An Open Letter to the Elected Officials of Wood County and Perrysburg Township. #StopTheOGFest

To the Elected Officials of Wood County and Perrysburg Township,

As you are aware there is a concert scheduled for this Saturday at the Perrysburg Community Heights Building called the OG BBQ Fest. I am writing you in hopes that you consider revoking the permits of this specific event due to the egregious and fraudulent nature for which it has been promoted and currently being planned.

It’s my understanding that when Organizer Jason Craig presented this event to you during a trustee meeting for a liquor permit, he explained it was just an additional day of PHCA’s Annual Latino Festival, which would raise some additional revenue for the association and it’s community center building. There was no mention that he and a local promoter were planning and currently booking an all-day concert that would feature over 60 acts. Read more ›

After a day full of back and forth drama about this weekend’s OG BBQ Festival concert starring headlining musical acts Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Naughty By Nature, Coolio, J-Kwon, Bushwick Bill, Raine Wilder and many, many, many ,many more… there was a moment of clarity.   The Festival’s Organizer Jason Craig gave a teary-eyed interview to WTOL where he promised to refund the monies of any concertgoer who was upset over the rap acts that were never making an appearance,, even if it meant coming out of his own pocket.

Baumhower: Selfish vs Exhausted


Written By: Jeremy Baumhower

I will admit that hearing, seeing, and reading the word “suicide” as many times as I have this week, has put me in a funk.

It’s depressing to hear about depression and suicide with the frequency of conversations this week. The worst part is the amount of news stories doesn’t seem to be fading away, even  three days after the fact.   The last time the nation mourned as a whole, may have been with the death of Princess Di.  That time we could blame the paparazzi.  This time we can only blame depression.

The Unforgettable Twelve

Written by: Kayla Sykes

Today was a hard day for me. I had a series of bad luck, and I was drenched from the downfall while carrying boxes piled high on my pinterest inspired storage bins. I was admiring the eerie silence of an elementary school emptied by the summer; and beginning to think of ideas for the upcoming fall. Deep in thought over where I will put my things, I heard the familiar sound of brand new tennis shoes running down a hallway, with the words “Ms. Sykes” echoing in every step. I was charged with the biggest hug I’ve ever had from a 9 year old girl.

Mid squeeze she finally let go of her thoughts. “I’m running the color run next weekend with my sister! Just like you and Ellie did! And my mom already told me I could join again this fall!”

Some of those boxes I was hauling into school on this rainy day were things I have made over the summer for her, and for the rest of my team. My Girls on the Run team.

A crucial part of life is change. Sometimes it is hard and uncomfortable, and sometimes you have to work really hard to get halfway to where you really want to be. There are also unforeseen moments in life. The really good unforeseen life changing moments are called blessings. Mine happened in the summer of 2013.

Jeremy Baumhower shared this video:

I was in tears. What is Girls on the Run? I hate running, but I want that. I want that video to be my daughter’s life. A few weeks later I was speaking with a friend of mine, a friend who is on the board of the Girls on the Run of Northwest Ohio committee and the email simply said

“Want to coach at Frank in the spring?????” Read more ›
