A preliminary report released Monday accuses state Rep. Cindy Gamrat of misconduct and of misusing her office and staff to cover up an extramarital affair. Her affair with Rep. Todd Courser, R-Lapeer, came to light last month sparking the House Business Office investigation which produced the report.

“A dream come true...” might sound like a bit of an exaggeration for dedicating a set of government buildings. However, tribal elder John Bush said just that at the Gun Lake Tribe’s opening of its government complex Tuesday, Aug. 25.
A lawsuit filed in federal court accuses a deputy at the Allegan County Jail of sexually assaulting a man being taken into custody. County attorneys have denied any sexual assault happened in their response.
State Rep. Cindy Gamrat says she has many issues to consider in deciding whether or not to resign in the wake of her affair with another legislator and an alleged cover-up coming to light.

UPDATE: The independent movie "From the Shadows" being filmed in Allegan came to an abrupt halt Tuesday, Aug. 18. The director and executive producer decided to put the film on hiatus until next summer due to lack of available crew and a desire to make the film as good as it can be.
