Carnival of Ohio Politics #129 Web Spinning...

When searching for images related to number "129" I found this Batman cover for issue number 129, "The Web of the Spinner" and it was impossible to resist. Not just because I'm a fan of Batman, but this is the web and at times? Bloggers spin...Hence? Welcome to the web spinning edition of the Carnival of Ohio Politics, will it be a spin or no spin? You decide...

First up Roland Hansen of Roland Hansen Commentary reintroduces his belief that It's about time the citizens of Ohio's Lucas County seriously consider the possibility of changing the composition, structure, and form of local government for Lucas County. Reinventing Ohio's Lucas County Government is his submission.

Kelly Bell's For Whom the Bell Tolls received a post card from her congressman that stated, "Congressman Pat Tiberi: easing the strain on your wallet.” After doing some math, it appears Kelly has a different reaction than what the Congressman wanted when it comes to Tiberi and Taxes.

Over at Just Blowing Smoke our Toledo Mayor's recent actions concerning the Erie Street Market brought back Memories of his youth, that include a favorite of mine, "Spy vs Spy." Then Tim suggests residents of our area should Run for your lives...COSI is back.

Pat Tiberi gets some additional focus over on Blue Bexley where it's pointed out how far Pat Tiberi will go out of his way to
hang out with the President then he follows up with Bush signs bill on airforce. Then, past instances of voter overload with lengthy bond proposals as well as concern that will be repeated in Columbus creates a thought provoking content before this presidential election.

While some maybe thinking about China and the Olympics, Harold Thomas of Ohio Republic points out some facts on China including how many jobs Ohio has lost to China since 2001. It's not a gold medal moment for Ohio...

Ben Keeler has two from The Point, first he and Kyle interviewed both candidates competing in OH-16, Republican Kirk Schuring and Democrat John Boccieri. Then it's pondered how could anyone have been surprised by what happened in Cuyahoga County last week in what is called the Summer Fever of Corruption. Posting from the Keeler Political Report Ben points out the story of an Ohio death row inmate says he is "too fat" to be executed.

From the men at Buckeye Punditeers, we have Bradley's take on Keno, Good run of bad luck. Next Bradley turns his focus to the suggestion that if Kilroy does not win it will be more due to the Columbus Dispatch than her opponent. Michael's post submitted to the carnival focuses on what he's titled, Obama's Tank Moment.

Corruption is the topic from Boring Made Dull, with two posts on the recent events in Cuyahoga County, Culture of Corruption: Cuyahoga Edition and Cuyahgoa County Corruption Probe. It's pointed out that while some of the real estate transfers being looked at could be legal, for what Frank Russo reportedly earns, he has a nice barn...

From Whalertly Blog Robert writes that it's stated that while many complain about fuel prices, few suggest things that would help. He provides 3 things that WOULD decrease gas prices. Slightly off politics but related to Ohio, a focus on Columbus sports teams.

From Glass City Jungle the story of Baldemar Velásquez traveling from Northwestern Ohio to work in the tobacco fields of North Carolina has been something I've been trying to draw attention to. The trial and then the finding of not guilty in the case of Sgt. Joe Chavalia in Lima has been a much debated topic on the Jungle as well as other parts of the blogosophere.
