    (CBS DETROIT) – If you’ve been to certain areas in the city in recent years you’ve noticed things look much different, but with all the opportunity, growth and development, Mayor Duggan says he wants to make sure Detroiters are benefiting.

But Mayor Duggan says unlike in other cities, he refuses to allow gentrification in Detroit. “In too many cities in this country the residents who have stayed get forced out either they literally have their low-income housing taken away from them or the rent goes up so high that people have to...

    Getty Matthew Stafford scans the field for a big play. The Detroit Lions needed to find a way against one of the resurgent young teams in the NFL, and with their backs against the wall, the team delivered in a big way in Week 3. Detroit pulled out a clutch 26-23 victory against the Arizona Cardinals, and as a result of that, their grades have taken a major turn moving forward this week.

    Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who grew up in one of the most polluted areas of Detroit, Michigan, wants policies that engender environmental justice. Last year, 271 people were murdered in Detroit, giving it the third-highest homicide rate among large U.S. cities. Grim as that total is, the University of Michigan School of Public Health estimates that 650 of Detroit’s inhabitants die each year from pollution. In a two-part series that began in January, Steve Neavling at the weekly Detroit Metro Times reports that 48217 at the city’s southwest tip is the ZIP code where that pollution is worst.

    Kobe Bryant won an NBA Championship at 21. Magic Johnson won an NBA Championship at 20. Magic also became the first rookie in NBA history to win Finals MVP, being the only rookie to have achieved this feat. Winning a title early in their career is usually a probability for most late first-round picks. This is because they go to good teams. However, the youngest NBA Champion of all time wasn’t a late pick. In fact, he was the number two overall pick in one of the greatest draft classes of all-time. It is the infamous bust from the 2003 Draft Class, Darko Milicic. Milicic was drafted by the Detroit Pistons one pick after LeBron James and before Dwyane Wade,...

    CBS Detroit – Americans take as much as 87% of their daily trips around town in personal vehicles says a study from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. The motor city is no exception, but with COVID-19 causing fear of using public transportation, more people have chosen to take their own vehicles instead of the bus. In fact, 20% of those who don’t own a car are now considering purchasing one. All this time on the road doing errands, commuting to work, or going up north to get away from it all adds up. On average we spend 310 hours on the road every year. For the average Joe, that adds up to about two and half years of driving over...

Stafford still has targets like Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola to throw to this season. He also gets another running back weapon in D’Andre Swift, who the Lions selected...
