I know two people who don't have or want mobile phones. I wonder what they would do in an emergency while out - or if they just needed a ride or had a flat tire or something. It reminds me that I have no idea where a public payphone might be in Downtown Detroit.

Are there any?

Don't be surprised to see Cristni walking around somewhere with a smile on his face and some new clothes, but either way Palazuelo has him out of the way. Cleanup crews are expected to arrive by next month starting with the restoration of the bridge that crosses Grand Boulevard.


http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...-packard-plant

Not related but other good news is that a commercial rental furniture company moved into the far end of the Packard Plant that's adjacent to I-94. That section is separate from the part of the plant that Palazuelo owns. An interesting point mentioned in the Crain article is that quality industrial space is actually very hard to find within the city. The company was previously going to move to a space in Corktown (where their original office is), but got outbidded. If Palazuelo can really get Packard cleaned up, chances are it might not be so hard to get a decant amount of tenants.

Pay cuts, school closures, steeper student losses on way, DPS plan shows http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?18940-Pay-cuts-school-closures-steeper-student-losses-on-way-DPS-plan-shows&goto=newpost Wed, 20 Aug 2014 03:12:36 GMT
The 2014-15 school year could bring an additional [the first 10% occurring in 2011] 10% wage reduction for DPS employees. And while no schools will close this year, 24 schools will be shuttered beginning in 2015-16.

Among the challenges DPS officials face: The budget they crafted earlier this year included $14.8 million in expected revenues from a county-wide school millage that voters turned down Aug. 5. District spokeswoman Michelle Zdrodowski said in an e-mail that the newplan offers the most conservative projections and estimates available.

Pizza Bowl is no more http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?18939-Pizza-Bowl-is-no-more&goto=newpost Tue, 19 Aug 2014 23:04:54 GMT
Crain's is reporting that the long-running day-after-Christmas Pizza Bowl has been cancelled. It seems to have been bumped out by a new bowl series backed by the Detroit Lions.

"The game, traditionally played the day after Christmas and aired live on ESPN, began as the Motor City Bowl in 1997 and moved to 64,500-seat Ford Field in 2002 from the 80,311-seat Pontiac Silverdome.

The fate of the Pizza Bowl has been in doubt since the Detroit Lions announced in 2013 that they’ll host a new bowl matching Big Ten and Atlantic Coast Conference teams at Ford Field in a six-year deal that begins this year.

“If you look at any city right now, there are very, very few that can support two major bowl games,” Lions President Tom Lewand said in July 2013, adding that the Lions would be putting all of their support behind the yet-to-be-named Big Ten/ACC bowl.

The Lions-backed college game is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Dec. 26, according to the NCAA’s official 2014 bowl lineup. That had been the Pizza Bowl’s spot in the bowl schedule in the past.

Hoffman told Crain’s last year that he’d been in talks with Little Caesars’ co-founder Mike Ilitch to possibly relocate the Pizza Bowl across the street to 45,000-seat Comerica Park. That idea has not gone anywhere."

He also fired the current head of the department.

It was stated it had nothing to do with last week's flooding crisis response, but it sure seems to be fitting a pattern with Orr.

Although considering how the state flinched I'm not sure it's fair to blame this one guy.

An interesting piece appeared on the Urbanophile this week about the different forms of gentrification in different American cities, and why we should not judge each form the same. Detroit does very much seem to fit the typology proposed here, but I wonder what other localized factors we might think about when applying this line of thinking to our community.

Three years into the Venture for America (VFA) program that puts top-flight college grads to work for two years at start-up companies, Detroit is the city where VFA recruits are creating the most buzz.
That’s both surprising — given Detroit’s stigma as a rust-belt economic laggard — and yet entirely in keeping with VFA’s lofty mission: to remake the U.S. economy through entrepreneurship, revitalize America’s cities and create 100,000 jobs by 2025.
Inspired by Teach for America, the VFA program founded by Andrew Yang targets some the nation’s lowest-income cities by sending in aspiring young entrepreneurs, not schoolteachers.
From the beginning, Yang saw that Detroit had a unique place in that mission.
“It’s one of our more popular cities to go to because people think they’ll have a great opportunity to have an impact,” he told me.

The numbers tell the story.
This month, the VFA class of 2014 — 106 recipients of two-year fellowships upon leaving college — are fanning out to work at start-up companies in 12 U.S. cities, after a group orientation and training period in Providence, R.I.
Fifteen of them are landing in Detroit, the destination of more VFA fellows than anyplace else in each of the program’s first two years. Twelve of 40 VFA fellows came to Detroit in 2012, and 16 of 69 the following year.
Not only has Detroit hosted more VFA participants than other cities, but several of the Detroit-based fellows have already made waves by starting new ventures, attracting funding and national attention.

Some examples:

Five men suspected of tagging structures across the city with graffiti signatures were arraigned Monday on charges of malicious destruction of property after being chased from a defaced building and arrested last week.


Sgt. Rebecca McKay of the city's anti-graffiti task force said the men are believed be part of a group known as the TCK Crew, whose signatures can be be seen on buildings, highway structures and houses around Detroit.


Among the names they're known for marking are Fon, Scab, Ridle and Fox, "those you will find up and down thoroughfares across the city," McKay said.
Two of the suspects live in Detroit, said Police Chief James Craig, while the others are from Romulus, Southgate and Lincoln Park.
