"It's Thursday may second. And this is an interview edition of your daily Detroit. I'm Jerry stays. And I'm spend Gustafsen we're coming to you today from the podcast choice studio at the Detroit shipping company Detroit city getting ready to kick off its twenty nine thousand nine season with a new coach and inaugural tournament that will represent the team's first steps as a professional sports organization on today's episode. We talk once again with soccer journalist podcast host and daily Detroit contributor Fletcher sharp all about the upcoming season. But first, let's pay some bills. The daily Detroit podcast is brought to you in part by my low digital Milo digital does full service marketing, but they don't do ordinary Milo digital engineers quality results through data and innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. All right Fletcher. So DC FC is about to kick off its eighth season starts may twelfth against the Michigan stars up at alternate soccer, arenas, and Pontiac versed. Home game at his may nineteenth against Kalamazoo FC. A lot of changes for for city this year big season for them new coach and Trevor James talk quickly about like sort of some of the new changes wisest important season for them. This is the first season a longtime. They'll be without bent pyramid. Actually think the first season period since the beginning with men Peterman former coach who left for Memphis nine. Oh, three. I think is the main Jessica US L, right? Trevor James is a coachee bringing for a turnaround. He took hold of the eleven of the US L and India Levin like bad, not like terrible. But like not great tournament of midtable team with that roster. That's great because they were bad. So you bring him in. It's he's kinda similar to Baotou Ben pyramid pyramid. So it's great to have someone who while the same mental fortitude the same kind of tactics similar wave talking to the players and getting stuff done. So it's great things that he brings that Brit sensibility to exactly so when he says stuff you're going to be like he must be right -cause accent. They've been playing soccer over there long lot longer than we have exactly also it's the founders Cup the first session the first year ever the founders Cup, which is the NPS NPFL's stab at a professional tier to make up for the NSL, which which close they're trying to make another league in essay, which I must've as if we can even open potentially. But it's a chance for these players teams that are allowed to actually pay their players all them pay their players and see some matchups you wouldn't normally see. So it's great for the Detroit to get in there because they're bringing in some players who you might have not have seen like in major league or in Europe or anywhere else. But like you might have heard of them like, oh this guy. I played for the US Twenty-three teamer. This guy was for the Canadian team this guy played for the national team of lake Kenya. Or like Jahn or something? So it's like you get to see some players who will be step up and talent, I think Detroit can benefit from that. Whether it's just the first athlete or the second half. And are they bringing these players in like have they already brought them in or will they becoming an over the course of the season. Because the the founders Cup that you're talking about doesn't start until August, some of the players are when you see them on Twitter, they'll announce a few players where like they've signed for example, Cyrus eighty who's like their talisman. He's been around. We've signed him for the full season. You'll see player we signed him for the founders Cup. Okay. Are we signed him for the regular season? So you've watched the words I say typically, if it's kid who still in college like, I know they signed a lot of sense, bent, pyramid laughed, and he used to coach e coaches or used to goes at Michigan state right of the rules. NPS L is or any amateur league soccer? If your coach coaches university, you cannot have kids but university because that way it's into AA rule. Okay. So when he left all the mic. Stay kids came to Detroit city. So those kids who are still enrolled in school. They will not probably be playing in the founders Cup to. That's where money's exchanged and without the right rents Yale. But some of the players who are joining for the founders Cup. We'll typically pro probably joined the team during parts of the season. They probably won't stay really start doing things in until near the end of the season. Yeah. Sounds weird. But I guess you'd expect nothing less of US soccer, right? All right. So let's talk a little bit more about the roster for the NPS regular season. Which again starts just pretty soon may twelfth you mentioned Cyrus eighty he's backs along with you know, some old favorites. Harris deacon, Sean Lawson what else stands out to you about the new roster, and you know, and talk about some of the key new arrivals that you see. He was here two years ago. He was also here last year, but he didn't get chance to play tarot Mandi. I remember I was I loved him before yet to Detroit city I used to play football manage. Here and that's video game. Yeah. It's basically like basically computer game where you are coach. And you simply your team sign players, and they just go out and play. And it's like what can you do make you play better and Tyrone Monty was actually on football manager? So I was like, oh, they got this one kid. You know, fifteen years old, I'm gonna buy them. And then I told him off like Newcastle for like fifty million than I look up. And it's like you're right in front of me weird. I'm sorry for selling you. I'm sorry. But he he's a really great talent. They missed him a lot while they had a revamped lineup last year and the attack. They were missing just the dynamic pace that he brings he's quick player. Good with both his feet. He's got flare. So he'll go by you. And you know, and you you need people with the family that you need people who are going to get into the crowd pumped up. 'cause sometimes the cr- they they as players have said they feed off the crowd and the crowd just kind of like what's happening now, they might just stand there. They know like go get go get the guy. Go Adam go at him. Ilga more exciting. So I'm excited for him to come back. Max Todd who's infamous for scoring that goal during the smoke game against Milwaukee. Milwaukee torrent where the smoke went off in the field kinda got blurry Hopton. They're just got a ball into the net. He's back as well. He racked up a lot of goals think in Detroit mercy. So it's good to have someone who's upfront like that Sadie, of course in the middle. They got Bakti Goodman back from a stint with US ELS. Pittsburgh river hounds solid middle center fielder who cetera midfielder who knows what he's doing? Typically won't turn over the ball will make the smart play that Sepp Harris back. They have Omar Sinclair who's great from great from deadball from free kick a little bit of a hothead kinda got a watch that a little bit. But if you get drop ball, and he gets chance take a shot. He's probably putting in the corner. So exciting team all around you cover the NPS. Oh, Great Lakes division as I mentioned. You're pretty familiar with all the Michigan teams. Let's talk a little bit about the division. There's one newcomer to the eighteen division. Toledo Toledo villa. Would. We know about them. They played in the UPS L the year before they played in the Premier League of America the year before that these are lower tier the UPS kind of similar tier to NPS L except like on steroids. NPS L has nineteen UPS probably to ten every every week. They're adding three more teams. It's really deaf teamed in Alaska they have had a team in Puerto Rico. It's it's kind of nuts just how they're expanding. They played their. They did. Okay. In the UPS. They did. All right and

Todd cast is brought to you in part by Milo digital Milo digital is full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data and innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com, take it away. Jer. Karen, welcome back to the show. It's wonderful to have you as a repeat offender honored as always. So you have your hands in yet another project to give people background. This woman has written a book on potato chips. She has been a journalist for the Detroit News. She has done tons of amazing things. And here she comes with yet. Another interesting thing to help people. Remember a Detroit neighborhood that I think we're gonna mostly lose soon. Aren't we? What's happening? This is part of this long ranging project. I hope to create that would affect other Detroit neighborhoods to that could replicate it, how do you preserve the memories of a place like Boston, Edison? Bright more in this case Delray, and it's done through the residents being able to record each other stories be able to take some sort of collective place to store maybe old family photos and films and pass it along the future generations, you know? May be can be stored at the Detroit. Historical museum, maybe the Reuther library, whoever will hold onto it and the neighborhood having a copy to keep permanently. And so they'll raise kind of the test subject for this. But I think it could be replicated some calling these citizen archives. So let's start with the beginning. If you will specifically round Delray, why is that neighborhood so special for me, it's special because it dates back to the late eighteen hundreds. And so you've got really the turning point of Detroit where it goes from farm and furtrher aiding to industrial on steroids. You have all the different things that they made from cigars to iron stoves, then turns into cars and high-tech and everything we're doing now. So that turn of the century is fascinating to me and Delray is really a great example of a small community that was largely like farmers and fishermen right on the Detroit river converting over to. Two massive factories, everything from GM's Fleetwood plant, you got the wastewater treatment plant, you have teen number of small factories along the riverfront, and it becomes a huge, cultural and ethnic landing place for all the immigrants coming into the city as well. So you have all these factories. You've got all these people true mosaic of Detroit nece is all symbolized in del Rey. So it's like southwest Detroit along the Detroit river by Fort, Wayne, and it's you know, few square miles. But it was a village before it got annexed into Detroit. So it it truly symbolizes this independent spirit. This can-do attitude that to me is is everything the city represents people forget that. They're actually quite a few villages that were annexed into Detroit. Hamtramck is one that still exists. But there was Springwells. Parts of Grosse Pointe township became the far east side. There was a variety of places that kind of got subsumed into the city, and then it just kinda stopped. Around the nineteen twenties or so where the city stopped expanding. And so those individual neighborhoods have still have their character. One of the things when I talked to people about Detroit that I try to remember remind them. If your context is suburban metro Detroit, eighty Detroit neighborhood is about the size of a suburb. Grandma, Rosedale is about the same population as Ferndale. And so you really cannot make Detroit as one thing it really is a mosaic because it is so big and those places have individual stories, which is one of the reasons why think that your project so interesting, especially if we can scale it up, and for people who don't know Delray is where that new Gordie Howe bridge is going to go a lot of things are about to be completely demolished. Absolutely. When Gordy Howe was located in Delray. They did it purposefully Detroit in the fifties had more or less done the same thing to del Ray that it did the black bottom instead of raising though, the whole neighborhood tearing it down they industrialized it. They made it. So that no more reser. Essential is going to go in Delray Alto. They didn't inform the residents necessarily of that decision. It was done in a way to place. All your your big things that you don't want anywhere else got put there. And unfortunately, as a result of that, even though the community maintained very strong cultural center as you're noting and had a lot of ties to what they wanted. Things were put there to get them out of the way. So you had the wastewater treatment plant went in the late thirties. Then you had I seventy five barrels through in the sixties the plant started closing in the seventies eighties nineties, you had a lot of other issues with gangs and drugs and everything else that happened in any other big city all took place in Delray that caused both people to leave and for things to kind of fall apart will then rightly so to some degree, and I don't wanna make anybody out to be a villain. This is just how it went Delray was positioned for the Gordy Howe international bridge, and it made sense because there was so much open land because. Of properties being devalued. And so much was torn apart over the decades. So now over two hundred structures have been torn down from Kovacic classic bar two churches being shuttered to four thousand trees have been completely removed. So it's a blank slate. They can put in this big campus of a international bridge span to compete with medi Maroons international span, the ambassador, and the reason is simple. A lot of people wanted another option outside of the embassador bridge and supporting necessarily that business and this one will be run by Canada, more or less with the state of Michigan's help. In the meantime, though, it's never gonna help delleri. They're gonna go straight off the bridge on seventy five. So this isn't even like a case of well. Del Rey might get some restaurants, and they might get some new investment because of the bridge. No, it is simply a place to put something that didn't need to be anywhere else. Well, there's kind of expand with without too. Because trucks do end up going off. Of the embassador bridge into southwest neighborhoods. And it does a lot of damage and creates a lot of environmental concerns as well. So in some ways getting that directly to the freeway for those big trucks makes a lot of sense. But it still will arrays a large portion of what's left, you know, one of my favorite places in del. Ray you're talking about I seventy five barreling through is tucked underneath I seventy five and that would be the carbon f let a club that is a fun place to have a drink is that in the is that in the footprint is that gonna stay, you know, some houses and businesses that were around I seventy five had the option to the bridging

So what exactly is a level for autonomous vehicle? That's a car that can work without the driver. But only under certain circumstances such is on a highway while on city streets or inclement weather. The driver would take over as we talked about on a recent daily Detroit podcast full level five autonomy is mostly still. Ways away, but Waymo is considered to be the technology leader. The factory will be open in mid twenty nineteen and we'll be home about four hundred jobs bedrock realestate reportedly helped make the deal happen. UBS global investment Bank opened their new eleven thousand square foot space in downtown Detroit. Last night. It's on the third floor at twelve seventeen Woodward right across from the old Hudson site, the building used to be a Christie and will serve as office space for ten advisors representing an expansion in the region. And the first time UBS has had presence in the city itself. Half of the spaces set aside for local UBS approved nonprofit organizations to host board meetings and other activities, you know, I had a chance to see this one last night. It's pretty deluxe. As you'd imagine for wealth advisors office love that big metal map of Detroit that also has the UBS logo. Nice touch. There's word that Eighty-one new residential units are going into an area near Lafayette Park. The development called Pullman park has a variety of renderings for modern looking townhomes park, homes and corner. Flats the units are intended for purchasing will vary from six hundred and twenty to thirty five hundred square feet and the prices have a wide range to they'll start at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars that's about ninety thousand dollars more than the median home price in our region. And some units will run north of seven hundred fifty thousand dollars the five acre project is a joint venture comprised of Detroit. Broder and sexy real estate, Farmington hills based hunter pastor homes and south based woodbourne partners construction is starting this year, and we'll be complete sometime in twenty twenty. Plum market says it plans to open a new eatery inside. The Henry Ford museum this winter. The new location will be called the Plum market kitchen at the Henry Ford, it will replace America doghouse which closed earlier this year, according to the free p- on tap artisanal baked goods from local bake houses, plus health conscious all natural organic and locally source options. It will also feature outdoor seating and a separate entrance from the museum. It's the first time Plum market has partnered with a cultural destination, although it operates a market and prepared food store fronts at Detroit metropolitan airport plus stores at Oakland university. The upscale grocer also plans to open too many stores in Detroit later this year. One a street concept store inside the ally Detroit center on Woodward. The other a cafe and market inside. The Henry Ford Detroit Pistons performance center, which is currently under construction in the news center. It's a sad day for lovers of eastern market and quirky deli. That's beloved by many Mark curly. And check over at the free is reporting that Russell street deli in eastern market is closing September twenty eighth. The reason a landlord tenant dispute over flora repairs, and who is responsible. And of course, we have a link to this on daily Detroit dot com. There's an impasse between Russell street co owner, Ben hall and landlords. Sanford, Nelson Nelson says the floor has damaged caused by Russell street and hall, basically says this is a move to raise the rent and push him out. No sin bought the building that also houses the popular subpoena, pizzeria and some other properties in the neighborhood for twenty one point six million dollars since you wrote about this last night Jair eastern market has released. The statement on social media, quote eastern market corporation is deeply concerned about the situation involving Russell street deli and their landlord firm real estate and the loss of a long standing icon of eastern market business in the end Russell street deli. Fate should not rest on a contested repair. Bill EMC stands ready to work towards a solution to do everything in our power to keep a long standing business open as part of the market district's valued mix of businesses that are so important to the city and quote. So I know you have some things on this one. I do, you know, whoever you believe when it comes to this story. The bottom line is that Russell street has been around for three decades. And it's one of those special gems of Detroit, and it will either be gone or in a best case scenario away from its eastern market location, though, I hope something can be worked out with that. But I keep hearing how eastern market is going to keep its character. But I'll be honest like this scorecard does not look good. This news is right on the heels of the closure of Mouton ice cream. Farmers restaurant, and one of my favorite places, the motorists Citi bike shop that happened actually just after Sanford bought the building it's kind of the Canarian in. The in the mind right in the canary canary in the coalmine is hindsight is twenty twenty and insert all of your cheesy phrases here. But it's true. It was something where if you look back on. And you're like, oh, this is this is the beginning. You know for me. Anyway, countless friendships have been sparked and capped over those communal tables on Russell street. One of the great things about him as you can you never know who you're gonna sit to next. They just assign you it's kinda great and Russell street embraced good food, healthy food way. Before a lot of folks did another thing I like about them as they hired local and seventy five percent of their staff was African American that is rare in greater downtown Detroit. And yes, I'm using Russell street is a prime example because everyone knows it, but as a longtime resident, and I think this is something to drive home. I think maybe some people miss this. When I posted this on our site. It's important to highlight things like this. But there are a lot of things that we have lost over the last few years. They just don't get the same Inc. Because they're not as Instagram -able. They're not as known, I mean, shy you and I. Both know the way to get to people's minds in this town is cars pizza and Kony's. Exactly. I guess I saw this to say if Detroit comes back, but it loses the people and establishments that that make this place truly special are we really turning things around or are we just like replacing stuff and slapping on the Detroit name for branding. And something did the we need to think about I just want to say one thing back to this whole thing. I know spend yesterday was talking about how New York City is just all corporate name brands. I'm worried that Easter market is gonna just turn into that. Which is going to be all name brands. I saw one joke that it's going to turn into a forever. Twenty one. If you have a green thumb and are looking to get your hands and some new plants or cuttings, we've got the event for you. The Michigan plant swap will be this Sunday, April twenty eighth inside the Fisher building. So not only are you going to get some really cool plants, but you're also gonna get to spend some time in the Fisher building. I mean, I'm I'm more of a dog person and a plant person.

And what does the future hold for the team joining me to chat about it as well? Arns from the in the box podcast. Welcome walt. Hi, glad to be here. I word from our sponsor. The daily Detroit podcast is brought to you in part by Milo digital Milo digital is a full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data and innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. All right. Well, let's get started Detroit has a ruptured with elation today. It was like a holiday starting first thing in this morning from that TSN report that this was in fact happening this has been rumored for a little while some people didn't believe it could be happening. How do you feel about it? Well, I woke up this morning to about fifteen text messages from people. Did you see with links articles and like gay like everyone's happy? And and yeah, like, you said this I feel like this is the worst kept secret Inaki that he was coming here. Because I there was an expectation once it was announced what back in September that he was stepping down from his position as GM with the Tampa Bay Lightning that he was gonna come here that and that been long speculated that he was going to return to Detroit at some point and one thing that that came out of all of that initial speculations last year was I didn't I never knew that his family never went to him to Tampa. Like that never only. Oh, well, that's a pretty strong meeting indicate oh, your family stayed in Detroit. You're probably going to plan was probably put in especially if you're gonna choose to stay in Detroit. When you've got the app option of Florida right warm down there all the time. It's it's nice. It's pretty nice down there. And it's have area the excitement of everyone in jubilation. Like, it's. Fine. I guess like, I'm I don't I don't want to steal anyone's joy, but improbably Ghana. Oh, all right on everyone's acting like okay. Well is GM. It's all better. Now. Everything's on the change will know why was going to get to that. Because the Red Wings are in a rebuild mode. And one of the things that is our men in the press conference said multiple times is that this is going to take time. And if you look at the reaction online, it's pretty intense like everything's going to be better next season and expectations. Feel really hi how do you feel about that? I feel like if you if you have high expectations for this team you're saying so over disappointment now granite now while I don't think it's out of the Roma possibility for this team. If things go right everything goes well for them. They stay stay healthy locking Grover Tuesday continues to grow Matha. Anthony, see you continue the girl. The all the young players that we saw this season step up in Alaska fifteen games if they continue that play. It is not a realistic for them to think that the way to possibly being a playoff next season. However. I think playoffs is it's attainable in the Eastern Conference right now because I feel like the east is not very deep. It's easier conferences fairly wide open. However, I don't think the wings. They're just not very they're still missing a couple of pieces now, granite and one thing. I I don't I hope doesn't get lost in in all of this is the groundwork that can Holland his left receive is meant to build with you know, you have Larkin Matha. Anthony, see you you have the Dina. They have the six number six pick whoever that may be. So you feel like they've they've been on their way up a little bit here. Yeah. It's it's not all doom and gloom is not doing. You know, we're not going to be off. Senators. You know, it's not not a dumpster fire right now and the wings. They have a ton of draft picks over the next two years to with the moose can Holland's made the last couple years, coincidentally after you know, Mr. Mr. ri- pass away that playoff streak became not as important anymore for this team. And I I've always felt I've always maintained that. Can Hollywood add to keep his job. Mr. I wanted that playoff streak. He was proud of it. But in a lot of ways didn't that play streak, maybe delay this rebuild longer than it? Should have. No doubt. No doubt. It did. I I'd be foolish sit here and say, no, you know, I I'd be I'd be peeing on your leg till you until you. It's raining if I told, you know, you know, sorry for the graphic there. But because people said all I heard people all your they need to take the neither tank like well, taking doesn't matter. If you don't believe me look at the draft this year. The worst teams in the league are not picking I one into you know, they're picking four and five and for people at home who might not know why that is why is that a because of the draft lottery that they do that which the which the NHL actually tweaked a few years ago where they gave better odds for the worst the worst team overall the finished last place of eighteen percent chance of winning the number one pick in the last four years. It's fifty fifty the worst seem has won it twice. And it's. Fifty fifty shot and actually the wings the wings. They finished fourth worst team. They're picking sick. They felt spots. Whereas Chicago who finished with a much better record than a wings. And we're in the playoff hunt until about two weeks ago in a season. They're picking third. The Rangers had a better record than wings. They're picking second. The devils finished two points lowered in Detroit and her picking one. So I mean, honestly in the last you can make the argument since two thousand seven you have a better chance of winning a lottery if Taylor halls on your team the to finish last place because Taylor hall he's been on teams big pick number one five times if somebody get that, man. So you don't. So you talked about how some of that. Groundwork has been laid by Ken, Holland one of the things that is Urman said was that coach Jeff Blache is staying for sure his contract was just extended. It's pretty clear to me from the conference student. These people have been in consultation talking to each other for quite a while is Roman had gotten permission. The Red Wings have gotten permission from the owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning to talk to is Herman. We talked about the things that are staying what are the kind of changes that you see happening that is Herman will do going forward. What kind of impact? Do you think you'll have the one thing that is Erman show constantly while he was in Tampa was he was loyal to a point two players in. He had no problem. Trading up. Move move veteran guys. Yeah. No problem. Moving out guys. The his biggest trading made was trading. The cats mardi Saint Louis. A fee was back in two thousand hang on two thousand twelve. When he traded mardi Saint Louis was twelve or fourteen. I can't remember fourteen got two thousand fourteen grand finals at year an Olympic year there to two thousand fourteen he traded mardi Saint Louis because there are some go. Well wonder some discord Kazan Louis was not happy that is minute pick him to be on scene Canada. When is Moore's GM of Team Canada for the Olympics that year, and it just kind of went downhill, and he had he's all right fine. See you later. I'll trade you in Saint Louis. He was arguably the, you know, the face of the of the franchise he also walked away from vanilla caveat. He's the all time leader pretty much everything that that are the lightning. So he's not he's not afraid to take big risk in any sticks was guns a bit. You know, he to he Jonathan Drouin was bitter down there and pretty much demanded a tray because they sent them to minors is miss and not not trading. You're gonna you're gonna plan to minors and in teams, and he wasn't bullied by teams to make a trade either. When he finally did trade him. It was a trade that made his. Team better. He got mckell surrogate Chev, very good young defenseman who is who's gonna care at blue line. I mean, we didn't see it a lot this postseason, but you know, diff- different. That's another story for another time. But you know, he's he shown that he's not afraid to make the shrewd moves. So that is one thing that I think the fans in Detroit will probably appreciate. But at the same time, he's not going to make a trade for the sake of making a trait. One thing as someone who covers downtown Detroit a lot that I'm excited about it's the seeded the energy is back with the fans, and I wonder if that's going to translate into sales because I went to a few games this year, including that massacre with the Montreal Canadians that place was empty. It was just difficult to watch. It was something where that spirit just hasn't been there at LCA. I wonder do you think this help bring that back? I think initially. Yes. And also, I feel like if Detroit as a city with the one exception being the lions because. Ause because of of the supply versus demand. They're betray is kind of a front running team. They'll only they're only going to support you if you're winning, you know, most people aren't going to go out, you have the die hard fans who will go out whenever, but if you look at you look at the Tigers attendance, it's make you look at the pistons attendance. It's anemic Detroit's not a basketball town. So I mean that's talking about that another time. Well, yeah, I mean, the pistons were better than the pisses had a chance to win a championship. There'd be a lot more people out like the grades accession with Detroit Lions, right because it's only eight you only get eight home games with the with the Red Wings. It's the feeling of well that way forty-one home games. How who's going to be enticed to go? See the Red Wings who everyone knows his bad on a Tuesday night against Columbus in February. I mean to be honest, although I've been a few times over the last couple of years. I haven't paid for a single one of those tickets writer, go. Yeah. I think initially yet you are gonna have that excitement. But then it's once they start playing in a to the DOJ of the season when you know. You're seeing the they're they're on the losing streaks lose interests are gonna happen with this team, especially you know, they go the way that I feel is might wanna go where he's gonna wanna go younger. You're gonna put a lot of inexperienced guys in a lineup. I said the eastern I felt like these conference what is pretty much open. But their vision is very top heavy with Toronto Boston and Tampa. And though the Florida Panthers in there to pant. They just hire Quenneville. So the Panthers are are. They're a good team as well. So they're going to be into off a bit with their division. However, you know, we'll we'll we'll see what happens. I mean, we're not gonna know anything about this higher for about maybe four years. So you say we'll see what happens, but I'm gonna put you on the spot oak, bold, prediction time. What is your prediction? I want to also ask when is the next Eastern Conference title coming and can you put a pin on Stanley Cup? Okay. All right. Well, so wrote so it's it's kinda all the coincidences that. Have kind of popped up on two thousand nineteen April nineteenth nineteen comes home. You know, and also Steve is men's first year with the lightning as GM. They pick six in draft wings big six this year. So couple of coincidence there. So, you know, just keep it rolling. He got he got the lightning to a conference final in year. Whether you're you're five so five years. Okay. You know, fi- five years to a conference final. I'll say I'll say six years for a Cup. You'll think you'll be able to do here. What he wasn't able to do in Tampa. Yeah. Why not us on bowl? Right. Well, yeah. You're going to bolt all our bold. Well, and I think they'll be flowers within two all right within two. All right. Good to know. Well, while where can people find all your things and follow you into the future? I'm on in the box where three podcast Detroit run hiatus right now. But we'll be back. We're we're aiming for late September of twenty nineteen. We'll we'll be coming back. Right. When season picks up right to your seasonal podcast. Okay. I mean, there's talk about hockey in June. Like, you know, there's nothing really talk about. But so right now, we're on is. But we'll be back hopefully into September work on some things. You can follow us at in the box.

"In a way for me to some feel much as a newcomer as much as like a homecoming. There's a new real estate development team in town, and they have grand designs for a big chunk of property in Detroit's historic Milwaukee junction neighborhood today, we're sharing with you that story. This is episode two fifty two of the daily Detroit podcast for Thursday, April eighteenth, twenty nineteen I'm Jerry stays. But first a word from our supporters. The daily Detroit podcast is brought to you in part by my low digital Milo digital is a full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data and innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. We're also generously. Supported by our members, we are in a big corporation. We're your neighbors telling stories about our home. So your support really matters become a member at patriot dot com slash daily, Detroit. So let's get started Amelia, Pat, Zamir and request rocky Lulla envision a twenty million dollar redevelopment plan for five vacant buildings totaling more than one hundred thousand square feet. The duo envision mixed uses including events space office in studio, light industrial residential and retail. They see it as paying homage to the city's past both as a manufacturing hub. And a centre of the city's underground techno music scene. It also builds on its current ration- as a creative arts district seven Gus in recently caught up with a million rocky to tour the properties and find out what's in store there before spend get started. You should know. We have pictures of the space now and rendering of what it will look like in the future. So you can follow right along up on. Daily Detroit dot com. Methods new properties in Milwaukee junction include five buildings in the industrial district along East Grand boulevard there bordered by Saint Antoine east, Milwaukee and Oakland street the right across the street from the tangent gallery and the building that will become batch brewing company's second taproom. It's also near the nine storey building with the colorful paint streak mural that is slated to become the Chroma another mixed use development, courtesy of the platform, which is one of the big established developers working in the area. Lot going on this neighbor. Yeah. Does I think is a lack on Kiessling Herve things neighborhood far to go there? But I've heard wildly popular. Oh is usually pretty crowded diverse crowd over there. So yeah, we're really feel pretty positive neighborhood. So what dro- what drew you guys here to Milwaukee junk? Yeah, we we I just it for the last three years, and particularly this block, you know, we're negotiating with the owner back then. Then distant workout with owner. They pulled it for us, you know, fast or two and a half years later it came back on the market. And you know, we quickly jumped on it to get under contract, and and close on it and all these buildings five buildings were all owned by the same person. Yeah. Yeah. So what we tracked attracted to it just because of culture and artists and neighborhood the history of the whole neighborhood and with the music scene as well as automotive scene back in back in the day. It's it's of really attracted us to neighborhood. We'll come back to the neighborhood's history a little later, but I who are these people Amelia, Pat Zamir and rocky Lalla met while pursuing graduate degrees from Columbia University in New York City both worked in New York for about a decade. But say they kept a close eye on what was happening back home in Detroit always wanting to come back and play a role in helping to rebuild the city. They launched method in two thousand fourteen. Milwaukee junction is their largest and most ambitious project, but they've already got two other projects underway in the city. One is a historic renovation of an eight unit mansion in brush park, just a few miles south. The other is the planned redevelopment of marina on a canal in Jefferson Chalmers on the city's far east side method. Developments website includes a quote from famed urban est and author Jane Jacobs about how cities provide something for everybody. Only when they're created by everybody. Here's Zamir talking about their approach, and we just kept in touch. We kept our pulse. Our finger on the pulse market in Detroit. And when we felt like it was the right time we joined forces, and you know, one hundred percent focused on Detroit now. So kind of the new upstart newcomers here in Detroit, I guess. Yeah. We've we've definitely kept an eye on the real estate and under projects going on for the last five six years but out we're kind of I guess the newcomers, I guess. Yeah. You think about it like that? Because you know, I guess I originally grew up in the suburbs. But my family has a long history in the city of Detroit. My my father grew up in the city. My grandfather grew up in the city manufacturing percents. Yeah. I'm originally manufacturing business. So in a way like for me, some feel so much like a newcomer as much as like a homecoming. But I do I am very sensitive to the fact that we can be seen as newcomers. And I think that's like why has the first step of all of our development projects because we are were newcomers to these sites. Right. These neighbors have been here for the past decade where where we will. I was in New York. And I think it's about being honest and engaging your neighbors early on like before Pango to paper and you start pissing people off because it's we want to help reinforce the community. Like, we aren't interests. Like, we don't think of any of this is a blank slate enrolled one or brace it celebrated do our part with helping the neighborhoods so noone before we bought this. Remember with some of this community stakeholders into neighborhood, you know, some city officials who have over overstated district and got to talk to him about you know, what their plan is what the revision is with the neighborhood. What what what is experience in the past? What do they want to see what they want to see on this particular blog? And I kind of helped shape our development plan or a vision for the site, so really kinda incorporating their ideas, and like really taken their like ideas to heart and say, look, we can we'll try our best, and we will try to, you know, implement what your vision is within our plan the largest property is called the Reuss printing building a four story building on Saint Antoine the dates to nineteen thirty. It was used initially by the auto supplier Campbell Boyer and later as a printing plant the first floor is a two story. Former production space that features an open floor and a mezzanine level above ringing. It like a balcony of offices in the middle is a spiral shoot once used to send packages from the floors above it. So these are like all the old offices of the printing plant in office player crackdown. They overlook the factor. Production and slide like everyone knows about to slow the slide where like the packages it goes all the way through to the top floor. Well, sort of slide onto packages or the the material onto the production Florida and ship it out. I can totally see like guys wearing like banker visors, you know, those green visors like chewing on big cigars, you know, coming out to like yell down. Yes, that's probably how it was this like we see in the movies. This is the old vault. So well. Cool. It's cabinets back there and stuff tying chains the safety deposit boxes kept all the loot. Yeah. The plan is to keep the separate offices along the mezzanine tenants will be able to choose whether they want to subdivide the space on the upper two floors, which feature raw concrete floors, massive MARTINI, glass, support columns, and that shoot slide which starts on the fourth floor and leads all the way down to the main level. I mean, so like looking in here like the space is very raw like cinderblock walls. Although support the Senate support beams are exposed like how much you know, renovating redeveloping fiction. We wanna keep it very minimal very ri-. I mean, but this building to become comfortable in marketable dependency need operable building system. So we need all new age back all new electrical, we need working bathrooms on these floors. Yeah. And we and we need yet. And we need new windows new exterior, so but I think the quality of the. This is base. Yeah. Exposed you know, expose materials keep the the concrete floor is polish it, but everything pretty pretty well, you guys going gonna keep the the shoot future. You think turned into a spiral staircase or something?

"From Detroit's university district. This is your daily Detroit for Wednesday April seventeenth twenty nineteen. I'm jareth stays. And I'm Cheyenne. No Sereni, let's get into what to know. And where to go around metro Detroit after this. Today's episode is brought to you in part by Milo digital Milo digital is a full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data and innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. Finally at long last. There will be one United bus fare card in metro Detroit. It's going to be called dart and we'll work on both Detroit's d dot and the suburban bus system smart. The new blue and white cards will launch may first dart passes will be available in four hour twenty four hour seven day and thirty one day increments. This will eliminate transfers and streamline the number of fair options between the two systems. The new cars will also have tapped pay feature where you could just wave them right over the fare box. A dart mobile app will be available this summer. The plan is for this to expand the queue line and Detroit people mover. But at timeline has been given yet. So now you will by bus fare much like on say the queue line, whereas for a block of time instead of paying twenty five cents for a transfer. Here's how that will work with the new system. It now cost two dollars for four hours and five dollars for a full day on the bus a monthly pass that works on all systems is seventy dollars reduced fares. Will. Continue to be available for people disabilities Medicare cardholders and youth. I this is so great Jair before had a kid. I used to take the bus all the time to and from work, and it really should have happened years ago. Didn't you have to take like two buses on the Woodward? Like you had to transfer at the state fairground. Right. I did because I worked too late in the evening. I would have to and when we say too late. It was like seven o'clock clock. Yes. That's too late in quotes. So I would take the dot from downtown woodwork upward get off at the state fair. And then pick up a smart bus to take me from the state fairgrounds, which is at eight mile to nine mile. This is part of what that fast bus help solve right? Like, that's why that was such a great innovation and it seeing ridership go up. Go figure you send buses out on times when people actually need them and people use them, right? Exactly. Staying with transit coulda high-speed rail service be viable between Detroit Ann Arbor and Toledo. The Toledo blade is reporting. That a study delivered this week to the Toledo city council says that setting up a fast passenger train service running at one hundred ten miles per hour on a t shape network linking the three cities would likely cost about five hundred twenty four million, and it could even turn an operating profit attracting more than five million writers year. It could also help with the road funding issue as it costs less to do this than plans to widen freeways. It's an interesting idea level Lincoln the show notes the full report. So there's a wild video making the rounds. Online showing a tow truck running into cars and a woman breaking the driver's side window of that tow truck with the bat so Cheyenne, you dug into the story to figure out what really happened. I did. So things often get shared online without any context or any new or more information. So I decided to really dig into this and before we get to deep into this. We're not including audio of the incident because we try to keep it clean, language wise here on the podcast, frankly, the audience rather disturbing, but we do have a linked to it in the show notes and on daily Detroit dot com. So here's what I was able to find out the tow truck driver lost control of his truck early on Wednesday morning at a and the police report said it was at one thirty in the morning. He then hit seven cars along grand river and wound up in front of us barring grill, so that's grand river. And I believe looking at your report telegraph. Yes, telegraph, then he kinda got swarmed by a bunch of very angry and possibly intoxicated bar patrons. It was it was a crazy scene and the video caption itself, actually, alleged the tow truck driver was intoxicated. What did you find out about that? That's really what interested me the most. Because that's a pretty big allegation. So I contacted the Detroit police department and they got back to me. And when I asked if the tow truck driver had been impaired. They said, no, I also spoke to the manager of the tow truck company, and he said that he was the driver was given a Breathalyzer on the scene, and he was cleared and was not intoxicated. Video was pretty gnarly. There was broken glass everywhere. Any update on that? When I spoke to the manager. He said that he took the driver to the hospital afterwards because the woman did break the window with with something. He said it was about. And so therefore the driver got cut. Well, it's crazy scene. We have a link up there. Here's the deal. People take care of each other. And yeah, this is not that was not the way to solve this whole situation. And we just wanted to make sure to dive into it because these are the kind of things when you talk about Facebook and news you need contacts. You need a little bit more research Cheyenne. Thank thanks for doing this work. Absolutely. The Michigan science center is offering free general admission this Saturday April twentieth to celebrate Earth Day throughout the day. There will be live stage shows, plenty of hands on exhibitions and Earth Day activities. Are we going to plant trees or something?

You cannot just show up you need to go ahead and Preregister to be admitted into the science center for this. Because otherwise it could be just a crazy field day. We will have a link to that in the show notes. It'll be a fun time. And you're the parent in town excited about this one. Absolutely. I always love taking the toddler to the science center.

"This is your daily Detroit record on Tuesday sixteenth twenty nineteen. I'm Jerry stays. And I'm Cheyenne. No sereni. Let's get started Jair right after this. Today's update addition of the daily Detroit podcast is brought to you in part by Milo digital. They're a full service digital agency nuke and learn more about them at Milo Detroit dot com. For Leonard Walker. It all started with a letter. I had heard about Mr. Dan, Gilbert, building the senior building. So I actually wrote him a letter not knowing that I would get an answer. But I got an answer from him. So then after I got the answer I had a meeting with a mirror dug in and Alexis Wiley, so Alexis Wiley got me in touch with everybody at bit rock, and that's how I got. Leonard is the first resident of the flats at one twenty four Alfred the flats are fifty four apartments in Detroit's hot brush park neighborhood, just east of Woodward. Nestle between the stadiums today was the grand opening for the development billed as forceable housing for seniors fifty five and older in order to qualify as a resident here seniors must make between about fifteen thousand dollars and just under thirty thousand dollars a year, in some cases, their rent payment will be just four hundred dollars a month. It's part of an initiative to help keep Detroiters living in the city as there are a lot of changes happening around here. Let me. Have you some context as one twenty four Alfred might not mean much to you as a street address? It's kitty corner from that beautiful ransom. Gillis house that Nicole Curtis and the TV show rehab attic, remade and the neighborhood looks completely different. Now from what it did in the show in two thousand fifteen the neighborhood had a few beautiful old houses left, but also a lot of empty urban prairie and a makeshift skate park. Now twenty four new buildings are rising with more than four hundred units under construction as part of bedrock city modern project of which these flats are apart. This doesn't even count other projects that have been happening in the area. Some of these new places are selling for between five hundred thousand and eight hundred fifty thousand dollars across the street. And here's the thing. They have buyers all of this change in less than five years. That's why according to city council president pro tem Mary Sheffield who represents district five developments like the flats at one twenty four. Alfred are important quality afford. Options for seniors are in short supply in the city of Detroit excited because I understand the need for senior housing in a city is very very often that you see development that strictly focus on just senior development ac- your housing, and we have a Hugh sear population in our city with very few quality, affordable housing options for our senior. So to have a brand new facility that is only focused on senior residents. I think is extremely important. And I'm just excited to be a part of the development up on the stage. You talked about that your district has the highest number of senior housing for listeners. Who may not be familiar? Why don't you tell people a little bit about your district, and why that matters? So my district is probably the most diverse has some of the biggest development one on. But then also represents some of the poorest neighborhoods. And then again, I mentioned I have a very high population of senior housing. And so it's important to me because I think oftentimes, you know, and I don't think it's intentionally though, but sometimes seniors can be left out of the conversation because they don't have that voice to come advocate. For things that they need. And so I've always had tried to be the voice for senior citizens and making sure that they are aware of the new products that are taking place they want to maybe transition from where they are to new housing and also does advocate for new housing overall within the city of Detroit for Leonard Walker. This development matters. Oh, man. This is wonderful. The second best thing that's happened to me. And I I'm right downtown. I can walk everywhere. I need to go or either catch secure line or the bus schedule. And then it's affordable. And then it's just grand. You just have to look at it to see. And I love it. The sales and service building at the old Ford Highland Park. Plant site is up for sale plans for an automotive. Heritage welcome center have fallen through. And so the forty eight thousand square foot building along Woodward is available designed by Albert Kahn. It's one of the few pieces of the formerly sprawling factory remaining that plant was the birthplace of the modern assembly line and the five dollar a day wage. It's amazing how we ignore history around here. This place has been sitting empty for a long time. Most other cities would have done something with it. This one's beautiful lease to me. It's kinda sad to see empty. It's beautiful to me too. I every single time. I drive down Woodward. I look at that building. And I think what could we do with it? It's just sitting there just dilapidated. Aretha Franklin was awarded a posthumous Pulitzer prize for her quote indelible contribution to American music and culture for more than five decades, other notable special citation prices have gone to artists. John Coltrane Bob Dylan and Hank Williams. Franklin is the first individual woman to receive special citation prize. The Washington Post has a story you should read about how the measles spread from Brooklyn to Detroit and the race attract down the man who unwittingly brought the disease will include a link in the show notes. Before we go. I want to talk about spam and melon dip. Okay, cheyenne. Let's and well that sounds disgusting. Well yesterday, you and spend were talking about the state fair development deal. And I immediately thought of aunt Chris's rest her soul annual worse entry to the food competition at the state fair spam and melon dip. What what did I'm terrified to ask this? But what what did this creation taste like what was like almost twenty years ago? But my recollection is it was sweet, and mushy and salty and a big bowl of. No, well, the state fairgrounds have had a lot of memories for folks over the years, but that one could have done without. That'll do it for the show today.

Well, the utility has submitted a report to state regulators explaining what caused the explosion and fire at a natural gas facility in McComb county that prompted that alert in its report, the Michigan public service commission, consumers said identified three factors behind the explosion and fire on January thirtieth. It said the fire began when a routine safety venting process meant to release a plume of natural gas became hazardous because of cold air, and when high winds pushed the plume over a hot exhaust area that ignited the Gasser mixture the utility says it's two month investigation into the incident was confirmed by an outside consultant, the Michigan public service commission is also conducting its own analysis into the cause consumer says it plans to implement new procedures across its natural gas operations to help avoid similar.

Close to fifteen now, I think there was a Nepalese restaurant in downtown. Royal Oak owned by a guy who went by rocky. He started his first one was in downtown Farmington, actually or near downtown Farmington. Anyway, the food was really good. It was kind of a unique place. You said at these really low tables on cushions. So you're essentially sitting on a floor, you know, like kind of unconventional dining style. Guess but really good food. It was similar to Indian. I would say, but the sauces were not quite as spicy rich. They were a little bit more like clean and flavors and stuff, and you mentioned like the ginger, salon tro. Garlic, those were kind of, you know, very common ingredients, really tasty them. I got to say that was the first place. I ever tried yak. How and how was that? You know? I it was fine.

"From the Royal Oak studios a podcast. Troy, welcome to your daily Detroit for Thursday, April fourth twenty nineteen. I'm Jerry stays. Today's episode talks about the mobility industry in Detroit. There are numerous startups. And the big players are serious about it with a lot of money you'd expect after all that new Ford campus that's happening in cork down. That's about developing this kind of technology right here in Detroit. Mobility, and transit issues are also very real where we live we touch on the challenges. Everyday people have around those issues in a city and region that frankly will never have something like a subway that conversation led by Sven Guston is with Glenn Stevens, Glenn is the executive director of Michaud that's an initiative of the Detroit regional chamber and despite being the head of something called well. Mish auto you might be surprised that his answers to the challenges and opportunities metro Detroit has is not just add more cars to the road. We'll jump into that conversation recorded at the Detroit policy conference right after this. Today's episode is brought to you in part by my low digital Milo digital is a full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data an innovative strategies. Learn more at my Detroit dot com, Glenn it's twenty nineteen in the city of Detroit. We've got all these new scooter companies we've got the Mobike share what's missing from the. Mobility mix. That's your wheelhouse. Well, there's a lot of things missing. But I also look at that as opportunity I mean, one of the things we're missing, and we're not gonna have is subway system. I mean mass infrastructure underground above ground system. That's something that Detroit never had and that's a whole 'nother show, but we don't have that. And we won't ever have that. Will there be more light rail in the future? I don't know. Let's let's hope there is. So we have to work with what we have the different intermodal forms of transportation that exist today, and how we connect those together and to solve these problems. And so that's both the challenge in an opportunity for a place that has one hundred thirty eight square miles. Just the city. What are you seeing? I mean, you work with companies all the time startups established companies everything I mean, what's the energy right now. Where's the focus in this sector in mobility? Yeah. Well, I think the energy is with everybody. And what I mean by everybody is let's use that word. It's a little bit over. But let's use the system word. So looks like it. Transportation. So now today tech companies own EMS suppliers. Technology service firms, and then all these new incubating startup organizations that have mobility transportation solutions, they're all part of the mix and the good news is that's all happening here in Detroit. So when when you look at what's new, for example, I don't know if you guys have been I think he'd been over to the landing zone to the we were have you been there to the I've been there. Yeah. That's right. So we have, you know, thirty mobility, startups incubating there along with around the corner, the Techstars, which is moved. So you've got a lot of density of new technology for mobility, startups happening in Detroit that's interacting with the rate of the rest of the ecosystem, and you're seeing more and more VC money coming in. So it's it's it's bubbling. And it's going to think it's going to continue to break. And that's a big focus for us. I always think that this term mobility is a little bit nebulous and vague and everything give us some examples of some exciting kind of forward thinking, you know, business what are people doing like, what kinds of ideas are out there that is about the broadest word. You could ever use. But it is the word, and it's interesting that we used to use that word, and we still do to describe people who had challenges with physical handicaps or things like that. And they needed mobility solutions the good that we still use it for that. But now, we've broaden the use of the word to say, how do people goods and data and services move more efficiently in a world that has more friction when I mean by friction you've got, hyper urbanization, scarcity resources and things going on in the world demographic shifts where new mobility solutions need to come to work. So when you look at it that broadly, you can imagine that there's everything from cybersecurity to Thomas vehicle development. I mean, we all know about the will least we do here. But maybe your listeners don't the may mobility. Shuttles in downtown Detroit and bus. Yeah. So it's an automated shuttle luxury vehicle that is shuttling bedrock employees. Quicken Loans employs from the parking lots down to work. They're gonna expand Columbus expanding Grand Rapids. That's bubbled out of this system here. Particularly in Arbor. But we've got different people who are looking at different types of applications for ridesharing tying different intermodal forms of communication together and in in mobility solutions. So you got I mean, it's just incredible. What's going on right now? Because here's why put it in a context to numbers the global auto industry right now is seen as like a three trillion dollar industry. But if you look at personal, mobility and shared USA Konomi that's projected to be six seven eight ten trillion dollars out in the next couple of decades. So the economic opportunity as well as the ability to Saloth, both global pollution, scarcity of resources hyperbole issues, that's there too. It's pretty exciting times the whole, you know, we keep hearing that millennials aren't particularly fond of the personal car ownership model that cetera. Right. Yeah. I I mean, you look at any place in the world right now. Whether it be in in Helsinki, or you know. Shanghai or Detroit people want to live and work differently and move differently. And so the notion of being car, free or car light. It's not an ocean anymore. It's a way of living. And like Devon that works on our team. He doesn't have a car, you know, and he can but he can get to where he needs to good to go. Take a scooter downtown he can do lift to get out to the suburbs. And if you want to go up north he can do maven you knew one of the or zipcar something like that. So that's the way it's working today. And that's. Choice. So I mean, we're in Detroit were Motown Motorcity the big three Detroit three whatever you wanna call them now. But I mean, so is mobility like for those companies for Ford Chrysler, Fiat, Chrysler GM, this tune ity is a threat somewhere in between. It's all of the above. So look at Ford, so they build an F one fifty every fifty three seconds, and they sell a lot of them, and they make a lot of them, and it's an incredible vehicle. So they got a foot firmly in the presence to run their company to deliver shareholder value.

"Happy Monday comrades. It's April first twenty nineteen. And this is your daily Detroit. I'm spend Gustafsen. And I'm Jerry stays today. We're talking about the Detroit Tigers and opening day. Opening day is basically a holiday in Detroit. And we thought we'd give you a preview of both the upcoming season and the festivities. I we'll talk about the team and their prospects ahead of Detroit's home opener. Chris Brown from the lockdown Tigers podcast called in to preview. The twenty nineteen campaign second, we'll talk fun. If you're partaking of the revelry on Thursday, our man about town devil Riley has some picks. What's great about these? Even if you're not going downtown or cutting out work early on Thursday to hop into the fun. You can check out these places most times before or after games. But I word from a sponsor today's episode is brought to you in part by our friends at my low digital Milo digital is a full service digital marketing agency that engineers quality results through data an innovative strap. Digi's? Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. Joining us to size up the Detroit Tigers two thousand nineteen edition is Chris Brown. He's host of locked on Tigers, which is part of the locked on podcast network. Chris also writes for Tykes town, which focuses on the Tigers minor leagues. Chris welcome to daily Detroit. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks so much for having. Absolutely. All right. So the Tigers have the first series in the books against Toronto. They have they split with the Blue Jays two games apiece. Both of Detroit's wins came in extra innings, but they scored exactly zero runs in the two losses. What did we learn about Detroit of from the first four games? Anything surprise you or stand out? Yeah. It was a little bit. Opposite of what I expected this year this year, expect pitching to be pretty bad in their offense to be okay. And it was just not the case this weekend. They're pitching was was actually really good. But their offense was abysmal in. I don't I don't know if we actually learned that's the way it's going to be hard to judge anything on four games. Right. Yeah. But early indications was weren't great. I I kind of skeptical. I think maybe some of that was just coming right back from spring training and not really the hitter is not being up to speed still. But I don't know. We'll see. So let's talk about the pitching staff. First of all the Tigers have lost. I believe for the season Michael Fulmer right to a bad pitching elbow. Yeah. Yeah. He tours partial partial Taylor tariff, one of ligaments in his elbow. So they're gonna they had the surgery already. He's out for at least a year probably more like next July is a good time to think of him coming back. What's the rest of the rotation? Look like. Well, now, they've got Jordan Zimmermann who they paid a lot of money to the other what's three years ago. And he actually had a great first start of the behind him is Tyson Ross who they signed this off season and Matt Moore they also signed this off season. And then Matthew Boyd who they acquired around the same time as Michael Fulmer. And then Spencer Turnball who is they brought him up from the minor leagues. Not familiar names. I think Tigers fans there's not a lot of talent there either. You could squint in something's ago. Right. Like with Zimmerman had a great start. I said Matt Moore had a great start which was kind of unexpected. But I as a whole I think it's going to be kind of a down unit for the team this year. What about on the offense of production? Where are Tigers gonna get hits and runs from you think? Well, I think the the top lineup is actually, okay. They still Miguel Cabrera is back. He hasn't done any real damage in the regular season yet in adult his, you know, MVP level Cabrera, but he looks pretty good. And I think he'll he'll be the driving force of the offense again this year. But Nicosia Knauss is coming off the best year of his career. He's he's back. And then I kind of expect better things from J mckendall areo this year he got off to a really hot start last year. They're third baseman Jim era and kind of falter down the stretch, and he just had on Sunday at a five hit game, which was a new career a career high. I wouldn't expect that every game, of course. But so I think those three will help and Kristen Stewart is a guy that brought up from the minors at the in the last year. And it's still too early to tell what kind of major league is going to be. But he's got a lot of power and in the minors. He showed a lot of patients. So he could be another solid offense into feast there. But yes, really just four or five guys. And then the bottom line of looks pretty grim. Lots of new names on this year's roster any of them. I mean, you mentioned Kristen Stewart anybody else who you think might be bright lights people. You might want to watch keep an eye on. Well, the government of their catcher, James McCann. They didn't send him an offer. And they brought up Grayson Greiner who I don't think he's gonna blow people away with his offense of production this year, this it is kind of know where he's he will be the tallest regular catcher in major league history. He's six foot six, but he normally that's not a good thing. Because you kind of in the way of the fire, but he manages to get pretty low back there. And he sees a really solid defender. But that's you know, casualties. I don't think they're gonna pick up on that too much in he'll be lucky to hit like two fifty this year. So yeah, I don't know. I mean, there's not a ton at least to start the year. There's not a ton of young exciting hitters aside from Ken Larry Stewart. We may see a few later in the season in the likes of das- Cameron. But it's tough to say obviously, very early. So everything is speculative at this point. But the Tigers are still in the middle of kind of rebuilding mode and everything. Do they have pieces, you know, that they could offer as trade bait to try to get better. Or are they sort of not even really thinking in those terms right now? You know, I I'm sure they would still like to trade nNcholas casinos. They were trying to train them all off season. And they never got a deal to their liking and beyond that, though, they really don't have much in the way of trade ships anymore. They traded their big ones in JD Martinez than Justin Verlander, and then just enough to in there. I think they were kind of hoping that if Michael Fulmer had a really good year that they could either flip him for a nice package of prospects. Or maybe you know, count on him to be the centerpiece of the next contender? But that kind of went down the down the drain with his injury. So aside from costano suit, it's possible. Matthew Boyd has a good year, and they could trade him. And then the two guys they signed in the offseason the pitchers Tyson Ross met more, I think they're really hoping they can get good. I. Half out of those guys and then trade them, but I'm a little bit skeptical that will happen to in two so far long season to go. Obviously are are you making any kind of projections. Like what how will the Tigers fair this year? Yeah. I think they're going to win about sixty eight games, which is four games better than last year. But still not very good. It's the they will be in contention for last place in the division. Again. It's not a good division. At all. The royals are also rebuilding the White Sox or maybe a step of head of the Tigers in there rebuild. But you got three teams that aren't really trying in the division upper sixties in terms of wins. But it could go five wins either way just based on the lack of quality in the division who does that leave to contend for the central division. Then you think well most people are picking the Indians. Just because there have the strength of a really good pitching staff and to superstars in the field. But they enough they didn't really do much that made. It seem like they're trying this year either. They're kind of just coasting on their good team from last year and the twins have a decent shot it making a run at it this year, they have they actually were trying and they have some prospects. They might be able to bring up later in the year. But it's basically a race between those team. So it sounds like from you know, from a sporting perspective kind of a home season for the Tigers. You know, what's your pitch to people for why should shell out and go down to commerical part to take chicken the ball games? I mean, you try to good new snacks at the stadium. It's always that's the thing. You know baseball. I think is the most. I mean, obviously, I'm a huge baseball fan, but baseball is the most enjoyable spectator sport because you can kind of go and not necessarily even pay attention that much. It's the games leisurely enough that you can, you know, pay attention for one batter and then wait two minutes into the ball in play. But and really even when we're talking about if you really just concerned about them winning or losing you still have even with the worst higher. Steve you've got like a forty percent chance that you're gonna see a wins. So those ads are not all that bad. And then when they're really good you've only got like a sixty percent chance they're going to win. So I think it's a good time to go down there. And just enjoy the sights and the sounds and the smells. It's it's a very sensory game to me. Chris Brown is host of locked on Tigers daily show part of the locked on podcast network.

"It's Saturday March twenty third twenty nineteen. This is a bonus interview edition of your daily Detroit. And this episode is all about cannabis a podcast, if you will I'm Jerry stays. And with me is fed Gustafsen marijuana is poised to become a big business opportunity here in Michigan after voters overwhelmingly voted to grant full legal status to we'd last November. Meanwhile, medical marijuana has been legal in Michigan for a decade now with the new licensing system underway that is reshaping the industry, we'd is estimated to become a one point seven billion dollar market here in Michigan. And on today's show, we speak with rush Hassan. He runs operations and business development for the reef a medical marijuana dispensary on Detroit's east side that interview which we recorded at the Detroit policy conference is up after this daily Detroit is brought to you in part by my low digital Milo Digital's full service digital marketing agency than engineers quality results through data. And innovative strategies. Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com. Toasts a little bit about the reef. And where you're located how long the business has been in in operating and everything. Sure. So the reef got its city of Detroit licenses two thousand fifteen so it's been operating for a little over three years. It's gone through tremendous changes. It's it's it's in the process of getting it state license it just pass it step on preapproval. So now, it's gone for step two. So you're under your operating under a temporary license where we have a temporary license. Correct. So we were one of the first ones that submitted our application to the state and working through that process. Okay. So how's it been going? I mean, you've been in business essentially for what a little more than three years now. Yeah. I mean, how's it going is it is is the medical marijuana business? Good business to be in good business to be an if you find the right things of the consumers are looking for. You know, I think what the reef has excelled at was providing that customer experience that. Other provisioning centers did not kind of provide. So you go into another provisioning center. It's small stuffy has kind of cookie cutter type office seats. It's really not an environ inviting environment for them, especially for say someone older who just got prescribed cannabis as a as a possible treatment for their for their element. You want to come into a place where you're kind of invited where you're have knowledgeable people that can explain it to you not kind of push products and just throw you out the door. So the reef has really turned it into a shopping experience, you come in the lobbies, very inviting. We have so far that feels like you're not up north cottage. We have a one to one interaction. So you can't just browse around in the store, you wait until someone's available to take you back to the limited access area in you'll have a one on one interaction. You can talk to them about what you want what you're feeling and any products that can help alleviate some of the symptoms now the medical marijuana industry despite being like a decade old. And now is operated under a lot of 'ambiguities and it continues to. I mean, what are some of the biggest challenges? I mean, you talked obviously about having to work as a as an all cash business, right? What are some of the big challenges, first and foremost wants your operational? The challenge is definitely finance and banking having the proper areas to store the cash make sure that the taxes the city tax says license fees bills, even that get prayed appropriately you have to pay all of that within with cash right right now, we have to pay with cash meaning that we go maybe get a money order or we get a cashier's check with the cash. That's really the only way right now. There are some credit unions out there that accept it. But not at the level of cash flow that we're operating under. And that's crazy. So like, I mean, you can't work with most banks, right? Any bang. That's FDIC insured will not take canvas money. So I I mean, how does how does it work? Then. I mean, this is crazy. It just seems like. Most businesses don't have to think about this kind of stuff. How do you guys do work arounds with us? I mean, a lot of work is mainly working with the vendors. I think a lot of the players who are in the cannabis industry, they understand and know kind of kind of hurdles that they have to go through so them dealing with cash. They understand that that's kind of what it has to be right now. Now, the bills and all that that are solutions. Right. Like, I say money. Order cashier checks of others ways to pay for that. The I would say the toughest thing for us. Right now would be figuring out a way of taking that money and paying the IRS for federal income. But like also Michelle mentioned there's waste to drop off that in cash, but now you have logistical issues that you have to security concerns. So again, it's it's not that it limits us completely it just creates more barriers for us to figure out solutions to get past. So having security with us making sure that we love the IRS. No, we're coming with this much. So. Make sure that you're able to receive this cash. So there's a lot of additional steps we have to take. What about like, I don't know if you've ever had to get like loans, or you know, investors, you know, things like that is that is that an issue for medical Maryland business loans. Definitely any small business loan or any loans for that matter if it's from FDIC insured Bank. They will not give out any loans. Now investors on the other hand there are a lot of private equity private investors that have coming into the market because they see the return on investment, they see a new industry kind of paving its way to really be a thriving booming large industry employing, lots of jobs, lots of innovative opportunities. So we haven't had much issues with investors. I mean, we I would say weekly we got someone on the door. Like, hey, do you guys. Are you guys looking for investors, but banking getting loans financing for any future projects that is pretty much at a standstill? We can't we can't use any type of banking solution for that. We're at this conference where we're. Talking all about the vision for Detroit's future and everything let's talk a little bit about that. I mean, you you, and I were just talking you came from product marketing background. How did you get involved in medical marijuana business? So a friend of mine has has had their medical card, and they have been a patient within the industry close friends. So I always want to know, I'm kind of business-minded. So I'd like to understand like, hey, Where'd you go get your product. How do you do it can you make money from it? But again, a lot of it from two thousand eight to two thousand sixteen a lot of it wasn't a gray. That's why I never really gave it much much time. But until the state came out with that groundwork, the MFA act that showed look we have a proper way for businesses to get licensed, and then comparing just the kind of the landscape from the prohibition of alcohol to the prohibition of marijuana. And how kind of the early players who came out of the prohibition of alcohol really are now very well. Establ-? Businesses corporations. That's what kind of gave me the comfortable feeling to say. Okay. I can actually let go of my previous. Employer and then move into the cannabis space and see if I can actually bring in my expertise from the software world manufacturing supply chain healthcare and bring those ideas into cannabis which touches all those areas, it touches manufacturing from cultivation into processing goes through the supply chain of going down to a store software for tracking for integration to the state to make sure that our inventory is matching with what the state expects us to have a lot of those things just kinda like merged. So for me to be in this industry and really defining. How the reef goes are even how any other player in the game moves it's it's been really satisfying zone. Interesting question on the panel about sort of the talent pipeline for for marijuana business really rim because we're talking about recreational marijuana being legal now to what does that look like in Michigan? I mean is there going to be like job training around this industry and things like that? Do you think? So there's nothing formal that's come out. But as the reef. We've taken some proactive steps. So the people we hire we do want them to be a patient within the medical marijuana program that way, they're used to the products. They know the products they are knowledgeable to share those information with other patients now as we grow and become cultivators in the space in processors, and we're able to generate revenue we do want to create an educational center where we can put on seminars, but the Detroit regional chamber just did today, bringing physicians educate more more more of the public educate. People maybe who are interested who don't have any marijuana background. But want to be part of the industry. We are looking at creating a structure where we can bring in, you know, very qualified people from other areas say consulting or manufacturing. But something new to them that they have no experience in cannabis then educate them and used her background in a positive way and say, hey, now, you have an avenue of exactly what you were doing just in the cannabis world. So the reef it sounds like has a greater ambitions beyond just. Being a dispensary. Correct. Yes. We are. We are pursuing cultivation we're pursuing processing we do want to be fully vertically integrated that allows us to take on more cost savings, which we can pass onto the customer interesting. So this is this is a good business. A lot of opportunities here moving forward. There definitely is. And it's great to see city of Detroit, William bracing this early on in our city of Detroit was one of the first ones that opted in hence. There was a lot of pop up stores here. And as the rules kinda got defined. We made sure that we were on top of it. So we're one of the few that are still open dressing. So okay, one final question is one that we're asking everybody that we interviewed today along the lines of the theme of this conference, the Detroit policy conference is and I want to ask you it through the lens of the marijuana industry. How do you see that sort of shaping Detroit in by twenty thirty? And what's it gonna look like and the industry here in the city? I would say if you don't have the professional outlook. If you don't have the kind of the like, you're saying the twenty thirty vision, I think you will see a lot of businesses that just can't keep up. Maybe they're not as business savvy. So they're maybe they're spending is different again. I think is going to be based on the actual business owners that that's in the industry, but if if I speak to the reef management team, and how they're operating we have twenty thirty in mind, we want to be one of the biggest cannabis companies here in the state of Michigan. We have aspirations to go national into other states and again be an attractive employer. We want to be an employer where people say, oh, wow. I want like someone graduating has expertise and anything that the industry can use. We want them to say like, oh, I would like to be part of the reef. They're a great employer benefits are great. And I think when you have that employer employee interaction that really. Feeds off just a collaborative environment the business can grow. But also the employee's that have a stake in the game. They feel like they're going with the company as well. How do you see the marijuana business sort of shipping Detroit? A it's going to become like a big employer big economic sector. You know? That's that's right now, we're so early in it states that it's hard for me to tell how many outside of dispensaries. How many other types of businesses processing cultivation will be in Detroit. I know transportation and quality testing is still I'm here. Now, if there's cultivation and processing big cultivation centers like the one we're projecting that could definitely change the landscape for that area. I think right now, it's really hard to say I would say we definitely see ourselves as a big player where we'll employ two hundred plus an employee's. We'll be paying significant taxes to the city, but we also have community initiatives where we want to go into like dilapidated neighborhoods, fix them up. Go volunteer at shelters, go grace funds for specific philanthropy organizations. So I do see big positive things happening from the cannabis people. But again, those people who are in the industry they have to want to do those things. It's I I would say if it's. It's hard to say in twenty thirty really what's going to happen. If everyone was like me, then I would say would have a huge impact. But I know not everyone's like me you have different operators styles. They might just want the easy dispensary. So from the reefs vision, we do see cannabis making a big impact. And I know we will be making a big impact. But right now, it's such a ground level that I can't foresee other companies.
