The Saginaw Civic Center was built in 1972 by the City of Saginaw as part of an urban redevelopment program and is the only structure from that effort that wasn't razed in the 1980s. The civic center also includes an arena that has hosted a number of different hockey teams. Facing severe economic problems, the city transferred ownership to county in 2001 and the center underwent an extensive and much needed renovation that was completed in 2003. The naming rights were sold in September 2004 and the facility was renamed the Dow Event Center. (2/26/02)

There are roughly three New Yorks. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born there, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size, its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter — the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something... Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness, natives give it solidity and continuity, but the settlers give it passion. (E.B. White)
