Warren Police seek St. Clair Shores driver who hit, dragged man

Public Protection Business Breaking News

'Christina Hall Detroit Free Press Published 1:46 PM EDT Jun 26, 2019 She’s accused of hitting a Warren man with her car, dragging him for nearly a mile and then fleeing without rendering aid. A week later, Warren police said, she boarded a bus bound for Georgia, possibly to hide out with family there. Her 3-year-old daughter was with her, Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said Wednesday. Now, he said, Valerie Ann Bostle of St. Clair Shores is facing three serious charges in connection with the man’s death, and Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information on her whereabouts. Dwyer said the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office charged the 36-year-old mother with three counts: homicide-manslaughter with a motor vehicle and homicide-involuntary manslaughter, both 15-year felonies, and failure to stop at the scene of an accident, resulting in serious injury, a 5-year felony. More: Police: Warren man dead after being struck in hit-and-run, dragged, then struck again Police said Peter Chisolm, 55, died after he was struck June 5. Officers responded to a report of a body in the roadway on Schoenherr near Doyle Avenue on the city’s southeast side. Police said detectives determined a red Chevrolet Impala, driven by Bostle, struck Chisolm as he crossed Schoenherr on foot near Julius Street — the impact nearly a mile south of where his body was found. Dwyer said that Bostle drove away without stopping to render aid. Officers found the car a few days later, despite Bostle’s attempts to hide it, Dwyer said. He said she boarded a bus bound for Georgia on June 12 in an attempt to avoid prosecution and may be hiding out with family there. He said she altered her appearance — including her hair color and style — and gave away two vehicles before fleeing. Dwyer said the situation “easily could have been prevented if the suspect had just stopped her vehicle,” adding that dragging Chisolm caused “numerous injuries” to him. Dwyer said he did not know where Bostle was going when the crash occurred, but said Chisolm was coming from a nearby group home where he lived. Dwyer said police identified the car through grill parts found near the point of impact. He said they found the car, with grill parts below the vehicle, parked where Bostle worked at a tool-and-die shop in Macomb County. Dwyer said in the week following the crash she sold the car to a third party to get enough money to board the bus to leave Michigan. The car, he said, had not yet been picked up. He said police don’t believe anyone was in the car with her when the crash occurred. More: Police: Man admits to 70-mph hit-and-run that killed bicyclist The initial report included a different model of car hitting the man that night. A witness initially saw the car’s front grill become detached as the car headed north on Schoenherr, then noticed a body under the car, Dwyer previously said. The initial report also indicated the man was struck by another vehicle and that the driver of the second car stopped and tried to render aid. However, Chisolm was dead at the scene. Anyone with information on Bostle’s whereabouts is asked to call Warren police at 586-574-4877. Contact Christina Hall: chall@freepress.com. Follow her on Twitter: @challreporter.'

Rocket Mortgage Classic: Kid Rock talks golf, Trump, hole-in-one as he hits Detroit Golf Club

'Kid Rock has golfed shirtless in overalls, swigged beers on the links with John Daly, and gone red-white-and-blue for a round with the president. But he played it low-key on Tuesday at Detroit Golf Club, where he was part of the 313 Area Celebrity Challenge, a three-team scramble, ahead of the Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA tour event. There were no crazy outfits, no wild shenanigans, not even a drink in hand, as the cigar-chomping Michigan rocker joined a team with pro golfer Rickie Fowler, the Red Wings’ Justin Abdelkader and Golf Channel host Blair O’Neal. “There’s always tomorrow!” he told the Free Press ahead of the afternoon outing. He’ll be back Wednesday at Detroit Golf Club, where he’s a member, for an 18-hole pro-am competition. SPORTS FANS : Best credit cards on the market Shouts of “Let’s go, Bobby!” and “American bad ass!” rang out from the gallery Tuesday as Rock teed off on the competition’s fourth hole. An hour later, it was Rock hollering to onlookers down the fairway as he sliced his drive left. A team led by Dustin Johnson ultimately prevailed on the day, beating Rock and Fowler’s team through a tiebreaker. Kid Rock looks on at his drive to the 15th green during the Area 313 Celebrity Challenge during the Rocket Mortgage Classic Tuesday. (Mandi Wright/Detroit Free Press) As with wild rock ‘n’ rollers like Alice Cooper before him, golf has come to loom large in the leisure life of Kid Rock. He’s uncharacteristically modest about his abilities (“I stay in my lane”), but said he feels less pressure now than when he started playing in public events a decade ago. He was turned on to the game by his lead guitarist, Marlon Young, with encouragement from drinking buddy John Daly. “These guys were doing it so much on the road,” he said of his touring band. “And I’m sitting there in the hotel room bored. I had visited every antique shop and strip club when we were younger. So it’s something productive to do.” Moreover, Rock said, “Where else am I going to spend five hours uninterrupted with the f—— president? Who gets to do  that ?” Kid Rock was alluding to his “awesome” March round of golf with President Donald Trump, where they talked politics among “everything else.” Trump, he said, was “down-to-earth and cool.” “I always thought Obama was cool as s—. I didn’t like his politics, but I’m like: That’s one cool-ass m———–. You kind of have to be for president,” Rock said. “Trump was just off the map, I have to say. And that’s politics aside.” The May golf outing was Kid Rock’s second encounter with President Trump, following a 2017 White House dinner with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. March also included an outing where Kid Rock nailed his first hole-in-one — with golf giant Jack Nicklaus looking on. “How do you top that? That’s just my stupid luck,” Rock said, laughing. “After that, golf seems pretty much (pointless) — like, how do you top that?” Blair O’Neal high fives Kid Rock on the 16th green during The Area 313 Celebrity Challenge at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. (Mandi Wright/Detroit Free Press) Rock, who splits his time now among Nashville, Florida and his multiple Michigan homes, will be back in front of hometown audiences in September, when he plays four shows at DTE Energy Music Theatre. Don’t expect the politically charged “stump speech” that marked Rock’s shows here in 2017, when he opened Little Caesars Arena amid a mock run for U.S. Senate that much of the media and punditry took seriously. “I’m just going to play the jams and entertain,” he said of the upcoming DTE dates. Rock is a member of the Bears Club in Jupiter, Fla., founded by Nicklaus, and the two have become buddies. When Rock showed up in camouflage shorts at a pro-am event with Nicklaus, he said he offered an explanation to the 79-year-old legend: “Make no mistake, Bob Ritchie is a member this club, and he dresses appropriately.

Sunrise Movement Rallies Outside Democratic National Committee Headquarters Over Climate Change Debate Failure

Climate The Intercept

The environmental activists want the DNC to reverse its position against hosting a climate change debate for presidential candidates.
'About 100 young activists with the Sunrise Movement rallied outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters on Tuesday, demanding the party to reverse its ban on holding a climate change debate among the 2020 presidential candidates.Activists have been calling for a full presidential debate dedicated to climate change as the issue has become a top priority for voters, pushing candidates to develop and release detailed policy proposals in the process.In addition to the protest in Washington, D.C., they’re calling on supporters to sign a petition demanding a climate debate.  “It’s an emergency, and we need our leaders to act like it,” said Abby Leedy, a protester from Philadelphia, outside the DNC headquarters a few blocks from the U.S.Capitol.The DNC is not only refusing to hold a debate but threatening to bar any candidates who participate in a third-party climate debate on their own from future DNC debates.DNC Chair Tom Perez said in a Medium post earlier this month that the party would not hold any issue-specific debates because it could not allow individual candidates to dictate the terms of debate.His position came in response to Washington Gov.Jay Inslee, who has made climate change the centerpiece of his presidential campaign and has called for a climate-centric debate. “If we change our guidelines at the request of one candidate who has made climate change their campaign’s signature issue, how do we say no to the numerous other requests we’ve had?” Perez wrote. “How do we say no to other candidates in the race who may request debates focused on an issue they’ve made central to their own campaigns?” Sunrise activists rejected Perez’s framing of the issue. “When you say this is a single issue, we know that’s not true,” said Leedy. “We know that this affects every aspect of our lives.” In May , the Sunrise Movement wrapped up its nationwide tour by calling for a mass mobilization to pressure Democratic contenders to center on climate change in the 2020 election and pledge to refuse contributions from the fossil fuel industry.So far, 18 candidates have signed the environmental group’s No Fossil Fuel Money pledge, including Inslee, Pete Buttigieg, and Sens.Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker.Former Vice President Joe Biden is one of six candidates who have not yet signed . Climate change has emerged as one of the top issues voters care about ahead of the 2020 election.A recent CNN poll found a majority of likely Iowa caucus participants consider climate change to be the greatest threat against humanity.The protest is just the latest direct action taken by Sunrise, a youth-led movement incorporated in 2017.In November, the environmental activists occupied Rep.Nancy Pelosi’s office with then-incoming Rep.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to demand the creation of a select committee on climate change.Though Pelosi did not create a select committee, that protest helped launch the Green New Deal onto the national spotlight.Nearly every declared Democratic presidential candidate supports the Green New Deal resolution introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen.Ed Markey, D-Mass., and several have introduced their own plans on confronting the threat of climate change.The first round of debates will take place in Miami, Florida, this week, with 10 candidates appearing on the debate stage on Wednesday and another 10 doing so Thursday.The second round will be held on July 30 and 31 in Detroit, Michigan.  .

Rocket Mortgage Classic: Henry Ford, Jerome Bettis and the history of Detroit Golf Club

Golf Golfweek

'It was just a pasture really. A swath of untamed land north of Detroit in a part of Wayne County called Greenfield Township, where Henry Ford was born. Then William Farrand, a businessman and later a state legislator who made his money in the organ and piano business, had an idea. In 1899, just one year removed from having been bitten hard by the golf bug, Farrand gathered a group of friends and founded the Detroit Golf Club at Six Mile and Woodward Avenue. A six-hole course was built with an initiation fee of $10. Dues were another $10. And just like that, two sawbucks bought you entry into the annals of Michigan golf history. Philanthropist Horace Rackham donated $100,000 to buy more land in 1914 and Donald Ross, on the brink of golf architectural fame, was hired to build two 18-hole courses that opened in 1916. In 1918, Albert Kahn’s clubhouse that now measures nearly 80,000 square feet was completed. One hundred and one years later, Detroit Golf Club is about to write a new chapter in its history when it hosts the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the first PGA Tour event in Detroit. The golf club is dripping in history and pedigree at nearly every turn. But to former club president Keith Studzinski, it was the foresight and vision Farrand and early club members showed that draws his admiration the most. “History wise, that’s the most impressive to me,” Studzinski said. “To have that kind of vision to buy the property, to build the 36-hole facility with this clubhouse, which is 100 years ago, that to me is most impressive.” The clubhouse and the Ross courses are all but relics now on the PGA Tour, markers of a bygone era chewed up by more modern designs and cutting-edge facilities. But for one week, the golf world’s glance will turn toward Detroit Golf Club and perhaps learn something about its history and pedigree. Ford became a member in 1915. His son, Edsel, also was a member. Jerome Bettis, a Detroit native and Hall of Fame running back, became a member, and so did former mayor Dennis Archer. Andy Glassberg, president of the Detroit Golf Club, right, talks to a club member during a tour last week. (Mandi Wright/Detroit Free Press) Ross’ brother, Alec Ross, was the 1907 U.S. Open champion, and he served as the club’s head pro from 1918 to 1945. He was followed by Horton Smith, the first Masters champion, who remained the club’s head pro until his death in 1963. Detroit native Walter Burkemo, winner of the 1953 PGA championship, followed Smith. Edgar Guest, who was once Michigan’s poet laureate and started out as a journalist with the Free Press, was a member. He wrote odes to the towering flag pole near the first tee and to Alec Ross. At the head of a table in the club’s Champions Grill, he is honored with the prominent placing of one of his poems. On the first hole of the course — which is really the eighth hole of the club’s North Course — there’s a broken and gnarled oak tree about 80 yards up the right side of the fairway. American Indians bent the tree as a sapling as a marker for the trail leading from Detroit to Pontiac. In 1938, the club placed a marker on a large stone at the base of the tree to commemorate its importance to Detroit’s earliest residents. It’s a pity the public won’t get see much of the history that adorns the interior of the clubhouse. The artifacts that have been collected, such as Smith’s putter and various trophies. The impressive marble floors near the main entrance that lead to gleaming white marble staircases. This week, more history will be made at Detroit Golf Club, although we should remember the beginning of this week’s story started more than century ago. “Just the way it was put together in five years from 1914 to 1919 if you look at that period,” Studzinski said. “They hired Donald Ross, they built a 36-hole facility, which is the first one he built if you look back at his records, and to put homes around it, which is what they did to create this community back in this time frame.” \t\t\t\t Related Longtime AP sports writer Ed Shearer - covered Masters, football, Olympics - dies at 82 The list of top 18 money winners in golf history has plenty of surprises Forecaddie: Bagpipes out, Irish flute in for NBC’s Portrush coverage Justin Suh signs with Puma but foregoes club deal, a growing trend on PGA Tour U.S. Senior Open players receive special perks at Notre Dame this week'

Detroit Golf Club workers threaten strike before Rocket Mortgage Classic

Golf Golfweek

'The employees who are making Detroit Golf Club a playable PGA Tour-caliber golf course this week are calling for the end of negotiations and a new contract. If it doesn’t happen by the time the Rocket Mortgage Classic tees off on Thursday, then the union says it’s willing to strike. “Come (Thursday) when this tournament starts,” said Kevin Moore, president of local union, Teamsters Local 299, and executive board member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, “we’re going to do what we have to do. Demonstrations, strikes, whatever is at our disposal.” A seven-member group of mechanics and groundskeepers represented by Teamsters Local 299 saw their contract expire in 2018. The club had been asking for a contract that included a “3% pay raise, health care relief and job security language,” according to a news release on Monday. Detroit Golf Club president Andrew Glassberg said in a statement Monday the club offered a contract with benefits and salaries 4% higher per year than the current contract and a 17% increase over the duration. Moore says Glassberg’s claims aren’t true, and that after Glassberg went through a federal mediator, the workers were offered less than the 3% raise the union had asked for. The union filed its unfair labor practice charge against the golf club in May, citing a “failure to negotiate in good faith,” according to Monday’s release. Glassberg walked out of negotiations with the union on June 14. Andy Glassberg, president of the Detroit Golf Club, says he’s ready to reach a deal with the union. (Mandi Wright/Detroit Free Press) “We believe our offer is more than fair,” Glassberg said in a statement on Monday. “We are ready to reach a resolution with the union, as we have since the contract expired roughly one year ago. Unfortunately, the union cancelled bargaining sessions, delayed the negotiating process, and chose this historic event to make its statement.” Moore claims the club offered a $500 one-time signing bonus, but Teamsters countered with a 45 cent (3%) hourly pay increase which was denied. He also says the the golf club forced workers to take a 15-to-20% wage reduction in 2015, then increased the out-of-pocket healthcare expense nearly $600 a month for family medical. Moore said management switched from the Michigan Teamsters health plan into a Detroit Golf Club-sponsored health plan. “It was a garbage plan,” Moore said on Monday, “and they shoved the workers’ expenses down their throat.” Detroit Golf Club workers have over 170 years of combined professional coursework, according to a release from Teamsters Local 299 sent on Thursday. On the course Monday, groundskeeper George D. Breault said he is a union member but was advised not to talk about negotiations. “We’re happy about the revitalization of Detroit,” Moore said, “but the way they want to represent these members is absolutely horrendous.” Detroit Golf Club is hosting the Rocket Mortgage Classic this week, the first PGA Tour event in Detroit. It’s the first time the tour has been in Michigan since the Buick Open’s final year in Grand Blanc in 2009. Moore said nobody from Rocket Mortgage, the tournament title sponsor, or the PGA Tour has reached out to him, but he’s also unsure if the issue is even on their radar. Moore said in addition to the seven full-time workers, there are 40 temporary workers. “The eyes of the world are upon us and this golf course, like the City of Detroit, has never shined brighter,” Glassberg said. “Unfortunately, the Teamsters have chosen this magnificent event that celebrates Detroit and supports local non-profit organizations to score political points for their bosses in Washington.” “We are proud of our workforce,” he continued. “We are lucky to have such great groundskeepers and mechanics working the Rocket Mortgage Classic and throughout the year — and are determined to continue compensating our team with above-market pay and benefits.” \t\t\t\t Related Steph Curry to unveil his Under Armour Range Unlimited Golf collection With Chez Reavie victory, above-30 crowd continues to flourish on PGA Tour in 2018-19 Man hospitalized after golf cart flips over on Ohio course NCAA says California schools could be banned from championships if bill isn't dropped Golf course dispute leads to fatal shooting, fire in California'
