Do you love classic and vintage cars? Then you don’t want to miss out on two great opportunities to indulge that passion!

The Cedar Springs Historical Society is holding their annual car show this weekend, Saturday, July 29, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the parking lot between Morley Park and Skinner Field. Special guests this year include the Michigan State Police and their special black and gold cruiser, designed to celebrate their 100th anniversary of service. The car resembles the department’s iconic 1937 Ford Model 74 patrol car.

The Kent County Sheriff Department will also be on hand with their mobile command bus. The bus will be open for display and the operator will be available to answer your questions.

The car show helps the museum provide free family programs throughout the year. For details, click here, to download ad.

The second opportunity is to visit the Cedar Springs Community Library, and see the painting of an old Packard (shown in the photo above). It’s one of two new installations hanging at the library as part of the program “Artists, Authors, and You!” The painting is by Tim Hindenach.

The library is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to noon.

Artists, Authors & You!


Alice Norton-Powell

By Claudia Mabie

There are many fun and wonderful things for you at the new Cedar Springs Library! Artists, Authors & You! debuted at the Grand Opening. It brings an ever-changing art exhibit to the beautiful fireplace area. Two local artists who premiered this program are Alice Norton-Powell and Tim Hindenach.

The piece on display by Norton-Powell is titled Jezebel: In Her Easter Bonnet. The 22-inch x 22-inch acrylic on paper was completed in 2012. Norton-Powell has enjoyed enriching her craft by participating in classes and workshops for several years. In 2013 she was recognized locally with an exhibit and reception honoring her talents. In her Artist Statement she says, “I want to tell the world, through my art, that reality is sometimes vastly overrated. From ‘the cradle to the grave,’ I’ve chosen to make my life a dance!  And I want my artwork to dance a wondrous dance! I want it to have mystery and bubble up from joyousness. I want it to tickle my inner well-springs of whimsy and humor…”

Tim Hindenach

Contrasting Norton-Powell’s work is a digital photo on metallic paper by Hindenach titled Gum Drops. The 16-inch x 30-inch work, completed in 2007, draws the viewer to move closer and closer in order to absorb its crisp details and lighthearted subject. In 1972, while in the Philippines, Hindenach purchased his first Nikon camera. In his Artist Statement he says: “Wildlife, landscape, still life—and the curious effect of time on them all—inspires me to always be ready to take the next shot. There is a need in me to see how many ways I can capture ‘the view’—all the everyday things I see—the beauty of nature, the happiness and sadness in faces and the effects of light on objects. I love to print on metallic paper, metal and glass because they create an unexpected vibrance.”

The Artists, Authors & You! program will offer the community new works of art  each quarter of the year.  Please stop in and see these works of art from people in our own community. The Library is located at 107 N. Main St., Cedar Springs, and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

If you’re an artist who is interested in participating in the program, or if you own a piece of art you’d like to share with the community, please send your information to:

Sun shines on Red Flannel 2016

What started out as a rainy, gloomy, Red Flannel Festival on Friday evening turned into a beautiful Red Flannel Day Saturday.

It was sprinkling during the Firefighter’s parade Friday evening, and rained Friday night and early Saturday morning. But the weather cleared by noon and people came out in droves to climb aboard the Red Flannel Express and experience what Red Flannel Day 2016 had to offer.

People partied into the evening, as there were several options for live music and adult beverages to keep people in town for the evening, including the Red Flannel Festival’s Grand Lodge, the Cedar Springs Brewing Company’s Festival tent, the American Legion, and other local pubs/taverns.

A big thanks to Tim Hindenach for the photo of the Red Flannel Queen, and Randy Tate for the photo of the crowd on the street.

We continue to get eagle photos from area readers. This week we received clearer photos of an eagle sighting at Pine Lake that we ran last week (thank you Tim Hindenach) and a new sighting at Sand Lake. Randy Johnson took his photos on Friday morning, April 22. “I was able to get a few reasonable photos (low light/foggy conditions) from the north shore of Sand Lake, of this beautiful bird,” he wrote. Thank you, Randy!

We have gotten photos from Algoma, Solon, Nelson, and now Sand Lake. The Post asked Ranger Steve Mueller about whether there were now quite a few eagles here, or whether these could be the same birds.

Eagle numbers have increased significantly during the last several decades due to the Clean the Water and Clean Air Acts and the discontinuance of chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides like DDT,” explained Mueller. “It is likely that some eagle pictures may be the same individuals by different people because eagles are wide ranging.”

Eagles can often be found near bodies of water, since fish make up over half of their diet. They also consume other birds, mammals, and small prey.

Do you have wildlife photos you’d like to send us? Email them to news@cedarspringspost.com, along with your contact info and some information about the photo (what’s in it, where it was taken, etc.) We will print as space allows.
