LOL. I wondered if any of the early opening tracks would run this weekend. I still have 8-12 inches of snow in my back yard and a four foot drift in front of my house (formed by the weird way the wind whips around the village snow fence just across the street. When the wind comes out of the north and straight off Momma Lake Superior, we can get ten inches of snow on my porch in half an hour!

As of February 1st, Jeff Dice is the new owner. It was in the Ionia Sentinel-Standard back in early February. I'll see if I can find it. From what I know, Dice has his hands in a lot of businesses, and although I haven't met him yet, he appears to be a decent sort of guy.

That didn't take long. This article is from M-Live, a site that used to be good, but has 'gone to the dark side' of news reporting.

Sorry Rich, I misunderstood your question. I see this article in the Greenville Daily Snooze out this morning.
