Muskegon Hts. Schools receives $3.5-million loan

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) -- The state has given Muskegon Heights Public Schools a $3.5 million loan.

The money is to be used to help the West Michigan school district pay its debts. The Muskegon Chronicle reports Friday that the loan under the state's Emergency Municipal Loan Act is the second one the district has received.

This past August, the state loaned the district $7.6 million.
A financial emergency in the city prompted the appointment of emergency financial manager Donald Weatherspoon, who ordered the school district to stop providing educational services at the end of the last school year. He also laid off most of the district's staff.

The district has up to 30 years to pay off the loan, which carries an initial 2.35 percent interest rate.

Investigation over into Musk Hts. evidence room

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) An investigation into how money and property was handled in the evidence room at the Muskegon Heights Police Department is over.

Prosecutors say no one will be charged.  The investigation started in 2010 following claims of missing money.  Friday morning the prosecutor's office released a memo sent to the Michigan State Police. It states there is insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges.  It says investigators could not prove money was missing because it was never recorded properly. 

The memo also criticizes the department saying, "dumpster loads of evidence was strewn about and in no particular order, and access to the room was not controlled."

Weather whiplash: Arctic blast after spring-like temps

(WZZM) - You could call it a shock to the system: A 35 degree temperature drop in less than 24 hours. Parts of West Michigan reached record highs Tuesday and Wednesday as the thermometer hit 60 degrees. But by Thursday the mercury barely climbed into the 20s. 

Along the lakeshore the concern had been ice jams and rising rivers, but now road conditions are at the top of mind with one foot of lake effect snow predicted by Saturday.
