Live Interview with Saline City Council candidate Jack Ceo. Fire away with questions.


Sunday, 2019 Oct 13th

Saline sophomore QB Larry Robinson etched his own mark in the MHSAA football record book Friday in Saline’s 56-14 victory at Skyline. 

In the second quarter, the Hornet defense had just mounted a successful goal-line stand, and Robinson was just looking to buy the Hornets some room to make plays.

Instead, Robinson took the snap, got a great push, fought through a crowd and found a big hole. From there, it was a footrace - one Robinson was determined to win.

Benito's Pizza appears to be leaving downtown Saline. The South Ann Arbor Street building which houses the pizzeria is being advertised as a space for a potential restaurant or cafe.

The former owners of Benito's Pizza moved the restaurant from it's East Michigan Avenue plaza to downtown Saline in 2013. By 2016, the restaurant closed. It later reopened under ownership of the franchise parent company.

It's starting to feel like fall. The weather forecast calls for a rainy Friday. We'll see the sun Saturday, but the high will only reach 50. Sunday's temperatures will rebound to a high of 60, even if it won't be as sunny. All in all, not a bad weekend!

So if you're around town, here are some things to do - plucked from our free community calendar. Anyone can post to our calendar. Just register at www.thesalinepost.com/user/register.


Sometimes, a football team gets an unexpected transfer student that can give a team a huge boost.
Sometimes, that surprise was right under your nose.

Senior Cade Gilless isn’t exactly a stranger to Saline football. But he took his junior year off to focus on wrestling. When Gilless decided he needed football back in his life, the Hornets weren’t sure what they were getting.

They know now.

Gilless has been the featured running back in the Saline offense. He’s slippey. He’s got good speed. And he’s got toughness.


Think of the last two really close, tough wins for Saline football. Last week against Bedford. Last year against Rockford. What do they have in common?

Defensive playmaking in the the clutch by Noah Nelson. Against Rockford, Nelson blocked a kick that sent the game to overtime, where Saline eventually won to capture the regional final. Last week against Bedford, against a Mules offense that was looking more unstoppable with each drive, Nelson put an abrupt end to their momentum with two interceptions in the final four minutes of the game.


Saline wasted little time disposing of Lincoln as the MHSAA Division 1 playoffs began at Hornet Stadium Wednesday.

Zeke Gray scored twice as Saline defeated Ypsilanti-Lincoln, 8-0, in a game shortened due to the mercy rule.

It took the Hornets a few moments to break the seal against Lincoln. Brayden Stavros opened the scoring, kicking in a cross from Zeke Gray, who'd been awarded a free kick along the right sideline.

Virtually no one in Michigan today would guess that in the 19th century Michigan was the leader in prison reform. 

Michigan’s first constitution was the first to prohibit the death penalty, and the state’s successful responses to issues of punishment vs reform, young, first-time offenders, and female convicts will surprise you as will some of the laws that could get people in trouble.

Crime and Punishment in 19th Centural Michigan is the subject of Susan Nenadic's presentation at 2 p.m., Sunday, in the Brecon Room at the Saline District Library.
