Gay Marriage Won't be Recognized in Michigan

Gay marriage will not be recognized in Michigan. Governor Snyder told reporters on Wednesday that the marriages of about 300 same-sex couples from last week, will not count. On Friday, a U.S. District Judge overturned Michigan's gay marriage ban but was then temporarily stayed, or suspended, the next day by the Circuit Court of Appeals. Snyder says the stay reinstated Michigan's law, which prohibits same-sex marriages. This means those that were married last weekend, will not have access to state benefits.

Water Main Break in Manistee

A water main break in Manistee closes Washington Street. Police reported the problem yesterday morning and are asking people to avoid Washington Street between Harrison and Hughes. Crews worked on the break yesterday but a section of the pipe will need to be removed to fix it today. Some residents can expect their water to be shut off. Water may also be rusty due to the change in flow.
