As an American girl who is about to turn 7, Maddie Allen plans to celebrate her birthday in a very American Girl way. “We have a special American Girl tradition,” says her mom, Sokim Allen. “We share the same birthday — March 5 — and ever since she turned 3 and got her first American Girl doll, we go to the American Girl doll store at the Mall of America for our birthday to go shopping and eat lunch or dinner at their restaurant. Afterward, we share a birthday banana split.” Unfortunately, this is the last birthday that the mom and daughter from Savage will be able to celebrate locally in this way: This week, American Girl announced plans to close its Mall of America location — as well as its store in Boston — effective March 20. From now on, Minnesotans wanting the American Girl retail experience will either need to head more than 400 miles east to the Chicago location or more than 400 miles south to the Kansas store.

John Gallagher Detroit Free Press Published 7:10 AM EDT Sep 15, 2018 Our fractious debate over tax incentives for development might reach a consensus quicker if not for a gaping void in our knowledge — whether incentives actually work. Tax incentives get derided as big bucks for billionaires, even as proponents say they're crucial to the revival of a city like Detroit. Hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake.. So over the years, I've listened to economists and academic researchers who have studied tax incentives like the kind Ford will get to revamp the Michigan Central Station. And these academics more or less unanimously say "no," that incentives like those coming Ford's way aren't needed because almost all projects getting incentives would happen anyway without them.
