Today Grand Rapids Remembers DJ Allison Harte At Memorial Service

Allison Harte, her personality, her laugh and her ability to connect with her audience made her a much loved air personality here in Grand Rapids but she was just as loved in Detroit.  A number of years ago Allison and I worked in Detroit at the same time.  She worked at WABX and I was working at WDRQ.  We would see each other at all the telethons and benefits and you could tell that her listeners loved her so much.

Westboro Baptist Church To Protest At Betty Ford’s Funeral In Grand Rapids

Okay so I just heard, that that Westboro Baptist Church group that protests at soldiers funerals all over the country, will be coming to Grand Rapids to protest at Betty Ford's funeral. At first it made me cry, for Betty.  But then I thought, these people masquerade under the guise of religion and call themselves Christians.  People can call themselves anything they want but LOOK AT THE BEHAVIOR!  Consistent behavior will reveal everything.  Well, those people are coming to a real, true, honest to goodness city, that has more churches per capita, than anywhere else.
