·         Cow manure may become the source for clean water.

·         Poet and writer Keith Taylor shares his picks for summer reading.

·         A Los Angeles company called Celebrity Black Card hopes to attract A-list celebs to Northeast Michigan. So they're setting up an eco-friendly lodge west of Alpena from eco-friendly materials that come from Michigan companies.

·         General Motors is recalling another 3.2 million cars because of ignition-switch problems. What does that mean for consumer confidence and GM sales?

·         More than a half-million kids in Michigan who could be eating for free or at a reduced price won’t be fed this summer, even though the school lunch program does make food available through the summer.
