Bridge Magazine is a year old today. Can it just be a year ago that we were "discussing" the best name for a new online news and analysis magazine focused on Michigan’s pressing problems … Beacon, 42 North, Bridge?
To celebrate the first of what we are planning to be many years covering Michigan events, we’d like to share with you some of the top "hits" from the past year. Ranging from coverage of Michigan’s college cost dilemma to the challenges confronting families on public assistance to the first cohort of Academic State Champions, the pieces below are some of the best of our best.
Take a gander and, if you can take a moment, please share one or two, or all, of them with a family member, friend or neighbor who may not know about us just yet. We think they will find Bridge as informative and stimulating as you have.
