WARREN — It seems like only yesterday that we were worried about protecting our tender tomato plants from frost, thinning rows of lettuce and carrots, and getting our annuals in the ground before Memorial Day.

METRO DETROIT — With a new school year approaching, it’s time to get back into the groove of studying and doing homework.

Several local educators have offered tips to help create the ideal workspace for students to do their homework at home.

WARREN — Handheld flamethrowers, of all things, have emerged as a hot topic in Warren.

The debate is being fueled by a proposed citywide ban requested by Mayor Jim Fouts, and the developer’s assertion that the public’s right to own a device capable of shooting liquid fire up to 25 feet — for fun, to control weeds or to melt snow and ice — should be protected.

The XM42 flamethrower is assembled in a Warren machine shop and sold through a business office in Troy by The Ion Productions Team, according to founder and CEO Chris Byars.

On Aug. 12, the price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil hovered around the $43 per barrel mark. Nevertheless, AAA Michigan reported a major recent swing in gas prices — although the state’s gas prices averaged around $2.48 per gallon Aug. 11, that increased to $2.58 per gallon Aug. 12 and to around $2.81 per gallon Aug. 13.

DETROIT — U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan, unveiled a bill in Detroit on Aug. 10 that would require an international review of a Canadian power company’s proposal to bury nuclear waste less than a mile from the Lake Huron shore.

If passed, the legislation would invoke the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 between the U.S. and Canada, which would require the International Joint Commission to study the risks to the Great Lakes watershed and the State Department to negotiate with Canada to wait for those study results before approving a waste site.
