1. A new cookie company in West Michigan has appeared in Jenison called Championchip Cookies.

Owner Dan Morgan makes 13 varieties of cookies and they're available for pick up and delivery seven days a week.

The future looks bright for Championchip Cookies because Dan is expanding his home kitchen by adding more commercial-grade equipment in order to make even more cookies.

Place an order on their Facebook page or go to championchipcookies.com.

2. Anxious athletes and parents, listen up! Spring sports have been pushed back a week.

The Michigan High School Athletic Association says it should help alleviate the pressures on indoor facility usage and athletes since winter sports are wrapping up later this year because of COVID.

Coaches and MHSAA members were consulted about the move. This means practices for baseball, softball, track and field, girls soccer, boys golf, and lacrosse start March 22nd with tournaments starting on the 26th.

3. Soon it will be even easier to renew or replace your driver's license. The Michigan Secretary of STate's office will soon add more than 130 self-service stations across the state along with new options on the website.

The upgrades will let you renew or replace your enhanced driver's license, or state ID card, request a temporary license, add a motorcycle endorsement, or obtain driving records, and more.

The changes have been planned for two years and will be available starting March 16.

Some services are shutting down one week before while the new system is brought online.

4. A Detroit 5-year-old is taking over the Internet all because of her educational Black History Month videos.

5-year-old Rosie dresses up as notable black women. Mom writes a script, and then she puts out a video with some important fun facts about the women.

Rosie has made videos on Stacey Abrams, Tina Turner, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Her videos have gained so much attention that even Tina Turner posted a message on social media about them.

5. Space buffs are enjoying new images from Mars sent by NASA's Perseverance Rover.

The photo shows the Rover right after touchdown. After landing, the Rover took images of the Martian surface with its front and rear cameras. One image shows the Rover's wheels in the dirt.

Perseverance is able to capture images in color, which is a first for Mars missions.

The Rover landed last Thursday, and its main goal is to look for signs of ancient microscopic life on Mars.
