GO TIGERS!

HANGING WITH THE MISSUS AND TIGERS MASCOT "PAWS" AT COMERICA PARK IN DETROIT.

Yup, it was fun to watch the Detroit Tigers come out with a win on opening day.  I hope they continue their winning ways all the way to the World Series.  That would be fun and I am sure that the City of Detroit would not mind the boost of good energy for a change.  Just remember, though, if the Detroit Tigers win the World Series this year (or any year, for that matter), PLEASE do not burn the city down in an alcohol-induced “celebration”.  1984 was bad enough!!  But anyway, I digress…GO TIGERS, GO!  Let’s have a winning season and bring the World Series trophy back to Detroit!

MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP LOOKS TO ITSELF FOR DIRECTION.

MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS ATTEND LAST NIGHT'S PLANNING SESSION.

Marquette Township Supervisor Dennis Liimatta came by the studios this morning to discuss and recap the first public input session that was hosted by the Marquette Township Board of Trustees designed to gather and organize comments and ideas from township residents in an effort to maintain transparency in the strategic planning process for the future of the township.  The meeting was fairly well attended for a first session, and according to Liimatta, they expect to get an increase in township residents attending the sessions as they continue over the rest of this month.  To listen to the comments from today’s interview with Dennis, please click “HERE“.  To log on to the Marquette Township website, please click “HERE“.

SMART TALK ABOUT MICHIGAN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS.

MSU PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS, DR. CHARLES BALLARD.

Dr. Charles Ballard, Professor of Economics at Michigan State University in East Lansing visited the studios this morning for a conversation promoting a presentation on campus.  Dr. Ballard shared some very logical arguments for changes in our current state and national political systems to get the state of Michigan out of it’s current financial crisis.  With a sensical approach to eliminating the political rhetoric and getting down to actual financial business, Dr. Ballard’s points make a high degree of sense and anyone concerned about the fiscal future of our state should take a few minutes and listen to the interview.  To do so, please click “HERE“.  For more on Dr. Charles Ballard and his academic and fiscal background and his history as an economic educator, please click “HERE“.
