WARREN — Math and science can be fun. Just ask the students at Warren’s St. Anne Catholic Grade School, who finished the six-session A World in Motion program with presentations, a car show and treats May 22.

The program, started by the Society of Automotive Engineers, brought a team of volunteers, including several General Motors Co. employees, to the school, where they shared their love and knowledge of engineering concepts with fourth- and fifth-grade students.

WARREN — Residents can still support efforts to add a little green space in south Warren, but they have to act quickly to do it.

Voting ends June 1 for the Let’s Save Michigan’s It’s About Place contest, featuring a plan to construct a “pocket park” on a small strip of land at Van Dyke and Essex, owned by Warren’s Tax Increment Finance Authority.

The project is competing against a list of other regional projects.

WARREN — There’s an old saying: If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

That was the case at two Warren properties earlier this month, when Cpl. Matt Nichols of the Warren Police Department said a nefarious band of paving scammers recently “resurfaced,” and nearly took would-be beneficiaries of bargain prices for thousands in cash.

Linda Stepho said she’s operated Unique 1 Auto Sales on Van Dyke, north of 13 Mile, for the past seven months with her husband, Joe Yousif.

DETROIT — Walking down a backstage hallway inside Orchestra Hall May 3, the melodic sounds of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra musicians practicing led the way.

It was guaranteed to be a busy weekend for Paul Yee, the DSO’s retail sales manager and buyer.

“One of the great benefits of working here is hearing the orchestra,” the 1973 Center Line High School graduate said.

WARREN — When Kennedy Elementary special education teacher Linda Dunn steps inside her classroom each morning, she doesn’t feel like she is going to work. She feels like she attending school.

“I’ve always loved school,” Dunn said. “I went into teaching because I love school and learning. I enjoy being a part of that learning community and working with others for a positive common outcome.”

WARREN — Learning how to create electricity using alternative energy is just one of the many components of Lincoln High School’s green technology small learning community, offered for the first time this year.

WARREN — As the spring weather continued to shatter records last week, preparations were ongoing for a wave of repairs to a long list of bumpy local streets.

Exactly which projects would begin this spring and when remained unclear at press time, but Mayor Jim Fouts said work on a list of targeted roads should begin in April. The work will be funded by an influx of cash from the city’s residential streets millage, which passed last year.

WARREN — The food pantry outreach at south Warren’s Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church has been around since 1968, established during a strike at Chrysler to support neighborhood families by putting food on the table.

The organizers have since only occasionally been able to offer fresh produce — sometimes vegetables donated by local growers — to supplement the dry goods and canned food collected and offered through the pantry to members of the community who need them.

WARREN — Sometimes it’s the little things that bring a smile to a small child’s face: his first belt, or her first pretty dress.

The Salvation Army, the Our Lady Queen of Martyrs parish of Beverly Hills and the Our Lady of Sorrows parish of Farmington are getting ready to provide those things and more for children in need in time for Easter through the Dress an Angel program.

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.”

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.

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.

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.
