’m wondering if anyone remembers her and could tell me some stories?”

Lori said that Margaret’s son Bob still lives on some of the family’s homestead land on Shaner Avenue, and she does, too. “When Bob built my house a few years ago, we had the fire department come in for training and burn down the old, old homestead and outbuilding, those same outbuildings that housed all the chickens Margaret Hale raised to provide eggs,” she said.

If anyone has info for Lori, send us an email at the one listed above and we’ll get it to her, or give us a call and we’ll get you connected.
