Vote now at on the poll question: Do you think Grand Haven Township should spend $725,000 on a new fire truck?



Hey here's an idea, why don't the police catch them? Why wasn't that on the poll, seemed kind of strange to ask if a neighborhood watch should catch them. We have a police department that gets paid for this kind of thing......


You should live in Muskegon for a while. This is only the beginning to trouble on the horizon coming to the community. Call it a sneak preview if you will. I just know from my experiences and what I have seen.


It's obvious since I moved back to Grand Haven a little bit over a year ago that this is NOT the same Grand Haven I left back in 1977. It has changed dramatically I have noticed a lot of bad element has moved into the area. All you have to do is go to Walmart to recognize that fact. How do you control it? You don't. But I am afraid that in the next 5 years Grand Haven will only be a mirror of Muskegon and Holland. Yes neighborhood watch systems should be put in place. You cannot expect the Police to be everywhere all at the same time. That is impossible.


I've lived in GH for 27 years.....I have witnessed alot of changes over the years. Some good, some not so good....but when all is said and done Grand Haven is still the diamond of the lakeshore. I do not believe that we will ever have the problems that Muskegon and Holland have. As far as Walmart is concerned, if you go into Walmart it's usually pretty empty......This is not a Walmart town. Why is Walmart always empty? Because we don't really have alot of 'bad element' in GH.....'nuff said..........


Maybe it's time for you to take your rose coloured glasses off. Candycoat anyway you like, but living in denial is not the solution. Obviously you've never experienced first hand living in Muskegon and only have stories to go on. You should live there for about a month or so you can get a sneak preview of what's on the horizon for Grand Haven. The storm is just beginning.


Do you guys work for the media? It seem you want to scare people just like the media does. Let's be clear this is the work of one maybe two idiots. Said loser is not even talented , it is a disgrace to even call it graffiti. This is not however a sign of Grand Haven turning into Muskegon. Please let's get real.


You must live in a cave. What planet did you step off of?
