Airing on Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015: First up, more on a new pile of money from the west for Ukraine as that cease fire is announced. And when you think of the luxury car company Mercedes Benz, how could you not think "New Jersey"? That's where its U.S. operations has been headquartered: Montvale, New Jersey. But like many a car company, Mercedes is moving South. We travel to Atlanta to look at what's fueling the trend. Plus, a developer has reached out to Detroit residents to raise money and crowd fund the development of the Old Tiger Stadium in Detroit. We're at the plate with the story.
