Knox & Plymouth
Two local drive-ins open for the season on Friday. Melody Drive-In in Knox is showing Captain America. Tri-Way drive-in in Plymouth also opens Friday, but they haven't released their movie line-up yet.
Lake Michigan College is considering a new program that might appeal to wine connoisseurs. According to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium, the school voted to move forward with an oenology and viticulture program – meaning wine making. They still have to get approval from the agency in charge of accreditation.
We have an update on the fundraising effort for a little girl battling a life-threatening disease. The goal was to raise $31,000 in 31 days to buy a special van to help two-and-a-half year old Ella Lanay Hunt of Osceola. As of Sunday night, they only needed about $1,900 and Monday is the last official day of the campaign. Ella is fighting Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) which cripples her body.
