He’s spent three months in intensive training sessions, learning how to become a human-tracking, drug-sniffing machine.

But even with all that work, he’s still just a young dog.

The fans were few, but passionate.

In the 10th annual Maynard Cup, there were bragging rights at stake as the visitors struggled to beat the home team, which had triumphed for seven of the last nine games.

Its first tunes were played under the auspices of the Belgian American Business Men’s Association.

Formed in November 1931, its members first performed a concert in January 1932.

Jon Watts said he’s been concerned about the situation on Bayview for years.

“The … condition of that street has to be, now, the worst street in St. Clair Shores,” he told City Council Sept. 19.

The customers came not just from Macomb County, but also from downtown and downriver.

But when Car City Records closes its doors Sept. 30, the devoted will have to find another way to get their vinyl records, CDs, and other music memorabilia and accessories.

The store is “pretty heavily focused” on used records, both LPs and 45s, said manager Dion Fischer, who has been running the store with owner Robert Setlik since about the time Setlik moved to Valparaiso, Ind., four years ago.

ST. CLAIR SHORES — Paul Dwaihy’s 1966 Plymouth Barracuda is the kind of classic muscle car you’d see in a big-budget Hollywood movie featuring a major chase scene comparable to the legendary one in the film “Bullitt.”

But the 58-year-old Dwaihy is not Steve McQueen. And this is Detroit, not San Francisco.
