The Huron High School state champ bowling team were invited to Lansing Tuesday by State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township).

“I was honored to host the champions of Huron’s bowling team here at the Capitol this week as they celebrated their state championship,” Camilleri said.

“It is always terrific to see the youth in our community achieve success; and in the world of high school sports, there is nothing greater than bringing home a state championship for your school. I’m so proud of this tremendous group for their hard work and dedication to their team and I hope this victory serves as a reminder for them of the greatness that lies within each and every one of them.”

Camilleri selected to join national network of pro-growth progressive state and local elected officials


Posted April 17, 2019 — 10:00 a.m. EST 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Tuesday, state Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) was selected as one of 20 leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders), a national network of state and local elected officials working to enact pro-growth progressive, innovative solutions in their communities.

“As community leaders, we have a responsibility to look toward the future and enact policy to ensure we leave our environment, economy and education system better than we found it,” said Rep. Camilleri. “I am honored to join this esteemed group of progressive leaders from across the country as we work together to create an America where no one is held back because of their background, their faith or their financial situation.”

Since Rep. Camilleri joined the Legislature in 2017, he has stood as a steadfast advocate for public education, environmental protection and workers across the state, all while advocating for increased government transparency and accountability. Most recently, legislation introduced by Rep. Camilleri – House Bill 4016 – to subject the governor’s office to the Freedom of Information Act and the Legislature to a new Legislative Open Records Act, passed the House with unanimous support and now awaits a hearing in the Senate.

Rep. Camilleri’s commitment to ensuring Michigan’s economy provides for working families across the state also drove his nomination to NewDEAL. His recent introduction of legislation in the “Michigan Jobs First Package,” a group of bills that would give preference to Michigan companies in state contracts, demonstrates his dedication to moving our state toward a better future for all.

The NewDEAL brings together leaders focused on expanding opportunity, helping them develop and spread innovative ideas to spur economic growth that is broadly-earned and sustainable. Most importantly, the organization facilitates the exchange of ideas among its members and connects them with other pro-growth progressive political, policy, and private sector leaders.

A man and woman were arrested after they allegedly entered unlocked cars in the Falkirk subdivision in the early morning hours of April 15 and stole items from inside.

21-year-old Angel Lorena-Suzzan Beck of Milan and Kenneth Wesley Moore, 19, from Detroit, were taken into custody in connection with the larcenies.

Beck, who had a warrant for her arrest, was arrested Monday.

Moore was taken into custody Tuesday after a police investigation into the larcenies.

Everette Robbins, Huron Township director of public safety, said the police department responded to multiple reports of larceny from cars that occurred during the early morning hours Monday in the Falkirk Subdivision.

All of the vehicles involved in the incident were unlocked.

“In this case, the suspects spent approximately 30 minutes in the neighborhood looking for unlocked cars. Based on neighborhood video that we have reviewed, they bypassed numerous cars that we locked and moved on to easier targets. We would like to remind our residents to lock their homes, vehicles and outbuildings,” Robbins said.

“This arrest was made possible through the help of some very vigilant neighbors in that neighborhood. As always, if you see something that looks out of place, call and report it.”

A New Boston resident offers locally made engraved wooden items that are hand crafted then sold online.

Gordon Stump owns Huron Custom Carvings, a business that specializes in solid American black walnut signs, plaques and gifts.

“Our walnut is from reclaimed downed trees,” Stump said. “The logs are locally milled and dried in a kiln using the sawdust from the sawmill for heat. Walnut is the premier American hardwood perfect for that special person or event.”

In addition to the carving business, Stump also owns Heritage Music Products, which ships wooden music products far and wide.

“Heritage Music Products is best known for solid walnut musical instrument stands sold on Amazon,” Stump said.

Stump said that having relationships with local sawmills allows him to offer hardwoods used for both businesses at softwood prices.

“Huron Custom Carving is situated to take advantage of our dedicated logo CNC router to offer small/medium custom signage and plaques,” he said.

Former president of the Detroit Federation of Musicians Local 5, Stump spent 30 years as the first trumpet player at the Fisher, Masonic, Birmingham and former Pine Knob Theaters.

While all work is guaranteed by Stump, “Wood is wood so tight knots, planer breakout and saw marks can occur,” he said.

Both woodworking ventures do business as Heritage Woodworking of New Boston, Michigan.

A 21-year-old Milan woman was arrested Monday after she allegedly stole items from unlocked cars in Huron Township.

Angel Lorena-Suzzan Beck, who was wanted on an unrelated felony warrant, stole items out of several unlocked cars, according to police.

Everette Robbins, Huron director of public safety, said the police department responded to multiple reports of larceny from cars that occurred during the early morning hours Monday from the Falkirk Subdivision.

All of the vehicles involved in the incident were unlocked.

A second suspect was able to get away, but Robbins said they are actively searching for this person.

“In this case, the suspects spent approximately 30 minutes in the neighborhood looking for unlocked cars. Based on neighborhood video that we have reviewed, they bypassed numerous cars that we locked and moved on to easier targets.

Police warn of alleged fake officer report

Article posted Saturday, April 13 — 12 p.m.

Huron Township police posted on social media Saturday morning a warning for drivers to be vigilant following a possible fake police officer report in a nearby community.

Here is the statement from police:

This post was posted on local social media sites this morning. The Brownstown Police Department received a report regarding this situation this morning. They are investigating the incident. Although Huron Township has not received any similar incidents, it is obviously very close to our community and something that we want everyone to be aware of. Although stated to be an Escalade, further investigation indicates it may be any type of dark SUV. If an unmarked SUV attempts to stop you, please pull into a lighted area and call 911 to verify. Huron Township Officers will be in full uniform.

It also appears there were similar incidents in Brooklyn, MI recently. We are working closely with the Brownstown Police Department and will keep you updated as we receive information.

Please be vigilant, aware of your surroundings, and take care of each other.”
