I am shocked at the discussions happening about it being criminal to leak executive session information by board members. It has gotten to a point that two people filed Ohio Ethics Commission complaints alleging a Washington Local Board member is doing something illegal and against Ohio ethics laws. Superintendent Hickey is also alleging he will want to make similar complaints (Hickey should know better).
The more I here Republicans speak the more it sounds like they are reading the Nazi Playbook. Is this my imagination?
I was recently asked a question about renting videos recently, and it got me thinking about how much I pay for the Lucas County libraries. After some investigation and understanding how much subscription services cost, one has to wonder if the library is even needed anymore.
I am linking to an article about the best actions to take if you happen to be in one of those rare, but growing, mass shooting situations. I hope that no one here ever needs to use the information presented here, but life has a way of throwing us into situations which are unforeseeable. So just in case, here's the link:
Oddly enough, many Chiefs' of Police Departments are advocating SECOND AMENDMENT rights for residents of larger cities!

"How Does Sugar Affect Your Brain? Turns Out In A Very Similar Way To Drugs And Alcohol"
The Guardian covers new research which finds that pot damages your brain. Don't tell this to those who want to legalize it, because that would ruin their argument on making it legal.

It appears the Iran agreement will just be an agreement between ourselves. Iran did not sign it and their parliament will not vote on it. What a sweet deal for them. We look like idiots.
President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review.
Last night I watched the murder of Jordan Davis Documentary. I was pleased with the jurys guilty verdict of Mr. Dunn, but I was amazed that the first trial ended in a mistrial. JORDAN Davis was shot and killed by Mr. Dunn for playing loud music and using profanity at a gas station. I quess you don't have to be eatiing Skittles and drinking a soft drink to murdered in Florida. It appears Mr. Dunn's action of entitlement got him life in prison plus 90 years.
According to a Sandusky Register review of ProPublica data, Marcy has one of the worst voting attendance record out of any the other lawmakers in the state of Ohio. Only one is worse than her.
Hey Sandusky Register, who cares? Marcy could stop going to DC at all and she will still be re-elected. But Marcy does care about Timberstone Junior High students. She missed a vote last year to try to find them.
U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, has missed more votes during the current session of Congress than almost every other member of Ohio's House delegation.
According to Cleveland.com Marcy is one of the supporters of the safe screening proposal by House Republicans.
Northeast Ohio Democrats Tim Ryan and Marcy Kaptur were among 47 Democrats who joined with the majority of House Republicans on Thursday to pass a controversial bill that would increase government background checks done before Syrian or Iraqi refugees are admitted to the United States.
There is a site out there about Patrick Hickey and Jeremy Baumhower which probably steps across the lines of what is acceptable and what is not. Public figures have a high threshold to prove slander and libel and they have to prove there is malice in the presentation of speech. In this context, the phrase refers to knowledge or reckless lack of investigation, rather than its ordinary meaning of malicious intent.
According to the Blade:
Washington Local Schools Superintendent HIckey placed on paid leave again
The Washington Local Schools board of education has launched a new investigation of its embattled superintendent and placed him on paid leave while the board looks into new, unspecified allegations against him.
Patrick Hickey left the district’s administrative center on Lincolnshire Boulevard after a closed-door executive session tonight. He did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
I am providing a link to an article which shows -- unsurprisingly -- that those states with the highest percentage of citizens with college educations, also, generally, spend the most on k-12 education, AND have higher median incomes than do most other states.

The ConcernedStudent1950 right on the cusp of success went full retard yesterday.
Why would you be scared of journalists documenting a news story? The students (and at least one professor) are harassing a young journalist who dared to take photos in public which is entirely legal and protected by the 1st Amendment. Why are modern liberals so scared of a free press?
I know GZ has some good ideas.
Terri Kern also came across this particular nugget.
Late last week, Patrick Hickey sent an email to staff telling them not to communicate with a board member who was asking questions about his leadership.
I am not sure why he thinks this is appropriate because it is his actions that have aroused the curiosity of the board and community to try really to get to the bottom of what goes on in the district.
Washington Local reprimands Greenwood principal Bill Colon for illegal campaigning during open house
Terri Kern was able to pull this nugget of information out from Washington Local and I would have to applaud them for doing the right thing. This is much more than what Sylvania did when their employees were caught campaigning during school hours. Attached is the written reprimand of Bill Colon for making announcements during open house advocating for candidates.
