Who Will Become Owners Of The McMorran Pavilion And Tower?

mcmorran towerThere continues to be discussion about what will happen with ownership of the McMorran Pavilion.  Recently St. Clair County Community College entered into discussion concerning a possible land deal that would involve a transfer of ownership of the junior arena.  As those talks continue, it is reported that the Port Huron Minor Hockey Association has offered $100,000 to purchase the Pavilion.  The Hockey Association says the nonprofit has the means to make the purchase, while Port Huron City Manager James Freed says this is a political move that has no financial backing.  The original offer of a possible land swap includes SC4 becoming the owners of the McMorran Pavilion, the McMorran Tower and Murphy parking lot for a purchase price of $1.  Following that, the city would get rights to develop the land between the 10th Street Bridge and fire hall along the northeast bank of the Black River.  The hockey association, wants only the pavilion and tower, the parking lot would not be included.  Talks between all organizations are expected to continue.

On Tuesday of this week a St.Clair Shores woman convicted of killing and dismembering her adult son was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.  At the hearing, Judge Richard Caretti told 61-year-old Donna Scrivo, that the mandatory sentence doesn’t seem enough for the crime she committed.  Bags containing body parts of her 32-year-old son, Ramsay Scrivo, were found last year throughout  St. Clair and China townships. Donna Scrivo, his mother, had reported him missing a few days prior to the gruesome findings of the garbage bags.  The accused continues to insist that a masked man killed her son and held her hostage.  Video of a woman matching Scrivo’s description was shown at trial purchasing a number of items that may have been used in the crime.  At trial, Scrivo admitted she wasn’t “mother of the year.”  The woman  was convicted of first-degree murder and mutilation of a body.
