News Photo by Julie Riddle A Michigan State Police trooper on the scene where a Jeep left M-32 west of Lachine Tuesday morning in a two-vehicle collision that caused no injuries. The driver of the Jeep — a medical supply representative on his way to Traverse City — clipped a compact sedan as he was trying to merge back into traffic after passing a truck as all three vehicles traveled west. The Jeep careened off the road and into a ditch, taking one post of a two-legged sign with it. The front driver’s side of the Jeep and rear passenger side of the sedan sustained significant damage, but both drivers were checked by medical personnel and released.

News Photo by Julie Riddle Firefighters from the Alpena Fire Department put away hoses after a fire drill at the Pinecrest Manor Apartments in Alpena on Thursday. The drill was one of seven to be conducted by Nov. 2 at area living complexes considered to be high-hazard buildings because of interior hallways. Many of the residents couldn’t hear the alarm through their doors during Thursday’s practice-run, alarms didn’t go off throughout the complex simultaneously, and some information on a map of the building was upside-down -- all reasons that fire drills are necessary and could save lives, said Capt. Andy Marceau, community risk reduction officer for the Alpena Fire Department.
