I noticed this sign when I was walking yesterday by the Masonic Temple. Does anyone know if there is an actual plan to renovate these or if the sign means something else?

I'm curious what the origin of "Sugar Hill" is for a relativity flat neighborhood. The same can be said for Murray Hill. Is this a scenario where these were elevated parts of the city, or hilly areas, but then flattened for fill dirt, as the city filled in the low lying areas on the east side?

Bernie Sanders: Democrats Need to Wake Up
From article:

Surprise, surprise. Workers in Britain, many of whom have seen a decline in their standard of living while the very rich in their country have become much richer, have turned their backs on the European Union and a globalized economy that is failing them and their children.

And it’s not just the British who are suffering. That increasingly globalized economy, established and maintained by the world’s economic elite, is failing people everywhere...

For Detroitís Children, More School Choice but Not Better Schools
June 28, 2016

Ana Rivera could have had almost any choice when it came to educating her two sons. For all the abandoned buildings and burned-down houses in her neighborhood in the southwest part of this city, national charter school companies had seen a market and were setting up shop within blocks of each other, making it easier to find a charter school than to buy a carton of milk.

But hers became the story of public education in a city grasping for its comeback: lots of choice, with no good choice.

DDOT to pay $850,000 in 2016-2017 to fix Rosa Parks Transit Center http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?21608-DDOT-to-pay-850-000-in-2016-2017-to-fix-Rosa-Parks-Transit-Center&goto=newpost Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:56:09 GMT
This after last year's installation of "snow guards" on the roof.

When this thing went up, some of us had some quibbles with this design, particularly the canopy. Luckily, some people who knew better corrected us, assuring us that our concerns were groundless. Sure, the canopy was shredded a day or so after it went up, but it was fixed in a jiffy. It was all covered in a mammoth Hall of Fame thread. One expert in particular cried: "After all, would you rather wait for a bus in a dark, noisy, smelly, polluted garage or a light, open, breezy plaza?"

Another poster had predicted: "In order to keep the place looking decent the city will have to spring for maintenance ... Given the city's track record with such things I'm not betting on that happening, so some years from now we will have another shabby embarrassing eyesore on our hands."

Well, it turns out the transit center is due for a spit shine. The rehab is billed as simple maintenance of a heavily used facility. They're only fixing the broken ticket machines, the "heavily-worn floors and ramshackle bathroom stalls covered in graffiti." Oh, and the "message boards displaying inaccurate bus route info." And they're replacing the lighting. Oh, and they're planning to "fix the exterior concrete and to upgrade the transit center's generator and electrical system."

You know ... just simple maintenance.

Should help Grand River, which needs help in that area.

It would be really nice if someone would (could) do something with the blocks on the other side of the street, i.e., the couple blocks along Grand River which intersect with W. Elizabeth and Cass.

It appears the final song in the Kwame Kilpatrick saga has been sung. His appeal has been rejected by the Supreme Court meaning the lower court convictions will remain in place.

He has been such a big part of the Detroit media discussion for so long it's going to seem a bit strange not to hear about him.
