Haven't noticed it - I'll have to check it out.   
There is a volunteer firefighter that lives on W 8th  It could be on his property, just as a memorial

Curious what is going on the field next to the college...   they have worked up ground and have all kinds of colored flags in the rows as if they were conducting a seed plot test...   

Is this a college thing or someone else?

They're tearing down the former BP Station on N. Dixie in front of Detroit Beach. 

Anyone know if something new is going in there?


I see that the tall aerial sign post at the site of the old Howard Johnson motel is pretty much the only thing left standing.

I saw this right after I posted...  I guess I should have walked out and got the paper sooner  :)

I imagine its all part of the landscape changes to come when they start building the Hospital... 

Curious how long before they start wanting to widen the road - and put in more traffic lights.

The old four sided Kroger sign at the old shopping plaza on the Dixe in MonroeTown is laying on the ground the last couple of days.  It doesn't look like it fell but not sure why they'd just leave it laying there either.  They took the sign faces out when they closed the store 25 or so years ago. 

I'm surprised the scrappers haven't gotten it yet...

maybe that's what they're hoping will happen.

They're tearing down what was most likely originally and old gas station at the corner of M-151 and the Dixie.  The only activity I've seen there for years is they occasionally open up and sell fireworks.  Probably 15 or 20 years ago someone fixed the old building up a bit and put a steel roof on it.  Still, just fireworks for sale once in a while. 

Does anyone know any history on the building or businesses that might have been there?

Still drilling across the road from us.  All lit up at night.  They have run down some serious drill stem in the past 2 weeks.  I'm waiting for the frack tanks to come in next.

I wondered when they were going to do something with that corner.  It's not like that's a hot place for development though.

Maybe another titty bar is going on. I suspect Luna Pier and the township are hurting now that Whiting is off the tax rolls.

I see Monroe is going to fight the DTE valuation.  Always good to be in an adverserial position with the very entities that fund your operations.  Makes no sense to me.

Monroe screwed the pooch when they didn't win the natural gas power plant that was going in.  Heck - they didn't even attempt to compete for it.

I talked to City Officials years ago that this day was coming, but they had their heads stuck in a hole and kept saying coal is the future, it will never close.

Oh well - not my problem.
