Today on Stateside:

  • The Canadians have chosen the team that will actually build the New International Trade Crossing Bridge, and they're setting up shop now in Windsor. What obstacles remain for the new bridge?
  • As college students head back to campus, we look at the long-term effect of debt, whether big debt burdens really pay off down the road, and an individual’s long journey struggling with student loans.
  • Beginning on Sept. 9, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will begin to apply lamprey-killing pesticides in the Muskegon River.
  • We learned how a summer job on Mackinac Island in 1960 led to a lifelong love affair with the island and its people.
  • We talked to an unconventional balloon sculptor. His work has just been featured in the newest edition of Ripley's "Believe It or Not! Reality Shock!" book and he's in the Guinness Book of World Records.
  • A reporter told us what he discovered, as he tracked down the history of a proposed dumping ground for radioactive fracking waste.
