        We recently learned that President Donald Trump uses the term “fake news” to disparage news about his administration that he just doesn’t like. That’s a far cry from what most of us believe the term means-- fabricated content packaged as news. “Fake news” will move into our lexicon with its alternative meaning just like “cool, “neat” and “rad”.

         Our hold on reality can slip when such words can be twisted, their meaning expanded. But, words are alive, meanings can change over time. Some words strung together in a phrase can have little meaning to one person while inspiring another. Here’s hoping one of these class mottos speaks to you as you embark on your journey to discover yourself and your place in this world.

        News: The family of Charles “Bud” and Lillian Lagger honored the couple on their 50th wedding anniversary by making a donation to name a training school in Cambodia after them. The school was the project of Digital Divide Data, Goodwill Industries International and Goodwill of Northwest Ohio where daughter Deb was the director of Workforce Development for Goodwill of Northwest Ohio.

        The wrecking balls, excavators, dump trucks and dumpsters are coming to East Toledo next month. The rats will scurry and the debris will pile up.

        Patience will be required, but it’s all good. Property values will increase, squatter and drug houses will decrease.

        “Demolition Mann”, aka David Mann, president of the Lucas County Land Bank, spoke last week at the East Toledo Senior Center to inform East Toledoans that 224 houses will be razed and their sites leveled and cleaned up by January 31.

        Mann’s presentation was sponsored by The East Toledo Club.
