Why can't we borrow money to repave our crumbling roads and streets and renovate our decaying infrastructure?

If the Board ever caves in and fires Young, future EDs (that's Executive Director) will serve at the pleasure of a mob. Please, mob, get out of the way and let Mr. Young do his job. Hiring and firing are part of his job description. And how about the women in her bra. What's up with that?

Congratulations, Jeff for exercising your civic duties responsibly. The Poland school superintendent and the Board should be ashamed of themselves for their cowardly behavior. You stood up to the Powers, and you made them look foolish. I think you have a great future.

What will the Board's role be after the state takes over? My guess is it will be to sit on the sidelines and criticize the new CEO and his policies at every turn. The Board of Education is superfluous. It is a toothless tiger and an embarrassment. But how do we get rid of them?

So, we end up paying for his appeal because he was too dumb to take the deal and then doubled down by representing himself at his trial.

"L'etat, c'est moi" should be translated as "I am the state," not "the state, it is me."

Yes, sad but inevitable. I don't see how the bishop can sell the values of Catholic education anymore when the Catholic schools are atrophying at an alarming rate. St. Christine, St. Charles, and Holy Family will hang on for a while. But the end is in sight for them too. It's only a matter of time.

"What has been will be again....there is nothing new under the sun." The name Boardman Glenwood Junior High is not a new name. This was the same moniker used back in the 50s when the school was built.And doesn't "intermediate School" mean the same as "Middle School." Aren't these names interchangeable? So, Boardman, what's new and innovative about these new "changes?"

Where was the outcry from the concerned citizens when the Board appointed the golfer ED, a man totally unfit for the job, by training, education, and experience?Did they think a golfer would have. interests beyond the golf course? Mr. Young has the credentials for the job. The concerned citizens are fighting a loosing battle if they think they are going to get the current ED fired and the levy repealed. The Concerned Citizens have too much time on their hands. They need to direct their effort to achievable goals and stop tilting at windmills. (ED stands for Executive Director, not, well you know.)

I don't know what these people want from the superintendent. The levy passed and now he's trimming the fat and streamlining the park's operations. Isn't that what we all want in a manager of public property? Change is always difficult for those who cannot or won't change. I say kudos to Mr. Young for being a leader and not merely a custodian of the way things have always been. After all, he had to clean up after several years of the golfer's mismanagement. These so-called concerned citizens should go home to their families and let Mr. Young do the job we are paying him for.
