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.

I Thought the Lions practice facility was mainly located in Allen Park.
Michael D. Albano March 12, 2014 at 10:45 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 side of the structure, and that is why it is referred to as being in Allen Park, when it reality, most of it is in Dearborn...

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

Nelson Mandela was a tireless advocate of his causes, and always looked to reach across the aisleRead More for a solution to satisfy all sides. I am sure he would have approved of Michigan becoming a 'Right to Work' state, which allows workers the right and freedom in the workplace to choose for themselves whether to belong to a union or not, one of the many forms of freedom that Nelson Mandela was famous for in South Africa, and around the world.

Nelson Mandela is a hero of mine. So is Mahatma Ghandi. Both sought and affected change throughRead More non-violence. Another hero is Henry David Thoreau who was the architect of "Civil Disobedience" practiced by Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi. Special men in a time that required special actions. Not sure that I could endure what they did. I'm not inclined to turning a cheek for anyone. P3

It's a fine thing that the Patch syndicate included a bulletin of this tragic event. You see, I haveRead More been living in a cave with no access to a radio, television, newspapers or any other media, so I didn't know that the former president of South Africa had died. Now, if only I could find a source for local news.

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.

RIP in a warm and sunny place!

I did not know he passed on til now. I used to watch him when I was a little girl. So bubbly andRead More sunny. A real pleasure to listen to the weather through him. RIP, my friend.

Tony, I understand it cant be taught, but many comedians have said they would watch and try to copyRead More another comedian delivery...... a clue to other forecasters wannabees .

Nasir has to agree to the new modifications, he may not like them as they may not allow him to doRead More everything he wanted to do. I was told it's all in the hands of the attorneys who they are waiting for. However, since he has known and had this property for 2.5 years or so, I cannot believe we are still waiting.

Two years ago I shot Riverside for a school assignment. I went home and cried developing the photos.Read More I can only imagine the state of the old hospital now. I hope something is done with it soon or it may fall down on it's own.
