Today on Stateside:

  • Michigan is fifth in the nation in number of breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs, and Schoolcraft College is stepping up to train workers to brew, serve, and market all that beer.
  • Michigan Radio’s social media producer Kimberly Springer talks with us about whether your list of Facebook friends could help or hurt your credit.
  • Runners and walkers of all levels and ages will converge on Flint this weekend for the HealthPlus Crim Festival of Races.
  • Emily Fox talks with Linda Tellis, aka Lady Ace Boogie, about her new album and being a positive role model in the hip-hop community.
  • The last two winters saw the Great Lakes basically iced-over, leaving freighters and businesses at the mercy of the Lakes’ nine icebreakers. That’s why Michigan’s pushing Congress to approve funding for a new heavy icebreaker for the Great Lakes.
  • Bill McGraw joins us to talk about the rise in vacant land in Detroit and what the city plans to do with it.
