Williamston downtown holds ‘quirky’ secrets, sense of inclusion

Wander up the stairs of the Williamston True Value Hardware store, and it has its own storage room. There are remnants from the past, including a run-down kitchen and bathroom from decades ago. But the real treasure lies in the basement. Both the second floor and basement are hidden from the public eye, much like the nested relationship between businesses in the area. It’s there, just unseen.

East Lansing supports homegrown artist

After a year filled with trips to and from Washington, D.C., balancing schoolwork and attempting to find time for a social life, 16-year-old Ajah Montalvo is finally showing the world what she has been up to. Montalvo is a junior at East Lansing High School, and has just released the first single off her debut extended play record. The song is “DMT”, and the music video, which already has more than 3,000 views on YouTube, features fellow ELHS students dancing and singing to the catchy tune. By age 2, Montalvo, sitting in her car seat in the back of the car, was humming along to songs. At 9, Montalvo found a passion for performing.
