A prolific bowling career for Wyatt Meyers was kickstarted by rejection.

An old downtown building purported to be the first J.L. Hudson standalone store in the Midwest is set for renovation after the Ionia City Council voted Tuesday night to approve a 12-year property tax abatement and a 24-year Brownfield redevelopment plan.
The City Council granted an Obsolete Property Rehabilitation Exemption certificate for the real property at 340 W. Main St. through Dec. 30, 2033. A building is deemed obsolete when at least 50% of it can no longer be used for the functions it was designed for.
