Got kicks? Every Detroit student who shows up on the cash-crucial Student Count Day will be able to answer "yes" thanks to a donation from Bob's Classic Kicks in midtown.
Perhaps, rewards for perfect attendance? Oh hell no: Count Day Caaaaaash, fo shizzle. Nice 'gaming the system' values you got there, Bob's Classic Kicks. What's next? Teaching the rest of the secrets to success for Detroit is written on the back of EBT cards?

There will be a panel discussion at the Troy Community Center on the Upcoming DIA Tax on July 26th (this Thursday) beginning at 7:30pm.
We're already getting a glimpse of what will happen if they are able to shake us down.
Find out the rest of the story.
Here's a hint: Contrary to what Art Tax Supporters claim, it's not just for the children.
The Panel Moderator will Doug Tietz, Troy City Councilman
Panel Members will include:
On the August 7 citizens in Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne county will be asked to pass a 10 year millage to subsidize Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Unfortunately, the public doesn't know all the facts about this tax.
What is it the DIA and their supporters don't want you to know about?
Find out more this Thursday.
Hopefully, we will also find out which republicans are opposing Rep. McMillin's efforts to defeat this tax behind the scenes.
Yes, True Believers. You've heard correctly. There are republicans, besides Brooks, who are apparently in favor of this tax.
