The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said this morning it anticipates as many as a million visitors a year coming to its planned discovery center to be built in the historic Globe Building on Detroit’s east riverfront.
Features will include a 60-foot climbing wall, an archery range, simulator rides demonstrating kayaking and other water sports, and classrooms to teach schoolchildren and other visitors outdoor safety as well as the science of natural resources and wetlands.
The details were revealed at this morning’s meeting of the city’s Economic Development Corp., a quasi-public board that holds title to the Globe building for the city.

How many of you Eastern Michiganers are voting for the status quo in November? It's going to take some bold actions at the very top in order for re-birth to occur in the dying cities of our nation.
We need someone brave enough with strong enough following to put a stop to the out-sourcing, stop the cheap importing, stop the foreign buyouts of our nations companies...to reinvest anything and everything here in this country.
This country was the producer of steel, excellent quality steel whose ore was mined here. From Duluth to Pittsburgh from the mine, to the transportation of ore, to the foundries, to the transportation of the finished product to the manufacturers and construction companies...steel was the backbone of industry.
So, we need the man of steel in DC. He's not the former Governor of Mass, nor the former Senator from Illinois, those are members of the Legion of Doom.

uhhh, Metro detroit is one of the largest population state. Not only industry wise, which is dying and has been due to automotive issues. Besides that majority of jobs outside of the city is farming! surprisingly which isn't much of a big deal anymore
Detroit police have been working to quell an uptick in violent crime, with 8 homicides and 33 non-fatal shootings in the past five days, Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr said today.
Police have closed two of the homicide cases, two remain wide open and investigators are following tips on the others, he said.
“We are swimming upstream from a violent crime standpoint,” he said. “As quickly as we catch one bad guy, the circumstances on the ground continue to feed this monster.”
Total homicides in the city are at 127 as of Sunday, up two homicides from the same time period last year, according to statistics listed on the police department’s website.
