For Ed FitzGerald, it all boils down to one questions.
"When you get up every morning, who do you think you work for? Who do you think you answer to?"
The Democratic gubernatorial candidate brought that questions as well as his views on education, the economy, and the administration of incumbent Republican Governor John Kasich to Bowling Green on Saturday.
FitzGerald appeared at a fundraising event hosted at the home of Kelly and Laura Wicks.
The stop was the latest in a series FitzGerald has made in the area over the last 15 months. A former FBI special agent, he is currently serving as Cuyahoga County executive.
Prior to making official remarks, the candidate said Kasich was polling at 43 percent in a recent survey, which he characterized as a difficult situation for an incumbent.
"I think that shows our message is resonating," FitzGerald said.

Bob Hastings has led a nomadic theatrical life in Bowling Green for more than three decades.
This weekend and next Hastings insists he will directing his last show, "The Fox on the Fairway," a Black Swamp Players production, at the First United Methodist Church.
"It has been a good run. I've had a lot of fun and made a lot of friends," Hastings, now 82, said. "I've been threatening to retire for a while. The reaction has been 'Yeah, yeah, we've heard that before.' But I'm really gonna retire this time," Hastings said. After a pause he added, "I think." 
His acting and directing efforts have been on display at venues ranging from the church, to Woodland Mall and a variety of other places that had space for a stage and sometimes did not seat many spectators.

Common Core stirs concern PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - There was no doubt that the 50-plus people who attended an information meeting on Common Core Thursday were unhappy with what they heard.
Many groaned in surprise when they saw some names associated with the new standards, and grumbled unhappily as they heard questions now being asked students.
The Maumee Valley Defenders of  Liberty and the Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition sponsored the public discussion on the pros and cons of Common Core at Way Library.
The standing-room-only crowd saw the timeline that unfolded up to Common Core, and heard some sample questions from the new tests.
Common Core is an initiative to establish consistent educational standards across the states with the intent to prepare students for college and careers.
In 2010, the Board of Education in Ohio adopted the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics. The board also adopted more rigorous versions of Ohio's academic content standards in science and social studies. All four sets of standards will underpin teaching in classrooms by 2014-2015.
Forty-five states have adopted the standards.

Wood County's rank in the health of its residents has risen for the fourth year in a row.
The county ranks sixth overall this year out of Ohio's 88 counties, according to a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
County health rankings provide comparisons within a state on 29 factors that impact health, including smoking, high school graduation rates, unemployment, physical inactivity and access to healthy foods. The rankings are available at www.countyhealthrankings.org.
The latest ranking shows consistent improvement for Wood County, as it improved upon a rank of 11 in 2011, ninth in 2012 and seventh in 2013.
"These reports are good for recognizing where Wood County succeeds in being a healthy place to live, but they are also valuable for helping to identity areas for improvement," said Pat Snyder, health education, information and communications manager for the Wood County Health District.
One measure for improvement is clinical care, the health district stated in a news release. Wood County improved from being ranked 19th in 2013 to 12th in 2014, but there is still room for improvement.
