A Pain In The Road

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $30 million to construct a new interchange on I-96 at 36th Street in Kent County. The project also includes the reconstruction of 2.1 miles of I-96, drainage improvements and detention basins, retaining walls, wetlands, traffic signals, signing, and pavement markings.
Benefits:The construction of this interchange will serve motorists for many years to come. The construction of this interchange will improve access to the airport and help alleviate traffic and congestion on other state and local roads.
Time span:April 2005 to October 2006
It is a big hassle commuting back and forth to school everyday. Luckily, I have reliable transportation. With the winter trying to come to an end the streets are terrible. There are potholes out there bigger than my car tires. That can cause major damageto your car. The traffic in the morning is also trerribile. My class doesn't start until 8:30 a.m and I leave my house at 8:00. I think that the major cause of traffic jams is roadway construction. Most people don't understand that if you are aware of the constructionand slow down at constrction routes accidents won'e be caused and traffic can move more effectively.

Superbowl Safety

As the Superbowl rapidly approaches I would just like to say stay safe. Have fun at the paties and concerts but be careful, watch your back, and act responsibly. Lets give Detroit a good reputation for a change and lets all have a good time.

Why I Look Up To Martin Luther King Jr.

The article I decided to choose is called,
"Why I Look Up To Matin Luther King Jr." By Queen Latifah
The message that I am receiving from this article is that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has played an important role throughout Queen Latifah's life. He has paved the way for her to be where she is today. To many people he is a hero.
The method that my ad uses is that Queen Latifah is writing the article herself instead of having an interviewer there writnig down her every word.
I think that the reson that this article is delivered the way it is, is so that we as readers can undertand that she is feeling this and writing this herself. These are her words and this isn't anything made up by some journalist.
