FRASER — Students from Fraser Public Schools recently teamed up to create art for an upcoming auction.

The only caveat was that there was a little gap in the age of the artists.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Two individuals have been caught by police in connection with the shooting death of a Clinton Township party store owner.

At press time, police said that an Oak Park man and a female accomplice were being held in Ohio due to their alleged involvement in the death of 50-year-old party store owner Emil Salem.

Did you, a parent or grandparent fight in World War II, work in a factory to support the war effort, or plant a “victory garden” to feed the family when wartime rationing made things scarce?

If the answer is yes, then we want you, or them.

World War II ended 70 years ago this year with the formal surrender of Japan on Sept. 2, 1945. On May 8, the world will recognize the 70th anniversary of V-E Day, which marked the end of the war in Europe.

METRO DETROIT — For more than 300 same-sex couples across the state of Michigan, March 22, 2015, was a very special day, for it marked the one-year anniversary of their weddings.

Their marriages took place in the brief window of time last year after a federal district court judge struck down the state’s same-sex marriage ban, but before the state appealed to the Sixth Circuit Court and had that decision put on hold.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has been an international staple when it comes to providing low-income families with decent, affordable housing.

And the one constant since 1976 and the present is that there are always people less fortunate in need.

That is part of the reason why the Macomb County Habitat for Humanity affiliate — officially formed in 1993 — continues to reach out to those who cannot only provide monetary aid, but also spread the word that people from all walks of life need help.

METRO DETROIT — In William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” the revered poet and playwright said that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

More than 400 years later, that quote can be attributed to something more traditional and commonplace: interior design and real estate.

Home staging is arguably more popular than it’s ever been before. The process of preparing a home to make it more appealing to potential buyers has become vital to those who sell homes.

LANSING — Third time’s the charm.

At least that’s what Matthew Falk is hoping when it comes to Logan’s Law, a bipartisan bill his own dog helped to inspire.

Michigan Rep. Paul Muxlow, R-Brown City, reintroduced the legislation to the Michigan House of Representatives on March 17 in hopes of getting support from the House and eventually the Senate to create a registry database for convicted animal abusers.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Motown Records founder Berry Gordy Jr. never gave up on his dream of working in the music business.

Although he tried boxing as a career and spent a brief moment on Detroit’s automobile assembly line in the 1950s, neither was fulfilling.

“That wasn’t who he was,” said Coraleen Rawls, curator at the Motown Museum in Detroit.  “He was trying to be a square peg fitting into a round hole.”

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — When a high-ranking public official steps toward a news camera or a podium, he or she often utters words that have been scribed by someone else.

Publicity is scarce for the lonely speechwriter who feels the pressure of pushing out eloquent yet pragmatic words of wisdom, all for the benefit of a politician’s career and, hopefully, an evolving America.

Brian Forest has lived that life, jotting down words for speeches that reach the masses.
