Detroit’s comeback is grabbing the nation’s attention, including this blog at the Huffington Post: “Detroit Hustles Harder: the All-American Comeback City” by Shannah L. Compton and co-authored by Jeff Game.

There is a city in the middle of America that is fast becoming a hipster haven full of artists, young entrepreneurs, and a rapidly rising restaurant scene – and we are not talking about the Windy City. Detroit is on the comeback trail, and travelers around the world will be taking notice.

Mercy Mercy Me
Once the classic Americana city, Detroit was the industrial manufacturing mecca for decades around the world. The bottom finally dropped out in 2013 when Detroit became the largest American municipality to declare bankruptcy.

Random Musings of A Teenage Girl: A Letter To Detroit From A National Youth Gathering Participant


Because I am a Detroit, and am proud to say it. I may no longer live in the city, infact I have live out of the city longerthen I lived in it, but I am Detroit….


images (2)Dear Detroit,
My name is Cassie and I’m from a small town in North Carolina, where our largest building is Wal-Mart. I have always wanted to experience life in a big city, and you did not disappoint, but rather exceeded my expectations. You see, I was expecting a city filled with broken dreams and shattered glass, a city devoid of life and hope. I expected a scene of desolation against the backdrop of a dead city.

Detroit-area couple in gay marriage case sets the date


This is a non-story… Here is why, if you want equality, then you cannot keep calling out your differences… Gay or not, black or white, tall or short… Who cares. The Supreme Court of America took it upon themselves to rewrite our laws, that is the story. The fact that 2 people are getting married, so what!  I am not for, and never will be for Gay Marriage, I am all for, and always will be for Civil Unions. This has gotten out of control…


635730757810505596-DeBoer-062615-13-MW

Save the date: Less than two months from now, April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse will be a married couple.

And for DeBoer, it’s a surreal fact.

Just weeks ago, the two Hazel Park nurses were on pins and needles awaiting the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision to legalize gay marriage across the country. The couple’s lawsuit against Michigan was at the forefront of the case.

Now, the couple is in the midst of planning their Aug. 22 wedding in Southfield.

“We’re doing all this planning and everything, but I don’t know that it’s actually sunk in that we can do this, that it will be for real this time,” DeBoer said in an interview with the Free Press Tuesday. “The fact it’s not a commitment ceremony but a legal ceremony, it’s still kind of sinking in.”

DeBoer said earlier that federal Judge Bernard Friedman, who struck down Michigan’s gay-marriage ban, will officiate their wedding.

“We are trying to get everything done,” she said. “It’s a quick date and we’re trying to get everything together and organized and done well.”

Should have been life ….

DETROIT (WJBK) –
The local doctor who put hundreds of people through unnecessary cancer treatments to collect insurance money has been given a 45-year prison term.

Dr. Farid Fata’s unusual sentencing was a five-day process.

U.S. District Judge Paul Borman heard from experts who criticized how Fata treated patients. He’s also heard distressful stories from about two dozen patients. Witnesses were also called to rebut some of the unflattering testimony about Fata.
