Happy New Year


In a matter of hours, we will say good-bye to 2015 and hello to 2016. I want to wish a Happy New Year to everyone in the Warrendale neighborhood and beyond.

May the coming year bring the best of everything to each of us and to our neighborhood.

Longest night in history


Tonight marks the Winter Solstice. Interestingly enough, not only will this be the longest night of 2015 but - because the Earth's rotation has been gradually slowing for eons - it will also be the longest night in the history of our planet.

Granted, it will only be longer than any other Winter Solstice night by a tiny fraction of a second; not something that anyone would even notice. I still think it's cool to think about, though.

100 days until spring


I want to take a moment to let everyone that, as of this morning, the first day of Spring 2016 is only 100 days away. The warmth of spring may feel like a distant memory at times, but it will be with us once again very soon.

Warrendale on Detroit Public Television


Back in May of this year, I was interviewed by a crew from Detroit Public Television about life in the Warrendale neighborhood. This was part of a larger series that DPTV did on Detroit's neighborhoods post-bankruptcy.

The clip on Warrendale aired on the American Black Journal recently. It is currently available on Detroit Public Television's YouTube channel and is embedded above.

I couldn't help but notice that the segment on Warrendale has received more YouTube views than anything else that DPTV has posted. I think that is a good indicator of the fact that there is an audience that wants to see more of the Warrendale neighborhood.
