Human Bone Still a Mystery a Year Later

A human bone found along Lake Michigan, almost a year ago, still remains a mystery. In November of last year, a human femur bone was found along the shoreline at Silver Lake State Park. The bone was taken to Michigan State University's crime lab analysis to try and identify the human. According to the Oceana County Sheriff's Office, after no success, the bone  has been transferred to the University of North Texas, as well as the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System for further testing.

Hospital Benefit Ball Results

In a statement from Bill Kerans, Coordinator of the Marketing Department at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital:

We had more than 200 people attending. We deeply appreciate this outstanding community support and want to thank our sponsors and those who attended the annual Benefit Ball.

The theme this year was Van Gough’s “Starry Night.” So far, ticket sales and sponsorships have brought in $114, 270. The proceeds will be used for additional services for new moms and their babies through the Family Birthing Center, as noted by honorary chair Dr. Margaret Gustafson.

Kaley Petersen, foundation director, anticipates some additional funds will be received in the coming days.

Support for this event has been exceptional. Since its inception, community support for the Benefit Ball exceeds $725,000.

This is in addition to other fundraising initiatives of the hospital foundation, such as the $1.6 million campaign for the community-funded Women’s Imaging Center.
