'I'm an artist'

Pat Lindemann paints the big picture

by Lawrence Cosentino
“The Great Lakes basin has 20 percent of the available water in the whole world,” Lindemann said. “This is a major responsibility.” He blinked, as if distracted from a telescope trained on the Andromeda galaxy by a rat scurrying across the observatory. “You can’t get here and try to manage that through name-calling, innuendoes, threats and all the other crap that a lot of politicians like to pull, including Grebner.”

Emil's building for sale -- or is it?

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Presumably, selling the building would mean the end of Emil’s. But when contacted for comment, Paul Grescowle, the grandson of the original owners who runs the day-to-day operations at Emil’s, wouldn’t confirm anything. He said it is the building next door which is for sale, and that is owned by his mother, who also owns Emil’s itself. He also asked that we refrain from running this story, implying that it would stir up much ado about nothing. Can’t do that, but I will remind everyone about the awesome all-you-can-eat spaghetti-and-meatballs on Tuesdays.

An unconventional script

by Kyle Melinn
Lindemann is the 20-year incumbent running for a sixth term managing the county’s numerous drains. It’s a deceivingly powerful position that comes with the ability to blow up million-dollar developments or tax entire communities without a public vote.

Eye candy of the week

by Amanda Harrell-Seyburn
It’s easy to forget how many unique features there are in our communities when you travel the same routes day in and day out. If it isn’t on a main corridor or located right next door to work or home we miss it — out of sight, out of mind.

'We need help. It's every day'

A grim season for a neighborhood of refugees in south Lansing who are the targets of ongoing vandalism, theft and physical intimidation. LPD: 'This is big as far as attention-wise right now.'

by Andy Balaskovitz

Zeppelin's Music Hall

by Allison M. Berryman
One of Malott’s main objectives in opening Zeppelin’s Music Hall was to give local teenagers a place to experience the Lansing music scene in a secure environment. It is the only venue in Lansing that gives teen bands an opportunity to perform for a live audience.
