89.1 WEMU

Hidden In Plain Sight

An occasional series that will introduce you to some of the people, places, and things that help comprise who we are as a community.  These are parts of our community that, in some way, are making a difference, and yet, you may not be at all familiar with them.  That’s why this feature series is called “Hidden in Plain Sight.”

In our daily drives this time of year, we frequently encounter cyclists on the paths and roadways around town.  More often than not, we continue on our journey without another thought about the person we see riding to points unknown.  Sometimes, there is a more going on than meets the eye. In this installment of WEMU’s “Hidden in Plain Sight" series, Jorge Avellan takes you inside a program that is helping those with disabilities pedal to greater independence.

We’ve created a new feature here on 89.1 WEMU we’re calling “Hidden In Plain Sight.”  It focuses on some of the people or places in our community that you may not have known about or were familiar with.

Today, we take you to Michigan Ladder Company.  89.1 WEMU's Jorge Avellan spent time with the folks at the Ypsilanti factory that makes products found everywhere from Washtenaw County, to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, to the White House
