This past Wednesday, October 22, East Lansing senior women from the class of ‘15 took on the junior women from the class of ’16 in a friendly game of Powder Puff Football. The two classes spent the past three weeks in preparation for this one night event in order to raise money for breast cancer awareness. Through the dedication of everyone involved in the process, East Lansing High School raised a total of $2,750 which will be donated to a local fundraiser, “It’s a Breast Thing.”
Our Friday feature here at ELi is called “Ask ELi to Investigate.” We take a question from a reader and assign a citizen-reporter to investigate the answer, and then we bring you the results. If you’d like to submit a question for “Ask ELi to investigate,” use our contact form.
A reader asks: Is East Lansing really $185 million in debt? How did it get so large?
ELi’s weekly Wednesday feature, “Council Capsule,” gives you a quick run-down of happenings of note at City Council the night before. Capsules include major votes, including tallies and reporting (and non-reporting) of potential conflicts-of-interest.
Roll Call: All five Council members were present: Mayor Nathan Triplett , Mayor Pro Tem Diane Goddeeris, Ruth Beier, Kathy Boyle, and Susan Woods.
Thanks to the success of our kick-off donation campaign, East Lansing Info (ELi) is thrilled to announce a redesign of our website and the introduction of weekly features!
Regular readers will still recognize the site as their favorite neighborhood resource, but will notice now there is an added column in the middle of the homepage where our feature articles appear. The left column features "latest news" not otherwise in the features feed. The right side continues to provide links to basic information about ELi.
