The Detroit News

Today is Thursday, April 28, 2016, and we have a name! The new Red Wings arena is going to be called Little Caesars Arena.

The name was unveiled Thursday at the site of the future arena just north of downtown

Campus suicides drawing attention

  • Homicides land on the front page, but every year, three times more people kill themselves. It’s an issue that a growing chorus of students are talking about on college campuses, where suicide is the second-most common cause of death and mental health is a top concern.

  • Five emaciated and lethargic hound puppies are being nursed back to health after they were found huddling in a ditch last week in Dundee Township, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and animal shelter officials.
