Meadow Brook Concert & Cuisine

More than 350 ($85 - $125 tickets) convened at Oakland University for the annual summer fundraiser for MBT - “Michigan’s answer to Broadway.” Before the food stations opened, folks lollygagged outside sipping beer and wine from the Rochester Tap Room and bid $9,000 for the silent auction items Colleen Brnabic and Maryann Foxlee had set up in the hallway. Generous local restaurants (see photo gallery) served savory fare for dining on the stroll before the theatre doors opened. Artistic director Travis Walter conducted a live auction with his trademark good humor. He got $500 from two bidders for two Dickens packages that included a walk-on role in MBT’s “A Christmas Carol”  and $900 for a Fender Squire Guitar signed by The Grass Roots Band.

Rochester Hills death under investigation


04/14/2017 - Investigators with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office are investigating the death of a 46-year-old Rochester Hills man who was found unresponsive on the morning of Monday, April 10, in his vehicle in a parking lot in the 1400 block of Rochester Road.

Deputies patrolling a commercial parking lot in Rochester Hills were told by a person in the area that a vehicle was left running and a person was slumped over the steering wheel, the sheriff's office said. Deputies checked on the man, who was unresponsive and didn't appear to be breathing. The deputies then entered the vehicle and pulled the man out of the car to begin lifesaving measures.

Deputies at the scene performed CPR until paramedics with the Rochester Hills Fire Department arrived and took over medical treatment. The man was transported to Crittenton Hospital, where he died.

The incident is under investigation.
