Of course you don't see REPUBLICANS at this all nighter,we all have to WORK! This is the point that needs to be put across and understood, the working man is tired of carrying those that feel they have nothing better to do than spend a camp out day for something that can be accomplished during normal hours for the next month. GET A JOB!This includes our congressional representatives that started this,. If they were doing their jobs of fixing our governmental problems instead of brainstorming ideas that caused getting eaten by mosquitoes, maybe this country would be in a better situation than it is!

Our government already has so much money flowing through the system, they cannot keep care where it is going and corruption in Gov. is everywhere. They state the money is going for needs of the people, except for the part of the NEW gov. bureaucracy set up to oversight. When was the last time the gov, had to use their system for nothing, there is always a service fee, which will also be added to the purchase price plus tax on out of state purchase. Ohio should not be able to force a company in Iowa(examp.) to help in the aid of a tax for Ohio. Get over it and start living within the OHIO budget and stop looking for more revenue to waste,,, unless OHIO wants to replace the OHIO income tax with this NEW income source, STOP TAKING TAX MONEY FROM THE PEOPLE and work with what you are already receiving.

For freedom and liberty for all, let's hope not, As the results have shown from the last election, the rest of Ohio population have more intelligence than the Mahoning valley area and voted Republican!!

Hmmm, let's talk retirement. He graduated in 72, that would make him approx. 58 / 59 yrs. old. While most of the working force continues on working until we are a minimum of 62, or as it is now, 66, and continue to pay taxes to support this early retirement. Ever wonder why the system needs more finances? The school system needed a new levy 2 years ago, and tried 3 times since then, the last newspaper report says the budget is only balanced until 2015, and a new levy has to be in place by then. What is wrong with this picture? Canfield has the largest new development housing projects in the county with new revenue, but always needs more money.

sounds like a speculation that he was texting, but lawn mowers are not driven on highways, ban mowing yards.

typical government, tax, tax , tax. an opportunity has come to make this valley become prosperous again with the input of natural gas development, and government officials want to see how they can get their hands on this money and as usual ,, waste it away with more expenses.Save the airport from federal cuts with a bed tax? I feel NOT! It is just a statement to feel as though they are doing something. Our gov. wants development? officials should be out actively seeking other airline carriers to come to YOUNGSTOWN with the increase of demand for travel, so all of Youngstown will prosper, instead of trying to take more money from those that use our facilities while passing through, and leave an effect in the long run with more transportation choices

Time that state officials stop treating the citizens of OHIO like they are children and own them. The only way the internet cafe strives is through participation of patrons. The state wants to regulate (meaning they want their money cut of the profits) and just where do they think this money comes from but other than those that have already paid the state when they earned the money. Regulation is nothing more than another state tax that induces government waste. Our attorney general by his statement of regulation,,,, is saying it is OK as long as the government gets money.

Why is it that each time I request information on the Canfield school system increase in tax revenue for the housing construction for the past 8 years ( Villa Rosa, Westford, multiple developments west of 46, $24m home on Tippecanoe ) all very expensive and high tax base, NO one wants to make reference to the amount of increase Canfield has already received. Zambrini has only made the statement that it is time for a tax increase.The statement that the school system has trimmed all of the fat from the expenses and cut to the core of academics, means the money is mismanaged and it is time to find a replacement for those in charge. Basic understanding should see that there is extensive spending without accountability when the statement 2 years ago that the school only had to spend $100,000 for the football stadium lighting,, there must have been some financial excess then that has not been consumed in the past year, where does all of this money go? STOP waste by NO more taxes and making districts spend within their revenue and NOT always spending to get more.

Follow the articles on this new levy, $3.8 million in increased revenue for the security in Boardman, and then you find out that half of that amount $1.7m is going to be deducted from the police allotment of the general budget and returned to the general fund. This is a typical government procedure to cry out a need for money, and then remove money from the original funding only to have a back door TAX approved not intended for the purpose the voters were informed.ANOTHER EX> : Ohio lottery money funds schools also, the citizens thought the schools were going to see an increase in revenue for the school systems,,, case in fact : all OHIO did was now give the lottery money to the schools as promised and remove the government subsidies that were funding the schools before the lottery, giving the politicians more money for their pet projects and studies that are a total waste of taxpayer dollars and the schools are still underfunded. and need more money, STOP this government waste and lying,,, vote NO,,, as the police are funded now, a new tax for security forces should all go to the police and the 3.8millage would only need to be half or less,,,, time to stop government wasteful spending.
