Getting out to see the change of seasons has been a much-needed diversion this year. That may be especially true this fall, as many of us are thinking ahead to the cooped-up months of winter.

Today on Stateside, the state Supreme Court says Governor Gretchen Whitmer can’t extend her emergency declaration indefinitely amid the spread of COVID. That leaves local leaders in charge of putting plans in action. Also, we’ll check in with a teacher about returning to in-person instruction with her middle school students.
