Vintage clothing shop opens in North Corktown

Rachel Leggs has opened a vintage clothing shop, Rachel's Place, in a 100-year-old N. Corktown brownstone. The four-story space packs in a range of clothing from casual to career wear, evening wear to rockabilly. "I have a very eclectic style," says Leggs. "Everything is made of the best materials. I'm a very big fabric freak. I have to touch everything."

On the Detroit River, build bridges to compromise

Unbelievable! Is the media blind? No mention of the stolen property, complete disregard of already agreed upon contracts, cutting corners on federal law, massive changes to gateway...and all of it to save money and continue their monopoly while we choke on fumes and get sick.

The FREEP needs to do their homework! It is just like everyone told me: The Bridge Company gets their way after confusing everyone and exhausting them. Not this time. If you agree, please take time today to:

Bridge Company Press Conference 10:30 AM, Tuesday, June 23, 2009-- Please attend protest if you can

Dear friends,
Please spread the word. We need as many residents as possible to attend this Birdge Company Press Conference tomorrow (see below) in Detroit to tell the true story behind the illegal changes to the Gateway Project.

This is NOT the Gateway Project that was presented to the community 10 years ago. Gateway Project as we see it on the ground violates the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and endangers our health due to the following:

1) Taking of 23rd street
2) two massive filling stations
3) no risen truck ramp
4) no buffer wall
5) attempt to use a driving lane off of fort street, part of W Grand Blvd, and the service drive
6) the enormous Duty Free Station
