“The best thing to do is leave them at home where they’re safe,” he said. “Temperatures can climb really high (in a car) even on a relatively cool day, even if you crack the window.”

FRASER/CLINTON TOWN-SHIP — On May 5, after numerous months and town hall meetings in which legislators attempted to inform the public of the proposed changes to the gasoline tax, the 80-20 results marked the most lopsided loss ever for an amendment to Michigan’s constitution.
