TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - President Donald Trump is throwing out a policy devised by his predecessor to protect U.S. oceans and the Great Lakes, replacing it with a new approach that emphasizes use of the waters to promote economic growth. President Barack Obama issued his policy in 2010 after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Trump says it was too bureaucratic. His approach involves fewer governmental bodies and promises to promote a strong ocean economy.

TROY, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court will hear arguments in a dispute over whether a Detroit suburb can charge and keep certain fees to make up for past deficits in the building department. The case comes from Troy. The Oakland County city hired a private company to perform building inspections and other services. A portion of the fees charged for services was put in Troy's general fund. That surplus totaled nearly $1.1 million over three years.

SPRING ARBOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 3-year-old doe in Jackson County's Spring Arbor Township is believed to have had chronic wasting disease. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says landowners found the ill-looking deer's carcass on their property. The disease affects the central nervous systems of deer, elk and moose, attacking the brains of infected animals and producing small lesions that result in death. Initial testing of tissue samples came back positive for the doe. The state is awaiting further test results.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University's interim president says the campus has been rid of the likelihood of another Larry Nassar emerging. In a Thursday interview with The Associated Press, John Engler says he is confident that policy changes have ensured the conditions that failed to stop Nassar from sexually abusing hundreds of girls and women while employed as a doctor there have been addressed.
