Rats Relocating--To Toledo Neighborhoods.

Tagged:  

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.

Next TPS Superintendent

from WTOL

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:

Donation Center for Tornado Victims Set Up

The Blade-One of Americas' Cute Little Newspapers?

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.

Arizona is a great state to visit!

I've just returned from out West, including the great state of Arizona with its Grand Canyon - one of the seven natural wonders of the world! See it for yourself and agree.

Grand Canyon

A local love story that stands the test of time, illness

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 Sub-Contractor Policy

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.

TPS Budget Cuts

Toledo school board told plan shuts Libbey even if levy wins
Vote on cuts delayed as more details sought
By CHRISTOPHER D. KIRKPATRICK
BLADE STAFF WRITER

A resolution presented to the Toledo school board last night calls for South Toledo's Libbey High School to be shuttered — whether or not voters approve a 0.75 percent tax on earned income on the May 4 ballot.

Tajci concert in west Toledo . She was famous in communist Yugoslavia

http://idobelieve.com/tatiana_story_08.shtml
Her popularity in America is also spreading beyond churches. Her in-studio concert on XM Satellite Radio's 'Hear' eclectic music station drew an enthusiastic response and has been replayed a number of times.

Whether in large arenas or in intimate settings, Tatiana brings to her performances the knowledge that we are not alone. She has found her answers— in her faith, in her family and in her music.

What is Phil Copeland up to Now?

I don't read the Blah. I keep hearing that Phil Copeland(d.-Toledo)has tried getting paid for meetings he hasn't attended, or something along those lines. Maybe someone can tell me the gist of some comments he recently made about the subject, as I cannot begin to understand what he said on several clips being played on the radio and TV. I know he rarely makes comments on the air, and after hearing him speak, incoherently, about this issue-I can certainly understand why.
