HARPER WOODS — Tyrone students have challenged themselves to go 30 days without bullying behavior thanks to two students who wanted to make a difference.

The idea began after an anti-bullying assembly at the school. The principal and teachers decided to host the assembly after noticing an uptick in detentions for bullying behavior, mostly due to name-calling.

Students were “just not being respectful of other people’s feelings,” Tyrone Principal Cheryl Puzdrakiewicz said.

HARPER WOODS — A nice brick home with pretty yellow flowers lining part of its front sits in a nice, well-kept neighborhood and would make a beautiful home for a new family, if it weren’t for one major issue.

The inside of the home has been deemed a hazardous site due to an illegal chemical drug operation that police shut down last spring.

A couple of residents came to the July 8 City Council meeting to express their concerns about the boarded up home and ask what happened that led to all the law enforcement activity and boarding up of the home.

HARPER WOODS — Eighth-grade students at Harper Woods Middle School celebrated Pi Day March 14 with a little bit of pie, but first they learned all about the famous, irrational number.

In mathematics, pi, a Greek letter, symbolizes the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Written as a number, pi is rounded to 3.14, which is why March 14 is Pi Day. Part of pi’s allure is that it must be rounded, because it continues infinitely with no pattern after the decimal point.

Picture a typical senior residence and images of bingo, arts and crafts, and green Jell-O might come to mind.

Walk into a modern retirement community, though, and you may be more likely to see seniors playing video games, heading out with a travel group or performing a sun salutation in yoga class.
