Good morning!

Fun Facts: Prior to changing their status from village to city in 2009, Caro had been the largest village in Michigan. The painted turtle was chosen as the state reptile of Michigan in 1995, after a group of fifth graders from Niles discovered Michigan did not have a state reptile.

Good morning Saginaw County!

Fun Fact: In 1903, Horatio Nelson Jackson disagreed with fellow bar patrons that the automobile was not capable of handling a cross country trip. He was so confident he accepted a wager of $50 and four days later he embarked on what has became the first documented person to drive an automobile from San Francisco to New York using only a connection of dirt roads, cow paths, and railroad beds. His journey, covered by the press, became a national sensation and called for a system of long-distance roads.

Good morning Saginaw County!

Fun Fact: The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, which was signed by President Dwight Eisenhower, created a 41,000-mile “National System of Interstate and Defense Highways” that would eliminate unsafe roads, inefficient routes, traffic jams and everything else that would prevent adequate, safe transcontinental travel. The bill declared that the construction of an elaborate expressway system was “essential to the national interest.”
