    DUNDEE, MI (WTOL) - A new Army National Guard Super Armory is coming to our area, just across the border in Dundee, Michigan. The armory will be built across the highway from Cabela's and city, county and state leaders hope the project will have a similar impact on the community as the outdoor super store. The armory will sit on 44 acres of land. "This is the biggest announcement for Dundee since Cabela's,” said Republican State Senator Dale Zorn of Lenawee County. “I think Dundee is a great strategic location not only for Michigan but for our entire national security."...

    Obama justified his Libyan War to the American people by claiming that people of Benghazi were in danger from Gaddafi. After he succeeded in overthrowing Gaddafi, Benghazi reverted to its radical roots and became a city run by terrorist militias leading to the murder of four Americans. And now a fifth American. That shouldn’t be surprising because Benghazi had become a stop on the Jihadi Express. Every week, about a dozen Syrians arrive at Benghazi’s airport for what’s described as insurgent training. When they fly out, they’re carrying fake Libyan passports, according to three officials familiar with the comings and...

    Hub of Etruscan civilisation found By Martin Penner Archaeologists believe that they have found the ruins of the religious and political centre of the Etruscan civilisation. The Etruscans lived in the area between Rome and Florence from the 8th century BC until they were absorbed by Romans about 600 years later. The heads of Etruria’s 12 city states would meet to discuss their affairs every spring at a holy place called the Fanum Voltumnae. It was never clear where the Fanum was but archaeologists from Macerata University believe they have found it at a site near the hill town of...

    The fuming Nova Scotia lumberjack who donated the spruce to be lighted on Boston Common has a message for the Hub: Feed that “holiday tree” to a woodchipper. “My family donated a Christmas tree. If Boston wants to call it something else, maybe they should just send it back,” said Donnie Hatt, the logger who donated the 48-foot-tall white spruce that grew in his front yard for 36 years. “If I’d known there would be this much craziness, I would have ground it up myself.” Hatt was referring to the flurry of media calls he’s received since yesterday’s Herald reported...

    Shaped like clovers, festooned with Playboy bunnies and popular cars, the colorful little Ecstasy pills that landed the owners of two popular downtown clubs in jail last week started their march to Houston in clandestine, rural laboratories in the Netherlands. Chemists, sometimes working out of large, sophisticated buildings, sometimes mobile laboratories, have churned out as many as 500,000 Ecstasy pills an hour for a mere 20 cents each, making the Netherlands, a country known for its liberal attitude toward the illegal pursuit of happiness, one of the major worldwide producers of Ecstasy. Last week's charges against 24 people in Houston...

    Federal authorities have dismantled a Houston Ecstasy-trafficking ring that used two popular downtown nightclubs to launder profits and was supplied by an international network considered among the largest in the world, officials said Tuesday. Authorities have charged 24 people in Houston and 10 members of the international organization -- most in Israel, the base of the operation, and in the Netherlands, where the Ecstasy was produced. Among those charged in Houston are two brothers, Sarabjeet "Rick" Singh and Amrik "Spiro" Singh, who authorities said oversaw a local network that distributed massive amounts of Ecstasy and opened the Spy Club and...
