Fall is finally here… or is it? These past few days of 70 degree weather sure have suggested otherwise. We here at The Michigan Daily are not exactly sure. However, here is one thing we are sure of: we were with you all week, delivering insightful, thoughtful stories about the most important happenings in and around Ann Arbor.
This week, key elected officials visited Ann Arbor to show support for reproductive health, Donald Trump made his return to Michigan, an Ann Arbor Korean restaurant featured a unique business model to combat food insecurity and more.
On Tuesday, Michigan political power players such as Debbie Dingell, Dana Nessel, and Eli Savit convened with hundreds of U-M students on the Diag to campaign for the Reproductive Freedom For All amendment. All three of the officials emphasized the importance of voting in the upcoming election to protect women against what Nessel called a potential “Handmaid’s Tale”-esque reality.
Former President Donald Trump returned to Michigan on Saturday to rally for gubernatorial hopeful Tudor Dixon. Trump dedicated much of the time at the rally to peddling conspiracy theories about voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election, and continued to affirm that he “won” that election over President Biden.
Miss Kim, a Korean restaurant on North Fifth Avenue, has recently implemented a sliding scale payment program to combat food insecurity in Ann Arbor. The restaurant will be offering its 17 most popular dishes at four different price points ranging from free to 1.5 times the regular price. Read on to learn how Miss Kim’s “Pay It Forward” program will help feed customers in need.
The University saw a slight decrease in COVID-19 positivity rates this week. Most positive cases were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic, according to the U-M COVID-19 dashboard. 182 positive cases were reported, the weekly positivity rate was down to 1.5% and occupancy of isolation housing oscillated around 10%.
