Vasquez: New TPS Board Member

So why did the board take time to do interviews ? Its seems they had their person pre-picked , and they sure don't listen to the voters' selection. I emailed all the board members, and didn't get the courtesy of even a reply from any of them.

HERE is a statesman

Ron Paul, the only clear-headed statesman in the US Congress, was also the only vote against a House resolution strongly defending how Israel has countered Palastinian rocket attacks by smart-bombing the Gaza Strip. More than 100 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed since last Wednesday. Before you get your underwear in a knot, consider this in Paul's own words.

Minnesota bars beat the ban

Minnesota bars are once again allowing smoking by calling themselves theaters. A quirk of the Minnesota smoking ban is that it allows actors on stage to smoke. Hey, presto! We're all actors on the stage of life, right? As the immortal bard said, all the world's a stage, and we are all players upon this earth.



Hey SwampBubbles bloggers:

If your a Hockey Fan and want to see the BlueJackets vs. the Redwings, the Ohio Hockey News ( based out of Toledo) is sponsoring 2 bus trips to Nationwide Arena, one of the nicest in the NHL.

So if you need a hockey fix go to www.ohiohockeynews.com and go to the last page of the magazine for the information.

AND THE BEAT GOES ON - audio included

"It's for the kids" is the battle cry of TPS and today that cry was cemented in the nomination and appointment of Bob Vasquez to the TPS board seat vacated by Robert Torres. The seat was handed over to Mr. Vasquez by a three to one vote at the board meeting this morning. Darlene Fisher being the dissenting vote. With the appointment of Mr. Vasquez, there will no longer be any speculation on any votes coming before the board. Darlene once again is the Lone Ranger.

Thanks Swampbubbles bloggers

A fix for Toledo's ills

The perennial problem of the Erie Street Market, what to do? Well, Ben Konop has an idea. God knows the ESM needs help. From the local Fox affiliate: "The Glass City's been losing jobs for years. The Erie Street Market downtown has been a failing venture. But Lucas County Commissioner Ben Konop proposes a plan to fix both problems at the same time in this edition of Rant and Rave."

Two students were stabbed today at Start High School and the school is on lock down. I don't know the extent of the injuries but it is ironic that this would happen at a good school after passage of Issue #7.
