Sen. Lana Theis Introduces Bill to Protect Female Sports

Editorial comment: You go girl!

LANSING, Mich. — Legislation introduced by Sen. Lana Theis (pictured) on Wednesday (March 10) would require Michigan schools to only permit students of the same biological sex to compete against one another in school-sanctioned gender specific athletics.

“As a society, we fought for generations to ensure girls and women, through Title IX, have an equal opportunity to compete in athletics on a level playing field,” said Theis, R-Brighton. “Sadly, today, identity politics threatens all that was sacrificed and gained. Across our country, biological females are losing opportunities at titles, records, scholarships and, at times, participation itself.”

Restaurant Industry to Gov. Whitmer: Reopen Dine-In Service ASAP

Scott McClallen, of The Center Square, reports: “Representatives from approximately 90 bars, restaurants, and other Michigan establishments signed a letter asking Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to safely reopen dine-in service “as soon as possible” to prevent additional permanent closures.

The Facebook post announcing the letter has been shared more than 1,000 times.

‘This is not about right or left, this is about the livelihoods of everyone in the restaurant industry and the decision to extend the ban on dine-in service from today until February 1,’ the letter reads.

Many of the signatory businesses are philanthropic foundations located in communities across Michigan. According to Michigan Farm News, REO Town district restaurant co-owners Matt Gillett and Travis Stoliker have distributed over 300 meals in 14 days during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their customers  donated money for 430 additional meals for those in need.”
