As part of our ongoing effort to raise funds for vital athletic programs at NHS, the Athletic Boosters will roll out a new program that is sure to be a winner…our own Northview signature coffee! The benefits are many. For the small-scale farmers in East Africa who produce the coffee, each purchase improves their livelihoods. At the same time Northview Boosters generate needed funds for athletics. Northview friends and families have the distinct pleasure of drinking freshly roasted, full-bodied, gourmet coffee packaged in specially designed custom bags!

Boosters make it easy for you to purchase the Northview Wildcat Blend. Available in both regular and decaf, the coffee is offered for sale at the first home varsity football game on September 10, at the NHS Open House on September 14 and at the Spirit Store. Beginning in October, folks can order coffee online!

Off duty firefighter helps woman attacked on the street

Plainfield Township, Mich. (WZZM) - An afternoon enjoying the great weather turned into much more for an off duty Plainfield Township firefighter.

Matt Van Dyken was driving with his mom and fiance when his mom saw a man attacking a woman.

She pulled the van over and started honking her horn.  That's when Matt jumped out and tried to stop what he says was a man choking a woman that had been thrown to the ground.

"And the female patient was laying right here and I just quickly looked down at her just to see if I could see her breathing," said Van Dyken.  "But my goal was to make sure that that guy was going to be stopped because I didn't know if he had a weapon or what his intention was, if he was just going randomly around attacking people, I didn't know what the situation was so I knew that guy needed to be stopped.
