Will this new weapon be used? If so, how much?


The army wanted a weapon which could be used against an enemy which hides behind protective walls, sandbags, etc. A weapon was developed. It did what the army wanted it to do. There were problems with its safety. Those problems were fixed. So why isn't it being used more often?
Well, according to the story, the soldier assigned to use what is called the "Punisher," (officially the XM-25) is issued that weapon instead of the M4A1 carbine that soldiers have found to be extremely effective, especially in close combat.

opioid epidemic hits small town and rural Ohio hard


I will link to an article which delineates what a huge problem heroine and other opioid products have become in recent years. And, the main problem, in Ohio at least, is not in the central parts of our larger cities. The problem seems to be the worst, proportionately, in Ohio's small towns and rural areas!

New WLS Website

is up and running. Satirical district news. Pretty funny!


Wonder how long it will be before its subpoena'd!

"It takes a Clinton to..."


These are facts reported by Linda Tripp on the Larry King show (and apparently many others elsewhere). Title of this article: It takes a Clinton to Murder a Village


And of course, there is the subsequent (to these unconscionable murders) gbmt trial against remaining Branch Davidians (acquitted). How many U.S. citizens born just before or since 1993 even know about this?

Police officers take wonderful, humane actions every day...which are too seldom reported.


A West Virginia state trooper, Derek Graham, pulled over a very drunk driver, and found a very smelly, unkempt young child in the back seat. The child was covered in vomit from head to toe, had only a diaper on, and smelled of vomit, urine, and feces. As Officer Graham put it, "It was almost just my dad instinct popped into play,” Graham said. “Forget state trooper, forget law enforcement officer. It was dad that took over, [and I] said [to myself], ‘I gotta clean this little guy up.'”

Former center for choice building coming down this morn

A great danger to Toledo is the unfettered shedding
Of innocent blood. God judges nations/ cities for that.
This abortion building was typical - near a minority neighborhood , high % of black babies terminated here , fulfilling planned parenthood/ Margaret Sanger's wishes of
Limiting minority population .
This plot will become a memorial/prayer garden .

Baumhower Sentencing Uodate

A pre-sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 26, 2016. Sentencing date is scheduled for October 21, 2016

Let's hope the judge does the right thing.

Baumhower's friends, many who are running for Washington local school board and 2017, are pretending like he has not been found guilty of domestic violence. We are sure to be in for an interesting election at that time!

Hickey ran past the WLS Admin Building on Tuesday

It was at about noon. He was shirtless and wearing a skimpy pair of blue running shorts. He came down Woodley, rounded past the Kern house, and hopped from the street to the sidewalk. He trotted on WLS property towards West Lincolnshire and directly in front of the window of his old office/the new superintendent's office.

Funny...not funny.

Baumhower's DV Sentencing - This Friday August 26 at 8:30

Jeremy Baumhower was found guilty of Domestic Violence last month in a decision handed down by Judge M. Scott Ramey in Sylvania, OH. On November 3, 2015 - the day after the contentious WLS election - Baumhower was confronted by his wife after she found evidence that WLS teacher and Hickey trouble maker Jamie Squibb had been in her home (for the SECOND time) while she was at work.

Because our Children are better than we are....TOLEDO TAKES THREE!!


I am asking that we help our teachers in the district with supplies, volunteering, books...etc....

Five minutes of our time or five dollars from our pockets can truly mean a lot a classroom.

There are a few teachers in the area that have reached out to me that are struggling to get supplies that they need. If you have are able to please reach out to me by leaving a comment here or at rebeccaralley@mail.com.

Something as simple as a pencil could help make a child our next big journalist in Toledo!

Toledo Take Three

WOW...such a short word and seems simple, yet not quite big enough to cover my thoughts right now.

First, l think as a community we should welcome back the students that have started or are starting school. They most likely are entering new classrooms and who can't remember that nervousness in the pit of your stomach when you started school. Who is my teacher? What am I going to wear? Will he/she like me? Maybe the kids won't sit by me at lunch.

Far too many charter schools are terrible; Ohio's are among the very worst!

I am adding two disclaimers here. First of all, although the long-time President of the American Federation of Teachers, Albert Shanker, was a strong advocate of the value of charter schools, long before they became a reality, because most modern charter schools have morphed into giant sinkholes where taxpayer money disappears, the American Federation of Teachers opposes most of the current state and federal statutes governing current charter schools. And this video came to me via the American Federation of Teachers.

Watching the many posters on here become unhinged

Sitting back and watching the posters on here has brought hours of entertainment in the last several months.

I haven't even had to make a post. Just come in and read and it's been hilarious. So many have become almost completely unhinged and just keep writing and writing much to my enjoyment.

Thanks for the laughs.



Have you seen the video of Hillary Clinton having some sort of seizure? It's really interesting. Thank goodness that the government-controlled media isn't reporting on this so that the legions of Hillary lovers can continue to think that nothing is wrong.

More info revealed on the Khan man


Rev Jesse Peterson calls this guy the "Khan man" [as in con-man]. Peterson's info in this article includes what I have read elsewhere, that Khan believes that all laws should be subordinated, by Muslims, to Shariah law. My my, just where in the constitution does he find THAT establishment of religion?


The mainstream media, naturally is burying this info. Which basically makes them liars.

More info revealed on the Khan man


There must be a way to delete double posts, but have not figured it out yet.

What sacrifices have Bill OR Hillary Clinton made for this country?


Can't think of a one. And Chelsea was free to enlist in the military to demonstrate her patriotism. She never did, and famously said out loud one time, during her daddy's presidency something to the effect that her parents wouldn't like seeing a military man visiting the White House in his very decorated uniform.

These two - beelzebubba and his endlessly cuckolded spouse....have sacrificed nothing for this country, unless feeding for decades at the public trough counts as some kind of "sacrifice".


Washington Local Family and Friends

Besides the heat wave; is anyone else ready for school to start? Love my children but I do believe I am ready and very excited for this new school year to start!

I am excited for our community. Through turmoil and chaos we have grown. From my personal experiences in the district, I am so proud that the majority has been able to overlook the ones that have been negative and the ones that do not even participate or live in our district.

Let our children hit the ground running and achieve even higher limits this year!!!!

Side note: how many people have made it to a



CNN, MSNBC, and WSPD radio—what do they have in common? Other than low ratings compared to their competitors, they devote most of their time to berating Donald Trump—yet clamor to get him on their shows.

I listened to the Scott Sands show on August 2, from 4:30-6 p.m.; and he devoted about 75 of that 90 minutes to making fun of Trump (admittedly, he spent some of the time talking about “gun nuts"). This is coupled with the debacle of the previous morning when Fred LeFebvre didn’t think he was talking to the real Donald Trump.

I’ve heard both of these talk show hosts say they won’t vote for Hillary and probably not Trump; but when I listen to them, their comments heavily lean toward demeaning Trump (with a very occasional swipe at Hillary). Now, they would probably say, “Trump just does and says so many more outrageous things.” That’s great. Then see how an AM radio talk station survives with just Hillary supporters.

Time to boycott WSPD sponsors. Here's a short list to start with:
