Governor Kasich is doing a great job as Governor. After a miserable decade of failed leadership with Taft and Strickland, he has certainly turned our state's fortunes around.

Boardman Jeff, that makes absolutely no sense. Oh yeah, he donated $1000 to the Republicans in the 2008 Presidential Election. http://m.us.wsj.com/articles/SB100014...

"Allegiant is only the most recent in a (if I remember correctly) string of airlines that came in and later cancelled service."
What are you talking about? If you are going to come on here and argue against the service, at least come with facts.
What service has Allegiant cancelled? NONE. They have added three additional cities to the original destination of Orlando-Sanford Intl. Airport.

Nurse, we are a metropolitan area of over 600,000 people. To say nobody will use this service is laughable on your part. Time is money and the savings across the board by flying out of YNG will provide extra value to local businesses.
Additionally, you do realize Chicago O'Hare is the #2 airport in terms of passenger traffic in America, second only to Atlanta? Sure those two cities don't jump out at you as major destination cities, but they are the two largest airports in the US because of connecting traffic. You can connect virtually ANYWHERE in the world via Chicago O'Hare.
So before you come on here and whine like all of the other naysayers, I suggest you do some homework.
I recall back in 2005 when the local counties put up funding for a local match to bring Allegiant Air to our airport, there was quite the outrage. Nine years later, we are on pace for over 100,000 passengers with Allegiant. Back then the naysayers were far more vocal in their opposition to supporting this airport. However, now, as the airport continues to grow, you are seeing less and less of them.
Lose the doom and gloom attitude.

You folks do realize YNG had a $250,000 SCASD grant back in 2006 which they used to land Allegiant Air at YNG. Eight years and four destinations later, we are now on pace for 120,000 passengers at YNG, the most since 1998!

ParlayHenry, what makes you think that without athletics, we can become a "far superior academic institution?" The fact of the matter is Notre Dame, Stanford, Duke, every Ivy League school, etc. has DIVISION 1 college athletics. It further proves the point that great academic schools can have outstanding athletic programs. As far as I am concerned, athletics are a terrific marketing tool and the front-door to many universities.
Kudos to Ron Strollo for the amazing athletic facility improvements we have seen over the past decade. The WATTS, the new 5th Avenue Athletic Complex, and the numerous improvements to Stambaugh Stadium and Beeghly Center are to this man's credit and his vision. For the athletic budget we have, we get a lot of bang for our buck. Our companions in the MAC have athletic budgets 2-2.5x that of YSU, but our facilities are every bit as good as theirs!

Clearly your headline to this story is misleading and leads you to believe Dale impersonated Darrell. I recommend you change it because it is wrong.
Dale, the YSU football player, did not impersonate anyone.

TaxMe, Kent used a Colin Reardon TD pass late in the 4th quarter to squeak by FCS Liberty on Thursday 17-10. Kent had one great season in 20 years and they look to be back to their mediocre form.
