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. The 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.

I represent a non profit that benefits local organizations in need. We host a three day art festival where we showcase and demonstrate glass blowing. Last year we donated 80k to Art Road Non profit. They bring elementary art programming to local public schools.

We are tenants at the Russell Industrial center and host the event in the Exhibition center. Due to the recent condemning of the building, our future is uncertain and we lack a location. We are in search of a large industrial warehouse space to rent that is 35k sq ft or larger with adequate parking and electrical. Any leads would be helpful. Please check us out at www.themichiganglassproject.com for information and contact me via email at urbanpheasant@gmail.com.

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 just read both News and Freep stories about Farrakhan's speech this weekend. Somehow, both papers managed to omit his incredibly racist opening remarks, in which he rails against white people, who he says were "unfortunately" created 6000 years ago.

The media is giving ammunition to their critics by downplaying this kind of thing. They're not always bad, but in cases like this, they do seem to skew things. And now is the time when the media needs to call out bigotry wherever they see it. No matter who is doing it.

Here's Farrakhan's shocking opening remarks, which somehow was deemed not newsworthy:

“Unfortunately, 6000 years ago, a new people came onto our planet by Allah’s permission, and they were given power and dominion over … every creeping thing that crawls upon the earth. But because they would be mischief makers, and cause the shedding of blood, the angels themselves were a little disturbed with Allah, and questioned him according to the Holy Koran, and asked him: “You’re going to place a ruler in the earth? What kind of ruler will he be, except that which creates mischief and causes the shedding of blood?” But Allah said to the angels, “I know what you know not,” and so the world of the Caucasian came into being. For 6000 years the people of the earth have suffered under a mischief-making rule. Bloodshed and war, hatred and strife, all because a man with a new color, or the lack thereof, thought that he was better than all of those who inhabited the earth before he was even a thought. But I’m here to announce today the end of his world, and the beginning of a brand new reality.”

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.

One of the better regarded restaurants that have sprouted up along the Michigan Avenue's restaurant row [and recently lauded as Best New Restaurant #1: Katoi, Detroit] was destroyed last night by a burglary/arson fire.

Quote:

A fire that "pretty well gutted" Katoi restaurant this morning in Detroit appears to have been started by burglars stealing liquor, a top fire official said.

Nobody was injured in the fire reported at about 6:15 a.m., at Michigan Avenue and 17th. Arson investigators remain on the scene, and a tote bag of liquor was found by the back door.

"It appears the fire was set to cover the break-in," Deputy Detroit Fire Commissioner David Fornell said.
