What, they have a kitchen and a personal cook at the BOE building? Seriously?

Richard Lewis, you are a complete ass. If you have any doubts, just know it is true... :) Betram does his job by reporting public salaries when they are relevant. Give him credit for writing about something other than the OakRidge boys every Sunday....
I suspected that Mrs. Hagan had very little adaptability for being in public office, so far it appears I am right. But hey, electing bad politicians is almost always what Youngstown does. Nothing new here folks, move along.

By Mr. Gilliam's logic, all of the plethora of grants received in low to moderate income neighborhoods should be shared with middle and upper class neighborhoods as well. I like it. Now I can get my middle class street paved. Yay! Artis for President!

According to Wikipedia, which is proven to be 95% accurate, fast-fashion is a contemporary term used by fashion retailers to express that designs move from catwalk quickly in order to capture current fashion trends.

This is the first good news in a long time I have heard coming out of the WRPA. Perhaps Mr. Covelli and Mr. Moliterno, and other new members are really making a difference for the board. Happy New Year!

Perhaps you should have "thought" in a mindful way to look into the prison contract, prior to the actual awarding of it. I see you were "doing everything you could", in between your appearances as the renowned book author... http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ohio-cong... and your vacationing and fundraising in Florida.
I congratulate you on your national notoriety. Your the best.

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.
