SMOKEBAN: A group of Michigan business owners and residents pushing to repeal the state’s ban on smoking in restaurants says a recent poll shows support for easing the 2010 law.

BURIEDSTREAMS: Developers have buried more than 350 miles of streams in Michigan over the last century, creating large areas researchers call “urban stream deserts.” These riverless areas favor concrete connections over urban parkways. They submerge surface streams, sometimes swallowing entire river systems. They harm the environment and become expensive flood control challenges. By Kevin Duffy.
