GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Police say they solved a Grand Rapids bank robbery because of the unusual stationery. A note demanding $50 and $20 bills was written on a piece of paper from a probation office. Investigators say they traced the paper to Michael Sterling Jr. because a date matched his visit to the office. A brother, Dominke Sterling, was ordered to stand trial Wednesday. Michael Sterling is in custody in Pennsylvania.

DETROIT (AP) - The autonomous Uber SUV that struck and killed an Arizona pedestrian in March spotted the woman about six seconds before hitting her, but did not stop because the system used to automatically apply brakes in potentially dangerous situations had been disabled. In a preliminary report on the crash in Tempe, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that emergency braking is not enabled while Uber's cars are under computer control to reduce the potential for erratic behavior.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Victims of childhood sexual assaults would have more time to sue and athletic trainers would be required to report suspected abuse under legislation passing in Michigan after the Larry Nassar scandal. The state House approved dozens of bills Thursday. One measure would give Nassar victims a window to sue retroactively. Many survivors reached a settlement with Michigan State University, but money was set aside for future claims and other entities such as USA Gymnastics still face lawsuits.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder's administration and key lawmakers have struck a budget deal that includes using a surplus to boost road spending, school-safety initiatives and savings. The agreement was reached Thursday. State budget spokesman Kurt Weiss says the deal includes an increase of more than $400 million on infrastructure spending, an additional $115 million for the "rainy day" fund and $58 million to help schools improve their security and hire more counselors.
