Be Thankful

Well tomorrow is Thanksgiving day. A very American holiday. A time to pause and give thanks for all we have been blessed with as Americans. For a strong and free government blessed with divine providence from God. So take a moment and be thankful.It could be worse. We could actually have a horrible economy and owe the nation to a Communist country. (Oh wait we do!) Well at least we have a President who puts his country before his own ego. One that will support his troops and let them know that , he has their back. (OH what?

A thank you from the Red Cross

A hot meal delivered to victims after a disaster. Blood when it is needed most. Shelter when there is nowhere else to turn. These are just some of the ways the selfless gifts from our community are put to work through the American Red Cross. The lifesaving mission of the Red Cross is possible because of individuals like you and we are privileged to provide gifts that save the day for families in our community.

Automated Trash Public Information Meeting

Tom Waniewski: I invite you to attend the first public information meeting on the new automated trash pick up. I am happy to have snagged the first public meeting in our district to inform residents who may still have questions about the new program. I've been trying to hit as many block watches as possible to answer questions, but I know there are likely more questions still out there. Residents don't have to live in District 5 to attend, so invite your neighbors. The informational meeting will be Thursday, November 19th at 6 p.m. at Aldersgate Church on Douglas and Sylvania.


Larry Elder Approves this Message: Featuring James "The ACORN Shaker" O'Keefe and Buddy Sosthand. Zo's in there somewhere too!

Thoughts On Local Education

It appears that there are too many special interest groups involved in the educational process. Rather than an honest examination of what the playing field is and what has a chance of working, too much time and resources are wasted in trying to do "things right" as defined by a bureaucratic system. Too many resources are also wasted through trying to "win public debates" that are already lost. A system that constantly needs to respond to whatever made the news in The Blade yesterday cannot spend it's resources on the core mission.

Thought of the day 9/30/09

Jason Hickey gives us all something to think about with the following Tweet:

Newark, N.J. Toledo will trade you Carty Finkbeiner & The Mudhens for Cory Booker. No deal? Fine, take the TV rights to Coffee w The Fords.

Thank you Jason for wondering what we can do to rid ourselves of these scourges :) Maybe we can ask more cities? Offer a two for one?

This year's Diocese of Toledo Red Mass will be celebrated by His Excellency, Bishop Leonard P. Blair STD at Rosary Cathedral on Sunday September 27, 2009 at 11:00 am. This will be the third annual Red Mass, and it will be a bit different from the last two. First, it will fulfill the Sunday obligation of Roman Catholics (the last two Masses were on Thursday nights). Second, the dinner program with featured speaker will be replaced by a coffee-and-doughnuts social after Mass in the auditorium. Third, the annual Jack Schlageter Award (JSA) will be presented at the end of Mass by Bishop Blair.
