Flint native bringing professional basketball back to the city

Flint United will begin play in March of 2021 and be a part of The Basketball League. Flint United will play a 24-game schedule after conducting tryouts across the Midwest over the next few months. A streaming service will broadcast all 24 games, so fans will be able to watch even if COVID-19 restrictions prevent attending sporting events in person when the season launches. The team is still in talks about a venue to play in next season.

Flint United owner Kevin Mays says the new TBL team will honor the city's rich basketball history.

Did you know your neighbors up in Byron are working hard to get the attention of Erin & Ben of HGTV‘s show ‘Hometown’? While we patiently wait for HGTV to announce the lucky winners, we’re working hard to show HGTV how many people would ‘like’ to see Byron featured in their next season!
Maybe someone at the DDA can explain to me why I pay $240 a month for parking and can't find a parking spot, but both the entry and exit gates hang wide open for people to park for free? It's happening more and more. You guys need to get it worked out.
