SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Senator John McCain said Wednesday that he wanted 45 new nuclear reactors to be built in the United States by 2030, a goal that he called “as difficult as it is necessary.”

Democrats sell America to OPEC

"...President Bush urged Congress on Wednesday to lift its long-standing ban on offshore oil and gas drilling, saying the United States needs to increase its energy production. Democrats quickly rejected the idea."

Troy Neff Show: Ben Konop says, $7.50 is better than 0.

Troy and Ben disagree about $7.50 per hour being a living wage.

Do you think Ben is right? Are things that bad out there?

Patrick talks to Troy about some of the threats and innuendos made by Jon Stainbrook. He said, “Mr. Stainbrook had been telling me that he is going to fire me as one of his first jobs as the party chairman.”
Also included, is an interview with Lynn Olman. When asked about the numerous complaints made to the Ohio Secretary of State he said they were groundless and false.

Troy Neff is interviewed by Andrew Z about the Charles Fackelman Case on 92.5 KISS FM

It's been a strange case. What started as an alleged road rage incident in June 2007 in Whiteford Township, turned into something more when the father of one of the victims threatened one of the suspects. The father ended up being sentenced to prison himself. But 1230 AM WCWA morning show host Troy Neff says he can't believe the way this is going.

Used Google maps to locate a place in the city and noticed that the street view is enabled now.

Pretty nifty

Warning that America's security is at stake, Senator John McCain called yesterday for conservation, renewable energy, and more aggressive exploration, steps he said would help to end US dependence on Middle East oil.

In laying out his energy policy, the presumptive Republican nominee sought to woo voters angry over $4-a-gallon gas and to carve out his independence from President Bush.

Controversial FDA approved drug claims another life

 The FDA won't touch this because it is a political hot
button.  But scores of young women suffer big side effects ,
including death.    This death occured in the U.K.  Many

Stop by this post and say hi. I am wondering if something is wrong with the comments. Comment here to prove me wrong.

Tim Russert Was Also a Christian

I didn't really watch Face The Nation, but whenever I saw Tim Russert being a moderator or in an interview, I liked him. I wasn't aware of his strong faith in Jesus. I found this article here: http://www.assistnews.net/Stories/2008/s08060084.htm

If the American economy is to recover, taxes at all levels must be lowered, economist Arthur Laffer told a Toledo audience yesterday.

Mr. Laffer, best known for the Laffer Curve and for advocating so-called supply-side economics during the Reagan administrations, spoke at the Toledo Club to more than 100 clients of Huntington Funds, a subsidiary of Huntington National Bank.

North Toledo woman's home saved by church people

I like to try to find local news stories for this
grroup- Wonderful , could you help me on this ?
This is a posting of the Cedar Creek
video this week. A couple from there took on a poor
lady's home in the North End. They got it totally remodeled
. The pictures are toward the end to this good video.

For the record....and for some it is long

Lisa Renee has compiled a list of publicly accessible records based on the previous and past leadership of the Republican Party. Why is this important?

Topless Soccer

I’m no soccer fan, but I’d watch this…

VIENNA, June 15 (Reuters) - Whether it has any bearing on Monday's crunch Euro 2008 match between the two countries is debatable but Austria drew first blood on Sunday when their topless women's soccer team beat Germany 10-5.

The traditional swapping of shirts afterwards was not an option as the six-a-side teams wore nothing but thongs, with the national colours painted on to their bare skin.


I could say there was a conspiracy....

but that would not be true. The access denied error was a result of popularity, not a well planned conspiracy. The reason the site was down was because you have made it so popular the Web host noticed (which is not a good thing). You may notice some things turned off because I had to be a good neighbor and I will slowly re-implement features as the site is fine tuned.

Iowa's Resillient Residents

The people of Iowa are a shining example of how American communities can really come together in times of need and disaster. They are not whining, not blaming the Feds, not shooting at rescuers and I haven't seen any reports of looting either. A testament to the Midwest mentality.
