NoBS, it's been raining for 2 weeks now. There are safety factors involved with putting a 40k machine into a swamp. Then you'll have a huge mess. When the final grade is completed there will be wood and other debris mixed in to the topsoil. That will be a safety factor for years. The street will be covered in mud, everything will be a huge mess. Plus, once the debris gets wet, the weight increases and dump charges can go up 30%. The profit margin is so low for these contractors to begin with that all you need is a stuck or overturned machine to ruin your day.

Did anyone notice that in the Vindy today, a YPD officer has to appear in court to explain why there is missing paperwork relevent to a homicide case. His superior suggests that "human error" is the root cause. The article states that the officer could be held in contempt of court for not delivering the required interview pages. The penalty could include jail time and a fine.
It seems as though the officer's superiors are coming to his defense in that it was an oversight. Human error. But the penalty could be steep.
In Canfield's school system you have administrators literally stating to the Vindicator that they purposely failed to document issues to avoid any potential liabilty on the district. Could this documentation been used against the administration or district in any potential lawsuits?
No follow up articles from the Vindy. No investigation. No outrage. No comment from the board. Odd.
The employee, from previous articles was reluctant to offer full disclosure in regard to funds that were collected. No follow up article or questions from the Vindy. No comment or published information in regard to any district initiated investigation. No comment from the board. Odd.
The many articles written in regard to the incompetence that surrounds the Canfield School District leave any normal reader with the impression that this is somehow a secert society. Nepotism, secret handshakes, double dipping, blatent overspending, lack of any basic business acumen, abysmal decision making (see energy program), mistreatment of students and athletes, and vendettas against ANYONE who speaks out are all apparently excepted in this heavily guarded closed society.
No investigations, no statements from the board, no investigative reporting from the local news. Odd, very odd.
But when academic awards are handed out, acheived mainly due to the high percentage of educated, caring parents in the district that insist their children value education, the administration pats themselves on the back and takes credit. They must then gorge themselves on Twinkies and cakes and all the spoils of the riches they have reaped from others efforts while proclaiming their invincibility.
Odd, Very Odd.

An old, greying, white male wearing a BLACK and YELLOW jacket. Obviously at his wits end, no hope or promise of success. Warped morals, probably worships rapists and cheap shot artists that prey on defenseless normal people. Case solved. Just another pathetic Steeler fan.........

Admitting to dereliction of duties in regard to properly documenting administrative actions should initiate discipline on the offending parties. The board will once again fail to take action. As with the failure to supply full financial disclosure of the districts spending habits to the taxpayers, a pattern of colusion and corruption continues unchecked within the Canfield school district. Ensuring that a proper investigation is held by a third party that is not related to anyone that holds an administrative position is the responsibility of the board. They will continue to fail in their duties.If an insignificant issue with a coach is covered up, To what length is the administration willing to stoop to cover up any financial misdeeds in regard to the administrations spending habits?
The issue with the coach's inability, or refusal, to keep financial records of fundraising has seemed to disappear from the conversation. Time after time we read about people entrusted with non profit monies that are accused of "helping themselves" to the funds. Was there an investigation conducted by the administration? What was the outcome? Were all funds accounted for? Perhaps the relationship between the treasurer, whom I would assume would conduct the investigation, prevented an investigation entirely. Given the admision of the administration that they intentionally conceal wrongdoing, I would not be surprised if we never hear another word about the fundraising money.

Very poor judgement. Kids giving to kids. Children learning that no matter what you have or don't have you must help those less fortunate. I believe that a small percentage of the children involved in the project will benefit from the "silver spoon" senario. The rest will have learned a valuable lesson in regard to sharing and giving. If someday you need assistance, hopefully they'll be their for you in your old age. Maybe it will be their children who devote their time to sing for you at Christmas while you sit in the nursing home alone. Who did you help this Christmas?

OK, once again, I don't know anything about foosball. But I do know that this issue is just a continuation of fiscal mismanagement and culpability in regards to the administration's and BOE's actions.
From reading the above posts, it is apparent that there would be sufficient accusations that would justify a full investigation by the State of Ohio into possible fiscal mismanagement within the district.
Too many times, there have been accusations in regard to cover ups and lack of cooperation when spending habits of the administration, blessed by the lacky BOE, are brought into question.
The reason that so many are polarized against throwing good money after bad has been well documented and it has nothing to do with whether Jim or Judy got to play foosball enough for the parent's $200 contribution.
To those who want to blend this complaint with the current outrage against the administration and BOE, you are sadly beating down the wrong path.
The opponents to the levy ARE the 60% college graduates that live in the community that, by the way, can smell BS all the way from Poland.
To those that continue to say that the only, and most significant reason people move to Canfield is it's excellent school system, you are imbeciles. The main reason people aspire to live in Canfield or Poland is that they are the only communities that are deemed safe. They are the only communities in the poorest area of the nation that stand half a chance at property values holding. They are the only communities where someone that can afford to spend more than 300k for a home can actually buy a home. They are the only communities where strong willed, educated people can defeat ineffective school administrations and BOE's by not drinking the KoolAid served up by folks that main concerns are their own pocketbooks that feed off of the community through their innefective attempts at retaliating against the hand that feeds.
The system is broke due to fiscal mismanagement. The caretakers have destroyed the institution. Nero fiddles as Rome burns, and all of you are obsessed about retaining the pawns in the game. Go after the King and Queen and the game will be won. It's really quite sad if you take the time to think about why we are at this point.

Absolutely not. I will not vote no to purposely devalue my property nor yours. I am voting no to stop the decline in Canfield property values. The Canfield Police, Fire, and municipal services are second to none. They uphold our property values.
The school system administration and board are the glaring liabilities. I am voting no for change. I believe that eliminating the current administration and board will allow the community to grow.
I have taken a 60k hit in property value. Call it "Black Squirrel" disease. The school system is largely deemed as a failure due to incompetence.
Except for the current economic situation, the negative press and controversy surrounding the system administration the last year or so is the only negative aspect that would stifle growth or value in our community.
