I have made several updates to the Web site. First the HTML Rich Text editor is even better than before. If you have not enabled it, you can do so. I am using it now and it is so much nicer. You can turn it on by going to "My Account" , click on the "Edit" tab, then right at the top, there is TinyMCE Rich Text settings. You can enable it there.
Site Updates: HTML Editor is now stable, retroactive bubble points, points for rating content, menu test, and blogs for everyone
Here's a question for you. If someone had a great idea that would bring new business and jobs to the area, but Carty just flat out didnt like the guy, would Carty stand in his way even knowing full well that his stance would be detrimental to the area??
As Mayoral bootlicker, Brian Schwarz never had too much positive to say about the intermodal, ex:
until McMahon presents an end user for the property, the mayor doesn't see an immediate need to sign off on the easement, said Brian Schwartz, Finkbeiner's spokesman.
There is a phrase that I have heard tossed around by a few candidates last year and repeated today, which I wonder why it is ever said:
"When you bargain collectively, particularly in Ohio, you give and take," Mr. Ford said.
If you have not seen this you should. Monica Conyers gets testy and begins debating a child when the child asks her about her behavior for calling the Detroit City Council President Shrek. BTW is calling someone Shrek a bad thing? The young lady, who is an 8th Grader, seems to have more sense than Conyers, and I would vote for her for council.
The SwampBubbles store now has Support Toledo Intermodal items. There is no markup on the items.

Wouldn't Scout would look good in one of these?
Corie Tucker, Asst. Men's Basketball Coach - Student Advisor Admissions, Owens Community College
Talks about Owens Basketball and the local talent in Toledo. He elaborates on William Buford and the "word on the street" of Buford possibly not being able to play for The Ohio State Univ. because he has not passed his OGT test, which all students must pass to graduate high school.
It seems there are better ways to spend tax money.

The Senate Environment and public works committee had a meeting this week.
This quote is from the Senate minority communications director.
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?
Earlier today, Brian Schwartz resigned. What do you think about this?
On the show, Mecklenborg talks about bill requiring state records to be kept in English.
I attended the Discussions on Race at The University of Toledo on May 22, 2008. I found the discussions to be juvenile and insignificant. The only thing that got accomplished is that everyone agreed there is racism in America, but no ne had a good definition of what it is. Does anyone know what it is?
Man, is he even going to be able to make it to the general election? (link)
The Toledo Board of Education voted 4 to 1 early this morning after 1.5 hours in executive session. Darlene Fisher stated she supported teachers and the economic settlement based upon assurances from the Treasurer that money was available and that the budget would remain balanced through the 2010 school year - the length of the contract is two years.
County Health director David Grossman is cutting a rat control position because of lack of funding. In the meantime, Grossman is pressing ahead with his state-unfunded enforcement of smoking in bars. "They aren't getting away with it," Grossman stated. Looks like Grossman's jihad against smokers is taking front seat to rat eradication.
3 smoke-ban complaints snuffed
I can't believe this :)
Appeals court declares that there was no reason to remove the children from the FLDS ranch. This is a great day for children and families everywhere. At last someone did the right thing. The next step is to return the children to their mothers.
Democrats attempting to use the emergency war-funding bill to line the pockets of the country's largest abortion provider.
A conservative congressman is blasting Democrats for attempting to use the emergency war-funding bill to line the pockets of the country's largest abortion provider.
