There is nothing finer to witness on a Tuesday night than an intricate ballet of procedural dancing. As it is said: It’s cheaper than a movie. In order to ensure all bases were covered, the Greenville City Council approved five motions related to the Forest View Development Special Assessment District during Tuesday’s meeting.
June 3 is a day which will be forever etched into the mind of Lee Gilman.
It was the day he lost the use of his legs.
Recently, Flo’s Pizzeria and Ristorante took a hit on plans to open a new restaurant in downtown Greenville. The company applied to the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

When it comes to dedication to the community, few companies have been doing it as long as Aga Marvel. The manufacturer of high-end kitchen appliances has been operating in Greenville for 123 years. “We’re the oldest refrigeration manufacturer in the United States,” Aga Marvel President Brad Stauffer said. “We started in 1892 right here in Greenville about five blocks away from where we are now, right on Ranney Drive. The building is still there today.”
Dark skies yawn blackly from horizon to horizon. Lawn chairs leap into the air as winds whip skyward everything not nailed down. Hard rain pelts the earth like darning needles flung from the hands of an angry god. The turbulent, pendulous canopy extrudes a dusky, whirling finger earthward.
Before this storm front men, women and children scatter, an impromptu exodus from open spaces to the hoped-for safety of basements.
As of Wednesday night, Dr. Rocky Hansen is the personification of surprise.
