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.

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.

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.
The top story on the local news last night, was about an incident that occurred at McCord Junior High School.
It happened on February 17th, during my daughter’s basketball game. I was sitting right there, next to the student section– little did I know what was about to take place.
A school-sponsored athletic event that was used as a vehicle to benefit Austin’s Book Club. It was a beautiful turnout of enthusiastic children wearing tie-dye and bringing books for Toledo Hospital’s Nicu Unit. It was McCord’s opportunity to give support and show love for one of their own.
