SHOP LOCAL MACOMB
Did you know that there are about 1,600 independently owned and operated retailers in Macomb County? These unique stores enhance our main streets and help create a distinct sense of place for each of Macomb's 27 communities.

Shoppers will have a chance to enter a contest to win one of five $500 gift cards. To enter, snap a photo of you shopping local and post it online between November 23 and December 2. Winners will be randomly selected during a live Facebook drawing at noon on Monday, December 3.

MEMBER TIP: 
by Excelerate America
While the holidays are indeed the most wonderful time of year, they're also the most dangerous for businesses everywhere.

During the height of shopping season, hackers are even harder at work, doing their best to illegally obtain important customer data.

Target, Neiman Marcus, and even eBay have all been victims of costly cyber hackers. And small businesses are even more susceptible, even though you may think you're doing enough.


MEMBER BENEFIT OF THE WEEK:  
AAA:  Personal Home & Auto Insurance - 10-13% off rates.

ASCENSION MACOMB-OAKLAND HOSPITAL PROGRESS UPDATE
You might call it South Macomb Hospital, St. John Macomb,
or by its new name - Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital.
But whatever you call it, the community hospital at Twelve
Mile and Hoover roads in Warren is the only hospital serving
southern Macomb County and the only one in Warren, the
state's third largest city.

As a result, Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital can be
very busy. To continue providing you with excellent medical
care and a more comfortable, private environment, the
hospital's East Tower is undergoing an expansion from four
to seven floors.

M-59 RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATE FROM MDOT:

This week, MDOT was able to switch traffic from the inside lanes to the newly paved outside lanes on westbound M-59 and also began paving the right two lanes of eastbound M-59. They have been closely monitoring numerous factors related to the placement of the pavement and can assure you that we are not sacrificing any quality by paving in the current winter conditions. This is one of the reasons that paving has not been able to continue day after day on the project under the current weather conditions.  Because of some of these delays, MDOT did not feel that it was in the best interest of the business community nor the general public to work on Friday or Saturday this past weekend.  Thank you again for your patience with the workers as the final steps to complete this project come together.
