I grew up in Toledo, and even though I've been gone since 1990, I deeply miss HOME. We come home twice a year to visit with my Mom, my husband's sister, as well as, our friends and various other relatives. As I tell people, you don't know what you have until it's gone. The Toledo Zoo is also one of the best in the country!! Unfortunately I don't have an answer to the branding of Toledo. What about JEEP? Possibly something similar to Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit" could be used. I read recently about Toledo being a "Port of Call" for some internal cruise lines. This is a fantastic idea!! There could be tour guides at the port to take visitors to the Museum, Zoo, local happenings, etc. I try to promote Toledo as much as I can.

Hopefully, Collins will be able to hire some people that have a better marketing. There are so many great things here. I will never understand some of the negative attitudes of the people, who live in N.W. Ohio. They make themselves miserable and do more damage than they are worth.

About Jeff Gerritt

I am the deputy editorial-page editor of The Blade. I recently moved to Toledo’s warehouse district, after spending 13 years in Detroit, where I was an editorial writer and columnist for the Detroit Free Press.

I’ve always walked the streets, writing about prisoners, addicts, homeless people, gang members -- and ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

I played drums professionally for three years, and I’ve also been a factory worker, security guard, house painter, janitor, landscaper, and construction worker.

Everyone has a story. I like the ones that haven’t been told.
