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

Monday, June 19, 2017

Seebaldt Street near Grand River and Tireman.)A pair of small black-owned hotels, the Norwood and the 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."...

Group Visits Nine Cemeteries, Memorials to Recognize Fallen Military Members - Centralia Chronicle

Monday, June 19, 2017

Memorial Day Ceremonies throughout the day Monday in the south end of Lewis County, striving to leave no veteran’s sacrifice forgotten. “They deserve that honor,” said Mitch Davis, incoming post commander of Winlock’s American Legion Post. Some veterans buried at the cemeteries visited Monday have no living relatives left. “We want people to know these people aren’t forgotten,” he said. Short ceremonies were held starting at 9:30 a.m. at Napavine Cemetery, the St. Urban Catholic Cemetery near Winlock, the Vader Catholic Cemetery, the Little Falls Ceremony, the Winlock Cemetery, the St. Francis Mission Cemetery, the Lone Hill Cemetery, the Toledo Cemetery and finally the Veterans Wall of Honor at Kemp Olson Memorial Park in Toledo. In preparation for Monday’s event, members of Common Ground Toledo, a nonprofit group dedicated to beautifying Toledo with plants, planted an “Honor Garden,” said Common Ground volunteer Linda Bird-Sonne. The garden includes plants such as patriot hosta, Dicentra, commonly known as “bleeding heart,” and red Japanese maple, Bird-Sonne said. About 20 veterans were involved in the event, along with a few Boy Scouts and one Girl Scout, said event coordinator and former Winlock American Legion Post commander Wendy Carolan. “We want to make sure all military veterans are remembered for their sacrifice and their service,” she said. While a small number of veterans participated in Monday’s ceremonies, they are a dedicated group. Tom Boone, of Lewis County’s 40 et 8, has worked to honor veterans by participating in the rifle salutes since the 1970s. He led Monday’s salute.He said he’ll stop “when they put me in the ground.”Several of the veterans in attendance said they hoped to attract more volunteers and younger veterans to participate in future events. “A lot more communities need to get involved doing this,” said Dave Dempewolf, chaplain at the Winlock American Legion Post.At the final ceremony of the day, veterans and volunteers left a wreath and a rose at the memorial wall and joined in a prayer asking to make veterans’ sacrifices worthwhile.“Help us preserve the high ideals for which our brothers and sisters died,” Master Sgt. Edward (Sparrow) Sparrowgrove said while leading the prayer.
