Louis Aguilar and Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 8:58 p.m. UTC Jul 5, 2018 Officials for the Gordie Howe International Bridge declared Thursday the planned new Detroit-Windsor link has overcome all obstacles that could kill the project, and said construction may start the first week of October. "This is really the beginning of the end," Dwight Duncan, chairman of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, said at a Thursday press conference in Windsor. "Now construction starts and we have fought off every challenge imaginable." Duncan was referring to the 25 legal challenges the owners of the private Ambassador Bridge have made in an attempt to halt the Gordie Howe bridge, which would be built two miles west of the Ambassador Bridge. All of the legal challenges have failed, Duncan said. So did the 2012 Michigan ballot measure —for which the Ambassador Bridge owners spent an estimated $50 million to … [Read more...] about Gordie Howe bridge construction could start in October
By Beau Yarbrough | [email protected] | Inland Valley Daily BulletinPUBLISHED: June 19, 2018 at 5:11 pm | UPDATED: June 21, 2018 at 12:20 pm In 2010, the Chaffey Joint Union High School District joined a wave of cities and school districts around the country when it spent $1.8 million to install synthetic turf fields at four of its high schools. The benefits over natural turf were a big selling point: more durable, less maintenance and, perhaps most appealing in drought-prone California, no watering required. The school district contracted with a multinational company, Montreal-based FieldTurf USA, that promised the fields would last a decade or more. An eight-year warranty was offered in case anything went wrong. The Burbank High football field.

Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 8:29 p.m. UTC Jun 2, 2018 BUFFALO, N.Y. — Evan Bouchard sees himself capable of helping an NHL team as soon as next season. Bouchard was among the players who held court for around 10 minutes apiece Friday at the NHL combine’s first media day. He is grouped with Noah Dobson, Michigan’s Quinn Hughes and Adam Boqvist as the best defense prospects available behind consensus No. 1 pick Rasmus Dahlin. Bouchard was one of 80 players interviewed by the Detroit Red Wings over the past few days, and among 20 or so they also took to dinner. Bouchard holds appeal on several levels: He has a heavy shot that makes him a threat to score from the blue line, makes a great first pass, runs power plays, shoots right, and at 18 years old, already is 6feet 2 and 193 pounds. He finished 2017-18 with 25 goals and 62 assists in 67 games with London in the Ontario Hockey League. That’s the kind of performance that bolsters his … [Read more...] about 2018 NHL draft: Top prospect Evan Bouchard wants to play in NHL in fall

He got his meal - and $10,000. 1 / 1 Back to Gallery In the early hours of May 3, 2014, Emile Wickham and three of his friends went out to eat in downtown Toronto for Wickham's birthday. The group chose to celebrate at Hong Shing Chinese Restaurant, a mainstay in the area for nearly two decades, in part because they saw other people eating there at that hour. The group was seated and ordered food, but a waiter told them they would need to pay upfront for their meals before they could be served. It was the … [Read more...] about A black man was forced to pay upfront at a Chinese restaurant. He got his meal
