$270,000 divided by 3 years equals $90,000 a year. Not a bad deal. Where do I sign up? Fat chance of ever seeing a penny of restitution. That is always a nice touch in a sentencing, but never realized. Who says crime doesn't pay?

Do the black community leaders seriously see how ridiculous they sound, let alone how much credibility they loose when they make such idiotic comments?

Which state's AG holds a news conference to make a statement that he has no statement? Oh, that would be Ohio.

Wow, another Canadian software company just like where Obama got his software for the Not So Affordable Health Care web site. I guess there are no software producers in the US.
If this software was never doing what it was supposed to do, why was Niles paying for it for so long? And why isn't Niles suing someone over this?
And Mr. Merlo's comment about there being no interest. Niles is paying $220,000 for some software. Do you think a little finance charge might be built into that price?
PLUS another $70,000 to $100,000 to get what is really needed. What a bargain.
And a "failure" that Niles kept paying for for three years. Oh well, the money did not come out of the government leader's pockets.

Wow. I can't wait to see this big boost in the economy over a whopping dime. I am sure the fast food worker will be able to run right out and buy that new car they always wanted. Anything else they buy with all of that big pay raise will only boost China or Japan's economy, not ours. And you can bet that small businesses will use this wage increase as an excuse to kick up prices, probably more than the $.10 costs them.

OH, AND I TOTALLY FORGOT:YSU pissed away two time outs early in the first half because this late in the season they can't get their act together. This resulted in having to settle for a field goal late in the first half instead of going for the TD. That is inexcusable this late in the season. And what happens in the beginning of the second half? More wasted time outs. This is totally on the coaching.

No doubt the loss of a starting quarterback will negatively impact a team. When you couple that with a defensive secondary that played NDS's receivers extremely soft along with very poor tackling skills, almost no pass rush, and a quarterback that was running for his life almost all afternoon, YSU's fate was easy to predict early in the game. Please don't get me wrong. I love YSU. But what I saw Saturday is not a playoff quality team.

Where do the police officers come from that are used to "beef up" an area? Are they taken from another area of the city thus leaving other city areas unprotected? Are they overtime officers? Are they officers that are sitting around doing nothing until needed for a special event such as "beefing up" an area? Where to these extra police officers come from?

Same old story. Government created tax incentives are nice, but don't cut it in the big picture for businesses. Other than offering to cut taxes for businesses that come (or stay) here, these government created "cheer leaders" can't do much to convince a business to come (or stay) in this area. The golden issues is labor costs. Employers simply can go elsewhere for cheaper labor and save way more than the tax incentive, not to mention that other states are also willing to give incentives. it all boils down to the fact that other states are more willing to sell out it citizen/employees that Ohio, but to the cost of loosing jobs left and right.
