Grand Rapids Native to play in US Senior Open Championship

Grand Rapids Native to play in US Senior Open Championship

Doug Snoap 53, son of Pat McComb and David Snoap, was born in Grand Rapids, graduated from Grandville High School, attended Davenport College and then went on to the University of Central Florida and since then has resided in Florida.

From the time Doug was 11 years old, he played golf, starting out at Lincoln Golf Course on Lake Michigan Dr. NW, near his family home.

He worked for IBM for several years, then took a year off from work to pursue his golf career but after failing to make the cut, went back to work, this time for the Hilton Hotel chain, his present employer.

Just recently Doug was notified that he was chosen as an alternate for the US Senior Open Championship to be played at Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, MI, approximately 35 miles north of Detroit beginning Thursday July 12 through Sunday, July 15.

Good Samaritans rescue man from water

OTTAWA COUNTY, Michigan (WZZM)-  Good Samaritans are being credited with rescuing a man from the water at Georgetown Township Park and Recreation Area.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says 22-year-old Cipriano Ramirez of Grand Rapids went under shortly before 2:30 pm Saturday. People at the park formed a human chain and found him, pulling him out of the water.

Witnesses think Ramirez was in the water for five to seven minutes before he was rescued. Bystanders and paramedics performed CPR at the scene. Ramirez was taken to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition Saturday night.

UPDATE: I-196 reopens after pavement buckles

UPDATE AT 11:11 P.M. (WZZM)-- Road crews have reopened westbound I-196 between mile markers 58 and 60 to through traffic.

Road crews say the pavement was 130 degrees to 140 degrees.  They say the concrete underneath heated up, causing the pavement to bubble.

UPDATE AT 6:30 P.M. (WZZM) -- Workers will make repairs on a section of I-196 that bucked due to the heat Friday.

MDOT workers say they will close down one of the westbound lanes of I-196 to smooth out the raised section of road, then close down the other lane to repeat the process.  The partial lane closures are expected to last at least two hours.

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Ottawa County dispatchers are asking drivers to find a detour around a buckled portion of I-196.

There is an eight to ten-inch rise in the pavement in the westbound lanes of I-196 at mile marker 58, just west of Hudsonville.

Little Leaguers play in the heat

JENISON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Some events were cancelled because of Thursday's extreme heat, but the game went on for the all-star Little League games in Jenison.

Some parents voiced concern about the conditions on one league's Facebook page, but a team manager says everyone showed up for the games Thursday night.

Coaches also came with extra supplies to keep the young athletes cool and hydrated. 

"In our tournaments they're so cut and dry on how many days we have to get them in so it's pretty much a do or die thing," says Little League board member Todd Hotovy. "We asked to have water in the dugouts for all the kids and most of the coaches bring coolers with towels in them to put around their necks and keep them cool as much as we can between the innings."
