Inside and outside of Oakland

Patterson, former driver in America's Thanksgiving Parade?

  James Cram, former driver for Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson who was left a quadriplegic in an August 2012 accident that also injured Patterson, will be in America's Thanksgiving Parade, Patterson's office says.

  The idea was Cram's, who suggested he and Patterson be a part of this year's televised Thanksgiving Day parade in downtown Detroit Nov. 28, a Patterson spokesman said.
  Cram and Patterson both use wheelchairs because of the severity of their injuries, though Cram's injuries were much more severe. They will supposedly be pushed in the parade by Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel.
  The Parade Company could not immediately be reached. A voice message said the company was taking a one-day Halloween sabbatical before the final push to parade day.
  Messages to Ficano and Hackel weren't immediately returned.
