Tony Paul The Detroit News Published 7:30 PM EST Feb 7, 2019 Detroit — They're "guys," barely having graduated from "boys," so they talk about a lot of stuff. And not all of it pertains to their profession, which is baseball. But when they do talk baseball, sure, they talk about one day — one day making it to The Show; one day taking turns pitching on that mound over there, just a couple hundred yards from where on this chilly winter day they're putting their golden hands to other uses, signing autographs; one day, being the faces of the Detroit Tigers. Such is the story of four baby-faces — Alex Faedo, Matt Manning, Casey Mize and Franklin Perez — who, along with a few others, are widely considered the future of the proud if floundering franchise. And, absolutely, they know it. "It's super exciting," said Mize, who carries himself as the wiser elder of the group. He's preparing to get married, for gosh sakes. "I'm happy to be a part of the … [Read more...] about Do Tigers have a future Big Four? Pitching prospects sure hope so

Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 9:45 PM EST Feb 6, 2019 Detroit — Less of Detroit is burning. Daily structure fires in Detroit have declined dramatically over the past five years as a result of stepped-up arson investigations and fewer blighted buildings, according to city fire department leaders. The average number of structure fires annually in Detroit has declined by 42 percent since 2014, according to fire department data. Detroit Fire Commissioner Eric Jones credits the reduction to an aggressive blight elimination program, bolstered investigations, inspections as well as community education efforts and city block clubs. A fire union chief acknowledges the city has fewer structure fires but says it still has a long way to go — and that conditions in the neighborhoods have improved merely from "Armageddon" to "insane." "It's still not safe for our members and the people that live here," union President … [Read more...] about Detroit blazes see huge decline, fire officials say

Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 7, 2018 It is Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest days of the Islamic calendar, and Detroit’s next full-term congresswoman — who in November is expected to become one of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. House — is rolling through southwest Detroit, snapping pictures of homes with her cell phone. “I’m texting these to the commander right now,” Rashida Tlaib says, tapping away. Let’s just say it’s not your typical visit with a politician, with her doing the driving and no staffers or handlers around. But then, Tlaib (pronounced tah-LEEB), a 42-year-old social justice lawyer, activist and former state representative, is not your everyday office-seeker. A couple of hours before, the divorced mother of two young boys rushed into her office in the Cass Corridor after Eid al-Adha prayers at the Islamic Center of Detroit on Tireman, late for a meeting, … [Read more...] about Rashida Tlaib set to make history as Detroit’s congresswoman
