Does anyone know about tenant rights in Ohio? - Or can you direct me to some informational sites? I have a friend who just told me that their landlord forbids them to have air conditioners and there is no central air in these townhouses. This strikes me as not just cruel, but perhaps illegal. Thanks for any help.

Lucas County ESC - The Lucas County Educational Service Center is a multi-million dollar public educational agency serving school districts in the Greater Toledo Metropolitan area.

Farm Bill 2007 database - "[T]he Environmental Working Group (EWG) released their latest and greatest version of the (in)famous farm subsidy database. The database can be accessed through their MULCH blog. The new database also utilizes Google Maps to map recipients of farm program payments. Whether you live in a rural or urban area, you are guaranteed to be surprised by the number and size of recipients that live in your area. For the first time ever, the database incorporates additional data provided by the USDA that more accurately tracks farm program payments to individual beneficiaries." Map of Toledo area.
