Renewed Interest

We are subscribers to Hour Detroit who live in Denver. We were born and raised in Detroit but have lived here for 45 years. We have been receiving your magazine for a few years now, but I was ready to drop my subscription until the April and May issues. The piece on greening Detroit ("Toward a Leaner, Greener Detroit," April 2013) gives us a feeling that there is hope for the hometown we have a special place in our hearts for. The Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal story ("Big Plans: When Erie Canal Envy Got Michigan Digging," May 2013) was fascinating. We never knew about this canal, and our Detroit relatives did not know either. Please keep up the good work in informing us about our beloved Detroit — not just the elite part. Thank you.

A Cover Girl Speaks

Hi, Monica (Mercer). I got the June (2013) issue of Hour yesterday. Your article ("More Than a Pretty Face") is amazing! Thank you so much for saying so many sweet things about me. I love the (Joe Vaughn) photo (Art Director Cassidy Zobl) picked. I can't believe it [was] the whole page. Thank you so much for everything you did.
— Catie Glossmann (via text message), a philanthropist and cancer survivor we featured 10 years after she first appeared on our cover.

Heroes Among Us

My son did such a heroic thing. He helped save three people in a house fire. We are so proud, and just today I received Hour Detroit with the heroes on the cover (June 2013). It was great! I love your magazine. It's in my waiting room every month.
— Dr. Bill Brady (via email), whose son, Tyler Brady, helped rescue three people during a house fire on May 15 in East China Township, Mich.

Heavy Lifting

Hi, Cassidy (Zobl). Thank you for such a wonderful experience working with Hour! I look forward to the next issue being published. It was great to meet such hard working and creative people! Thank you for letting me be a part of it!
— Jackie Byrne, superhero :-) (Byrne won Best Personal Trainer: Female, and "lifted" a car on page 99 of last month's Best of Detroit issue.)

I just wanted to thank you again for allowing me to be a part of the magazine. The picture looks absolutely amazing. This will be an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. For me to be on the cover of the magazine is probably the coolest thing that has ever happened to me!  
— Brad Goodstein (Best Personal Trainer: Male and the "hero" of our cover shot)

Criminal Coverage?

I am appalled at your layout for the Best of Detroit issue (June 2013). It is beyond my scope of understanding why a magazine that purports to support metro Detroit would choose to display the best of the city against a backdrop of crime and urban decay … One photo shows a man pointing a gun in the background. Seriously? In this day and age? Your attempt at an avant garde photo spread has missed the mark entirely.
— Anne Miller, via email

Hometown Pride

Dear Ilene (Wolff), How surprised I was as I browsed through my new Hour magazine (May 2013) yesterday. There was Rogers City! Even though I left in 1966, I still return once a year … Thank you for featuring my hometown. I am sharing the article with my siblings and the curator of the Presque Isle County Historical Museum
— Candace Snyder, Southfield
