Suggestions for Youngstown schools:1) abolish the locally elected BOE; and,2) send the current students to Poland, Boardman, Canfield and Austintown.

Wow! The "Vindy" actually believes that it is the standard by which political candidates are worthy......does it really think it has influence over the voter? Such arrogance!

For those upset by "corruption" in our local public officials, I suggest that they all take out candidate petitions for the next sequence of local elections.....think about it!.....we could have hundreds of potential candidates who would dilute the power base of the democrats and maybe, just maybe, we might get suitable office holders.....
All it would take is the right number of signatures and a couple of bucks for filing--no campaign--just get the name of the ballot and let nature take its course......

Nothing new in CC proposal to consolidate school districts....
OH did it back in 1910 with centralization of "one room" schools by establishing county offices of education (history note--Jerome Hull, founder of Whitehouse business was the first Mahoning County Schools Supt).....
suggest revisiting that period of education and re-implementing some of its core ideas.....

year 5 Heacock compared to Wolford
Heacock--8 wins, 3 losses; 5-2 in the conference; finished in 3 way tie and won "coach of the year" title....
Wolford has a lot of uphill paddling to do.....

Standard behavior by Senators and Representatives--criticize, yak, offer no suggestions....
President Obama should ask for a joint congressional session so that he can recommend:1) an ongoing, continuing declaration of war against worldwide terrorism to be pursued by the USA with or without support from other nations;2) a separate table of taxation besides the current tax system that will be directed to funding the war on worldwide terrorism; and, 3) reinstitution of a uniform, gender-neutral draft of all 18-21 year olds.
It would be interesting to see how the extreme "loonies" of the right and the left wings, and the "presidential wannabes" respond.

The era of Tiger is over in terms of his dominance by winning. Rory has failed to match Tiger's record between the ages of 21 and 25. He will not match Tiger's record in terms of wins and dominance in the next 13 years when he will reach the age of 38. It is predicted here that Rory will not amass 14 majors too.
Tiger will dominate merely by showing up and winning from time to time. Otherwise look for falling TV ratings for the young baby tigers of today.
