Ohio’s Tax Code Hinders Economic Growth

In May 2009, Forbes ranked Toledo as the worst job market among mid-sized cities, citing massive industry decline in the past decade. However, the plight of our community is not isolated; Cleveland, Dayton and Youngstown make the list for worst job markets in the nation, and businesses continue to hemorrhage from our borders. National Cash Register abandoned Dayton over the summer, and this month American Greetings announced plans to possibly relocate from its Brooklyn headquarters.

Still on the Job, but at Half the Pay
By LOUIS UCHITELLE
MECHANICSVILLE, Va. — The dark blue captain’s hat, with its golden oak-
leaf clusters, sits atop a bookcase in Bryan Lawlor’s home, out of
reach of the children. The uniform their father wears still displays
the four stripes of a commercial airline captain, but the hat stays
home. The rules forbid that extra display of authority, now that Mr.
Lawlor has been downgraded to first officer.

Toledo’s children

I always look for confirmation when exposing people or situations. To expound on the topic “Toledo’s Children,” I have been battling with myself as to whether or not I should release this topic with my opinions however harsh they may be. My confirmation came from two sources, one an individual who heads one of the organizations and one I have been debating on whether or not I am being too harsh, the second came from a full page ad taken out in the Toledo Blade by the Toledo Blade titled “We the people.” That ad stated in it’s entirety, “Eight out of ten people read The Blade.

Cut Government Waste, Reduce the Debt - Barbara Sears

As a mother, I have always taught my sons the necessity of living within their means and avoiding accumulating debt. Especially with the onset of the economic recession, I have stressed the importance of trimming down excess expenditures during an unstable economy. But as the government continues to grow its power and become increasingly embedded in our everyday lives, it also continues to inefficiently consume our tax dollars. As Ohio’s families struggle to make ends meet, the last thing we need is for government growth and spending to spiral out of control.

Upso FTW!

From the Toledo Blade:Toledoan Hostetler, 31, is one of six invited to design a premium 16-ounce bottle for Mountain Dew that debuts as a limited edition on 9/9/09. Silk screened on an aluminum vessel with a pry-off cap, Hostetler's design sports 10 eyes, each about two inches wide. The bottom eye is a closed line of lashes. In an abbreviated spiral climbing toward the cap, eyes open gradually until the topmost eye pops with an emerald iris the size of a quarter.

“The idea is that by the time you finish the bottle you're wide awake,” says Mr. Hostetler, whose contribution is attributed to UPSO, his creative moniker.
