No, lying to the NCAA was his downfall.
I would prefer to have a university president who has a PhD and experience running a university. Do an internet search on when Mike Garrison was selected President of West Virginia University and see how that works out. Garrison was Chief of Staff for then-Governor, now Senator Joe Manchin.

The reason Kasich wasn't even mentioned by anyone as a possible VP candidate is because he is toxic. Kasich is a national laughingstock. All you need to do is watch his State of the State speech to see why. That's the danger of not having a TelePrompTer, which the people running the show in Tampa at the Republican National Convention will sure have for him. Either that or written notes, which will be reviewed and rewritten.
Kasich balanced the budget (which Strickland also did because it is REQUIRED by the Ohio Constitution) by slashing funding to all levels of local governments. He just redistributed the wealth. This is why the local governments are putting levies on the ballots, to make up for the shortfall.
Yes, Ohioans were so sick of Strickland that they elected Kasich by a landslide-49.04% to 47.04%.
I'm sure there are a lot more people who have voter's remorse for electing Kasich. In two years we'll see if he's a one or two termer. A betting person would bet one.

Why not a casino for Y'Town? Maybe because the law doesn't allow for it.

Wow, $50 per year for each year of longevity. How many faculty members have been there 30 years, like Mr. deSouza's example? I'll bet there are very few.
If you're using this as an example of the government's largesse, it's a poor example.

I'm not condoning this person's behavior, but your odds of being involved in a fatality involving a sober driver are greater than involving an alcohol-impaired driver.

Subject to Debate - Policy Matters Ohio Executive Director Amy Hanauer and the director of the conservative Buckeye Institute discuss public and private sector compensation in this week's episode of The State of Ohio public television show. The takeaway message? Public employees are paid less than workers in the private sector with similar education levels.
See the report here:

It's tragic when someone is injured or killed by an impaired driver. But there is less concern (because there's no demon rum to blame) when 70% of fatalities involving motor vehicles involve stone cold sober people who apparently are poor drivers. And the 30% of alcohol-related deaths is probably higher that it actually is due to the methodology used to determine what is "alcohol-related." This information is from the Ohio Department of Public Safety website.

While it is true that the ECHL has had many teams fold, it is the preeminent minor hockey league below the American Hockey League, in essences, the "AA" level to compare with minor league baseball. There is much more stability in the ECHL overall than any other league.
They have solid working affiliations with AHL teams, as well as NHL teams. That simply was not the case with any of the other minor leagues (CHL, UHL, SPHL, etc.).
The level of play was higher than that of the CHL, the league the Steelhounds belonged to. Many more players have gone on the NHL from the ECHL than any other low minor league.
There are several teams in close proximity to Youngstown to create rivalries and manage travel costs (Toledo, Wheeling, Johnstown).
For hockey fans wanting to watch the best level of hockey that Youngstown will ever get, it would be the ECHL. Watching USHL games is akin to watching something above the high school level but below the Canadian junior leagues (OHL, QMJHL, WHL) and college hockey.
As a paying hockey fan, I have little or no interest in paying to see this level of hockey at any price.

I agree with Erplane to some extent. I was forced to move to Columbus from Pittsburgh against my will. Columbus is generic.
Most of northeast Ohio has migrated to Central Ohio. That's why 71 had to be expanded to three lanes, so all the former NEO folks can go visit home for the holidays.
I went to school in Columbus. It's better than it used to be, but much more inferior than Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, two other cities I've lived in.

Foxtrot, 'irregardless' isn't really a word.
