Howell, Brighton, Pinckney & South Lyon Declare Snow Emergencies

2/1/15 - Because of the heavy snow predicted for the region, the cities of Howell, Brighton and South Lyon and the Village of Pinckney have declared a snow emergency. Residents are required to remove their vehicles from the right-of-way and place them in driveways or garages to make the roads clear for snow plow crews that will be out all weekend trying to clear the snow from the roadways. Howell's emergency runs through 7pm Monday. Pinckney officials say the emergency will remain in effect there until Tuesday night, February 3. Additionally, the Howell Carnegie District Library has canceled activities for the duration of the snow emergency. (JK/TD)

Slumber Party Disaster Averted Following Carbon Monoxide Leak

News Photo 2/1/15 - A sweet 16 sleepover ended with a trip to the hospital in South Lyon this week due to a carbon monoxide leak. Andrea Spalding was hosting the party for her daughter Bria’s birthday. Andrea woke up with a headache and problems standing at about 5am Friday while the nine girls in attendance were sleeping. According to WXYZ, she initially just took headache medicine and went to bed, but she and the girls continued waking up in the night with stomach problems and difficulty standing. Eventually it became clear that everyone in the house was ill, and they were taken to a hospital where it was determined they had carbon monoxide poisoning. Tasteless and odorless, carbon monoxide from furnaces and heaters can build up in homes and interfere with the ability of occupants to absorb oxygen. Firefighters tested the home and found a carbon monoxide level of 20%, which is potentially fatal. A leaky furnace was determined to be the cause of the gas. Firefighters installed a carbon monoxide detector, and the victims were treated with oxygen at Providence Park Hospital in Novi. (TD)

Livingston County’s Jobless Rate Little Changed in December

News Photo 2/1/15 - Livingston County’s unemployment rate held mostly steady from November to December. Local and regional jobless figures were released recently for December. The Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget says total employment declined seasonally in most regions over the month while labor force levels were mixed. Regional labor markets were said to be stable for the month, with some of the smallest rate reductions occurring in the Ann Arbor and Detroit-Warren-Livonia region, which includes Livingston County. Livingston County’s individual unemployment rate improved just slightly by one tenth of a percentage point to 5.9% from November to December. Also improving for the second consecutive month was Livingston County’s overall ranking among Michigan’s 83 counties to 38th. Preliminary annual average data indicates that local area jobless rates fell substantially from 2013 to 2014, and that 2014 annual unemployment rates in most local labor markets were similar to pre-recession levels.

Brighton Church To Host Red Carpet Prom-Style Event

News Photo 2/1/15 - A night to shine that thousands of special needs individuals will likely never forget is planned in February. The 2/24 Community Church in Brighton is one of dozens across the country taking part in “Night to Shine” – a prom-style red carpet evening of dining and dancing. The nationwide event is being organized by the foundation of former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow on February 13th.
2/42 Director of Family Ministries Eric Rauch tells WHMI they had an opportunity to partner with the foundation a few months ago and provide the red carpet treatment to individuals with special needs. Each prom will include special elements, consisting of a red carpet entrance with paparazzi, boutonnieres and corsages, hair and makeup beauty stations, a dance floor and food. The Night to Shine prom attendee list is already at capacity and will take place from 6 to 9pm February 13th. However, a team of volunteers is being assembled to assist in hosting the special guests. Those wanting to get involved are asked to contact the 2 /42 Community Church in Brighton. (JM)

Howell Woman Enters Plea To Online Harassment

News Photo 1/31/15 - A guilty plea has been entered by a Howell-area woman who police say posted a message on the Internet intending to harass another woman. 39-year-old Holly Laballister was charged with three counts each of unlawful posting of a message and using a computer to commit a crime, as well as being a 2nd time habitual offender. Her previous offenses include receiving and concealing stolen property in 2012 and 4th degree child abuse in 2014. According to police, on three separate occasions in 2013, Laballister posted about another woman on an Internet message board. Prosecutors say those messages were posted without the victim’s consent and led several people to harass the victim with unwanted phone calls. Laballister will be sentenced on February 19th. (TD)

Student Athlete of the Week 1-26-14

Sports Photo It's time once again to recognize another outstanding performance from the Livingston County area as our Student Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Bob Maxey Ford of Howell. This week we'd like to recognize Howell hockey forward Hunter Hirzel as our Student Athlete of the Week. The Highlanders hockey team went on to rout Pinckney 8-0 on the shoulders of Hirzel. He accumulated 6 points on the night, 2 goals and 4 assists. That win sets up a huge showdown for the KLAA West lead against Hartland. Once again we'd like to recognize Howell hockey forward Hunter Hirzel as our Student Athlete of the Week. Congratulations on an outstanding performance from Bob Maxey Ford of Howell, and WHMI, Livingston County's own 93-5.
 
Michigan Headlines

WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Detroit is bracing for its first major snowstorm of the year this weekend, and it could make getting to Super Bowl parties tricky across most of southern Michigan. The National Weather Service says a winter storm warning took effect Saturday evening in southwestern Michigan and early Sunday in the southeast. Counties across the southern tier of the state are expected to receive between 8 and 12 inches of snow.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Prosecutors say a southeastern Michigan police officer won't face criminal charges in the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old woman who confronted officers with a knife. The Ann Arbor News reported Friday that Washtenaw County prosecutors found Ann Arbor officer David Ried acted in self-defense on November 9th.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a shot was fired but nobody was injured during a dispute in a suburban Detroit theater. The Detroit News and broadcasters report the AMC Star Southfield was closed Friday evening after the shot. Officers say the gun was recovered and a man taken into custody told them he fired it.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Rick Snyder and lawmakers are making third-graders' reading proficiency a significant focus this year. They have unspecified plans to improve kids' literacy long before they're 8 or 9 years old. But it remains unclear how far policymakers will go to deal with students who still aren't reading well enough by the end of third grade.
