Oh my, barstoolie is sitting in his own stoolie. A professor makes a typo and barstoolie shats himself and whines and cries over it, claiming it's an international incident. What a disgrace. Talk about 2nd rate anything--you're a 5th rate person. Your child couldn't even succeed at YSU, that place of such disrepute you claim it to be. Go away, and bury yourself in your own feces.

barstoolie must spend a lot of times on bar stools. Fired for a typo in a letter to the editor of a small town newspaper? You're crazy and I see that your education didn't "take" very well. A lot of times students who remain ignorant want to blame their ignorance on their teachers, instead of looking in the mirror and facing the fact that they're maybe just incredibly stupid and can't learn anything because of that.

You might want to fact check that statement about Tressel being prohibited by state law from contract talks...

People who take pleasure in the difficulties of an institute of higher learning and the people who make such an institute run are generally uneducated themselves.

steivo, just giving more evidence regarding how much you assume all kinds of things without knowing anything at all.

steivo = idiot who does not know his state's local governmental history, but has lots of feelings about it all anyway.

Um, if people want YSU to freeze tuition, then they need to vote out Kasich in November. He is the person who has defunded education year after year in Ohio. He is the reason why YSU has a deficit this large. Someone further up in the comments says that the university is funded by the state. They are wrong. The state barely funds 20% of the budget at this point, and not four years ago, it funded 80%. Do the math, idiots. Your conservative governor SUCKS.
And the employees of YSU, as well as the students (by way of rising tuition to cover the loss of state funding), all pay for it in the end.
Your governor is robbing the state blind.
And you all think it's some employees. Your brain is made for analysis. USE IT.

Mick, really, me wake up? Just read this story reported elsewhere and you wake up, darling.
You can call me negative and say people like me are the reason why others leave the valley. But I've already left the valley, and it's people like you who inspired me to leave. Silly little know nothings.

Sounds like mostly what you're calling "tourism" here are relatives coming in to see family and be at family events, and outside of that, construction workers and fracking workers coming in to do work, which they will then leave when it's done. Nice cheerleader-y piece, but doesn't seem like anything more than a blip in the time scale, unless more permanent attractions are erected to maintain outsiders coming in. The racino will mainly cater to locals who were going to Mountaineer, which is fine enough to keep the money in the region, but won't be attracting many outsiders.
