Corporate cash does the talking

President Obama and the government were called socialist for passing a weak health-care bill. Now that BP's oil spill has reached epic proportions, hypocrites ask: Where's the government?

Follow the money. Walk down K Street in Washington, where corporate lobbyists "reflect" the will of America.

Come Welcome Our American Idol!

TOLEDO FREE PRESS - ENDORSES 2 MAYORAL CANDIDATES?

Early this year, when he was the only declared candidate for mayor of Toledo, I met with Keith Wilkowski for a talk on politics, the economy and Toledo’s future.

Wilkowski is a deliberate thinker, one who seems to process complete thoughts before speaking — “uh” and “um” are not among his linguistic handicaps.

THE TOLEDO FREE PRESS ENDORSES MAYORAL CANDIDATE

The Toledo Free Press Endorses Mayoral Candidate Mike Bell.

There is a world of difference between leading through intimidation and leading through inspiration. Mike Bell is the best of a great field of candidates because he understands that difference.

Bell literally put his life on the line for Toledo, and he has parlayed the respect and experience he earned into a career that took him to Columbus as the state’s fire marshal. He is a proven leader with experience at the top of city government, and no one else has that the inside view.

TOLEDO CITY COUNCIL RACE - TOLEDO FREE PRESS

On the Sept. 15 ballot, voters will choose six of 23 candidates for Toledo City Council. The top 12 vote getters will move on to November’s ballot. If Issue 2 passes, that number will be reduced to six moving on to November’s ballot.

Some candidates declare a party; some do not. Toledo’s municipal elections are non-partisan; on the ballot, there will be no party affiliation noted.

"Extreme" misinformation

Local blogger Maggie Thurber recently wrote an article in the Toledo Free Press, and completely mischaracterized the findings of a Department of Homeland Security report on right-wing extremists.

Editorials support the Intermodal - yet silence from City leaders

Everyone seems lining up in favor of the intermodal. The silence coming from City Council and the Mayor's office is quite deafening. When will Toledo's leaders take proactive action and begin to pave the way for this? They sure took action to say they did not want the State to take money away from the Turnpike. Why is there an odd silence coming from the City leadership on this issue?
