A single-engine bi-plane crashed shortly after taking off early Sunday afternoon from the Grand Haven airport. The plane's wing clipped a tree in the 14000 block of Indian Trails and hit the ground just short of the Pottawattomie Bayou in Grand Haven Township. The pilot was taken by ambulance to North Ottawa Community Hospital.
Dozens of teams competed Saturday during the annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Grand Haven City Beach. The event brought out creative sand artists of all ages in an attempt to create the best sand sculpture.
