GRAND RAPIDS -- Steve Johnson offers one face behind this week's economic numbers: record joblessness and a shrinking labor pool. While his kids' in-state college tuition payments and a small woodworking shop will keep him and his wife, Jo, here a few more years, they already have begun their search for another state to call home. On Thursday, the state reported the Grand Rapids area's rate climbed to 10.3 percent, the highest in the 19 years of recordkeeping.
Nestled on the shores of the Grand River, Grand Rapids is one of the largest cities in Michigan.
For the people in the surrounding communities of Muskegon, Holland, Wyoming and Grandville, summer is a great time to attend Grand Rapid's many seasonal events. Landscaping experts say eco-friendly organic products may take a year or more to transform grass, but the result leads to lower water bills and healthier lawn.
As the summer draws to a close, residents can attend the Celebration on the Grand to see fireworks and concerts.
