  1. There's another bear roaming around West Michigan.

On Monday night he was hanging around Glenwood Hills Parkway in Cascade Township.

Officials say it's not uncommon to see bears in heavily populated areas and that they're usually harmless, but that doesn't mean you should let your guard down.

The Michigan DNR says the bear may have just left the care of his mother, so he might be a little lost and confused.

This comes days after another bear was spotted in Ionia County.


2. St. Cecilia music center in downtown Grand Rapids is officially raising money to start construction on renovations.

Some of the planned upgrades include new seating in the Royce Auditorium, a new roof, and a new lobby and box office.

The goal is to raise a total of $5.5 million. Officials have already received $4 million from private donors, now they're asking the public to help raise the rest.

Construction is set to start in June, but it's not expected to disrupt summer programs.

The work is expected to be finished by November 3 for a grand reopening.


3. Now you can Snapchat your way into some movie tickets.

Ahead of the premiere of the newest X-Men movie, the photo sharing app is temporarily expanding its services so you can use it to buy movie tickets.

Snapchat partnered with 20th Century Fox for the deal, which is a first for a startup company.

When an X-Men ad pops up in the app, all you have to do is swipe up, and you'll be taken to Fandango to purchase.

Snapchat also replaced all of its filters with X-Men characters for one day. The movie tickets through the app will be available until Thursday.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens this Friday.


4. They were the world's first surviving set of septuplets, and now they’re graduating from high school.

Alexis, Brandon, Joel, Kelsey, Kenny, Natalie, and Nathan made headlines when they were born in 1997 in Des Moines, Iowa.

On Sunday they walked across the stage and received their diplomas.

One sibling plans to go into the military and two are going to college in Missouri, where they were offered free tuition.

As for mom and dad? They're probably looking forward to a little bit of rest.


5. Now you really can have soda-pop for breakfast!

Kellogg's has two new flavors of Pop-Tarts coming out this month.

They are Frosted A&W Root Beer and Frosted Crush Orange.

They made the announcement Monday on their Facebook page and so far they're getting a lot of "likes.”

For those of you who don't care for pop-tarts, Kellogg's is also offering a new cereal. Krave will be available in chocolate and double chocolate.
