http://www.freep.com/story/money/business/michigan/2014/12/15/tiger-stadium-development-deal/20466685/

The City of Detroit announced today that it has selected Larson Realty Group to redevelop the Tiger Stadium site, choosing a proposal that will not only preserve the historic playing field, but add residential and commercial space.

Two local developers, Roxbury Group of Detroit, and the Larson Realty Group of Bloomfield Hills, responded to the city's March request for proposals with plans for a mixed-use development including retail and residential space, but multiple sources told the Free Press that Larson had been selected.

Larson's plan calls for smaller retail along Michigan Avenue, as well as a mix of for-rent and for-sale housing. FULL STORY HERE

TROLL FAN NEEDS AN APPRAISAL

 

Hello Kimmer, I found your web site and wanted to see if you could help me. I have this Thomas Dam troll that I have had for many years, I got it while I was stationed in Belgium. I collect (for fun) trolls and found this one at a flee market. Of cause its not in a box or anything but seems to be in rather good condition. The only markings I’ve found on it is the stamp on the back. I have decided that I need to do an inventory of the thing that I’ve collected over the years.

I was wondering what you could tell me about this doll and maybe a value.


THE MAGICIAN CARD: POWER AND ENERGY FOR CREATING A NEW LIFE

 

The Magician Tarot card typically appears in a Tarot reading at a time in your life when you have the creative power and energy to create a new life cycle for yourself. You have the ability to take the power of the Universe and manifest your desires. The Magician Tarot card suggests that a situation has been (or soon will be) presented to you that has all the inherent components to allow the manifestation of your desires. Those desires may be spiritual (fire), physical (earth), emotional (water), or mental (air), and are each aligned with the four elements of the Tarot. You have the ability to make it happen!

With the Magician Tarot card, you are inspired to apply skill and initiative to accomplish all your goals. You have a strong desire to begin something new, to ‘do, act, or go forth’. A ‘can-do’ attitude and strong sense of optimism will dominate a new beginning and thus the decisions that you make will have positive results.

Many years ago in the late 1980s I flew to a Tiger Baseball game in Tom Monahan's helicopter and watched the game from the press box..I was wedged between Bill Bonds and Sonny Eliot...OMG what a funny pair these two Detroit legends were! The language was pretty rough and they really turned on the charm and entertained the show promoter girl....Bill was so smart and funny...RIP Mr. Bonds.
