When Did Collins Know About Potential Water Problems?

The 13abc I-Team has uncovered a letter from the Ohio EPA showing concerns about the city's water system dated in June.

The letter warns the city about the lack of progress being made to improvements at Toledo's Public Water System, in particular the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant.

It goes on to say the plant is vulnerable to potential failures that could severely impact the city's ability to provide enough safe water to its citizens.

Right To Work-Fast Track To Disaster

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LANSING, Mich. -- A new federal report says Michigan's economy has continued its steady recovery from the Great Recession, growing 2 percent in 2013 and staging a faster comeback than the nation as a whole over a four-year span.

SEIU EIEIO

In Michigan, where the SEIU had dues deducted directly from Medicare checks sent to people cared for in their homes by loved ones, the practice ended when lawmakers passed legislation in 2012 making it a right-to-work state. Membership among those previously classified as home health workers plunged by 80 percent by some estimates, but the SEIU kept people previously classified as union members on its rolls unless they affirmatively opted out during a one-month annual period.

RepubliDems

After initial success in cutting federal spending and reducing deficits, House Republicans have drifted into the red with a series of tax measures and spending bills that are not offset — either adding to the pile of debt or hiding the costs with accounting gimmicks.

More than a dozen bills with costs that are not fully offset elsewhere in the budget have passed the Republican-controlled House and threaten to add nearly $1 trillion to federal debt over the next decade.

Ebola: The US diagnostic test is a lie

Ebola: The US diagnostic test is utterly unreliable. When researchers and doctors are talking about a germ-caused disease, everything depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis. That's where it all starts.

So here is a blockbuster.
The US diagnostic test for Ebola is utterly unreliable.
Using the test to claim a patient has Ebola or doesn't have Ebola is scientific fraud.
Therefore, any pronouncements made by the Centers for Disease Control, where all the US testing is done, are worthless.

This guy cracks me up

He wants to be Governor but for years was unwilling to follow the very laws of the state. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/08/04/Fitz_driver_lic... Liberal politicians, you gotta love 'em. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2014/08/what_we_know_--_and_what...

IMO, Water Scare Will Turn Out To Be A HOAX!

I hope all the test results will be CAREFULLY checked, and published so we can see for ourselves what is going--and NOT let some political hacks explain it for us! Specially the part where huge tax increases will be needed to keep Toledo healthy!

Kasich's illegal appointment to Director of Health

Defend this, conservatives!

On Friday afternoon Kasich released a statement saying he was going to appoint Rick Hodges as Director of the Ohio Department of Health. Hodges, a former lawmaker, currently leads the Ohio Turnpike Commission. Hodges will be replacing Dr. Ted Wymyslo… and that “Dr.” part is kind of important.

According to Ohio Revised Code 121.10:

The director of health shall be either:

(A) A physician holding the degree of doctor of medicine from a medical college approved by the state medical board who, before assuming his duties, has been licensed to practice medicine in the state and who has had experience in pursuing some phase of medical practice;

(B) An individual who has had significant experience in the public health profession.

The anti environment Gov Kasich meets with Toledo Mayor Collins over Toledo water crisis

Ohio Governor Kaisich votes down SB310
Ohio Gov. John Kasich Signs Nation’s First Renewable Energy Freeze June 13, 2014
http://ecowatch.com/2014/06/13/ohio-gov-john-kasich-renewable-energy-fre...
Quote:
“Gov. Kasich promised Ohioans he would protect Ohio families, create Ohio jobs, and champion clean energy technologies. By signing this devastating bill, he has decided to ignore the health and economic interests of everyday Ohioans in favor of big corporations. We need Gov. Kasich to be strong on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and green jobs to move Ohio forward.”

Here's Your Immigration Bill---Now Shut Up.

Here it is, a comprehensive immigration bill! Next-to the Senate, then to The One.

Oops!!!

I believe the water "emergency" that Toledo has been going through today is a hoax being perpetrated by Mayor Collins and his henchmen to scare the people of Toledo into going along with massive water rate hikes to finance the upgrade of the city water treatment plant. The results of the tests of Toledo's water by outside agencies will not be announced until tomorrow. That will give Mayor Collins time to put the final touches on his PR spin of the story. I expect the phrase that will be heard most in Toledo tomorrow will be: "It was better to err on the side of caution".

GET A LOAD OF Toledoans

The best part of any sort of "emergency" in Toledo is being given the opportunity to get a glimpse at the fine residents via various media sources. I admit that I have hit the rewind button several times on the television to get a second look at the people lining up at the local grocery stores. From these videos, I have deducted that Toledoans:

***Have an average of 5 teeth each

***Believe that pajama bottoms are acceptable out-of-the-house wear

***Are so accustomed to standing in line for government handouts, they can be up and ready with their EBT cards at a moment's notice (buying water with your "food stamp card" and selling it will replenish your casino, drug, or designer purse fund in no time)

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER

Blade press operations

Spolar may say a printing contract is not in place, but I'm told by one of its veteran employees that the Blade will be printed in Ann Arbor. With drive time accounted for, subscribers can expect to get their paper at least one hour later, possibly delivered after they've left for work. Either that, or deadlines for reporters will be moved up, resulting in an absence of news that otherwise would be there for readers. The Blade is making the hard-copy version of itself irrelevant. And then there's the matter of throwing 131 family breadwinners into the street.

Uh oh

I wonder if he was with an OSU band member- Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ed FitzGerald has canceled two campaign events for today and called a press conference for 2:30 this afternoon, likely to discuss a suburban Cleveland police record from two years ago that said police happened upon him and another person in a car in an otherwise a vacant parking lot at about 4:30 a.m. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/08/01/fitzgerald-canc...

.....so then paying for these would be a war on women right?

Research by scientists at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center found that some versions of the birth control pill could increase a woman’s risk for breast cancer by 50 percent.

The versions of oral contraceptives specifically cited in the study published in the journal Cancer Research were those with “high doses of estrogen, some types of progestin and certain dosing schedules,” according to the research center.

Federal union employees don't have enough to do

For one Federal Communications Commission worker, his porn habit at work was easy to explain: Things were slow, he told investigators, so he perused it “out of boredom” — for up to eight hours each week.
Lack of work has emerged time and again in federal investigations, and it’s not just porn, nor is it confined to the FCC. Across government, employees caught wasting time at work say they simply didn’t have enough work to do, according to investigation records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Wisconsin supreme court nails it

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has upheld the 2011 law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers, sparked massive protests and led to Republican Gov. Scott Walker's recall election and rise to national prominence.

And it was a 5-2 vote.

What's wrong with this story?

Do you remember, as a kid, sitting in the doctor's waiting room reading Children's Highlights magazine? One of my favorite parts was the "What 's Wrong with This Picture?" game. If you were lucky, no other kid had already played the game--so you could be the first (if your parents would allow) to circle the mistakes (things like a fish on a leash or a flower pot on someone's head).

Well, here's a new game--What's Wrong with This Article?" I don't mean grammar or punctuation--but content. (Answers on the next page.)

The man accused of trying to kidnap a four-month-old baby from a hotel room is behind bars. The Toledo Police Department says Jaequan Smith was arrested Wednesday. According to investigators, the infant was left unattended at the Days Inn on Miami Street on Monday while the mother walked her boyfriend to his car. When she returned, Smith was allegedly leaving the hotel room with the baby in his arms, but was stopped.
