Four women and the year that was 2013 in the City of Bloomfield Hills. Part one..

Welcome  to the annual  "year in review" articles that newspapers and magazines run to fill the void between Christmas and the new year. Quite often this involves a top ten list, a biggest disappointment list  (usually in sports),  or notations with arrows indicating whether celebrities, politicians, or athletes are moving up or down.

Our city is a small city. Ten top stories would be pushing it so we settled on four. Curiously each of the four stories center on  four different women  who played starring roles in the accomplishments, high drama, intrigue, revelation and sound and fury that was The City of Bloomfield Hills  in 2013. The stories occurred in a chronological order that more or less coincided with the seasons of the year. We have no "up" or "down" arrows to place but three of the stories, current ending, is bitter sweet. The other is promising  at least for now.

The four stories we have chosen are in chronological order....

  • Celebrate Bloomfield Hills. Mary Juras. January 2013
  •  Opening the City Archives. Amy Burton. April.
  • Saving the City's Public Safety Dispatch. Sarah McClure. July.
  • Addressing  slanted Questions on the 2012 Citizen Satisfaction Survey. Pat Hardy. October.
