Locally owned Roehm’s Tent Rentals & More announced they are open for business.
The business offers tent rentals, tables, chairs, and more.
“We serve the communities within a 20 mile radius of New Boston. I am here to accommodate the best I can so if you do not see a package that fits your event please feel free to call,” said owner Paula Roehm. “I do offer some discount programs to help you save on your rental.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services released an order today reopening indoor dining begenning Monday, Feb. 1.
The order will allow for indoor dining at restaurants with certain requirements; concessions at casinos, movie theaters and stadiums; personal services requiring mask removal; and non-residential gatherings of up to 10 people from two households.
The new order will last three weeks, until Sunday, Feb. 21.
“The pause has worked. The efforts we have made together to protect our families, frontline workers and hospitals have dramatically reduced cases and we have saved lives. Now, we are confident that starting February 1, restaurants can resume indoor dining with safety measures in place,” said Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “Michigan continues to be a national leader in fighting this virus, and we must continue working to keep it that way. One of the most important things Michiganders can do is to make a plan to get the safe and effective vaccine when it’s available to you. And as always, mask up and maintain six feet of social distancing. We will end this pandemic together.”
“We are pleased to see the improvements in case rates, hospitalizations and percent positivity that have allowed us to reopen more activities,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health at MDHHS. “However, we must remain vigilant, especially since we now have a new more easily transmitted variant of this virus present in our state. This is not the time to let our guard down and Michiganders should minimize their risk by avoiding gatherings, wearing masks properly, social distancing and making a plan to get their vaccine when it is their turn.”
MDHHS says it has been closely monitoring three metrics for stabilization or declines over the past several weeks.
Michigan continues to see improvements in these metrics which has allowed for additional relaxing of protocols and reopening of activities. In recent days:
• Hospital capacity dedicated to COVID-19 patients has been in seven-week decline, with current capacity at 9.9% for beds with COVID-19 patients. Peaked at 19.6% on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
• Overall case rates: Currently at 225 cases per million. Peaked at 740 cases per million on Saturday, Nov. 14, plateaued after a decline to 239 on Friday, Dec. 25 and has been in decline for 11 days.
• Positivity rate: currently at 6.8% and declining.
Restaurants and bars will be allowed to reopen at 25% capacity with up to 100 people.
Tables must be six feet apart with no more than six people per table. Outdoor tents with four sides are permitted under these same rules.
Bars and restaurants must close by 10 p.m., and contact information must be collected from diners for contact tracing purposes.
“Today’s announcement is possible because of our progress over the last two months,” said Robert Gordon, MDHHS director. “Even so, the science is clear that unmasked, indoor activities like dining and drinking are still a source of high risk around COVID-19. The safest course remains to support your favorite restaurant with carryout, delivery or outdoor dining. If individuals choose to eat out, there are two things they can do to make it much safer: go out only with members of their own household and choose a restaurant participating in the MI COVID-19 Safer Dining certification program.”
The voluntary MI COVID-19 Safer Dining program allows food service establishments to become certified by having their ventilation system inspected and submitting their inspection report to the state indicating they are optimizing airflow. Once certified, businesses will be featured on the Michigan.gov/covidsaferdining website and receive a copy of their certification to post at their establishment to alert diners of their participation.
Funding is proposed for food service establishments to participate as part of the $10 million included in the recent supplemental budget request for restaurant supports administered by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Two webinars will be hosted on Monday, Jan. 25 to provide additional information about the Safer Dining certification program – one at noon for HVAC contractors interested in conducting inspections and one at 3 p.m. for food service establishments interested in becoming certified. More information will be available at Michigan.gov/covidsaferdining.
Indoor residential and non-residential gatherings are limited to 10 people and two households. MDHHS continues to urge families to avoid indoor gatherings or to pick a single other household to interact with consistent with guidance already released by the department.
Families are encouraged to stay home as much as possible to maintain momentum and to protect loved ones, and are also encoured to wear masks in public.
Amazon officially announced their footprint in Huron Township on Monday, dubbing the area off Vining Road “Pinnacle Park.”
The massive warehouses on Vining Road where the defunct Pinnacle Race Course once stood will be fulfillment and sorting warehouses for Amazon, according to the company worth over $1 trillion.
“Huron Township welcomes the creation of approximately 1,000 jobs the Amazon facilities offer. This Amazon project will serve to jump-start additional economic growth that will make up a much larger comprehensive mixed use development planned for this area,” said David Glaab, Huron Township supervisor. “This investment will serve to bolster and compliment the efforts of the Detroit Region Aerotropolis in its mission to attract advanced manufacturing, next generation mobility and emerging technologies to this region.”
Amazon says 1,000 jobs will be available soon at the Huron Township locations.
“With this deal, we are able to appropriately redevelop the Pinnacle property – adding roughly 1,000 new jobs for local residents while expanding our tax base at the same time,” said Wayne County Executive Warren Evans. “When I took office, I made it a priority to repurpose the land in a more productive way that made sense for the location. Working in collaboration with Huron Township leaders and Detroit Aerotropolis, my team identified a new approach for the site that was both economically viable and consistent with the community’s vision. I’m pleased that Amazon agrees that Pinnacle is a prime location for a world-class logistics and distribution facility that will put Wayne County residents to work.”
In addition, Amazon has announced other key developments in the Metro Detroit area.
In 2021, Amazon’s new fulfillment and sortation centers in Detroit include:
Detroit – Amazon Robotics Fulfillment Center.
Hazel Park – Sub-Same-Day Fulfillment Center.
Pinnacle Park – Amazon “XLFC” Fulfillment Center.
Pinnacle Park – Amazon Sort Center.
Plymouth – Amazon Sort Center.
Pontiac – Amazon Robotics Fulfillment Center.
At one of the five new sites, Amazon plans to open a new 823,000 square-foot fulfillment center, creating 1,200 new full-time jobs when it launches in 2021.
The site will be the fourth fulfillment center in the state using Amazon robotics to help associates pick, pack and ship smaller items to customers.
The other four sites include a same-day facility, XL fulfillment center and two sortation centers that play critical roles in the fulfillment of large products and “middle mile,” or the process of transporting packages between Amazon sites before last mile delivery for customers.
Packages are shipped to sort centers from Amazon Air hubs, gateways and fulfillment centers to be sorted by zip code before being transported to delivery stations or last-mile delivery partners for customer delivery
“We’re excited to be expanding our network to better serve our customers in the great city of Detroit,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We are grateful for the strong support we’ve received from local and state leaders as we broaden our footprint throughout Michigan. We look forward to bringing more than 2,000 good jobs to Metro Detroit and contributing positively to the community.”
Amazon currently operates 10 sites in Detroit that support customer fulfillment and delivery operations, including four facilities that launched in 2020.
Amazon says it offers a $15 per hour wage, and that the company offers full-time employees comprehensive benefits including full medical, vision, and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50 percent match starting on day one.
The company said it also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility to support their growing families.
AMAZON IN MICHIGAN
Since 2010, Amazon says it has created more than 13,500 jobs in Michigan and invested more than $2.5 billion across the state, including infrastructure and compensation to its employees.
Amazon’s says its investments have contributed more than $2.1 billion in GDP to the Michigan economy and have helped create over 10,000 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires – from jobs in construction and logistics to professional services.
More than 42,000 independent authors and small and medium businesses in Michigan are selling to customers in Amazon’s store, creating thousands of additional jobs across the state.

What’s the best time to get the 2021 Huron-Clinton Metroparks annual park pass? Right now. That’s because the parks system is providing a special discounted offer of just $35 for annual passes purchased by Dec. 31, 2020. That one pass can be used to access each of the 13 Metroparks across Southeast Michigan all year long.
Starting January 1, the 2021 Metroparks annual pass will cost $40 for residents ($29 for Seniors 62+) of the five counties served – Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne – or $45 for non-residents ($34 for Seniors 62+). But now through the end of the year, everyone can purchase their 2021 pass for just $35, or $24 for Seniors 62 and older.
Additionally, any 2021 passes can be used immediately, even before the new year. That’s up to seven weeks of extra value with the same pass.
“Purchasing an annual pass is the best way to experience everything our diverse Metroparks have to offer,” said Amy McMillan, director of the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. “Plus, it’s a great value. Nothing else matches it in terms of what you get and how affordable it can be to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, which the COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced just how important that can be. It truly is an investment that keeps on giving all year long.”
McMillan also noted the new and improved online shopping experience, designed to offer a more streamlined customer experience. Those purchasing an annual pass online this year will be asked to create an account. They can then use that same login information when registering for programs, purchasing gift cards, reserving picnic shelters, and more.
Passes be purchased at www.metroparks.com/shop or at any Metroparks toll booth. The park offices remain closed to the public at this time until further notice.
The 13 Huron-Clinton Metroparks include Delhi, Dexter-Huron, Hudson Mills, Huron Meadows, Indian Springs, Kensington, Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, Lower Huron, Oakwoods, Stony Creek, Willow and Wolcott Mill Metroparks.
