Michigan Representative Douglas Geiss and Others Testify About the Need for Online Legal Notices

Michigan Representative Douglas Geiss and Others Testify About the Need for Online Legal Notices Image by Michigan Municipal League (MML) The Michigan Municipal League testified Wednesday, May 12, 2010, before the Michigan State House Judiciary Committee in support of bills that would allow communities to post legal notices online instead of in newspapers. This measure would allow for greater transparency in government because more people would be able to view the legal notices and it would save Michigan communities millions of dollars each year. Although no vote was taken during the hearing, the committee seemed receptive to the bills and the arguments made by the Michigan Municipal League’s Samantha Jones Harkins and Ann Arbor City Clerk Jacqueline Beaudry. The package of bills were a bipartisan effort supported by Rep. Douglas Geiss, D-Taylor, Rep. Joseph Haveman, R-Holland, Rep. Pete Lund, R-Shelby Township, Rep. Sharon Tyler, R-Niles, Rep. Richard Hammel, D-Mt. Morris Township, and numerous other lawmakers. Also speaking in support of the bills were Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey and Delhi Township Clerk Evan Hope. Attending the meeting in support of the bills included officials with the Michigan Association of Municipal Clerks, the Michigan Townships Association, the Michigan Association of Counties and many other groups.

Staging Old Masters, Spring 2009

Staging Old Masters, Spring 2009 Image by The Pulitzer Held in conjunction with the Old Masters exhibition at the Pulitzer, this is an innovative program in which former prisoners use the exploration of theatre and art to help develop skills for their future lives and employment, while simultaneously building bridges between a broader audience and Old Masters artworks. The participants, all of whom are graduates of Employment Connection, were chosen to attend a six-week class led by Agnes Wilcox of Prison Performing Arts and held alternately at the Pulitzer and Washington University. Beginning with the exploration of Old Masters and their histories and stories, and continuing with a study of writing, movement, voice and diction, and other performance skills, the program culminates in the creation and performance of short theatre pieces based on the students’ interaction with the works featured in the exhibition. Performances will be held every weekend throughout the month of April at the Pulitzer.
