Walter is correct. Leave it to him to tell it like it is. Great job.
SAVEOURCOUNTRY, the spending on pupils in the Youngstown school system is one of the highest in the state and yet the results are embarrassingly poor. Maybe hiring a teacher for each student is your answer? Who will pay for it?

faith, the health care law hasn't even been implemented yet except for very few portions of it. Most of the law goes into effect in 2014. It will cause large increases in insurance cost not decreases as it was sold.
Most studies indicate class size has very little to do with learning. Do you really think that a class size going from 25 to 30 makes that much difference?

What a bunch of BS above. It's been 20 years since JT was coach, I suppose the shadow is a bit less than under Heacock. Mr Dynamic, Wolford was sold to the faithful only because he was an Ursuline grad with zero head coaching experience. These are now his kids and they aren't performing to expectations. Either he's a bad coach or a bad recruiter or both.

William Swinger is right, SB5 must be upheld or the public sector will continue to rape and pillage the taxpayers, their bosses.
Time for them to face the same pressures on health care and pensions that the private sector has been feeling for decades.

This is why SB5 must remain in effect. The public sector is totally out of control and out of touch with reality. How can anyone say these perks are reasonable without laughing?

I especially like how the value of your home might decline yet the property tax stay the same or even increase. That's the scam of property taxes. The tax man always gets his.

Any entity that uses public monies should actually pay less than private ones. Maybe the YSU faculty would prefer to compare their salaries to MIT, Stanford, and Yale?

The money is gone. You can't keep taking from the tax payers who are experiencing increasing health care out of pocket costs and reduced pensions and giving it to the public sector in the form of better health care and pensions along with wages better than the private sector. Eventually the tax payers revolt. (TEA party)

grand4dad, the top 10% of earners pay over 70% of the federal taxes. How much more would you want them to pay, 100%?
