I saw Elaine last year at WSU's Drama School when she won an Apple Award. At 88, although herRead More memory was failing her & in a wheelchair, she still had "stage presence" & spunk. She had a ton of stories & was feisty as could be during the Q & A. I will miss her ... as will Broadway.

What is wrong with the author of this piece? What "golden age" of homicidal thugs is heRead More hallucinating? Gee, he misses the Golden Age of murders, forced prostitution, loan sharking, extortion, beatings and mutilations. I'd have loved to see this clown's memorializing of Joe Stalin and Idi Amin.

As long as there is human life on earth..there will be those who benefit from others...organizedRead More crime is a fact of life..it hides behind black robes...badges..elected officials and government...What the author meant, by Golden Years, I believe, was a time when it was actually a part of this country's start..immigrants who were oppressed became the oppressors...part of every history of every country. Now we have unorganized thugs...killing innocents in the street...shooting the wrong people and those who can't aim to save themselves. ..I'm not glorifying the Mafia...but what we have today with the Russian, Mexican and plain street thugs is so much worse...we are all targets...it wasn't that way during those " old" days of organized crime. You can just be walking down a street and your a target for an initiation or you're mistaken for someone or a 2 yr.old is in the way. I'll take the mafia any day over this stupidity.

Her poem about inequality fits the Muslim women very well. "Take the blinders from yourRead More vision, take the padding from your ears, and confess you’ve heard me crying, and admit you’ve seen my tears. Equality, and I will be free. Equality, and I will be free."

A positive attitude is the key to longevity, there is positive in anything, even Obamacare, as itRead More allows folk to find a use for spending extra money that will help the less fortunate, whether they wanted the healthcare or not. The passengers on the 777 flight are probably safe and secure in Pakistan, held as long term hostages by nefarious folk. Obama will probably win the basketball March madness, since he deems that more important than world affairs, but that's ok, at least something is being accomplished. Keep that positve attitude.

Considering how long and well he lived, we would be wise to heed his advice! Also, the fact thatRead More his son said that he will "miss his companionship" would imply he was a genuine man. I hope my children will miss that about me one day.

This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. This has to do with a good man looking at lifeRead More from a positive view point. Maybe exercise, good food, and the ability to learn new things.

I Thought the Lions practice facility was mainly located in Allen Park.
Michael D. Albano March 12, 2014 at 10:44 am
A few years back at a council meeting, it was stated that the Lion's Practice Facility is 18% inRead More Allen Park and 82% in Dearborn. The address is located on the Allen Park and that is why it is referred to as being in Allen Park...

My condolences to the Ford Family. In a world of faceless corporations and institutions, it isRead More good to see the roots of such a great company and to know the family is still a part of that corporation!

The Lions were a mess for so many years . But it was his team and he ran it his wayRead More . Just when they get a really good coach this happens . I think the Lions may make the playoffs . They should dedicate the season to WCF . He was a great man for the city with all his generous contributions and charity work . He will be missed . RIP True Blue Ford man .

Shouldn't the title of this article be "IN MEMORIAM"? This means "in memoryRead More of". I don't know what "IN MEMORIAL" means. Charlie May

Memorial-Something intended to celebrate or honor the memory of a person or an event.
Heather Miles-Haggard May 22, 2013 at 09:07 pm
It would be nice to also celebrate people's lives while they are still living with us. For exampleRead More Mildred Miles was recently voted Woman of the Year by the ECW of St. James Church of Grosse Ile. Their was a lovely dinner at the Country Club. Mildred and her husband are small business owners for many many years and have 11 grown children, 17 grandchildren, and a dozen great-grandchildren most whom reside in Grosse Ile, Trenton, Gibraltar, and Wyandotte areas. Besides serving her church, Mildred's husband serves his community in many ways as well as serving over 30 years on the Fire Dept. It would be wonderful if some of your reporters could find out about Outstanding Citizens, and dedicated people who work behind the scenes. An example would be Rhonda Brown who works at the thrift store at St. Thomas and at Aurthur's Closet. Or Rhonda Burk, Arthurs' school secretary who makes dresses for girls of Africa.

I see Patch is still using the "people who died" phrase here. It would be more respectfulRead More if they changed it to read, people who passed away.
Ron March 31, 2013 at 03:52 pm
I might suggest you replace the word died with passed away. It just sounds more respectful of ourRead More friends and family members.
Ron March 20, 2012 at 03:08 pm
Mr. Ghindia was one of my most memorable teachers in high school. Often referred to as Gumper, I canRead More still hear his stern voice in the hallways and ice rink. He was much more than just another teacher and always lead by example. He expected so much more from his students both in and out of the classroom and never really stopped teaching. His passion and concern was so evident. Admired and respected by so many he has truly left a great legacy. My sincere sympathy to the Ghindia family.
