If we borrowed money and put ourselves in debt. Then why not our local authorities put it to use in their departments. If you don't break the law you don't have to worry about them using it on you...

...and Slocum gets new cabinets to the tune of $20,000.00. They need to rein in athletics. The spending there is out of control! Hell, back in the early 80's they cut the budget to the point where athletes were not awarded letterman jackets.

You need an additional 2.7 million to compensate for lack of Fed and State funding? Wow! If I lived in Mahoning Co. that for sure would be a check beside the No button!

State Atty. General Mike DeWine and his hand picked attorneys didn't proofread the indictment? Incompetence at all levels of government...

Next time the Park Board should contact the local Chinese restaurants and have them round up the geese. Though goose can be a bit greasy. A little soy sauce and ginger will fix that!

Layoffs are needed but most of the layoffs will come at the expense of the most recently hired employees. Time to put in a years of service or age limit with employees. It's been 30 yrs. since graduating from YSU and when I return for alumni functions I see the same old faces that were there when I was a student. Retire already. You should have enough stashed away to survive the remainder of your life plus you will be getting a nice retirement from PERS or STRS.

I've come to the conclusion that the appointed members of the Board of Trustees have been given a directive from the State to do what they can to destroy the University status of Youngstown State and have it become a local Community College. One of the finalist is the Director of Space Life for NASA?!!! To coin a Jim Traficant phrase, "beam me up Scotty"is all that needs to be said...

Abraham was finalist for provost at Northern Illinois. Though it would be wise to try and keep him here in that same position(provost). Offer Tress the president now. Let him decide whether he stays at Akron or accepts YSU

nsoger is correct. That stretch of McCartney Rd. (422) is horrific. Don't even think of being in left lane as cross over Lincoln Park bridge. Road is completely disintegrated.
