a terrible blight on our fine country

The house that had the garage that was hit was a resort home. The family is from elsewhere. One of the sons was living there for the summer and thankfully was working in town when this all went down. As of Monday when I left they still weren't allowed back in the house. This thing sucks from every angle!

Ironically there was very little damage done to anything on the ground. Again, I don't know anything about aviation but it looked like a firecracker blew up and that's it. And two people were killed and one critically injured. Terrible.

We have a family home in Charlevoix. My parents spend most of June and July up there. The plane hit a garage of a house that was two blocks from our house which is about 1/3 mile from the airport. Just thought that a distance measure would help out with the people who actually know what they're talking about. By the way, I don't know if they have a website but the Charlevoix Courier published a long article about it including where exactly the plane hit. Fortunately no one was in the house when it happened. Hopefully the boy will be OK!!!!

Looking at those photos just took me back a long ways. I forgot how great that city is. Thanks for posting that!
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Disagree||
I wouldn't go so far as to call it a lawless town. I live in the city and the police have come every time I've called. (It's still ridiculous how many times I've had to call... about 5 times in 5 years for various things) However, I live in one of the last decent neighborhoods. I wouldn't doubt your claim about not going into the north end at all.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Living in Flint||
I live in Flint. We made the top of the list this time around. A big part of that, though, was the serial stabber from last year. That guy stabbed a ton of people. Not saying the rest of the crime in the city isn't terrible and out of control. I'm jealous of Thomas Rawls now for getting out!
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Huh!||
Why did my comment get redacted for pointing out the obvious prejudice of the previous comment? Is it the blogs point of view also that Stonum has no other chance in life than to play football?
|4 years 19 weeks ago||I agree||
I think they will stick with him to try to help him. That not to say they won't come down relatively hard on him though... which thy should. Especially with the climate of college football these days.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||WOW!!!||
Man... that was super condescending! So apparently you just assume that Stonum is as dumb as a pile of shit and football is the only way he does anything at all in life. Maybe a little racist as well.
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Huh?||
Really? This bullshit absolutely never happened. The first thing to point out... He apparently takes his dog to dog parks so we know he's in at least a semi urban setting... and there are wolverines around??? Where the fuck does he live. I don't think these things exist outside of Minnesota or Wisconsin. Also, do you really think a wild animal would allow itself to get anywhere near some asshole and his stupid little dog??? And all of a sudden a domesticated dog just decided to be aggressive to the point of killing something? This dude has never been outside of a major city and knows nothing of dogs or any other animal. You have to teach a domestic dog to kill. It doesn't happen otherwise. Wild dogs are another story but this is a stupid JRT.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Nah||
A better comparison is Chauncey without a three point shot. Morris likes to use his size way more than Rondo. Have you ever seen Rondo post anyone up?
|4 years 28 weeks ago||It'd be way worse||
If the investigation takes longer than the five games but finds any violations and the kids end up playing in game six then OSU would be in way worse trouble.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Sort of||
I understand the gripe but the refs were pretty consistent with how they called it. I feel like they just favored the more aggressive play. How many times did you see UM going to the hole (when it wasn't a wide open dunk)?
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Also!||
I also don't think it should be missed how much he's improved over the season. He couldn't even go to his left at the beginning of the season.
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Good perspective||
I was so disappointed he didn't drive further or throw the oop to Hardaway but after calming down I think that was the move. He's been the leader and that was the shot. Hope he sticks around a while! The future looks bright.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||So F'ing Sweet!||
I'd love to see that game again!
|4 years 34 weeks ago||wrong||
Actually, a few of those guys are in the NFL now and doing well.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||All Fab Five||
Actually, I'd love highlights of all the Fab Five games. Whether it be the Martin controversy or not, BTN or ESPN Classic never play them and correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Fab Five pretty much change college sports for better or worse? In fact, Fab Five should have been a 30 for 30 episode!
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Jalen dancing!||
I want to see the game where Billy Packer chastises them as disgraceful. I think it was a win over MSU when Jalen got up on the scorers table and danced after the final buzzer.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||confirmation||
It is on 255 in the mid michigan area.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Comcast channel||
I believe its channel 255 or 254, right by btn, and only offered as an hd option. Sorry I can't be more accurate as I'm at work and can't double check.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Don't waste time||
I'll believe you and agree that it would be a bad idea for anyone who doesn't like recruiting to fill the position. Thanks.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Source?||
Not meaning to chide you but is this common knowledge that he doesn't like to recruit? Seriously, I don't know and I'm asking.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||What happens if/when||
So what is everyone on this board going to do if UM goes private and nobody will have any "right" to know everything that happens?
|4 years 36 weeks ago||Absolutely||
And besides, I'm sure Brandon felt that not giving every detail of his process gave him a competitive advantage. And for those who are questioning whether there actually was a national search, even if he was settled on Hoke, don't you think it was a good idea to talk to as many people as possible to get all the info to make sure it actually was an informed decision?
|4 years 37 weeks ago||House of cards||
OSU and Tressel really have built a house of cards. Its not that I can't wait for it to fall (although in a weird way it will be satisfying) but I am only happy in my college football universe when us and all of our rivals are good... only we're better. But seriously, they're a house of cards in the same manner that USC was... probably still is.
|4 years 37 weeks ago||I love the guy||
If I'm going to donate another cent to this program I at least feel better that the guy in charge has the same pride and affinity for my school as I do!
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Huh?||
What press conference are you talking about?
|4 years 38 weeks ago||uh huh||
By that rationale Bobby Williams should have been a helluva coach!
|4 years 38 weeks ago||Who cares?||
What does a RB coach do anyway? Watch film and say, "you should have run there"?
