Land weighs possible run for governor

I'm crossing my fingers and praying hard that Hoekstra decides to run for Gov. in '10. He knows what it takes to turn this crummy state around. He'd be the best man for the job, and if he DOES run, I can almost guarantee that you'll find republicans and democrats voting for him.  (Dec 17, 2008 | post #42)

A surprise gift of gas at the pump

Why must you bring politics into this????? I know several democrats that do good things for people. Just see this as a good act by a generous person. leave the politics out of it. I think it's a great things what the woman did. I'd love to see it more and more.  (May 16, 2008 | post #27)

Trading four wheels in for two

Just thinking the same thing. =0) My father has driven a Honda all the years that he's been riding and he's never regretted it. And as soon as I can get into a class and get my endorsement, his baby girl will be following in his footsteps. As far as motorcycles go, I will buy Honda and only Honda (and I'll be more than willing to pull up with my bike and help the poor guys whose Harleys are broke down on the side of the road). =0)  (May 6, 2008 | post #17)

Wal-mart Supercenter grand opening Wednesday

I'm not a huge fan of regular walmarts, but I'm actually looking forward to this one opening up. Whenever they open a supercenter, it seems to stay cleaner longer and they seem to take better care of it. Also, I used to work for Meijer and I'm almost to the point that I refuse to shop there. After learning about all the crap that goes on in that company, I'd rather spend my money elsewhere-especially somewhere where they actually take care of their employees.  (May 6, 2008 | post #21)

Gas prices hit new high...again

To Hurley & GR Mich... http://www.michiga,1607,7 -127-1627_46351_46 352---,00.html I thought this link would help... It is possible to get your endorsement without the 2 day training course, but many motorcyclists would encourage you to take the course, that way you're not a danger to yourself, and other drivers and motorcyclists around you.  (Apr 30, 2008 | post #79)

U.S. Marshals capture Michigan fugitive after 32 years

I can see why so many people think that she should serve her sentence, but at the same time (like many others have said) she hasn't been in trouble in 32 years, so why not just let her go back to CA and do community service...put her on probabtion even, but I don't think she should have to go back to prison. If she had killed someone or commited some horrendous crime, then yeah- she deserves to go back, but that's not what happened. Let her move on with her life.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #25)

Like many other times that you post, you are WRONG!! Obviously you haven't been doing your homework, instead (like usual) you just ASSume that you're right and then post things that make you look like a fool so, because I felt generous, I did your what the IRS says about "having to pay it back" on next year's taxes...And maybe next time, you should really KNOW what you're talking about... <br/> /newsroom/article/ 0,,id=179181, ml Q. Is my Stimulus Payment taxable? A. No. You will not owe tax on your payment when you file your 2008 federal income tax return. But you should keep a copy of the IRS letter you receive later this year listing the amount of your payment. Q. If my Stimulus Payment is not going to affect my 2008 tax refund or increase the tax I owe next year, why is it I need to retain the letter that lists how much I received? A. In the event you do not qualify for the full amount on your 2007 return but you do on your 2008 return, you will need to have the letter as a record of the amount you previously received. [New 4/11/08] Q. Will the payment I receive in 2008 reduce my 2008 refund or increase the amount I owe for 2008? A. No, the Stimulus Payment will not reduce your refund or increase the amount you owe when you file your 2008 return <br/> It's almost to the bottom of the page under "other questions."  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #27)

VanVels sentenced to life in prison

THANK GOODNESS!! The sad thing part to this story though is the fact that we the taxpayers will have to pay for the dirtbag until he dies... It's unfortunate that we don't have the death penalty.  (Apr 16, 2008 | post #4)

3 teens burn dog alive

Let me start by saying that this act was absolutely horrendous!! I agree with the person that said "they need a good beating and THEN Jesus." Unfortunately, because they're so "young" they won't get much more than a slap on the wrist...I'm sure... Now in response to the post I'm replying to... First: it was a fellow topix poster that posted the link for us to read, not WZZM. Second: they're not going to report on Kent County because it's a news station out of ATLANTA GEORGIA!!! Pay a little closer attention before you speak and you won't look so ridiculous.  (Apr 11, 2008 | post #24)
