Hey Stan and Kathy, read my post again and maybe you'll get my point. Eric understood what i was trying to say. I don't know if the guy did the crime or not, and neither do you. But if we allow people to beat up any random individual suspected of a crime, we are really setting ourselves up for chaos. Who's to stop someone from beating the two of you if they suspected you of committing a crime?

With all the advances in science, technology, health, etc. can't we build a car that doesn't rely on gas/oil? Imagine all the job opportunities for this country. I understand that this change-over wouldn't happen overnight, but it doesn't seem that our country is really making a push towards alternative fuel. Car companies are touting new automobiles that get better gas milage, but so what? If the price of gas keeps rising, it's not going to save people much in the long run. If a company came out with a reliable, affordable car that i didn't have to fill up with gas every other day, i would definately buy it.

Are you serious? So beating the he** out of anyone suspected of a crime will keep society safer? WOW! You don't know how rediculous that sounds. As much as one may want to take justice into their own hands, allowing those actions would open up a pandora's box that everyone would regret.

Where do all of you so-called experts get your figures from? Do you pull them out of thin air? Just because you state a number or percentage doesn't make it factual. It's not difficult to understand why this country is falling so far. When people want things that they can't afford and live way beyond their means, the bottom eventually falls out on everyone. Coupled with that is now there are more people taking from the system than actually paying into it, so why are we surprised that we're in this predicament? When work ethic is no longer valued and it pays more to sit on your a**, then why should anyone care about the economy?

Those are concessions? Where most people work, those things are taken from them and they don't call them "concessions" nor do they get to vote for it. Also, if GM wants to close Lordstown, they'll close it without any reason, because they can. It's naive to think that the possibility of a new car would save the plant from being closed. If GM can pay foreigners pennies to build their cars, why would they pay an American union auto worker much more with benefits on top of that?

So it's alright to use taxpayer money to transport all sports teams to Akron, Canton, etc. but using taxpayer money to pay the salaries of those that work in the schools with kids is not? You all make a lot of sense.

Is this really that big of a deal? I have yet to see the "There is more to this..." reasoning behind why some of you think the district is considering starting early. Does anyone have an intelligent opinion why they feel that this option is being considered? or are some of you just going to say that you "know" why the district is considering this, but never explain. Every district does things that not everyone agrees with. For those of you who are thinking of moving away, you'll probably find something frivolous to complain about in your new district.

Someone tell me what the board's ulterior motive is with starting early? Sabotaging the Canfield Fair?

Knock the piece of sh** building down. Youngstown needs improvements, not another building rotting to the ground.
