On December 1, 1974 Toledo was clobbered by a snowstorm that dumped about a foot of snow. During that storm some electric wires fell that caused the Kent Branch library to burn down. In last week's Toledo Blade it was reported that the Kent Branch was closing for about 20 months for renovations. The article went on to state the library was built in 1952 and was showing its age and was in bad need of repairs. The Blade reports many "facts" that are simply not true. The Kent Branch was rebuilt after the fire and reopened in 1975. Come on, let's get the facts right Toledo Blade.

I hear swastica adorned signs are appearing all around the Toledo area. Tomorrow I'm going to be out most of the day, and while I am, I'm going to list the locations here. It looks like some are hard at work making them. I'm looking to see how complete the coverage is, what areas have the most painters living in. I'm thinking about moving, and want to stay away from these sorts of neighborhoods/districts. Perhaps other members, also concerned about the rapid proliferation of NAZI signs, could post their sightings as well.
First it was the population explosion among bedbugs. Now, according to todays' news reports, local construction has disrupted everyday life among Toledos' lively and vibrant rodent population. In other words, the rats are upset, and they're on the move-from local construction sites, and into our neighborhoods.

Can you believe this!!! Hahaha, where is Mike Bell's head?
Da Blade says: "In other business, council Tuesday night:
•Confirmed several of Mayor Bell's directors and commissioners. Council voted 9-3 to confirm Perlean Griffin, the city's director of affirmative action. Voting against were Mr. Waniewski, Mr. Collins, and Mr. McNamara."
The board interviewed Deborah Hunter-Harvill, the former superintendent of a school district in Flint, Michigan. She says she wants to help lead the charge for school reform in Toledo.
REALLY? Has any board member checked the status of Flint Schools lately? Would she bring more of Obama style Hope and Change reform to TPS. One only has to look at Flint to see what Harvill's school reform has brought them:
As of today, June 8, the Red Cross collection center at All Saints Church in Rossford will be closed and no longer accepting donations.
The Red Cross distribution center is now open at Mainstreet Church (705 N. Main St.) in Walbridge. Those that need food, clothing, cleaning or hygiene supplies are being encouraged to visit this location.
Can anyone tell me when the Blade shrunk to the size of a Radio Shack/Pizza Hut commercial insert? I don't subscribe to it-I saw one at the gas station. Is it some sort of gag? Is the price the same? It looks ridiculous to me.
Great romances are not only in books and movies. NBC24 found one at a local rehabilitation center, and it has all the elements of an extraordinary love story: passion, dedication and a little luck.
A devoted husband of 78-years has this to say about his lady, "There's just something about her."
TPS is supported by Federal Tax dollars, State Tax dollars and local resident property taxes, monies extorted from all the citizenry. When TPS subcontracts work it posts the project on “citybots” (not certain of the name), a TPS website, for any and all to bid on the projects. Well, not really for everyone because only those belonging to a union can bid. A school system totally supported by all taxpayers and local property owners does not permit its' non-union residents, that would be at least 80% of the population, the opportunity to bid on these projects.
Country music stars and The Home Depot want to bring a new playground to Toledo, but first they need your vote.
