Toledo Take Three......

TOLEDO TAKE THREE ...

I am not sure about you, but I am TIRED. Tired of reading self serving bloggers thoughts on this town that they really do not genuinely care about. It is with my heart, a heart that started beating right here in Toledo, that I am writing today.

Over the last week I have had a great opportunity to interact with people in this community and the common thread or census if you will; is that they are tired of reading from certain blogger (s) that write with the intent to self serve.

As I begin, yes another BLOG, I ask what do you want to hear about?

Baumhower Found Guilty of Domestic Violence

WLS defamer Jeremy Baumhower was handed a guilty verdict in his November 3, 2015, domestic violence charge against his soon to be ex-wife, Shannon Tarsha. Baumhower has denied he injured Tarsha during this encounter and that he was "defending himself" after she flipped out on him. He went on to accuse her of suffering from bipolar disorder and claims she had recently changed medications, which is what (he claims) caused her to flip out. The judge requested evidence of this, which Baumhower failed to produce.

Advocates for poor people and progressive causes say they still plan to make a stink – literally – during Hillary Clinton’s big night accepting the Democratic presidential nomination this month.

BRIAN WILLIAMS--WHAT A GUY!!!!

Tagged:  

So I was flipping around channels and lo and behold who do I see on MSNBC? Brian Williams! At first I thought he might have been brought back to report on Hillary lying (after all, he can relate), but I checked and saw that he is a permanent fixture on that stellar network. I'm telling you--it's a match made in heaven!

Anyway, Williams was reporting on the Dallas shootings; and he had quite the tale to tell:

SNAKES ON A PLANE

If you haven’t heard about Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton in a private plane in Arizona—this post is probably not for you. That’s because it assumes that you are at least somewhat aware of this occurrence and have an idea as to why it’s a hot topic.

But if you’re like me, for situations like these I long for a timeline of information. I can’t stand listening to the agenda-driven television “news” commentators drone on about what they suppose—who cares?

I finally heard an interview with the Arizona television station reporter, Christopher Sign, who was tipped-off as to the fact that Clinton was waiting on his private plane for the arrival of Lynch’s private plane. The reporter travelled to the airport and here’s what he witnessed:

"The two Toledoans will be among the first radio hosts on the city’s soon-to-launch low-power FM station, WAKT-FM 106.1. The community-driven station begins broadcasting July 1, said Sean Nestor, the station’s founder and treasurer."

Cleveland, Ohio, and America lose a great man -- George Voinonvich

Tagged:  

George Voinovich won his first elective office by taking a strong stand against a Fair Housing law. Years later, as mayor of Cleveland, he signed into law a strong Fair Housing law. Some would label this as a "flip-flop." To George Voinovich, it was plain common sense. Times had changed, and he had changed with them. Unlike so many ideologues of both the right and left, especially today, George Voinovich was willing to compromise.

A question about rape

Tagged:  

With the recent Stanford rape story in the headlines, this question came to mind. Any barristers out there please feel free to answer.
A male and female are both so drunk they are not legally capable of giving consent. They engage in sex where no force or violence or coercion is used.
Question: Are they both guilty of rape?

Pope Francis is the best Pope of my lifetime.

Tagged:  

I will provide a link to an article on the latest apostolic letter issued by Pope Francis. In it, he establishes the strongest reaction yet regarding abuse by church officials. I am not Catholic, however I was taught to always hold clergy of any faith in the highest regard. Pope Francis is doing everything he can to repair the image of Catholic clergy, not only to other Catholics, but to those who follow other faiths as well.

If Putin thinks he's bitch slapping O'Bama he damned well better understand he is doing that to all the American people. We will be here long after the current Potus' is put out to pasture.

WSPD NEEDS A MAKE-OVER

I love local radio. I've always resisted subscribing to services like SiriusXM because I like live local radio--regardless of if I'm home or away.

Lately, I just can't stand listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD. It reminds me of CKLW's Saturday afternoon garage sale program where people call in and say things like, "I've got a beautiful ceramic Dalmatian that I'll sell for $37."

Things of note: Area governments have passed over 14 resolutions against the Nexus pipeline. Wood County Commisioners wrote a April 30 ,2015 letter to area politicians complaining of their lack of representation on this Nexus pipeline. http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq262/wolfmanwon/Waterville%20Compres...

Vicki Donovan-Lyle campaign finance issues

A citizen emailed me this on Sunday - apparently Vicki has yet to file normal campaign finance reports. (Disclosure - I am not a fan of Vicki and will not be voting for her today nor ever again.)
=========
As you are aware I had filed a complaint against Kevin Haddad regarding misinformation on his campaign signs.

Vicki Donovan-Lyle appears to be incompetent in various aspects of political life in addition to her inexcusable failure to pay property tax on more than one occasion. I submitted a complaint regarding irregularities in her filings with the Election Commission.

Trump and Finkbeiner are more similar than you think - don't fall for it

I am as shocked as the rest of you on how Donald Trump got to the point he is currently at because I was one of the people thinking he would implode at any time. But the personality he displays and the excusing of his bad behavior has made me uncomfortable. Trump's rise and character traits have some eerie parallels with former Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner.

I am scratching my head about how he got this way, but the similarities between Donald and Carty that are too close for my comfort and I hope that other people see it too.

Two Sylvania teens lives change - it is not better in Sylvania

The Toledo Blade is reporting the names of the two teens who are now charged with forcing a developmental child to lick a push pop dipped in a urinal then punching and pushing the kids. Bullying is a common thing in schools, and many are affected by it, but what is so interesting is how much these kids are taught it is wrong during the school year so what makes matters worse is that these kids did it anyway.

Another "Feel Good" (albeit heart-wrenching) story.

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. In December 2015, Vicki Donovan-Lyle announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination to Ohio’s House District #47 to replace term-limited Representative Barbara Sears.
