Snow Days Way Back When? http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?22217-Snow-Days-Way-Back-When&goto=newpost Wed, 22 Feb 2017 23:35:11 GMT
I see a lot of discussion on other sites and in the news about schools being closed for snow. Made me start thinking back and I can't remember. Did Detroit schools routinely close for snow back in the 60s? This was before widespread bussing and remember walking to school in snow.

Black History Month and Michigan Historic Sites and Markers in Detroit http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?22216-Black-History-Month-and-Michigan-Historic-Sites-and-Markers-in-Detroit&goto=newpost Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:08:51 GMT
I believe there are 27 sites involving the city's racial history that have been recognized as official Miigan Historic sites, many with those green historical markers. There are at least three additional commemoration that might be considered.

Rosa Park - She lived in Detroit for 39 years and continued her active role here.

Zachariah Chandler - He was, arguably, the city's most prominent abolitionist and, while in the Senate and as Secretary of the Interior, strongly defended the rights of the Freedmen and Native Americans.

Ralph Bunche - This Detroit native was the first African-American to win the Noble peace prize.

If any one wishes a list of the 27 sites, send an e-mail to 1701Motown@gmail.com

Sometimes it seems like Detroit won the lotto when Mayor Duggan stepped forward to lead this city. He is without doubt a problem solver of high order with political skills unmatched in this state demonstrated repeatedly with his ability to reach out to the business community, his own party and republicans in Lansing to bring everyone together and achieve goals moving the city forward as fast as possible.

If anyone missed his state of the city speech it is well worth the watch.

Our Rotary club recently had a presentation by Chris Lambert, founder and CEO of Life Remodeled. This organization finds an residential area in the city that needs upgrading and improvements, involves the residents in developing a project and spends a year or more doing good things. They did a huge project around the Denby high area last year and are planning a major effort around Central High this year. They need volunteers (no skills required). Here is a link to the project--

The next seven years will likely be an upswing for the City of Detroit and its citizens. At least, I hope so; fervently.

But come the year 2024, the City will be required to make a baloon payment to the Pension Funds. The current estimate is between $137 to $350 million dollars. The City will not have anything close to that, and Bankruptcy II shall result. (Estimates provided by Mark Young, President of the Detroit Police Lieutenants and Sergeants Ass'n.).

The City will likely ask the State legislature, a rather disorganized bunch of Yahoos, to rescue them, and they will do all they can, other than to provide cash. Legislation will be brought forth to eliminate pensions, make a token lump sum payout, and forbid health care compensation for active and retired employees.

All in all, it's a doom and gloom scenario. Fortunately, in 2024, I'll be 88 and either in a hospice or a grave, so it probably won't make any matter to me. Other than to cry over what a dynamic, prosperous City Detroit once was.

Just venting. Take your shots.

The article says more details are coming at Wednesday's DDA meeting. I actually doubt the plan will be too specific, and also think it will not include renderings. Gilbert is still waiting for the state to pass the "brownfield & blighted" legislation. I suppose it is possible that he could release info/renderings for 2 different plans, one with the tax incentives and one without. But I think the legislation in question is shortly to pass the legislature, so I think he will continue to cool his jets until then.

Just my opinion, but I think they have plans 100% done and would be ready to go, but they want that bill to pass before putting a shovel in the ground.

I'm starting a new transit map project (trying to improve on some of the existing bus maps in the region) and now humbly look to all the local experts on this forum for some advice. I'm wondering what you think might be good labels for the following intersections or general parts of the city. Could be a neighborhood name, or could reference something important nearby like a park or historical site. Any thoughts?

Pretty much anything along Gratiot...
- Gratiot & Mack/Warren/Van Dyke (probably won't label more than one or two of these intersections)
- Gratiot & Conner
- Gratiot & 7 Mile
- Gratiot & 8 Mile

- Greenfield & Grand River
- Greenfield & 7 Mile

My friend, Jim Myers, was born right here in Detroit and went to HS in Mad-Heights. They named the field after him a few years ago. He used to say that the grapplers in his day were much tougher than today's wrestlers because of the travel schedule. No jets flying people everywhere. It was a constant road trip in whatever car you could find. Such a nice man.
