Redeye, any links to verify your niece's story? Could be true, but I'm willing to bet your niece is full of sh!t.

I remember reading about the initial bust. With that amount, he should've been facing major prison time. But since only inner-city types go to prison for drug offenses, they just gave him a slap on the wrist.

Just so there's no confusion, I'm not talking about the Gardens, but the new cafe owners.
Google his name, you'll see what he did even though the local media outlets did their best to cover it only minimally. I guess when your name's Mitch the newspapers care far less than if your name's Jamal.

“Everything we do at Fellows Riverside Gardens has to connect people with plants,”
Couldn't have said it better! Everyone knows that these people were charged and convicted with drug possession right?

Hiring Jim Tressel as president is what makes YSU a laughingstock. No self-respecting university would hire a coach to be president.
I love this idea of "if you don't like it, leave". Who do you think is writing your kid's letters of recommendation? The athletics dept.? The bloated administation? No, it's the faculty. Treat them like garbage, and they're going to fight back.
A university is not the same thing as a high-school. It's built around faculty research, and then that trickles down to students through teaching. YSU already struggles to get decent faculty (low pay, little research support, disinterested students, athletics dept. more important than academics, etc.), and by making the situation even worse it loses the chance to hire good, new faculty.

So, does he have a farm? I'm just wondering if he does, what else is grown there since he's at Friends Specialty!

In what world is voting 95% of the time with your own party considered to be "low"?
A reverse carpetbagger who has barely even lived in the 6th district, speaks with a Southern accent, left the military only to get a cushy job with a military-industrial complex contractor, and now he pretends to represent the 6th district! That entire Ohio River district deserves to be poor if they're uninformed enough to vote Johnson.

Shame this didn't happen to him 30 years ago.
