Two Republicans and one Democrat won seats on the Michigan Supreme Court last month. But voters didn't know that looking at the ballot. 


Two State lawmakers have introduced proposals that would change Michigan's term limits.   


Portage Republican Margaret O’Brien will represent Kalamazoo County in the state Senate. That’s the result of a three-day hand recount of votes in the 20th District that ended Wednesday. It found that O’Brien defeated Kalamazoo Democrat Sean McCann by 61 votes. That’s two more votes for O’Brien than in the official results certified by state and local officials after the election in November. The recount found 36,645 votes for O'Brien; 36,584 for McCann; and 7,171 for Libertarian Lorence Wenke.


A proposal to crackdown on “cyber-bullying” has been approved by the state Senate. The Gongwer News Service says the measure would require that schools have policies on the issue. It follows incidents around the country in which students were harassed by other students on Facebook and other social media.

But some critics say the bill goes too far because it would require districts to control the behavior of students outside of school.
