    Layers of mystery continue to twist around the sad, bizarre case of little Aryanna Inman, who died in a Macomb house fire last week. The 2-year-old’s death seems all the more peculiar in light of two new pieces of information I confirmed Wednesday: * It turns out her family was hit by not just one, not just two, but a remarkable three fires at three different rental homes this year. * The state has removed her surviving brother from the care of her father and his girlfriend. In fact, child-welfare workers began investigating a neglect charge regarding the children’s home...

    A prisoner is suing the Macomb County Jail for not allowing him to sign his marriage certificate after tying the knot with his fiance. Waukeen Spraggins said his vows through a glass window in the visitor's room with a minister present in February. But deputies refused to let him sign because high-security inmates are barred from marrying in jail. Spraggins was considered a high risk after he escaped from jail in 1999.

During this period in our nation's history we need a leader who recognizes the threat and does not shy from it. That leader is George Bush. During this global challenge we cannot afford a leader with a finger-to-the-wind attitude such as Sen. John...

    Macomb prosecutor announces he will not run for re-election The Associated Press 4/19/2004, 5:58 p.m. ET MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich.

The grand jury is investigating whether Marlinga traded prosecutorial favors for political contributions to his campaign. He testified in front of the grand jury twice...
