Oct 6, 2015

NMU music professors Mark Flaherty and Barbara Rhyneer stop in to Public Radio 90 to preview these three nearly back-to-back concerts, starting with a choral extravaganza Sunday (Oct 11) afternoon at 3, followed by a jazz ensembles concert Tuesday (Oct 13) night at 7:30, and an orchestra concert Wednesday (Oct 14) night, also at 7:30. All shows are free to the public and take place in Reynolds Recital Hall at NMU.

MARQUETTE, MI--   About $9 million in overpaid pension payments has been returned to Northern Michigan University. 

NMU is one of seven universities in the state to get a refund from the Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System.  Northern Vice-President for Finance and Administration Gavin Leach says since 1997 some payments made each year were not reported to the actuary, creating an overpayment. 

Michigan universities no longer participate in MPSERS, but must fund the pensions of participating employees.
