Another example of how clueless some people are. When I think of an artifact I think of some Native American flint, or spear or headdress. It's like saying an artifact from the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor where we were bombed. I'm shocked this hasn't been taken down yet. Dumb and dumber

The beginning of the Rich vs Poor has begun. First, people bitched about how much GM and UAW employees made. What happened? Many retired and now the new guys make $14 an hour with awful benefits if any. Then, once people like the Vindy's Bertram DeSouza saw that the negative press was working, they figured they would now target government employee with pensions (teachers, state and county employees). Now with those jobs facing changes to their pensions and pay who will be next on the chopping block? It's all a plan to dump all of the good jobs that we have and then privatize everything. It's amazing how stupid people are. Sadly, the USA is dying and Ohio has been dead. God help us. What kind of jobs will our kids have in 10, 15, or 20 years? Teachers will be paid $20,000 if they are lucky. I guess it's ok to pay our politicians and give them insurance benefits FOR LIFE even if they serve for a short time. Our budget is completely screwed because of all the millionaire teachers and state workers?!?!?!? That's the way the new regimes around the Country are acting. Step all over the middle class some more. I believe a revolution is coming and maybe even a civil war with the poor fighting the rich. Nobody sticks up for the little man anymore. God help us all!

Amen fellas! Best of luck to Kelly as he tries to reclaim his winning ways. How dare he golf and enjoy his life!!?!? There will always be losers in this area who root against locals who became successful. I'm sure Kelly doesn't read these comments but if so, don't listen to the haters Kelly. We support you!
As far as the boxing goes, I'm a little surprised that he's going to fight again at this weight but like it stated above, there just wasn't anyone big for him to fight. Chavez is an excellent fighter but if Kellie can maintain his strength and still make the 160 weight, I think Kelly will knock his head off. Just too much punching power and reach advantage vs. these light fighters.

You can single out nonproductive workers in any industry. Sure there were people at GM who sat around and did nothing, there are even pro athletes who do nothing and get paid a ton of money (Tim Couch). I'm just saying that the problem we have is always trying to put stereotypes on groups of workers. There are already changes coming in the pension systems to eliminate the 3% annual increase. Also, under the current system, you can retire with 30 years at any age. That is changing too so State workers will have to work even longer. The MAJORITY of State workers make amounts less than those in private companies. Work as an accountant for the State or something similar and you make significantly less than you would at a CPA firm or something like that. This is just one example.
It just seems like whenever somebody has a good life, we are always trying to take it away. We can't all have the same job, same pay, same benefits. That's life. GM was the first subject of everyone's wrath and now the State workers and teachers are getting hammered. Heck, let's complain about priests and how much money they make. It will never end.

Fact is, the majority of state workers are not paid high amounts such as the man stated in the story. In fact, most workers have taken pay CUTS over the last two years and will most likely NOT get that money back. This is typical of our area where if a few people are doing well, we must make sure that we report it and get mad at these people. How dare someone make a nice paycheck! Happened before with people bashing the GM workers and the money they made. Now look how they have been cut. I guess everyone won't be happy until we are all making the same amount of money and on an even playing field. Maybe the reporters who always bash these types of things should go find another job if they aren't happy with what they make rather than always ripping on others.

All of you who respond in anger to the Conservative moron USA1 are just giving him what he wants. He's a bitter old fool who knows that his party ruined America over the last 8 years and now because our President has a funny sounding name (which happens to match that of Sadam) he and other idiots insist that our President is a terrorist or that he isn't a US citizen. Just laugh at home people and don't respond to this jerk off. Keep spending at Wal Mart and bashing our local businesses. Opinions are like #@$@#$holes and you are an #$#$#hole. Have a nice day!

His fatness was so awesome and he was showboating in the ring. Very entertaining guy. Couldn't fight at all but it was amusing.

Amen Mikey Mike. Typical Youngstown haters who are just mad that they are unemployed and couldn't afford $50 to go to the fight, are jealous of Pavlik because he has done something with his life, etc. Go back to your make believe worlds with your fantasy football leagues since you are so much smarter than real life GMs and know more about sports than anyone. Enjoy your pathetic existence haters!!!!

Typical Youngstown haters. You people are just plain sad. Spreading rumors about Pavlik and his family. I guess you guys are all saints. Maybe you are all jealous because if it's true that Kelly is a drinker, he is still the Champ and a millionaire and you guys can't fathom why drunks like yourselves aren't as successful. Get a life and stop bashing him. Nobody said he was the greatest fighter in the world but he's pretty darn good and that is something for our area to be happy about.
To Kelly and his camp STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT THESE LOSERS ARE SAYING!!!!!!!!!!
