First Solar Inc.'s second-largest shareholder sold half his shares, a signal that the world's biggest solar company may soon fizzle.
I must be in a good mood, because I had a lot of chuckles today. Don't you think it is funny when Carty says he wants to form a committee to study the Intermodal? First that says, he is not an expert on intermodals and needs to assemble some, which means why is saying some place is better than another? Who is he going to assemble who has not talked in the Free Press or on WSPD?
I thought I read this story before in the Blade :)
Stainbrook wins another Irony Award for the few things that made me chuckle:
"They were standing at my voting location, they're handing out literature saying Riley Troup is the endorsed Republican," Mr. Stainbrook recalled. "I was devastated. I was hurt."
What about the Old West End people getting phone calls saying their candidate was endorsed by the Lucas County Republican Party...(long pause)...grassroots coalition. Listen at:
The Fed is cranking up the printing presses to smooth over the rough edges in our economy. Meantime, prices go higher and higher. Gasoline is pegged to the dollar and that goes up along with everything else we buy. In 1920s Germany they took shopping bags full of money to the market to buy stuff. Is that where we're headed?
Another post says that 16% of lucas county people are on food stamps, and Ben Konof is seriously worrying about THIS??:
"Lucas County mulls policy on sweatshop apparel
Commissioners support restrictions on clothing purchased for prisoners"
Sixteen percent of Lucas County are getting food stamps. The unemployment rate in Toledo is nearly 8%.
"A person living in Toledo and supporting one child would have to make at least $12.89 per hour to meet their basic expenses, according to the Living Wage Calculator, an online tool developed by a Penn State University professor that calculates living costs for various areas.

Talks about his job as City Council President, the next Mayoral election, as well as several lawsuits that are currently pending against the city of Toledo.
The drug dealer whose girl friend was killed by the SWAT agent during the botched Lima raid was sentenced to seven years in prison. Sgt. Joseph Chavalia, the shooter, goes on trial for a misdemeanor next month. Anybody wanna bet that, if convicted, he will serve less time than the drug dealer? War on Drugs, indeed!
"Just sign a piece of paper that has falsely been alleged to be languishing on my desk for two years - that was, and is, unadulterated B-period, S-period, - and thousands of jobs will come our way." Carty said yesterday in the Blade.
So now Hizzoner wants $20 grand to enclose part of Ottawa Park as a dog park?
Couple questions -
Do we really need this?
Cant you already take your dog to any of the metroparks, or have I been breaking the law all this time?
What will $20K buy us, just the fencing?
What extra maintenance will be needed? How much will that cost?
I noticed Roberta de Boer is gone from the Blade. Anyone hear where she went?
Not a list we what to be in the top 4!
Maybe we should build another refinery in the area...maybe on the East Side!

Here's a question for you. If someone had a great idea that would bring new business and jobs to the area, but Carty just flat out didnt like the guy, would Carty stand in his way even knowing full well that his stance would be detrimental to the area??
As Mayoral bootlicker, Brian Schwarz never had too much positive to say about the intermodal, ex:
until McMahon presents an end user for the property, the mayor doesn't see an immediate need to sign off on the easement, said Brian Schwartz, Finkbeiner's spokesman.
There is a phrase that I have heard tossed around by a few candidates last year and repeated today, which I wonder why it is ever said:
"When you bargain collectively, particularly in Ohio, you give and take," Mr. Ford said.
The SwampBubbles store now has Support Toledo Intermodal items. There is no markup on the items.
Get them now at:
Wouldn't Scout would look good in one of these?
Everyone seems lining up in favor of the intermodal. The silence coming from City Council and the Mayor's office is quite deafening. When will Toledo's leaders take proactive action and begin to pave the way for this? They sure took action to say they did not want the State to take money away from the Turnpike. Why is there an odd silence coming from the City leadership on this issue?
