o/t #MotownMoms: Did you know Indiana Installed ‘Safe Haven Baby Boxes’ for Abandoned Newborns

by Daniella Silva  ( this article was originally published on nbcnews last year)
Monica Kelsey and the town of Woodburn, Ind., dedicated the first Safe Haven Baby Box of its kind on in 2016  of April 26.

Indiana has installed two “baby boxes” where mothers can anonymously drop off unwanted newborns as an extension of the state’s safe haven law.

Two Safe Haven Baby Boxes were opened to the public recently at Indiana fire stations as part of an initiative to give mothers in crisis a secure place to surrender their babies, said Monica Kelsey, a volunteer firefighter and founder of the nonprofit that created the boxes.

“I was abandoned as an infant back in 1973, so I’ve always been very close to the safe haven law,” she told NBC News on Thursday.

The first box was installed last week on the exterior wall of the fire department in Woodburn, near Fort Wayne, where Kelsey volunteers. When a person opens the baby box, a call is immediately placed to 911, and fire and medical personnel are dispatched to the scene.

The box is padded and climate controlled to keep the baby warm while still allowing air circulation, Kelsey said, and automatically locks once a person leaves the child and shuts the door.

#MotownMom: Lovers Only To Source from Farm Field Table & Other Michigan Artisans


Lovers Only to Source from Farm Field Table as Well as Other Michigan Artisans

Ahead of its March opening, the Capitol Park restaurant shares details on its ingredients and menu


Proprietor Eli Boyer, Co-Chefs Justin Tootla and Jennifer Jackson

(DETROIT, MI; March 1, 2018)— The team behind Ferndale’s successful seafood spot Voyager aims to highlight Michigan’s wealth of local artisans at their upcoming Capitol Park restaurant Lovers Only. Proprietor Eli Boyer alongside Co-Executive Chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla worked carefully to select quality ingredients for each element of their menu: from the meat to the buns, ice cream, and more.

Collaborating closely with butcher Farm Field Table, Chefs Jackson and Tootla created a customized meat grind for Lovers Only’s burgers using 100% pasture-raised Michigan beef. Dry-aged chuck, brisket, and short rib creates a combination of umami, meatiness, richness, and complexity that results in the ultimate marriage of flavor and texture for their burgers. Those burgers include the Classic Smash on a sesame potato roll with a 6 oz.  patty, onion, mayo, and mustard and the Burlington on a brioche bun with a 6 oz. patty, dijonaise, raw and cooked onions, pickle relish, and Wisconsin-style cheddar cheese sauce. Lovers Only will also serve a handful of other sandwiches, including The Extern with cold fried chicken with house slaw and white bbq sauce.

Along with Farm Field Table’s selection of family farm-raised meats, Lovers Only will source their buns from Brown’s Bun Bakery and Alharamine International Foods, milk from Guersney Farms Dairy, ice cream from Calder Dairy for their milkshakes, and bologna and hot dogs from Sy Ginsberg.

“Michigan is home to so many incredible artisans and family-owned companies: from butchers like Farm Field Table that work to highlight small producers and farms to businesses like Sy Ginsburg that have been perfecting their recipes for generations. We want to be a burger joint for Detroit, so naturally we’re partnering with the best local purveyors possible,” says Proprietor Eli Boyer.

#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) For more details, view here

Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.

Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.

So when I found the LawnGuru services through Amazon home and business services I was in like Flynn… (I actually don’t know what that means), but I was in love.

I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.

It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.

Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.

P.S. They also do snow removal also

I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.

For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”

#MotownMom: City of Detroit’s Water and Sewerage Department launches new fraud office

DETROIT (WXYZ) – You better beware, if you are not paying your fair share!

The Cty of Detroit is coming for you and calling out all frauds!

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has a brand new fraud unit and it’s already busting the guilty, all to help protect the innocent.

Businesses, you are now ON NOTICE! Gary Brown, the Director of the Water and Sewerage Department is making his message about their mission loud and very clear!

First up? Lou’s Deli – which Brown says has been caught straight piping – removing the meter so that it doesn’t measure the water usage.

So, while they’re paying the service and drainage charge, but not the water they’re using.

Brown says that’s costed the city about $14,000.
