Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 10:36 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 Several years ago, Ken Koehler knew that changes were coming to Mexicantown in Detroit when he started seeing more and more people on bicycles riding up and down Bagley. The co-owner of Honey Bee Market at 16th Street and Bagley "never imagined" the biggest change maker would be Ford. “It’s great that Ford is making its presence in the city — the Motor City," Koehler said Wednesday of news the automaker had purchased the long-vacant Michigan Central Station in neighboring Corktown.

Adam Burchenal couldn’t say no 11 years ago when his grandfather offered him a job here, at Cee Bee’s Citrus Emporium.In the beginning, he was the manager of the juice room. When Adam reported for work in the mornings, the sunlight was golden on the orange rinds. Some 15,000 trees painted long shadows on the 300 acres of farmland where Hillsborough County bumps up against Pinellas and Pasco.He spent his days watching the oranges blur into a pulpy slush, scraping the dregs at the machine’s bottom into the best Popsicles he had ever tasted.
