What kind of measures are these, if the superintendents and principals don't even understand the grading system? Districts that were formerly excellent with distinction getting F's, in one year? Something is very wrong. I salute all the teachers who show up every day and try to meet these "goals" while working with actual live children in the classroom. Thank you ALL for your persistence.

I can tell you from previous experience in other cities that this kind of business is incompatible with residential living downtown. Good luck, everyone!

As important as this finding is the headline made me laugh out loud. As far as I can observe childhood of any kind eventually does lead to death. We all die, right? Now "early" death? That's something else again. One word makes a big difference in meaning!

What a misleading article. This decision is not mandated by Obamacare! It is the university's decision not to provide enough hours to their adjunct faculty so they might get health coverage. YSU is by no means the only employer who will choose to do this, which is why there must be another way for these folks to be covered, and that is what Obamacare is trying to do. The adjunct faculty already works hard for very little pay, now they're getting double screwed. Please don't blame the government for that.

Is there anything wrong with the old code? Other than the fact that it hasn't been enforced since it was written?

They got stimulus money to come here and start the business. The business is successful enough, partly because of stimulus money, to expand. Therefore, stimulus money helped bring a successful business to the Valley. Isn't it good that it could afford to expand without more stimulus? That's how it's supposed to work.

I'd love to see more flights from Youngstown regional. But it would also be great to have Amtrak stop here again. I know business people like to fly but trains make sense too for ordinary people.
