Has the Blade gone too far in their reporting on Stainbrook? My 10 observations

Right now there are two things that are making people shake their heads wondering what is going on. 1. Why is Carty for some odd reason not wanting to help one of the best development opportunities in a long time-the Intermodal at the Toledo Express airport? And 2.

Out of the frying pan and into the power grid
http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-9961038-54.html
It is about a company that is making generators for restaurants to create energy and heat water using the old cooking oil. Pretty cool. I have pondered myself converting an older diesel car or truck off of cooking oil and driving that to and from work.
