WSCC President Arrested

The President of West Shore Community College is arrested for operating under the influence of liquor. According to Chief David Bachman, Director of Public Safety of the City of Manistee, Charles Dillon was arrested last night in the parking lot of Olsen Grocery Store. Officers pulled him over around 9pm after responding to reports of a drunk driver. Dillon refused a breathalyzer test and had his blood drawn instead. Those results won't be available for another two weeks. He spent the night in the Manistee County Jail and was released on bond this morning.

911 Mason-Oceana Millage Passed

With more yes votes in Mason and Oceana County, the Mason-Oceana 9-1-1 new millage request of .14 mills for six years passed on yesterday's ballot. The new millage request will help fund the center through 2019, the year when all bond payments on the center are complete. The increase will finance equipment, the facility and the day-to-day operations of a 9-1-1 dispatch service center. The millage was necessary due to persistent declines in the center's surcharge revenues that account for 78% of their funding.
