IT'S FABULOUS OFFERS!
Omar Epps, who portrays a boxer
managed by Ryan as Jackie.
"I still consider myself a Detroiter,"
says Jackie. "When I hear Motown
music, see Vernor's ginger ale on a
store shelf or run into anyone who
went to Mumford High, I feel a
twinge in my heart.
"I miss my parents dearly every sin-
gle day," says Jackie. "It kills me that
they won't be here to see the opening
of my movie. They would have been
so proud and excited."
If they were still with us today,
Jackie's late mom and dad would prob-
ably be the first ones at the theater at
the picture's opening ... And when
Jackie comes on screen, they'd no doubt
yell out as her father, Phil, did when
she became the first woman inducted
into the Michigan Jewish Sports Hall
of Fame ... "That's our gal!"
JUDGES HAVE BEEN selected for
the 2003 Michigan Culinary Food and

The eighth annual Mardi Gras-
theme event will be at Mac & Ray's
Banquet & Conference Center in
Harrison Township ... Past seven years
proceeds have been given to the
Michigan Culinary Team, but there
won't be one at the 2004 World
Culinary Arts Salon in Germany ...
The celebration still goes on, with
funds sending Team Macomb, repre-
senting Macomb Community College,
which will compete.
Restaurant winner last year was
Steve & Rocky's ... Second place, Mac
& Ray's, Third Place, Golden
Mushroom ... Best food and wine
pairing went to Cafe Cortina.
IT WAS NUMBER 60 in the
anniversary department for Marion
and Jay Grant ... and about 150 came
to help this fine couple celebrate.
The fun-filled evening marked many
years of friendship among many of the
attendees ... Oldest was that of former
Farmington Hills councilman and
mayor Ben Marks ... 60 years.
Birthdays of family members weren't
forgotten ... with both celebrated on
the auspicious occasion of Marion and
Jay ... Tracey Grant, daughter of their
son, Mark, was born on the celebrant's
