Our network of websites delivers not only relevant, hyper-local information, but also amplifies the voices of our users. And with difficult choices facing our elected officials in the coming days and weeks, the need for citizens to speak up and be heard has never been greater.

Separate boycotts criticize coffee chain's stances on national issues.
Some religious and political groups are urging Starbucks customers to grab their morning coffee elsewhere in light of the company's stance on gay marriage and its policy on guns. USA Christian Ministries, a group boycotting Starbucks for its recent support of gay marriage in the state of Washington, said in a news release that the coffee chain's decision has angered Christians.

Less than a half a mile away from the main drag of the Woodward Dream Cruise the streets are a little lighter and a whole lot quieter. Cruisers – and those who shun the cruise – can find food, drinks and a cool place to hang out with no long lines in downtown Royal Oak. The exception might be Starbucks. “It’s business as usual here at Starbucks,” manager Bernadette Monterosso said. The long lines, almost out the door, validate that fact. Although there are many things people will give up, a great latte or cappuccino doesn't seem to be one of them. Liz Morton, owner of Lily’s Seafood on Washington, said the restaurant was seeing very little business on Dream Cruise Saturday. Morton pointed to local parties and the number of residents who …
