Hello everyone. Never posted here before but I check out the site all the time.

I came across this video on YouTube and found it fascinating....I'm sure most of you have seen it but I'm wondering if there is some repository of more old footage like this. With the new '67 documentary coming out soon it got me thinking about what else could be pulled together.

Shameful really that it is still happening.

Lansing applies bandaids while the patient is bleeding to death. All those jobs, economy and wealth just going away from owner occupied homes. Engler, Granholm and Snyder all turned a blind eye.

The big question going into the draft is will the running game significantly improve with the addition of Rick Wagner and T.J. Lang on the O line and can Abdullah, Riddick and Zenner handle the work or does Quinn think he needs to draft a RB high? Draft defense before a back is my thought.

I would pass on a cap eating free agent QB. There is already enough money invested in that position and that's even before a new contract is offered to Stafford.

If this post brings back painful memories for anyone, I would ask that the forum moderator pull it, but I'd like to know if anyone here knew Sumas personally. I'm sure some of you did, and she was on D-Yes all the time. She and I chatted by PM, especially after Django passed away, but I never got to meet her, which is a great shame. Django always spoke very highly of her. I think she lived over towards Belle Isle and the river.

It was a nice Sunday in March, so its prime time for sure, but the count on dogs using the park this afternoon was 31 as close as I could count them. It wasn't easy, they where having a great time running around, while the people enjoyed the large social gathering.

This area is downright exploding in popularity now. Plus, with the Q-line starting to run, the heat is only going to get turned up even more. There are a lot of rehabs and new residential coming on line in the area and this 5000 square feet at best of dog park is not going to meet the needs of all the residents in the vicinity much longer.

Good problem to have. Illustrates how fast the density is increasing in Midtown.

Anyone know where on 2nd Avenue the permanent Dog Park is supposed to go and equally important, will it be large enough to handle all the new residents, both 4 and 2 legged?

This is nothing short of ridiculous that Alycia Meriweather isn't one of the finalists given that:
  • She's held the job for 1+ years already and I've yet to hear anyone say anything less than glowing about her.
  • She knows the district, its students, its parents, its teachers, its community and its politics.
  • She's a former DPS teacher and student who lives in the city. She's invested, not some academic gun for hire.
  • The students are far and away her #1 priority.

Up Goes the Northern Wall: Windsor nurses working in Detroit denied entry to US http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?22262-Up-Goes-the-Northern-Wall-Windsor-nurses-working-in-Detroit-denied-entry-to-US&goto=newpost Fri, 17 Mar 2017 17:45:06 GMT
The new normal? What will the retaliation be? Not good.

"Canadian nurses working at Michigan hospitals were shocked last week when border security officers stopped them from entering the U.S. because of changes to their working visas under new immigration policies.

Staff at Detroit's Henry Ford Hospital heard reports of nurses unable to renew their working visas. Last week, a new Canadian hire at Henry Ford tried to go to work, but was turned away at the Windsor-Detroit border.

Henry Ford Hospital alone has hundreds of Canadians on staff, with about 25 advanced practice nurses or nurse anesthetists with TN visas."
