Vicki Donovan-Lyle, Republican State Rep Candidate, Delinquent On Property Taxes

Vicki Donovan-Lyle, a Sylvania School Board Member, has apparently failed to pay her property taxes on her personal home at 4428 Tamworth Road in Sylvania, Ohio.

American Petroleum Institute spends millions in Toledo market

Have you heard or seen that American Petroleum Institute commercial telling you their has to be a balance? API is spending millions in Northwest Ohio media to convince you that fracking is safe. They give an image of an industry that works for the American good. This is false and anyone who has seen what the power of Oil & Gas has done to Eastern Ohio would be shocked. The industry is under attack from landowners across the state and county. The greed supersedes the will of property owners rights. The last three months local media has enjoyed a bonanza in ad revenue from big Oil & Gas.

Bimbo Gate - The ballad of Donald and Sarah

It appears that Sarah Palin has endorsed Donald Trump. I am so pleased that she did. She helped destroy one Presidential Campaign, now she gets a chance to do it again. Could you imagine Sarah Palin in Donald Trump's Cabinet?

Another entitlement question

Aren't the two ladies who both allege "The Slickmeister", aka Bill Clinton, both raped and assaulted them, entitled to press charges? Yet, women who allege Cosby raped them, as far back as 25 years ago, are? Talk about a double standard!!! I'm sure, as are all sane and intelligent people, Hillary would pardon him on her first day in office if(GOD FORBID)she were elected.

Equality In America

In 1887, ex-slaves began petitioning the federal government for pensions and compensation for the years they had labored without wages before abolition. When Congress ignored their thousands of petitions, they tried to sue for wage theft but were told they could not. At the very least, all African Americans should be eligible for reparations. Monies could come from corporations, from banks and insurance companies.

How's THIS For Entitlement?

Anyone care to guess how many MORE sex charges will be filed against that old, disgusting pervert who felt he was entitled to screw any girl he wanted, after doping them up? He was several times defined as the number one male role-model in the Country. It's the Big House for him! What is it with these liberal deviants, anyway. I hope the Donald will keep digging up the truth about ANOTHER male role model, currently trying to sneak back into the White House under Wifeys' dress. A blue dress, probably.

A Christmas Present for the World? Maybe.

The British controlled the entire Indian subcontinent for nearly 200 years. In 1948, The United Kingdom wanted to finally rid itself of the difficulties associated with governing an area both many times larger than the British Isles themselves, and overwhelmingly hostile to British control. They hoped that by partitioning the subcontinent, and creating separate areas governed separately mostly by those who followed the Hindu faith, and by those who followed Islam, there would be little sectarian violence. They were wrong!

The Guardian covers new research which finds that pot damages your brain. Don't tell this to those who want to legalize it, because that would ruin their argument on making it legal.

Iran never signed the JCPOA and Iran's parlament will not vote on it

It appears the Iran agreement will just be an agreement between ourselves. Iran did not sign it and their parliament will not vote on it. What a sweet deal for them. We look like idiots.
===========

President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review.

Jordan Davis Murder Documentary

Last night I watched the murder of Jordan Davis Documentary. I was pleased with the jurys guilty verdict of Mr. Dunn, but I was amazed that the first trial ended in a mistrial. JORDAN Davis was shot and killed by Mr. Dunn for playing loud music and using profanity at a gas station. I quess you don't have to be eatiing Skittles and drinking a soft drink to murdered in Florida. It appears Mr. Dunn's action of entitlement got him life in prison plus 90 years.

Marcy Kaptur misses more votes than most other Ohio lawmakers

According to a Sandusky Register review of ProPublica data, Marcy has one of the worst voting attendance record out of any the other lawmakers in the state of Ohio. Only one is worse than her.

Hey Sandusky Register, who cares? Marcy could stop going to DC at all and she will still be re-elected. But Marcy does care about Timberstone Junior High students. She missed a vote last year to try to find them.

U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, has missed more votes during the current session of Congress than almost every other member of Ohio's House delegation.

Hickey placed on leave again

According to the Blade:

Washington Local Schools Superintendent HIckey placed on paid leave again

The Washington Local Schools board of education has launched a new investigation of its embattled superintendent and placed him on paid leave while the board looks into new, unspecified allegations against him.

Patrick Hickey left the district’s administrative center on Lincolnshire Boulevard after a closed-door executive session tonight. He did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Is modern liberalism a mental disorder?

The ConcernedStudent1950 right on the cusp of success went full retard yesterday.

Why would you be scared of journalists documenting a news story? The students (and at least one professor) are harassing a young journalist who dared to take photos in public which is entirely legal and protected by the 1st Amendment. Why are modern liberals so scared of a free press?

I know GZ has some good ideas.

Washington Local reprimands Greenwood principal Bill Colon for illegal campaigning during open house

Terri Kern was able to pull this nugget of information out from Washington Local and I would have to applaud them for doing the right thing. This is much more than what Sylvania did when their employees were caught campaigning during school hours. Attached is the written reprimand of Bill Colon for making announcements during open house advocating for candidates.

The question is not if Washington Local violated state law during its Issue 2 levy campaign in 2014, but to what extent

Updated with Patrick Hickey's statement

My curiosity was stirred in watching everything going on at Washington Local and stirred even more once Superintendent Patrick Hickey blocked me on Twitter for stating the obvious. Seeing a disturbing behavior here I decided to look at some things that were done in the past to really get a grasp on how things are run in Washington Local….and I did not have to go far to find out how bad things were run during the 2014 Issue 2 levy campaign.

We can all agree that when you operate in a certain environment, there are some things that are well known to anyone including rules and regulations. If you pay a lawyer, you expect them to know the laws and proper procedures. But it seems like "Levy 101" items at Washington Local are missed by the leaders who are paid to know what is OK and not OK. There are no excuses on why these laws are being violated, and there are questions that the citizens of the district need to ask the board members and their administration (I don’t live in the district).
