This country doesn't have a national religion, and I'm thankful for that. If the council wants to have an opening invocation any religious group has that right. You may disagree with their views but that doesn't mean they should be discriminated against.

The best option is to observe the posted speed limit.

I agree with CountyBoy. I'm not blaming the victim, but this guy had $36,800 in guns with no insurance, no gun safe, and storing them at someone else's house? That's like me parking my running, unlocked car at the mall for several hours and expecting it to be there when I return. He will never see his money.

The home healthcare staff have to get to the patients' homes somehow. Doesn't a locally built vehicle make the most sense?

5 years?? Let's not forget that the "victim" is an ADULT. In Ohio the age of consent is 16, so she would have been free to have sex with a 16 year old child as long as he wasn't a student at her school. Amanda should have had better judgement given the law prohibiting sex with a student in one's own school, but I think the punishment is more than enough considering her career is over, she has a permanent mark on her record, and the victim was more than capable of consenting.

I'm not advocating for drug use, but isn't there something wrong with paramedics calling the police on someone who overdosed? That would just discourage the abuser from calling for help. Gordon Dale Davis was passed out, so it's not like he was fighting with the paramedics. If the safety of the paramedics was in danger I certainly understand the police being called, but otherwise I have a problem with that.

I have an idea. Get a JOB and stop living off of the government.

We have to keep in mind two things about the new owners. First, they are FOR PROFIT, second, they are a Tennessee based company where unions are virtually unheard of. Don't expect any concession they don't absolutely have to make. CHS is in healthcare to make a profit, and they don't bend to union demands.
Call it greedy if you must, but CHS is keeping this place going. And they must be doing something right if the hospital is financially solvent. Welcome to the new world of healthcare.

Why would the restaurant have shut down afterwards? They are a business, and they don't make money if they are closed. It's not the restaurant's fault a drug addict decided to OD in their bathroom.

I used to lifeguard at North Side pool back in the mid 90s. It was the old round pool, and most of the kids walked to it. I had a great time working there. I remember that one summer there were actually three pools open: North Side, Borts, and the pool on the east side (the name of that one escapes me). The biggest problem then was lack of lifeguards. The lifeguards were afraid to guard at the city pools because of reputations for violence. North Side never had a problem, but I recall one of the biggest problems at Borts were the neighbors who didn't want the pool open. One summer they threw broken glass into the pool one week before the end of the season. Undeterred, McRae had the pool cleaned and reopened for the last few days.
The city should have pools open for neighborhood kids to walk to. We complain about youth violence, yet we don't want to provide fun, safe places for them to go.
