“Yellow Jug Old Drugs


20140416-085125.jpg

Expired medications can pose a threat to the environment if they are improperly disposed of by flushing them down the toilet or putting them out with the regular trash pick up.

The Great Lakes Clean Water Organization sponsors a program called “Yellow Jug Old Drugs.” This program partners with pharmacies to take back old medicine for proper disposal.

Although no Dearborn pharmacies yet participate, the following are the closest to Dearborn:

Dearborn Heights Pharmacy 25524 ford road DEARBORN heights , MI 48127 (313) 724-1111 Contact person Nabil Fakih – Pharmacist.
Wayne County also hosts Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events four times a year. Pharmaceuticals are accepted during these events.
Visit http://www.waynecounty.com/doeto find the updated listing for these events.

Questions can be directed to Patrick Cullen at 734.326.4437.

Embrace Your Techie Council and Mr. Mayor.


I thought I could leave it alone I told myself no one is listening it’s not going to make a difference. I tried.  I did and I’ve even taken a very big step back. There is one thing I just can’t sit back and shut-up about. Maybe I won’t make a difference maybe nothing will change, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit silent and let them get away with it.

As a taxpaying resident of Dearborn Heights I feel my rights are being violated by the City Council and the current administration. I shouldn’t have to ask for years to get some basic things that almost every other city surrounding us has and are using to communicate with their residents. I don’t care if you on the council feel that you are doing enough to get the information out to the public. I’m here to tell you you’re not even close.  How many of you have taken the time to find out just what is going on outside of your little bubble?

Want to see what’s going on outside the Dearborn Heights bubble? Here we go.

When Are We Going to Get Ours?


Could we please if you don’t mind Council and Mayor have our E Newsletter now? It’s the year 2014 yes 2014 and still the city of Dearborn Heights hasn’t managed to put together an E Newsletter. How much longer do we have to wait as residents of Dearborn Heights for this to happen. Many of us have been asking for a very long time to have this including past council members. Here is what the residents of Dearborn can sign up for. Don’t you think it’s time the residents of Dearborn Heights can sign up for the same thing? Those of you on the City Council who are not in favor of us moving to the 21st and letting your residents have access to so much. Please tell us WHY? I would just like to remind all of you It’s not about you it’s about us what we want…

Governor Snyder Putting Millions Towards Roads.


Biz Magazine had a link to a story about Governor Snyder putting $215 million for priority road projects.

 “I appreciate the Legislature’s working together to approve this budget supplemental that provides much-needed funding to help fix Michigan’s deteriorating roads. This has been a significantly harsh winter on many fronts, and particularly devastating in terms of potholes.”

Read full story here. Potholes are going to be a big issue for anyone running this year. As one person told me if I was running I make my whole campaign centered around potholes. Sounds funny I know he told me, but think about it how many City’s just dropped the ball this winter? From snow plowing to road repairs this has affected people in a negative way. Interesting concept for sure not sure if a whole campaign can run around just one issue.
