USE OF FORCE — Talk about strange bedfellows. Michigan’s largest police organizations and the American Civil Liberties Union are about to announce that they have agreed on a method of reporting violent encounters with police to the FBI. They see the voluntary program as a way of increasing transparency of police operations that both groups say they want. We talk to the Manistee County undersheriff, the ACLU and executives with state police and sheriffs association. By Evan Jones. FOR MANISTEE AND ALL POINTS.

U.S. NEWS – How well does the U.S. news media cover events beyond our borders? Not too well, according to MSU students from Brazil, Canada, Germany and France, even when it’s a major story elsewhere, such as the wildfires in the Amazon. As one put it: “It might be a cliché, but I feel that some Americans think they are alone in this world. And the major news outlets in America reflect that.” By Kamryn Romano. FOR LANSING CITY PULSE AND ALL POINTS.

AIR CHALLENGE — Michigan is one of six Great Lakes states challenging the Trump Administration’s attempt to limit California’s air pollution limits. They say it infringes on states’ rights and inhibits their ability to fight climate change. By Tasia Bass. FOR ALL POINTS

ISLE ROYALE SQUIRRELS— Isle Royale may be biologically less isolated and more connected than scientists believed. A new DNA study of its thriving red squirrel population discovered that it’s not a unique subspecies as long thought, but is related to mainland squirrels as far away as Labrador. It may have swum or crossed an ice bridge or have been introduced by humans. The results are important because they show “how dynamic and connected this island is with the mainland.” An Isle Royale National Park wildlife biologist explains. By Eric Freedman. FOR MARQUETTE, BAY MILLS, SAULT STE. MARIE, CHEBOYGAN, ST. IGNACE AND ALL POINTS.
