DETROIT – DETROIT (AP) - A city fund intended to cover emergencies was used for expenses that included a publicist hired by ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick during the text-message scandal that drove him from office last year.
Records obtained by the Detroit Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act show the city issued 900 so-called quick checks from the fund to cover routine or questionable expenses.
DETROIT – After losing quite a bit this off season via free agency the Detroit Redwings kept one of their promising young talents; Ville Leino. The twenty-five year old winger signed a two year contract worth $1.6 million to stay in Detroit. Leino in thirteen regular season games had nine points and had two assists in the playoffs for the Western Conference champions.
