Lamar Construction assets to be auctioned


HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- In two weeks, the assets of a former West Michigan construction company will be auctioned.

Lamar Construction shut down earlier this year and is trying to sell off its assets through bankruptcy.

On September 23, everything from woodworking equipment, office furniture, snowblowers, forklifts, and workout equipment will be sold at auction.

"You got all kinds of raw sheet metal and steel, constructual steel that Lamar used to use in their construction process," saud Liquid Asset Partners CEO Bill Melvin. "There's also welding equipment that they would use to construct some of the supports and things for their buildings they were working on."

The September 23 auction starts at 9 a.m. at Lamar Construction's former headquarters in Hudsonville.

A preview day will be held on September 22.

Rob Bell joins Oprah's 'Life You Want Weekend'


(Detroit Free Press) -- When you catch the attention of Oprah Winfrey something magical happens.

Just ask Rev. Rob Bell, a popular preacher and author whose book, "What We Talk About When We Talk About God," appealed to Oprah so much that she kicked off her Super Soul Sunday series in 2013 by interviewing him. His book was also her book of the month pick that September.

And she recently tapped him to join a group of speakers who'll be joining her Friday and Saturday for "Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend" at the Palace of Auburn Hills. His publishers released a special edition of "What We Talk About When We Talk About God" (HarperOne, $11.35) to coincide with the tour.

He still remembers when his publisher called to tell him Oprah had read it and wanted him on her show.

My Town: Breweries help battle cancer and Parkinson's with 'Hops for Hope'

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Knock back a beer and help knock out cancer this month with “Hops for Hope.”

 

During September, several West Michigan breweries will be donating $1 from each “purple beer” purchase to Van Andel Institute’s Purple Community.  Proceeds from sales of Hops for Hope growlers and refills will also go to the cause.

 

“It’s good to give back to the community,” Bob Bonga, owner of the family-owned and operated Jaden James Brewery in Kentwood. “It’s wonderful that VAI is in Grand Rapids, and 100% of what we raise goes to research.”
