  • State Democrats and Republicans will convene this weekend. What could be the highlights?
  • Northland in Oakland County is one of the very first shopping centers in America. It also represents the changing fortune of malls.
  • We talked with the Michigan country vet who's become an unlikely reality TV star. Dr. Jan Pol shared how he’s practicing veterinary medicine with a camera crew in tow.
  • A new anti-scrapping law was supposed to make it harder for scrap metal thieves. But one Detroit lawmakers says “not so much."
  • Historical societies are having a tough time. Michigan Radio's Kyle Norris has been looking into that.
