Minneapolis bridge collapse - Seems especially eerie to me b/c a friend just told me the other day that she's still afraid to drive over the new I-280 bridge...not because she has a fear of heights, but because she's terrified of drowning.

Toledo's pit bull law upheld - so what do you do if you own one? - Like everyone else, I love my pets. I really wonder what effect this case will have on current pit bull owners.

Michigan following Ohio to a state-wide smoking ban. - I'm curious as to how Lucas County bar and restaurant owners feel about the possibility. Will it help business? Or does the nanny state syndrome make it worthy to appose smoking bans everywhere?

I-75 High Speed Pursuit ...where was TPD? - Note: I posted this on Swampbubbles but thought it fitting for Toledo Talk so those who don't visit SB could view it also.

Seniors! Make sure to apply for the state's Homestead Exemption Program! - I know that this has been in the news, but I thought that it needed to be further disseminated. Please check this story and see if you or one of your relatives is eligible.

Top 10 Best Communities in Lake Erie West - Another pointless top-something list, although this one has a local angle. Saline is ranked #1. Shockingly, Toledo didn't make the Top 10. A couple of communities on the list seem questionable to me, no offense to those communities. Here's the list:

Cosi says if their levy doesnt pass they'll have to close - Arent they a private entity? Is the answer to everything that's failing down town to have the taxpayers prop it up with our funds?

Economy Could Force Loved Ones To Leave Ohio - Many Ohio voters say the state's slumping economy could force someone in their family to leave the state in the next year, as government policies and the global economy lead the list of who's to blame for the problem, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. But Gov. Ted Strickland's approval rating has jumped to 61 - 15 percent.

City Changes Garbage Policy; Workers Consider 'Sick-Out' - Sounds like a great opportunity to me. Tell em to f*ck off and privatize the entire operation.

GARBAGE! PERIOD. - GARBAGE. This smells to high heaven, starting with the 21 st floor of Government Center. Who asked the residents if they wanted to contribute to the Mayor's budget by eliminating their garbage pick up for a week? And then to be fined because they either didn't get the memo or thought twice about placing a week's worth of garbage back in the house or garage.
Why doesn't this Mayor think ahead two or three steps. For $4 or less, they could have chosen to pay a ransom to cover the lousy $40,000 for pure sanitary reasons. As unfair as that idea sounds, people of consciousness may place health over a piddling amount of savings.
This kind of patchwork, spur of the moment, strike one neighborhood to save an entire city a few bucks is just what it smells like "GARBAGE."
What kind of reaction ... - More>>

Numbers on Toledo's continual population decline - "Toledo's population loss since 2000 was the 10th-fastest among 258 U.S. cities with populations of more than 100,000 people. Toledo's population fell from 313,782 residents in 2000 to an estimated 298,446 last July, a loss of 15,336 people, or 4.9 percent. The new estimate means Toledo's population declined by 2,839 people one year - from 301,285 in July, 2005. A bright spot[???] is that, at 0.94 percent, the estimated population decline is slower than the 1.1 percent decline posted this time last year."

Steroid use drives another wrestler over the edge - I remember Chris Benoit when he first came on the scene. He was one of those small and fast kids. Then I got away from watching wrestling for a few years. Recently I tuned into a show just for kicks and grins, and I saw him...

AMA to vote on "internet/video-game addiction" as medical condition - I personally know people who are addicted to internet games. Just like other addicts, they cant wait to get off of work so they can rush to their computer and sign in.
