Elderly unlicensed driver charged in death of 4-year-old


GREENVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Weeks after a 4-year-old boy was struck and killed in Greenville, the elderly unlicensed driver police say is responsible is now facing felony charges.

Susan Rieckman, 69, of Cedar Springs, is charged with driving on a suspended license causing death.

Just before noon Sept. 14, police say 4-year-old Talos Bills and a 16-year-old family friend were crossing South Lafayette at Washington on the way home.

Rieckman turned left, injuring the 16-year-old and killing Talos.

The family of Talos says they harbor no hatred for the driver, but says she needs to answer for her mistake.

"Because, I mean, he lost his life," points out Pamela Bills, the boy's grandmother. "She didn't have a license and she shouldn't be driving."

Taste of my town: Klackle Orchards


GREENVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- For the last several weeks, we've been featuring apple orchards and pumpkin farms during our Taste of My Town stories. This weekend, we wrap up this special fall series with a trip to Klackle Orchards in Greenville, to learn about the process of pressing fresh apple cider.

"The orchard we're on now used to be a potato farm that my grandparents purchased in the 60s and then planted fruit trees on," explains Natalie Klackle. "In the 70's my dad took over and that's when we got into the retail agra-tourism business by selling fruit on a wagon on the side of the road. In the early 80's we started taking people through the orchard on wagon rides for pick your own fruit and it's gotten bigger and bigger and bigger," said Natalie.
