Welcome back to Stateside!

Congress kicked off 2013 with a deal averting the dreaded "fiscal cliff."

On today's show, Cyndy speaks with Michigan State University economics professor Charley Ballard about what that means for the state.

Also, was 2012 the warmest year on record? And what kind of weather can we expect for 2013?

And finally, it's back-to-school day for students in Muskegon Heights. Michigan Radio's Lindsey Smith breaks down the bumpy progress of Michigan's very first, fully privatized school district.
