On Saturday, 08/25/12 , at about 9:30 p.m. Ferndale Police arrested two men for stealing a cell phone from a woman at the McDonald restaurant on Woodward. The two suspects (Culberson and Reed) approached two women, engaged them in conversation, and then Culberson asked one of the women (an 18 year old Pontiac woman) if he could use her cell phone to make a call. She handed him her phone, then Culberson and Reed took off running.
“We can go anywhere and it makes people smile,” Miron said. “Earlier today someone stopped us on the street and said ‘thank you, I was having a bad day and this made a difference.'”

“DIYSF, as an event, hit the ground running 5 years ago with threads crisscrossing through it that caught more and more momentum in each passing year. Just as the artists hone their skills we are consistently doing the same,” said Chris Johnston, event founder and co-owner of Woodward Avenue Brewers, The Emory and The Loving Touch establishments near the event site. “I think we’re going to show a lot of people a great time in Ferndale again this September.”

City Attorney Dan Christ has been busy preparing a batch of ordinance changes which the City of Ferndale adopted at the Aug. 13, 2012 City Council Meeting. Four approved code changes involve the operation of motor vehicles, and their enactment means that the City can capture more revenue.
My grandkids love me (“Pa”). I may be escorting one to Ferndale pre-school soon!

Ferndale Public Schools and its leaders are at a crossroads. One road leads to active engagement by the School Board and better schools for our children. The other road is the path we are on, one of complacency and no clear direction.
I am running for a position on the Ferndale School Board because I choose the first road for my district and my children. I choose to face and acknowledge our challenges as a community. I choose to engage others within the District in my search for solutions
What you see is what you get – I have no hidden agendas and no further political aspirations beyond continuing to serve on our School Board. I will always be prepared for every meeting and every vote. I am a fiscal conservative and will do everything in my power to see that this District lives within its means.
