I am sick and tired of all the negativism that seems to permeate the commentaries and discussions of the City of Toledo and of Lucas County, Ohio. Consequently, I have decided to rattle off just a few of what I perceive, in no specific order, as the positive attributes of Toledo, Ohio and of Lucas County, Ohio.
Moderate Geographical and Population Size
Ethnic, Racial, Religious, and Cultural Diversity
Rail, Air, Water, Highway Hub
Public Bus System
Area Metroparks and Toledo City Parks
Museum of Art
Stranahan Theater at Masonic Complex
University of Toledo
Area Office on Aging
Children Services Board Agency
Child Support Enforcement Agency
Westfield Shopping Center at Franklin Park
Suburban cities and villages
To reiterate, in my opinion, those are just a few of the attributes. Please feel free to add in the comments section your own list of positive attributes.
Incidentally, I would have loved to put Owens Community College in there, but neither is it in Toledo, nor is it in Lucas County.
