Really Mr. Small change ? You would be hard pressed to find a better business Do'er than Mr. Covelli and the delicate issue of pipeline right of way important to Mr. Kringle will be well served by Mr. Detec in keeping within the legal boundaries; a matter that caused real concerns when first broached. As for the loose cannon - he is what he is.

Unfortunately, no one bothered to look into the numerous published studies on high school drug testing; all of which demonstrate absolutely no long term changes in risky behaviors, a return to baseline after the sport season, and, worse, an actual INCREASE in at risk behaviors by those students who had a foot in each world but now pushed away from one due the testing program. Money should have been spent more wisely on education. A complete waste of money - but god for the out od state testing company who polishes this turd for well meaning parents

Gee thanks GPS, that was really uninformative. How's the food ?

Loney ought to have the team in North Pittsburgh in 2-3 years I figure and Bruce can get that money drain off the books here.

At what point will the fact that it's a state, not city issue sink in ? Talk about tedious people... Maybe they should Birkenstock off to Columbus instead ?

Open voting; i.e. open to intimidation and humiliation, even retribution, seems about as Undemocratic a process imaginable. About par for the course of keeping the minions in line I guess.

Excellent News !
Jim is uniquely qualified for a unique opportunity in Youngtown where he has the solid backing of a the emerging heavy weights of the business community; i.e. manufacturing, AND the very wealthy.
This means great potential to fund the important growth and developement YSUs STEM college and partner and THAT will attract good quality students.
YSU is at a very interesting juncture given the Additive manufacturing initiatives, the local leadership of this nationally important technology, the recent influx of money at unprecedented levels due to shale gas and oil and now, in my opinion and obviously some very smart guys who are the YSU BODs, the one uniquely qualified individual who can paulo all of it together under the colleges umbrella.
Next step is to hire a very good provost with deep interest in all the above. Very good news indeed.

Really Abe ? I'm now waiting for you to enlighten us all on what a PhD has to do with the role a University President has to fulfill in these present times. Frankly, most of the faculty I've asked, quite a few, support the basis of the argument of why Tressel would be valuable for YSU even if they would not support his presidency at other institutions, Akron excepted for the same reasons. These two universities are likely the only two in the nation where he would be the best candidate, and not for lack of strong applicants from academe.
You DO know he and Ellen have recently built a beautiful new home in Medina though don't you. If it was me and offered I'd take the Akron job.
