Cruise to Battle Alley organiz...

HOLLY, Michigan – It was standing room only at Tuesday’s Village Council meeting as more than 20 Battle Alley Car Cruise enthusiasts crowded into council chambers to speak in favor of keeping Holly’s popular Wednesday night car show in downtown Holly.

Councilman George Kullis requested the matter be added to the agenda after hearing from a group of concerned merchants during a merchant meeting earlier this month. Among their concerns – public safety, keeping S. Saginaw Street open for customers until 5 p.m. on the night of the car show, and possibly moving the show into Crapo Park.

Sandra Kleven, co-owner of French Flamingo Fashion Accessories said she isn’t against the car cruise, but has concerns about public safety. “We've had a lot of cars down, but I fear for the safety of the attendees because it would be very hard for an emergency vehicle to get downtown should, Heaven forbid, a fire occur in one of the establishments or somebody should fall down and break a bone – have a heart attack,” she said. “There is really no way for an emergency vehicle to get down – most of the time, there were a lot of cars down the center of the street – all the parking spaces were taken, and Civic Drive was completely blocked off.”

Shirley Campbell

HOLLY, Michigan - Efforts to recall four Holly Village Council members failed Wednesday after members of Oakland County’s Election Commission disallowed all four recall petitions.

While former Village Councilwoman Shirley Campbell’s name along with her attorney, Tom Ryan was on the recall petitions, Campbell filed recall petitions on behalf of the group with Oakland County on April 1. The petitions aimed to recall Village President Ryan Bladzik, and council members, George Kullis, Debra Musgrave, and Chris Rankin for their roles in approving the June 11, 2013 motion to disband the village’s police dispatch center and sell most of the remaining equipment to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department for $20,000.

Village President Ryan Bladzik

HOLLY, Michigan – Four Holly council members could be up for recall in November should Oakland County’s Board of Election Commissioners find the petitions submitted by a concerned group of Holly citizens to be valid.

Represented by attorney, Tom Ryan, a group of Holly citizens is pushing to recall President Ryan Bladzik, and council members, Chris Rankin, George Kullis and Debra Musgrave for their roles in approving the June 11, 2013 motion to disband the village’s police dispatch center and sell most of the remaining equipment to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office for $20,000.

While the petitions were officially signed on Tuesday at the Oakland County Clerk’s office in Pontiac, members of the citizens’ group wish to remain anonymous until the Board of Election Commissioners discusses the matter later this month.

HOLLY, Michigan - A Holly couple is hoping the community can help in locating their beloved dog that has been on the run for nearly two weeks.

Ted and Christa Kenyon are asking residents to keep an eye out for their 2-year old Norwegian Buhund, Storm, who managed to escape their fenced in Evans Road kennel on Sunday, March 16.

Initially, Storm was seen running west across N. Holly Road near Evans. “She ran into the woods behind the white farmhouse,” Ted said. “She was seen a short time later on the west side of Kennedy Lake.” Ted said the man called to her, but that she turned and ran eastward across the lake. The next morning, Storm was seen along Belford Road, west of N. Holly near Ravens Wood Rd.

HOLLY, Michigan – Fire investigators from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office are calling last month’s residential fire on E. Maple Street accidental in nature, and confirmed that the fire originated in the basement.

Converted into seven apartment units, the historical home became engulfed in flames on Feb. 23, and was later deemed to be a complete loss. While no one was injured or killed in the blaze, all seven families suffered tremendous loss, with several families having lost absolutely everything.
