Curious as to why no discussion of the tax breaks afforded to Ohioans by kasich hasn't been mentioned here, along with all the job creation "he" is responsible for.
Ohio: one million workers earning $10/hr or less!

As far as oldster's question, dripping with sarcasm and the ugly sense of defeat so predominant in these parts, let me say this:
Businesses will succeed AND fail in downtown. People go there for work, business, and relaxation. It is a viable place.
The same can be said for start-ups in boardman/Canfield/Poland etc. Why so down on downtown, unless you're just some old stodgy lazy hopeless hater who hasn't had any real fun in his life in 40 years. Stay away from downtown, you might see or hear or meet someone interesting.

I visited Los gallos downtown 3 times.First, prior to a downtown sporting event last winter. As I entered three employees were at the entrance openly bickering about seating locations and table numbers. I sat at the bar for a full ten minutes, unattended, while 'employees' walked past. Someone eventually asked if I 'wanted something.'
Next was st patricks, and while waiting for a friend wandered in to a virtually empty Los gallos. I ordered an adult beverage and was mildly surprised that there was no holiday price attached to it...I was informed that just because other Los gallos locations had specials, that didn't mean that location did. Okay!
Finally a friend and I went downtown por cinco de mayo and were astonished to approach an empty fenced off area with a band preparing to perform. When we approached the entrance to the restaurant, we were asked for $5 cover. We said we wanted to eat in the restaurant, and were told that it was STILL $5. I said, that's okay we'll just go to Suzy's.
Los Gallis downtown = abject failure.

The real crises is the level of poverty in the city schools. The schools won't improve until the economic circumstances for the city's residents improve. Here's an idea Kasich- how about starting with increasing the minimum wage?

Let's start over. "Alcohol and clothes" but Gypsy Beverageand Family Dollar?"
Please don't tell me this man was buying 'clothes' at Family Dollar!

Here's a credible suspect profile:
1-no license2-provides a false name3-provides false SSN4-no baby seat5- suspended license
Anyone who wants social credibility and respect needs to stop toting their kids around in cars with drugs in them, and stop making up false identities, etc.

Well there a few ways to approach this dilemma. Vote in a Democrat for Governor for starters. Remember when Strickland froze tuition hikes at all public universities? Remember also how Kasich and the republicans have slashed funding for higher education? Furthermore, lower tuition, accept "C" students. Make career and degree counseling more attainable. Provide MANDATED support to struggling students. (Yes, hold their hands for a little while. Some kids need more time to focus and mature.) Trying to turn YSU into Harvard is ridiculous.

thanx. Captain, for that scintillating analysis. You managed to include racial and gender sterotyping, generalizing, and some serious grammatical errors, all in just a single sentence!
Hint: the collective of 'ourself's' is ourselves.- they just changed it.

Perhaps save our country can explain ,the difference between public and private.
wolfruns question is pertinent and en pointe. With the current leadership at mcp, no answer will be deemed necessary, or forthcoming.
