Mishigama Craft Brewing is looking to locate at 124 Pearl St. in suite 100 of the Centennial Center at the corner of North Washington Street, one block north of Michigan Avenue. This space was formerly occupied by Korey's Krispy Krunchy Chicken, a restaurant that closed in May 2014.

The Ann Arbor city council unanimously passed a resolution at its Monday meeting to take sides in the ongoing fight over the legality of same sex marriage. The council voted to be included in the municipalities officially supporting the case of the Hazel Park couple, April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse. The two are suing for legal marriage to receive joint custody of their four children. Michigan's constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage was declared unconstitutional by a Detroit court and then was upheld by a higher court. DeBoer and Rowse have appealed their case to the Supreme Court. The ruling will affect the legality of same-sex marriage in all 50 states. According to MLive the case will go before the Supreme Court sometime in June.

Help WEMU hold on to our title! Voting begins January 31st.
