CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a man illegally operated a dental practice in the basement of his suburban Detroit home and allegedly used his church to get referrals. Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith says he’s charging the Clinton Township man with being a health professional operating without a license. Smith says authorities “are thankful that someone had the courage to come forward” and report the man. A search found a dentist chair, an X-ray machine, molds for teeth and other items at the home.

DETROIT (AP) — Michigan’s lieutenant governor has sold a fire-damaged Detroit apartment building at a loss after spending about $226,000 to try to revive it. The Detroit News reports that the eight-unit building was sold for $190,000 to a real-estate company. Garlin Gilchrist II bought the building from the Detroit Land Bank Authority in 2016. The property became an issue in the fall campaign when neighbors complained it was an eyesore.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Yo-Yo Ma brought both music and a call for social change to Flint, Michigan. The famed cellist performed for more than 100 fans inside a gymnasium at Berston Field House during his visit Thursday to the city that’s still feeling the effects of a lead-contaminated water crisis. But Ma says he found a community that is about much more than “water problems.”

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is offering qualified support of a federal plan to prevent invasive Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes. Whitmer submitted comments this week on a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plan to install fish-blocking devices at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam near Joliet, Illinois. Whitmer said she agreed with fortifying the facility but was concerned about a recent spike in the price tag, now estimated at $778 million.
