DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 10 AM

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for St. Joe and Branch counties until 10 AM.  Dense fog has already been observed in many cities in West Michigan including Kalamazoo.  The ADVISORY may be expanded to include more counties.  Burning off fog this time of year is tough thanks to a low sun angle.  Fog may linger in some locations until midday.

Can authorities be held in contempt for suicide? story image
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a case that will determine whether the Kent County sheriff's department can be held in contempt for failing to prevent a suicide.
   
Stephen Bradley fatally shot himself in 2004, despite a court order days earlier that directed deputies to pick him up before he harmed himself or others. The sheriff's department didn't follow the order.
   
Bradley's sister, Nancy Mick, filed a petition in Probate Court seeking compensation and requesting that the sheriff's department be held in contempt.
   
The sheriff's department says it's immune under Michigan law and can't be pursued with a contempt petition. A Kent County judge agreed, but the state appeals court sided with the family. The Michigan Supreme Court hears arguments Wednesday.
