Activist Robert Davis to plead guilty to federal crimes

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...#ixzz3CAv07SI7

Snippets from the article:

“Robert Davis, the indicted activist accused of stealing more than $125,000 from the cash-strapped Highland Park schools, will plead guilty to two federal crimes.”

“Davis will plead guilty to converting money from the school district for his own use and filing a false tax return, court records indicate. He could face 10 years or more in federal prison.”

“But Davis wants to keep his job as a union staff representative even though the federal conversion charge prohibits someone convicted of embezzlement from working for a union. He wants U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow to rule he can keep the union job.”

Pleading guilty, probably in the hope of getting a reduced sentence as opposed to having a full trial and a full sentence. Will the frivolous lawsuits continue from jail?

The two oxen and a cart statue are restored and back in their pen and the Telway at Michigan and Martin. It's been so long since I've seen them that I can't remember if they are the same ones missing since at least 2007.

http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...bravo-ceo-says

Very happy they're keeping the HQ here in detroit, would've been heartbroken if they left somewhere else. Compuware kind of started the resurgence of downtown by building their HQ here a few years ago. Still think Gilbert will most likely buy the compuware building if he can.

quotes from the article:

"He said the company’s headquarters will remain in Detroit and there will be no layoffs. Current management will be retained, he said. "

"Paul said the sale of the company will have no effect on a possible building sale but declined to say if the building was on the market." re: campus martius HQ

I'm sure this has been linked to here before, but it's worth sharing again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=h6RlUsi_-ZA .

The narrator, the project, the music, the ambiance... it really feels like Detroit's last gasp as a major big city. Though Metro Detroit would remain important in the coming decades, you can see how this moment was Detroit's last stand, so to speak.

From Time: How [Detroit] can teach us to reinvest the rest of the U.S. economy
Quote:

In August, a year after I wrote a TIME cover story on Detroit’s bankruptcy, I visited Motown again. This time I found myself reporting on a remarkable economic resurgence that could become a model for other beleaguered American communities....

Since 2010, Gilbert has created 6,500 new jobs downtown,...

The question now is how to spread the prosperity. The answer starts with better public transportation. Motown has always been a disaster in this respect. It used to be that nobody wanted to go downtown; now nobody wants to leave. The M-1 Rail, a new public-private streetcar due to be completed in 2016, aims to link neighborhoods. GM, Penske, Quicken and other firms are contributing the majority of its $140 million cost, and the rail will be donated back to the city within a few years. Studies show that a similar project in Portland, Ore., has generated six times its cost in economic development. In the past few months, officials from New Orleans and Miami have visited Detroit to study the project....
Heh, Detroit as a role model. There we have it. :)

Sale of Old Wayne County Bldg a done deal http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19000-Sale-of-Old-Wayne-County-Bldg-a-done-deal&goto=newpost Sun, 31 Aug 2014 19:14:29 GMT
http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...ing-lot-closes

I know there's an old thread, but had trouble finding it.

So, I'm having trouble wrapping my head around who could fit the bill for "single-tenant occupancy." The article states that $15M in renovations will begin immediately - which is AWESOME - which includes tenant build-out.

This seems to indicate that they have a tenant lined up already. An investor wouldn't spend the $ to do build-out for a single tenant unless there had been some formal commitment.

Thoughts/rumors?? Any idea who could be moving in here?

Does Detroit has a Little League Baseball Team? http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?18998-Does-Detroit-has-a-Little-League-Baseball-Team&goto=newpost Sun, 31 Aug 2014 02:41:39 GMT
The Popularity of the internationally televised Little League World Series has wooed the audience where boys and few girls ( Like Mo'ne Davis) pitch fastballs and slugging their bats at Williamsport, PA. I was wondering does Detroit has a Little League Baseball team? If it does can that team have a chance to go the Little League World Series? Surely Chicago has a Little League Baseball Team called Jackie Robinson West. An all Black team made it the LLWS Championship against South Korea, but lost.

I'm also wondering did some of the you forum members played in the Little League long ago or been to Williamsport. The last team in the Metro-Detroit Area the won the LLWS Championship was Pony League in Hamtramck in 1959.

We need teams from Michigan back to Williamsport, PA. Hopefully next year.

Any thoughts?

Walking around the jazz fest and along jefferson last night, it was really bad to see streetlights out all over. Thousands of people walking along Jefferson, in the dark.
very dangerous and a really bad sign to visitors, not only for the jazz fest but also the huge Islamic convention. I see once again our lights along Lafayette East are out again also. What gives? Anyone have a idea or who can be queried quickly.
Surely we can do better than this now.
Thanks
