Normac,My point was in regards to residents being able to protect themselves in their homes while the suspect was on the loose; irregardless of the "shelter in place" request.

The letter writer implies that the National Guard will be there to protect citizens, and that unneccessary weapons in the hands of citizens would create safety issues for the National Guard and other law enforcement.
Perhaps, but recall last Friday in Boston when citizens were told to lock their doors and stay inside while authorities searched for a terrorist who was believed to be armed with guns and explosives.
The authorities did a great job, but it took much of the day to find the suspect.
In the words of the letter writer, "consider" if you were a Boston resident that day and the terrorist came calling to your home.

John Zordich, you mention that the USPS expenses are "paid through the sales of stamps and services to America’s public"
Apparently you're too stupid to figure it out; the USPS is losing its revenue to pay for it's expenses due to technology...The USPS, like printed media, is becoming obsolete.
Want the USPS to stick around? Stop blaming other people (typical of organized labor) and lower expenses to match the volume of business/revenue the USPS receives.

Freeatlast, you apparently are one of those full of BS. The only requirement is that a student must live in Youngtown.
One of your typical comments trying to distort the truth - students are not hand-picked based on their background! Your effort to make it appear that this school picks the best students failed!

Freeatlast, aren't you one of the liberal whiners who say Charter schools don't work?

"The current contracts with the district’s two unions, the Niles Education Association and the Ohio Association of Public School Employees increased employee contributions to 6.9 percent of premium for a family plan and 8 percent for single coverage."
..."increase health care premiums paid by employees to 15 percent of costs to help the district save $1.3 million annually."
Imagine that...just like receiving a big raise over the years.

Too bad Timmy, you have nothing to do with the State of Ohio decisions.
If Kasich is for it, the liberal whiners like Freeatleast will post something useless...he/she would rather bring the State down to the pathetic level of the mahoning valley thinking.
