Don’t Be Fooled with being “Fine”

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower

My least favorite day happens every other week.

Having my kids half-of-the-time is a type of pain you get used to, but doesn’t go away. My AD.D. serves me best when they are not in my home– There are some moments where you almost forget… almost.

Monday mornings are always a reminder of the type of life we have together. After spending 5 days together, it feels like it should and once did. Then in a flash– you have to pack their bags, tell them to behave and kiss them all goodbye. I don’t know why it affects me in such a way because they’ll return in 48 hours, but it does. It always does. Read more ›

Perrysburg Heights Community Center has been closed to the neighborhood for 11 days.  Director of Operations Harold “Jason” Craig is keeping a Community Center away from it’s community.

It appears the PHCA building once full of books, crayons, toys, video game systems and ping pong tables is now empty. It’s former contents are very much like Jason Craig’s comments.. MIA.  The once filled schedule of constant activities happening at the center is now but a single baton twirling group and a $20/an hour cash agreement.  Read more ›

It’s never easy being the head of a School District.

All of this positive change and energy that Dr. Romules Durant has brought to TPS and now he is facing a PR problem– a very ugly one.

I am completely disgusted with learning the news of the suspended Scott Basketball Coach who just had a marriage license issued on Monday, with an 18 year-old former student, that graduated in June. Read more ›

The Case Against Jason Craig and the Perrysburg Heights Community Association #SaveThePHCA

Written By: Jeremy Baumhower

With the barrage of information iHeartGlassCity has been unleashing while covering the Perrysburg Heights Community Association’s fundraising festival, a.k.a The OG BBQ Fest– We wanted to present our case against the PHCA, it’s Board Members including Director of Operations and Treasurer Harold Jason Craig and his wife Kristie Koester.

The OG BBQ Fest

Director of Operations/ OG Fest Organizer Jason Craig knowingly and fraudulently deceived the public while promoting a concert happening at the Community Center inside Perrysburg Heights. Mr. Craig sought out and went into business with Michigan native and concert promoter Tim Corser. Mr. Corser was recently convicted of two felonies for fraud for a failed concert in Jackson County, Michigan called Rockapoolaza. The OG BBQ Fest fundraising event was sold to the public as a concert featuring National Recording Acts– Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Naughty By Nature and Coolio.

Mr. Craig told Perrysburg Township Police Department that 10,000 plus people were expected at the Community Center. Mr. Craig also produced paperwork showing he had contracted a private firm hiring 20 security guards at a rate of $26 per hour. PTPD spent three weeks preparing for the date due to potential gang activity. Numerous local artists, who were billed as performing were believed to have gang connections and the department wanted to make sure they were adequately prepared.

According to PTPD Deputy Chief of Police Mike Gilmore– on the morning of the OG Fest, Jason Craig informed Gilmore the TEN hired security guards were not coming because they were all involved in a “car accident”. iHeartGlassCity has investigated and cannot confirm that a car accident involving ten people happened anywhere within the state of Michigan. PTPD with the help of neighboring police departments provided a safe environment inside and out of the venue. The low ballpark estimate of cost to the taxpayers of Wood County is at least $37,000. Mr. Craig promised to pay for 30 police officers at $30 per hour, at a total cost of $10,800. The PTPD has yet to receive a payment.

Mr. Craig admitted days before the concert that only Coolio was coming. Mr. Craig and Mr. Corser received a Cease-And-Desist letter from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s manager demanding they stop using the group’s name to promote the concert. Mr. Craig offered a deliberately confusing trail of paperwork blaming numerous people and accusing some of theft. He also gave two interviews stating exact opposite views on concertgoers’ ability to receive a refund.

PHCA Director of Operations Jason Craig and PHCA Board Member Kristie Koester Stole the Lottery #SaveThePHCA

In the year 2002– the current Director of Operations and TREASURER of the PHCA, Mr Harold Jason Craig, and current PHCA Board member Kristie Koester.. were sued successfully by Lotto Express and Christine Markho for a total of $75,000.   It seems that Mr Craig has indeed won the lottery.  Maybe the word “won” was used incorrectly.  Perhaps Mr. Craig “stole” the lottery is a more accurate statement.

 

Please enjoy the successful complaint filed and won against Mr. Jason Craig and Kristie Koester.
