Gadfly Bites 2/8/19 – Thus bud’s for you…maybe

  1. We told you a while back about a Toledo native and “herbal entrepreneur” (shall we say) who says he’s got a great plan to boost education in Frogtown and apparently plenty of green stuff with which to implement it. This week, dude went before the school board to hash out details. The Toledo Bud has the story. (Toledo Blade, 2/8/19)
  2. St. Mary School in Elyria is in danger of closing after 160 years due to a funding shortfall. This piece from the Chronicle says that “more students” is the only answer, noting prominently that the school accepts students with EdChoice vouchers. But, seriously, bro, you sure that’s the ONLY answer? ‘Cause the good folks in Toledo could have a new vein you might consider tapping for some additional green. Just sayin’. (Elyria Chronicle, 2/8/19)
