Kids from around the Kalamazoo area are looking forward to the fifth annual Peace Pizzazz at Bronson Park.

Kalamazoo Public Schools board trustee Mark Totten announced his resignation Friday. Totten did not give a reason for resigning, but he is running for Michigan Attorney General this November.

About 300 students and staff from Kalamazoo Central High School can expect to undergo a skin test for tuberculosis next week. That’s because they might have been exposed to the disease by a student from Central who, Kalamazoo Public Schools confirmed today, has a case of active TB.

KPS learned about the case last Friday from a hospital treating the student, says Kalamazoo County Public Health Department Director  Linda Vail.
