My wife was born and raised in Toledo. I was not born in Toledo, however, I attended the University of Toledo. After we were married, I tried to convince my wife we needed to move. However, like most life-long residents of Toledo, she was not willing to go. We purchased a house in a nice neighborhood, however, after a few years the neighborhood began to go downhill. When the voters of Toledo voted to put Carty back into office, we decided to move to Sylvania Township. Not ideal for me as I still wanted to leave the Toledo area completely, however, a huge step for my wife.
WSPD and other sponsors have rescheduled their original meeting which was supposed to happen last week. They will be presenting both sides of the debate. Health care professionals, business owners and insurance reps will be on hand to discuss both sides of the debate. Elected officials from Ohio and southeast Michigan have been invited, but we do not know who has confirmed. Marcy Kaptur will not be in attendance, according to Brian Wilson this afternoon.

Do you remember what you were doing that day? When our country changed forever? When our world would never be the same?
This undeniable American tragedy on our soil should be remembered year in and year out, to remember how people died that day because, in fact, they represented everything that America stands for.

For your information. Responses from John Foley to the original questions regarding the Scott auction are included in the text below. The auctions of TPS property have raised many questions within the Toledo community. Did they follow state law? Did we receive fair value for the property sold at these auctions? Why were property appraisals not completed for Scott and other auctions?

Just a quick plug for a worthy cause, Planned Pethood. The group - which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded over 30 years ago - has a goal of reducing the overpopulation and suffering of dogs and cats through educational programs as well as low-cost spay/neuter programs. Planned Pethood also rescues, vets, and places adoptable dogs and cats into good permanent homes.

Voice of America is profiling Salmenna Sedique and her new role as president of the Masjid Saad Islamic Center.
Some in the West have long held negative stereotypes toward the Islamic faith, particularly when it comes to the role of women. But if one woman in Toledo, Ohio has her way, that is about to change. She was recently elected president of a local Islamic center. She oversees the operations of a community center, school, and mosque, including the activities of the Imam. Her goal is to show the non-Muslim world that women of Islam can do and achieve anything they want.
