Environmental education building being built in Muskegon

Environmental education building being built in Muskegon

The Education Center will be built directly in front of the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve on Lake Ave. The land is currently used for parking, and it will continue to be. But, the land is NOT owned by the Preserve. The owner graciously lets us use it. Part of the fund raising effort will go to purchasing the land.

The Education Center will house a classroom, laboratory, exhibit are, offices and the Michigan Environmental Hall of Fame. It will feature the latest technology, allowing the students to interact with others across the globe as well as to “bring in” speakers. The Lab. can also be used by students from the Nature Preserve to further investigate their findings from the Preserve.

Man passes fake $20s at Muskegon bar

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - A bartender at DJ's Pub in Muskegon says, at first glance, there was nothing unusual about the $20 bills a customer gave her.

But on closer inspection Jodi Hendrie realized she'd accepted a total of seven very convincing counterfeit $20s from the middle aged suspect.

"It was printed perfectly," she explains, "but the paper...you could just tell."

Hendrie has tended bar for 17 years and isn't easily fooled, but Wednesday was a busy night at DJ's. She says the customer was polite, and he paid for some drinks with with real bills. Several times, Hendrie says, he sent a "regular" up to the bar to pay for drinks with one of the bogus bills.

"I'm busy, actually I'm very busy running back and forth," she recalls. "It finally started slowing down and when he gave me the last one it just didn't feel right to me. I held it up to the light and realized this was not right.
