Moon Lake Road gets $2.2 million for safety fixes - Tbo.com

Monday, June 19, 2017

Part of the $2.2 million revealed Tuesday will pay for additional curve warning signs with a speed limit, and solar-powered warning flashers near the curve, Pasco County Administrator Michele Baker said.v vLaura Markou, mother of Kimberlee and one of eight people who addressed commissioners, was passionate in her address to the group.“I have so many friends of hers that travel that road during the time (FDOT) conducted the study that go back and forth to River Ridge High School,” she said. “Those kids travel in wet weather, in dry weather. All these kids with bright futures. Do you want to be here in another month from now with some more dead? I don’t. I can’t get my daughter back. God forbid you don’t do something and we have more young lives cut off.”Outside the commission chamber, Bill Markou, Kimberlee’s father, questioned whether budget constraints were truly the reason the project was delayed.“It’s almost like you have Moon Lake on this side; you don’t have a very affluent community, and it’s like, they’re kind of ignored,” he said. “That, in itself, is wrong.”v vShortly after the girls’ deaths, Courtney’s father, Tim Little, erected a cross on the eastern portion of Moon Lake Road where their car came to rest.“I stood there in the rain on the side of the road putting the cross in, watching cars blast through there,” he said. “… Cars blasted through the collected water there hard enough to get me wet on the other side of the road where I was putting the cross in.”On Oct. 22, a single-car accident involving a Pasco Sheriff’s Office cruiser plowed over the cross.“That was hard enough to do once,” Little said. “I had to go back and pick up the pieces and move it further off the road.”Courtney’s mother, Christine Gilmore, and Gilmore’s husband, Mike, also addressed commissioners.On Aug. 26, Mike Gilmore came upon a wreck on the same portion of the Moon Lake Road on his way home from work.Justin Chichester, 22, was driving on the wet road when his car hydroplaned and slid into the path of an oncoming vehicle.Chicheste...

Hastings Street Blues: The economic roots that contributed to Detroit's worst summer - Crain's Detroit Business

Monday, June 19, 2017

Biltmore, each with about 30-40 rooms, were in Paradise Valley. Ed Davis, who in 1963 became the first African American to get a Big Three auto dealership from Chrysler-Plymouth, had a Studebaker Corp. dealership at Vernor and Brush.There were also doctors, lawyers, real estate brokers, drug stores, restaurants, numbers-running operations and even a candy shop. During the Prohibition Era, Paradise Valley also had speakeasies, becoming "a place where you can go into a saloon and drink whiskey out of a Dixie cup," Coleman said.Some, like John Roxborough, Louis' co-manager and a numbers-runner, began to accumulate substantial wealth."He was certainly thought to be a millionaire," Coleman said.Others saw success in Paradise Valley, too."For the first time, African Americans became either managers or owners of some of these places."More than 300 businesses in Paradise Valley in all, and well over 100,000 residents in Black Bottom, living in increasingly cramped quarters as racially-based housing restrictions kept them in the neighborhood."Because of restricted covenant deeds, it (Black Bottom) was very, very dense," Coleman said."Some of those second-floor residential living quarters, on top of bars and restaurants and bakeries, where an owner might put a wall partion up in a bedroom and make it two bedrooms, or take the living room and slice that in half, until you get a couple different families living in the same 400 or 500 square feet, or probably even less."...
