 U of M student’s get a new twist on an old favorite with Neo-Papalis, which recently opened at 500 E. Williams St., next door to the original Cottage Inn.

 A marijuana growth facility has been proposed to the city’s planning commission. Daryl Mynes, co-owner of People’s Choice Alternative Medicine, applied to open at 834 Railroad St. If approved, it would be the second in town; Green Vitality Remedies is already open at 576 S. Mansfield, which was approved in July.
