Stateside for Monday, Sept. 28, 2015
Today on Stateside:
- Research performed by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha suggests that the water coming out of taps in Flint is poisoning its children.
- Even as state officials try to refute Dr. Hanna-Attisha's findings, the city of Flint issued a lead advisory. All of this has revived an effort to sue the city to force it to stop using water from the Flint River.
- The Tricycle Collective is working to help Detroiters try to save their homes from foreclosure.
- Michigan spends $30 million a year on its Pure Michigan campaign. But what happens when visitors drive around and have nowhere to stop and take in the beauty? Michigan's scenic turnouts are suffering just like its roads.
- We see an ever-growing number of apps, websites and digital tools every day. But Kentaro Toyoma tells us that all that technology will not produce meaningful change in Michigan without committed human partners.
- There's a tiny blues festival that's been going on for more than 20 years in a Detroit neighborhood. In a way it's a classic Detroit story: the locals love it but the city has an issue with it. Michigan Radio's Kyle Norris spent a Sunday afternoon at John's Carpet House.
