Back from the rolling Pennsylvania highlands, I join Jer again in our daily Starsky and Hutch routine to run down what’s happening around town. So what’s happening around town, you ask?
Well, Macomb County is now driving the bus on coronavirus infections in metro Detroit, yay? The Legislature has approved bills tying funding to public schools’ coronavirus efforts, parents in Livonia are protesting against virtual instruction for their kids’ school, the MAGA Cruise on Saturday may have spread more COVID-19, and the city of Detroit’s moratorium against evictions ended on Saturday. Good times.
- New protected bike lanes in Rouge Park are nearing completion
- Ferndale residents are complaining about getting hit with huge increases in their water bills after new meters were installed
- Fletcher Sharpe joins us to talk Detroit City FC’s loss last weekend to Chattanooga FC in its fall season home opener
- And we discuss what’s happening in Belarus, as the government there has cracked down fiercely against protesters following a disputed presidential election. As a reminder, I we did a whole episode based on my visit to the beleaguered former Soviet country. You should totally listen to it for added context about what’s happening there now.
