U.P. ski hill won't open this season

IRON MOUNTAIN — A ski hill in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is expected to be closed for the season.

The owners of Norway Mountain announced that the facility isn't expected to open this ski season, WLUC-TV reported. There's no immediate word on long-term plans. The owners say in a statement on the Norway Mountain website it's time for a new direction after 20 years.

The ski hill about 10 miles east of Iron Mountain drew visitors from Michigan and nearby Wisconsin.

Police stopping cars in shooting probe

WIXOM — Police searching for a man shooting at vehicles along a busy Michigan freeway corridor are pulling over cars involved in "suspicious activities."

State police Lt. Mike Shaw says vehicles parked along roadsides, coming out of wood lines on the side of freeways around Interstate 96 or doing anything else seemingly out of the norm are being stopped.

Two dozen shootings have been reported this month on and around I-96 from Oakland to Ingham counties and up M-52 into Shiawassee County. Ten incidents have been in Wixom.

Shaw says the suspect is believed to be shooting at vehicles he passes from the opposite direction.
