West Michigan: Newsmakers Apr 3 - 9




Grand Rapids Press:

The latest TV spot by GOP gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos comes with a bold claim: "Dick DeVos turned Grand Rapids around," it states on an introduction to the ad on the candidate's Web site. The 30-second ad, which first aired around the state last week, contrasts a bleak black-and-white city -- empty, crumbling buildings -- that morphs into a colorful metropolis, with shots of the Amway Grand Plaza, the downtown campus of Grand Valley State University, Van Andel Arena and DeVos Children's Hospital... Visionary or revisionist? Dick DeVos is a major player, but some say ad goes too far (Fri 4/7)

FSN shines spotlight on Pistons guard (Fri 4/7)
