Medicare was enacted in 1965--50 years ago.....
Republicans have held the Presidency (Nixon-Ford; Reagan, Bush (the elder); and, Bush (the ???) for 28 of those 50 years.....
Medicare still goes on.....the way to have it continue is to elect Republicans as Presidents.....

The Ohio State University should be #1 in this report......
They seem to have no trouble getting #1 in football.......

YSU's ranking is better than Ohio State's.....
Consider all the $$$ that is dumped by the legislature on THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY and all it gets is a few spots above YSU.....
C'mon now.....we should be very proud of YSU's history and impact.....

Leave it to a "conservative republican governor" to use a "big government" approach to solve a problem.

Any move by the legislature that guts the current locally elected BOE structure is worth implementing. The concept of a popularly elected BOE being competent to administer local schools is passé. "Local Control" is a form of political "Staph Infection!"

Mr. Tressel's vision is very clear---1) increase enrollment; and, 2) eliminate the deficit.....no extraordinary "statement of vision" is needed.....what is needed is more intelligence on the part of the Vindicator staff that writes such drivel.....
No confidence votes are irrelevant. The classified and faculty personnel would be better off answering this question--"How badly do I need my job and what must I sacrifice to keep it."

Cincinnati unemployment rate not much better than Youngstown.....
Another "republican" who thinks grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

I am sure that democrats in the Cincinnati area feel the same way about their local papers and their coverage which is heavily supportive of republican office holders.
It always comes down to whose ox is being gored.

"They have been marginalized by the Youngstown City School District Academic Distress Commission,...."
For all intents and purposes, the current BOE for Youngstown is irrelevant.
The power to regulate public education rests with the OH legislature.
The Republicans there need to have the backbone to abolish the Youngstown City Schools and its BOE; nullify current contractual understandings; and, assign current pupils to area schools.
Unfortunately that will not happen.
