The report did not indicate how the teeth caps were stolen. Also listed as being stolen was $600 in cash, a cellular telephone valued at $400, and gold earrings worth $300, the report saidÖLetís say for example this really did happen, what does it say about contemporary urban values?

I know it's Toledo Talk but someone did mention Perrysburg - and its embarrassingly low voter turnout. Sentimental favorite Nelson Evans was top vote getter and the least qualified of the four candidates but with only 20% of registered voters turning out at the pollsÖ. Jeez, thatís only 8-9 percent of Perrysburg residents voting for him. Whatís your take?
