The Southwest Detroit Business


Association (SDBA) in partnership
with the Mexicantown Community
Development Corporation (MCDC)
has started the reactivation of the
Mexicantown Hubbard Communities
Main Street Program, which is funded
by two LISC Building Sustainable
Communities Early Action Grants.
The initiative is engaging local businesses, residents and community stakeholders in order to implement a comprehensive, commercial district economic
development program. The vision of the
MHC Main Street Program is to provide
customers and visitors with an inviting,
exciting and satisfying shopping, dining
and cultural experience.

Mexicantown is the authentic heart


of the Mexican culture in southeast
Michigan, said SDBA President Kathy
Wendler. We are thrilled that this
meaningful program will help reinvigorate the local business community and
serve as a platform to reintroduce the
wonderful events and activities that
showcase this amazing community.
Importantly, the program also will help
us welcome the many new businesses
moving into the Mexicantown area.
The group is working on the creation
of a printed and digital marketing brochure with a detailed map and listing
of all businesses, nonprofit organizations and cultural annual events taking place in the Mexicantown Hubbard

The Top 7 Risk


Factors
for Oral Cancer
This article examines 4 of the 7 risk factors for oral cancer that
we introduced in our
last article as well as
changes you can make
that might reduce your
risk. We will complete our discussion in
our article in the next
issue.
Gender: Men are
twice more likely to get
oral cancer. (They also
visit the dentist less.)
The American
Cancer Society attributes this to higher
rates of alcohol and
tobacco use by men,
but says more men of a
younger age are being
diagnosed with HPV
(Human papilloma
virus) related forms of
oral cancer.
Age: Your risk for
oral cancer greatly
increases after age 44.
Tobacco: Whether
you smoke it or chew it,

tobacco use increases


your risk dramatically.
Smoking can cause
oral cancer, as well as
cancer in other parts of
the body. Pipe smokers
are also at higher risk
for developing cancer
in their lips. Smokeless
tobacco, like chew, can
lead to many issues in
your mouth, the most
serious being cancer of
the cheeks, gums and
lips.
Alcohol: According
to the American Cancer
Society, 7 out of 10 oral
cancer patients are
heavy drinkers. Heavy
drinking, as defined by
the center for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC), is an average
of two drinks a day
or more for men and
an average of more
than one drink a day
for woman. If you are
a heavy drinker and
a heavy smoker, your
chances of developing
oral cancer are significantly higher than
either one alone.

de Riesgo para el

Este artculo examina 4 de los 7 factores
de riesgo para el cncer

oral que introdujimos


en nuestro ltimo artculo, as como los cambios que puede hacer,
que pueden reducir su
riesgo. Vamos a completar nuestra discusin
en nuestro artculo en
el prximo nmero.
Gnero: Los hombres son dos veces ms
propensas a padecer
cncer oral. (Tambin

La Sociedad

atribuye a mayores
tasas de consumo de
alcohol y tabaco por los
hombres, pero no dice
ms hombres de una
edad ms temprana
estn siendo diagnosticados con VPH (virus
del papiloma humano)
las formas conexas de
cncer oral.
Edad: El riesgo de
cncer oral aumenta en
gran medida despus
de 44 aos de edad.
Tabaco: Si usted
fuma o se mastica, el
consumo de tabaco
aumenta el riesgo de
forma espectacular.
Fumar puede causar
cncer oral, as como el
cncer en otras partes
del cuerpo. Los fumadores de pipa tambin

estn en mayor riesgo


de desarrollar cncer
en sus labios. El tabaco
sin humo, como masticar, puede conducir a
muchos problemas en
la boca, el ms grave

y los labios.
Alcohol: De acuerdo con la Sociedad

On Thursday, September 22, 2016, at El Rancho


Restaurant, 5900 W. Vernor, at 8:30 a.m., the W.
Vernor and Springwells Business Improvement
District(BID) holds its annual meeting, as required
by state legislation. All property owners within the
boundaries of that district will have been invited
to attend that meeting, at which time the organization addresses the business matters of the BID.
Business improvement districts are created by a
vote of the property owners in a specific geography
for the purpose of strengthening the vibrancy and
value of the area. Only property owners may vote
once the district is created.
Throughout the year, the BID board meets
monthly to conduct the business of the organization, whose purpose is to support local property
owners and businesses through the creation and
maintenance of a business district that is clean,
safe and attractive to customers both within and
from outside the neighborhood in which it is located. In the Vernor Springwells BID, the board, with
the support of the membership, installed and maintains over 80 trash containers, broom and dustpan

I-75 Closing Should Benefit


Local Business

The Michigan
Department of
Transportation (MDOT)
will close a stretch of
southbound I-75, from
Springwells Street to
Clark Avenue, early
next year to start work
on multi-year, multimillion dollar infrastructure improvement
project. The project
includes:
* Repairing I-75
pavement from
Springwells Street to
Clark Avenue.
* Replacing the
Rouge River Bridge
deck on I-75 (the largest bridge in Michigan)
and the I-75 bridge
over Fort Street.
* Removing the
obsolete I-75 bridge
over Goddard Road and
constructing two small-

er bridges.
* Repairing 13 small
bridges along the I-75
route.
* Adding an intelligent transportation
system (ITS).
* Repairing I-75
pavement from
Goddard Road to the
Rouge River.
MDOT expects the
project to be completed
in 2018 and will detour
southbound I-75 traffic
for the duration of the
project. Commercial
trucking and commuters will be advised to
take I-96 west to I-275,
then follow I-275 south
to I-75. Alternatively,
local traffic will be able
to take I-75 southbound
up to Springwells
Street and will then be
re-routed to W. Fort

St., among others.


Northbound I-75 traffic
will not be affected by
the project.
For local businesses, the prospect of
increased through-traffic on the surface roads
in Southwest Detroit
(Springwells, Livernois,
Clark, Vernor, Fort,
etc.) presents an opportunity to reach new
audiences and cultivate
an expanded customer
base. Those who get
creative with marketing and advertising, for
example by promoting
their shop, restaurant,
or service to passers-by
with special offers and
incentives, are likely to
benefit.

Its the Law / Es la Ley


Do You Have A Will?
Estate planning is an
area which most people
tend to neglect. Nobody
likes to think of their
ultimate demise however,
failure to plan for this
eventuality could cost
thousands of dollars and
cause a family dispute. A
Last Will and Testament
call alleviate these problems.
A Will tells the
world how you want
your property to be distributed when you pass
on. You may name your
family, friends, distant
relatives, charities, or
others as beneficiaries.
You can also use your
Will to give other types
of instructions, such as
naming a guardian for
your children, burial/
cremation arrangements
and specifying a Personal
Representative for your
estate. The named guardian will be the person

who will raise your children if you die before they


are adults. The Personal
Representative administers the Will and makes
sure that your wishes
are followed as closely as
possible. The role of a
Personal Representative
involves considerable
responsibility and time,
so you should select this
individual carefully.
Preparing a Will
may not be enough. As
the law changes frequently, your financial
and family circumstances change as well.
Therefore you should
review and update your
will with your attorney
on a regular basis. Many
Wills do not reflect any
spouses, later born children, divorces, or deaths
of named beneficiaries.
Wills must be drafted and
witnessed in a specific
fashion in order to be
valid and therefore, it is

imperative that you seek


the advice of an attorney
when creating this type of
document. There is no
one size fits all approach
to estate planning. An
estate needs to be tailored to the particular
needs of an individual by
an experienced attorney
who understands various options and personal
goals. An experienced
estate planning attorney
can help you determine
how a Will or other
documents can help you
achieve your dreams.

Tiene usted un testamento?


Planificacin de patrimonio es un rea que
muchas personas descuidan. Nadie quiere
pensar en su desaparicin
definitive sin embargo,
falta de plan para esta
eventualidad podra
costar miles de dlares y
y provocar una disputa
familiar. Un testamento
puede aliviar estos problemas
Un testamento
dice el mundo cmo desea
que su propiedad se distribuya al pasar. Puede
nombrar su familia, amigos, parientes lejanos,
Caridades u otros como
beneficiarios. Tambin
puede utilizar su testamento para dar otros
tipos de instrucciones,
como nombrar a un tutor

para sus nios, arreglos

y especificando a un
Representante Personal
para su patrimonio. El
nombrado tutor ser la
persona que ser criar a

representante de Personal
administra el testamento
y se cerciora de que sus
deseos se siguen lo ms
cerca posible. El representante de Personal
administra la voluntad
y se cerciora de que sus
deseos se siguen lo ms
cerca posible.
Preparacin de un
testamento puede no ser
suficiente. Como la ley
cambia con frecuencia, su
financiero y familiar circunstancias cambian tambin. Por lo tanto debe
revisar y actualizar su
testament con su abogado
regularmente. Muchos
testamentos no reflejan
a cualquier cnyuge,

divorcios o defunciones

Testamentos debe ser
redactado y fue testigo
de una manera especfica

tanto, es imperativo que
busques la asesora de un
abogado al crear este tipo

de Polica de Detroit (DPD, por sus siglas en ingls), a lo largo de la Vernor,
desde Woodmere hasta la Clark, y en la Springwells de la Vernor a la autopista I-75.
Aunque la nueva iluminacin en la W. Vernor es un producto de la recaudacin de fondos y el trabajo de la Asociacin de Negocios del Suroeste de
Detroit, es la dedicacin de los dueos de propiedades para establecer el BID
que cre la voluntad poltica para iniciar y para que se llevara a cabo el proyecto. Aplaudimos a nuestros propietarios de negocios locales por los bienes y servicios que proporcionan, los puestos de trabajo que han creado y por su visin
del futuro en la creacin del primer Distrito de Mejoramiento Comercial (BID)
en Detroit y el estado de Michigan!
