Donya Davis served seven years of a 22- year prison sentence after a sexual assault victim identified him in a lineup. Post-conviction DNA testing tied the crime to another man. The 36-year-old Detroit man was released in summer 2014. What do you say to him now? Congratulations?

In Wednesday’s Hope in One golf outing, the score isn’t what matters.

A survey of Lansing's musical landscapeby Rich Tupica
A walkable Lansing bakery seems to be an anomaly. Roma Bakery sits on a busy one-way street a few blocks north of downtown. (It’s also the temporary home of former Old Town sweet shop, Whipped). Bake N’ Cakes is located off U.S. Highway 127 on the east side, making it more of a destination location. And when Korner Krust Bread (née Great Harvest Bread Co.) went kaput in 2012, it wasn’t because customers couldn’t find it’s shop on the corner of Washington Square and Allegan Street.
