I was never a fan of Jim Traficant - but if anyone can recover from this, he can. Prayers and thoughts to Tish and Jim's family and friends.

And the good ol' boys network continues to flourish in the Mahoning Valley. Don't post the job or conduct a search - just give it to a buddy.

It's pretty clear that they are trying to make Hathorn's life miserable so he quits. I think it is time for Joffrey Jones to pay the board a visit and remind them that they are NOT in charge of the district.

Seriously? This is nothing more than a publicity stunt. To truly live on minimum wage they needed to put away anything they already had in the cupboards and refrigerator. Minimum wage was NEVER meant to be a living wage - rather was a way to start one's career path. Where does it end?

I don't envy him one bit. He will owe every single person who signed the original letter supporting his appointment as well as the unions who backed his candidacy. Getting a non-politically connected position at YSU will be impossible for at least the next five years or so.

Chris Sammarone lost because he ran negative campaign ads that were aimed more at criticizing Maruca than on what he would bring to the job. You heeded bad advice, Chris.

I think everyone should have to work for the assistance they receive.

I am not at all sure that the trustees were honest with Dunn about the state of the university he was about to inherit - thus it really isn't surprising that he was less than forthcoming with the board. It all works out.
