Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 9:50 PM EST Dec 26, 2018 Detroit — With two struggling teams, something had to give. The Pistons had lost nine of their previous 11 games and the Wizards had dropped seven of nine. Somebody had to win. Early on, it looked to be the Pistons in a runaway, as they built a 22-point lead in a breakout third quarter — only to see the Wizards rally and trim the margin to three in the final minutes. Unlike some leads they’ve squandered in recent games, the Pistons held on, finishing the game on a 10-2 run to take a 106-95 victory on Wednesday night at Little Caesars Arena.

Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EST Dec 20, 2018 Car dealer Bernie Moreno took a small step outside of the tax payment comfort zone to show that bitcoin one day could be much more than a buzzword. Moreno, 51, converted U.S. dollars into bitcoin in late November and paid off some use taxes relating to car leases to the state of Ohio — gaining the Facebook bragging rights that he was the first ever to use bitcoin to pay some type of state taxes in the country. “Digital currency and blockchain are really the next tech revolution,” said Moreno, a University of Michigan alum and president of The Bernie Moreno Cos. in North Olmsted, near Cleveland.
