WE’RE NOT SLIPPING: The CNS crew rolled into the newsroom this morning over a fresh snowfall — the first of the season in East Lansing — but there’s no slipping or sliding in its offering of news stories. There’s something for hunters, environmentalists, potential politicians, travelers and anyone concerned about safety. On Monday, the correspondents will meet with Michigan Department of Agriculture officials.
REMINDER: Don’t forget — next week is in-depth week. Expect a regular file and a myriad of in-depthers from your correspondents.
