We're counting down the days and double checking our list of chores pre-Christmas. Follow along and add your own tricks to keep this holiday on track. Today it's '5 Golden Rules!'
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, five golden rules, "You're Invited!" cards, gifts for my friends, ways to spread the love and a little time reserved just for me. For those of you thinking, "There's more than one golden rule?" thank goodness we've reached you in time. If you're familiar with Hall Road, you've probably realized that the treat-others-as-you-would-wish-to-be-treated sentiment is not often applied on a day-to-day basis and almost never during the holiday season. Somehow amid the sales, wrapping paper, snow and overeating, the everyday niceties – also known as manners – disappear. If only during the holiday season, try to use a few of these "golden rules." You never know, it might become a habit and you'…

The new location opened on Monday, Dec. 2, and will serve customers from 10 a.m to 4 a.m. seven days a week.
If you find yourself craving that "fourth meal," you can now add the northeast corner of Romeo Plank and Hall Road to your list of Taco Bell locations. Macomb Township's newest fast food restaurant opened its doors Monday, Dec. 3. The township approved construction of the franchise in fall 2011, but Taco Bell didn't break ground on the new location until August of this year. The lot on which Taco Bell now sits formerly housed a BP gas station, which had been vacant for more than a year when Taco Bell announced its plans for the property. The restaurant is open 10 a.m. to midnight seven days a week, with the drive-thru open from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. seven days as well. When Macomb Patch asked readers in November 2011 what they thought of the …

Nearly a dozen storefronts sit vacant in this shopping center, almost all without a direct view of Hall Road. What business would draw attention to this area, even without the advantage of Hall Road frontage?
You've lived in Macomb Township for five, 10, maybe 25 years, but have you ever had a say in community planning? Despite its name, community planning is not a community-wide effort. We're going to change that–even if it's just in theory–here on Patch. Taking a 21st-century spin on community planning, Patch is putting everything on the digital drawingboard and asking residents to share their visions for vacant properties in town. Every other week, we'll present a new vacant building and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use.
