The amount of people on the internet has been increasing steadily throughout the last century and with the new, constant exposure to social media and instant messaging systems; problems like Cyberbullying and Sexting are at an all-time high among teens. With this increase and a recent case right in the Davison community, Michigan State Police came to host seminars regarding the dangers of these actions on the web.
DTV’s Rebekah Allen followed the story and produced a two-part series called Internet Issues with the first installment tackling Cyberbullying and the second piece informed students on the dangers of sexting. The series aired on Monday, March 26th and the following day on the 27th during the DTV daily newscast. You can head on over to our YouTube page DTV News or click the link below to educate yourself on the dangers. Remember to think before you send!

Vice President Mike Pence made a two day stop in Michigan to rally support for the new Tax reform. He spoke to the workers at the American Axial and Manufacturing company about what this new bill would do if passed. Some of the main points are that it would simplify the tax code by reducing the 7 tax brackets to 3 and make filing easier. Also, this bill would eliminate the estate tax and eliminates some tax deductions. But if a big tax brake like this one passes a big question is where will the money come from? That is a question that has yet to be answered. One thing is for sure that to pass this bill both sides will have to work together.
