So I got a chance to talk to my fellow MSU alum Jemele Hill prior to her Award Tour through East Lansing as apart of Michigan State's Homecoming this weekend, including getting her insight on her journey from Detroit through MSU...including almost being a wolverine. Wait...what? The story is on MLive Lansing
Hill, a Detroit native and 1997 MSU graduate, still wonders how she was chosen to be Grand Marshal of the parade, which will start at 6 p.m. on Friday.

So today will be the last day of this fundraiser. If anyone would still like to donate, It'll be up until about midnight. You guys have raised enough money to take down 3 of these bills. Thanks again for the support. You're really appreciated.
Greetings visitors. I've never been one to rely on the kindness of strangers. People who know me well know that I hate asking people for help of any kind but I have hit a point of desperation. On Feb. 26, I had surgery to repair an umbilical hernia. I do have medical insurance and that has been w...

A bizarre set of circumstances cost two men their lives on Monday. My story on the young man in East Lansing who was in the midst of turning his life around on +MLive.com 
Jordan Rogers recently got engaged and was devoting himself to becoming a family man when he was fatally shot Monday by a suspect who also is believed to have killed a Rite Aid pharmacist.

My alma mater, Michigan State University, produced a documentary profiling 9 exceptional students named InsideOut. Here's my exclusive story on how it came together and an interview with an exceptional young lady from Detroit who was apart of it on +MLive.com 
InsideOut is no reality TV show. As a part of MSU's annual President's Report, the university undertook the project as a documentary that followed nine students for the fall semester of 2013 and showed the differing lives of an MSU student.

I got a chance to talk to a really cool WWII vet who spends his days creating elaborate scrapbooks documenting the military service of his family and friends. The story is on +MLive.com right now.
Woodruff has taken up the task of creating scrapbooks for his relatives who are veterans, including those who fought in wars as far back as the Civil War, Revolutionary War, and the lesser known Pequot War of 1634.

At 94 year old, Sgt. Charles Zanger can still give his story of serving in WWII as if it happened yesterday. The story on +MLive.com.
At 94 years old, Zanger can recall, with vivid clarity, his service during the war that reshaped the country and the entire world, starting with the day he got "the call."

Since 2003, DUI/DWI arrests among women have gone up by 20% nationwide. Here's my story on +MLive.com  looking at new research that shows some of the reasons why.
Between 2003 and 2012, the last year statistics were taken, DUI arrests among women increased from 174,000 to 211,000, which is a 21 percent increase nationwide. A recent study sought out reasons to why this trend has occurred.
