The Youngstown City Schools should be disbanded, and those few still-attending students should be absorbed into adjoining districts.

I can't even start to believe that any 'poster' would have a negative vibe for this lucky dude! He won some cash! Good for him.
FYI- the lottery is a 'voluntary tax,' I.e. unlike most other government stuff, no one is forced to participate or pay.
Don't cry about others' good luck. Have a great day, or even WEEK, sir!

Slaughtering these animals is a total over reaction to the problem.
This behavior on behalf of the park board and odnr is atrocious.
The first poster was EXAcCTLY right, extreme right no doubt. People might have shown up who would've demanded alternative strategies to this form of wildlife 'management.'
A management strategy which focuses on the slaughter of GOSLINGS in particular is short-sighted and stupid.

This gent has a choice at this juncture- he can step back and evaluate his conduct (and the behaviors that caused it ) and strive for some improvement (read:self discipline) or he can become bitter and defensive, and spiral downward into increased police contact.
As a community, let's hope he evaluates positively and starts to improve his attitudes and his life.

Athletics at YSU has long been something of a soft touch for those who care on those who don't. Undergrads shouldn't have to pay five cents toward athletics at the university level. The practice is probably illegal.
Ysu has been administratively top-heavy for generations, while using high school teachers to deal with night students and non-traditionals! So-called adjunct faculty have been helping to keep costs down since the Viet Nam era.
The same people who like this arrangement have begun to complain about egcc's presence, since egcc actually WANTS under achievers and works with these kids appropriately.
Ysu is a nearly prefect reflection of the community it serves; bloated, pretentious, and archaic; luckily new leadership has arrived to help persuade an unusually gullible public that athletics and phony ad campaigns actually help to provide for a better education!

"Another section of the bill requires the governor to form a work group to “develop proposals to help individuals cease relying on public assistance.”
Here's one proposal: Raise the Minimum Wage to at least keep pace with inflation.
Here's another: Elect Fitzgerald Governor!

The level of poverty in the city schools is why administrators are not having success. Aleviate poverty and you improve the schools. It is as simple as that, however making that happen is obviously not so simple or easy. In the meantime, reforms like preKindergarten, strong arts programs, summer school, reading readiness, etc, etc. must/should be implemented. I'm not sure paying any one person $100,000 will have any effect.

Just what I want to see when I go downtown-all those awesome parking lots! When it comes to tearing something down, they waste no time. Not so when someone tries to secure financing to go forward with a project that will enhance the downtown and transform a current eyesore. Who are these people?
