Good to see a student's point of view on this. I agree with much of what you said. But something is wrong here. If this is the only point of contention as stated in the article, why on earth can't an agreement be reached?? Seems to me it is a no brainer. Must be a lot more to the story than is being portrayed here.

Agree with you Dave. The sandwiches I remember were terrific and tasted like the ones my mother would make from left over roast beef dinners. Now it's just that chopped and compressed stuff that tastes like nothing. Used to love Arby's but unfortunately quality has gone downhill. Can't stand to eat there anymore.

Good luck Jim. Time for some positive things to start happening at YSU.

Right on Walter. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm voting NO too. It seems they still didn't get the message. We need serious changes in the way the county commissioners have been operating. Until then, no more tax money.
My prayers to the family. Such a heartbreaking situation. This case needs to go to trial soon. This family needs justice.

Right on Knightcap. There is absolutely no reason these employees should not have to pay toward health care. Bad decisions over the years by these commissioners is no excuse to keep taxes going up just so you can maintain the status quo. I hope they got the message. We're tired of the same old excuses.

I believe in compensating public employees well for the services they perform and in the past I've voted for levies. But this is out of hand. Maybe the vindy will get answers to these some other questions. For instance, how did they suddenly have a big pile of money this year to give all these raises? And did they consider the implications of what they did? Now someone's salary is $20,000+ or more than it was last year. Doesn't that make all of your costs go up? Overtime? Sick leave/vacation payouts when the person leaves? Not to mention now their pensions are going to be based on much higher salaries, so they will be bringing home a lot more in retirement income for the rest of their lives, who pays for that?? I have supported levies in the past, but NO MORE. Not even the renewals.
