Baumhower's DV Sentencing - This Friday August 26 at 8:30

Jeremy Baumhower was found guilty of Domestic Violence last month in a decision handed down by Judge M. Scott Ramey in Sylvania, OH. On November 3, 2015 - the day after the contentious WLS election - Baumhower was confronted by his wife after she found evidence that WLS teacher and Hickey trouble maker Jamie Squibb had been in her home (for the SECOND time) while she was at work.

Because our Children are better than we are....TOLEDO TAKES THREE!!

PLEASE HELP!!!

I am asking that we help our teachers in the district with supplies, volunteering, books...etc....

Five minutes of our time or five dollars from our pockets can truly mean a lot a classroom.

There are a few teachers in the area that have reached out to me that are struggling to get supplies that they need. If you have are able to please reach out to me by leaving a comment here or at rebeccaralley@mail.com.

Something as simple as a pencil could help make a child our next big journalist in Toledo!

Toledo Take Three

WOW...such a short word and seems simple, yet not quite big enough to cover my thoughts right now.

First, l think as a community we should welcome back the students that have started or are starting school. They most likely are entering new classrooms and who can't remember that nervousness in the pit of your stomach when you started school. Who is my teacher? What am I going to wear? Will he/she like me? Maybe the kids won't sit by me at lunch.

Washington Local Family and Friends

Besides the heat wave; is anyone else ready for school to start? Love my children but I do believe I am ready and very excited for this new school year to start!

I am excited for our community. Through turmoil and chaos we have grown. From my personal experiences in the district, I am so proud that the majority has been able to overlook the ones that have been negative and the ones that do not even participate or live in our district.

Let our children hit the ground running and achieve even higher limits this year!!!!

Side note: how many people have made it to a

Patrick Hickey, Washington Local Schools

Whatever happened to Patrick Hickey, the former superintendent of Washington Local School District? Back in December 2015, Patrick Hickey allegedly stated that he planned to file complaints with the Ohio Ethics Commission against Washington Local Board of Education members Patricia Carmean and James Langenderfer, but to the best of my knowledge, there have been no reports about any such ethics complaints ever actually having been filed. And, what of the proclamation by Patrick Hickey that he was planning to seek election in 2017 to become a Member of the Washington Local Board of Education?

Amanda Clark had survived. It was a miracle! She had been using her cell phone while driving a large vehicle. Amanda ran a stop sign. She was broadsided by another vehicle. Her vehicle rolled over about 3 times and ended up on its top. Amanda survived with only minor injuries. She was a graduating senior in high school. She claimed that she knew how lucky she had been to survive. She swore that no message would ever be that important to her again.

Who will you vote for today?

Time for your endorsements - the major players had their say. You have your say.

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 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.

Your thoughts on the fall 2015 election - endorsements, anti-endorsements

Others have had their say on what you should support, but now it is time for you to sound off. There are lots of important races on the ballot this fall including mayorships, city council, school boars and issues. Who deserves our vote and who should we stay away from?

HOW ABOUT ANOTHER "FEEL GOOD" STORY?

I am providing a link to a story about a member of the U.S. Air Force who saved a family after Katrina hit 10 years ago, but could NOT get the image of a 3 year old girl's smile out of his mind. He just had to find her and see how she and her family were doing now.
What a great testament to the human spirit!

Here's the link...enjoy: https://www.yahoo.com/parenting/air-force-vets-touching-reunion-with-kat...

Are you experiencing the Northern Cities Vowel shift?

Are you experiencing the Northern Cities Vowel Shift?

Apparently this is happening around the Great Lakes cities. The way we speak is changing because people from the Great Lakes area are changing the way they pronounce several vowels.

A Man of Wisdom Posts

I found this link to a video that all should see and hear.

How about something positive, for a change? This features a good man.

I am providing a link to a love story that goes beyond the grave. A dying man made provision for his wife to receive flowers from him every Valentine's Day FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE, even though he was soon to die. She received her first bouquet under his order to a florist, on this Valentine's Day.
Yes, Virginia. There are some truly good men around!
