DAVISON (DTV) (05/18/2018) – You may not know the name Ken Morrow, but you should. In 1980, Morrow was part of the USA Olympic hockey team that defeated the Russian team 4-3 in the game known as the Miracle on Ice. Almost 40 years later, Morrow is still being recognized.
“A day doesn’t go by in my life where someone doesn’t come up to me and want to talk about it.” said Morrow.
The attention is not undeserved. That same year, Morrow won the Stanley Cup with the New York Islanders, making him the first person to ever win both an Olympic gold medal and a Stanley Cup in the same year. He won these career achievements in his first year, at the age of 23.
“One of those would be a career achievement for somebody, and you know, I had them both happen in the same year” said Morrow.
Surprisingly, Morrow never thought that he would play professional hockey.
“I didn’t have this goal of playing in the NHL or playing on an Olympic team. That all just kind of happened.” said Morrow.
He had a humble beginning playing hockey with his brother on their backyard rink in Davison.
What is Ken doing nowadays? For the past 38 years, he has worked faithfully for the New York Islanders, 25 of which he has been the director of pro-scouting with his team.

The amount of people on the internet has been increasing steadily throughout the last century and with the new, constant exposure to social media and instant messaging systems; problems like Cyberbullying and Sexting are at an all-time high among teens. With this increase and a recent case right in the Davison community, Michigan State Police came to host seminars regarding the dangers of these actions on the web.
DTV’s Rebekah Allen followed the story and produced a two-part series called Internet Issues with the first installment tackling Cyberbullying and the second piece informed students on the dangers of sexting. The series aired on Monday, March 26th and the following day on the 27th during the DTV daily newscast. You can head on over to our YouTube page DTV News or click the link below to educate yourself on the dangers. Remember to think before you send!

Rollaway Lanes, in the City of Davison, has not only given the community a place to bowl, but a second home for many. The Greene family started construction of the new business in 1946, and has passed it down from generation to generation. Starting as a roller skating rink, and working it’s way up to the bowling alley we know and love today.
The bowling alley is also a home for Davison High School’s Varsity and JV bowling teams.

Vice President Mike Pence made a two day stop in Michigan to rally support for the new Tax reform. He spoke to the workers at the American Axial and Manufacturing company about what this new bill would do if passed. Some of the main points are that it would simplify the tax code by reducing the 7 tax brackets to 3 and make filing easier. Also, this bill would eliminate the estate tax and eliminates some tax deductions. But if a big tax brake like this one passes a big question is where will the money come from? That is a question that has yet to be answered. One thing is for sure that to pass this bill both sides will have to work together.
