A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
There have been a lot of empty desks and classrooms lately and many schools gained another day off this week.
The big question school officials are asking is how will they make up for the missed time?
Some Lenawee County schools have had anywhere from 13 to 16 snow days this year. That's well over the six the state budgets for.
To make up the time superintendents say they're working on changing some scheduled half days to full days later this year, but they say most of the time will have to be made up by tacking extra days on to the end of the year.
Superintendents say in Michigan there has been more support for that approach rather than making the school days longer.
"When you think about it, adding a minute to a school day compared to going to school for an entire additional day there's probably a greater impact on learning by adding that day to the end of the year," said Superintendent for Adrian Schools Bob Behnke.
Behnke says they will still have Good Friday and spring break off of school as originally scheduled. He says their district will most likely have to add 6 to 9 days on to the end of the year.
