Man finds message in bottle from 1994 in western Michigan

Posted: Updated:
 IONIA, Mich. (AP) - It isn't quite a message in a bottle, but an Ohio man says he found a 21-year-old message secreted in a camera film case that had traveled some 40 miles down the Grand River in western Michigan.

Terry Smith tells WILX-TV that he found the case with the messages inside on Monday while hunting for mushrooms in Ionia, Michigan. According to Smith, the case contained three pieces of paper written by two 12-year-old girls in Lansing in 1994.

Two of the documents show drawings of the girls, while the third is a letter to the finder of the film case.

Smith says when he found the papers they were water-stained and damp, but are nonetheless in good condition.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
