Election November 2016, Local Issues

I ranted about the issues (proposed tax levies) here, Election 2016, Local Issues, which you may read or not as it amuses you. Some of the demands for more of my money that concern me the most are:

17. Sylvania Local School District 5.7 mills, additional, operating expenses & permanent improvements, for continuing period of time.
Not just no, but Hell No!

Toledo’s Jasinksi Sausage Company offers FREE “Gourmet Kielbasa & Killer Griller Cookbook!

Since 1932, the recipe for Jasinski’s Polish Sausage, Bratwurst & Kielbasa have always been a family secret. Now, you can feature that same award winning meat in over 20 recipes compiled into a new collection of tasty treats.

Made with real meat, pure pork…no fillers, no additives, no msg…no kidding. Some companies cheat and try to cut costs by using ‘liquid smoke’ Jasinski Smoked Sausage utilizes “real smoke” and our fans tell us all the time that they can really taste the Jasinski difference.

Stikii: A Perfect Fit – Every Time!

Hello friends and fans! Are you interested in learning a bit about Stikii’s latest and greatest innovation? We’re pretty sure you are. One of the many new things that we have developed to make our customers shoe-wearing experience more enjoyable is the creation of the “Stikii Size Chart”. The piece is fun, vibrantly colored and serves a very practical and useful purpose!

If the Stikii shoes fit, your child might just become famous!

Is your kid special, does he or she like performing, modeling, singing or acting? Does your child like to be on camera or take pictures? Is your little one-not-so-little? Are they outgoing, easy to get along with, a natural leader? If they are NONE of those things, are they just plain CUTE AND ADORABLE? Would they like free Stikii shoes?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to get your children involved with the Stikii Kids Club contest.

Right Wing Propogandist Hosts YMCA Friday Morning On WSPD 7am

Friday morning I host the two heads of the YMCA/JCC for an hour long interview about the South YMCA. Robert Alexander, Pres. CEO, and Paul Schlatter head of the Board of Directors will be on to give us the final update on "the deal" and the future of the South Y location. Did the constant barrage of negative coverage hurt fundraising? What happens after three years? Is what Alexander makes important to the story?
Should be fun.

Toledo zoo changes and problems. Staff questions new director...

I was talking to a staff member . I live about a mile from the zoo. New ( and highly paid) director Ann Baker has made many changes to the zoo. Animal exhibits are being downsized. Animals that die are not being replaced- gorilla , many more. Animals are given to other zoos with no animal in exchange - one giraffe, many more.
Members are asking about some of the missing favorites -example, the komodo dragon - It's gone!

Zoo's are EXPRESSLY NOT allowed to receive stimulus money - yet they apply

What's the deal with the Toledo Zoo applying for federal stimulus money since all Zoo's are expressly denied to receive funds for the stimulus package? If you read section 1109 of the package it clearly states that Zoo's are not allowed to receive money! What is Anne Baker thinking? I called WNWO after their story about this and all I got was a "we are just reporting about the Zoo applying for funds" It just makes no sense!!

Toledo Zoo's responsibility?

Is this a good expenditure for the Toledo Zoo?

•The Toledo Zoo has spent thousands of dollars and sent scientists abroad to help bring the Virgin Islands boa back to Puerto Rico in 1993 and the Virgin Islands in 1996.

Toledo Zoo helping preserve Kihansi spray toads

Something our zoo is doing to help out the toads on the verge of extinction. Too bad it could not be more glamourous, like the white tiger or the Java rihno or something :)

LEDs get public's green light for holidays

When it comes to outdoor lighting, there is a downside to LEDs' cool temperature. That was made clear last weekend at the Toledo Zoo in Ohio, where the annual "Lights Before Christmas" holiday show was one of the first big public displays in the country to start making the move to energy-efficient lights, back in 2002.
