Fight against blight: Bay City leaders look to tackle 80+ buildings on dangerous buildings list.
Bay City soon will begin knocking down 14 blighted properties with money from a state grant. That only scratches the surface, however, of the city's blight issue. Armed with a list of more than 80 "dangerous" properties, various groups and individuals in the city have big ideas on how to deal with the situation going forward.

I'll be live covering tonight's Bay City Commission meeting, where the commission votes to approve a contract for a new city manager.

"If the recent rate of decline continues for Bay Area Catholic Schools for the next 12 years, the district would have about 155 enrolled students, or about 60 percent fewer students than today."

Personally, I think we can all walk a little more. But a trolley would be pretty cool.

Journalist hungry for excellence and the next big scoop.
Introduction
Hi — I'm Andrew Dodson, a journalist that has had too many jobs in the past four years. I started my journalism career with MLive.com and the Bay City Times where I covered everything from education to business to city and government news. After getting engaged to my lovely wife of more than two years, we made the decision to move to Colorado. That's where the fun began.

Scouring for jobs, I ended up working in a multimillion dollar mansion on top of a mountain for some kind of sketchy website (I'm still not sure what they do...), a luxury travel club based in downtown Denver, a plethora of clients as a full-time freelance writer and for RE/MAX, at the company's headquarters in Denver. Throughout 2013, I worked as the technology editor for TVNewsCheck, a great trade publication that covers the TV broadcasting industry. I loved writing for TVNewsCheck and learned a lot about an industry I knew little to nothing about, but I continued to miss community journalism. There's nothing better than telling a story that's read by the community you live in.

So, fast forward to today. Starting in January 2014, I'll be back in Michigan with MLive.com and the Bay City Times where I'll be covering city hall and picking up some editing duties. I'm excited to be back in community journalism and can't wait to start breaking stories.

Cheers to big things in 2014!
