Royal Oak Way now open

The City of Royal Oak celebrated the grand opening of Royal Oak Way, also known as The ROW, at a Small Business Saturday with Santa event on Nov. 24. The new public alley with decorative paving is part of the Downtown Development Authority’s plan to make downtown alleyways more attractive and will complement the new 581-space parking garage, office building, City Hall, police station and two-acre park.
 
The ROW will serve as a functional alley for deliveries, but with the option for seating, decorative lights, murals, special events and more. The ROW is the alleyway behind businesses along Main Street between 11 Mile and Third Street.
 
“The Small Business Saturday with Santa event is one of the first of many community events to be hosted in The Row,” said Sharlan Douglas, Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Royal Oak. “The City of Royal Oak is looking forward to expanding the alleyway project throughout the downtown.”
 
Additionally, an estimated 14 parking spaces will be added to the alley alongside the new parking garage and office building once completed. The alleyway will help connect pedestrians to the Royal Oak Library, Royal Oak Farmers Market and the two-acre park coming in 2020.

“It’s great to see Royal Oak creating other uses for downtown alleys,” said Aric Klar, owner of Toyology Toys. “Creativity like this helps make downtown Royal Oak more attractive, and this inviting new space will hopefully be used for events and more to help bring people to downtown Royal Oak.” 
 
The Small Business Saturday with Santa event in The ROW, featured family-friendly activities including photos with Santa, arts and crafts from Toyology Toys, ribbon cutting and brief remarks from Mayor Pro Tem Douglas, live entertainment from the Royal Oak Children’s Choir and coffee from Dessert Oasis.

New gift amounts to $8 mil of giving to Beaumont heart and vascular care from Max and Debra Ernst

Orchard Lake residents Max and Debra Ernst have increased their support to Beaumont heart and vascular care to a total of $8 million, launching the new Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. The center will be dedicated to consolidating cardiac care, particularly for patients with heart failure, into an area that is not only convenient but comprehensive to provide a variety of heart and vascular services. 

In 2009, the couple also gave $3 million to open the Ernst Cardiovascular Center in Memory of Ellen Ernst.

“Through their incredible support, Max and Debra have demonstrated that it doesn’t take a medical degree to save a life – all it takes is a heart and a desire to help others” said Marc Sakwa, M.D., chief, Cardiovascular Surgery,Beaumont, Royal Oak.

The 14,000-square-foot Max & Debra Ernst Heart Center will be located adjacent to the East Tower entrance of the hospital near the current Ernst Cardiovascular Center. The new $9 million center will consolidate many outpatient heart services into one area to help cardiac patients; particularly those with heart failure, better manage their condition and reduce emergency center visits and hospital readmissions. Construction began on the new center this month. It will open in the fall of 2019.

Across the nation more than one million people are diagnosed with congestive heart failure each year, which may lead to poor quality of life and frequent hospitalizations for advanced care.  Heart failure is also the leading cause of hospitalization for those 65 years of age and older.

“The new Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center will be an incredible resource for our team to better serve our patients, especially those living with heart failure,” said Simon Dixon, M.D., chair, Cardiovascular Medicine, Beaumont, Royal Oak. “By consolidating services in the new location, we provide better access and directed care for those patients who require extra care and require frequent office visits.” 

Board-certified cardiologists, trained cardiac nurses, social workers and dietitians will provide medication monitoring, heart failure management and progressive therapies to not only improve symptoms but enhance quality of life.  These services will be provided with compassionate and specialized patient and family-centered care, in a convenient and easily accessible location for patients requiring more support. 

“When we made the gift in 2009, we told everyone if we saved one life, it would be worth it. Since that time, we are very satisfied with the excellent care the team has provided,” Max Ernst said. “My gratitude for the success the heart team has achieved has led my wife and I to commit additional support for their vision.” 

The success of the first Ernst multidisciplinary center, which offers many services, including low-cost, preventive heart screenings for adults and high school students, has created the need for expansion. Since the center opened in 2010, specialists have cared for more than 30,000 patients becoming one of the premiere programs for structural heart and valve disease and cardiac surgery.  

Margaret Cooney Casey, senior vice president and chief development officer, Beaumont Health, added, “We are deeply grateful to Max and Debra Ernst for their continued generosity and vision for Beaumont. Their gift will save even more lives, and help thousands of patients and their families for years to come.”

HomeGrown Brewing Company launches canning line

Family-owned and -run HomeGrown Brewing Company is branching out after a successful start. The micro-brewery in Oxford is launching its new take-out cans from today.

Since opening its doors in April last year, HomeGrown Brewing Company has enjoyed enormous success and support from the community. Over 400 people attended the grand opening, mug-club pre-sales sold out, and the brewery has sold over 93,000 pints to date.

Since opening, the local family behind the business, the Powers, has been busy growing the brewery’s brand, with beer-pairing dinners, beer education classes, live music and participation in Michigan beer festivals. “Now that we have a full year’s experience we wanted to move into canning as well,” says owner John Powers.

Cans will be available at the brewery from October 2 and head brewer Joe Powers says it’s a way to meet the demands of HomeGrown’s customers. “Lots of people make use of our take-home growlers, but these cans will be a welcome addition – they last longer and appeal to people who don’t want to drink a whole growler in one sitting.”

General Manager and artist Jeff Powers designed the unique can artwork and says he’s proud that it will be such an integral part of the brewery’s marketing. “I was inspired by the art nouveau poster designs of the ‘60s and ‘70s, stained-glass imagery and traditional block printing methods,” Jeff Powers said.

Four-packs will range from $12 - $20 and the brewery will rotate selections. They currently have their Whamber (American Amber Ale), Ruck-A-Chuck (American IPA), Zephyros (Hazy IPA), Red Sheeran (Irish Red), DIPA-potomus (Double IPA), Wee Nessie (Scottish Wee Heavy) and Cherry Saison available while stock lasts.
