The Detroit Sunday Journal. Published over the Anchor Bar!

The first strike paper was the Detroit Union, the Journal started after we proved with the Union that there was a need for a strike paper.

Looks like it was sold. Couldn't find a website for it.

http://hamtramckstar.com/index .php/2007/03/06/citizen_newspa per_sold

Itís just a college paper, but the Daily Collegian, and later The South End, published by Wayne State students.

www.thesouthendnews.com

Thereís also the Observer and Eccentrics in Livonia and Oakland County; the Mirror newspapers, also in Oakland; the heritage newspapers downriver; the Press and Guide in Dearborn; the Royal Oak Daily Tribune; the Grosse Pointe News. I think there's also a chain of weeklies in Macomb Co. and Southfield, but I can't remember their names.
I know Henry Ford published his own anti-Semitic newspaper years ago, but I canít remember what it was called. (Ok, I know these arenít Detroit papers, but figured Iíd mention them.)

I wonder what ever happened to Parker Publications string of weeklies. At one time they published the Ferndale Gazette-Telegraph, the Highland Parker and at least 2 regional Detroit weekly newspapers......

Story about GRIT,
My brother delivered it for a little while, in early 70's, one day people complained that they weren't getting it. So the manager came to out house and asked my brother whats up! She ended up going to the garage and found a bunch of papers in the trash can. I think he had more important things to do like watch Star Trek. I guess that ended his career as a paper carrier.

Bullshit is shit from bulls. Some bulls may claim to represent your cause, and some may not, but they all shit, and shit & truth are two different things.
