U.S. home construction fell in February by the most in eight months on a drop in single-family home starts, suggesting buyers and builders remain wary despite higher wages and a drop in mortgage rates. Residential starts slumped 8.7 percent to a 1.16 million annualized rate, below estimates, after an upwardly revised gain in January, according to government figures Tuesday. Permits, a proxy for future construction, dropped 1.6 percent to a 1.3 million rate. The steeper-than-expected drop and other signs of weakness signals developers continue to struggle to build inexpensive properties as costs rise for materials and labor. Even so, sales have started to bounce back from last year's slump as mortgage rates dip lower and wage gains pick up.

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:34 AM EST Dec 14, 2018 Michigan State wrapped up final exams Friday across campus. The last test this season for the Spartans’ football team is a bit more than two weeks away, against Oregon at the Redbox Bowl on Dec. 31 in Santa Clara, Calif. But Mark Dantonio and his staff also get a sneak peek at the future Wednesday when the second college football three-day early signing period arrives. Tom Izzo and his basketball team, in the meantime, are off until Sunday, then only have two more games until the new year. Scheduling quirks – with the Big Ten going to a 20-game conference slate, MSU having to play in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and also going to the Las Vegas Invitational, as well playing the one-year-delayed game at Florida – left December relatively open for the ninth-ranked Spartans.
