Out of the Tigers' hands

What is your opinion?

Do you love him or do you love to Hate him????

Greivance hearing

You can read the rest of the article here

Back in 2004 he was silenced but that happened in the early part of the season and the Tigers were not drawing the crowds that they do now. Many fans, including season ticket holders, rallied to Charley's assistance and management relented with some restrictions on his activities.

Is it Over???

Charley fired after 15 years of selling hot dogs at the Tiger's games.

BBC= Bring Back Charley

Save Charley! We're really sad to hear the Tigers fired him. The ballgames just won't be as much fun without him. Let's try to get him back.

Intimate Views of Detroit’s Great Architecture & History

SAT 2013-10-05

DETROIT: The Palmer Park Historic Register Apartment District is undergoing a dramatic rehabilitation as a steppingstone along Detroit's path to revitalization. Nearly a dozen buildings in this historic district - some of which have been abandoned for decades -are in the process of major renovations. Explore this urban renewal firsthand and up close at the Third Annual Guided Walking Tour of Palmer Park's Historic Apartment District.

People for Palmer Park's guided walking tours begin at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 at the Detroit Unity Temple located at 17505 Second Ave., in Detroit, where free and secure parking is available. Tour groups leave every 15 minutes.

Home to some of Detroit's most varied and grand architecture-including a true gem, Albert Kahn's 1001 Covington also known as Walbri Court - Detroit's historic Palmer Park neighborhood is experiencing an exciting renaissance.

"These are very well designed buildings, each with a unique history," says Gregory Piazza, a former 30-year resident of several buildings in the District and founder of the tour. "After seeing these apartments, people can actually follow an architect's work as they look around the city and the area and see how his work changed with the times," says Piazza.

Advance tickets can be purchased at palmerparktour2013.eventbrite.com/. For more information about the tour, call 313-757-2751 or visit peopleforpalmerpark.org. Tickets will be available at the event as well.

"One of Detroit's greatest assets is its architecture," Sarah James, chair of the tour explains, "and the historic Palmer Park district showcases work of some of the most prominent Detroit architects of the 20th century.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to enter newly-renovated lobby of the Palmer Lodge, an impressive 57,406-square-foot Tudor Revival and the first apartment building to be erected in the district. It is truly exciting to witness life being breathed back into a long-neglected gem of an area, and tour-goers can experience the progression of this rebirth first-hand."

This year's tour features six other of the District's building interiors: Kahn's building at Walbri Court, lobbies and interior units of 825 and 850 Whitmore from the 1940s and '50s, the Moorish-style lobby of the Luxor, and Art Deco-influenced Detroit Unity Temple. Docents, many dressed in period attire, will provide insights at each location.

Built between 1924 and 1964, the apartments reflect exotic architecture in the Egyptian, Spanish, Venetian, Moorish, Tudor, Mediterranean, Art Moderne, and Georgian styles. Few neighborhoods boast this kind of magnificent diversity. Because of the wide range of influences brought by having many significant Detroit architects building in a concentrated area - including Frank Weidmaier and John B. Gay, Robert West, and Isadore Lewis - the Palmer Park apartment district is a blend of numerous architectural styles and eras.

Before or after the walking tour, tour goers can enjoy festivities in Palmer Park where the Log Cabin, designed in the 1880s by Mason and Rice, is open from noon to 5 pm. Live music by "Behind the Times" and delicious local food from Food Lab vendors are on hand, with opportunities for attendees to take Segway tours through Palmer Park's historic forest trails. Also planned is an invitational display of restored vintage and classic cars near the Log Cabin. Select vehicles show how architectural design trends influenced automotive designs during the particular eras the tour buildings were constructed.

Some of the buildings in this historic district had been vacant and in states of disrepair for decades. In recent years, developers, including Kathy Makino-Leipsitz and Mark Leipsitz of Shelborne Development/Malino Construction, have been rehabilitating many of the District's buildings. Makino-Leipsitz and Leipsitz have bought nearly a dozen of the buildings near the park and have plans to not only fix up the apartments, but to make the District into a thriving neighborhood once more.

The apartment district and adjacent Palmer Park and historical district were once the estate of Sen. Thomas W. Palmer. In the late 1890s, he donated nearly 300 acres to the City of Detroit to be used as a public park. About a decade after his death, his dream of developing the area took off, giving rise to the significant architecture that is being rehabilitated today.

What: Tour of Historic Palmer Park Apartment District and Palmer Park presented by People for Palmer Park with the support of the City of Detroit's Recreation Department, Palmer Park Apartments, and Shelborne Development/Malino Construction.

When: Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (tours leave every 15 minutes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Log Cabin activities open at noon) Why: To celebrate and appreciate Palmer Park revival, history and architecture Who: People interested in the rich history and renewal of this beautiful historic area How much: Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Tour book is included in the ticket price. Advance tickets can be purchased at http://palmerparktour2013.eventbrite.com/ What else: Find out more information at peopleforpalmerpark.org All proceeds will be used for the benefit of Detroit's Palmer Park. People for Palmer Park, is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation, reinvention, and revitalization of Palmer Park, for the good of all. Palmer Park is comprised of 296 acres of lawns and historic woodlands, a public golf course, hiking and biking trails, Lake Frances, a historic log cabin, and more. Located between 6 and 7 Mile Roads and west of Woodward Avenue in Detroit, it has been a treasured nature park and recreation site for more than 100 years.

Bonfire & Hayride
Ann Arbor Ski Club

SAT 2013-10-05

So Long, Summer. . . Hello, Fall. . .

To celebrate the change of seasons and, well, just to get everyone together for some fun, we're organizing a group Hay Ride and Bon Fire again this year, at Bishop Lake Riding Stable (6660 Chilson Road, Howell, MI) in the Brighton State Recreation Area (see map below) on Saturday, October 5th.

Cost will be $10.00 per person ("pay at the door") which includes our own private bonfire, the hay ride, and S'mores. Our party will run from 7:30pm to whenever you have to leave. Last year, they were willing to let us stay as long as we wanted to hang out around our bonfire.

Plan to arrive at 7:30pm, when we'll begin socializing around our private bonfire (look for our group's bonfire between the parking lot and the barn), and organizing for the Hay Ride, which will depart at about 9:00. There's room for thirty on each wagon, and the wagons leave every half-hour. So, if there's not enough room for all of us on one wagon, we can hang out by the fire for the next wagon. Following the Hay Ride, we'll return to our own private group bonfire for more socializing.

This year, you should plan to bring a snack to pass, your beverage of choice, a folding chair and maybe a blanket if it's cold that night. Alcohol is allowed "in moderation." That just means don't flaunt it, especially away from our private bonfire.

Now, since we can't predict the weather, if it looks like rain that evening, please call Joe Knopp at 810-923-1567. If weather threatens, we'll make a decision by 6:00pm and let you know if we will cancel or reschedule.

To help us prepare, please let me know by email joeknopp@gmail.com if you plan to join us. We need to let the facility know how many wagons (30 people each) to reserve.

Fall Color Hikes
Catholic Alumni Club

SUN 2013-10-06

FALL COLOR HIKES

You can't miss the peak of the leaves changing colors if you make a point of going out on a one to two hour hike - every week! Please, able-bodied individuals only, since we will travel "over hill and dale" in search of the perfect view! (Those who want to attend for the cider, donuts, and fellow- ship but won't be hiking can meet us at the rendezvous location either before or after the activity.) Each Sunday will be a different location, and at a different time. Bring a comfortable pair of sneakers, water and snacks, clothing for cold or rainy weather, a camera, compass / GPS, and money for the cider mill or buying dinner if the group wants to go out afterward. A staff or a pair of hiking poles is recommended but optional. Backpackers are welcome to use these trips to practice gearing up. Maps will be distributed upon arrival. There are no parking fees and most of the time no park entry fees. Your only cost will be how much cider and donuts you purchase! RSVP to: Our host by the Saturday before each hike. See each hike described in detail under Activities for October for each date.
