Pastor Tony Ramos was out of his own congressional district, and he would have been even further south if he had his way.
The Toledo pastor of Salem Lutheran in north Toledo and two of his parishioners visited U.S. Rep. Bob Latta's (R-Ohio) field office in Bowling Green Tuesday to protest the shutdown of the federal government.
Though residing in the 9th Congressional District represented by U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio), Ramos said he felt compelled by Ohio's central role in politics to visit other congressmen. If he'd planned ahead, he said, he and his companions, James Colbert and Tony Lafter, would have traveled further south to House Speaker John Boehner's district.
"He needs to hear from a lot more people than just people in his district," Ramos said.

Joan Gordon demanded perfection from herself, and encouraged the same in others.
The Bowling Green civic leader was known for her keen eye for detail, sharp pencil for corrections, and her trademark brown bangs and bun. When she died on Monday, Gordon left her mark on many institutions in the city, and many people who she served with on volunteer boards.
“I honestly can’t think of anyone who has contributed more to Bowling Green over the last 35 years,” said Bill Culbertson, who served as president of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce in 1994 when Gordon was its executive director. “Bowling Green has lost a treasure.”

U.S. Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio) doesn't think the Affordable Care Act is ready to roll out.
He doesn't think it'll ever be ready to roll out.
Still asked straight up if ending funding for the program, or putting it on hold for a year, was needed for him to vote to raise the debt ceiling, he didn't give a definitive answer.
"I haven't heard anyone say they want a shutdown," he said in a telephone interview Tuesday afternoon.
The health care exchanges which are at the center of the bill's efforts to extend health insurance coverage are due to go into effect in less than a week. "This thing is not ready," he said. "In my opinion this thing will never be ready."
Already numerous changes, Latta counts 19, have been made including 14 approved by President Barack Obama.

Attorney William Stephenson made it clear to U.S. Rep  Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) Thursday the group of conservatives and libertarians in his office were "his constituents," not a Democrat or liberal among them.
Latta made it clear that "in this office," his field office on North Main Street in Bowling Green, partisan and ideological labels don't matter.
The issue that dominated the talks, the National Security Agency's monitoring of telecommunications, has brought together usual ideological foes.
Stephenson asked Latta to join senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, both staunch conservatives and Ron Wyden, a liberal Democrat, in calling for congressional investigations into the NSA and "the police state apparatus in this country."
