West Michigan: Newsmakers June 28, 2009




Grand Rapids Press:

Like more than 1,000 others, Matt Hartwig spent this past week without his car, trapped last weekend in the flooded Ionia Fairgrounds parking lot after the B-93 Birthday Bash ... The first 100 car owners of the more than 1,000 stranded last week were allowed access to their vehicles for the first time on Saturday. Crews from Reed & Hoppes Towing and Equipment, of Portland, early in the morning began towing cars out of the parking lot that had been under water for most of the week when the Grand River flooded its banks. Representatives from several insurers, including AAA, Allstate and State Farm, were on hand to handle claims. "It's just a bad situation," said Sam Pace, of Burlington, summing up how many felt, as he waited Saturday morning at the Ionia Intermediate School District Building to be among the first to claim his 2005 Dodge Dakota...
