"...passed a resolution recommending that the search committee for the new president include more faculty. Specifically, they want the panel to include a faculty representative from each college,' Because no one is worth their salt unless they hold a Doctorate..like Dr.Warren Buffet,Dr.Bill Gates,,Dr.Steve Jobs and Dr.Cynthia Anderson who stayed there just long enough to pad her pension and leave.Did I mention Dr.Aristotle or Dr Plato?

Dr Gordon Gee spent about 7million-dollars in one year traveling,schmoozing,wining and dining with potential donors to his university.He raised nearly 1.6 billion -dollars for OSU from 2007 to 2011.That is the most important function of the university president.Gee was was an easily-recognizable personality.He made a big mistake,was ousted and now is the president at Western Virginia University doing the same great job for them. Tressel is also easily-recognizable and is still beloved by many OSU students and alumni.He would put a positive face on YSU and potential donors will know him from across any crowded room without introduction.I would bet that Gov Kasich might recognize the man as well with our without a sweater vest on.I agree with Tim Ryan and The YSU Foundation.Should he accept,Tressel is the man for the job.OR they can interview a whole slew of faceless applicants with their own puffed-up degrees who would merely be using the position as a stepping stone to another well-paying position somewhere else.

The natural gas from fracking IS driving down prices for consumers- in ASIA. "Sold" to the highest bidder NOT to the "less fortunate".

Can anyone tell us just how many administrative positions there are now compared to a few years ago? I once heard that there are 150 now VS just 75 a few years back.At any rate,this seems like a good place to begin pruning.

Is there no honor amoung thieves?Were the trustees truly "blindsided"? Can anyone's research verify that Dr Dunn did in fact say that he hoped to "hit the ground running" here? If so, his mission was accomplished. Cannot wait to hear his stirring speach durng spring commencements!

"It was the best of times,it was the worst of times".The best because there are so many positive things to be printed that can lift this city and its people up.The worst because de Souza can only focus on some narrow dark alley in all of his rants which helps no one but himself and his bank account."de" as in desperate for subject matter.

A plant that put food on the table for many families in the valley.Families that spent expendable income at shops,restaurants,theaters,home improvement stores, athletic events and gave to the less fortunate ... not to mention the taxes that are gone for roads,schools,etc. It wasn't political.It wasn't the unions it was GREED on the part of a mega-international company.This company could have refurbished the old G.E plant to make the new bulbs.It would have championed the case for keeping American jobs here and they chose not to. Had it been a purely union-based reason, they could have relocated to any other state where there are no unions.This was plain and simple greed from the word "go".Anyone who says otherwise is grinding an axe for their own agenda.

The Robertson clan took a great gamble in alienating all the gay duck hunters who buy their best selling "yoohoo,over here, fella" duck call. They were rich before the show and will remain rich.The shale proponents are usually land owners who made a lot of money off the leases and are now trying to rationalize it for the rest of us.The racino is neither here nor there.I see over 30 lottery games for sale every time I go inside to pay for my gas.There is no difference to me.None.If people want to gamble their money away,its their money to do what they please with.

Why so close to the Covelli? Couldn't there arise scheduling conflicts with parking spaces and security? Nice idea if they build it somewhere else in the city as long as the same acts appearing 20 minutes away in Warren are not the ones booked for it.Why not showcase talent from the Dana School of Music on Friday nights to help bring people in and link YSU with downtown futher?It would give the students a place to play.
