Jerry Chabler says: WSPD is the most negative influence in the community

When asked about his relationship with The Blade, Jerry Chabler immediately brought up WSPD's role in the community. He said, "WSPD is probably the most negative influence in this community and has probably done more to prevent economic development in the area than any other one media outlet in the community."

TV, radio will regret print's plunge

An interesting article appeared in Variety and the Toledo Blade and WSPD were mentioned.
Let's face it: TV and radio stations rely on the local newspaper for most of their news. So what happens to those "rip and read" broadcasters as print staffs shrivel amid the draconian layoffs strafing the newspaper industry?

1370 WSPD Hosts Only Radio Reps On Hand For Port Authority Announcement

Rather than wait to read it in the paper Brian Wilson and I attended the announcement this morning of a new development of Toledo's riverfront. The Port Authority has acquired the former Chevron land in East Toledo. The site will be developed by Midwest Terminals of Toledo as part of a private-public partnership.

#1 Morning Talk Show 1370 WSPD To Host Martinko

Thursday morning I will be speaking with Richard Martinko P.E. on the topic of an Intermodal facility in our region. Mr. Martinko was at the meeting earlier this week with the Port Authority, WSPD, WTOL, and developer Brian McMahon where the need for this type of facility was discussed.

40 Yards of Pipe for 3000 Jobs? Hardly.

Intermodal freight transportation is exploding around the country and Northwest Ohio is well-placed and well-equipped to handle cargo for the tri-state area. However, we need to be smart about how we encourage development around resources like Toledo Express. Governmental agencies like the Port Authority are working to entice logistics companies into building intermodal terminals at TOL, but they also must determine which development prospects are practical and which proposals will only drain the area's limited infrastructure improvement budget. After reviewing Brian McMahon's proposal, I feel it qualifies as the latter for the following reasons.

Intermodal Update And Some Answers

I had the pleasure of speaking this morning with a number of people actively involved in the intermodal project that is a vision for Toledo Express. I went back and pulled some of handbanana's questions because he seemed a little unsure of how all this would work and confused about the process.

Let's have some fun with photoshop.

I saw on that they have Photoshop contest on their site. The contestants download one image and Photoshop it however they want. Some of them turn out pretty funny. Here's mine. I will let you guess who it is.

Here's the original

The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking. ~J.K. Galbraith

It's not easy to think for yourself sometimes. Often it's easier to listen to the people "in charge" tell you what they want you to believe without any critical questions being asked. No one wants to appear to be an ass after all. But without the critical questions and often negative appraisal we are left with people following like lambs to the slaughter.

Great Minds Think.............................................For Themselves

Sheep follow the leader. People should think for themselves. Take the facts as you know them and make up your own mind. Attend meetings so you can see for yourself what the politicians say and how they behave. For too long citizens have relied on what politicians say in front of a microphone or camera when we all know quite often they are covering something up.

From My Seat In The Grandstand.............

After reading the entire business plan and attending the council meeting Tuesday, I am more convinced than ever that the ESM is not a viable business. The plan as written by a recent grad of UT contains no real specifics on how the plan will be implemented but rather is a rehash of ideas tried within the last dozen years.
