    Fourth-grade students in Williamston, Michigan, won’t be watching Donald Trump’s Inauguration speech during class time on Friday because their teacher feels Trump’s statements during the campaign compromise the historic event. According to radio host Steve Gruber, Brett Meteyer, who teaches the elementary school students, sent a letter to parents explaining that students would watch the 2005 and 2009 inaugurations instead, and will cut off viewing of Trump’s inauguration right before the President-elect speaks.

    WILLIAMSTON, MICH. - A Williamston teacher’s decision not to show President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration speech to his students prompted strong reactions on social media after a letter to parents was shared by Williamston graduate and current syndicated radio host Steve Gruber. On his website, Gruber, who also has two children in the school district, posted an email sent to parents Monday by Brett Meteyer, a fourth-grade teacher at Williamston’s Explorer Elementary School. Gruber said he received a copy of the email from another parent in the district. In the email, Meteyer explained that the President-elect's comments during the election about...

    Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation Jan. 3 that bans a cash bond requirement in civil asset forfeiture proceedings. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal proceeding that allows police and prosecutors to keep and sell seized property, in many cases even if the owner is never convicted or even charged with a crime. The new law builds on 2015 reforms to Michigan’s civil asset forfeiture. Rep. Pete Lucido, R-Shelby Twp, first introduced House Bill 4629, now Public Act 418 of 2016, in May 2015. The law lifts a requirement that a person whose property is seized as part of civil asset...

    It looks like 2016 has been a good year for the state economy. The first official reports show that jobs, income and production are all up and tended to grow faster than national averages. The data on the state’s current economic performance shows substantial growth, though much of it will not come out until after year-end. The state added 70,900 jobs from the end of 2015 to November 2016, the most recent release showed. That is a 1.7 percent increase compared to a 1.4 percent increase for the nation. There are now more jobs in Michigan than when the 2007...

    Police often warn car owners to not leave their cars unattended while warming them up on the driveway. Officials say leaving your car running is an open invitation for thieves who want to make a quick getaway. But it wasn’t thieves who targeted Taylor Trupiano’s vehicle. Trupiano, a Michigan resident, said many people have to warm up their cars for several minutes in the brutal Michigan winter. However, he didn’t know that he would be fined for it. After leaving his car running in the driveway for several minutes, he came outside to find a ticket on his windshield. The...

    VILLA DE REYES, Mexico (AP) -- Word spread quickly through cellphone messages and shouts between co-workers that Ford Motor Co. had canceled its new $1.6 billion car plant at its sprawling 700-acre high desert site in north-central Mexico. "When I saw it on the phone, (I thought), 'Well, no, it can't be,'" said Higinio Salazar, a security guard who spent the past five months logging traffic into and out of the site and hoped to have steady work for months to come. "It was on orders of Mr. Trump," he said bitterly....

    I just read the DNI report and the bottom line is: DHS assesses that the types of systems Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying. However, if we remember Jill Stein's recount, the Michigan results show that there was a second entity which "hacked" the election. The Detroit results, with more votes than voters in 70% of the precincts, show that someone clearly hacked the vote tallying equipment. And, that someone, the hacker, was -- the Democrat party.

    As the latest legislative session came to a close, Michigan House Republicans failed to put a stop to two union schemes that are ripping off taxpayers. It is bizarre that, despite having a huge majority, the GOP continues to allow unions to misspend tax dollars for the sole purpose of enriching their officials. Earlier this year, the state Senate passed two bills ending these special union deals. Senate Bill 279 dealt with union pension spiking schemes, in which the state’s largest union teamed up with school districts to pretend its officials are still working for schools when they really are...

    When is it constitutional for a police officer to shoot a dog during a raid? Any time it moves or barks, according to a federal appeals court. In a ruling released Monday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals found Battle Creek, Mich. police officers were justified in shooting two pit bulls while executing a search warrant for drugs on the home of Mark and Cheryl Brown in 2013. The Brown's sued the police department in 2015, arguing the killing of their dogs violated their constitutional rights. The ruling creates a similar legal standard in the Sixth Circuit—which includes Michigan, Ohio,...

    On December 3, the Michigan Democratic Party held a committee meeting, open to the public and party members, to vote on delegates to represent Michigan at the Democratic National Committee. Unfortunately, rather than learning from Hillary Clinton’s presidential election loss, and sincerely welcoming Bernie Sanders supporters into the party after scolding them for more than a year, the Democratic establishment has continued treating progressives as second class citizens. Michigan was one of the most closely contested races during the Democratic primaries. Sanders pulled off an upset victory there after polling suggested Clinton was likely to win. The most recent turmoil...

The debate challenge was triggered by findings from an independent peer-reviewed study of the marketing program by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a longtime critic of taxpayer-funded business subsidies.

    DTE Energy CEO Gerry Anderson recently announced that the state’s largest electric utility plans to phase out the use of coal to generate power in Michigan. But critics say this could increase costs for consumers due to volatile price movements in the primary alternative, natural gas. Both DTE and the state’s other large utility, Consumers Energy, plan on transitioning entirely to natural gas and renewable energy sources. As of August 2016, coal plants generated 35.8 percent of Michigan’s electricity, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Natural gas fueled 33.8 percent of the power generated, and 25.5 percent came from...

    One out of every 266 voters participating in Michigan's Nov. 8, 2016, general election did not have a photo ID, according to the state elections bureau. Of the 4,874,619 votes cast in the state, 18,339 individuals signed the affidavit of identity required of individuals who want to vote without a picture ID. Nearly one-third of those affidavits — 5,834 — were signed in the city of Detroit. Other cities with a high number of affidavits included Grand Rapids (535) and Southfield (463). In the cities of Rochester and Livonia, all voters showed a photo ID.

Lyons introduced the bill just two days earlier to revise the current system for individuals voting without a photo ID.

Currently, a person who wishes to vote in Michigan without presenting photo identification must sign an affidavit of identity. One out of every 266 Michigan voters signed an affidavit this year.

New data released yesterday revealed that voting machines in 37% of all Detroit precincts, which skew heavily democratic, registered more votes than they had of actual voters showing up at the polls. The scale of the "voting irregularities" discovered prompted an automatic vote audit by the Michigan Secretary of State, Ruth Johnson.

Nowhere was this more evident than in Michigan, Dovere writes, where the SEIU wanted to shift resources in the final fortnight of the campaign: Everybody could see Hillary Clinton was cooked in Iowa. So when, a week-and-a-half out, the Service Employees International Union started hearing anxiety out of Michigan, union officials decided to reroute their volunteers, giving a desperate team on the ground around Detroit some hope....

Reports obtained by the newspaper from Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett found that in 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, more votes had been counted than the number of people who had been marked as having voted, which might serve as evidence of voter fraud across the city. Following the report, Michigan’s Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced plans to conduct a full investigation into the irregularities. Detroit was one of the areas...

    Two days after the Nov. 8 election, the Michigan Senate passed a rewrite of the state’s electric utility law that some experts say would lock this state into a regulatory scheme that President-elect Donald Trump has promised to repeal. Supporters argue that without the bill, the state could face electricity shortfalls. It is not yet known if the state House has the votes to pass the bill in the lame-duck legislative session that begins Nov. 29. The bill’s proposed regulatory arrangements are part of this state’s response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Clean Power Rule.” The rule would force states...

    Be careful what you wish for … you just might get it. Jill Stein didn’t get the recount she wanted in Michigan, but she did get the state to take vote-integrity issues seriously. Meeting in its lame-duck session, the state House of Representatives passed a tough voter-ID bill that includes $3 million for funding of free state identification and birth certificates after over 18,000 voters cast ballots without identification in the presidential election: Michigan’s Republican-led House on Wednesday night approved a strict voter identification proposal over strenuous objections from Democrats who argued the plan could disenfranchise properly registered voters.Michigan...

Now lawmakers are rushing the legislation that will force any candidate who didn't get at least 5% of the vote to have to pay the full cost of a recount. Currently, Stein will only pay $1 million of a recount expected to cost taxpayers as...

    A federal judge who ordered Michigan to begin its recount effectively ended it on Wednesday, tying his decision to a state court ruling that found Green Party candidate Jill Stein had no legal standing to request another look at ballots. The ruling seals Republican Donald Trump’s narrow victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton for Michigan’s 16 electoral votes. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans who argued that the three-day recount must end a day after the state appeals court dealt a blow to the effort. The court said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didn’t have...
