Three Rivers School officials catch youngsters with Marijuana candies


THREE RIVERS (WKZO) --   Here’s a new one, it was at least forThree Rivers School officials when they discovered two students with marijuana laced candy. 

The green hard candies can apparently be made to look like a lozenge or a lollipop. 

Apparently Three Rivers Police got an anonymous  tip and confronted the students who were at a Pep Rally.   They claim they got it from another student at the school.

They are investigating.




GRANDVILLE (WKZO) -- An Ottawa County Man has been given 1-1/2 to 10-years in prison for 2nd degree child abuse.

Police say Justin McIntyre became frustrated because his 5 week old baby boy would not stop crying and violently shook little Bently McIntyre, likely causing permanent brain damage.   McIntyre apologized in court.  The abuse occurred last August at their home in Ferrysburg.   The infant spent the next three weeks in the hospital, and they still aren’t sure how much damage has been done.



UNDATED (WKZO) --    Remember the old saying ‘if you don’t like the weather inMichigan, wait 5-minutes’.  It appears we all may be about to live that first hand.

National Weather Service Meteorlogist Janis Laurens {Yanus} says it’s an exciting time to be in his shoes. He says we could be near the record for high temperatures today, but he says enjoy the warm weather while its here because it won’t last.  By Thursday he says we will be back with highs in the teens getting buried under lake effect snow.   He says it may be extreme but it won’t be severe. Most of the severe weather connected to this weather system is happening far to the south.

The roads will be clear this morning, if you can see them because the combination of warm southerly air blowing over all this snow on the ground is likely to be scattered patches of dense fog.  Most of the lower Peninsula is under a dense fog advisory until 11 this morning.

Not exactly beach weather, unless you are a duck or a walrus.



PENNFIELDTOWNSHIP(WKZO) --   A Boil Water Advisory has been lifted along Park and Capital inPennfieldTownshipafter tests showed the water was safe to drink.  A water main break along Capital late last week required repairs and there were concerns that it might have introduced contaminants to the system.

  He is getting a $150-thousand settlement fromEmmettTownshipand the City ofSpringfieldafter he claimed that Police broke into his home and roughed him up in July of 2011.   Jeffrey Cary sued in Federal Court, claiming his rights had been violated.  He claimed police initially came to his home to arrest his son.  When he objected to the rough treatment the young man received, he claims officers forced their way into his home and assaulted him.  The settlement was agreed to as long as neither of the governmental units had to admit responsibility.  No officers were ever disciplined following the incident.


DETROIT (WKZO) --   The CDC says people in five states, have been sickened by salmonella linked to the recall last week of 1,000 pounds of  ground beef made in the Detroit area.

About 16 people have gotten sick from eating raw meat most of them in Michigan, which Public Health spokeswoman Melaney Arnold says is never a good idea.

Two people inIllinoishave been hospitalized due to the outbreak.  There are also cases being reported inIowa,Wisconsin,MichiganandArizona.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, the outbreak is related to the recall of more than one thousand pounds of ground beef from Jouni Meats and Gab Halal Foods, both based inMichigan. 


GRAND RAPIDS(WKZO) --   Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth will not pursue charges against a woman who shot and killed her boyfriend on Christmas Day.  Forsyth believes Taneesha Inez Smith had "ample reason" to fear Darwin DeMarcus Weathers, based on previous, violent domestic incidents.  Initially, police intended to charge Smith with felony homicide. 


DECATUR (WKZO) --    A Decatur Police Officer made a life and death decision early yesterday.   It’s just a good thing that he wasn’t that good a shot. He responded to a domestic dispute onBronson St.of a man making threats on the phone to anyone who intervened,  and found him walking away down the road. When the officer confronted him, the man threatened to shoot him and pointed a gun at the officer, who responded as trained and fired at the suspect.  He missed.  The suspect hit the deck and dropped the pistol which turned out to be a B.B.gun.  After a brief scuffle, the 23-year-old was cuffed and taken into custody.   No names were released. There will be a routine shooting review, but the suspect is lucky to be alive.
