Are the hipsters downtown being left out of the equation, or given proper credit, when it comes to a prognosis on Detroit's future renewal?

I'm talking about the urban dwellers who move into downtown (and not just for one day at the ballpark, concert or wherever) and who are not interested in living in the 'burbs, only in the city proper.

Anyone else having trouble picking up CW50 today? https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23634-Anyone-else-having-trouble-picking-up-CW50-today&goto=newpost Tue, 20 Nov 2018 00:14:24 GMT
Seems like it's completely off the air; signal strength is only 22% on their last known frequency (UHF 14). I thought maybe they'd just changed frequencies so I rescanned, and although I picked up some new stations that are barely watchable I couldn't find CW50 at all. Kinda sucks because we watch a LOT of stuff on that station!

How many feel that the Avenue of Fashion is still not meeting it's great potential as being a major walkable shopping destination such as Ferndale, Royal Oak, Grosse Pointe, and Birmingham? The Ave is bordered by two to three middle class communities such as Sherwood Forest, Palmer Woods, and Green Acres but the many of the stores on the strip don't attract those in the surrounding communities but cater to those from elsewhere? I know that there is one or two developers who are trying to put something on the strip but I feel that there need to be more

Trump Embraces a Path to Revise U.S. Sentencing and Prison Laws

From article:

Mr. Trump’s support could give political cover to Republicans wary of reducing some hard-line sentencing rules for drug and other offenses, and enable the legislation’s sponsors to assemble a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats in time to move a bill before the year’s end — and before the new, divided Congress is seated.

The changes have attracted a broad and unusual range of supporters, including the billionaire brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch on the right and the American Civil Liberties Union on the left. Conservatives see an opportunity to begin to cut into the high costs of the nation’s growing prison population. Liberals have long opposed the current sentencing laws for what they see as having unfairly incarcerated a generation of young men, particularly African-American men, for drug and other nonviolent offenses.

Carnack Hires Detectives to Tail Duggan--Claims Extramarital affair https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23628-Carnack-Hires-Detectives-to-Tail-Duggan-Claims-Extramarital-affair&goto=newpost Fri, 16 Nov 2018 16:12:23 GMT
Disgruntled business owner Robert Carnack, star witness in the federal government's bribery case against Detroit Councilman Gabe Leland, has gone to extreme lengths on Wednesday in an attempt to publicly shame another elected official: Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.

Duggan arrives at the location without his personal protection unit in view, staying on three different occasions for between one and two hours, according to the video obtained by the Free Press. The 15-minute video identifies a woman and implies Carmack's allegations of an extramarital affair, although nothing in the video provides documentation of those allegations. The Free Press also has not independently verified the accusation.

Duggan and his wife issued a lengthy statement denying the allegation and condemning. See the end of this article:

Offensive word of the day “Man” https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23627-Offensive-word-of-the-day-“Man”&goto=newpost Fri, 16 Nov 2018 13:13:15 GMT
Seriously,the bright minds at Perdue university have decided the word,Man,is now offensive.

While the guide acknowledges that "man" originally conveyed a dual meaning, referring to either adult males or humans in general, it says the terminology is now considered offensive.

https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10539


https://www.christianpost.com/news/p...n-them-219184/

In an interview a student was asked,what about businesses with the word man in them,like Goldman Sachs.

Her reply was,people should stop shopping there until they change the name.

Think of how many words use the word,man,in there,like woman.

So you cannot refer to them as a woman,or a female,the opposite sex is definitely a no no,how about if we all just become like cousin It from the Adams family?

<![CDATA[How's Harper Woods These Days?]]> https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23626-How-s-Harper-Woods-These-Days&goto=newpost Fri, 16 Nov 2018 00:25:14 GMT
It's no question that Harper Woods has changed in the past 20 years. In 2000, the city was about 85% white. In 2010, whites held a slim plurality at 49%. Today, Harper Woods has a black majority with 56%, though there is still a significant White minority at about 38-40%. Beyond the racial figures, household income has remained relatively steady, and educational attainment (bachelors' degree) is fairly typical of Wayne County suburbs.

With the changes that are happening, a few questions must be asked.

1. While the "GP North is declining" line has been discussed frequently on DYes, if a bit too much, is it true? Does GP North hold its own against High Schools in the area? While it has always been a step below GP South, is the decline enough to cause parents in GP to pull their kids out and send them to private schools?

2. My understanding is that most of the crime in the city is either along the Detroit border on Kelly or concentrated around Eastland Mall. Essentially, the city gets better as you move eastward from Kelly. Is that a fair assessment? Is property crime concentrated in specific pockets of the city?

3. White Flight has certainly happened in HW, as evidenced by the statistics. But is it accelerating to the degree as in other inner-ring suburbs such as Eastpointe, Redford, and South Warren?

4. Have neighborhoods on the East side of the city, specifically neighborhoods east of I-94 that touch GPW, gone downhill noticeably? Or have they held up relatively well?

Thanks in advance for any comments/thoughts. Would appreciate to hear from any Harper Woods residents on this forum.

L. Brooks Patterson gone by year’s end? https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23624-L-Brooks-Patterson-gone-by-year’s-end&goto=newpost Thu, 15 Nov 2018 15:59:13 GMT
Oakland County has been moving steadily left over the past two decades. This year's election has seen the Democrats flipping and now holding a majority of the Oakland County Commission seats for the first time ever.

According to the rules if the Oakland County executive resigns or passes on the commission selects a successor.

It has been widely rumored that LBP was planning to step aside toward the end of his current term with the understanding that a Republican-majority commission would choose Sheriff Mike Bouchard to succeed him lending Bouchard the incumbent status going into the next election.

If that plan is still in place, LBP will now need to go before the new commission is seated in January.
