tional exhibits, crafts, dreidel cookies
and latke making, and took photos with a
giant dreidel mascot.
The highlight of the event was the
public menorah lighting at the mall

Michelle Economou and Rabbi Shneur
Silberberg addressed the gathering. Coby
Goutkovitch, a veteran of the Israeli
Defense Forces, lit the giant 12-foot

Ethnic Media Examine
Detroit's Bankruptcy
Five ethnic and minority newspapers,
including the Detroit Jewish News, will
have a critical role in a new reporting proj-
ect examining the city's bankruptcy and its
effect on the region.
Funded by the John S. and James L.
Knight Foundation, the project involves
several media organizations as well as
New Michigan Media (NMM). All the
media outlets, as part of the grant, will
form the Detroit Journalism Cooperative
where coordinated reporting will focus on
Detroit's bankruptcy and its immediate,
ongoing and long-lasting consequences.
NMM's work will examine how the
region's ethnic and minority communities
are affected by the city's bankruptcy.
"Ethnic and minority communities are
important economic drivers in this region:"
said Hayg Oshagan, executive director of
NMM, "and this grant will support in-
depth, original and creative coverage of how
individuals, businesses and organizations
are affected by the historic bankruptcy"
NMM's partners in the cooperative are
Bridge magazine, Detroit Public Radio
(WDET-FM), Detroit Public Television
(Channel 56) and Michigan Radio. The
NMM newspapers involved in the project
are the Arab American News, Detroit Jewish
News, Latino Press, Michigan Citizen and
Michigan Korean Weekly.

Sports Radio Hosts Get
On-Air Prostate Exams
Mike Stone, one of the hosts of the sports-
oriented 97.1-FM morning show, Stoney
and Bill with Sara, recently did what
few have done before ... had an on-air
digital prostate exam to encourage listen-
ers to drop their pants for good health.
Stoney, who is a mem-
ber of Temple Israel in
West Bloomfield, was
examined by Dr. Ranko
Miocinovic, a urologist
with the Detroit Medical
Center (DMC), who was
also accompanied by Dr.
Marta Johnson.
Mike Stone
Stoney's co-host, Bill
MacAllister, also under-
went the exam, in which a doctor inserts
a finger rectally to feel if there is any
enlargement of the prostate gland or suspi-
cious lumps. According to the American
Cancer Society, in the U.S. this year around
239,000 new cases of prostate cancer will
be diagnosed, with 29,700 men dying.
Around one in six men will be diagnosed
with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
"It is so important for men to get this
check-up, and we want to show our listen-
ers that it doesn't hurt; and there is really
no downside to getting it done. If we can
do it anyone can!" Stoney said.
