Peter Tork, songwriter and bass player for the made-for-tv rock band The Monkees, passed away Thursday in his Connecticut home from cancer at the age of 77. There is a link between The Monkees and Battle Creek.
Officer Troy DeKryger's and Officer Phillip Goodrich's quick action resulted in the saving of many lives. They were recently acknowledged for their bravery and selflessness at the 2018 Life Saving Awards by the Marshall City Council.
Just before midnight Tuesday a 32-year-old Battle Creek woman approached a police officer, and said she had been given two suspicious $100 bills. She told officers that she went to a gas station with the money, and the clerk told her it was counterfeit.
