Mental Health Counselor threatens WLS BOE President in scathing email #Socked

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower

In case you’ve wondered what a day was like in the life of a school board president; allow me the privilege to show you.

Recently, Washington Local School Board President David Hunter had an email exchange with the woman at the center of last year’s Patrick Hickey controversy, Terri Kern.  Kern is a state-licensed mental health counselor, who recently tweeted that she was a couple of classes away from completing her online Doctorate program. She ended her tweet with the hashtag ‘#DrKern’.  The soon-to-be Doctor used her professional email address to communicate with Hunter and the rest of the BOE.

On December 13th, Kern sent a scathing email to Hunter over his failure to “prosecute” the former superintendent of WLS, Patrick Hickey.  Hickey takes his daughter, who is currently enrolled at Whitmer, to school in the morning.

The following email exchange was received as a part of a Freedom of Information Act request for my upcoming book, ‘Socked’.

It should be noted the following email exchange was received as a part of a Freedom of Information Act request for my upcoming book, ‘Socked’.  Further,  Kern’s scandalous allegations of Hickey’s past and the ‘harassment’ she claims to have received, are addressed in the upcoming book.  

WLS Board President, David Hunter, responded the following day. Read more ›

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower

If you are trying to figure out why Pokémon GO has taken over the world, it’s rather simple.

During a time where people argue over who’s lives matter most, the craziest presidential election possibly ever, and an endless stream of unconscionable violence — we needed a timeout.

iHeartGlassCity Reader to Help PHCA & Jason Craig’s $8,000 Cash Grab

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower


The Perrysburg Heights Community Association (PHCA) recently “replaced” Director of Operations, Jason Craig, after his embattled tenure.

As Mr. Craig exited his employment, tens of thousands of dollars in PHCA property suddenly came up missing. Missing from the community center include a 65-inch Vizio TV, which was removed from the wall, a deli quality meat cutter, 32 battle bubble balls ($299 each) that were just ordered, received and paid with monies from a Spanish Club grant, and a $6,000 zero-turn lawn mower.

The missing mower hurt the PHCA the hardest as it left the community center helpless to maintain the large property.

Upon reading yesterday’s story on iHeartGlassCity; Michael Vanhoose of Toledo Lawncare and Landscape, messaged me immediately on Facebook. Mr. Vanhoose wanted to help the PHCA during their time of need. Read more ›

Giving Thanks on Mud Hens’ Opening Day

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 7.32.19 AM

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower


With the opening of Hensville,– downtown Toledo grows a little better and bigger today.

Moving the Mud Hens from Maumee to it’s current location was the smartest move our political leaders could have ever made. Fifth Third stadium is the crown jewel of the Glass City. It brings thousands of people (and their money) to the heart of our city, over 70 times a season. The Mud Hens staff always delivers a fun time, clean atmosphere and a reason to come back.

However, let’s make sure the new Hensville expansion doesn’t not hurt some other original investors of the Toledo’s rebirth, our Warehouse District.

From Left to Right in green shirts: Cindy Perry & Karen Gilliam

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower

As you may or may not be aware; I am currently working on a written series to shed light on the public and behind-the-scenes harassment I have been battling.

Yesterday, former OAPSE President and Political candidate, Cindy Perry, tried to have me prosecuted for writing about her during the November campaign. Her complaint was filed with the police over 6 months ago, and only now was she seeking formal charges.

As you may recall, Ms. Perry sent me an entertaining cease & desist letter during the election season- demanding I stop writing about her. When I failed to adhere* to her demands, she wasted tax-payer dollars and filed a police report. Ms. Perry’s letter, her police report and actions yesterday, further prove her lack of mental aptitude** and qualifications for a Board of Elections seat.

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower

Here’s what I am thankful for this morning after the Ohio Primary:
— 35% of registered Lucas County voters went to the polls– in 2012 it was 22%
–Voting seemed to go incredibly smooth with few reports of incidents
–Local TV newscasts will no longer be interrupted by prerecorded political debates via candidate commercials.
–Facebook will be less divisive today, then it has been over the last week. We can now fill newsfeeds with more important things– March Madness brackets, St. Patrick’s Day selfies and OSU/Michigan rhetoric (eight months in advance of the big game).
–That all four of my children expressed political interest, had opinions about the various candidates, and thought outside of their own worlds.
