WARREN — A prisoner’s recent trip and fall, and an attempt to bolt by a man facing jail time have again raised red flags for officials at the 37th District Court.

“It shows the deficit of the structural design of the court,” 37th District Court Judge John Chmura said last week. “It’s not something that can be fixed by putting a new roof on the court. It’s not something that can be fixed by adding more police and security officers. You have to redesign the building from the ground up again to fix the problem.”

ROCHESTER — Two new exhibits, “Eye Teeth: A Satire on the American Way of Life,” and “Tom Humes: Recent Works,” will open at the Paint Creek Center for the Arts with a joint reception from 7-9 p.m. March 2. Both will be on display at the PCCA, 407 Pine St., through April 7.

The PCCA is turning its main gallery over to a group of artists for “Eye Teeth,” which involves critical and satirical responses to the American social and cultural way of life, according to show curator Ryan Standfest.

WARREN — A statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary nestled on a mass of rocks overlooking a calming pond with koi fish has quickly became a main attraction on the Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church grounds.

The grotto is one of the many welcoming changes at the parish since Our Lady of Grace, formerly of Eastpointe, merged with St. Cletus Catholic Church at 26256 Ryan Road, south of the I-696 service drive.

WARREN — Translated from dog speak, the phrase “ruff ruff” could simply mean “thank you.”

It would certainly be appropriate based on the reported success of the Ruff and Stuff Pet Fest, held at Warren’s Halmich Park on Sept. 17.

According to Joanna Noble, director and producer for K10 Project Reputation Rescue, which hosted the event with Michigan Pug Rescue and Purina Pro Plan Rally to the Rescue, 32 animal rescues and shelters benefited from donations collected at the festival.

WARREN — Rich Hastings normally spends his days selling data storage systems through IBM’s office in Southfield.

He’d normally work more closely with one of the company’s water-cooled mainframes, but he spent a few minutes last week wrenching on the kitchen sink at Sue Adamski’s home in Warren.

Hastings, of Rochester, was part of a group of volunteers from IBM who partnered with the Warren-Sterling Heights Goodfellows to lend a hand to those in need on July 6.

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.

Today’s senior living communities are not the stale, dreary places stereotypes make them out to be.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — When Marsha Cassidy sat down with television icon Art Linkletter for an interview in 2001, he told her he loved quizzing kids on the air because “children tell the truth.”

The late Linkletter, of “Kids Say the Darndest Thing” fame, also shared his thoughts about “Art Linkletter’s House Party,” which was first broadcast on television in 1952.

“He told me ‘the world needed laughter; and he intended to spread it around,” Cassidy said.

WARREN — Those wishing to run for a seat on the Warren City Council now know, barring any successful legal challenges, which district they’ll run in, providing they don’t file to run at-large.

The city’s Redistricting Commission, meeting for the first time as a full group of five members, voted 4-1 on March 15 to adopt a plan recommended by the Planning Department to divide the city into five City Council districts, each of which stretches into areas of both north and south Warren.

STERLING HEIGHTS — The room is packed with hundreds of teenagers, yet it’s so silent, it might as well be empty.

Absent are the persistent whispers, rampant fidgeting and occasional scoffs typical of high school assemblies. The students at Sterling Heights High School are rapt, fixated on the benevolent words of a girl they never knew —and never will.

Her name was Rachel Scott, and she was 17 when she was gunned down on April 20, 1999, the first of 13 victims in the infamous Columbine High School rampage.

WARREN — Imagine the uneasy feeling that washed over Talana Williams when a utility worker arrived to shut off the gas and electric service to her home last July.

Williams, who paid $500 a month to live in the three-bedroom home on Detroit’s east side with her two children, had been told the utilities were included in the cost of her rent. That would have worked well for her while she attempted to pay down a large past-due utility balance from another address.

WARREN — On Oct. 10, 1984, in the heat of his second presidential campaign, President Ronald Reagan arrived onstage at Macomb Community College to deliver remarks that struck a chord in the hearts of “Reagan Democrats.”

Al Lorenzo was there.
