Does anybody know what's going on with GCJ? It's been in maintenance mode for quite a few days now. (Toledo Talk is still my favorite though, I'm just curious) :-)

I was going to post something like that too... I keep checking it.. but I check this one all the time too.
Apparently Lisa accepted an offer to work full time, and she will no longer be maintaining GCJ.
She has updated the main page with the details.
I hope the new job will be great for Lisa, but I am sorry to hear this and read the details on GCJ. That was a great local resource. In fact, it was the only place to get a lot of local political and government information.
Well that sucks...for us, not for Lisa, good for her.
Where can I find detailed City council notes then?
Jim here's the city link click on Council website and at the bottom right instructions for FTP server (File Transfer Protocal) You will need to use IE browser and then click on ok even though the site is not certified. It's necessary to download the sound files to your drive to play back with any media program like Windows Media. Council clerk is very good at prompt delivery but it usually is next day. Good luck!

so nobody knows where lisa rene has taken a job? come on people, fess up, enquiring minds wanna know.
In addition to maintaining GCJ, Lisa worked as Web editor for the Toledo Free Press.
July 29, 2011 Toledo Free Press statement by Thomas F. Pounds, president and publisher of the TFP:
There are people who begin as co-workers and evolve into trusted friends and advisers. For myself and Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller, Ward has been a true partner and confidant, one with unwavering ethics and an opposing political view that has broadened our viewpoints and our pages of opinion. We are happy and proud for her as she begins a new life, but we will greatly miss her contributions to our ongoing experiment.
It is the nature of this business that people can make a major impact in a brief time. It is also the nature of this business that people move on as quickly as they arrive. As we say goodbye to Lisa Renee Ward, one of our greatest collaborators, we struggle with emotions of pride for her career ascent and concern for the changes her leaving will cause.
"within city government..." clerk of council's office? she could not possibly work for the administration could she?! everybody else is stuck in a hiring freeze. no?
