LANSING, MI – Michigan has an interactive mapping tool for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts.
The state Department of Natural Resources and Environment says Mi-HUNT can help people plan their trips. It allows users to view and navigate through Michigan public lands that are open to hunting and trapping.
People may look at vegetation types; topography; and recreational facilities such as campgrounds, trails and boat launches. There's also aerial photography, street maps and directions.
The 2010 World Stem Cell Summit gets underway today in Detroit.
Michigan State University is a co-host of the three-day conference. Michigan University Research Corridor partners MSU, the University of Michigan, and Wayne State University will provide many of the speakers.
EAST LANSING, MI – It's been more than a decade since Michigan State and Michigan entered their matchup unbeaten, and that's exactly what's in store next weekend in Ann Arbor. The Spartans held off Wisconsin 34-24 Saturday to move up to No. 17 in the AP poll, one spot ahead of Denard Robinson and the Wolverines.
BALTIMORE – Brandon Inge homered, Johnny Damon singled in the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 Sunday to end a six-game skid and avoid a losing season.
Detroit won despite being outhit 9-6. The Tigers finished 81-81, only the second time in five seasons under manager Jim Leyland they failed to have a winning record.
GREEN BAY, WI – Charles Woodson returned an interception 48 yards for a touchdown and the Green Bay Packers narrowly held off a comeback by the Detroit Lions for a 28-26 victory Sunday.
The Packers (3-1) led 28-14 after Woodson scored early in the third quarter, but the Lions rallied for four straight Jason Hanson field goals to cut the lead to two points in the fourth quarter. A final drive by the Packers ran out the clock.
East Lansing, MI – Kirk Cousins lofted a 1-yard touchdown pass to B.J. Cunningham on fourth down with 2:43 remaining, helping No. 24 Michigan State win its second straight game without coach Mark Dantonio, 34-24 over No. 11 Wisconsin on Saturday.
Michigan State University head football coach had planned to return to his duties today against Wisconsin. Instead, he won't be in Spartan Stadium at all, due to a blood clot discovered during a routine post-op examination.
Dantonio suffered a heart attack two weeks ago following the game against Notre Dame. He had planned to coach from the press box today.
DETROIT – General Motors says its sales sputtered in September, a sign that Americans are nervous about taking on debt to buy big-ticket items.
Sales for the biggest U.S. automaker fell about 6% from August but were up 10.5% over September of last year. However, it was easy for sales to improve from last September. That's because that month was hurt by low demand following the government's Cash for Clunkers program.
