A new report on substance abuse in Kalamazoo County has mixed news. It says that fewer teens are using alcohol, marijuana, and regular tobacco products.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer stopped in Kalamazoo Thursday afternoon. After a tour of Kalamazoo Valley Community College's culinary program, Whitmer said Michigan can do more to put students on a path to high-paying careers. The governor says she wants 60-percent of Michigan students to finish college or a job trainging program by 2030. Whitmer also says she wants to offer every graduating high school senior a debt-free community college degree, an affordable four-year degree, or training in the skilled trades.
