Placing the Newton Falls issue on the 2015 November ballot is a no-brainer. Just follow court orders, for a change.

Good for the city; BOE members have no right to rule on the constitutionality of anything; that is strictly a judicial matter. Too many arrogant petty bureaucrats and party hacks around here try to usurp the powers of judges and juries.

BOEs are supposed to promote, not prevent, elections. And whether or not an issue is constitutional is not their call; that is a judicial decision, not one issued by party hacks and shale industry prostitutes.

There are minimum age requirements for a driver's license, and this accident (like countless others involving very elderly - and therefore incapacitated drivers) once again demonstrates the need for maximum age restrictions, or at least thorough monthly driving exams. Putting an 88-year old behind the wheel is worse than putting a drunk in the driver's seat.

The Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations is a fraud. Founded by a hotshot entrepreneur (Russell Quaglia), it is headquartered in a house in Portland, Maine and merely pumps out a bunch of surveys to be taken by its pupil/staff victims; its only product are glitzy self-congratulatory reports (like My Voice Ohio) and its only reason for existence is to get lucrative contracts, like that 200 grand, from duped school boards.

Ross has as much right to oversee public education in Ohio as a fox has to watch over all the hen houses.

what happened in the jail cell? Same thing that happened recently on a Cincy street to a DWB victim: murder.

Where's there's a will, there's a way. Outside of Commissioner Traficanti, inspired/informed by the late Honorable James Traficant, there seems to be no sense of urgency, let alone will to transform these cesspools back into lakes. Crap and carp win; the people and park lose.

This ugly case gets uglier by the day, as does the cover-up of her murder. The video of her unlawful arrest was edited; a statement from the racist Sheriff, R. Glenn Smith, claiming she told the cops that she once considered suicide is a total lie. Smith has a long record of racist behavior, something that got him fired from his former job in Hempstead, but his overt racism was evidently welcomed in Waller County, Texas, among the most racist places in the USA. Ms. Bland, a strong Black woman and outspoken advocate of racial equality, was lynched in jail by racists in uniform.

As Governor Kasick was/is a disaster (SB5, Youngstown Plan, ad nauseum); as US Prez he would be 50 times worse.
