FLINT (DTV) – (08/20/2018) – Michigan’s Health and Human Services Director, Nick Lyon will be going to trial to face charges of manslaughter.
On Monday Judge Goggins made his decision for the case to go to trial which means he believes there is enough evidence for a jury to consider.
The judge’s decision in the preliminary hearing comes ten months after it started in September of 2017 and wrapped up in July of 2018.
Lyon is charged with involuntary manslaughter, willful neglect of duty and misconduct in office for the deaths of John Snyder and Robert Skidmore. Both men allegedly died from Legionnaires’ disease caused by Flint switching its drinking water source to the Flint River in 2014.
FLINT (DTV) – (06/08/18) – On Monday April 10th, people lined up along Dort highway in Flint waiting to receive their final cases of free water after the state closed the distribution pods. The state’s decision to close the water pods was based on tests that said the water was well within federal standards. Even though the tests say the water is fine, some think differently.
“We matter! And so the state is responsible for cleaning up what they did. We don’t want them to do anything for us, but we are citizens, we pay taxes, and we are entitled for them to correct in totality the mistake that they made.” said Flint Councilwoman, Monica Galloway
The people of Flint are clearly stressed, and spoke out about the state’s decision, many still not believing that the water is safe to drink, since not all the pipes have been replaced.
Representatives from Michigan United, along with several activist groups, came together at a press conference on April 9th to help project the citizen’s anger, as well as voice their demands.
“Citizens demand the state reopen Flint water pods and maintain citywide distribution until water infrastructure updates are completed at least. Flint residents demand that the state include in its budget bottled water for residents, and comprehensive testing for all residents in Flint.” said Carly Hammond, a Michigan United Representative.
They also demanded Medicaid expansion to cover anyone who lived or worked in Flint since 2014, and an end to the Emergency Manager Law that caused the crisis.
“In spite of what they say where the lead levels were before, you did wrong! There was evidence of you doing wrong. So take us back to where we were before you did those things.’ said Galloway
They also expressed their distaste for the MDEQ’s contract with Nestle and demanded it be reversed, while calling for a boycott of all Nestle products. After appeals from the mayor and citizens, the water pods remain closed.
There are some areas in Flint that are continuing to help the people of Flint with bottled water.
Water from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan will be distributed through their help centers. You can find those by going here https://flintcares.com/helpcenters/
You can find more information on the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan’s website https://www.fbem.org/how-to-help/help-flint/

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.
