JENISON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A West Michigan business owner will face off with the sharks next week.

Jenison native Sara Moylan is the owner and inventor of the Shefit bra, a fully adjustable sports bra.

Recently, she was invited to pitch her invention on ABC's Shark Tank.

"To me, it's just crazy that in this day and age, with all these amazing companies on the market, nobody's went back to the drawing board and truly innovated and brought some amazing technology to one of the most important pieces of equipment we as women have, which is a sports bra," said Moylan.

Man in Grandville kidnap, ransom case wins appeal


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A man sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in prison for kidnapping his ex-mother-in-law, who was blind-folded and duct-taped to a telephone pole, will get a new sentencing hearing, the Court of Appeals ruled.

For the second time since his 2011 conviction, Regan Adam Reynolds appealed a Kent County Circuit Court sentence that has him behind bars for between 30 and 90 years.

Whether a third appearance before the same judge will shave time off his sentence remains to be seen.

Reynolds recruited two others to break into the Grandville woman’s home in Aug. 2011 and abduct her for ransom. The 60-year-old woman was blindfolded and duct-taped to a telephone pole in an Allegan County corn field, but managed to escape.

Reynolds and one of his confederates held the woman’s husband at knife-point inside the couple’s home on Navaho Court SW, demanding ransom for the woman’s safe return.

New Hudsonville store invites crafters, pickers to do business


HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) - A business that got its start on social media now has a physical store in Hudsonville.

The Found Cottage was started by a group of women who share a love for antiques and crafts. The physical store opened last week and had a line of people out the door, waiting to get in.

One of the owners, Liz Galvan, credits social media for their success.

“I blog full-time, so I have a presence on social media and that's where I talk to a lot of my readers. That's how the word got out. The store is a mix of old and new. We have 12 vendors who are pickers and makers. We gathered under one roof and sell our goods,” said Galvan.
