WARREN — A trip to the emergency room is a bad day for any family. Finding the family van missing when it was time to go home became an almost impossibly cruel case of piling on for one Warren couple.

It happened to the Moore family on Feb. 17, when 75-year-old Judy Moore was taken to the St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital at 12 Mile and Hoover for treatment of severe anxiety.

WARREN — When participating in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart program at school last week, Mound Park third-grader Miranda Luwick jumped “in honor” of her dad.

“He had heart surgery was he was 10,” she said, adding that he is OK now.

Jump Rope For Heart meant so much to Luwick that by Feb. 27, she was the top collector in the school and had already raised $100 for the cause. Mound Park is part of Fitzgerald Public Schools.

WARREN — Family members of Loyd and Kim Dejohn said separately and candidly what seemed obvious to everyone when she disappeared and was later found dead, and he was charged with murder.

By all accounts, the couple had a troubled marriage of a dozen years. Time and again they’d fought and made up, only to fight some more.

Kim Dejohn’s sisters said she was a scrappy tomboy who could take care of herself most of the time. They said usually, if someone crossed Kim, they’d pick her to come out on top.

While millions of Michiganders shiver through the winter, other people have temporarily fled for warmer climates down south.

But auto experts say those who choose to travel to more affable temperatures by car should pay attention to the challenges that both colder and warmer weather may bring to the road and to the vehicle.

According to AAA Michigan Public Affairs Director Susan Hiltz, Michigan has quite a few “snowbirds” who dwell in the southern states during the winter months.

You know, not all beloved pets let out a woof or a purr.

Some of the very best friends have scales, tails or even eight legs. The world of small pets is vast, and it can also be pretty darn convenient for on-the-go animal owners who don’t have tons of time to devote to a little pal.

Mike Palmer, owner of Premier Pet Supply in Beverly Hills, said there can be lots of benefits to owning a smaller animal like a hamster, a gerbil or — believe it or not — a rat.

WARREN — Visitors at Warren’s City Hall could soon get to choose between listening to “reason” or pausing for prayer.

A settlement reached in federal court Feb. 23 now requires the city to approve a Warren resident’s request to host a “reason station” in the City Hall atrium, in the same way the city has allowed a “prayer station” to exist for years.

NOVI — Coming in on the heels of the Detroit Boat Show, the eighth annual Cottage and Lakefront Living Show taking place this week in Novi will reinforce the belief of many Michiganders that the state’s spring and summer months are the best in the country.

The Great Lakes State offers almost unending choices of outdoor recreational activities during the warmer months — though ice fishing during the winter also has a huge following — and that especially holds true for those who live or own a cottage on one of those great bodies of water.

WARREN — The flood that ravaged Warren and other parts of metro Detroit in August was unlike anything ever seen in the city. So was the property insurance payout, which hit the city’s coverage limit at $5 million.

Earlier this month, members of the Warren City Council unanimously signed off on a budget amendment to account for the claim settlement, the maximum allowed under the city’s property insurance policy.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called for civil rights supporters to meet in Selma, Alabama, in March 1965 for a peaceful march, Detroit homemaker Viola Liuzzo didn’t hesitate.

The white activist felt so strongly about the Civil Rights Movement that she left her five children and husband, got in her Oldsmobile, and made the trip to demonstrate for the rights of black Americans.

It ultimately cost Liuzzo her life when she was gunned down by members of the Ku Klux Klan.

As temperatures recently fell below zero across metro Detroit, the arctic air has taken a toll on some vehicles too, according to AAA.
