Arrogance of power, round two

Mayor Carty and his dog Scout

November 1, 2007 - Your tax dollars pay for city offices located inside One Government Center. People who work there are prohibited from bringing their pets to work for a number of reasons, including health and safety. Yet, Mayor Finkbeiner brings his dog nearly every day. 13abc's I-Team reporter Ronnie Dahl has been investigating whether he's breaking the rules.

Pets are not allowed in One Government Center. But assistance dogs are and that seems to be how Scout is gaining access to the mayor's workplace.

Scout was on his way to becoming an assistance dog when a medical condition sidelined his career. He developed arthritis in his elbow and that disqualified him from being a working assistance dog. So, the mayor adopted the yellow lab.

He's now a regular fixture at One Government Center, attending press conferences, taking walks with city employees and even enjoying curbside service at pickup time.

Bishop's Lies Bought by Toledo Blade

After reading The Blade's recent article on Jim Bishop, I am dumbfounded that a man running for judge could be so arrogant to simultaneously act as a defense attorney for his wife Maureen Bishop, in the same court that he was appointed prosecuter. I would call that a major conflict of interest when your fellow co-workers are prosecuting a case against you.

Property rights become privileges
By Mark Hillman
08/29/2007

Anyone who has grown up on a farm or ranch hears this maxim: "Take care of the land, and the land will take care of you."

A farmer or rancher who doesn't take care of the soil will soon find that the soil won't produce enough to make ends meet.

Answers awaited on Dems' meeting

The charter indicates that council is nonpartisan since ballots for election have no partisan identification.

So when the eight-person Democratic majority gathered last week to address internal party rancor, Mrs. Shultz concluded they held a clandestine session in violation of Ohio's open-meetings law.
