A friend told me today that she heard there had been a group of teens hanging out down in Highland Park wearing T-shirts with "150 down We own this Town. I was just wondering if anyone here had actually seen anyone wearing a shirt like that and if they had did it upset them as a real threat or did they just take it as teens being teens?

Ive asked this question time and time again, and NOBODY has ever answered it in a way that made any sense.
What role do "At Large" councilmen perform??
I was told that they were to ensure that everyone was represented equally...
If you are the one saying that, then please elaborate.
Because if they're are only going to provide me with just over half the cops that they say a city of this size needs, then I want to know why we really need Copeland, McNamara, Schultz, Sarantou, Szollosi and SOBczak!!!

KFC president Roger Eaton has sent a letter to the nation's mayors, including Chicago's offering to fix our roads in exchange for free advertising. KFC's promotion involves a private road crew and an actor dressed as the Colonel, fixing potholes and then spraying "Re-Freshed by KFC" on the repair, promoting their claim of using fresh chicken in their dishes.
Has anyone noticed all the Arson fires through out the city? Every night a vacant house goes up in flames. I find this just a little curious, especially at a time when safety forces could be reduced. I would be curious to know if last year at this time how many vacant house fires there have been. Very interesting........

This article in the Toledo Blade, http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090329/NEWS16/90..., points out that recycling is now costing the citizens of Toledo rather than providing some revenue. I, for one, would be willing to take my trash to the recycling bins we have in various places throughout the city. When I walk with a friend at Navarre Park there is a recycling center there. Wildwood is near the Kroger’s on Monroe Street so I can recycle there, and there is a recycling center at the Kroger’s near the corner of Glendale and South Reynolds.
