ROSEVILLE — On Oct. 20, Roseville High School Principal Pete Hedemark completed a half marathon, 13.1 miles, in Detroit.

The 47-year-old Hedemark was not the only person from the school system or the area to participate in the Detroit Free Press Talmer Bank Marathon, which also includes half-marathon, relay and 5k races, though he is the first to admit he does not look the part of a runner.

MACOMB COUNTY — Two different comets currently whipping around the inner solar system could prove to be nice sights in the night sky in November and December, if astronomical projections are accurate.

Bob Berta, public outreach officer with the Warren Astronomical Society, said while it is too early to know for sure if one of the comets, ISON, will brighten to the point where a person could see it with binoculars or the naked eye, it should be apparent near the latter half of November. Alternately, the comet could break apart during its current sojourn near the sun.
