Gregg Krupa The Detroit News Published 7:49 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 Detroit — It is a trend the Red Wings are happy to buck. While fighting continues long trend of decline in the NHL, the Wings believe occasional fisticuffs unite a roster in transition and makes it tougher to play. In a previous era, when bigger, slower players were allowed by rules and their enforcement to clutch and grab, brute force established space. Now, comparatively smaller, fleet-of-foot players dash around open ice, deploying their skills. Increasingly, in recent years, teams seek pace, not muscle. And, so it is that players like Tie Domi, Dave “Tiger” Williams, Chris Nilan, Bob Probert, Joe Kocur and Craig Berube, all so-called enforcers of yesteryear, find little room on NHL rosters. “It’s been an interesting kind of evolution to follow,” said Stu Grimson, who played in 729 games, including 68 for the Red Wings from 1994-97, fought over 300 times and had a robust … [Read more...] about Fighting gives Red Wings a boost, bucking league-wide trend

Tom Krisher AP Auto Writer Published 5:07 PM EST Nov 13, 2018 Detroit – The Trump administration’s Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to rewrite rules that limit pollution from heavy trucks but that the EPA says slow the economy. Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler argues that new technology can help improve air quality, noting that the regulation of harmful nitrogen oxide emissions hasn’t been revamped since 2000. EPA officials were to announce the plans Tuesday but offered few details and said they were just beginning a regulatory process that can take years. “We are doing it because it’s good for the environment,” said Wheeler, who notes that the EPA is under no requirement to redo the regulation. “Our goal is to update our standards so that we can get these new technologies in use across the country.” The proposed “Cleaner Trucks Initiative” is drawing expressions of hope but skepticism from some … [Read more...] about EPA seeks new truck pollution rules
Paul Egan Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Nov 11, 2018 LANSING — Michigan's new governor and attorney general are expected to try to undo state agreements with Enbridge to build a Line 5 oil pipeline tunnel, even if the current administration, as expected, pushes through the agreements before the end of the year. Growing fears of a catastrophic oil spill in the Straits of Mackinac have resulted in widespread calls to shut down the 65-year-old Enbridge pipeline moving oil through the environmentally sensitive straits separating Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who leaves office Dec. 31, struck a tunnel agreement in October with the Canadian oil transport giant. Under the plan, the company would pay to build a $350-million tunnel beneath the straits that would encase a replacement pipeline to prevent a spill and allow the existing line to be decommissioned. Snyder wants the tunnel overseen and owned by the … [Read more...] about Whitmer and Nessel expected to fight Line 5 tunnel agreement
