Hats off to the Trumbull County Commissioners for reaching of the highest level of integrity within the Port Authority. The Valley cannot afford its continued ways of cronyism (and sympathies for their loss of Mr. Heltzel - a good man).

Classy act. How it should be done.

I understand the surviving geese have formed a parameter around Lake Newport. They have called on other Canadian geese, who pulled out of Mill Creek two years ago, to see if they will send more geese. However, Ottawa responded they dont want anymore webbed feet on the ground, but may send technical advisors and perform 'aerial bombardments' on the militant ODNR.

First, why dont they move the stage and the speakers so that the sound is going away from the residential. That will help a little. Also, can they install sound walls behind the stage? Also, have a 10:30 cutoff for the outdoor stage, and the next act goes indoors at Warehouse 50. Not rocket science to make some small changes that will help a bit.

In the meantime, there can probably be some practical things that could help, like placement of the stage and speakers so sound travels towards the hill/YSU? Won't eradicate the noise, but should drop it a bit. Also a curfew on the outdoor stage of maybe 10:30, and maybe then the next band could play inside Warehouse 50 after that?

I worry that Ohio spends way too much time protecting old assets, old ways of thinking, without promoting innovation. Cleantech is where the rest of the world is going. Even shale development should be considered a bridge to sustain newer clean and green investing. There are utilities that have been out there innovating, using multiple sources of cleantech for generation, and investing in smartgrid tech to make it work. But I wonder if FirstEnergy spends more time protecting its inefficient systems? I dont have all the answers, but I'd like to hear more.
