Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts to around 25 mph. Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows in the lower 40s. West winds at 10 mph. Gusts up to 20 mph in the evening. MARINE FORECAST: Today: Northwest wind 10 to 15 knots with gusts to around 25 knots. Mostly clear. Waves 2 to 3 feet. Tonight: West wind 5 to 10 knots. Mostly clear. Waves 2 feet or less.

Word of the day: onomatopoeia (on-uh-mat-uh-PEE-uh) which means the formation of a word, as cuckoo, meow, honk, or boom, by imitation of a sound made by or associated with its referent. Onomatopoeia stems from the Greek onomatopoiía meaning “making of words,” drawing from ónoma meaning “name” and poieîn meaning “to make.” It entered English in the mid-1500s.

Rep. Cole recently spoke about House passage Tuesday of his HB 5582, that  amends state law  by adding “morel mushrooms” to the limited list of items that are exempt from required food safety training.  Michigan residents were able to forage for morels and sell them to local businesses and restaurants in Michigan until 2015 when the state adopted a law to require mandatory certification training to sell morels.
