The importance of NORIS

That's the title of my Eye on Toledo column in this week's Toledo Free Press, and I hope you'll take the time to read it. Vallie Bowman-English, the Clerk of Toledo Municipal Court, will be my guest on Eye on Toledo Thursday, Dec. 27, and we'll discuss just what NORIS means to her and her office. I believe that NORIS is vital to community safety - every bit as
important as police or fire departments - and the mayor should fund this
before he wastes tax funds on his various pet projects.

Also in this issue of the TFP is a great article on Camp Adventure and a must-read by Justin Kalmes which focuses on comments by city of Toledo staffer Andy Ferrara about Citifest and the Erie Street Market. Interestingly, what Ferrara says now seems to conflict with earlier statements about the ordinance on council's agenda for January 2, 2008, not including any 'public funds.'

Excellent post Maggie!

But, you know as well as I do that "His Dishonor" is all about bright, shiny, sparkling things, flowers and signage; with all of that on his plate, there's just no room for public safety/courts and all...

Oh, I almost forgot, "We're #3, Hoo-Frickin-Ray. . .

That, sadly is where his focus if.
