No means no! This issue should be dead, The voters clearly told them to renovate Fitch and give on building a new high school yet fixing Fitch is not even option that is on the table?!> The board mist be morons How do they expect to get the money, the sate will not give them the money, they can not take out a loan and the tax payers will never agree to give them $77 million if they are not willing to give them $31 Million. Only way they can get what they want is force us t give it to them to complete Vince's grand scheme. Time to vote all these idiots off the board since they clearly do not get it and think they can do whatever they want.

Vince is the bully here. He has to go. regardless of what some may think or want to Porter is being called a bad guy ad bully by most of the board and Vince who do nothing but lie and bicher and do little to nothing to protect our kids or even do their job. They all have to go except for Porter and the 2 newly elected board members and fast as this sideshow will only get worse. Do not believe a word Vince says as he is just like Obama a big fat liar who has doe nothing except bring our school system down and make it look bad.

Something tells me someone brought up the conflict of interest. This was done very suddenly and no one saw it coming. That in itself should make you wonder what is going on and who 9s getting kickbacks from the industry. The Chamber of Commerence, Comissioners, Betras are all in on it and they are not supporting fracking because they think it is good for the area alone, follow the money trail and a huge scandal may just pop up I think.

Good. This coalition is most likely funded by the shale gas industry and is a bully with guts like Dave Betras behind a lot of it. They note a conflict of interest which might mean they are on the Board of Elections and also getting money form the industry. Why fight it at all if it can not be enforced and why challenge if it is legal the second time and not the first? This argument is weak and actually makes them look bad and desperate.

This should have been in the news but it never has been on tv around here or in the newspaper. Wonder why that is? Since it goes against the bs of how good shale gas drilling could be for our area perhaps. This should be a big story since it shows how low these companies will go to try to slience critics.

It would or could work if people knew how to drive. People always cut you off and change lanes which leads to accidents and backups. This will not get better this school year or the next. It the real reason traffic in Boardman is so bad, adding lanes and lights is a waste of time and money since people care less about traffic laws and are in a rush to go nowhere. This will end up being a mess and there is no easy fix except to start taking peoples licenses away for not falling the law of the road instead of just fining them and giving them a ticket.

The real unemployment rate is much higher. For those over 16 only around 58% are employed. That means the real unemployment rate is closer to 50%. These official numbers mean nothing and are lies meant to make the government look good, the reality is we as a country are going broke and the poor are getting poorer.

It also exsists so the few can take what they want by force. If they gave you a fair deal to begin with and did try to be greedy and rip you off they would not have to take it from your land from you and give you nothing. It is a strongarm tactic nothing more.

I still think something else occurred as well. They really do not know and just said what was easiest to blame it on. Would love to see results for tests to see what chemicals are in the water which is what I think caused this but I doubt we will ever really know.

Yeah something fishy went on and whatever happened it was sudden and quick because when I was there at 3 I saw no Koi at all and like you only a turtle or two. Also the geese did not seem to want to be in the water for very long as well. For those fish to die in mass and at once tells me it was not just a lack of oxygen or they would die over a period of time since seem species can surive in low oxygen like catfish and if they die the water is real bad. Carp can live in just about anything as well and if they died this is very bad. They thrive in muddy calm water so they would not die. I did not see any alive or dead but anytime I go I always see a few and yesterday not one. I saw nothing alive in the water in fact so the park is lying if they say they did and even if they did there should be more then a few fish swimming around.
