Today on Stateside:

·         Green Infrastructures could be the answer to preparing for severe weather like the massive rainfall in Metro Detroit last week.

·         An MSU study shows that adolescents who have a healthy fear of crime are less likely to become a victim.

·         Our insatiable need for energy could be colliding with our desire to preserve Michigan's natural beauty. Case in point: some 97-hundred acres of Hartwick Pines State Park near Grayling could be included in a DNR auction October 29th for a lease of mineral rights.

·         A story from Failure Lab Detroit.

·         Controversy has hit the small town of Barry Township over its police force. Specifically, the nearly three dozen unpaid, reserve police reserve officers. The non-certified officers carrying guns, ride in patrol cars and, according to some, use too much force.

·         Michigan's Grape and Wine Industry Council recognized eight Michigan wines as "best in class" at their recent awards ceremony.
