WSPD NEEDS A MAKE-OVER

I love local radio. I've always resisted subscribing to services like SiriusXM because I like live local radio--regardless of if I'm home or away.

Lately, I just can't stand listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD. It reminds me of CKLW's Saturday afternoon garage sale program where people call in and say things like, "I've got a beautiful ceramic Dalmatian that I'll sell for $37."

Vicki Donovan-Lyle campaign finance issues

A citizen emailed me this on Sunday - apparently Vicki has yet to file normal campaign finance reports. (Disclosure - I am not a fan of Vicki and will not be voting for her today nor ever again.)
=========
As you are aware I had filed a complaint against Kevin Haddad regarding misinformation on his campaign signs.

Vicki Donovan-Lyle appears to be incompetent in various aspects of political life in addition to her inexcusable failure to pay property tax on more than one occasion. I submitted a complaint regarding irregularities in her filings with the Election Commission.

Trump and Finkbeiner are more similar than you think - don't fall for it

I am as shocked as the rest of you on how Donald Trump got to the point he is currently at because I was one of the people thinking he would implode at any time. But the personality he displays and the excusing of his bad behavior has made me uncomfortable. Trump's rise and character traits have some eerie parallels with former Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner.

I am scratching my head about how he got this way, but the similarities between Donald and Carty that are too close for my comfort and I hope that other people see it too.

Kevin Haddad signs wrongly claim re-election - Haddad says they were vandalized

Tom Troy covers Kevin Haddad's sign debacle where either he forgot to cover up the "re" or it fell off or was pulled off. Tip to any candidate - don't reuse your sign unless you permanently alter them, because it is easy for the sticker to fall off. Kevin has used his signs multiple times and his "Working for you" assumes that he is already "working" therefore, it is not unreasonable for people to look at your sign with suspicion.

Two Sylvania teens lives change - it is not better in Sylvania

The Toledo Blade is reporting the names of the two teens who are now charged with forcing a developmental child to lick a push pop dipped in a urinal then punching and pushing the kids. Bullying is a common thing in schools, and many are affected by it, but what is so interesting is how much these kids are taught it is wrong during the school year so what makes matters worse is that these kids did it anyway.

Anyone watch? What a bunch of Jack off's. This is the best entertainment on TV. LOL

GuestZero's last post

I don't do this often, but this time, it is worth it.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform all of you that GuestZero won't be posting here anymore. It is not because of his behavior or language, but I have been told he passed away yesterday. GZ was someone I got to know online and offline, and he was a nice guy and is not as caustic as he appears online. He went out of his way to help the community, even been known to apprehend a robber or two making where ever he lived safer.

Even though he was not as caustic in person, he still believed in everything he posted online. Knowing the full picture of who he was, I always smiled the way he said things. It would be almost in the same way as a comedian would make a point in a sarcastic way; he would make points in his way. He loved the area and loved the schools and wanted to make them better. He did go above and beyond armchair quarterbacking and did things to make the community better in person.

He will be missed on this site and in real life. Thank you for everything you shared with us. :(

If you have a story about GZ either online or offline, feel free to share it.

Vicki Donovan-Lyle, Republican State Rep Candidate, Delinquent On Property Taxes

Vicki Donovan-Lyle, a Sylvania School Board Member, has apparently failed to pay her property taxes on her personal home at 4428 Tamworth Road in Sylvania, Ohio. In December 2015, Vicki Donovan-Lyle announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination to Ohio’s House District #47 to replace term-limited Representative Barbara Sears.

American Petroleum Institute spends millions in Toledo market

Tagged:  

Have you heard or seen that American Petroleum Institute commercial telling you their has to be a balance? API is spending millions in Northwest Ohio media to convince you that fracking is safe. They give an image of an industry that works for the American good. This is false and anyone who has seen what the power of Oil & Gas has done to Eastern Ohio would be shocked. The industry is under attack from landowners across the state and county. The greed supersedes the will of property owners rights. The last three months local media has enjoyed a bonanza in ad revenue from big Oil & Gas.

Anyone here attend the big party last night in honor of the Hick?

Anyone here attend the the big party that some of the loyal Kool-aid drinkers gave for their
messiah Patrick "too familiar" Hickey" last night at Pat and Dandy's? It was a gala event.
Bumhower was there as well as assistant super Cherie Mourlam.The was a lot of hugging going on in between the tears of joy by his followers. They must of been congratulating him for beating the rap and making fools out of the BOE and the taxpayers. Mourlam, a Hick

Patrick Hickey resigns

The Washington Local School board voted 5-0 to accept Patrick Hickey's resignation this evening closing his almost 8 year stint as superintendent of Washington Local Schools.

It is not illegal or against sunshine and ethics laws to leak executive session information

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).

Is the library needed anymore? Amazon Prime is cheaper for me than county library

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.

Marcy Kaptur misses more votes than most other Ohio lawmakers

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.
