Grand Jury to Probe Detroit Councilman Gabe Leland https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23473-Grand-Jury-to-Probe-Detroit-Councilman-Gabe-Leland&goto=newpost Fri, 17 Aug 2018 14:13:45 GMT
Innocent until proved guilty, yes, but it has been a while since we have had any Clowncil hijinks...
"A federal grand jury has been impaneled to investigate claims that Detroit City Councilman Gabe Leland allegedly extorted thousands of dollars in free alcohol, food and other items in exchange for political promises from a shuttered downtown bar, according to a subpoena obtained by the Free Press.

"The subpoena was issued Aug. 8 by Assistant U.S. Attorney R. Michael Bullotta and sought all documentation related to Leland possibly obtaining:

  • Free entry into parties or events
  • Free alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks
  • Free food, including entrees, appetizers and desserts
  • Any other items of value provided free of charge or at a discounted price

"The probe is the latest twist in a lengthy legal battle that began in November 2016 when the co-owners of the former Centre Park Bar, 1407 Randolph, first filed a lawsuit against Mayor Mike Duggan and other city officials. Leland has not been charged with any crime.

"The original suit, which is still winding through the court system, claimed police harassment and alleged Dennis Archer Jr., former Mayor Dennis Archer's son, received favorable treatment while buying the building the bar occupied. "

Can anyone tell me what the marker or monument is in the center of the I-75/I375/Gratiot interchange near Ford Field pictured below? I have driven by it a thousand times and never known what it was. It appears that there is a marker on it so I dont believe it is just remnants of an old light pole or something like that.

Google is good for almost everything, but I could not find any information about this one.

Good Day fellow members
I do estate sales and at an upcoming one we have a large freize by Matt Blake. Other then the articles in Metro Times from back in 2008, I'm looking for any additional information regarding the art he created over the years. I've reached out to CCS and have not heard back yet from them. The estate collected a lot of different types of art over the years and was a real supporter of the city. Thanks in advance!

Court ordered evictions https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23461-Court-ordered-evictions&goto=newpost Tue, 14 Aug 2018 09:46:59 GMT
Steven Henderson hosts a wonderful radio show.
On that show he mentioned WARREN has the
highest number of court evictions in the state.

I'm guessing that people who wanted to move out of Detroit
simply cannot based on the jobs, income, rent, etc.
Moving up past 8 Mile involves paying bills on time.

Once evicted, by court order, it follows them around
in future housing decisions for a long time

SAD UPDATE: The Queen of Soul has passed

A publicist for Aretha Franklin says the Queen of Soul died Thursday at her home in Detroit.

Franklin, 76, was hospice care in her Detroit home, sources have told multiple media outlets.

People prayed before dawn Wednesday at a vigil at New Bethel Baptist Church, the Detroit church once led by the singer's late father, the nationally renowned pastor and civil rights activist the Rev. C.L. Franklin.

http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...lin-dies-at-76

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
Thoughts and prayers for the Queen of Soul and Detroit legend Aretha Franklin.

"This follows an earlier report from Roger Friedman's Showbiz 411:

"The Queen of Soul, who turned 76 in March, is surrounded by "family and people close to her" in Detroit.

"In March, Franklin canceled two concerts scheduled in New Jersey.

"Franklin's most recent performance was Nov. 2, 2017 at the Elton John AIDS Foundation in New York and her final public performance was at Philadelphia’s Mann Center in August 2017."

One of my favorites, Aretha at 14 in her father's church.

A minor political shockwave from Tuesday was the upset win of political unknown Betty Jean Alexander who upset incumbent State Sen. David Knezek, get this, without a website, Facebook campaign page or any signs and has everybody scratching their heads. What happened?

It wasn't eve close. She won by 9 points. For those of you who don't know the gerrymandered Michigan 5th Senate District [I didn't] here it is in yellow. If I were still a Political Science Grad student, I would be diving into this mystery with both feet to figure out how things like this happen.

A second State Senate upset occurred in Warren, although the winning candidate was known and ran a traditional campaign.

"The loss wasn't the only surprise in Tuesday's election. State Rep. Patrick Green, a Warren Democrat, was expected to be a shoo-in for re-election, but Lori Stone, a Warren Democrat and teacher, upended the incumbent by a 4,585 to 4,110 margin. She only raised $2,650 for the race, compared with Green, who raised more than $48,000 this election cycle and ended the campaign with $21,654 in his campaign bank. It was a rematch of the 2016 race, when Green got 50 percent of the vote to 30 percent for Stone with two other Democrats splitting the remainder.
