Words Michiganders Mispronounce

It's a strange phenomenon.  We are one of the Northern most states and yet we run into native Michiganders that have, what sounds like, a Southern accent.  Then there are those that don't but still mispronounce a lot of words.  Now, I'm not perfect and just like you I can use a little learnin' more often than not.

Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Cop?

Our friends from Kalamazoo Public Safety Deputy Chief Karianne Thomas and Officer John Resseguie stopped by to let us know that the "Thin Blue Line" is getting thinner and they're looking for the best and brightest to fill the ranks.  And check this out...there is a sponsorship program that pays your salary while you train at the academy.  If you are a smart person of good character and have a sincere desire to better the community, this might be the carreer for you.   As Karianne and John explained, there is so much more about being a police officer than fighting crime and issuing tickets.
