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.

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.
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.
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.

Woo Woo Woo. I can't wait to pay more taxes to support a service that will not directly support Toledo. Looks like a future drain of our money...but hey we call can spread our wealth around right?
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is getting about $400 million in federal stimulus money to restore passenger train service among its major cities.
Gov. Ted Strickland said Wednesday that U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called him about the grant. Ohio is planning a 79-mph, startup train service connecting Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati.
Paralize the judicial system with a blizard of motions is always one way to buy time. Good for you, but bad for the legitimate cases. The Blade has the latest.
New motions added to the legal wrangling over control of the Lucas County Republican Party forced another delay yesterday in determining who is the rightful party chairman.
Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Charles Doneghy delayed until tomorrow a hearing on incumbent party Chairman Jon Stainbrook's petition for an injunction against an effort to have him ousted.
What do you think? Is this self-justification or maybe statistics and lies or is it reality?
For one in five Columbus-area households, the economic decline is making for bare cupboards.
A report released today by the Food Research and Action Center found that 20 percent of households in the metro area faced "food hardship" in 2008 and 2009.
That means families answered "yes" when Gallup surveyers asked whether there were times in the past year when they did not have enough money to buy needed food.

Lucas County’s 2009 foreclosure numbers show more properties continue to fall prey to the poor economy, but fewer homeowners are losing the biggest investment of their lives to a sheriff’s sale. It’s a mixed picture that suggests local foreclosure prevention efforts are succeeding, banks are giving up on situations that can’t be resolved—or both.
