Great Red Wing Legend Gordie Howe is said to be resting comfortably after suffering a serious stroke at his daughter's house in Texas Sunday morning. His son Murray Howe, a Doctor in Toledo, says Gordie, who is 86, is able to speak, but has limited movement on the right side of his body and needs help walking. Gordie also suffers from dementia and underwent successful spinal surgery for back pain this summer. 

So please join me and the entire Purtan Family in sending Prayers for a speedy recovery to a great athlete... and a great man. 


The 18,000 sq. ft. Grosse Pointe Shores mansion of Art Van Furniture founder Art VanElslander, originally listed at $15.9 million was sold at auction yesterday for an undisclosed price. 

- They don't know how much it went for, but we do know the deal included no money down, no interest for four years AND Art Van paid the sales tax!

- The home was closed the day before the auction so employees could slash the price to the absolute lowest of the season.
