On April 24th, comedian and “Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me…” panelist Paula Poundstone will bring her unique brand of stand-up comedy to Kalamazoo’s State Theatre. Despite more than 30 years in the business, Poundstone still tours as much as just about any comedian out there. Poundstone says her live show is vastly different from her "Wait, Wait..." appearances -- it's more personal, she says, and nearly a quarter of the show is just Poundstone interacting with the audience.

The man accused in a series of seemingly random shootings across Kalamazoo in February is mentally fit to stand trial. A district court judge ruled today that Jason Brian Dalton understands the crimes against him and can assist his defense.

Dalton allegedly killed six people and injured two others as he drove across Kalamazoo County on February 20th.

On April 22nd, a new, ambitious event will officially launch in Kalamazoo: The Music Hop. The event is billed as similar to the city's Art Hop, but with musicians instead of artists. The event’s organizers say that one night every month, local musicians will perform in restaurants, museums and venues across the city, from the Old Peninsula to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.

Back in the 1940s, when men headed off to fight in World War II, Chicago Cubs owner Philip Wrigley created something totally new: The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Teams stretched across the Midwest, from Racine, Wis., to Kalamazoo. At its peak, the league brought in almost one million fans per year. It also inspired the 1992 movie, “A League of Their Own”, best-known for the now-famous line, "There's no crying in baseball!"
