This is so stupid. To turn down the $1 millon, from Fred Myers! Michigan is in dire straits, and Michigan turns this down. Who cares what is is named? No wonder Michigan is in such bad shape. The taxpayers are fed up, and this takes the cake..More taxes to pay for when there is someone to pay!! Dumb & Dumber

Sounds like Fred Myers wanted all the credit. There should have been a compromise in that all those people who made donations should have their names on a memorial plate. That way all who contributed would be recognized in this community effort.
