Concerns raised after contractor creates cloudy plume in Ann Arbor-area creek

SCIO TOWNSHIP, MI — As construction continued on a new Miller Road bridge over Honey Creek on Friday, Nov. 20, some residents grew concerned as the water turned murky.

Peter Baker, whose home sits along the Huron River tributary just outside Ann Arbor, documented cloudy discharges where the Washtenaw County Road Commission’s contractor was pumping unknown material into the creek.

It turned the creek opaque all the way out to Barton Pond, where Ann Arbor draws its drinking water, Baker said, sharing photos of it online.

He reported it to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, which responded and contacted the Road Commission, halting the discharges.

The Moon Is for Sale (Some Restrictions May Apply)

You’ve probably seen the reports about the coronavirus driving people out of the cities to more-open spaces, but the quest for remote real estate is leading some buyers to the most desolate suburb of all: the moon. 

For as little as $25 an acre, sites like LunarEmbassy.com will sell you a deed to a chunk of Earth’s lone satellite. Lunar Embassy owner Dennis Hope says he claimed the entirety of the moon in 1980, and millions of people already have certificates saying they own lunar land. But though moon deeds might make cute novelty gifts, sadly for would-be space settlers, there’s no evidence they’re in any way valid legal documents.

The international community’s view is that nobody owns the moon, because everybody does. Triggered by the alarming specter of nuclear weapons in space, a 1967 United Nations treaty brought more than 100 nations together to agree that no country could

Between 30 to 50 Baha’i households were searched during Sunday’s raids that were apparently coordinated, according to HRANA.

Electronic gadgets and books on the Baha’i faith were confiscated during the raids, the rights group added.

Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE:PFE) – How One Contractor Is Trying To Help Detroit Recover From The Pandemic

The construction business has boomed during the coronavirus pandemic. 

That’s according to Seth Helfman, the president at City Contracting Services, one of the biggest contractors in Michigan.

Over almost 20 years, Helfman has witnessed countless economic cycles and their impact on construction firsthand.

The recent financial crisis surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic was a boon to the construction industry, Helfman said, referencing his firm’s work on schools, medical centers and athletic facilities.

“Historically, construction has been one of those industries that’s like a market indicator,” he told Benzinga “I’m not seeing a slowdown in construction or pullback in projects.”

“We’re seeing things continuing to push forward, and more things coming out, whether it is public entities like schools that have tremendous amounts of bond dollars that are out bidding, or private companies that are still looking to get their office suites built out, or restaurant owners that are still forging

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Armstrong House in Indiana Now Available for $1.2M

At some point in his career, Frank Lloyd Wright strayed over the Illinois border and started designing houses in the neighboring state of Indiana.

One of those rare seven—a Usonian-style home in Ogden Dunes, IN—is now on the hunt for a buyer. Known as the Andrew F.H. Armstrong House, the residence is on the market for $1,195,000.

Measuring 3,669 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom property is being sold as is—which is usually a bad sign. However, the listing notes that the home “has been meticulously maintained” and that it has multiple elements of Wright’s signature aesthetic, for which it would be difficult to find a comparable.

It was built in 1939 into a slight slope on the wooded property and, thanks to the efforts of the most recent owner, appears to be in excellent condition.

There are two fireplaces, an expansive living room, a carport, numerous built-ins, red-brick exterior walls,
