  1. Thank you John for the awesome photos. Nice to be able to see the great things taking place in my hometown.
  2. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2009/11/van_andel_research_institute_r.html VAI receives 1.3 million grant for cancer research. Nice job.
  3. yes, I take 95 between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami on a daily basis...very nasty.
  4. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/ind...grand_vall.html GVSU threatening eminent domain to take DeVries' building. Buckle up folks...this should be good.
  5. I agree. What a winning design for the MSU Secchia Center, certainly seems to be commonplace at MSU.
  6. the only article I could find on the new GVSU building... http://www.gvsu.edu/gvnow/index.cfm?fuseac...57058FA926570F6
  7. They could put it to the left where the gray unfinished area is currently. Plenty of room there for a big block S. Then again, they might have just decided to go with the sign that is there currently. Only time will tell... One thing for sure, we can all be glad it's Michigan State in our city and not some other school with a lousy football team.
  8. apparently there is going to be a block S sign added to the north side of the secchia center. is it up yet? any info on this? http://chm.msu.edu/MessagefromDr.Rappley.asp
  9. The city of Miami has a system similar to this one. It works very good for me. It is nice getting a text message telling you that your time is about to expire, and then you can just call back and add more time. The GR system seems a little different where you have to call back when you are finished. I actually like that better, because in Miami I have to guess how long I need and they charge an additional $.35 "convenience fee" everytime you call to add time. I think this is a good move.
  10. Didn't Medtronic in GR sell to some other company? I worked there around 2000, but then took another job as it was apparent that the place was going to be sold. They still have a presence in GR other than selling the goods that are made in GR by the new contract manufacturer?
  11. Did my undergrad at MSU...will always be a Spartan. GVSU is a nice school, but unfortunately not many people have heard of it outside of MI. Maybe they should change the name to Grand Rapids State or something.
  12. MSU has lots to offer and excells in many areas. For example, MSU's nuclear physics program is second only to MIT. To compare MSU to GVSU is ridiculous, and that is coming from a person with degrees from both. http://www.msu.edu/thisismsu/points_pride.html
  13. for Spartan Football fans...check out this new building... http://msuspartans.cstv.com/view.gal?id=32790
  14. GR was featured on ABC or NBC world news tonight last week, can't remember which...about pharmacies not carrying birth control or condoms. They featured Kay Pharmacy and he won't carry either. Saw it down here in Miami.
