How many charter schools in the city have been started, failed and found to have misspent money? If the governor thinks charter schools are a good idea he isn't paying attention to their history in Youngstown.

I hope she succeeds. She's young enough to enjoy the rest of her life.

25 homicides on average annually and failing schools but parents aren't to blame. Yeah right.

There is nothing wrong with Youngstown schools that good parents can't fix. If you don't believe me, look at any surrounding school district.
Kids need someone to make them do homework, someone who is capable of helping with homework, they need to be fed, well rested and see education as something to be taken seriously. Being a successful parent is a tough job and I think we're seeing the result of people not being up to it.

Governor Kasich is good at putting money in the state rainy day fund. Maybe he could send some of those tax dollars that we paid back to Youngstown so the sewer system can be fixed. After all, it's been rainy like crazy here.

Of course the attorneys for this piece of filth want a new trial with a different prosecutor. That's because Trumbull County Prosecutor Dennis Watkins has been extraordinarily successful in keeping Hill in prison throughout his appeals. He also has a very good record of keeping violent offenders in prison as long as possible. Hill's attorneys know they can't win against him.
It will be a great day when he finally serves his sentence in full.

Everything wrong with Youngstown schools comes down to the parents of the students. Kids need stable homes, someone to help them with their homework, someone to read to them when they are young and someone to tell them to shut off the TV and games when they are older. There's not a thing wrong with the schools that couldn't be fixed with better parents.

Kasich can do whatever he likes. The GOP is never going to hand him the VP nomination.

For those of you who say the cost was too high, I ask, what is acceptable to treat these people and keep them close to home?

I've driven a Cruze and found it to be comfortable, sporty and quick. Friends and families have owned them and I've never heard any complaints. I think the sales figures speak to the quality of the vehicle, especially since rebates and incentives are generally not available for Cruzes. It's tough to argue with success.
