Michigan Congressman Wants 50-Cent Tax Hike on Every Gallon of Gas


What a flippin' idiot. This is so stupid I wont be surprised if they dont try it here in Toledo!


We have done an extensive study of The Toledo Plan and feel that it should be abolished as it is supposed to rid the school system of “bad” veteran teachers through evaluation, instead it is being used to rid the school system of first year teachers through peer mentoring. Its target, primarily, is the non traditional first year teacher.

McCain Suspends Staffer for Circulating Obama-Pastor Video

Child's Dying Wish to See Dad Unfulfilled

Sad. Its unfortunate that something couldn't be worked out - not necessarily for the Dad's sake, but for the little girl's. He's scheduled to begin a work release program in August, but the girl won't likely make it until then.

(Yes, if he hadn't gotten into trouble in the first place, he could have been there this whole time for his daughter. But I still feel sympathy for the kid though.)

What TV channel was the green energy special on the region on (CNN or CNBC)?

I heard on the radio this morning that there was a program on the alternative energy on one of the major cable channels. Does anyone know which one? Was it CNN?

Another GOP scandal

National Republican Congressional Committee officials acknowledged publicly today that they have found discrepancies in their books of more than a million dollars and evidence that the NRCC's former treasurer, Christopher Ward, made "several hundred thousand dollars" worth of unauthorized wire transfers out of the committee that appear to have ended up in Ward's own bank accounts...[

When Ohio gambling is legal

It always bugs the hell out of me when I read about some church or charity throwing their annual "gaming" events. The Ohio bluenoses, who rage about slot machines and roulette wheels in bars and other businesses, suddenly go soft and mushy for their local fundraiser, grab their wallets, and go off to spend the evening putting money on a spinning wheel and playing blackjack.

New Newspaper Coming To Toledo


I was talking with a friend, and he told me that he heard there is a new newspaper coming to Toledo in April. He said the release date is going to be on March 31.

I hear it is going to be a community paper with all types of news…but the paper is going to be strictly online.

Write your own story. What is this snowy owl thinking when it recently landed on a house in West Toledo?

Toledo, the center of prostitution?

A disturbing set of stories in the last few days and weeks. Do we have a prostitution problem? These are not murders or assaults, but it is sure getting regional coverage in a negative way. I bet these are not a part of the statistics that the city puts out on crime.
