There must be some new "nieces and nephews" that need jobs at the county. It would be best to split the renewal and new tax because I am unlikely to vote for any increases.

Boardman68,No doubt that there are young girls in high school that will throw themselves at the male teachers. But, that still doesn't make what he did correct. He is supposed to be the adult, he is supposed to know better, and under his state license laws as teacher, he attests to the fact that he will not enter into such relationships. He was a 29 year old teacher, in a point of authority over students, and acted on his sexual urges. The question I would ask you is "Is it OK if some 29 year old male teacher "banged" YOUR 16 year old daughter, even if she stripped in front of him and wrapped her legs around him, making YOUR daughter a "conniving deceitful hoe"?"
Sorry, IMHO, Joe Cleghorn is not a good man and he threw away his life because God gave him two heads but only enough blood for one to work at a time!

Well, I guess the only bigger joke than the OSU schedule is Florida State's schedule and they are rated #1 but have to get by DUKE in the ACC Championship game. Look, this BCS process has been a joke for some time as it rewards the teams from the power conferences that can play easy schedules and stay unbeaten. The four team playoff will be better but the #5 team will complain next year.

ronfi07,I read the article from the Athens paper and it contains direct quotes (note the quotation marks in the story) from Coach Hake. Anyone that has been around him while coaching knows he is loud and brash with his team and gets the most from his players. But, the comments should not be made in public while warming up for a game. Totally inappropriate. I thought he was bigger than that kind of behavior.

Just like Paul Harvey used to say, here is the rest of the story. After reading the published story from the Athens newspaper in Comment #1, this event now is easier to understand. If Coach Hake did say those things on the field, within earshot of the opposing team (i.e., the comments were made to be heard), he got what he asked for. Those comments are suitable for locker room pep talks, amongst the team/family. Once you are on the field, why give the opponent the ammo to use against your team? This is unfortunate as, once again, a game played by young men is ruined by the adults who have not grown up.

Every season under Wolford, YSU does NOT get better as the season progresses. Every year, November has been a killer. You have to finish the season strong by eliminating your mistakes and maximizing the strengths of your players. But, Wolford has not done this and for that reason alone he should be canned. Next, what ever happened with recruiting the State of Youngstown like Tressel. You need a large base of kids from the 75 mile radius of Y-town so that their families will put their butts in the seats. And, defense wins championships. If you hold them scoreless, it is a tie! But, their linemen on both sides of the ball are weak and slow. This is a very lackluster program.

While authorizing to spend $5 per ton for aggregate may not sound like much, the city could probably negotiate it for less. the alternative would be to force AP O'Horo to remove the stockpile immediately, which would be costly. The city could take it off their hands for a portion of the back rent. It doesn't seem likely that AP O'Horo was just moving their crusher equipment around to vacant lands without city "leaders" having some knowledge of it. The truth is probably in the middle; they were given a "handshake" agreement with proper "paperwork".

Not offering a motive makes the jury's decision somewhat difficult. However, three distinct BLOODY fingerprints were found at the crime scene that matched the defendant. That means that at least Ferrara was inside of the home. Let's surmise that he entered the home after the crime and got blood on his hand for some reason. Hard to believe that only one murderer would not wear gloves while another would. Such a horrendous scene and he would not call police? Logic says he was there at the time of the crime and he is as guilty of the crime than anyone else that was there.

Well, I guess it's a great thing that Little Timmy Ryan is on the US House Armed Services Committee and Budget Committee. Yessiree... more good news. Hmm...maybe Ryan can trade his support for Clinton for increased inventory and staffing at the YARS. I seem to remember Bubba Clinton saying he would support the Y-town bid for the DFAS center in 1992, before the election. That worked out well for us and the former corrupt congressman Jimbo, Little Timmy's mentor.
