Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft Reveals #GRgyle [Video]

LPGA pros Morgan Pressel and Nicole Castrale might not have quite arrived with a fashion suggestion revealed this morning, but they both embrace the reasons behind the red argyle that's popped up around Grand Rapids since May 9.

Those somewhat iconic red argyle socks have been showing up in greater Grand Rapids at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, Rosa Parks Circle, at other downtown Grand Rapids locations and even the Tulip Time Festival last month in Holland.

The campaign is all tied to the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft, which is teeing off Aug. 7 to 10 at Blythefield Country Club. Consider the red argyle campaign with the #GRgygle hashtag as Walker-based Meijer's nudge for a community-focused LPGA tournament with all proceeds to benefit Meijer's Simply Give food pantry-supporting and hunger-fighting program.

Tickets for the Meijer Classic, which will have a 144-player field vying for $1.5 million in prize money, went on sale today.

24-Year-Old Cold Case Grand Rapids Murder Reopened; Film About Slaying Debuts This Week

Grand Rapids police have reopened their investigation into the murder of 23-year-old Joel Battaglia.

Battaglia died on June 11, 1990, from injuries suffered in a beating. He was last seen leaving Mulligan's Pub in Grand Rapids' Eastown neighborhood early that morning.

Battaglia was found, beaten and unconscious, a half mile away from the pub where he was last spotted, at 1065 Lake Drive SE. Robbed and left without identification, Joel lay in the morgue unidentified for a day. A tattoo of a phoenix on his right ankle enabled investigators to put his name with his body.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ Cruises Past ‘Maleficient’ and ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

For reasons that will baffle some people, 'The Fault in Our Stars' effortlessly took the number one spot at the box office this weekend, gliding past its bigger, more expensive and more ferocious competition and making it look easy.

‘The November Man:’ Pierce Brosnan Does His Best Liam Neeson [Video]

'The November Man' very much wants to remind you that its star once played James Bond. Yes, Pierce Brosnan is back, once again playing the action hero in a spy movie. The casting seems compelling enough, and the 'November Man' trailer sees Brosnan straddling an interesting line between 007 and Liam Neeson in 'Taken,' very much looking his age but making it work for him.

Festival is running strong this weekend in downtown Grand Rapids! The sun is shining and the heat is keeping me outside. If you check out some of the awesomeness that is GR Festival, you'll see some pretty cool bands.
