Kevin McCullough on the Nuances of Unrest in Kenosha, WI

"Today right now is Kevin McCullough. He's talking about the Kyle whitton written house written house verdict that just came in just about an hour or so ago. And let's continue on with that with Kevin McCallum. Kevin? Well, we were talking before the break a little bit about the dynamic. I think the media really missed on this because when you're talking about police violence in New York or Chicago or Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, LA, you're talking about a very different dynamic than you are in Kenosha Wisconsin. I've been to Kenosha Wisconsin, a bunch of times. It is a college town. You have the big university of Wisconsin there. You have the it is in essence. It is a city technically, but it is in the middle of farmland. And you don't have people just rolling up to go protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin on a regular basis. There's a very different sort of vibe and feel. And when people are saying, why would Kyle rittenhouse who didn't live in the exact neighborhood where this went down? Why would he come over there to do that? Well, in the Midwest, farmers have each other's back in small towns look out for one another, and so forth. And by the same standard, if you had these protesters bust in causing the perpetrated and very intentional chaos that they were trying to create, then why wouldn't people that were from the region also say, well, wait a minute, not in my house. I'm not going to let this go down. So I think the media fundamentally misunderstood the fabric of who they were covering and where it was from, but they also obviously got it quite wrong in that the prosecutors just did not have they didn't have much of a case. When you have one of the victims saying that he pointed a gun at the accused and has to admit that, you know, he had basically threatened him by pointing the gun at him. That's an immediate wash. I'm surprised that the judge didn't almost at that point throw that case out completely just on

I put my racing geek hat on a couple of interesting points in the track especially the what will probably end up being a hairpin around the the pfister joe louis and the dual lane pits so rather than one long pit area. They'll be a central like island. And then you're low pit on either side of it depending on because not a lot of space and i think the entrance and exit out of that could be very interesting and a lot of really good race strategy and very exciting from a fan standpoint there mentioning that on the jefferson side. It's going to be kind of like sao paulo in brazil where you'll have traffic flowing next. Two cars going one hundred seventy miles an hour. Now that might give some people a heart attack but i kinda wanna try it. It's really interesting.

Frankly gave me some more context about places without a vehicle. And i think that's so important in a region where we've had so many stops and starts with transit yet. I believe last i look. Detroit is one of the top ten cities in the nation for households without a car right. It is The number right now is about twenty. Five percent of households do not have access to vehicle in. That's i think one of the most popular types of maps than host on my blog are either Fantasy transit systems or historic transit systems of detroit. You know i think that's it's both a inequity issue as well as economic issue everything you really do. See that kind of stark between the city of detroit and the surrounding areas when it comes to vehicle access also showed me that there were some areas that i think i was surprised about that. Actually do have a number of households without a vehicle in the suburbs will right. That's true too yeah. Couldn't this be used for planning purposes or you're going to invest in these kinds of services. I feel like good. Maps could really help us going forward. Yeah i would never disagree with that. How can a map help the conversation between maybe the planner or someone like that who sees possibly a need and then may be selling that need to the public because you also especially if you're going to say ask for taxes or ask for a special millage that kind of stuff or even deal with council members to get approval help in that conversation i always see the maps or magic and you know for better for worse you can put something on a map and people believe it.

"And then finally, but you're sharp gives us some news on what happened with the niece of fall tournament one local team is in and one local team is out. First up the covid-19 numbers in Michigan. We haven't touched on these in a while and there are some new stories around it too since Saturday there have been more than 1,300 new cases in eight fact, he's bringing the Statewide total of confirmed coronavirus cases since the start of pandemic to more than 120 2700. There have been 6730 birth deaths since this all began in the city of Detroit. The State Fairgrounds testing center has been relocated. It's moving to the Joseph Walker Williams community center on Rosa Parks. That's in the Virginia South Park neighborhood just north of Grand Boulevard and Henry Ford Hospital the facility opens Tuesday and can handle as many tests per day as the old Fairgrounds site. However, testing volume is not near its pandemic Pete currently when launched the fairgrounds testing site was a model for the nation and its ability to handle a high number of tests.

The investigation was also spurred in part by a letter from the nonpartisan League of Women Voters. There also was a report and record in the Detroit Free Press were a trainer for a california-based petition Gathering company on the field Incorporated was caught saying and I quote this can be a real shady job. And when I say shady, I mean people do all sorts of illegals all the time and never get caught. It's really hard to get caught doing except for like forgeries.

He posted about on social media where signature gatherers at an Aldi in Clawson off or positioning this measure as giving the governor additional powers to deal with the pandemic which is the reverse of what this petition Drive does. It strips the governor's powers and puts more.

Then you're the healthiest eater among us by far Jeff some recommendations for those who are left without yeah where to get Vegan in Detroit. Yeah sure do Detroit Vegan soldier Jerry and I have had lunch over there in the West village. Good spot very good very good very very good quality food cacao tree in Royal Oak right next to the railroad tracks down there. Oh I haven't tried that one another really good spot had only been there once But I had a Burrito. There's a lot of raw food on the menu there but it was fantastic a really good fresh food I remember Joe Hakeem from back in the hungry hungry dudes days set me off to that place and I saw a tweet from him that said that he he swore by that place and so I tried it staying in Royal Oak one of my favorite restaurants period period like meat or otherwise is in season cafe. I love that restaurant. I think they do a fantastic job. It's a fairly small menu but they everything they make is just like you can taste the love and the food. It's fresh You know well prepared food very flavorful very tasty head back downtown there save. Aw Aw of course in midtown. I'm all about that general sells cauliflower. Yeah save is safe house good. You know it's the Detroit outpost of a longtime Ann Arbor Vegetarian in staple restaurant. You know it's been in business since the seventy S if I remember correctly also the only recommendation off the top of my head that has a full bark. It's always a good thing you know. I used to be a vegetarian for many years. I was never vegan but I was vegetarian. And you know we're blessed in the Detroit area with a wealth of Middle Eastern restaurants which is a very vegetarian friendly cuisine as is Indian. And there's a lot of good Indian restaurants in parts of Metro Detroit Anyway I think Indian food is is largely vegetarian to begin with and it's super flavorful. Vegetarian food so I don't think that greenspace leaves a you know a a desert or void. Necessarily I haven't been there. My wife was a big fan of have greenspace. I'M GONNA try to get in there before they closed because it has been on my list. I know she's upset about it because she really liked that place. You're talking about Indian food. I gotta give a new recommendation. nationlly recently discovered by me but I have multiple friends. Who Vouch for this place? It's actually in Northville across from the Sheraton out there. All right. It's called Daba Indian cuisine and it is in a BP gas station of all places and it's got a wide variety of dishes there well executed. It's it's a total carry out place. I guess there's a couple couple of chairs that are shared with the gas station. Here's a deal and you know that I love this combination of like the gas station. It's such a Detroit yet. So Detroit the tasty burgers and Dearborn. There's a bunch of places I I just. I is so quintessentially metro-detroit well then if you're fan of that checkout Mr Kebab in Berkeley I'm not sure what the gas station affiliated with is. I've never been there but I've had their food and because a friend of mine's a is a huge fan of it and it is indeed Worthwhile for sure. Mr Kebab in Berkeley Detroit is a desirable place to be. According to a reason. Poll of a thousand Americans a website called the storage space says as they commissioned a poll asking people if they could move anywhere in the country. Where would they move to in two thousand twenty on the list of twenty cities Detroit at number eighteen? And that's is GONNA be right between Albuquerque New Mexico at Seventeen and Bozeman Montana at nineteen which I've learned the intervening time. I finding this out that Bozeman is apparently growing like crazy. Like who knew it must be all the people moving there to be dental floss. Tycoons you ever heard that Frank Zappa Song. Oh my that. The nineteen seventy one. I think seventy seventy one anyway. Now the reason given to move to the city because and this is a direct quote it's perfect for hipsters. I what's what's that mean. I'm not sure. Does that mean that like is that like. Are you counting all people who like pour overs. Because then I think we're both hipsters. What does that mean exactly? I have no idea. I don't know it's Bozeman. Good for hipster sue or Albuquerque. But here's the thing I have learned that in the intervening time facebook commenters do not like hipsters Okay storage space sites greater downtown's low comparative rent to other big cities which although one thousand seventy five bucks is high for most current city residents and let's face it most metro detroiters. It's a bargain for New Yorkers and others who are used to paying a lot more for a lot less in square footage I mean span you and I have both been through New York and other places. Prices are much higher there. I mean you can get a place for certain amounts of money. But YOU'RE GONNA get tiny little tiny little places allow me to introduce myself represented. The rent is too damn high party anecdotally. When I lived in midtown a couple of years ago it seemed like pretty much every new neighbor Svend van? That was moving in wasn't from the BURBS. But and in fact the people who would tour rentals and other places if they were from the burbs normally they would settle on like Grosse Pointe or Ferndale n'dale or Dearborn or something but the folks moving in they were like from New York Chicago. Seattle San Francisco that kind of thing. I know that's like completely legally anecdotal but it just something I've noticed being here and a lot of those folks were moving in for jobs that say quicken or like some people that we know actually they. They were keeping their west or east coast salary and living in Detroit which working. Yeah which gives you a huge economic advantage around here anyway in the story. I got to braise them for shoutouts to stand by skip astro coffee and batch brewing. What I'm about to say is no knock against them? I actually enjoy those places quite a bit. But there's more to the city than just those places I mean. There's like so much more to the city for that like always keep getting written up anyway rounding out the top three on. The list are Franklin in Tennessee. Atlanta Georgia which by the way apparently is good for singles and the top billing goes to high low Hawaii which sounds amazing looking at the multiple inches of snow outside my window right now Atlanta and high low make sense. I have to Google. Franklin Tennessee even is up. That's a new one for me. I'm GonNa Guess Tennessee. It looks like it's a suburb of Nashville. I guess that makes sense.

"Welcome back from the holiday weekend. There is a lot going on. So let's just get right to it last week on the show we told you how a Capitol reporter up in Lansing Lansing alleged. That state Senator Peter Lucido of Shelby Township made a sexist remark to her while she tried to interview him. Now a fellow state senator of Lagos Acevedo's said she's filing a workplace sexual harassment complaint against him state. Senator Mallory Mc Moro tells cranes the incident took place in November or twenty eighteen after she was first elected to her seat representing the Thirteenth District in Oakland County Mc Moro a Democrat from Royal Oak said. She introduced herself to Lucido a Republican at an orientation event for newly elected senators. She said Lucido shook her hand but kept his other hand on her lower back throughout the conversation conversation when mcmorris told him that she had defeated an incumbent Republican she said Lucido looked her up and down and told her I can see why McMurdo said she. She stayed silent because she was a freshman. Senator Endless Saito was a former member of the State House who had just been elected to a state Senate seat in the majority party. Her account account was partly backed up by a fellow Senate. Lawmaker who witnessed. Lucy does hand on her lower back. Lucie told crain's the allegation was quote completely untrue and politically motivated unquote. The news comes a week after Michigan advanced reporter Alison Donohue reported. That Lucido told her in front of a a group of Catholic schoolboys quote. You could have a lot of fun with these boys or they could have a lot of fun with you and quote the Senate Business Office is investigating that incident cendant upon request of Senate leaders from both parties. The CTO is a licensed attorney. Who served two terms in the State House before being elected to the state Senate in two thousand eighteen he? He has been widely thought to be considering a run for governor. A lot of people have been talking online about how much money has been raised by recreational marijuana on in Michigan in. Its first six weeks and of course we also chatted about it on this very show more than ten million in sales and about one point seven million in taxes however a new report from Steve needling at the Metro Times puts this all in perspective that in fact Michigan has been far behind other states in recreational marijuana sales ails early on for instance Illinois there. It took just five days to sell what Michigan did in six weeks. There are quite a few reasons for this. Including the fact that Michigan has a very limited number of licensed dispensaries that are actually open. Also as we've talked about here on the show. Eighty percent of cities have opted out of selling selling recreational marijuana altogether that means no dispensaries and no shared revenue for those places slowly. Michigan is bringing new dispensaries online. The first licensed since medical marijuana dispensary and Wayne County has opened first quality meds with a Z.. In River Rouge the next closest one Ann Arbor. This city of Detroit is a place place where an overwhelming majority of residents voted for legalized marijuana. However they're extending their temporary ban on dispensaries through at least March the the vote by city council was unanimous as it works on a city specific social equity program chairs really interesting how so many communities at least voters communities wanted marijuana to be legal? And yet you know people don't want it sold in their communities Nimby at its finest I mean for sure I mean you look at that in the city of Detroit royal folks wrestling with this problem to royal oak overwhelmingly wanted recreational and medical marijuana. But there's a big debate. Now Okay do we want them on Woodward Avenue. Is that something that they wanna the have. It's amazing how many of these communities like I feel like there's just like this huge disconnect between leadership and like what people want and that Illinois for example. I wanted to pull it out because like it's so crazy to me you'd think we'd if we had our ducks in a row we'd have so much more money in the coffers. Yeah you know I keep going back to kind of the cultural roll obstacles that marijuana has to overcome and it's GonNa take a long time. I mean you know. This was a drug that was totally demonized. Going way back to the founding of this country you know it was associated with with immigrants with people of Color essentially. I mean it was. It was used as a racist Haji. Yeah absolutely it was just socially ostracized you know. You did not want people to know that you smoke marijuana. And it's like I'm a father of two kids and I think about it all the time it's like you know marijuana's basically on par now at least legally with alcohol so so but it's GonNa take a long time until we can kind of equate the two substances like. Yeah no no different really than drinking. You know you just have to be twenty one on and you know by by other rules but you know it's GonNa take a long time like there's a lot of social stigma that needs to kind of evaporate and it might take a couple of generations. Shins I think frankly well and I think that stigma probably affecting those politicians responses. The Illitch family has made a proposal to the city in which it would hand over two properties. It owns in exchange for an extension on a deadline to submit a new development plan for property owns in the district. Detroit Olympia Development has has been criticized heavily including on this podcast for the slow pace of development in the district. Detroit which is today mostly surface parking lots under the deal it would get until September twenty twenty two to submit plans for the parcel. Just south of little caesars arena where it had originally planned to build a hotel and retail stores ars in exchange. The city will get to open lots one in brush park and the other in midtown that it would convert to public parks. The plan must first be approved by the city council. So then I know I have thanks. I know you have. Thanks my thinks is you know. I mean we've talked a lot about the district troy and its failings on the show. A lot taxpayer. Money went to you. Know the this whole idea of the district Detroit in the little caesars arena and everything and there's we've got surface parking lots and I'd point out. We were actually part part of that that earlier. Trench of criticism because at I mean we're right around all the time. Yeah I would say that illegitimate supposedly floating these new figures figures of like jobs construction jobs and full time permanent jobs that would go along with this extended deadline. Kate fine whatever I mean you know. They don't have a great track record on delivering on these things in the past. I mean going way back to well before the district attorney. This is the cities. This is their first opportunity. One opportunity at least to extract a pound of flesh from illegit out of this deal. I mean I think okay. It's well and good to get two parcels to Macon departs but like let's start putting some teeth into these agreements agreements. Like I think the city needs to take time and really come up and say how can we build in some assurances that they're going to do what they say here and Dan Come out with some actual tangible benefits to the city. Well especially going forward. Is this deal the first district Detroit deal was I believe done under bankruptcy and so this was not done by the current administration. I will note. That Duggan says that this is. He believes that this is a good deal. I wonder what the actual market demand is for those properties. Brady's right so if this property trade is a good deal key seeing things behind the scenes that maybe we are aren't if there were a bunch of suitors somebody wanting to drop a bunch of money on this land and I wonder if he would take that or did he look at this and go well parks is best. We're going to get right now. Yes good point. Vegan restaurant greenspace cafe has announced. It will close its flagship. Sit Down Restaurant Down Ferndale..

"Hard top Detroit for more all right first. Up is the news that the federal government and the trump administration are going to get more involved in law enforcement in the city of Detroit. US Attorney General. William Bar unveiled operation relentless pursuit. That's a seventy one million dollar initiative focus on violent crime gangs and drug trafficking and a number of cities including the motor city as well as has albuquerque. Baltimore Cleveland Memphis Milwaukee and Kansas City. The idea is that federal money and talent would partner with local agencies to get the most violent violent offenders off the streets and it is true. That Detroit has the highest violent crime rate per capita in the country but bar was heavy with rhetoric in an editorial in conservative. Detroit news today saying that policing reforms that offered leniency to violent offenders anti police rhetoric and a surge in police officers assaulted led to increases in crime in two thousand fifteen and twenty sixteen the Attorney General referred to operation relentless pursuit as a quote surge. And I'd note that that's a term arm that's often reserved from military operations that will build on the Justice Department's project safe neighborhoods project guardian. And something they're calling deep the disruption in an early engagement program with the goal of reducing gun crime and preventing mass shootings. There would be in their words state of the art technology deployed and about four. One hundred officers nationwide hired for the program but where those officers are going to specifically go. Well that hasn't been announced Jer- I'm GonNa Guess You. There's some thoughts on this one. I I for sure. Do you know as a longtime city resident gotta say and this is regardless of party because both Democrats and Republicans have. I've been heavy on enforcement things. I am always sceptical of anything. That seems more focused on closing people into jail cells than opening doors of opportunity. And let's let's be completely clear here. I am not against lowering crime. Like lowering. Crime is a very good goal but the route and real causes of crime in urban America it's poverty and it's a lack of opportunities and the schools that graduate only ten percent of their kids. That are ready for college. And we've covered this a taunt on this very show programs that focus I mostly enforcement especially and here's the thing they're they're pairing this with cuts to education on a federal level. I mean these are like band. AIDS being applied to gushing wounds and our country has a lot of wounds whether it's an equity racism racism a bunch of other issues. And I mean I don't. I don't think this is a winning combination because if there were jobs proper schools there are more opportunities if people wouldn't turn to crime and I think that's the thing is that we've got to get to the root causes of this and because so many people try to deal with these issues don't live in these kind of communities communities or have to deal with them they don't know how to handle them and make a real dent and locally. I am really cognizant of the verbiage and the feel talking some neighbors of mine. This feels a lot like stress back in the day it was called stopped robberies. Enjoy safe streets and if you didn't know what that was it was basically an undercover unit of the Detroit Police Department in the early Seventies. That were thugs. I mean straight up killing scores of African Americans and there's a great episode of Crime Crime Town that linked to in the show notes. But I mean it is. It is scary when you talk about heavy enforcement for a lot of African Americans in this country and if you want to know one of the key things powered Mayor Coleman young into office. Detroit's first black mayor that I know a lot of listeners find controversial it was enlarged response to to the evils of that stress unit to the African American community and the large number of people. They killed so i. I personally skeptical. Jared skeptical off in a case of to paraphrase Brittany Spears. oops I doubt again. The Detroit free press is reporting the DOM. Oh the largest contractor as part one of the city's massive demolition program as again demolished the wrong house. They had a contract for more than twenty five thousand dollars to demolish house on Alma Street. But they got the address wrong and took down a house a block over. It's absurd it's not good and we'll put a Lincoln show notes to the full story a quick reminder that poverty exemption. MCI for your property taxes in the city of Detroit needs to be applied for by the end of tomorrow December twentieth. The exemption can take between half and all of your tax bill love if you are a homeowner who qualifies the program which has already been extended runs through December twentieth. To See if you can make it go to Detroit I am. I dot g-o-v or dot Gov and search for H. P. T. A. P. H. P. T. a. p. also put a link in the show notes. So here's an interesting one related to big plant. FCA is building on. Detroit's east side on Mac as part of the massive deal to get that done. FCA FCA has transferred. Half of what will be one point. Eight million dollars to Detroit's Housing and Revitalization Department to fund a Home Repair Grant Program homeowners. Living living near the plant can get up to fifteen thousand dollars per property to fix up their homes. And here's a key. This is a grant not alone so you don't have to pay it back. Applications locations will open in the spring. And we'll be sure to talk about it again. When it becomes available to nearby residence wheelhouse? DETROIT ANNOUNCE THE CLOSURE OF ITS HAMTRAMCK location and which has been operating on Joseph Compo for the past three years. All stock is twenty five percent off until the last day and that's December twenty first. So that's coming up real soon. The the bicycle retail and repair shop will focus on. It's Detroit location. That's over by the riverfront. It's it's absolutely beautiful but I gotta say it's kind of sad to see this. I hate to see retail stores. Go and I hate to see bike shops go also we'll house Detroit sponsored bike parking DC FC mattress. I'm wondering if that will continue. I mean he did. I mean I know that the owner has been active even the community for a really long time and I mean things must have not been working out for this thing to to close in the western suburb of Dearborn. Beaumont has broken ground in a new forty million dollar mental health facility. The plan is for it to open in mid twenty twenty according to press materials Beaumont and universal health services will have a one hundred fifty bed had one hundred thousand square foot facility across from the existing hospital on Rotunda drive. Mental health is an important and growing issue in Michigan suicide rates in the state of Michigan in had gone up about thirty three percent since nineteen ninety nine and one in five Americans deal with mental health issues. Lakeside Mall in Sterling Heights has been acquired by new owners owners who planned to eventually add retail and office space to the hundred Acre site and that is up in mccomb county quite a bit away from downtown. But it's interesting since Malls Randy are. They still thing man. I don't know if you need a mall for the Plethora of shopping experiences. I like that word. Plethora is a good one but I like the idea of a space where you can go and spend a day kind of like a destination venue. There's definitely like a need for that and I actually met somebody the other month that actually works at the the old fairlane mall. It's actually like it's still a mall in part but there's also a huge chunk of it that's apparently Ford Office space. Oh Wow that's a good use for the space I guess since Shops chops are leaving well. And there's lots of parking and all of that kind of stuff. Yeah I wonder what will happen out there you know McCone county is definitely growing and the farther out you get. There's there's definitely a lot of investment happening. I wonder like kind of recycling up cycling. The space is a good idea. I wonder if they'll put it in an observation tower for the Golden Bowl. This this is Kinda neat as it's right in my neighborhood the funky for no Arthur has been named one of America's Best Art Fairs by art fair calendar Dot Com based on voting by patrons collectors organizers and artists. Wow there's a lot of F in that story but I'm glad to see ferndale getting some plots. You know speaking of places with Fox to apparently ripped on Ferndale for not having having enough parking earlier this week and Because I guess they went to Valentine for some company Party and they were just very upset about this. There's a private lot right next door. Or there's a municipal lot behind that private lot and their street parking so I don't know did they not want to walk the extra fifty steps. According to hometown town life dot Com. The Novi Planning Commission has postponed a rezoning decision. I cur Novi a fifty million dollar mixed use development featuring Asian restaurants. It's as well as apartments with a Japanese garden. The postponement is due to several questions about the project that would require rezoning along Grand River and eleven mile east. TOWNE centre drive They keep talking about this when that might happen and might not happen. One of the things I've read in the notes about this and stories over time is that they really want to make this a flutie destination and randy. If there are foodies in the world I know that you are one of them What do you think the idea of a foodie destination especially out somewhere in Novy? That's I mean it's it's definitely like a a distance away it would have to be one heck of a restaurant to get me to go all the way to Novi two weekends ago. A friend had to twist. It's my arm to get me to go to Farmington hills. Well all right. But here's the thing was that place in Farmington hills worth the drive. Yeah we went to India flavors and it was amazing.

"I know there's peninsula in and a Domino Indiana but like not a lunch crowd but like what. If you actually like geared it up and said we're going to make this a fun place to be especially really during the warmer months to be on the riverfront. I mean but that gets my whole thing that I believe the riverfront in general is underused. Like it'd be amazing. Still really with the river walk okay. So here's my thought on that between General Motors Renton and then you go over to like the Cullen Carousel and all that you have a sea of terrible surface parking lots true and to me. Why aren't there street vendors? Why aren't there things like activation in between? Why don't we just get rid of that surface parking? Why don't why doesn't somebody like build some kind of Parking structure to get that stuff out of the way whether it's whether it's businesses on the riverfront whether it's a mix of residential things like that like let's bring that space back act because like the worst use possible is surface parking lots. I know people park but put them in garages. I agree but I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure that the surface offers parking lots are used by the wrens primary tenant which. I'm not sure if you're aware but it's a car. Companies called General Motors Garage. Thank you build a garage. They could build a garage watch. And here's the deal. They could put retail on the bottom that could put a garage in the middle and residential up top. They can actually like join the twentieth century. They could for sure and I agree. I mean there are some there are still a lot more potential than what is realized with the river walk. I think but yeah all right. Big News for Detroit. Pizza lovers buddies is is open in downtown Detroit. I know span you and I went and checked it out. You were actually pretty happy with the Pizza Devon. You've been there too now that it's been open we have been since it's open. What's the what's and you randy? What's guys now that it's open? What's the story officially opened Wednesday? I was there Monday night before. Okay but you got to get service party there so I mean I think it's kind of what you said. I think we all know buddies so the question was going to be. You know kind of food be consistent is buddies buddies is the you know can keep that quality. I think the answer is yes. I mean. They've done a really good job of keeping the same consistency. The slice of pizza that you'll have at the downtown was is the same kind tasted in veal is the one you have in Detroit Dearborn or wherever else so I think did a really good job big space. So you've got a lot of room got a bar there The location is fantastic. Although although that location has had some issues Places in that specific location there under the broader tower in the Madison. The location on its face is really good so I would imagine. We'll do a great job. Picking up the lion's crowd and tigers crowd. They're gonNA mop it up. I think sports balls going on and I think it's great that they're doing like fast service. Quick Service Window. Yeah I get. What like whether? It's the office crowd or the running to the game. Crowd being able to walk up and just grab a slice and pop or something. Sounds absolutely perfect now. I was impressed the cocktail menu because I actually had a whole page of classic cocktails. That was that was a welcome speaking of cocktails. I'd just like to interject that My my old fashioned here the the manual old fashioned as the hammer and nail. It has a slightly. You know. It's their own take on the classic Old School old fashioned is very tasty as is my white Russian. It is amazing. There's a nitro white Russian nine Jewish and absolutely right okay so there is a place that I have not visited you too but our man about town knows what's going on. Let's Talk Leyla. Let's let's do it because I heard so many good things I was drinking. In Grosse Ross Point Park and people were talking about Layla and that tells me like if your point par. Well you know what I mean when I when I'm drinking in places that are off the beaten path although I do like drinking. In Grosse Pointe like which it sounds crazy but sometimes some great bars over there when I hear it like all over the place I heard about it in Dearborn. Everyone's talking about Layla. Well I would say it definitely fits where it's at. So capital. Park is becoming quite a tourist destination. I don't say that in a derogatory way. I say that as you know. Oh it's great. There's people from all over the Metro area coming to Capitol Park to either. You know get coffee at Desert Oasis or get steak at prime improper or get pastries canal. which has been doing a credible business? So Leyla is upscale Mediterranean restaurant. It does everything really well. It's it is upscale. The design is incredible. Incredible My only knock on it would be as a dearborn night. Are you know for most of my life from Dearborn. I've had I've had ED better Middle Eastern food for half the price. Wow It is fire. It is what it is. I mean I don't think many people are gonNA argue at that Middle Eastern more than Mediterranean Middle Eastern on the Metro area. So I you know when we went we had some different dips obamacare news which is very good. The Hamas was very good You know ten twelve dollars a plate go dearborn for five bucks butter. You know. You're you're paying for you are and that's my. That's my point is you're paying for the ambiance paying for being a capital park you're paying for being in the middle title of downtown Detroit but you can go down Warren Avenue and they're swarming is going to be true we go to better There aren't that many I mean. There's an Anita's kitchen downtown. Oh now but there's not a whole lot yet of Middle Eastern food to be had downtown. No there isn't but and this is on the premed so they're coming in juryman. There's probably still an opportunity for for someone to come in on the more approachable end of of the Mediterranean but it's fantastic does or a Bucharest which is no longer even more approachable than Anita's because their their bowls are like fifteen in bucks but I would say that they also have a full cocktail menu. which was really good? Their cocktails are really good. My like recommend Devon recommendation for that would be forgoing for drinks in APPs. It's absolutely fantastic and drinks Not a common thing to be founded Most Middle Eastern places in around town. especially down in Dearborn you know. Yeah exactly and they they do a really good job of actually incorporating some kind of Middle Eastern elements into the drink so I think one of the drinks ahead like date syrup. ooh with With whiskey and some of the different Randy's on that very much. So you mentioned Dearborn. I want to stay there for a second and I know that we actually have a deeper engagement about longboard coming up but you know. Oh that's made some waves over there in downtown airborne needs some waves on C. Pun intended. Yeah ooh Yeah Long Great. I mean we've all been there at this point I think it's it's really cool. The way I kind of describe it as like it's type of place that would open up in Detroit but as opening up in Dearborn just great to see it places like that making it out to the suburbs for sure from the people that brought you jolly Pumpkin. It's their take on kind of Hawaiian Pacific Pacific island style so a little bit of Tiki. Little Bit of Pizza Right. Would you say it's longer feature coming out later. I kind of describe it as like an Honorary Tiki. Yeah I would say that. And that's big words coming from you because you are a Tiki fan so Bucharest. I is continuing to build their empire as well into the suburbs. And so I just gotTa say like again. That's another thing that I feel like. It's really approachable. It something that just like taking off. It's like there's this love for Bucharest that is I think unparalleled for people who've had it. Yeah I mean you can't beat it there. There can't be enough. Bucharest is at this point. I mean they've got A. It's almost like I think about you know in the chick-fil-a world or whatever it is we're it's just they've got this formula down they do Schwimmer's as good as anybody that can mass produce reduce them the dollars five dollars which is crazy and if you don't if you're not into warm I love the Nikki Salad it's absolutely great and two two observations from me on on Bucharest ones actually not related to Bucharest. But shout out to their breakfast. Wrap Sandwich with I didn't know they had at least deliver. Nori location does Scrambled eggs. French fries is and then like the kind of Greek Salad type Fillings with Tomato Fateh cucumber and onion. It's really really good. But the other thing I was going to ask random you might know. Balkan House opening in Ferndale is not open yet. It is yeah yeah that's a Hamtramck `assises sece's nation is running out. It's something that just like caught fire and just went up but I'm really glad to see to see these independent places like get traction and all of that all.

"Ground that's believed to contain uranium has collapsed into the Detroit River. We talked to the reporter that broke the story. Dave Bad Ajello from the Windsor is our star and then around of what to know where to go around town on Today's Daily Detroit. It's Thursday December Fifth Twenty nineteen. I'm Jason Jason. Well let's dive right in at some point over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend a portion of riverbank near Fort Wayne collapse into the Detroit River. That riverbank is believed to contain material. Leftover from the Manhattan project. If you remember that was the national effort to create the atomic bomb during World War Two and the company on that land extruded uranium rods into the nineteen fifties for nuclear development to talk about it as Dave Bad. Ajello from the Windsor Star. Dave Dave what exactly happened over there near Fort Wayne. Oh for my understanding from all the information I received is that there was Detroit bulk storage just a company and they at least property there The property is not on by Maroon. A lot of people seem to think it is but it's owned by a grand rapids company called Erickson Group so Detroit's bookstores moved in there on July. They've been struggling with called aggregate or gravel on the site since that time The night before is learning today the night before Thanksgiving they had quite a sizeable pile on the property From ship that just dropped it off the pro that night there was a lot of rainfall the rivers high as it is according to the owner of the gravel stored about one hundred feet from the shore and then the sure started to give away It broke out into the water. And all of the aggregate gravel. Yeah that was being stored near the show has sure has fallen into the river gravel could contain contaminants right because this used to be Old Revere Copper Site. Yeah it's not the actual gravel that would be contaminated but it's the ground itself used to be the former revere copper site which which people As I'm learning just yesterday myself. That's eight revere. Copper was involved in what's known as the Manhattan Project Race to build the first atomic bon the company back in the nineteen forties was subcontracted to be part of that and they constructed. What's known as uranium rods They started that in the forties and continue to construct uranium rods well into the nineteen mid mid nineteen fifties Before they stopped likely for safety reasons the property was abandoned in the eighties. So nobody there's been soil checks but nothing really of any recent time Dating back to perhaps the nineties was the most recent check. But anytime you're dealing with uranium radium like chance. It was in the soil which might have been fine but now the soil broken away and into the river. It's kind of scary if you think about it because I I mean. I don't think we think about these things in Detroit per se. You know because especially I think. A lot of people don't realize that we have connections to the Manhattan project. I don't think I certainly only didn't and I don't think many people would be aware that given their history of time or the passage of time But here's a company that was in Detroit involved in developmentally. Oh Yeah Tomic. Bomb played a role in producing parts for the bomb For quite a lengthy period of time but unfortunately production now maybe causing initiative giving up the shores breaking away here into the river. So do you have any idea of what's next or what to look forward to in this saga while everybody's is not everybody's just kinda doing right now and they're all on the phone today to try to figure out a strategy how to deal with this Detroit bookstores. It's a company involved here. I spoke with the owner and I don't think he really grasp himself the history of the site. He just. He's in the gravel business and didn't seem to have a strong hold on the history in what was actually in the ground beneath him. He's learning that today. Eagle as your environmental agency is known as on the phone trying to get investigators to the site and develop a strategy in terms of how to deal one what the ground broken and the river washing up on it to deal with the aggregate that's fallen into the river. And what how big of a problem all of this is. The site has been listed by the Wall Street Journal. As one of America's forgotten nuclear wastelands. The danger here is what's in the ground that we've talked talked about but also the sediment nearby as the Detroit River is bottom has a variety of chemicals leftover from industry like Mercury and. PCB's left alone and in place. It's not as much of a danger but disturb it and disperse it and it could be a different story in fact this particular site was being considered for the new Gordie Howe Bridge but but environmental concerns. Put the brakes on that idea. And here's the Cherry on top. According to maps you were able to find downriver from the site are a couple of water intakes one at Wine Ryan Dot and another near fighting island. We'll keep an eye on the story and you can follow Dave from the star on twitter at Dave Jello and that's with two TS and two wells. There's a new development in the case of the slain Detroit police officer Rashid. McLean if you remember. He was killed on November twentieth and his partner Philippe Platoon whom beasts was wounded in leg. twenty-eight-year-old John Parks was arraigned Thursday in thirty-six District Court on Sixteen felony charges included. The bucket is first degree premeditated murder he will await trial in the Wayne. County jail with no bond with preceding scheduled to start December nineteenth layoffs with the opportunity to work other plants have been made at the Detroit Hamtramck GM facility as it retools for new electric products. Eight hundred and fourteen hourly and salaried read employees will be affected and the lace will begin at the end of February twenty twenty more than seven hundred fifty workers are covered by the UAW and have bumping rights to other plants per collective bargaining agreement. But those rights do not extend to the retooled plant. DETROIT HAMTRAMCK will build all electric trucks vans though there isn't a specific product design yet. GM says that there will be about two thousand two hundred twenty five jobs there after the three billion dollar investment is done related is an announcement of a joint venture with LG. Oh Gee Kim to put two point three billion bucks into a new electric battery plant in Lordstown Ohio General Motors in multiple interviews says that the company is preparing for an all all electric future. There's something that I saw that I find kind of interesting mostly because of the timing. If you remember on yesterday's show we talked about buddies opening and kid rock pulling out of his licensing deal at little. CAESARS arena. The Metro Times is now reporting that kid rock announcement came the same day as a racial racial discrimination lawsuit by a former black bartender was settled for an undisclosed sum. According to the suit she alleged she was fired for wearing an Afro. Throw the restaurant also. It was licensed by rock is operated by Delaware north. The National Food Service Company that runs many of the concepts in the arena. The News Center sides largest residential project in years opened their doors Thursday. The boulevard is a six story three hundred and fifty six thousand square foot mixed use development at Third Avenue and West Grand Boulevard in the city. That's on the next block from the Fisher building. They're going to be retail spots like orange theory fitness beyond juice. Eh Comerica Bank branch of stairs. There will be two hundred and thirty one studio one and two bedroom apartments that range in size from just over five hundred square feet to more more than eleven hundred square feet and twenty percent of the units will be affordable housing for those making eighty percent of the average median income in the region the total price tag on the development including a three hundred and thirty space. Parking structure is said to be sixty million dollars in the suburbs. The Wilcox Mill in Plymouth and the Newburgh Burgh mill site in Livonia. Just took a big step toward being redeveloped. The Wayne County Commission approved the sale of the properties for a total of seven hundred sixty five thousand dollars and approved an agreement to acquire nearly seven acres and Westland to add to Hines Park. The sold properties will be part of the mill. Run Place Making project. So so what are the plan for these Wilcox Mill was bought by Milan rooch and that was created by well known local artist. Tony Roco and the art foundation. They planned to rehab the building into to an art education space and construct a publicly accessible inner child sculpture garden that displays three-dimensional realizations of children's drawings. Look developer. Richard Cox will renovate the NEWBURGH mill into a distillery with retail space and park that shaped like a spiral inspired by the automotive parts. Once made on the site Cox has a track record including turning the Northville mill into modern office space. He also purchased Phoenix Millan Plymouth Township and has turning that property into an event event facility with public green spaces. The county will get first right of refusal under the deal to repurchase the properties if the new owners assigned to ever sell them in the future. And and there's a bit of history to these buildings and Land Wilcox in newburgh mills as well as the Phoenix Mill in Nankin mills were part of the Ford Village Industries Network of part factories located along the Middle Rouge River. They were deeded to the county by Ford Motor Company in Nineteen Forty eight Nankin mills remains with Wayne County Johny. It houses. The parks divisions offices and an Interpretive Center it just went through an eight hundred thousand dollar Rehab and before I let you go I wanted to give give you the heads up that the Detroit urban craft fair is this weekend at the Masonic Temple.

"And I'm Jerry States we've got a slew of stories to catch up on headlines including seventeen thousand right here in Michigan alone the UAW said Sunday that GM rebuffed its proposal and intern offered a proposal the union had previously rejected there's also report from W. Xyz that GM has backed off on its proposals to build a new electric pickup truck at the Detroit Hamtramck plant and build a new battery plant near Lordstown Ohio where it shutting down a vehicle assembly plant if true that could mean that both plants would be shuttered and the latest is that all three Detroit automakers are apparently using the national joint training centers as bargaining chips with the UAW the Detroit news reports that the UAW training centers funded by both GM and Fiat Chrysler could be restructured with higher financial controls by the automakers and lower structural costs the free purports that GM may even want to close its joint training center on the riverfront and sell the building and its property to a private owner those training centers have figured large in the ongoing federal investigation into embezzlement at the UAW the stalemate idling fifty five facilities is likely to drag on as both sides have major issues they can't seem to give ground on you know there's a lot on this tables fan electric vehicles are coming and yeah they're gonNA need far fewer components fewer workers to put those together and plus there's a huge cost that I mean all automakers are facing to develop electric vehicles technology you know to build new vehicle platforms retool plants and everything I mean enormous cost and then also you know factoring autonomous vehicles which are a little farther now a little more farfetched but they're coming in everybody's you know working on them and wants to nobody wants to be late to that so do you think anybody has a good handle on the win Win are these electric and then autonomous vehicles coming or is it still a guessing game well electric vehicles are very much here already I mean they're still very small part of the overall market in the United States although there larger overseas like in European countries and China and stuff but you know that that technology will certainly advance so I think we're starting to see some advances in battery driving range and things like that autonomous vehicles is a little bit more of a crapshoot I think there's been a lot of optimism stick talk overly optimistic talk from automakers but I think most experts agree that it's a long ways out yet before before autonomous vehicles is is ready ready for primetime in the meantime for GM one of the few areas they can actually control costs and a global integrated supply chain is Labor labor according to the Center for automotive research run sixty three dollars an hour at GM sixty one bucks an hour at Ford fifty five bucks an hour at FCA and non unionized labor costs nationally range about fifty dollars an hour and so in the highly competitive auto industry this is pushing GM to us more often factories and temporary workers and its rivals and to be cleared the those figures include a healthcare benefits which should drive up those costs and this isn't workers Tom Sixty one dollars an hour no and in fact healthcare is one of the issues that the two sides are arguing over on the union side the U. a. w. made major concessions during the last contract and feel they need to get at least some of those back the UAW pays a very low percentage of their healthcare cost compared to other American workers and we're talking single digit percentages here and that's another area where GM would probably like to get some savings and the W. wants more of those temporary workers to become permanent to make this even more complicated than it already is lurking in the shadows is an active federal invest negation of union officials and plus there's the whole ongoing economic impact of the strike which is now in its fourth week the Detroit news reports that again seventeen thousand uaw workers in Michigan are involved in the strike against gem and that as of the end of September there were thirty five hundred unemployment claims from people who were laid off from companies that supplied parts GM autos players in other words you know meanwhile the UAW workers are on strike are now having to make do on just two hundred fifty dollars a week in take home pay which is you know try living on two hundred fifty a week I can't imagine that's easy you know I will point out here that General Motors reported two point four billion dollars in profit in just in the second quarter alone right they're going to release their third order results at the end of this month but they've already said that their third quarter deliveries were up six point three percent so sounds like things were good but you know what seeing the numbers of course you know I heard somewhere recently a comparison between starting auto workers in in the assembly plants mix somewhere close to sixteen to seventeen dollars an hour which somebody said somebody pointed out is pretty much the equivalent of what you get paid in an Amazon fulfillment warehouse because the floor are now is fifteen dollars an hour plus yes so you know it's it just sort of brings up like this troubling trend of jobs of the future you know I mean that's not a lot ought of money I mean fifteen dollars sixteen seventeen dollars an hour is not a lot of money Those jobs are stressful.

"The motor city supporters liked that created a walkable space for the public to enjoy with vendors food trucks and seating areas the city's neighborhoods dot org site now says that steps will be taken to ensure the plaza's permanency now that you. The news here are my two cents. I say this is I live in the city. I'm personally for this one. The most successful areas of Detroit are the ones that are walkable and welcoming and six lanes of traffic in four directions is the absolute reverse that one criticism awesome I would have is that they need to move that bus. Stop on Jefferson. Maybe about twenty or thirty feet. It's just awkward where it is now and another thing and this is one thing I wanted to note here to. I'd love to see the city do something with Hart Plaza. That's across the street there but I get the idea that it'd be a very expensive undertaking the bottom line. I think Detroit has made a lot of terrible design decisions in the last twenty years and we're only now starting to catch up with the rest of the nation and as the traffic well as someone who's lived in and been another cities. We don't really know what real traffic is. After all who are we building Detroit four residents or commuters and for what it's worth the city says that the plaza didn't impact traffic long term. I think it'd be better if we could build more garages so folks could park sooner and then get to their offices one of the things I've noticed that that's interesting about Detroit. Is that a lot of folks stay in their offices. They go to work and they don't go out for lunch. They don't go to dinner are afterward. Yes there are more people out there now especially with folks like the quicken family of companies and some younger folks but I think about our food contributor Randy Walker. He works a corporate day job. It is so hard for him to get his CO workers to come out of the building for lunch. It's it's crazy for good extra conversation around all of this checkout in the feed. I'll have lincoln the show notes to my conversation with bedrocks vice president of Parking Kevin Bob. It's good one the legendary bar and music venue where the white stripes started has burned the gold dollar on casts and I can see the back of it from our window here at the podcast. The traits studios had a fire last night. The place has a really interesting history for a time as a beer garden a drag club and as a music venue. It's currently owned by a company controlled. trolled by the illitch family and had been left derelict for quite a while as of this recording the fire is being investigated as being likely arson and there were no injuries. I just checked over. There and crews. Were boarding the place up so my drinking career was just getting started when this one was shut down and let's be honest my memories here a bit blurry. Here's hoping that this might spur some folks into action to do something however I'm skeptical because the track record of the owners my chips are going to be placed based on landscaped lit fenced parking lot until proven otherwise kid rock is selling his Detroit home. The Riverfront Mansion in the Joe Berry subdivision is on the market circuit for two point two million. The Detroit news reports that the six Thousand Square Foot House was purchased in twenty twelve and in that time the owner whose real name is Robert Richey has made a lot of renovations will link to it and the show notes joining me on the line from London as Murray Hillary welcome daily Detroit. Thanks for having me. You have a really interesting event coming up to the TRAE. Riverfront next month called the silent hike. Where did you come up with this idea? I had this idea because of the pianist and composer I also am deeply inspired by nature so I thought what could be more immersive and inspiring than having the whole audience moving through nature with me and with music carrying us all so that was the real inspiration for this experience. So how does this work it kind of reminds me of like a silent disco where if people don't know where you wear headphones but you can tune into different channels. It's it's really fun right so essentially we're like our own radio station moving. Moving through the park and <hes> we're going to be walking for about ninety minutes or so from one monument to the next taking the landscape while wearing these wireless headphones that as you mentioned sometimes they're used for dancing disco <hes> events but we're using them for a deeply reflective contemporary tive almost meditative experience the music that'll be playing will be original compositions and why piano recordings of mine that I created and also be guiding the experience through the microphone that you can only here in the headphones as well. That's layered over the music so that I can guide experience. It's not just where we're going but also a kind of guiding of the external and the internal landscape and that's really the idea behind the mind travel silent hike experience. Is it Kinda fuses together this internal Oh experience we have our own internal landscape and it connects it with our external landscape and so the to kind of come together well and you brought this experience as some pretty high profile places I mean Central Park Lincoln Center much which Paul to Museum of art you know it seems like there's a little bit of a higher purpose and in my background I saw that the mission is to move people to greater purpose through the in their lives through music. Can you kind of talk about that in that. It's a seems to be like a meditative experience. That's right in in some ways. It's it's like a modern take on walking meditation but we're taking it to a whole new level through the technology and the music and you know typically in our lives we're so busy where easily really distracted with our digital devices or smartphones social media. I mean you name it. We're we're distracting. Our attention is pulled in so many different directions through this experience. We create the space to connect within to kind. Love opened up creativity to really connect with our deepest selves so that we can show up in life and choose kind of what's important to us and we can show up and behave and be with the ones we love how we WANNA be rate of cells so when I talk about moving people purpose it's really about creating the space for them to reflect and connect to what's important to them and sometimes it's easy to lose sight of bats. Lose track of that in our busy lives so that that's really the aspiration of this experience. So why did you bring this to Detroit yeah so I've been taking this from city to city country to country. I'm actually speaking to you now from London where we'll be doing it this evening here at <hes> in Kensington in gardens <hes> we were in Berlin yesterday Paris two days ago and really this has become a universal experience that no matter where I take it no matter what country what background what ethnicity what religion what culture the experience resonates in the same way because this experiences about creating that soundtrack to the human story and beneath all are perceived differences. I believe there live a common the thread a common human experience common human story and so I said you know what I wanNA. Take this from coast to coast. This is not just about Los Angeles. This is not just about New York. This is about every city in between so I'm I'm getting in my van and I'm driving from New York all the way to the West Coast and we're GonNa hit over twenty cities along the way and you know we chose Detroit along with other incredible cities in the Midwest and the south to bring it to places. Is that might not ordinarily have an experience like this as easily as you know accessible especially because what I do doesn't exist. No I really WANNA bring it to new places and Detroit specifically has had it history with difficult times but now there's a a lot of exciting things happening there and it's very encouraging to see but of course there's still a long way to go so I would love to be a small part if I can of the solution and brings some magic to that incredible city so let's talk about when that Magic's happening I understand it's <hes> coming August sixth. That's right yes. We'll be there and it'll be in the evening or people have to do is show up. They get the headphones <hes> when they do. It's a free experience because we really WanNa make it fully accessible to everyone in the community unity and so you just have to sign up and we reserve the headphones for you well. It sounds like something that I'm going to have to do on my birthday because actually that is my actual birthday. I'm also in August a little later in the month but <hes> it's a it's a great month. You'll be alive right absolutely absolutely whoa Mary thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us out of your busy schedule and <hes> folks be sure to check out this experience. We'll have a link to the show notes and all of that. Thank you for stopping by daily Detroit. Thank you for having me have a great day and before I let you go. I wanted to tell you about free ice cream because free ice cream and well. It's the city of Detroit's birthday tomorrow on Wednesday Hudsonville ice cream will be celebrating in campus Martius Park. If you want some get it tomorrow tomorrow Wednesday the twenty fourth just reminding folks in case you're listening to this later around lunchtime from eleven thirty in the morning to one thirty pm and that's going to do it for today's show. Oh if you like what we're doing tell a friend about us.

"A piece of Detroit real estate news that made us say, holy crap. There's a penthouse loft apartment in mid-town. That's on the market for a cool one point four million dollars. It's in the Willy's overland, loft building on Willis street, right next door to the original Avalon, bakery, and coffee, shop, the free says the loft is actually two units combined into one on the building's fifth and sixth floors, the specs on this. When are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms nearly twenty seven hundred square feet plus another fifteen hundred for the terrace, which offers views of downtown, Detroit, and the ambassador bridge. It's got a custom built steel staircase. A two story main space with Florida ceiling windows and a galley kitchen finished in walnut. Willie's lofts is housed inside a former dealership for the Willy's overland an early four hundred Jeep that was built and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the conversion to residential loss was completed about a decade ago with the addition of two stories. Not included in that list. Price is a four hundred seventy five dollar monthly condo fee will link to the free story on daily Detroit dot com. From the high demand for a million dollar, plus Lofton midtown to a new study that shows people who rent in metro-detroit are looking to leave town apartment list dot com has new data. That shows that people who are renting in our region are the second most likely in the nation to search to leave the area fifty percent of searches for housing by people in metro Detroit are for places outside of the region. Demand is very uneven after all in metro Detroit, some areas, usually the walkable more urban places like greater downtown Detroit. What you can't seem to build enough places to serve the demand, and there are waiting lists. The top cities people in metro Detroit, are looking to leave to Cleveland Cincinnati and Grand Rapids. I thought it was interesting to put these two stories together spend because actually I've, I've toured those Willy's overland lofts spaces before they're absolutely beautiful. But there's been a lot that has been sitting on the market until recently, and then it just starts starts to move, but they are beautiful spaces. And then you put. That right next to some stats like this, where it's like, really positive about Detroit, but the region, there's a lot of people can leave. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean I would love to see, you know, deeper drill down into that. But I think, you know, you're right that people, you know, we're, we're seeing really hot rental markets are places like Ferndale down here in midtown in Detroit. But, you know, you'd suspect out in the suburbs, you know, rental apartment buildings and stuff like that, that, that don't have any kind of walkable amenities or any, you know, access to a nearby downtown. I think people are, you know, you know, look, younger people don't wanna live in those in those kind of areas, we keep reading about that over and over again. It's there's no secret, well, and the other thing, I think leaders and this is a stat I think they need to grab onto to really embrace this change is that forty three percent of families now rent their homes across America that isn't just like a Detroit thing that's a national change. In fact, more people are renting now than in the last fifty

"Recycle had some of Charles Brady kings parts on it and didn't. Henry Ford work at a ship, doc, I think, on the Detroit river there he did he worked for Detroit shipping works. And then he also was a engineer for Detroit, at what would be Detroit Addison. But no, he was. He was a very well skilled in, he came from a farm that his family owned, and in Dearborn, and they were quite quite prosperous and the parents allowed, Henry to tinker around with the farm equipment, and he would fix everything so that he was doing that at a young age, one of the themes that I notice here, you talked about a lot of different industries, reinvention is thing that Detroit did a lot of in those first in those first two hundred years just kind of the range of your book, right? 'cause I understand your book kind of goes from the founding of the city in the sixteen hundreds alway there up to nineteen hundred. Correct. So do you think the Detroit's kind of kept that reinvention spirit? Do are there things we could learn from our past to help us go forward. I think the one lesson that we learned the hard way was that because. As we had such demand when the auto industry hit and factories to other factories that were building farm equipment and things they would put them out into new areas where there weren't residents, but residents would quickly build homes around those plants because they had to walk to work. They didn't have cars streetcars in those days. And, and so then when the next plant opened the, the KEPCO and further out in further out in further out than the auto industry hits, and it keeps going further out. And then you basically Detroit was asked to double its production to be the arsenal of democracy, during World War Two so you basically had a double your production. If you look at why the take command plant is based in war, and it was because there was no more room left, there were no Greenfield's left in, in Detroit. Then after the war half the demand goes away, and you've got all these factories and people like you know, they'll wanna live next to an empty factory, especially with children. And so. So that's when the real estate market took off in the suburbs. It was long before the sixty seven riots it started about nineteen fifty two and that's common misnomer, that you see out there. There were a lot of complex factors. Some of the things dealing with federal policy people, not wanting be next to factories. We really had really slapdash zoning in those days, if you go back to some of the houses, and I'm not talking about the stately neighborhoods like Indian village. But I've been on some cruise with the folks over in John. Georgia's folks, I was with the cruise with John Jirgas Georgia's folks over in old Redford, and going into those stick, stick homes, that are literally six hundred square feet and I had been reading that for a good amount of time. People were sleeping in shifts in these places because we didn't build apartment buildings anything that we built all these little tiny homes that didn't stand the test of time. Yeah. I mean just look around us amid tone of these apartment buildings that have become so popular those were teeming with people in the fifties and sixties nineteen fifties nineteen sixties, and then you see those old historic photos of, you know. Thousands of people on the streets of Detroit, and the eighteen hundreds well, the reason for that is they didn't have anywhere else to go. You did all your shopping there unless you were on a farm or something, you pretty much had to be downtown or you know in one of those combs by factory. So let's go back in the time machine to where your books at if there was kind of a decade or a year, if you could hop in maybe into the DeLorean of, you know, back to the future, or something like that, and show up anywhere in your book in Detroit's history where would you land? Well, I would, I would think the eighteen eighty S eighteen ninety it's really when the city's really got heavily industrialized in. We could build anything in lots of great characters that, that timeframe that were making a name for themselves. You know, our L poll and Ellen scripts from what was today's the Detroit News, you know, Fred Sanders and stroz and all those. People that we know, throw highlighted in the book, I think the most important, one of the most is important in revealing stories through the research that I did was a gentleman who owned a hotel at state and Woodward by the name of Seymour, Finney called Fini's hotel in. He was started operating the early eighteen forties, soon, after he was starting to get abounding, hunters up of people, you know, slave owners looking for the slaves that were trying to escape through the underground railroad, obviously, we were major trail in that at the same time in capital park, today's capital, part Seymour Finney owned a barn in a tavern. So the time for years, he was renting rooms to these bounty, hunters. And then he was hiding slaves in that barn in no one knew what was going on in the African Americans that he helped escape into Windsor in Canada. Many of them took his last name as thank you for what he. Did to support the underground railroad. That is a crazy story and really interesting. So there are a lot of books about to trae history out there. I looked I mean I've read some parts of it. I think it's really interesting and unique for you kind of what drew you to throw your hat in the ring and put this one out there. Well, there is no book out there that really revealed how the city was built, you know, when did natural gas come in as an energy source in how did that affect how buildings were built, same thing with, you know, the telephone telegraph, these modern stoves it just transformed life in, in. It seemed like every little thing that, that came in as a positive the citizenry were just blown away and during the timeframe of the book starting in eighteen seventeen was the first presidential visit and the town went crazy. They had no pre- notice, because, you know, there's no like real big newspapers or you know, there's no Twitter Twitter. So the call would go out and people would just consume themselves in entertaining, the president, his in the first lady in the entourage, that came, and they typically would stay three or four days. And so. Oh, it was, you know, people like James Monroe president, James Monroe. And some of the others that was just Detroit loves a party in and they've been doing it along longtime. As reading about the mardi gras celebrations, actually was doing some research on a project. And one of the things I realize I didn't realize that we would actually do mardi gras pancakes, here. Speaking of partying around here, I I'd love to bring back the mardi gras pancake, I iris parade, Saint Patrick's Day parade was in. In eighteen o eight if he can believe it because of the Irish initially came to the east coast, but they're being persecuted by some of the other religious groups, but French France being Catholic and Irish largely Catholic, however they could get here, this was like this celebrated frontier town for them. So that was the first wave of immigrants was the Irish. Well, RJ? I really appreciate you coming by the studio. How can people get a hold of this book easiest way is momentum books dot com. Will also be on Amazon, but momentum books is the best way and then we'll be an area stores gift shops. Gourmet markets places like that anywhere you can buy a magazine a book while folks, be sure to pick yourself up a copy of Detroit engine of America are taking again. Thank you.

"Online. P I N G R W Detroit. Pinger Detroit dot com. And then we're also Easter market every Saturday, I understand that you guys have established some sales goals and everything for this year. Can you talk a little bit about that? Sure. So the biggest thing is we have a lot of men and women who want to work. We don't have the man for to bring on an employee. So the goal is look like being profitable. Like, we have our loans have gotten very from where they were we have a very small amount of cash to work with so really being officiant our processes, we want to be able to hire five more people in the next year to do of variety of different elements were I can't share it now. But there's some really exciting things in. It comes to some of the we're Vance minutes, we want to be participating in and some other kind of collaborations that we're looking at. So that's kind of some of the growth goals is like growth in impacts growth in product offerings. So people waiting for the governor shoes for a long time. We're real excited unveil those or really excited offer some other products people waiting for. And then it looks like just bringing the money that's necessary. To sustain the current team and to grow that team. What's your pitch to somebody? Who says, you know? Wow. These are nice shoes. But you know, they're expensive. I mean, the the mayor shoes I think are over three hundred dollars. Right. So I mean, why are they worth it? I guess there's two pieces to the one is if the next time you bought a pair of steiger's you buying those that would look really good. And last for the next fifteen years, they'll be worth, you know, if you could rissoli your sneakers, and then you the fact that you knew they are handmade by hands of US veterans or Detroiters. And then the leather was also supporting the Detroit auto industry. So those three elements coupled with the fact that sixty five percent of the cost is just labor. So that you're paying a living wage someone's making thirteen to twenty dollars an hour handcrafting these products than the majority of all the hardware is American made. So you're supporting the the rivets and eyelets you come from Louisiana. We've got the shoelaces are coming from Brooklyn, New York, the leathers destroy like. All the aspects are all done with a lot of intention -ality. So you're not just buying a an expensive pair that's marked up. It's ex direct to customer. We don't currently have the retail locations for sneakers because right now it's much the cost to make it. And then there's a small margin on top. Jaren. I know a little bit about the struggles of trying to launch, you know, your own business and get it to fly and everything. I mean, you're you're describing, you know, it's difficult. You're not drawing the paycheck. You're you're bartending once week and everything, but I mean, are you optimistic that this you're in it for the long haul and you feel good about this hundred percent every day? I start off the day visiting what we're going to create and what the impact is that we're able to create. So I'm a higher percent optimistic. I believe my entire being that what we're able to accomplish he's going to be hundreds of jobs across the country. But starting in Detroit, Michigan that are living wage jobs that are worker owned which means that equity is the core of what we do that. Well, being as maximizing all. Frans that we're going to be able to Donnelly produce things that are a little bit of a more accessible price point as we grow and have more equipment and have more scale. But then we also producing things that people need that are sustainable that have a closed loop cycle. So that we don't have to throw stuff away whereas way we create things that last that are made with care that are supporting people like Nate another makers on our team. So that we can all together thrive, and we can create together Detroit that actually works for Detroiters that makes her neighborhoods stronger and accent maximize. Being. All right friends.
