Tim Reinman vows he won't be at the Detroit Tigers home opener on Friday at Comerica Park.
Flights at community events and the 2013 Thunderbirds' season have been canceled, according to the U.S. Air Force.

But we want to know what defined 2012 for you. Was it a moment in Michigan politics, such as when Gov. Rick Snyder signed right-to-work legislation? Was it a moment of triumph, such as the Detroit Tigers trip to the World Series? Or was it something else? How will you …
