Bath Township police at a loss to find person who left puppy to freeze to deathby Belinda Thurston
The nightmare doesn’t leave her head: the puppy shivering, whimpering, maybe barking till it was voiceless in below-freezing temperatures, sitting in its own feces and trapped in a crate.

The system is supported by owners who buy shares. Over the years that price leveled to $60 per share per vote.

Cynthia Foley exhibit features surreal animals, unexpected facesby Jonathan Griffith
Cadillac-based artist Cynthia Foley smiled warmly at a crowd of wide-eyed attendees at the opening reception of her new exhibit, “Imagining Context: Seeing and Being Seen,” which opened Friday at the Lansing Art Gallery. One look at her complex works, layering textures and illustrations, and you immediately appreciate her presence, hoping you can steal some of her time — as much as to inquire about her work as to express your admiration for it. And while you can’t help but want to analyze the works being exhibited, Foley’s coy demeanor suggests you just look on and enjoy. The following exchange is exemplary.
