Seriously? This is what our congressman was on 60 minutes for? Wars, unemployment, protests, skyrocketing, crippling national debt, and meditation is going to make it all go away... Wow!, Wow!, Wow!, what a bunch of fools we are.This "mindfulness" may reduce stress for people that work 1/3 of the year, but us folks that work 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, we might need something else.Also, becoming a millionaire while being a US congressman, as so many of them have, also aids in stress reduction. Perhaps he should write a book on that..... I have had enough of this guy's crap. I apologize for my lack of respect, but I have just had enough.

Serious question: To what extent are the low number of workers affected by the "baby-boom"? Everyone in the previous generation knew the baby boom was coming, but instead of saving for it, they spent like there was no tomorrow. Tomorrow is here.

Not enough businesses are investing in research at YSU, or contributing enough to help ensure graduates to fill positions locally. Its because so many businesses have cutback or off-shored. Now academics is funded less because of it and depends more on tuition. State funding is also decreased. If sports brings it in on its own, then so be it. If it does not, so be it.

Don't change anything. It is good that YSU is increasing by three fold in athletics than it is in academics. Keep it the way it is. Once the pesky academics program is finally shut down, the sportos can turn it into a professional sports program that still LOSES money. I mean, this is the Mahoning Valley. We favor sports figures over intellects in school systems, government, and colleges. Only the outside world notices how short we are of scientists. Not around here. Scientists are just a pain in our behinds. They think WAY too much! Its just the way it is. Don't complain, just be ready to turn the lights out when it all gets shut down.

"The city’s health-insurance plans are $666 for single coverage and $1,678 for family coverage"
-- First off, those numbers are crazy to start with.
"The caps are $100 a month for single coverage and $200 for family coverage."
-- This is a pretty small contribution to cover the cost of those policies.
worst case policy cost: 138 x 1,678 = $231,000 per monthbest case contributions: 138 x 200 = $27,600 per monththe city's cost = $204,000 per month for health insurance for just the fire department
