When will Toledo Public Schools realize that it is like an annoying child who keeps bugging voters (“TPS ponders next move after defeat of tax issue; Superintendent praises efforts of campaign,” Nov. 8)?
TPS officials should fix some of their problems and come back to voters in a couple of years. Maybe then TPS can get more money.
Redistrict defeat leaves a problem
I am sad that Issue 2 was defeated (“Ohioans reject both state issues by wide margins; Constitutional convention, redistricting proposal lose,” Nov. 7). I hope the redistricting problem will be resolved.
Casino’s problem: Poor service
My husband and I read about how Hollywood Casino Toledo is not taking in the money that was expected. I can give you a reason: no customer service (“Wagering falls, but city to rake in $1.2M from casino for 3rd quarter,” Oct. 10).
My husband and I stopped at the casino for the first time recently. We didn’t know how to purchase tickets or use the gaming machines. We did not see anyone who worked for the casino we could ask for help. We left, spending nothing.
Every person who walks through the casino’s door is a potential customer and should be treated as such. It doesn’t matter how much is spent, but that the customer is satisfied and will recommend it to friends.
‘Care plan’ aids cancer survivors
On behalf of ProMedica Cancer Institute, I thank you for making the community aware of an often-overlooked component of cancer care (“A care plan: Mapping it out helps breast cancer survivors thrive in body, mind,” Oct. 8).
Survivorship is a major issue in cancer treatment and follow-up, not only for breast cancer but also for other cancers. This reflects recent improved diagnostic and treatment advances.
ProMedica has one of the two survivor programs in Ohio, at Flower Hospital’s Hickman Cancer Center. Our program supports the range of physical and psychological challenges patients face.
Research has shown that communication between oncologists and primary-care physicians is important for patients to receive adequate post-treatment care that addresses other issues besides oncologic care.
