Michigan Cold Case Detectives Gather in Howell

News Photo 9/22/14 - Cold case detectives from across Michigan gathered Friday in Livingston County. The gathering, which took place at the Livingston County Public Safety Complex on Tooley Road in Howell Township, was organized by Livingston County Sheriff’s Detective Ed Moore, who helps coordinate the county’s Cold Case Team, a three-member panel of retired detectives that works to close local unsolved murders. In all, 19 detectives from 10 agencies attended the meeting, thought to be the first of its kind in Michigan. While officials won’t discuss specific details of what was presented during the gathering, they did say they hope it will become a regular event and perhaps lead to the formation of a statewide network of cold case teams. The Livingston County Cold Case Team recently created a Facebook page "to get the word out" about cold cases in the county, most notably, the 1982 murder of Kimberly Louiselle, the 1983 murder of Christina Castiglione and the 1990 disappearance and presumed murder of Paige Renkoski. Anyone with information on those cases or other unsolved crimes can call the team anonymously at 517-546-TIPS. You’ll also find a link to the team’s Facebook page below. (JK)

Kensington Metro Park Hosts Suicide Awareness Walk

News Photo 9/22/14 - Over 1,500 community members walked for a national cause at Kensington Metro Park on Sunday. For 15 years, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has held its “Out of Darkness” community walks to raise awareness and funds for their campaign to create a world without suicide. Major walks take place in Metro Detroit including Ann Arbor, Westland, Livingston and Oakland County and the downriver area. Laura Edwards, chairperson for the 2014 Out of Darkness walk, says in addition to the registered walkers, over 400 “walk-ups” were expected. She tells WHMI Livingston and Oakland County has currently raised over $94,000 for AFSP. Edwards says the fundraiser brings community members together for the drive to educate about suicide prevention. She tells WHMI her personal experience of losing her 12-year-old son Chase to suicide reminds her of the need to connect and support one another. Some participants walked in teams in recognition of a loved one lost to suicide. One such team was Team Lowry who honored Justin Lowry, a beloved son and friend to many. After losing Justin just over a year ago, his mother and family friend stressed the need for resources to attend to mental illness and to remove the stigma about it. They both reiterated that it is nothing to be ashamed of and that suicide is a permanent decision to a temporary problem. (DK)

Winans Lake Paving Project To Start Today

News Photo 9/22/14 - Paving of Winans Lake Road - part of the 1.66-mill, 15-year millage levy passed by township voters in 2012 - is expected to begin today, weather permitting. The road will be paved from Rickett Road west to the Hamburg Township line, a distance of just under two miles. Green Oak Township Supervisor Mark St. Charles says the road will have to be closed to "through" traffic because it's too narrow to accommodate one lane of traffic while the road work is being done. However, he tells WHMI that those who live along that stretch of Winans Lake Road will be able to get to their homes, despite the road closure. Closing of Winans Lake Road during the construction period means a considerable detour for commuters who use the road to get to the US-23 and I-96 freeways. The supervisor says with good weather, the road shouldn't be closed more than five days to a week. Since the forecast calls for clear weather the next several days, he expects the project to be completed on time. The original project estimate was $896,000, but St. Charles says the actual figure is expected to be lower, since all of the road projects completed so far as part of the township road millage have been lower than the estimates.

Student Athlete of the Week 9-14-2014

Sports Photo It's time once again to recognize another outstanding performance from the Livingston area in our Student Athlete of the Week brought to you by Bob Maxey Ford of Howell. This week we'd like to recognize Grand Blanc quarterback Traevon Avery. He had a first half that rivals some professionals' full games. He was 18-22 passing for 350 yards and 5 touchdowns before being taken out for the backup as Grand Blanc was up huge at halftime. Once again we'd like to recognize Grand Blanc quarterback Traevon Avery as our Student Athlete of the Week. Congratulations on an outstanding performance from Bob Maxey Ford of Howell and WHMI, Livingston County's own 93-5.
