From thriving Motor City to the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history, Detroit has become the nation's cautionary tale. But what led to the fateful day of the filing, and how did the city survive this crisis?Journalist Nathan Bomey delivers the inside story of Detroit's decline and the people who fought to save it against impossible odds: governor Rick Snyder, a self-proclaimed nerd; emergency manager Kevyn Orr, a lawyer with singular dedication; judge Steven Rhodes, the city's conscience; and retirees who fought to ensure that Detroit kept its promises. In a tightly reported narrative, Bomey reveals the tricky path to the Grand Bargain that would determine the fate of pensioners, city services, and the world-class Detroit Institute of Arts, which faced the threat of liquidation. Detroit Resurrected offers a sweeping account of financial ruin, backroom intrigue, and political rebirth in the struggle to reinvent one of America's great cities.

Outside, where the wind is blowing, we see the world on nature's terms, and we see that it is severely endangered. Turning inward, we seek a sense of connection with nature that could perhaps help us through the current environmental crisis. In this book, some of the most observant Americans of our day explore these outer and inner worlds in powerful pieces that show the vitality and range of contemporary nature writing. John Hay's A Faire Bay, an original collection of thoughts on the pollution of the Chesapeake, opens the book, and Edward Hoagland's A Year as It Turns, a group of short seasonal pieces that originally appeared as editorials in the New York Times, serves as the conclusion. Some of the other authors represented here include Rick Bass, Marcia Bonta, Charles Bowden, Jean Craighead George, Barry Lopez, Gary Snyder, and Terry Tempest Williams. Whether swimming with dolphins in the Florida Keys or stalking deer with mountain lions, these authors experience and reflect on the terms nature sets and the terms we set for nature. With them, we discover the beauty of the jack pine in the Boundary Waters, uncover the hidden beauty of Sonoran cacti, explore the very alive world of a Pennsylvania winter, visit the startling silences of the Canadian River Gorge in the Southwest, experience the breath-taking world of life on arctic ice, and view Venus at daybreak from the Grand Canyon. These are stories of place, and of family and friends, both human and nonhuman. They are tales of understanding and coming to terms with the world around us.
Rick Snyder has long called for an overhaul to the state's energy policy, but it wasn't until he got personally involved in brokering a compromise that the legislature was able to deliver a final product to his desk. Snyder met personally with House and Senate leaders, business representatives and utility companies throughout Wednesday and early into Thursday morning, emerging from a House Republican caucus meeting at 5:30 a. m. after working the issue... "I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. And let me put it this way, I didn't pull any all-nighters when I was in college, and I did last night. It's worth it," Snyder told reporters after the deal was approved by both chambers. The House broke to give members time withe the compromise bills, and came back to vote on it later Thursday afternoon. Ultimately, it was new language around energy choice -- the 10 percent of Michigan's electric market that is allowed to use alternative energy suppliers instead of their incumbent utilities -- that helped push the package over the edge. Energy overhaul sails through House, preserves energy choice. Mike Nofs, who chairs the Senate Energy and Technology Committee, credited Gov. Rick Snyder with hitting on the compromise when talking with reporters late Wednesday night. "To be honest with you, it was the Governor who came up with the good idea," said Nofs, R-Battle Creek. "We changed the question, in some ways," Snyder said. "So part of it was coming up with amendment ideas that people hadn't thought about before that sort of addressed and put in a good balance to say with respect to choice people and respect to people from the regulated side, we found a way to bridge... Ultimately, the compromise made changes to energy efficiency, electric choice and solar net metering provisions that satisfied almost everybody. The main bill, Senate Bill 437 , passed the House 79-28 and the Senate confirmed the changes 33-4. The bill focusing on renewable energy, Senate Bill 438 , passed the House 76-31 and the Senate confirmed the changes 33-4. Snyder toured the House... The concepts behind the bills that were ultimately passed swirled around Lansing for a couple years before the bills materializing in 2015. Snyder wanted to get them passed by the end of that year. When that deadline came and went, he eyed the first half of 2016. When that passed, the end of the year -- after which new House members come in and would have to be re-educated on the complex issue -- became his target. He told reporters last week it was his number one priority in the lame-duck session. "That would be the top of my list in terms of issues, would be the energy package. I've made that clear for some time," he said. "You've got a pretty safe bet on this one," he said.
