Lansing’s mayor is praising preparations for the possibility of armed protests at the state Capitol on Sunday and over the next week.


Dianne Byrum has been reelected by the Michigan State University Board of Trustees to serve another two-year term chairing the board.

Byrum says safely reopening the MSU campus during a pandemic is “right up there” with budget and finance as a priority for 2021, saying that "trying to reopen and get back to whatever this new normal is going to be for students, faculty, staff, the state of Michigan, the nation, and so I think those have to be front and center.”

Ingham County’s top health official hopes the return of students to Michigan State University next week won’t mean more COVID-19 cases.
