Consolidate school districts and public services NOW!
It is such an easy solution, it's a no-brainer actually.
If a candidate for Mahoning county trustee would back their whole election on this one idea only, they should win election easily.

To quote the legendary Falconeddy
Mr. Betras, wake up and smell the hummus!
I think it was Eddy that came up with that one.
Consolidation WILL work. That is what happens when there is shrinking population.

Wind power is laughable. Compare the costs to the savings and it's like buying one of those new semi-electric (and that is the key word isn't it) cars to deliver us from the evil that is carbon consumption.
Yeah, if you keep it for 25 years and never need maintenance or repairs, it'll save you about $300 per month.

Good for Tayala. He didn't even make first team on his all-conference team, which I thought was a travesty.
Jenkins and the other UHS kid got screwed with the honorable mention.

Unfrozen caveman lawyer----Priceless!
"your legal system frightens me".
Levies make it so easy for administrators to meet their budgets without any work by them to address areas where money can be saved. It is interesting that one never hears of administrators getting cut, or their clerical help's hours reduced. Isn't it?
Anybody that comes up with a realistic consolidation of school districts has my vote.

Why can this not be done? Especially when there was so much money in the Fed for new school buildings?

This can happen to self-employed people if you aren't making quarterly payments of the correct amount.
Once you have jobs where your employer witholds and pays the taxes though it should never be a problem.
When he was self-employed he was responsible for the entire SS tax, so I could see where that could happen.
Since the IRS has liened the house, and he has set up a payment plan, I certainly wouldn't call him a tax cheat.

all good points you raise, well almost all.
So I'm gonna be generous and give you 1 billion in savings from what you suggested.
7.0 to go.

@FD and other critics including Dem lawmakers in Columbus:
Still waiting for your
"Solutions to solve the 8bil dollar deficit"
Please post your ideas. Here, based on your mindset I will start it for you:
1. Raise taxes on the rich.
OK please continue.

How about editing your comments to include ALL lawmakers in Columbus.

First let me comment briefly on FD's (the CAPS GUY) post #21
Sir could you please not use the term tea-b#gg#rs.
I find that offensive and an insult to my intelligence.
Would you please give your solution to cutting/raising 8 billion dollars to balance the budget as is required by law.
Enough with the wall-street and crony references. stop with the Democrat Party talking points.
What Kasich did with Lehman Bros. has absolutely no bearing on what he is doing now.
BTW do you know what the Tea Party's agenda is FD?
It is to Control Government Spending and Lower Taxes, and shrink the size and scope of Govt.It is more in line with Libertarian thinking than Republican.
Are you against those 3 concepts?
I am NOT (caps just for you FD) at TEA party member. I am a conservative. If a Democrat can govern/legislate in line with my values, I will vote for him/her.
