Repeat after me: Spelling ALWAYS counts!
To vision:Toledo - my apology for missing the “here” that ought to be “hear” in Thursday’s BIG Toledo Community Meeting poster (author unknown).
To those who, like me, snag on such errors, the fault was mine for posting it as-is.
Thanks for keeping me on my toes. The Other Toledo enjoys the best audience in, well, Toledo.
