Bond Committee Gets Tour of FHS Troubles

Troubles lurk above and below at Ferndale High School, as multiple repairs and projects have the School District exploring the possibility of asking voters to approve a 7 mil bond extension. The public vote is expected to be in February 2012. If approved it would extend the taxpayers’ obligation from 2023 through 2033, and would generate approximately $26.5 million for the District to use on multiple infrastructure projects.

Beyond Ferndale: An 8 and Woodward Biking Blog

If there are two streets in Detroit an outsider can name, they’re likely to be Woodward Ave and Eight Mile Road. Woodward from the olden days (think baby boomers and Dream cruisers), and Eight Mile from that rapper fella… We could hardly wait to get there. Even if it was daylight. (check out guest writer Arthur Miller’s amusing observations as he looks for spelling errors and unique features of these well known city streets)

Rev. Veska puts the Ferndale in First United

The church also reaches out through social media and maintains both a Facebook page and a website.

Veska also tries to raise the church’s community profile with special events such as an upcoming Blessing of the Bikes on July 17. Members and the public can bring motorcycles, bicycles, skate boards or “anything with wheels” to an outdoor service, weather permitting.

A Blessing of the Animals is also planned for August 14 as an outdoor service.
