In The Spotlight
Back in February, on our blog, Positively Muskegon we introduced you to Gavin and Kamden Cross who were out to help our area pet shelters out with some of the things that newly adopted pets need when they finally find their forever home. Things like a nice new collar, a new leash, maybe some toys and treats to make that transition from the shelter to their forever home a little easier for their new start.

In episode 140 of Fit and Healthy With Becky, there are no requirements other than a mat if you have one and a desire to get to it and stick to it. It's a Pilates work out designed to use the goods you've been given and nothing more! She's going to show you how to move your arms, legs and everything in between and it might even have a spelling lesson too!
As always, consult your Dr. before you start this or any other work out. Warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water! Here comes episode 140 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel.

As I was scrolling through Facebook one night as many of us do. I came across a post from Shannon Glass about her amazingly thoughtful daughter Danica. you see this year Danica started the sixth grade this year. Most girls around this age start their cycle, Shannon wanted her daughter to be prepared, confidant and know how to handle it when it happens.
As we hear over and over, "we're in this together". Yes, it's a snappy slug line and probably something we outta be better at anyway. We've all got our areas that we can add to the relief of our current times and we also too could do a little better job of following instructions on staying home and letting the worst of all this pass without helping to spread the virus.
Virus or no virus, our aging population is a point of concern as we get a little older ourselves and start to see the first signs of the "golden years" start to show in our parents. Very fortunately, for me, mine are both still quite healthy, agile, social and able to manage the day to day. But, like anyone who's approaching 50 the relentless march of time has taken its toll on those who I once saw as invincible.
Last year, we had our eyes opened up to the world of competitive robotics when the MARS 4004 Rovers team invited us out to do a story on their team and highlight the work and effort the young people from different area schools put in to battle it out in a local, state and regional and national level to see who can build the most competitive machine piloted by the most talented team. It's all part of STEM learning and the hands on approach for these young people is AMAZING!

The Mercy Health Project in Muskegon County has been a partner with The Muskegon Channel since day one, and even before with Positively Muskegon. We've been very proud to bring you stories and support the work they do in their community outreach in Muskegon which is extensive, although you may not exactly know their work by name. While "The Health Project" itself may not stand out, the groups and programs they stand behind certainly will and without their support, might not even exist.
Today Paranormal Muskegon sat down with Darren Dykhouse and Jamie Rae of Lakeshore Paranormal, a ghost-hunting team and Paranormal Youtubers in Muskegon. Ghost-hunting has become quite popular and it seems there is no shortage of them in Michigan. Most use a variety of instruments in their search for them but Lakeshore Paranormal is one of the few that rely on their abilities to sense and communicate with the spirit world in their pursuit of the unknown in addition to using devices that pick up ghostly manifestations. Darren Dykhouse is an empath and Jamie Rae is a psychic medium. They agreed to talk with us about their work and shared a few hair-raising stories of the spirits they encountered while on the hunt.
