If he's so damned concerned about these houses, why didn't he use some of his and his supporters cash and buy them before they came to tear them down?


He's too busy supporting the drug and booze habits of him and his girlfriend...or at least he was. I have never seen the two of them together sober or at least on their way to being not sober. He and his drunken artist friends are still going to save the city with an artist driven economy. Speaking of which, are those fuck-sticks who wore the golden gasmasks from "Detropia" still living in Brush Park?

I saw the headlines about a squirrel on the roof but didn't bother to click. Timlin, eh? A search reveals that he's behind CAID, aka The Loneliest Gallery Anywhere, and he also runs the Detroit Artists Market. Someone suggested once that I join DAM. I imagined it as a bunch of politics that costs money to get involved in and was unlikely to yield any exposure or other benefits. Glad I ignored that advice.

The same search won't find that he's responsible for making any real art, unless a guy walking to New York in a box is what you're looking to hang over your couch.

Coming back from lunch the other day I drove by the Oakland county government center and saw a shirtless tough guy walking along Telegraph and carrying a box like the sort in which they ship copier paper. I assumed that he was a con just released and either all of his private property were in the box or, maybe,the jail saw that he didn't have a shirt so they gave him box with which to make a shirt/robot costume. Maybe I had this all wrong: he could have been an artist walking to New York by way of Pontiac?

From past and current experience negotiating surplus property purchases with DLB it is my assessment that Mr. Timlin's strategy is not only sound but effective.

If only there was a return my phone call version...

And....yeah....buildings are big part of stitching together a community. Who wants to see wasted resources?

So I take it that they are near impossible to deal with? Need to know some one or have an "uncle"?
Didnt one of their execs have to rather suddenly resign?

They move at a glacial pace on anything related to acquisitions and are generally unresponsive throughout that process. The highly publicized demolition program moves rapidly and is at the top of administration's scoreboard. Heading them off at the pass is really the only option as exhibited here.

Thanks for the info. Reinforces my impression it would be easiest to buy at the tax sale. I watched the auction site for a short while...reminded my why i no longer go to buy at auctions.

Ex-DPS principal: I can't go to jail for bribery because mom needs me

The Detroit principal who was charged with bribery just weeks after his school won a $500,000 giveaway on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show is pleading for mercy, hoping to stay out of jail for his crime because "his mother truly depends on him."

Moreover, his lawyer says, he's a "God-fearing man" who has learned his lesson.

"Make no mistake, Mr. (Ronald) Alexander has learned an invaluable lesson from this experience and is no threat to the public," attorney William Ford wrote in a filing today, stressing a jail sentence would "cause irreparable harm to (Alexander) and his family."

Alexander, ex-principal at Spain Elementary who cried tears of joy on national TV after learning about the DeGeneres prize, faces up to two years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 8 for accepting $23,000 in kickbacks from vendor Norman Shy. The money was a thank-you for helping the businessman bill Detroit Public Schools for supplies that were never delivered.

Alexander, however, is asking a judge to give him no jail time and sentence him to community service instead, arguing he's the sole caregiver for his 87-year-old mother, who has a vascular disease in her leg.

"He drives her to many doctors' appointments, provides food for her and takes her to church and any events she desires to attend," Ford argued in court documents. "He washes her clothes to prevent her from going into the basement and administers her medication daily and makes certain that she is on schedule. He enjoys taking care of his mother."

Alexander also takes care of his godmother, who is in early stages of dementia, Ford said.

Family obligations aside, Ford also portrayed his client as a "true helper of the community" who has made many contributions, including helping students and their parents with utility bills, car repairs, car tire purchases and landlord issues.

"Mr. Alexander has been a productive member of society and is a God-fearing man," Ford wrote. "He has made many contributions to different organizations and has helped many families in need."


As for his crime, Ford wrote: "There is no question that this is a serious offense. However, Mr. Alexander is remorseful and asserts that this is an isolated incident."

The U.S. Attorney's Office, meanwhile, believes Alexander deserves to serve time in prison for his crime. Federal prosecutors have already given him a break for cooperating. Under the terms of his plea agreement, Alexander faces 24-30 months in prison, but the government has recommended a slightly more lenient sentence of 19-24 months due to his cooperation in its investigation.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts will have the final say.

Alexander made national news in February when he went on national TV excited over a $500,000 gift from the Ellen DeGeneres show. The next month, Alexander was charged in a kickback scheme involving 12 DPS principals and an assistant superintendent who helped vendor Norman Shy bill DPS $2.7 million for supplies that were never delivered.

Out of the 14 defendants, 13 have pleaded guilty and all face prison sentences. Shy faces the most: up to seven years.

Despite his crime, Alexander's school is still getting the mega giveaway from the DeGeneres show — it was the largest in the show's history. In addition to a possible prison sentence, Alexander also has to pay $23,000 in restitution to DPS.

According to his plea agreement, Alexander received $23,000 worth of prepaid gift cards and checks from Shy in exchange for signing off on Shy's fraudulent invoices, knowing he was billing DPS for supplies that were never delivered to his school. The scheme lasted for five years, from 2009 to 2014, records show.

The only defendant who has not pleaded guilty in the case is Josette Buendia, 50, of Garden City, former principal at Bennett Elementary School. She is going to trial on charges she accepted $45,775 in kickbacks from Shy.

None of the accused DPS principals work at the district anymore. Some already had retired before the charges were filed; the others were let go.

Arguably this fat sonofabitch shouldn't be walking the stairs, either.

Carolyn Shy may not be able to save her husband from prison for looting millions of dollars from Detroit Public Schools.

But she might be able to save her $1.1 million marital home from being seized in its entirety by the government, her lawyer argues in court documents.


Nowhere does the article state that wifey worked or otherwise contributed to financing the home. If he robbed a bank would she be entitled to half of the money?

We've got one of those going on in suburban Chicago. A cop was embezzling from a youth activities fund and spending the cash on vacations and porno sites, then put a sunroof in himself when it became clear he was about to be arrested. Now his widow is wondering why the mean old guvmint won't let her keep any of what was purchased with the ill-gotten gains.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

G.I. Joe Something-ski? He made the paper out here.

Sort of in this vein is the fat little mastermind who is believed to have siphoned off $20MM from the credit union where he was the CFO.

http://www.tctimes.com/news/fate-of-lajoice-properties-still-unresolved/article_e7d78670-1399-11e6-b2d0-2733fa626df6.html

This guy was earning something like $80K per year -not terrible money for one with a modest lifestyle- but lived in a way that screamed I HAVE MORE MONEY THAN I SHOULD. Anyway, when the theft came to light the community was all oh-crap-he-was-such-a-nice-and-generous-guy. One story recounted how he paid something like a thousand bucks for a homemade cake at a cake auction for charity. He was so good to all of us, they moaned. Well no flipping shit he was good: he was splashing around money that wasn't his own.

Something else about the up north credit union bandit: he owned a dance studio and advertised like crazy in the TV and radio markets up here. Like crazy, as in all of the time. A friend of mine was the controller for a clutch of local radio stations and one time over beers and before the scandal came to light he confided that this dance studio was nearly the largest advertiser in their portfolio, beating out local car dealerships and the fast food advertising cooperatives. Again, when spending money that isn't your own you can do great things.

By way of Deadline Detroit http://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles ... 8WRZzWHrSc , David Was wrote what may be the lamest Detroit tourist guide ever for Newsweek http://www.newsweek.com/detroit-natives ... 2771?rx=us .

I'll stay out of the whole Buddy's isn't as good as whoever's controversy, the only Buddy's I've experienced was at 7-Mack Center and it sucked, but please don't lay out your native Detroit-born Detroiter who knows off-the-beaten-path things to experience in Detroit credentials and then tell people to queue up at Slow's. Seriously, fuck you.
