Congratulations to the entire Boardman Cross Country Team, both boys & girls. Outstanding job! Many of the Boardman runners set new personal best records yesterday and here's a shout out to all of them!

Agree with Kaufman: "In this business, either you learn and grow or you die." They may never get the White House back if they don't change with the times. Romney didn't learn from this by his recent comments to his donors by speaking about the "gifts" received by the young and women. His 47% comments were his true feeling of the middle class. This is what the Republican party needs to address.

So disrespectful and nonpatriotic. The people who want to secede are thankless takers. My grandfather and many other veterans fought to preserve the freedom we all enjoy and take for granted, especially freedom of speech, thus their petition. I agree that they can all leave after they pay their fair share of the national debt. Good riddance to a bunch of cry babies who didn't get their way.

What a horrible tragedy! I can't believe that the driver of the float ignored the blaring train horn and the flashing lights as the gates were closing!! This was so preventable. My thoughts and prayers go to the families. Such a sad, tragic story.

Yes, commoncitizen, sarcasm it is!

Really? What was "supposed" to happen was that when Sliwinski Sr. identified himself as another officer, the Boardman officer was supposed to just "let it go". The son was supposed to "get the pass". If that had happened none of this other nonsense would be happening.

All remaining employees at this system have sacrificed tremendously. Wage freezes, give backs and take aways, it is just beyond reason that they want more. The only thing the hospital system will be satisfied with is having an all per diem staff. Then they will not have to offer any benefits and can flex to their hearts content. The only problem with that is, most people aren't interested in working like that. Most people have families, mortgages, etc. and need their full-time jobs to support themselves and their families. If this company is hurting that bad, just like the former owner, than maybe they should have thought twice about buying the place.

The only employees this company seems to value are the administrative staff. The staffing is so low not only in nursing but in the ancillary areas as well. You walk through the halls as if you are the only person there. The halls are so empty. The cafeteria is empty. Where did everyone go? They have been laid off. The nurses on the floor are expected to do it all. That is the trend, multi-tasking, but that can lead to mistakes which will affect the bottom line. If the census goes up too high, it could be bad. It is not safe!

Why did the semi driver cross the median? What was he doing? I agree with those who avoid this road. There are too many semis on the road and most seem to be careless. We were on a trip to Virginia when my kids were little and sandwiched between 2 semis. The one behind wanted us to move over and kept coming up real close and backing off and even tried to ram us. We were boxed in with cars on either side and couldn't move. I was so scared. My husband was driving and I called the Virginia State Police and reported the driver. The police came right away because I was giving mile marker locations as we drove by them. 3 state trooper vehicles appeared and the driver got off the freeway at the exit. I don't know if he was caught, but he definitely should never have been driving. I think they should all have to take psych evals in addition to skills tests, before driving over the road. My prayers are with Mr. Lucarell and his family.

Before they try the levy, they need to look at making some cuts. Painful as it is, it is the reality. Pay freeze, increase in health insurance premiums, freeze in pension contributions or switch to a 401k. This has been done in the private sector. It is time for the school system to do what is in the best interest of the students. Hopefully, they will not have to cut services or staff. The Boardman community has usually supported levy's but they need to be careful and not depend on it. They need to try a more creative route first.
