Union Says Howell School Board Candidate Hijacked Email System

News Photo 10/30/14 - The Howell teacher’s union is accusing a board of education candidate of hijacking its email distribution list. Howell Education Association President Zachary Kasprzak says write-in candidate Brent Earl sent a political message to members via the union's list of teacher's home email addresses. Kasprzak says the union does not typically allow political candidates to make direct contact with members through their email system and members were upset by Earl's use of it. He says the email from Earl was addressed directly to all HPS teachers and came from Brent’s email address, which was not on the teacher distribution list. He says Earl was basically lobbying members to support his candidacy and gave reasons why they should. He added that the email also contained information regarding Earl’s wife, who is a teacher in the district. But Kasprzak told WHMI he doesn’t feel comfortable releasing that information to the general public and that’s why he’s withholding the email. Earl’s wife withdrew from the union during the opt-out window in August, which was reportedly communicated via email to members and prompted Earl’s response – something Kasprzak would not disclose as union their communications are considered private. He did say they have constant contact with members on various issues and topics to keep them informed. Earl tells WHMI that he respects the HEA and his email was intended to clarify questions he was getting. He says they received an email that had all of the email addresses CC’d and in essence, he replied to all. Earl says he’s trying to do the right thing and provide a positive message to do good things for the district. As for the decision of his wife to withdraw from the union, Earl says it was a family consideration and it had absolutely nothing to do with the HEA or its values. Earl says while some may not agree with the decision, hopefully they can understand and respect their right to make it. (JM)

Fireworks Explode During Green Oak Township Fire

10/30/14 - A fire late last night in Green Oak Township sent fire and smoke into the sky as firefighters worked into the early morning hours to extinguish the flames. Green Oak Township Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Gentry says they were called just before midnight to a car fire on Avon Drive in the Island Lake Subdivision. Firefighters arrived to find a fully involved car and garage fire that was extending into the house. First responders, which included Green Oak police, awakened and evacuated four residents of the house who were unaware of the fire, removing them and several dogs and a bird from the home. Green Oak firefighters, assisted by units from the Brighton, South Lyon, Lyon Township and Hamburg Township departments, extinguished the fire, which destroyed the garage and car and left the home standing but severely damaged. The cause of the fire, which appears to have originated from the car, is under investigation. Livingston County EMS and the county’s Disaster Assistance Response Team assisted firefighters at the scene and the Red Cross is aiding the displaced residents, who were renters and without insurance. The home did not appear to have functioning smoke detectors. Gentry says that if it wasn’t for the neighbor noticing the blaze and calling 911 the outcome could have been much worse. He reminds residents that with the coming fall time change, everyone needs to replace the batteries in their smoke detectors. (JK)

Huron Valley Schools Examining Open Carry Issue

News Photo 10/30/14 - The prospect of having guns in schools isn’t sitting so well with one area district. A parent approached officials within the Huron Valley Schools district about his intent to open carry in a couple of buildings. Due to loopholes in state law, so long as a person has the proper permits and licenses, they are within their legal rights to open carry a gun in a public school building. The parent has a proper license but regardless, Superintendent Jim Baker told the Detroit Free Press he doesn't like the idea of guns in schools. Baker credited the parent with being very forthright and explaining his intent in advance, but said that doesn’t change how he feels. The board of education discussed the matter earlier this month. Trustee Jeff Long indicated he would look into the matter further and intends to put forth a resolution that would prohibit the open carrying of weapons on school properties. While he did not object to open carry rights, he said he didn’t see a need for a parent to open carry a weapon in any of their buildings. (JM)

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's city clerk says about 40 percent of the city's 529,000 registered voters will cast ballots in Tuesday's general election. That's would be up from Detroit's 31 percent turnout the last time Michigan elected a governor in 2010.

DETROIT (AP) - A few hours after General Motors regional manager Rikk Wilde (WILD-eee) committed a major-league blunder on national television, the dreaded call came from his boss. But instead of a lecture, Wilde got support from Chevrolet chief Brian Sweeney. He still has a job, even though he nervously stumbled his way through presenting pickup truck keys to the World Series MVP. And a GM spokesman says Sweeney gave him a pep talk about helping dealers close out a strong sales month.

YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A new museum planned for the site in Michigan where Rosie the Riveter built World War Two bombers has been given its name. Museum officials today revealed that the attraction west of Detroit will be called the National Museum of Aviation and Technology at Historic Willow Run.

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - A pregnant 22-year-old Muskegon woman has agreed to stand trial in the steak knife stabbing of the father of her 6-year-old daughter. Police tell the Muskegon Chronicle that Shondrea Parker got in an argument with 24-year-old Calvin Webb and stabbed him in the chest October 16th. She appeared in district court Thursday and waived her right to a show-cause hearing.
