This was my point:
"The program lets school districts that serve mostly low-income areas to make all students eligible for the free meals"
Take away the low income qualification by doing something to provide jobs and the area no longer meets the qualification.
I completely understand why you guys are upset but you don't look at a hungry kid and say "sorry your mom and dad can't feed you." You help them out and hope they grow up to do the same for others.

I'm guessing two councilors don't want to lose their jobs.

I understand the criticism but teachers have to deal with hungry kids and they are a distraction in the classroom. Of all the things we waste tax dollars on I can't get too worked up over giving a kid some food.
Besides, if we had better paying jobs available to people whole communities wouldn't qualify for free lunches.

There are large number of people who care about the city and try to make it a better place. Then there are those who think they live in a place where pulling guns and shooting people down is perfectly acceptable. They've failed in life so why not put other people's lives in danger? Where are the parents of these fools?

This money would have been better spent investigating why Trumbull County residents with septic tanks have to have those ugly new systems installed and why only certain companies can do the work.

"All that remains now is to get Jerry Sandusky released from prison so that he can MC the event."
I don't understand this comment. Why would anyone believe a child molester should be at these games?

How does Sciortino still hold office? The indictment is one thing but there's also the "I'm not drunk I'm sleeping in Wendy's parking lot" incident to consider.

Well, Kasich did grab a bunch of money that should go to local government and education and squirrel it away in the rainy day fund. There's nothing wrong with asking that the tax money we send Columbus be returned for use by the tax payers.
I have a feeling he's doing this so that in 2016 he can say he made Ohio solvent and lowered state taxes so he can be the VP candidate of the GOP.

YSU needs a tuition freeze for multiple years in order to attract students. The faculty and non-faculty staff should do what's needed to make that happen. If it means a wage freeze or a change in benefits, then that needs to happen.

It would be great if Tressel would announce a four year tuition freeze and let the faculty know that the university is there to serve the students. If they don't like it they can always look for another job.
