Larry and Pearl Padden didn’t move to Lakeview until 1991, long after Larry’s 1971 retirement. Before that the couple summered on the shores of Lake Nipissing in Canada and wintered in Vero Beach, Fla. It didn’t take long before the Paddens adopted their new hometown, heart and soul. Both became integral members of the community and in no time were on a first name basis with many Lakeview residents.
Cygnus, a northern constellation of the Milky Way, is home to one of the brightest stars seen by night.

The business front is about to get sparse in downtown Greenville. Three businesses are currently liquidating stock and preparing to close shop. In the very near future, Springrove Variety, The Cottage Porch Gift Shoppe and Anne’s Pet Shoppe will all close their doors for the final time.
As Greenville Public Schools Superintendent Pete Haines attended his final school board meeting Monday evening, the wheels began to turn in the district’s search for his successor. Haines submitted his resignation June 8 after accepting the superintendent position at the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District (OAISD).
The next quorum held in the former Bloomer Township Hall will likely be a quilting quorum.
Rachel Hubler and Katherine Maiga, sisters and owners of Seven Sisters Quilt Shop in downtown Carson City, recently purchased the old township hall at 217 W. Sherman St. The Bloomer Township Hall offices relocated to 9890 E. Carson City Road (M-57) last year.

As the Montcalm County 4-H Fair was just beginning last week, 4-H’er Jacob Drake was miles away, fishing with a friend on the Muskegon River near Croton Dam. It was then that his phone buzzed with a text message delivering a bit of surprising news.
As he readies for a new challenge, Scott Koenigsknecht is reflecting on his past eight years with the Montcalm Area Intermediate School District (MAISD) during his last week on the job.

The advancement of his career to the head of MAISD was the pinnacle of his career at that point.
