August 22, 2014 — The Associated Press — A 52-year-old Portage man drowned yesterday in a lake at a popular campground on Old Porter Road.
Fire Chief Tom Feiffer said that dive teams recovered Charles Gritton from 20 feet of water, about 100 feet from shore, at the Jellystone Camp Resort north of U-S 20.
His girlfriend reported him missing late in the morning and his body was found in late-afternoon.
