Apr 19, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WDBZ-AM Cincinnati

A black town near Lake Michigan may be taken over and turned into a golf course by an "emergency financial manager." Emergency Manager Joe Harris was appointed by then Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm to "correct financial problems" and save the city from complete financial disaster.

rEAD ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS ON THE NET. Better keep an eye out on the taxes that may be raised so a person can no longer afford to keep their proprty whether it is a park by the eashore or a business or just a residential property. If the taxes are raised high enough the wealthy can come in buy up your property for taxes and get their giolf course property and have a nesw busness district to build on. Then where will the citizens of Benton Harbor live?

The town has been red lined by the rich to turn it into their own golf course and private gated community--another case of redlining as the banks done years ago.
