Residents filed into City Hall at 6 pm to participate in the discussion around the designation of Ypsilanti as a disproportionately impacted community based on previous marijuana convictions and poverty rate. The purpose of the conversation, according to Somerville, was to create an agenda for the city council’s first conversation regarding recreational marijuana regulations.

The Kitchen Film Review

Last Updated 20 hours ago

A Crime Drama that packs a Classical Punch.

The Kitchen is a film that stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elizabeth Moss as three women who, after years of playing the stereotypical women's role in their marriages, are now challenged with stepping up after their husbands are arrested in a robbery. Not your typical crime drama, we see three “Femme Fatales" as our leads mixed up in the nitty-gritty realities of crime. Which, in my opinion, serves as a high for the film to see the growth among the women as they turn into a force not to be reckoned with.
