Lumberjacks prepare for Futures Draft

Lumberjacks prepare for Futures Draft

The Muskegon Lumberjacks will take their first tangible step toward building the 2012-13 team next week, when they will have six selections in the annual USHL Futures Draft.

Only players born in 1996 are eligible to be chosen in this year’s Futures Draft, which will take place Tuesday, May 1. Unlike the Entry Draft, which is based on reverse standings order from the just-completed season, the Futures Draft order is randomized and reverses every other round in a “snake” fashion.

If there was any benefit in finishing out of the Clark Cup Playoffs this season, it was that the Muskegon Hockey Operations staff could turn a significant part of its attention to next season before most teams could afford to do the same.

“I’ve been out scouting a lot more this year,” said Assistant Coach Dave Noel-Bernier. “We looked at the standings a couple months ago and we decided to put more of our focus on the future.”

Free Public Health Clinic Treats 'Silent Disease'

The Hearing and Vision program at Public Health – Muskegon County offers follow-up specialty hearing clinics for children who do not pass the regular hearing screenings conducted at Muskegon County schools. The next clinic is planned for June 15 at the public health department and is provided at no cost to families thanks to funding from the Michigan Department of Community Health.  

 “The clinics are helpful for those families who need a referral to a specialist but can’t afford the co-pays or don’t have insurance at all,” notes Public Health Technician Grace Park, who coordinates the clinics. “Without our clinics, many of these children might never get the help they need for their hearing problems. For some of them it can mean permanent hearing loss.”

Power Tour returning to Muskegon

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - There will be thousands of hot rods making a return to West Michigan this summer.  Hot Rod Magazine has once again chosen Muskegon as one of seven stops on a national tour.  It could be the biggest event in the city's history.

For the second year in a row, car lovers in Muskegon are prepared to feel years younger.

"Immediately after hearing about some car event, everyone smiles and faces say, 'Wow. Lets go," says John Van Wyck, Chairman of Cruising the Lakeshore.

The tour will involve seven cities around the country. The publisher of Hot Rod Magazine says there were three main reasons Muskegon was chosen again.

"Muskegon loves hot rods, its right on the lake, and we needed a place that's really welcoming," says Jerry Pitt, Publisher of Hot Rod Magazine.

The event will feature about 4,000 cars on the road.
