"From pure Michigan before you know what? We're gonna be out there on our skis. And I know for a lot of people, they're thinking, oh no, I don't want to talk about snow. Well, you know, I've said it before. I love winter. The thing about Michigan is we are a four season state. We should celebrate that. We should actually grab a hold of every season and make the most of it. In winter, you know, it has to be a really important part of that. So let's try this. If you're not into winter, which most people probably feel that way. Try to just take a different approach to it this year. Would you please? And try to get out there. And I have a good place for you to go to get into the enjoying snow season. We're going to head over to cross country ski headquarters. This is up in Ross common, I think. And let's bring in Mariah fry. Ross comment, is that correct, Mariah? Yes, so Ross common Higgins Lake is really we're just on the east side of Higgins like and in a snow belt. We are kind of the furthest south place in Michigan that gets reliable snow. So very accessible to the larger metropolitan areas, a lot of our clients outcomes from greater Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing those areas because we are definitely still northern Michigan, but very accessible from the major highways. Well, and I love stopping at cross country ski headquarters, and I will be doing that very soon. I need new cross country skis, mine are getting a little long in the tooth. And I need to consider that. And I highly recommend people consider cross country ski headquarters. I'll tell you this, Mariah, I've looked into this. You guys offer really good deals and you certainly know the product. And I love the fact that people can come up there, they can talk to you and your team, and you will give them good advice on the type of product that we should be considering. Well, absolutely. Our we are in the business of making sure people can have a good time outside in the winter time. And having a good time on cross country ski is there's two really important things. One is that you're in the right equipment. And it's not just that you're in the equipment doesn't have to be a high price point ski or something really fancy. It just needs to be a ski that is stable that gives you a lot of control and oftentimes those skis, which we would consider recreational touring ski equipment. It's not that expensive. When we specialize in ski packages, so we put skis and boots and poles and bindings together that make sense for certain kinds of terrain, whether you're going to be on a groomed ski trail or if you're going to be making your own trails out in the Woods or skiing on a frozen Lake. There's different skis for kind of each of those each of those different kinds of terrain. And some skis that can do all the terrains very well. And so it's important to go to a shop like ours where we have a whole staff of ski experts who know these various skis, different kinds of SKUs, the different boots, making sure that the boots can match with the bindings. And above all else, making sure you get in the right size equipment. Yeah. I can't tell you how many times people will come in holding some skis that they picked up at a garage sale and say, I just don't really like cross country skiing that much because it's not very fun. And we'll look at the skis and it'll be like someone who's 6 foot two and the skis are designed for someone who's really light and really short. And so it's really important to get into the right size equipment, which is our specialty. And then the second piece to that is instruction. So it's making sure that when you step onto the snow, that first time, first of all, you know how to get into the bindings. How to wear the polls correctly. And then the first thing we teach in our ski lessons is how to get up from a fall because I'll tell you what, nothing turns people off to cross country seeing like falling and then not knowing how to get up. Yeah. I can't fall as I used to. Actually last winter I took a little fall just heading back to the car. I was we were all done and oh no. And then boom took one of those backwards falls onto the skis, and that kind of stings for a minute takes the air out of you. And you know, it's interesting. The skis that I have aren't all that old, but because I am not as good at cross country skiing as I once was, I'm getting older. I just need a different style skis. They're too long for me. They're just, they're just not right anymore. Well, totally. And what's great is that the every year there is new innovations and the technology of skis and things don't change vastly year to year, but slow incremental change. And the skis are just more stable than ever. And there's a couple of different skis now that run pretty short. So they're very maneuverable, super stable. And some ski is that have full metal edges. So just like you would see on the downhill ski, these are cross country skis that they have full steel edges. So they handle ice really well. They handle any kind of marginal trail surface really, really well. We have someone who was not even not even old at all. Someone who's in their mid 30s came into the shop and wanted to demo some of these metal edge touring skis, the Fisher spider 62s. And he took them out and he came back in and he said, for the past 5 years, I've been cross country skiing and this is the first time I ever felt like I was in control of my skis. Yeah. Yeah, it's important. And of course, there are the two different types of technique for cross country skiing. Do you have, and I'm sure you do, the types of skis for the traditionally in line, cross country skiing, and then for skate skiing as well. Oh, definitely, yes. Yes, definitely we have the classic skiing, which is what people also call traditional where you are kind of going back and forth more of like a walking or running motion with your legs and then the skate skiing, which is growing in popularity, definitely classic skiing is still more popular because it's you can do it anywhere whereas first skate skiing you need kind of that wide groomed skating lane. But it's very fun and it just offers a different way to enjoy the Woods and the winter trails when it's snowing
Prayers go on, sometimes out of sight, in high school football
"On this week's religion roundup, prayers go on, sometimes out of sight in high school football. In Jesus name, amen. Let's go. Pregame prayers have become a focal point after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled a Washington state public school coach how to write to prey on the football field. Since then, some speculated there would be more game day prayers. Confidence endurance. A recent AP North Pole shows a majority of American adults approve of the decision. In Michigan, football coaches like west bloomfield's Justin ivy found ways to make it voluntary. It was never a situation where we made anybody come and do it. We just did it. AP sports writer Larry lage says there was some pressure to increase the amount of prayer at games. One coach just outside of Detroit says several people in the community pushed him to use his platform and constitutional right to pray publicly, but Dearborn fordson high school coach fuad Saban says he chose to keep prayers behind closed doors to avoid potential anti Islamic jeers. I actually was flooded by calls and they were hoping that I would take advantage of the ruling and we would do our actual prayer out on the field. So but that's not the way we've operated forts and senior whiteout Hassan Chennai says his teammate support keeping their prayers in the locker room and away from the public. I think it's better private because I don't, you know, we don't know what everybody wants, but we're a team and we all agreed to this to the prayer and we have no problem with it. But we don't want to do it publicly because we don't know if people are comfortable with know what their opinions are about it. We just don't want anything, you know, any conflict with anybody else. High school junior Chris writes as the prayer strengthened the team's Bond. And it's okay to practice whatever religion you may practice when we all accept each other. It's kind of making it easier for us to be cohesive as a team. I'm Walter ratliff.

Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.
"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

Abdu Murray Describes His Religious Upbringing
"Raised in Detroit when you raised as an American growing up in Michigan, but in a solidly Shia home. Yeah, absolutely. So is she at home? And in the Detroit area, there's a very strong, very heavy Muslim population there as well. So that was around me, but we ended up growing up. I ended up growing up in a back then and not terribly diverse neighborhood. We were sort of the dollop of olive oil on the pot of rice as it were. But now you go now and it's wonderful that the diversity there's great and especially for the menu options. It's fantastic in that city, but I grew up thinking Islam is true, a very proud of that fact. And got myself educated in enough ways in which to propagate Islam. That's true. And then come back, Christianity, as false for a number of reasons. Now, I just want to say, because I think it's important for people to understand at least for me to understand, when somebody says, you know, I was raised in a Muslim home. I was raised in a Christian home. That might mean nothing. In other words, I was raised in a Greek Orthodox home. But it was really a Greek home. My mother was German. I always joke around if you raised by a Greek and a German, you're raised Greek. But the point is for a lot of people, their faith is mostly cultural. And I know many, many Muslims in New York that I mix with. They're not really serious about the Muslim faith. They identify as Muslim the way an Irish guy says, well, I'm Catholic, but I only go three times a year. So it's mainly a cultural thing. And they're not really taking the fates seriously. So I know, you know, cab drivers sometimes you get the impression. This guy is serious about his Muslim faith. Other times they start talking about their kids and whatever. And you get the impression that they're just technically Muslim in the way that a lot of people say, you know, I'm this from that. But it's kind of like a tribal identity versus an ideological theological identity, but so for you, even using both. Well, it was both, but you're saying that you were raised in a home that was serious about the Muslim faith. It wasn't just a cultural thing. Right.

Trump and His Republicans Are Already Claiming Vote Fraud
"By midday someone said Trump had already tweeted 6 times about vote fraud. I mean, he's just such a cancer on our country, you know?

This is the Trump lawyer. I expect to know who won by the middle of the night. Maybe very, very early Wednesday morning. If we don't, and if Democrats try to extend the vote, I think they're going to have a very, very hard time doing it with any level of credibility. In 2020, they were able to do it because they claimed COVID and they had this excuse which we all know was baloney because they had to go find more ballots and do all of their ballot harvesting.

"They need people with the income to be able to shop at their their store. So i mean. I think it's an fortunately or unfortunately comes a very kind of binary issue of look. You've gotta follow the numbers if you're a target and you put a you put a target and urban target in a place where it makes sense. Because you're going to get the the sales and the customers. They're the context. I want to add to this though. Is that an and listeners. Are going get annoyed this week. Because i'm gonna talk about columbus bit In a few different episodes share. I'm going to have a problem with this. But that's okay. I know you will but the reality is that there city. That's grown a hundred and eighty thousand people in the last twenty years and if we had that kind of grew with growth we would know how to handle it and it's a city that has a lot of things like detroit. It's still very car centric. It has working mass transit system. But it's all buses like. I looked at the city and went. We could do this year with the housing stack all those different things those opportunities. There's no reason we couldn't do this right. It wasn't like it was a glittering city on a hill like the parks at asphalt pathways. It wasn't it was nice but it was holy attainable. And i look at it. And i go you know density is going to be the name of the game when i was traveling around that city. What i realized was that you know their outer suburbs that we think about in mccomb county or whatever that would be the same distance as like royal oak. You know like you go to their downtown areas and you have some neighborhoods with seven eight thousand people you know in a tight little area whereas here it's spread out all over the place and now columbus is a bigger city and land area but it really made me realize we have to drive down to the neighborhood level and realize the different parts of the city are going to be developed in different ways and i don't think like the entire city turning around i hate to say this but i don't think that's a plausible or passable thing. I think it sounds great for politics. But i don't think every part of the city is gonna look shining and i don't think it's possible and i know that that sucks but i also think that there's going to be parts of the city that you know what maybe it's going to be urban farm for a while. Maybe it's going to be more of the suburban style development. Or you know you build up corridors. But we need to start really focusing things because everything being everywhere it doesn't. It spreads the resources so thin because we have so little money floating around in this region compared to other places in the country. Yeah i mean. Many people will find that a sobering hake air but it is a very much also in line with lot. Detroit future city does and they've done. They've done it. Just a massive amount of research and data gathering into this and into looking at repurposing reusing land in various ways consolidating people consolidating resources in within the city for a more Four kind of a more lean City and use zing spaces to their most unofficial.

"We're focusing on the announcement of a new target in mid town. Joining me. virtually help figure it out. We'll be devon o'reilly. This episode will sound a little bit different at plan. Do something different but with me coming in from out of town. Whatever we scrambled. We made it happen. Of course if you have feedback daily detroit. G mail dot com virtually unpacked. All of this target stuff devil riley. How are you jair good to be with you. We have an emergency session ring to do here because there is news. That is basically all over detroit. It's in any kind of post on social media or in the news on this broke this morning. We're going to get a target. And i end with a question mark. We i put a question mark there. But i'm going to make sure that we get this right. This is not the first target in detroit. There was won over by the belair center some years ago. So this is a new target but it is not the first one in detroit that one on belau closed a while ago but turn aiming. You're right yeah over a name out. Yeah okay all right. Well it's been a while but quite a while and it's going to be very different target. So what we're looking at here at the corner of mack and woodward would be a thirty two thousand square foot store one of their small format stores now. I don't want people in metro-detroit aren't used to store like this. I've actually shopped at some of them in other cities. They're very specialized. I if you wanna think about the idea of difference between this and say your giant target like imagine you know when you're going get paper towels and you have like all the brands like all the sizes right well. There's going to be like usually smaller sizes of everything and fewer brands. right now still be a payroll. They'll still be this and that but what they're gonna do is focus the selection for what's right around that neighborhood which is going to be your college. Students brush park the medical center and things like that. Okay that makes sense chair because you know they're talking about thirty two thousand square feet for this target A normal target is roughly one hundred thousand square feet kind of just visually imagined this a third of the footprint of a target.

Where transit transit she used to be and while he did not follow. The team exclusive extensively. He knew of their existence and after working them at with the mls major league soccer or he met a tj winfrey the chief of partnerships for detroit city. Afc who's also a cub shots out to the cubs decided that he wanted to do something with the group and when he pitched this idea dc cfc. Loved it Tj loved it. And he said if i get to do this with some people like merit and get to work with people in the city to do something nice and give back to the community and give back to my own hometown. I definitely want to do it. And they offered him the chance and he smashed it out of the park. The jerseys were a huge hit Even for people. Who don't like alternates. We're like yes. This is jersey. That's like of course. Trump won't be wearing them like every state every day and every day out but like they might pop up again later in the season. Because they're very nice looking they the smoke on the jerseys homage to the Northern guard and their fondness. I smoke bombs on the field. I want tell you that. The charity jersey in men's is sold out on their website. There's only the women's available and the awesome thing by just to circle back to merit is to hammer home. He really wanted to do something to help. With the city and partner with kids who can help Especially at mare. Goodness to help do something for these people who says he grew up maybe not around but grew up understanding exactly where they came from and to do something like that to work with a team in the city. The work of your hometown it. I think it's i think it's great positive. So the fact that it came into something that looks awesome from cra. Wholesome place is like double good for me. And then finally when it comes to dc stuff. There's some news around youth development. I know that soccer is something that i mean. Some people might not think about it when it comes to detroit schools and it being a hot thing. I mean we're known as like basketball and football but there there's a new initiative aiming to change that definitely detroit city. Afc is partnering with a bunch of youth outlets to get a indoor detroit public school league going at the field house. Which i think is great because it will allow areas that are underserved with sport to hop in and play for a bit longer. And i think part of the way they reach underserved areas at certain sports and certain activities is do allow them to do it year round and the problem with detroit is is. There really isn't a place to play soccer outdoors when it gets colder. Even place by inordinate gets cold. Save for the field out so to reach out to the one place that wants to help. The neighborhood is awesome and detroit public schools have like some really great teams cast castex typically strong defray krista raise typically. Strong renaissance is usually competitive. The problem is they're competitive. Because like they all these teams have like players who played the sports somewhat like maybe played sensor a young but like play kind of on and off..

Perfect example ochre bakery opened up and like no one talked but ochre at all then all the sudden ochre up in all these top five food magazines and people like we need to go to ochre right now and the lines are every weekend out that place before when it just opened up and was like the first few months people. It was like modest. You know nice bakery. Whatever wanted appear in all those food lists like you go to oakland like you will be waiting forty five minutes for a croissant. And like he and it'll be a great croissant. Don't get me wrong there. Food there is awesome but it just shows how like in the city. You can pray something people be like. That's nice but once it hits like big time it's like now. I have to be like i have to be a part of it. I have to chase a i to have it. I have to be a part of it so hopefully for detroit city. Afc people citizens. I you know what my team. Sports illustrated my teamed online for these big national article. Some publicity. I have to be part of it now like i have to go there and half to see it and i wanna be a part of these crowds and I think brian did a pretty good job. Of illustrating you know from an outsider's perspective of how detroit city f c has attached to the community and the communities. Attach itself. back. The point i will make is. They're both dc afc and ochre of been good the whole time and pro tip as somebody who likes ochre. Go first thing or go near the end. That's way that way you'll avoid the lines. If you go near the end your your selection will be as good but you can get some deals. Definitely i mean you might not get the croissant. You want but you'll get a croissant. Sometimes you need to be reminded and let the bakery tell you what you need to be having that day. Exactly one thing about saturday's match larouche was not wearing red. They're wearing black as part of these new smoke jerseys. They look kind of cool Fletch got more on that definitely. Diseases were designed.

Some those shots of their on frame probably would have found into the net Not taking anything away from. What jalousie echo. The defense did 'cause they played very well. They played very sound. They played the way they knew. They're going to have to play to get a point or potentially get a win especially missing star player like james pilots. Say who do not travel with the team. So like yeah. They got the came here and do they need to do. And detroit will have to adjust going forward. I'm gonna sound real stupid here. And i'm fine with that. Did the wet conditions have anything to play with the inaccuracy of those shots. Kind of When you missed from that close not as much like if you're trying to take shots from outside the box on a wet slick field it would make sense why you might scuff it a bit. But if you're that close to where you're like scuffing it that wide like you were going to miss it anyways. It was not like the anything it was. Hopefully when detroit plays this weekend. It is not as wet So they can get a nice charged match against a team. They also are not very fond of of the michigan stars. Let's talk about that match. What are we in for. A michigan stars coming off of an embarrassing for one loss to new amsterdam. What wait wait. Wait wait okay. So we beat new amsterdam six one and they lost to new amsterdam. Four one oh boy.

"And i think part of the impact of the state take over of the trip. Public schools was the dimming mission of the value of education in our community. And we see that now with people being misled by a slick ads by black money groups that are running. Groups are impacting. Exactly what we do in the city of detroit well. Let's pivot topics really quick. I know that listeners care a lot about public transportation. The bus system is in a crisis right now due to a lack of drivers and a bunch of other things and even before then neither the city or the region really provided a gold standard of services and. I'm just kind about it guide. We all know anyone who's taken the buses known as listeners. I've taken the nine jefferson. And all that stuff. I grew up on the east side But many detroiters need to go to the suburbs for work every day. And it's hard sometimes impossible their opt-outs and this is challenging for people who often have the least resources to deal with anything. How important is mass transit to you. And what are your some of your ideas. Help fix it. And i know that there's the city system and then of course as we both know. Many detroiters need to get two jobs in the suburbs. How do you help address that well. I think we understand that. It transportation really is now about mobility. And i think we have to rethink how we actually move people from point. Eight to point b. You raise an interesting fact that a majority of the people who actually live here at work outside the city of detroit and so we understand that and then need to have public transportation we would craft mobility solutions to how it rests those issues. Perhaps we don't need the sort of the large rolling stock. We need to have much smaller vehicles operating on on much on demand schedule. I think we could utilize technology a lot..

Although i was kind of skeptical of it success from the beginning turned out to be kind of neat spot in a retail corner of the historic fox theatre building. The exterior facade is super cool little metal metal details all that but that corner has had a tough time making things go Put your hands up if you remember when it was a johnny rockets many years ago. Anyway for traffic around downtown is still very irregular and still rather game day driven but starbucks fans should not worry. There's one at woodward and mack.

"Your fresh produce. Another map you share with me was about households with no vehicle I of course looked at where i'm at. I'm in a neighborhood with it. Hasn't number of house holds with no vehicle. I think that's an important thing to share. I also thought it was interesting. You extended the map beyond the city borders to give us a whole give me. 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.

This maps extra. Get the ghosts of ron paul. Peel out here right. There's more exactly but The great benefit in in writing. This book was But i had a blog with a bunch of maps on it. So i went through you know from the most popular maps to the least in just kind of with through the list To see which ones might live well in a book. So what's an app that you've done that made you rethink a position that you had or something you were thinking about ho. That's really great question I think the so. I really get started. Both in detroit. In with mapping. When i moved to dry in two thousand nine and i was working as a community health worker childhood obesity program. There wasn't really any good data for childhood obesity. So focused on. Where do people get food. i was new to the city. I was also new to map-making teaching myself. J s at the time. And so i was looking for other grocery stores Where two people purchase their food and that was the same time that the food desert label was really popular. Both with You know folks referencing research that said yes to trade as a food desert as well as other research while. Now there's these two hundred locations where you can go buy food. I said i have no idea what's going on. And so i started doing home. Based work is a community health worker. And i would stop at the grocery stores in between Visiting families and that that really changed my perspective both being able to talk with detroiters about where they shop for food and then also To stop those places in between my work visits. And what did that process teach you. That detroit is full of food. It's everywhere there are grocery stores. All of them have fruits and vegetables contrary to popular belief. Another one of the preview maps. That you sat me was about Churches and liquor stores. You wanna talk about that for a little bit. Yeah that that was an interesting one. That i i did a lot of going up and down vandyke And i would just constantly you know look at it was a storefront but it was a church now or it was an abandoned church. Now these two liquor stores on the corner. It was just like In all these different building types in innovations in you know somewhere. Open somewhere close actually. It was hard to tell which were opened. The which ones reclosed in. That really got me thinking about you. Know some of those ubiquitous places in detroit. You know people often talk about liquor stores and there are a lot in detroit And you know churches in detroit are are well known plenty of historic ones but also it's kind of a neighborhood staple.

But when we begin to talk about race directly in legislation than city. It's very hard to make it work because prop to is part of michigan's constitution.

Twenty six million from the federal government in in our pythons That's been on this already. Been the buckets have been set by the mayor and city council but will that be evenly distributed distributed throughout the city. Or you know we see certain districts or neighbourhoods.

When they think of detroit culinary exploits they think of the detroit style pizza. They think of the konia that kind of stuff. What about vegetarian. Cuisine and detroit. Drew you to do this i i think it was just a natural kind of transition. I just preferred e vegetarian and vegan stuff. I didn't always eat that way. But i kind of made the transition about three years ago and luckily for us. There's a lot of now more veggie options and a lot of just vegan options for those detroit kind of classics that we love like coney dogs and detroit style pizza specifically chili mustard onion. Detroit's first vegan coney spot and there's just a bunch of different like two spots that are not specifically vegan vegetarian. But you have a lot of different options cosign on chili mustard onions. I've been there a couple of times. And i can tell you as somebody who is not vegetarian or vegan. I actually enjoy it a lot. They do a wonderful job over there. Yeah they really do. They do so. How do you seen the vegetarian and vegan cuisine culture grow here in the area and every time. I've shared something involving. There's a passionate group behind it. It's growing like crazy honestly. There's now an emphasis on eating healthier.
