Some positive news: Cancer Victim Leaves Longshot Surprise to Thankful Widow

SWANTON, Ohio - The lottery ticket was stashed among the documents, bills, receipts, medical records and other papers atop the bedroom dresser that served as her husband's desk during the last months of his life.

When lung cancer claimed Mike Bernath in October, 2006, Mary Ann Bernath gave the ticket little heed. She had a husband to bury. Children and grandchildren to console. And, she needed time to grieve.

Our Next Group Of Elected Officials Must Have Family Values

With the layoff of dozens of police officers the families in Toledo will have to step up their roles to guide our children and reinforce positive family values. We cannot afford to have our next group of elected government officials make a mockey of Toledo's social and financial relevance. At present, Toledo's government is an object of humorous andtidotes at bars and cocktails parties across the nation. The rest of the nation doesn't take Toledo seriously, and therefore, they are not serious about living here or investing here.

150 down... we own this town?

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?

We've cut Police, Fire, Garbage and admin roles - why not this?

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!!!
