Some roads were closed Tuesday in Kalamazoo in southwestern Michigan and the surrounding area due to high water. Potholes are a major safety issue following recent freezes and warmups. Around the state, pothole patching crews had their work delayed by heavy rains. In northern Michigan, an ice storm warning was in effect.

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Institute of Arts is preparing to open a baseball exhibition including works from its collection, rare cards, memorabilia and collectibles. "Play Ball: Baseball at the DIA" opens March 30 and runs through Sept. 16. The exhibition comes ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Detroit Tigers winning the 1968 World Series. The display will include Tigers cards, programs and other publications as well as former Tigers outfielder Al Kaline's autographed bat and memorabilia.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State officials say they've discovered a second cattle herd in southwestern Michigan infected with bovine tuberculosis.

Weathers served in the Army and the Michigan National Guard before joining the Detroit Police Department.
