Sylvania Township

While West Toledo is suffering with a Rat influx Sylvania Township is suffering from another form of RAT, Kaptur sign thieves

Yes, its true! A new form of unethical RAT has invaded Sylvania Township streets. The RATS are of one partisan group who refuse to respect those of a differing point of view. Today October 7th whole streets in Sylvania were stripped of Marcy Kaptur signs leaving only Richie Rich Iotts to radiate his poison. Is this the type of unethical criminals we want to run our country?

Jon takes credit for victories

In Today's Blade, Jon is taking credit for 4 victories, a judge who won with the Democratic vote split and a Sylvania Township trustee who said that the incumbents were not going to win and of course Jon also takes credit for Rob Ludeman and George Sarantou winning. He is saying that demonstrates he is good and putting an end to the corruption, but forgetting to mention that most of his candidates did not make it. If his team was so good, why did other candidates not make it? Moody? Clark? Etc?

Dead Man Walking

The latest from George Tanber about a guy that survived beyond all odds.
SYLVANIA, Ohio - As Myron "Ron" Skulas prepared to scale the old TV antenna adjacent to his Sylvania Township home, he gave little thought to any potential danger. After all, he'd climbed the tower a hundred times or more, he figured, without incident.

This day, Nov. 17, 2007, a Thursday, was different. As he worked his way toward the roof, where leaf-clogged gutters awaited, the tower, rusted at its base, snapped, sending the 285-pound Skulas crashing to the ground, beneath the fallen antenna.

Don’t Build an Ark Yet! Help is on the Way!

The dedication and diligence of long-time township resident and property owner Penny Levine is paying off for residents of the Sylvania area. For many years residents of Sylvania Township have been treading water, but since 2008 they are now drowning.

Sylvania City Council Finds A New Way To Annex Township: WATER!!!!

When the attempt to annex Sylvania Township failed last fall, the folks at OneSylvania knew it would be three years before another attempt at a merger could take place. But Doug Haynam, a OneSylvania proponent and Sylvania City Council member, has already found a way to usurp the will of Sylvania Township residents. Hold them hostage for water!

The City of Sylvania Tries Again

If at first you don't succeed, try to get elected. Apparently that's the motto of at least one, if not both candidates for the two Sylvania Township trustee positions on the ballot in November. The incumbents, Pam Hanley and DeeDee Liedel worked to protect the Sylvania Township residents when the question of a 'merger' with the city of Sylvania was on the November ballot in 2008. The merger was defeated by 72% in Sylvania Township. Feeling a little stung by their defeat, the city government might be duplicitous enough to slip in a couple of frauds.

Chief Metzger "reclaiming leadership...from a few bad apples."

"...a few bad apples." !!!!

I keep reading that remark and every time it brings me to tears, sadness, anger, frustration, disbelief--I cannot tell you the range of emotion. I do not know why anyone would even want to be a police officer anymore in the community of Sylvania Township. For, be sure, those so-called "bad apples" so callously and carelessly named are genuinely good police officers.
