The Post travels to California


N-Post-travels-Orange-County-Thornton

The Cedar Springs Post traveled to California with the Thornton family, where they celebrated the marriage of Tommy Thornton (2004 Cedar Springs grad) to Inge Hergenrather. The couple resides in San Clemente, California, where Tommy is an Orange County Sheriff Deputy and USMC Reservist, and Inge is an events manager.

Joining in the fun were Tommy’s parents, Tom and Sara; brothers Austin (2007 CSHS grad), and Judson (2010 CSHS grad); nephew Carson; and Cedar Springs High School friends Brandon Bauer and Mike Bigney (both 2004 grads).

The couple was married in the same church as Tom and Sara—South Shores Church, Laguna Niguel, California.

Thanks so much for taking us with you, and best of luck to the happy couple!

A tornado in Cedar Springs?


N-tornado-flamingos
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? A large ice cream cone falling from the sky? No—it definitely looks like a tornado above the Post. Warm windy weather brought rain, lightning, and thunder to Cedar Springs Wednesday evening, and mother nature dropped this little gem from the sky. “I can’t believe it,” said one onlooker. “The last time we saw one of those here was in the 1970s. It must be something special to bring it this far.”
The tornado did a funny little dance as it lit on the roof, then began changing colors. “It’s like a disco ball!” someone shouted, as it turned green, then red, then pink.
We’ve heard of storms dropping frogs from the sky, but what happened next, still amazes us. The tornado hovered over the front lawn and shot pink flamingoes into our yard! “We’ve never seen anything like it,” said local weatherman Ollie Williams. Ollie had predicted earlier in the day that “It’s gon’ rain.”
Once it dropped the pink flamingoes, the tornado dissipated, leaving no trace of its presence except the flamingoes. “I guess we’ve been flocked!” said publisher Lois Allen.
We hope to have it cleaned up by April Fools Day!

Post travels out west


N-Post-Travels-out-west1-Ovokaitys

N-Post-travels-out-west2-OvokaitysTom and Donna Ovokaitys and their four children—Breeann, Kayla, Ellie, and Jared—recently took a 10-day family vacation together out west, traveling 4,200 miles in a rental van. And the Post traveled with them!

“We started the sight seeing in Colorado with a Cog Railway trip to Pike’s Peak and then hiking around Garden of the gods,” said Donna. “We learned of the Colorado incline (one mile straight up the side of Pikes Peak) and Breeann could not resist! She made it in 29:28 and had sore muscles the next day to prove it.” They visited Great Sand Dunes National Park, then headed to Mesa Verde where Donna needed to deal with her fear of untethered heights and small enclosed places, while walking around  Balcony House and Cliff Palace. “This ended up being my highlight!” she said. They then went to Four Corners National Monument where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah all meet. Close by was the beautiful Painted Desert and Petrified Forest, where some of the family were wondering at first “where is the forest?”

“Our next stop was at the Grand Canyon, where the views were fabulous and we learned not to blindly trust the GPS to navigate the way out of the park,” continued Donna. “We did not drive into the Grand Canyon on a 2 track!” They then visited Hoover Dam, where the temperature was 103 and theyall agreed that they love Michigan weather. Their final stop was to go White Water Rafting on Clear Creek in Colorado.

“None of us had ever gone rafting prior to this event, but there were no beginner rapids for us to experience as a result of the snow melt being extreme at that time of the year,” explained Donna. “So, we went for a ride on class 3 and 4 rapids in 36 degree water. This was, hands down, the family favorite. It was only about a 45-minute trip, but there was a new thrill every other second!”

After that they started the long trip home. “We were all tired and ready to end the vacation, but the memories will be with us forever,” she said.

The Post travels to China


N-Post-travels-to-China-Vanderlip

Kaleigh Vanderlip, of Coral, Michigan, traveled with a Post to Yantai, China, in May, as part of Montcalm Community College’s study abroad program. Three teachers and nine students, including Vanderlip, went to China for a week. They also spent one night in South Korea.

“While in China, we learned about their culture and we even got to do group presentations with some of the Chinese students,” she explained. “We did some traveling as well, and saw some amazingly beautiful sights.” She said the picture was taken from her dorm room at the Shandong Institute of Business and Technology.

Vanderlip, who graduated from New Beginnings High School in 2008, graduated from MCC this year with an Associates Degree in Liberal Studies.
