I give thanks every day for parents that raised us in a low/middle class loving atmosphere. We didn't have a lot of "extras" but we did have guidance/rules, love and a stable life (without drugs and crime). We were also expected to work hard and not expect anything to be given to us.
That being said, this child was failed by her birth family twice. She should have visited and been sent home with love and support. The scum who killed her should have been shot in the street as soon as he confessed.

If this was any of your daughters, you'd be at City Hall with a pitchfork and torch!

$39...1. Maybe you missed this sentence..."YSU is one of three state universities receiving a dog through federal grant-funding by the Ohio Department of Homeland Security." (aka...not YSU money. The officer was already there - the feds just added the dog).
2. YSU Police officers ARE real police officers...like legal and everything....you will go to jail if they arrest you just like if the city police arrest you.
I'll give you that a bomb sniffing dog probably wouldn't be used as much as a drug sniffing dog, but you can find a local agency with a drug dog pretty quickly. It's just another resource.

The budgets of two recruiting areas which start with "A" completely ignored...do some research and see what you find about the travel budget for Athletic recruiters, vs. the travel budget for Admission recruiters.

I said it a few days ago - how about offering an early retirement? There are a LOT of people who fall in the range.
Let's clear out some folks willing to go, instead of picking off people who just happen to fall at the bottom of the seniority list.
Out of the 15 people, I'll bet the total money saved doesn't average $40K apiece. That is a one time savings. The fat isn't in administrative support or faculty folks....
As far as people having to get a "real" job - that is an asinine statement.

How about offering an early retirement program allowing people to leave voluntarily first and see where that gets you before creating yet another upheaval with personnel.

I would have been fine with Dean Abraham as president, but if the committee thinks they can get Tressel, he and the Dean would make a nice Pres/Provost combination.

As a SOBER driver, there have been many times I've come up on people walking in the street - WITH TRAFFIC - that I've almost hit.
Walkers need to walk FACING oncoming traffic so they can see who is coming at them!

So terribly sad. May they both rest in peace. Condolences to their family.

People are CRAZY drivers on that highway. I avoid it wherever possible. A friend of ours has had a few near misses in the past few weeks while driving to work. Most recently a white car going 80 mph last night weaving that spun into the median and proceeded down the highway. 65 is way too fast on any portion of 680.
