You said you like to give money to help out city of Detroit. Well we can get a thing going when people from Detroit or areas around it win really big in lottery to give money. Then with the money. We found ways to help rebuild it.  I know it will take lots and lots of money. You can help out. Like a few people who win really big in lottery can give. I don't think there time to rebuild Detroit for super bowl. Super bould 40 in Detroit that less then 1 years away. Yea if you win really big in lottery and you want to help. Go head that will help out great. Said you win like 100 millions in lottery and get like 90 millions. You give 10 millions to help rebuild Detroit. You still have 80 millions that alot.

      Jorli, I so agree with you.  To rebuild a city for a Super Bowl is senseless. 

      Our mayor and his cronies are spending like crazy on themselves...........latest thing was car starters for DOT employees.......geesh......what garbage........I hope the people of Detroit vote the way they should vote this coming election for Mayor........

      The money is there..........it just needs to spent wisely.  I should send my husband in there to run the financials............it would get fixed quick.....that is his job......to find "waste".  For example....Chasney High School 2 years ago got a whole new "facelift".............yesterday, they announced they are closing it........"waste"...............car starters, "waste"...it is all over the place.  Channel 4's "waste watchers" is exposing alot of things.  I only hope the people in City of Detroit are watching.

      Keepitreal.......yes keep it real..................first by understanding that you need a politician who is "smart", owes no favors, understands that one dvent will not change a city, "people" change a city (attitude and pride). I personally don't care if a man wears a sportshirt to a newsconference or a $1,000 suit like Kwame wears............the integrity and intelligence of a candidate is what I base my vote on..........Kwame has been rumored to party up a storm with women, etc. on Detroit's money.........what does that tell you about "integrity?"  The Police Chief was going to Hawaii for some kind of boondoggle for "police"............she felt the heat and finally cancelled the trip...thank god.............THE PEOPLE OF DETROIT ARE ALLOWING THIS.  It never should have been booked in the first place.  We have wonderful venues in Downtown Detroit now.  Greektown, the Casinos, Ford Field, Comerica Park, Joe Louis Arena................wonderful restaurants, and has this changed the City of Detroit?...........nope.......why, because the focus isn't in the right place.........they just put in this new skating rink, you have Hart Plaza.......some of my fondest memories are standing in Hart Plaza waiting for the Grand Prix to begin and eating a picnic on a blanket looking at the Detroit River........it was wonderful....but alas, they moved the Grand Prix and out went all the people who enjoyed it in downtown.............I love baseball....the Tigers are my team...all my life, I have loved my Tigers........They did not need a new stadium......Tiger Stadium was a tradition and I loved it.....Comerica Park is fine but give me back Tiger Stadium........did Comerica Park actually bring more "money to the city?"  I don't think so...........it's prettier and more fan friendly but did it actual improve "the bottom line for the city?"  Boston does just fine with their "old stadium."  Waste.........waste........all over the place. 

      Chicago..........a great city......I love that city.........what do they different than Detroit?  They make downtown accessible to the suburbs.  They have a rail system that is outstanding.........my son lives in a suburb of Chicago..and I only have to walk 3 blocks to catch the train...........the train takes me downtown and drops me right off in front of the baseball stadium...no hassle, no parking problems, no traffic problems........they got it right...............what does Detroit do to make it convenient for suburbanites to come to the city.........well, for starters.....any dvent I have to pay 20 to 30 bucks to park, fight a traffic jam, etc..........no one had a VISION for Detroit.............you have all the amenties with great stuff downtown, but the suburbs don't want to come because the access is too hard............I don't care how they do it.........run busses from the malls every hour, build a rail system, something.......anything.........I would love to take a bus or train from the mall which is 15 minutes from me and have it drop me off in front of Comerica Park.....I would be to at least 2 to 3 games a month........spending my money in the City............instead of the once or twice a year I go now.

      The best thing the City of Detroit could do is elect a new Mayor............and I really don't see anyone with a vision..............my favorite is Ken erel, Jr. ....but I don't think he is running................

      So, keepitreal, don't be counting on the money from the lottery.......count on a new mayor who will have VISION and the knowledge on how to execute it.

        Todd, you are a "rich man."  A "rich man" is not measured by the amount of money he has or the amount of toys he has..........but with the amount of "love" in his life and the "integrity" he possesses, the amount of "respect" he earns...........

        Speaking for myself, I think you are a "rich man."

          Another thing, Keepitreal.............you list your city as "Sterling Heights"....what is the reason for that?  Sterling Heights is an affluent city....why are you worried about Detroit????? 

          Something ain't right here.

            Good morning everyone.

            Sandy, it sounds like you all need, maybe a clean slate when it comes to electing new Politicians because corruption runs rampant among established groups. We have a Govenor here who is hell bent on bringing Casinos here. Don't get me wrong. I like Casinos, but like anything else, you have to weigh the pros and cons. And after looking at the issue here, I smell a rat. We had two new stadiums go up in Baltimore that were suppose to bring in so much money and so many jobs. Yes they are beautiful, and they used the money from lottery Scratch off sales to help establish the buildings. And now they can't hardly fill the one during the Baseball season, and Football only uses their about 8 times during their season. What a waste.

             I understand the desperation that Keepitreal maybe feeling for a city that he/she loves, but he/she is asking for help from the wrong people.

            Again. Good luck Keepitreal. Call your local Politician and ask them what they think the problem is and how they think it can be solved. Give that person some of your ideas and see what they think of them. You started here. Now take it to the people who are involved with the situation.  (Done.)

            GOOD LUCK    litebets

                  I been to Detroit and it look bad. I want to try and get it to look better some how. There other areas beside Detroit that are bad. Warren look bad. I think someone who buy alot of land. Then build a new sub with bigger houses. The house they build in Detroit are small and look ugly. To make Detroit look better. Get bigger house build. Like 3,000 sq ft and get house that it all brink. I spell it wrong. Then get new building and stuff. Then Detroit will look better.

                      I think there going to rebuild it little for super bowl 40 in Detroit. I don't go to school. Well if you get said 5 millions and other people will be like hey I'll give paints. Then other be like hey I'll give 2 by 4...ect. I don't know if you can do this but get a hud home cheap. Then take house down. Then you have a lot. Then sell the lot. Who ever buy it. All they can do is build a home. Todd did you ask who said I was rich? I think it was <A class=popmenu href= "javascript void0 id=link7 name=link7 onclick=popup mu5302 , link7 onmouseout=popdown;window.status= ;return true onmouseover=window.status= Open a menu of options for DoctorEw220 ;return true title=Open a menu of options for DoctorEw220">DoctorEw220</A> said you was rich.






                      1. I never said he was rich.

                      .

                      2. You have a lot of nerve to post details from a private conversation to whoever reads them without my permission.

                      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
