DIA's attitude doesn't help
Re: The Detroit News’ Jan. 19 Editorial, “DIA donors must step up”:
I think part of the problem is the DIA’s very stuffy and uncooperative “can’t do because we’re too good” attitude. Fine with me.
Then, let Judges Steven Rhodes and Gerald Rosen force a settlement on them, costing more money and taking more valuable time.
Let’s see how they like that. Exactly where is all the DIA money going?

Will cool heads prevail?
Renewing the admission fee for the tri-county area would be unacceptable. Raising “donations” is a shell game, nothing else.
Many, probably most, did support the millage on the whole, and that included free admission. The idea that millage funds millage would be used to supplement the pensions by private citizens is not acceptable.
The millage funds are the only predictable revenue source between admission and taxes. There needs to be a comprehensive plan that includes all components of relief presented.

Snow removal a problem
Most of us living in the Detroit area are disgusted with the meager effort to remove snow and ice from our roadways.
Keeping our streets and highways clear is a public safety issue.
Many communities find the resources for new municipal buildings and other pet projects.
