State Representative, Peter Pettalia, of Presque Isle, said a $1 million dollar state grant to help rebuild the Whittemore Road bridge in Iosco County is an excellent investment in the local economy and future growth in the region.  Pettalia said the bridge is crucial to the National Gypsum facilities in Grant and Sherman townships being able to move their products efficiently and affordable, along with improving traffic safety and flow on Whittemore and other roads in the area. Reconstructing the bridge to meet fully functional weight limits removes a significant challenge the company faces to maintain competitive operations at the quarry and plant, which provide dozens of jobs to families in the surrounding communities. The grant of $1.091 million is through the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Transportation Economic Development Fund. The Iosco County Road Commission is providing $275,309 in matching funds for the project.   Over time, the bridge has been downgraded from its original 60-ton weight limit to a 28-ton weigh limit, causing the company to reduce its truckloads or use longer alternative routes between its quarry and wallboard plant.

The Alpena Police Department would like to warn local businesses of a recent scam circling the Alpena area. According to Up North Live, Police say a local business owner received an invoice from a company named "Media Pages". The Media Pages' invoice showed the walking "Yellow Pages" finger logo that most are familiar with. The invoice listed the business address, owner's name, and telephone number. The total amount of the invoice was more than $400 dollars. Police say Media Pages led the owner to believe the invoice was for listing the business in the telephone directory. If you are a business owner and feel that you have been a victim of this scam, police say it is important the incident be documented by filing an official complaint with law enforcement. Business owners can also call the State Attorney General's office, the Federal Trade Commission's Identity Theft hotline, toll free at 1-877-438-4338.

Drowning Dangers – 12:01am EDT embargo
As families take to the water this summer, there is reason for extra caution: Two-thirds of fatal drownings occur each year between May and August. New research out today (6/29), conducted by Safe Kids Worldwide with support from Nationwide’s Make Safe Happen program, presents the scope of the drowning problem in the U.S. and uncovers misconceptions that are giving families a false sense of security and leading to these far too common tragedies.   In 2014, 784 children fatally drowned in the U.S., and more than half of them are under age 5. In fact, among preventable injuries, drowning is the leading cause of death for children 1-4 years of age, the second leading cause of death for children 5-14 years of age, and the third leading cause for children under 1 and older teens ages 15-17. Their campaign is out to draw awareness about about drowning dangers.

50th anniversary of NOW
Fifty years ago, when a small group of activists founded the National Organization for Women, the immediate issue that motivated them was sex discrimination in employment. They were irate that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was refusing to ban "Help Wanted Male" and "Help Wanted Female" job advertising.  Typical were ads seeking a "well-groomed gal" for a job as a receptionist.   Flash forward to today: Women comprise close to 50 percent of enrollment in U.S. medical schools and law schools. One-third of federal judges are women, compared to just a handful in the 1960s. The U.S military is opening all combat jobs to women.   At NOW and elsewhere in the diverse ranks of the feminist movement, there's deep pride in these changes, but also a consensus that the 50th anniversary — to be celebrated June 23 — is not an occasion to declare victory.
