If this proposed income tax increase passes my company is moving out of Toledo

I can't say who but it is a major employer in Downtown Toledo. This is so sad. I remember back in the 50's when downtown was booming. But times change and I agree with management it is time to make the move.

Affidavit ties Sanders to TPS investigation and Foley - contrary to public statements that they did not know what was going on

Toledo Free Press has the latest breaking news.....I think there are more involved. Blade also now has a story on the auditor findings.
Latest:
Foley signed checks and Sanders provided tips. Is this an example of a district out of control? This is the behavior that is bred when there is a lack of accountability by the local media and by the board. Larry Sykes is oddly quiet about this whole thing.

Taylor KIA and The Appliance Center of Maumee team up to advertise on Local Radio

Recently listening to 105 FM Toledo radio I caught 3 hours on a Saturday of Taylor KIA and The Appliance Center of Maumee on a mutual promotion together. Immediately I thought of all the people I know who buy from the Appliance Center. Most of these people look to buy local and many are union auto workers who could easily buy from the big box Best Buy.So why is the Appliance Center of Maumee promoting foreign KIA cars that employ minimal people in Toledo? Does the owner know loyalty starts at home?
