    The search for meteorites continues all over metro Detroit.  NASA experts point toward Livingston County to find them. Bill Cooke is the Meteoroid Environment Program Manager with NASA and he said the Doppler radar images show the meteorites from the meteor spotted on January 16 in Livingston County. “The meteorites should be just south of M-36 between Hamburg and Lakeland,” said Cooke. Cooke said Doppler is best way to track where they might be found. "Doppler weather radar is a very good indicator because, when it picks up meteorites, the meteorites are fairly close to the ground, they're only a couple...

According to Gilbert, Bishop has voted six times to defund Planned Parenthood. Gilbert, an actress and former...

    A candidate for the Libertarian Party’s chairman position stripped off his clothes and strutted his stuff on stage at the party’s national convention Sunday, instead of simply making a speech. He did not win the position. The lumberjack-looking candidate tried a laissez-faire approach to campaigning at the Orlando event: He cued a dance song, clapped, and then slowly removed his tie, shirt and suspenders, all for the live C-Span cameras.

    Group aims at educating families about guns Wayne County sheriff's Deputy Steve Fisher decided education was a positive outcome to the endless news reports about a child being killed because someone - often another child - found a gun and thought it was a toy. As a result, Family Firearm Day was created. The inaugural event is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Howell Gun Club, 3210 Jewell Road in Marion Township. "Putting (guns) in your sock drawer is not the right place," said Fisher, an NRA-certified instructor. "I was tired of hearing how another child...

Here is a different perspective. Here is ... the rest of the story.

For our children's sake, this is unacceptable." He further said that...
