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.

Republican convention this past Thursday!

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.

Kaptur supports GOP safe screening bill for Syrian refugees

According to Cleveland.com Marcy is one of the supporters of the safe screening proposal by House Republicans.

=======

Northeast Ohio Democrats Tim Ryan and Marcy Kaptur were among 47 Democrats who joined with the majority of House Republicans on Thursday to pass a controversial bill that would increase government background checks done before Syrian or Iraqi refugees are admitted to the United States.

Marcy's statement:

When talking about a public figure goes from free speech to libel

There is a site out there about Patrick Hickey and Jeremy Baumhower which probably steps across the lines of what is acceptable and what is not. Public figures have a high threshold to prove slander and libel and they have to prove there is malice in the presentation of speech. In this context, the phrase refers to knowledge or reckless lack of investigation, rather than its ordinary meaning of malicious intent.

Hickey placed on leave again

According to the Blade:

Washington Local Schools Superintendent HIckey placed on paid leave again

The Washington Local Schools board of education has launched a new investigation of its embattled superintendent and placed him on paid leave while the board looks into new, unspecified allegations against him.

Patrick Hickey left the district’s administrative center on Lincolnshire Boulevard after a closed-door executive session tonight. He did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Charges filed against Jeremy Baumhower - what we know and what we don't know

One of the area's biggest bloggers, Jeremy Baumhower, was charged with domestic violence just over a week ago. There has not been much written about it, so here is a chance to clear the air and I will keep this thread up-to-date with the latest.

Washington Local reprimands Greenwood principal Bill Colon for illegal campaigning during open house

Terri Kern was able to pull this nugget of information out from Washington Local and I would have to applaud them for doing the right thing. This is much more than what Sylvania did when their employees were caught campaigning during school hours. Attached is the written reprimand of Bill Colon for making announcements during open house advocating for candidates.

Washington Local School Board race

Other than the Toledo Mayoral race, the next election that is getting the most discussion is the Washington Local School Board. Here is why this election is important:

School boards need to be the group in charge of a school district, and when you have an administration that seems to run roughshod around rules without care for consequences, it is time for the school board to re-assert itself. The superintendent is an employee of the board, not the other way around this is a fact that some out there seem to want to ignore.
