Michigan Attorney General Schuette shares lessons in book

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is sharing lessons he has learned throughout his career and personal life in a new book.

“Big Lessons from a Small Town” focuses on his hometown of Midland and people who have influenced his life, including football coaches, politicians and family. The Detroit Free Press reports that the Republican says he “learned a lot about leadership and service and I wanted to share that.”

Some of those lessons include hand writing your own thank you notes, not giving up after defeats, making your own phone calls and taking more time for family. Schuette links those lessons to moments in his life, including political ones such as winning a congressional seat to a failed run for U.S. Senate.


Law firm dedicates portion of October billings to National Breast Cancer Foundation

 Intellectual property and technology law firm Brooks Kushman will participate in the fight against breast cancer by contributing a percentage of all professional billings in October to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Additionally, to help raise awareness among the legal community of the breast cancer health crisis and promote support of NBCF, Brooks Kushman will be using pink versions of its logo on its website and in other applications throughout the month to provide a visual reminder of the need for broad support of breast cancer detection, treatment, support and research initiatives.

“We all have people in our lives who have fought the battle against breast cancer; whether it’s spouses, family members, friends, coworkers or others,” said Mark Cantor, president of Brooks Kushman. “With one in eight women in America being diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives, this is a personal cause for all of us and it’s one we are proud to take on together as a firm.”
