Wolves state

win on ITV

Miss the Wolves' state-championship game last December?

It's on ITV, local public access television, but only for this week.

“Dr. Rod Rock (Clarkston schools superintendent) and I approached Fox Sports and the MHSAA and asked if we could air the game for a week,” said Pat Kittle, Independence Township supervisor. “We need to just relish the moment. It’s been a long time.”

The Clarkston High School football team won the Division 1 State Football Championship, defeating Detroit Catholic Central, 32-14, at Ford Field.

It includes highlight video, recorded games and special interviews.

No Tim Horton’s

on M-15 and Dixie

Independence Township Planning Commission turned down a proposal for a drive-thru Tim Horton’s restaurant, convenience store, and gas station at the corner of M-15 and Dixie Highway.

Trustee Ron Ritchie, who also serves on the commission, said the prospective business owner couldn't meet traffic and parking requirements, so withdrew his petition.

“There were a number of concerns” said Trustee David Lohmeier, who added that the location will be difficult for any business to occupy.
