Leading Edge with Jerry Anderson – April 27, 2014

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Gay marriage has taken some major strides towards becoming a legal reality in our area recently. First, a federal judge struck down Michigan's voter-approved ban on same sex marriages. Then a federal court ordered Ohio to recognize gay marriages performed in other states. Now both rulings have been put on hold as the cases are appealed.

So, is it only a matter of time before Ohio allows same-sex couples to get married? Jerry sits down with Ian James, founder and president of Freedom to Marry Ohio to get the latest on a petition effort to legalize the marriages.

Next, Jerry speaks to two Toledo Police officers going beyond the call of duty to help keep kids off the streets this summer. For more on the STRIVE program, visit https://www.facebook.com/StriveToledoInc.

Finally, Jerry talks to a woman who took it upon herself to help veterans dealing with injuries you may not be able to see. For more on Dancing with the Military Stars, visit http://www.dancingwiththemilitarystars.com/.
