Detroit River Fishing

The Great Detroit Flood of 2014 resulted from the second largest downpour in Detroit history. It closed several expressways and poured into thousands of Metro Detroit basements. The 4.72 inches of rain was the highest daily recorded rainfall since July 31, 1925, when 4.74 inches of rain fell. What went wrong? Could it have been prevented?

    There used to be a few biker clubs along Fenkell between Evergreen and Telegraph. Back in the early 1970s, I used to play baseball with a guy who lived two blocks north of Fenkell, on Trinity. One time, we were walking to a corner party party store and I spotted a burned out hulk of a building. When I asked him about it, he remarked "oh, one of the rival biker clubs decided to dynamite that building". The matter of fact way he said that has stuck in my mind to this day. I forgot the names of the biker gangs on Fenkell. All I know is that I was warned that they were not the types to trifle with.

    When I was in Detroit Public Schools some of classmates were in the gang. One student I know is a member of Zone 8 and other kid was a member of Fenkell Boys.

    My sister knew some students who in the G-Monts and P-Rocks Also Known is the Grandmont St Gang and the Plymouth Rock Boys.

    My cousin told me years ago that his step-uncle tried to get him the Mack Boys Gang, but he got out it before his bio-dad about to get him.

    The Vigilantes were a big "Motorcycle Club" on the East Side. Their "colors" were a large but simple silver "V," and their clubhouse was on Gratiot near Van Dyke

    They still have a clubhouse there, at Gratiot just south of I-94.
