Sampson & Matilda Stephens. He was a Civil War Veteran and survivor of Andersonville Confederate Prison. He was captured by the Confederates at Rogersville, Tennessee, in 1863 and was imprisoned at Belle Isle in Richmond, VA. He was later transferred to Andersonville Prison in Southern Georgia and on to Florence, South Carolina near the end of the war. During the War, Sampson suffered from scurvy, starvation, and "Swamp Fever" from which he never fully recovered and was plagued with poor health the rest of his life. Sampson & Matilda Stephens are buried in the King Cemetery in the Riverton/Beatytown Community.

Packed for Detroit, that may have been a record. It took less than 24 hours. If you're in Detroit on Friday, Belle Isle is the place to see the IMSA and Indy Car series, FOR FREE. My main thought leaving Speedway in May. As much as we screamed about traditions, the Grand Prix was great, and one of the best crowds I've seen in the stands for the 500 in a while. But IMS has still got some series work to do to build on it.
Next Tuesday, get some yummy Chili's for lunch or dinner and 10% of the proceeds will go to benefit Pit Bull Rescue! There are several Chili's locations around the metro participating: Belle Isle, S.

So it's officially official, I received my media confirmation for the 2014 Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix Jerry and I will once again be covering it together for the Motor City Project, The Oakland Press and some of the teams as well.

Factoid time! There are 14 islands in the lake, the largest of which is Belle Isle (formerly known as Longholme). In 1250 it was the seat of the Lord of the Manor and a Royalist stronghold during the Civil War. In 1774 an unusual circular house was erected on the island, which was sold (along with the island) to the wealthy Curwen family who renamed the island after their daughter, Isabella. The lake has long been used as a highway for the transport of stone, minerals, charcoal and woollen cloth. A ferry service has operated across the narrowest point of the lake (Bowness to Ferry House on the western shore) since the 15th century. The earliest craft were large rowing boats that carried people and animals, with passengers expected to help with the rowing. In 1870 the first ferry to run on underwater cables was introduced; a 20 minute service now provided by the modern Mallard ferry. Windermere, originally a small hamlet called Birthwaite, came to prominence with the completion of the railway link from Ken ...

Feedback: Readers want to know what's wrong with making Belle Isle safer? - Detroit City Council President Brenda...
Editorial: Visitors deserve a safe Belle Isle Some members of the Detroit City Council aren’t happy about the significant increase of police presence on Belle Isle now that it’s a state park. Yet the police are addressing one of the primary complaints Detroiters had about the island before the state took it over: It wasn’t always a comfortable place for family leisure and recreation. While state officials do need to show sensitivity during the park’s transition, and it isn’t necessary to turn Belle Isle into a police state, ensuring that visitors are obeying speed limits and other laws will make the park safer for everyone who arrives to enjoy the island. City Council President Brenda Jones says troopers need sensitivity training, and she has repeated social media reports that hundreds of arrests have been made on the island, which came under state control Feb. 10. But Michigan State Police numbers paint a different picture. Troopers have reported 55 arrests out of 329 traffic stops from Feb. 1 ...

Jeffrey Lewis 9 secs · Good Afternoon My Sister's and Brother's, My Detroit Family, I 'am sure by now many if not most of you know of what's happening on Belle Isle. A Police state has taken place on Belle Isle our park that the City of Detroit still owns but like many other City properties and assets now the City has no control over. Why? I 'll start with this first, why? I ask here's my answer and then i'll get back to the main subject. Now in the last ELECTION only 13.5% of the registered Voters, voted in the Election for Mayor and new City Council Members, meaning out of 579,000 registered Voters less then 70,000 of us Voted in that Election and anyone who has followed election results over the 40 years you have found the numbers have been as low as 9%, meaning even fewer of us Voted in troughs elections. Why? well only you know why you did not vote as well as all the other Detroit Citizens who did not vote and who do not vote. So you have to start by looking in your mirror and seeing what, why and h ...

IF you're from Detroit . . . You used a pillowcase to go 'begging' on Halloween, and you yelled, 'Help the Poor!' at every door. ('Help the poor, my pants are tore, I need some money to buy some more.') * You remember what Devil's Night used to be. * You remember the huge elm trees forming lush green tunnels over many Detroit streets in the summertime. Or when they'd come around to spray and tell you to stay in the house. And, the autumn smell of burning leaves, after you'd rake huge piles to the curb for burning. * You remember honking your horn as you went through the tunnel to Belle Isle at the end of East Grand Blvd . where it went under Jefferson Avenue, even though the sign at the entrance read 'Don't Sound Horn.' * You remember the larger-than-life Ambassador Bridge . And you remember the submarine that was tied up at the Brodhead Naval Armory alongside the Belle Isle Bridge. * You took a class trip or a moonlight cruise on the Bob-Lo boat with Captain Bob-Lo. * You remember running home from sch . ...

Lansing – Tucked into this week's supplemental spending bill containing $215 million more for Michigan roads is a small line item of considerable interest to Detroit families and the volunteer group Friends of Rouge Park. The bill signed into law Friday appropriates $300,000 for a 1,181-acre park in western Detroit that straddles the Rouge River near the Dearborn border. This tiny portion of the $330-million overall bill – about 0.1 percent in all – results from a working relationship forged between Detroit Democratic state Rep. Harvey Santana and Republican House Speaker Jase Bolger of Marshall and is being heralded as example of bipartisanship in an otherwise GOP-dominated Legislature. "The speaker came through and kept his word," Santana said Friday. "When it all came together, it was an emotional time." In late October, the Motor City lawmaker led Bolger on a tour of areas of the city when debate about Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr's plan to make Belle Isle a state park was commanding attention in ...

IMPORTANT INFO: To those that are not aware this in early voting March 3-7 and March 11 is official election day for District 1 and 7 which affects Belle Isle City Council. Some of you may not be aware (they try hard to keep you unaware) that the Belle Isle leadership has made it precedence to do whatever they want without notice to citizens. Lake Conway Wipeout they have made impossible to hold, this is the same reason Pine Castle Pioneer Days were not in Pine Castle this year. They make policy changes and astronomical public safety cost. District 1 has two new good candidates - just DO NOT vote for any incumbents . District 7 vote Sue Nielsen (NOT Eric Spaulding). The mayor of BI is telling citizens if they like their police dept and Charter school they need to vote for Eric, this is a complete scare tactic and not based in truth. I know this is for FB, but it is CRITICAL people be made aware and show up for the voting. More information can be found here The Belle Isle Sun has good information if you ca ...
Dr. Elmer Harp has made vital contributions to the archaeological and ethnographic studies of Newfoundland and Labrador. Now professor emeritus of anthropology at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, he conducted the formative work that made the prehistory of Newfoundland and Labrador so important in our archaeological record. Dr. Harp�s career has included numerous expeditions to the Central and Eastern Canadian Arctic, and work in Alaska. In 1949-1950 he began his archaeological field research in the Eastern Subarctic where he surveyed the Strait of Belle Isle area, and discovered and tested several Paleo-Eskimo sites on the west coast of Newfoundland and the Archaic Indian sites in southern Labrador. Dr. Harp then spent time as a senior Fulbright Research Scholar in Copenhagen, at the Danish National Museum in 1959, after which he returned to Newfoundland and excavated in Port au Choix, Phillip�s Garden on Cape Riche. Dr. Harp�s 1971 paper on this work remains an important contribution to the disc ...
‘Do Not Allow the Rebel Leader Davis and His Traitorous Crew to Escape’ – The Raid Begins February 28 & 29, 1864 (Sunday & Monday) The year 1864, unlike 2014, was a leap year. Here, we shall combine two days of action into one. Only the best men were selected, and many of them handpicked by their own commanders. The horses, as well, had to be able to make a long and rapid journey of five days – the amount of time General Judson Kilpatrick believed it would take to ride into Richmond, free the Union prisoners at Libby Prison and Belle Isle, and return to the Union lines. All was, at first, chaotic. The men forming his new unit had been pulled from myriad cavalry regiments, and thought hey understood their duty, it wasn’t a simple thing to do so under a new commander. The day previous began the diversion. A long column from the Sixth Corps, as well as cavalry under George Armstrong Custer, set out from near Brandy Station, Virginia with the purpose of convincing the Rebels under General Lee that a ...

Throwback Thursday: my buddy Terry Reilly shared a pic a few days ago from the 1980 The Detroit Free Press Marathon. I was on the far left side of the pic @ the zero mile mark, waitin' for the start gun in Jackson Park/Windsor. Fellow EMU grad Dennis J Kurtis was in that race too as well as his bro Doug Kurtis. Greg Meyer would win in a debut marathon effort of 2:13. Here I am in the final yards in front of the Casino on Belle Isle, white shorts & all. Shoes were adidas Marathon 80s - my fav of all time. In '79, I ran a poorly paced 2:29:10 ... hit the dreaded Wall at 23 miles. Ran smart in '80, 3 min slower thru 20 miles and wound up 23rd in 2:28:56. I thought there'd be many more good marathons to follow. I was wrong. By '83 I was announcing the race from nearly the same vantage point as this pic (which I framed & gave to my Mom, Xmas '80) and the event staff have generously welcomed me back to emcee since. When I got home from the race, there was a bag of cookies on my front door knob from Lisa Rainsbe ...

Tinker Toy's Adventure Walk, 12/27/13 Hi and happy holidays, Melissa! Thanks to your thoughtful sponsorship towards one of the great dogs at Richmond Animal Care & Control, I was able to get a fantastic year-old pit mix named Tinker Toy out for the day to spend with me down at Belle Isle! She was bursting at the seams with energy, but was very timid for the first few minutes of our meet. I didn't want to make her feel scared or give her any reason to think of me as a threat, so I kept the contact minimal at first, but once I walked her outside and let her do her business, she seemed to loosen up a bunch, and the more she looked at me, I think she could see I meant nothing but good for her, since her tail started wagging more, and a smile was creeping across her face little by little! Once I felt like I had earned a bit of her trust, I knelt down and she walked on over to me, sniffed my face, my hands and my face again before putting her huge tongue across it. Right then, she opened up the floodgates of af ...

Come On Eileeen's Adventure Walk, 12/26/13 Hi Patricia, Thank you very much for sponsoring an adventure walk for a shelter dog. Because of you, Come On Eileen was able to enjoy some time outside by the river today! Eileen is a 2 year old Pit Bull Terrier mix and is just as sweet as can be. As soon as Eileen saw that she was about to get leashed up, the tail started wagging and she was easing her way out of the kennel as fast as possible. She led the way outside and everyone there working gave her some affection. She has been at the shelter for some time now, and everyone had grown to know her there. Once at the vehicle, Eileen hopped right in and made herself comfortable. I cracked the window a bit and she had her nose pointed straight out, taking in all of the interesting smells that she could along the way. We arrived at Belle Isle and started making our way across the pedestrian bridge. We spotted another handler from Canine Adventure and Eileen was happy to have fellow canine friend from the shelter t ...
Lucy I'm Home's Adventure Walk, 12/23/13 Hey Jill, Thank you so much for sponsoring a walk for Steve McQueen at Animal Care and Control. Steve wasn't around for his walk today, he's not in the shelter anymore. He left a note asking that we send his friend "Lucy I'm Home" in his place! Cheesy name, to be sure, but I just called her Lucy and she was happy with this! Lucy is about 3 years old, a pretty little pit mix. She was very reserved and it was my goal today to get her to loosen up a bit and have some fun! During our car ride to Belle Isle, the rain started slacking off and Lucy sat calmly in the back of the car gazing out the window. When it was time to get moving, she slowly climbed out of the back seat, a bit unsure of herself. Once we got walking, and her sniffer got started, she knew what to do and began feeling more comfortable! We worked on a couple of leash drills for a moment, just to get our ground rules in place. She figured this stuff out very quickly. She was quite attentive during t ...

Governor wants a panda Gov. Rick Snyder reportedly has started negotiations with China to bring giant pandas to either the Detroit Zoo or the Belle Isle Zoo. If his efforts are successful, the bears would be a wonderful addition to either venue. The Royal Oak facility is already a regional gem. The pandas would only enhance the established venue. On the other hand, with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources taking over the island and turning it into a state park, putting the bears on Belle Isle would help return some luster to that zoo. A bear at either facility would put Detroit in an exclusive group. The only U.S. zoos that have giant pandas are in San Diego, Atlanta, Memphis and Washington, D.C. Pandas are rare. There are only about 1,600 in the wild in central China and 300 in zoos and breeding centers worldwide, according to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park.

Support for a Distance Hiker Many of you will remember Chris Hillier, aka Wolverine, who hiked from Belle Isle to Ironwood and became a friend to NCTA. His next hike is the 3100 mile Continental Divide trail from the New Mexico/Mexico border to Canada. He is scheduled to embark from the Mexican border town of Palomas on 04.14.2014. While he did land a job to raise money for the hike, he is in need of all the financial support he can get. If anyone would wish to contribute, there are a couple of different methods. One is to write a check to him and either mail it directly or through our chapter. Alternatively, make the check payable to NCTA and mail it to Lowell with the instruction it is to be credited to our chapter. Please, copy the chapter with the transmittal or email us. We will then cut a check to Chris. By this method as NCTA is a 501(C)3 entity you will receive a tax deduction.
"The Magic of Belle Isle"© - rated PG 2012 release by indie 'Dog Dave Productions, LLC.' distributed by 'Castle Rock Entertainment'. Starring : Morgan Freeman, Virginia Madsen (among others familiar) I'm confident this movie was seen by almost no one compared to most movie releases you'll find such recognizable faces, but don't let the "two-star" review deter you. This is a good, dealing with reality, small film that makes me long for knowing someone like Mr. Monte Wildhorn, played by Mr. Freeman. Just hearing someone express themselves in his manor, even the most mundane of responses becomes poetic, and makes me nostalgic for a time I've never known.
If you've never seen the movie The Magic of Belle Isle with Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen, definitely watch it. I challenge you to get through it without crying.
A Memory A Day; Nov. 14, 2013. (I know it's a day late, but this needs to be read before today's AMAD which will come later today): Moving to MOTOWN; After college, I went back home to Cleveland where I taught for one year. I decided Cleveland was too small, too boring, so moved to Detroit in 1965 to teaching job with the Detroit Public Schools. I absolutely loved, loved, loved Detroit. Belle Isle, Hudson's Department Store, Woodward Ave, The Baby Grand. Cobo Hall and all kinds of things to do. The Dynamic Soror Past National President, Lillian Benbow was then the President of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta. I enjoyed my Sorors as well as making many new friends in the city. Motown Records was taking hold of the music industry. The Temptations were one of the acts at the Michigan State Fair, on a fairly small platform stage so I got to see them up close and personal. Detroit was rocking! I loved every minute I lived there.

I applaud the move yesterday that made Belle Isle the state"s 102nd state park.
The condition Belle Isle was kept in was atrocious. It was once a jewel of Detroit. They can get $11 dollars from me.
I NEVER go to Belle Isle so they can charge what ever they want
My thing is how come Detroit didn't charge people to get on Belle Isle themselves
$11 for a YEAR PASS to get on Belle Isle isn’t bad at all. Long as that money is going towards maintaining Belle Isle.
Does that $11 pass get you on all the state parks, or just Belle Isle?
I still think that paying to get on Belle Isle is a good idea.

Watched a movie. Took me about 2 weeks. It is called The Magic of Belle Isle. Starring Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen. Very nice movie. Slightly predictable but very heart warming. A couple of cuss words but no violence, no sex, and no socially significant agenda. Just a nice story.
Watched a delightful little movie last night - the Magic of Belle Isle - starring Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen. Thought it was going to be Disney-corny...but it was actually quite good.
Governor’s slush fund pays for Detroit emergency manager’s luxury condo By Lawrence Porter 25 September 2013 Detroit’s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, is living well in a luxury condominium paid for by a secret slush fund operated by Michigan’s multi-millionaire governor, Rick Snyder. The previously unrevealed financial arrangement was exposed by the Detroit Free Press and confirmed by Orr’s spokesman. Orr—whose is also paid a salary of $275,000 by the state of Michigan—is demanding that city workers accept savage cuts in pensions and health care benefits. He has also threatened to sell off the city’s public treasures, from the Belle Isle part and the public lighting system to the paintings and sculptures of the art museum, to pay off the Wall Street banks and big bondholders controlling the city’s debt. As the saying goes, the corporate and political establishment certainly know how to take care of their own. Orr’s accommodations and some travel have been paid for by a so-called “non- ...

Good evening to all my FB friends and family, I've said it before, and I'm saying it again: This year’s mayoral election continues to surprise us with many twists and turns. We must, however, remain focused on Emergency Manager Marvin Kevyn Orr and his boss, Governor Rick Snyder, who continue to mislead Detroit residents.   How is it that since Kevyn Orr took control over Detroit, the City’s long term debt allegedly rose from $15 billion to $22 billion? Why does Kevyn Orr continue to insist that leasing Belle Isle to the State (to supposedly save $6 million over 10 years) is such an important priority to Detroit’s financial recovery? How can Kevyn Orr say that the Detroit Water Department is of NO value to Detroit residents unless its control is turned over to a regional authority? Why does Kevyn Orr continue to threaten to cut health care for seniors and retirees, but refuse to go after millions of dollars owed by millionaires and billionaires? Why is it that Kevyn Orr's reports do not even menti ...
Tommy's Thoughts; "TO BE OR NOT TO BE.TERMINAL THAT IS." From my diagnosis date,I've been asked time/time again."How can you keep cheerful,aren't you angry,don't you want to just give it up?"Well here's the answer...YES.but only for a mere second. You see friends my body may be crippled and weak,BUT my souls is stronger than ever.Its your SOU isL that defines you as a person,makes one good,keeps one hungry for more of lifes gifts.Yes,your HEART keeps this vessel afloat that holds our soul.but in the end the SOUL defines your strength thru life,and your love towards others. SO",TO BE OR NO TO BE.TERMINAL THAT IS."MY SOUL SAYS NO.Just sayn.

Just a reminder that we go back on the air next week. Tues. morning 6 a.m., Wed. noon, Sat. night 9 e.s.t.'s. First show has a bow hunt with a very strange twist to it and a gun hunt with a different twist as well. Then we run a four week series on 'horn rattln'. There's definitely good info in there every week of this series to help you become more successful. I think from start to finish this group of shows may be some of the best ever - from us. I'm sure every producer will have some great shows to watch. I can speak for every other producer, we all appreciate your support and we all know that everyone will have their favorite ones to watch. Braum's wouldn't be much fun to visit from time to time if they only offered vanilla ice cream. By the way, do you know what the most favorite flavor of ice cream is - nearly 2 to 1? . . . . . It's still good old fashion vanilla.

I just watched "The Magic of Belle Isle" which I had recorded from Showtime a couple of weeks ago. It was directed by Rob Reiner and stars Morgan Freeman. I usually like Rob Reiner movies and this not exception. I tend to like this type of lower budget film that has a plot over the high budget films with nothing more than action and special effects.
Detroit’s 55th firework display occurred Monday night and to say the firework show is eventful may be an understatement. Kids and families drown the downtown area and Belle Isle, the famous island that rests between Canada and Detroit, for a prime location to view the firework show. And once thousands of residents get settled in for the show, it is mayhem if any type of disturbance breaks out…which it has MANY times over the years. But last night, what officers and residents thought was gunfire, a later police investigation found that was possibly only the reverberation of the firework sounds off of the downtown skyscrapers. They did not uncover any evidence of gunfire.
