October 11, 2019, DeCarlos Convention Center, Warren, MI. Inactive for 15 months, super-middleweight Anthony Barnes, supported by Kara Ro in his corner, returned with a credible and un clear-cut six-round split decision duke over Kenneth Council. It was clear-cut, though one judge had him losing, not unreasonable, but the margin of that score clearly made it into the “ridiculous” category.More

Saturday Is Last Call This Year To Drive In, Drop Off Hazardous Household Waste At NoHaz Collection Event
Waterford, Michigan – Residents of 18 Oakland County communities have a final chance this year to dispose of their household hazardous waste in a safe and environmentally responsible way.
The NoHaz Consortium collection event is set for Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Oakland County Service Center, 1200 N. Telegraph Road, in Pontiac. The site is near building 26E on the county campus. Signs on the campus will direct residents to the collection location.
“The collection gives residents of our 18 NoHaz Consortium communities a safe and responsible way to dispose of a variety of household hazardous waste,” County Executive David Coulter said. “If you live in a NoHaz community, this is your last opportunity this year to drop off household hazardous waste.”
Household hazardous waste (HHW) items include paints, bleach, computer and electronic waste, insecticides and propane cylinders, among other items. Only residential waste is accepted – no contractor or business waste. A complete list of acceptable items – and those that will not be accepted – is available at www.NoHaz.com.
Residents of the 18 communities may dispose of their HHW for a nominal fee of $10, $15 or at no charge, depending on their community. Any Oakland County resident who does not reside in a NoHaz community may dispose of acceptable materials for a fee of $50. The fee list is found at www.NoHaz.com.
The NoHaz communities are Addison Township, Brandon Township, Groveland Township, Independence Township, Lake Angelus, Lake Orion Village, Leonard Village, Oakland Township, Orion Township, Ortonville, Oxford Township, Oxford Village, Pontiac, Rochester, Rochester Hills, Rose Township, Springfield Township and Waterford Township.
The NoHaz Consortium is a group of Oakland County communities that have come together to provide residents with a safe, reliable and environmentally responsible way to dispose of household hazardous waste. These wastes are the substances in your home that can be harmful to humans and the environment if not disposed of properly.

These unique destinations all have something great about them, and can be a great way to spice up a trip. Here are five unusual destinations in Detroit that you should consider checking out.
