                  A great deal of fanfare ushered in what was supposed to be a 146-million dollar film studio and school in Allen Park late last summer. Less than a year later, and despite lucrative tax deals from the state, Unity Studios could be in jeopardy -- reportedly over unpaid rent and lax financial reporting by studio executives. Michigan's west side saw similar excitement over another new film studio project announced in early February. But information has surfaced that raises serious questions about the state's use of tax subsidies for this project. http://www.mackinac.org/12804
