LICENSE SUSPENSION: The threat of losing your driver’s license for offenses unrelated to dangerous driving would be eliminated under a bill pushed by advocates for low-income Michigan residents. Suspensions for such things criminalize poverty and make it hard to get to work, go to grocery stores or visit doctors, they say. We hear from an Adrian lawmaker and the Michigan League for Public Policy. By Zholdas Orisbayev. FOR BLISSFIELD, LANSING CITY PULSE AND ALL POINTS.

ENERGY CRISIS: A new Michigan study uses the COVID-19 pandemic to help reveal existing energy crises such as costly utility bills and the dangers of energy pollution. It cites problems in rural areas and tribal nations from Michigan, but the same issues can be seen across the United States and globally. The study by a Michigan Technological University researcher was inspired by the state’s controversial pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. By Taylor Haelterman. FOR SAULT STE. MARIE, TRAVERSE CITY, PETOSKEY, CHEBOYGAN, BAY MILLS, CORP! LANSING CITY LIMITS AND ALL POINTS

MUTE SWANS: Mute swans, introduced into Michigan a century ago, are big trouble, and their population is moving into urban areas.

DISAPPEARING HISTORY: The once-honored Beechwood Store in Iron River Township, the Flint Brewing Co., the shipwrecked schooner Alvin Clark in Menominee, the Fenton Seminary and the majestic Grand Riviera Theater in Detroit have all disappeared from the prestigious National Register of Historic Places. The National Park Service recently removed their recognition because they’ve been demolished, no longer retain their historic integrity and cannot convey their historic significance, the State Historic Preservation Office says. By Eric Freedman. FOR MARQUETTE, BAY MILLS, SAULT ST. MARIE, LANSING CITY PULSE, ST. IGNACE AND ALL POINTS.
