This year, more than 50 schools participated and collected more than 10,000 toys.  Many schools will continue their collections through next week.  “It’s just so wonderful to see kids get into the spirit of this campaign,” said WZZM Community Relations Director Catherine Behrendt.  “They understand the joy that a toy brings to a child on Christmas morning.”

Lumberjacks Log: Week 10

Lumberjacks Log: Week 10

MUSKEGON, Mich. (December 8, 2011) – Following nine straight two-game weeks, the Muskegon Lumberjacks play just one match over the next seven days, as the Omaha Lancers come to the Port City for the final tilt of a three-game homestand.

As the schedule lightens up – the Jacks play only six games in December – it can be a challenge for a team to maintain its competitive edge. Lumberjacks Head Coach/GM Kevin Patrick has some solutions to that potential issue.

“You try to mix things up to stay sharp,” Patrick said. “[The light schedule] gives you an opportunity to work on certain parts of the game that you wouldn’t have a chance to really focus on if you were playing more games.”

Last weekend at home, the Lumberjacks (8-10-0, 16 points) split a two-game set with Eastern Conference foe Youngstown, winning 5-0 Friday night before falling 4-2 in a tight finish Saturday.

Musk. Hts. schools seek emergency manager

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The board of Muskegon Heights Public Schools is asking the state to appoint an emergency financial manager to help the struggling district.

The board voted on the EFM request at its Wednesday meeting, as well as several staff cuts within the district -- including the position of superintendent Dana Bryant.  The cutting of the superintendent's position was one of several cuts made as part of a deficit reduction plan required by the state's Department of Education.

"This is the first step in a long process of rebuilding our district's operational future," says Rev. Avery Burrel in a statement.
