Today was the City Wide Block Watch Picnic held at Ottawa Park. Since it was held on city property, I assumed that it was OK to pass out literature for Cheryl Catlin's campaign for the Toledo School Board. Wrong! We were first told that we could not pass out literature. So we stopped. We were then told that we could not actively campaign, such as talking to people.
"Defense attorneys Alan Konop and Peter Wagner have argued through motions and in several hearings before Judge James Jensen that the blood sample and Breathalyzer tests administered to Mr. Groszewski are not admissible for several reasons, including because they were acquired during the course of an investigation by his employer and not by a police investigation.
Toledo Police are seeking this man, Karl Jeffery Johnson,(50) of Toledo in connection with a warrant issued for his arrest today.

13abc is reporting that Carty was ticketed for parking in handicap spot and he also left dog in car. Carty said he parked there because his dog was in the car and the spot had shade and the spaces were empty. He said he was getting treatment for a partially torn Achilles tendon. He said he would pay the ticket. He did not have a handicap sticker.

Along with the handshakes, fund-raisers, and paperwork of campaign season come accusations of state election law violations.
At least two candidates have complaints filed against them with the Ohio Elections Commission.
The complaints of ONE PERSON caused this to take effect.
I know what you're going to say, well, it's ONLY after 8 PM. When does it get dark during the summer, for God's sake? Ridiculous.
For the last hour and a half I have had to endure a constant barrage of fireworks from both east, west, and south. Nothing to the north. Anyone else hearing this?
From an outside in perspective, the Toledo police seem to be above legitimate criticism because of the nature of their job (and the union). No layoffs can ever happen and their employee numbers are never high enough by their standards even though the police waste tax money and resources just like every other bloated gov service does.
Hey! What happened to the hippie days? >:(

"New Jersey lawmakers today will look to stomp out smokers lighting up in cars with minors, as they take up a bill aimed at protecting youth from secondhand smoke by banning the practice and levying $100 fines."
Last week our saloon received a notice of an alleged smoking ban violation. An anonymous caller reported seeing a person smoking in a restricted area (assumedly in the bar??) at or around 9:00 on 5/5.

The group "Dancers for Democracy" was rallying in Columbus this afternoon, among them, Deja Vu dancers from here in Toledo. They are protesting senate bill 16, because they say it will put adult entertainment out of business.
