Miss Kaptur (D., Toledo) has been working with the Red Cross over the course of three Congresses to convince them that their operations to serve southeast Michigan and northwest Ohio should be in Toledo.

"It was a fight," she said. "It was a real effort to work with them to show that their requirements and our requirements were a match and, meanwhile, being successful in three appropriation bills to bring tax dollars back home to make the Toledo offer attractive compared to the other choices."

About $4.2 million in federal funding has been obtained to attract health-related jobs here, she said.


God, I love Marcy Kaptur. She's the best representative you could ask for, and one of the strongest and most influential women in Congress. Toledo is very lucky to have her.

i couldnt find anything on wtol but i was watching them talk about it on tv. There is a vacant building that sits right next to fifth third field that many say is an eyesore. Well the problem is being solved because a Detroit Pizza Place is setting up shop here in the Glass City. This just goes to prove me point about the ripple effect from the Mud Hens and what is being forshadowed about the Arena

From WTOL.com

From strip club to pizzeria -- check out new business!

TOLEDO -- Ever since Fifth Third Field was built, there's been plenty of controversy surrounding what should happen to a couple of former strip clubs at Monroe and Huron Sts. One club has been torn down, but the other has survived. And now -- well, it's getting a second chance at life, reports News 11's Rob Wiercinski.

Much to the delight of business operators in the Warehouse District, a PizzaPapalis Tavern is going to open -- right across the street from the Blarney Irish Pub, whose owner is bubbling about his soon-to-be neighbor.

"When I go up to Greektown, we always make it a point to stop and get a great pizza from PizzaPapalis, so to find out they're coming here is a great surprise," says Ed Beczynski.

New life for another property in the Warehouse District is music to the ears of Kathy Steingraber with St. Clair Village. She says it's well worth the time and effort to restore those buildings, because once they're gone, they're gone for good.

"We can't duplicate anything that we have now; they're a major part of the city, a major part of the city's history," Steingraber says.

Besides the Mud Hens, Steingraber says other factors are helping to improve that neighborhood. "We're almost becoming Toledo's Soho. It's people who want to have that urban atmosphere, and a lot of people are happier down here on non-game days," she says.

For Beczynski, it's one more reason to toast the future business climate. "That's what we need, more places like that in downtown, keep that ball rolling. The arena going in, it's just going to keep happening," he says.

I looooove deep dish pizza. I cannot wait for them to open up and it'll remind me that I'm in Chicago. Good move for the business to open up in the former Brenda Body Shop on Monroe & Huron.

Mayor proposes March 4 vote on 0.75% income tax renewal

Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner wants to seek voter renewal of the 0.75-percent temporary income tax at the March 4 election, City Council was told yesterday at its biweekly agenda review meeting.

Council finance committee Chairman George Sarantou said council would have to vote by Dec. 11 to get it on the primary election ballot.

The tax, first approved in 1982, has been renewed regularly since then, usually for four years.

The 0.75 percent is projected to raise about $57.7 million in 2008 and is part of the city's total 2.25 percent wage tax.

Mr. Finkbeiner's chief of staff, Bob Reinbolt, said the tax expires at the end of 2008.

He said renewing the tax earlier in the year will provide assurance of revenue for 2009 when next year's budget proposal is produced.

One-sixth of the tax revenue goes into capital improvements and five-sixths goes into the general fund.

Mr. Sarantou said the issue could be discussed at 4 p.m. Wednesday when the finance committee gets its first look at the mayor's proposed 2008 general operating fund budget.

Also introduced yesterday were:

•A resolution calling on Gov. Ted Strickland and the Ohio General Assembly to reject a proposed restructuring of electricity rates. The resolution says the law would lock in place rates that were supposed to be temporary surcharges and have a negative effect on Toledo's economy.

•Creation of a facade improvement program for the area centering on Dorr Street and Junction Avenue, with $55,500 available for new facades and signs. The program mirrors one recently created for Reynolds Road in the area of Southwyck Shopping Center

HOLY CRAP... IT'S HAPPENING

WTOL.
The City of Toledo has purchased the store that was Dillard's at Southwyck mall.

The store was owned by the Dillard family and operated through the owners of Southwyck mall, who live in Kansas City. Dillard's closed its doors at Southwyck in October.

Mayor Finkbeiner announced Wednesday that the City of Toledo is buying the store and a portion of the parking lot, totaling 11.5 acres, at a cost of $1 million.

Finkbeiner said the money will come from a capitol improvement fund already budgeted for Southwyck. The deal with the Dillard family will close in December. Mayor Finkbeiner will then sell the property to developer Larry Dillin, who is meeting Wednesday with the owners of the mall. Dillin will work out a development plan to redevelop the property. Work may begin in the Spring.

This is good news, eh? I went into Southwyck a few weeks ago and...wow. I'd never been in a dead mall before. Marty can be a dolt, but I hope this works for Toledo.

Remember it's a renewal not a "new" or "increased" tax. So it's important to realize that and it's imperative to keep our fire and police services funded.

It is very good news considering that Dillard's is the one that is the ultimate obstacle and the property will be sold to Dillin as we proceed the long-awaited redevelopment of Southwyck. It is very good news now that we can have a progressive corridor along Reynolds like the south side of turnpike in Maumee. It's time to get moving!

Southwyck Mall Redevelopment Update

Boy, this writer must be out of his creativity mode to write this article. He is clearly writing this on "putting-the-cart-before-the-horse" and needs be patient in regards to any project which always takes time especially with a lot of obstacles. It will all be good at the end.
