On this day: for the football fans out there, many of you remember major events that happen in college or NFL history, particularly if they have anything to do with your favorite Michigan college teams. On this day in 2013, Eric Fisher from Central Michigan was the first pick by the Kansas City Chiefs. The mitten state proudly said goodye to Fisher as he became the first player from Central Michigan to be picked first overall.
If you're not into football, you might be into Etsy, and if you are there's a class called Start Your Creative Business with Etsy at the Small Business Development Center at LCC at 309 N. Washington Sq. Suite 110 in Lansing. Call (517)-483-1921 for more information.
