toledo real estate: Raceway Park, Horse Racing, Toledo Ohio, Lucas County - 05/19/08 03:21 PM
This past fall one of my friends said let's go to Raceway Park. I remarked who goes there these days? However, my friend was recovering from a serious illness, so my wife and I decided to join her and her husband. We were pleasantly surprised. The evening was a lot of fun, the food was good, and while we were eating we could bet on the horses. I had not thought much about that evening, but when our friends asked what did we want to do this weekend, I said let's go to Raceway Park. How many times have you gone out (0 comments)

toledo real estate: First American Home Buyers Protection Corp., Warranty, Epiration Date, Lack of Notification - 05/09/08 06:21 PM
Let me first say I am a believer in Home Warranties. It not only protects our Buyers, Sellers, but also Realtors. In a world where we must be attuned to CYA, a Home Warranty is a must in my real estate transactions. One thing that other Realtors may not be aware of is with a First American Home Warranty, the warranty period is only for 6 months. I don't know about other Realtors but I typically have a one year listing agreement with my Sellers. Now here is the problem. First American Home Buyers Protection Corporation, which in my eyes is (0 comments)

Just ask her , she'll tell you. Last night, she brought up a very interesting comment that would make a major a major impact on the school district where she works and (1 comments)
toledo real estate: Casinos,Toledo Ohio,The Free Press, Mayor Carty Finkbiner,COSI, - 04/13/08 04:24 PM
I can’t believe what I am about to say. I agree with Mayor Carty Finkbiner, Toledo Ohio. In the April 13th, edition of the Toledo Free Press, Pg A3 of the Publisher’s Statement article, “Roll of the Dice”, Carty told the Free Press in July 2006 “I do not see gambling as the devil that some people do, nor do I see it as the panacea to our economic challenges”. “It’s common sense that if Michigan and Indiana and Pennsylvania have these options available, we probably could and should offer a venue here in Toledo.
