Mark Kennedy, Associated Press Published 4:02 AM EST Dec 20, 2018 The “Transformers” movie universe has lately been leaky and rusted out, but “Bumblebee,” the sixth film in the series, is a stand-alone origin story written with disarming skill by Christina Hodson and starring the gifted Hailee Steinfeld. It’s a charming tale of a girl and her adorable car-robot, and though hard-core fan boys may complain it’s too soft, this film may turn out to be the perfect way to save “Transformers.” Could Bumblebee rescue Optimus Prime this time? The movie is set outside San Francisco in 1987, where the loyal B-127 Autobot has been sent to protect Earth and prepare the groundwork for the franchise. Badly hurt while battling two evil tracking Decepticons, he loses his voice and memories. Then he disguises himself as a vintage Volkswagen Bug and waits for deliverance in a salvage yard (not unlike the entire “Transformers” universe). … [Read more...] about Gentle ‘Bumblebee’ revives ‘Transformers’ franchise

Transit advocates are pushing Mayor de Blasio to step up the city’s response to the L train shutdown — and enact a plan that would be in effect 24 hours a day. Private cars should be banned from much of 14th St. to make way for buses all day every day, they say — and the Williamsburg Bridge should be restricted to cars carrying at least three people at all hours. The city’s plan, released in December, called for creating the bus-only stretch on 14th St. and slapping high occupancy restrictions on vehicles on the bridge during rush hours. They haven’t decided exactly what hours the rules will be in effect. “We need the mayor to create a 24-hour, 7-day a week plan so L train riders can get where they’re going,” said John Raskin of the Riders Alliance, warning the alternative would be chaos.

Young International Airport as Mayor Mike Duggan's team raised the idea of closing the airfield permanently. The rejection of the offer from Avflight, the fixed-base operator at the east-side airfield still best known as Detroit City Airport, came amid complaints from airport advocates that the city is needlessly letting a potential asset deteriorate. Among other signs of neglect, the city hasn't staffed a Detroit Fire Department station on airport grounds for many years, which prevents some business aircraft from landing there because of insurance concerns. Nor has the city applied for a variety of multimillion-dollar federal and state grants that could help pay for needed … [Read more...] about Detroit’s old City Airport crumbles; can it be revived?
