SPRINGTIME: Whether or not the weather shows it, spring is here, as reflected in several of your stories this file: State parks’ booming — and successful — central reservation system, healthy tips for eating out over holidays, and the dangers from those cute Easter pets. Other stories cover complaints about a state plan to allow higher levels of dioxin, fears among State Police troopers over possible loss of several of their posts, and a survey that shows how much life has changed in Detroit in 25 years.
HIGHER ED AHEAD: Our group interview Monday is with Glenn Stevens, executive director of the Presidents’ Council, State College and Universities. He’ll brief us on such matters as how budget crunches are affecting the four-year schools, the high-tech explosion on campuses and the controversy over dual enrollments.
