“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.”

Sylvania Schools contradict an Ohio Attorney General opinion and the Ohio Revised Code with Web link

Update 5/9: Sylvania's own district policies prohibit linking to a levy Web site. See: http://www.neola.com/sylvania-oh/search/policies/po7540.02.htm

Under no circumstances is a web site to be used for commercial purposes advertising, political lobbying or to provide financial gains for any individual. Included in this prohibition is the fact no web pages contained on the District’s web site may: (1) include statements or other items that support or oppose a candidate for public office, the investigation, prosecution or recall of a public official, or passage of a tax levy or bond issue; (2) link to a web site of another organization if the other web site includes such a message; or (3) communicate information that supports or opposes any labor organization or any action by, on behalf of, or against any labor organization.

Update 5/2: Sylvania Schools Superintendent Dr. Brad Reiger sent the following: No, we do not encourage district email accts be used for levy recruitment. We clarified with our Admin Team & staff members that personal email accts are to used. Also, you are correct that the levy website shouldn't be linked to the district website. Thank you for pointing this out. We have removed the levy website link. We'll do better with this moving forward.

5/1/2014 - original story:
2 days ago I wrote about the Sylvania School employees organizing pro-levy campaign volunteers using school resources which clearly violates the Ohio Revised code. Today, I will move a step higher and tell how the Sylvania Schools are violating an Ohio Attorney General opinion and the Ohio Revised Code by including a link to the pro levy site campaign site on the district Web site.

Renewables and Energy Efficiency in Ohio
Solar/Renewables
The Issue

Ohio has a rich history of innovation and manufacturing – a history that is interwoven with traditional resources like coal and natural gas. Though these sources of energy have helped to build a strong economy in Ohio in the past, too much of today’s economy – and military operations – depend on a single-source commodity: oil.

To protect our economic and national security, America must diversify and look to clean, homegrown alternatives like wind and solar.

Ohio “Right to Work” backers find funding, begin hiring signature gatherers

why obama won't win ohio

As a so-called “battleground state,” Ohio is receiving a lot of attention in the presidential race. There is one important indication that regardless of what the polls show—Obama won’t win Ohio.

The real key to Obama’s inability to carry Ohio is found in the November 2011 statewide election.

Ohio State and Michigan who wins?

Hate Unions? VOTE NO ON ISSUE 2!!! The unemployed in Ohio will hate them more.

If you hate Unions and the lazy lemmings who would rather live off of your hard work than pull their own weight, then VOTE NO ON ISSUE 2!

Ohio and the communities in Ohio who can no longer afford to pay 100% of some Union hacks prescription for Viagra will have no choice but to start laying off Union labor. The lower numbers of Union members mean they will have less political clout.

That will mean open season on Unions in Ohio. And, as the Toledo Blade proved, if you lock out your union hacks for a year or two, you can start making a profit.

My Final Word on SB 5

I had a chance to discuss SB 5 with some friends of mine the other day. They are non-union teachers, public non-union occupations, and others. As a result, I've had a slight change of heart about about SB 5.

First off, Ohioans on balance are not an extreme bunch. We are neither a red or blue state. If anything, Ohio is a tic right of center...a tad more blue in our purple.

Time to Discuss the Ohio Military Reserve.

Here's a small part of what wiki says about the Unit:

"The Ohio Military Reserve (OHMR) is a military force which supports the State of Ohio along with the Ohio Army National Guard and Ohio Air National Guard in times of natural disaster and state and national emergencies."

So why WOULDN'T they issue medals? Or better, why COULDN'T they? Maybe someone who actually knows about, or belongs to that Military Unit can tell us about it.
