METRO DETROIT — While the invasive gypsy moth has not been a major problem in the metro Detroit area for years, the Macomb County Michigan State University Extension office is asking residents to keep an eye out for signs of the insect’s resurgence.

The gypsy moth is an invasive species from Europe that, in years past, has torn through tree populations in North America, defoliating trees and, in high enough numbers, causing their deaths. Previous outbreaks were handled using pesticides, and every fall, MSU does inspections to see how many egg masses it can find.

METRO DETROIT — Prostitution is real in metro Detroit. There are men and women who work the streets out of desperation and become trapped by it. But one group is trying to earn their trust and help them find another way.

The group has no paid staff. Everyone is a volunteer, including the founder, Lindsey Fischer. AWOL averages 40-50 volunteers, with 20-30 volunteers at the Detroit chapter.

METRO DETROIT — For bargain hunters, there’s nothing quite like a garage sale. The search for an oh-so-good deal — that needle-in-the-haystack item that was barely used and is priced to sell — is about as thrilling as it gets.


Many people are now realizing that the same thrill can be found without even leaving the couch. Thanks to secondary market websites like Craigslist and eBay, along with online resale groups on Facebook, the clearance rack is always open.

MOUNT CLEMENS — Led by Professor Silas Wood, the Mount Clemens Public Library opened up to the public on the third floor of the old Union School in 1865.

That room, in a building that later became the Alexander Macomb Learning Center and is now the home of St. Mary Catholic School on Union Street, quickly became too small for the popular library. The inventory was relocated to the basement of the then courthouse, which is today the Old Macomb County Administration Building, and the very first librarian was hired.
