This is Bane.

Bane is a tracking dog with the Michigan State Police, working out of the Alpena Post in northern lower Michigan, and he is lost.  On November 13, Bane and his partner, Trooper Jamie Bullis were out looking for a dementia patient who had wandered away.  They were in very dense brush and because of that Bane was working off-lead.  During the search they kicked up a deer which crossed his path within a couple of feet, and being a dog, Bane took off after the deer.  That was the last time he was seen.

If you are reading this and know anything about where Bane might be, please call 989-354-4101 or 989-734-2204 
Here are Bane's web and Facebook pages\findbane

I'm officially sick of all this Nick Saban talk

Well, MSU is going to face Alabama in the Capital One Bowl on New Years Day. It's been official for less than a day and already I'm sick of the storyline being MSU facing it's old coach Nick Saban - football's version of Larry Brown.

Friends, the story here is a team who was picked to finish seventh in the Big Ten having an 11-1 season and getting a share of the conference championship, not a guy who coached here ten years ago (or whatever it was).

Lions: Nate Burleson Guarantees Win this Sunday against 8-3 Bears

Hey Nate - you guys are 2-9. You have no cause to be guaranteeing anything. Just shut up and play. You and the rest of those knuckleheads on your team. Just shut up and play. No chest thumping, no first down gestures, no end-zone celebrations, no sack dances. You guys have not earned that right. Your team has sucked for 40 years - it takes more than a single catch or a single sack for you to celebrate anything. Just give the ball back to the ref and go back to the huddle and do it all again until you win the game. Then celebrate.

I know you haven't been around for any but this year's edition of sad-sack football, and I certainly don't blame you for all that has (and hasn't) happened with this team, but please - less talk, more walk.
