Actually, the speed of the highway is determined by the road geometry for safe sight distances, traffic volume, merging lanes, widths, etc. The original area of highway, built in the mid-1960's, has always been 50 as there are many tight bends and numerous ramps to consider although I rarely travel 50 mph. Maybe it it could be higher if ODOT re-examined it. The newer areas were designed with better geometry so they have a higher limit.

Maybe he should change the names of all of the highways re-named after Martin Luther King Jr. while he is at it. I'm sure many of those streets had names that had local historical significance. But that wouldn't be politically correct.

A pure money grab. What if the camera takes a picture of the speeder and the vehicle registration is then found to have expired, will they go get the vehicle and the owner and issue a citation? If they collect $100,000, will they at least start to fill some of the potholes in Y-town? It's almost September and there are still moon-sized craters on some city streets.

billdog1,Actually, the 14th amendment , along with the 13th and 15th amendments, were enacted during Reconstruction after the Second Civil War in the late 1860's. The purpose was to prevent the freed slaves, some of whom were forcibly brought into this country and not born here, and their children from being denied their civil rights under the 15th amendment. Prior to this, the Constitution had no provision about what deemed a person a US citizen. It was accepted that, since we followed British common law, being born on American soil granted a person citizenship. US citizenship by blood relationship was really not specifically codified until 1952. Were the former slaves legal or illegal immigrants? Nothing in the amendment mentions legal immigrants. At many times in US history, we had an open immigration policy where, if you came through the front door (Ellis Island) and were free of disease, you were allowed in to the country to work in a factory or mine and try to become a naturalized citizen.
Cambridge is correct about this issue. Most illegal immigrants come to this country for a better standard of living or a job. If we were to round up and deport all of the illegals, they would have to shut down Las Vegas and America would starve as crops would rot in the field. Start locking up business owners for hiring illegals and the problem may lessen. There is a percentage, however, that come into this country to commit crimes, such as robbery or selling dope. In the process, we have had illegals commit horrific crimes and it can be argued that, if they were not in this country, the crime would not have happened. Being in the US illegally is not a criminal offense (yet). It's a civil offense punishable by deportation, which the feds have become very lax in enforcing. That is what pisses off Americans and why Trump is popular right now. We don't need new laws but just the existing laws enforced. Sanctuary cities should be denied all federal monies until they cooperate but that won't happen.

A simple suggestion here. Why not ask Probate Court employees that are still working there, under the knowledge that there is a criminal investigation, to cooperate and provide investigators with cases they new were suspect when the paperwork was being processed? In any event, it is wonderful that the Chief Justice schooled the Vindy on the law.

What is so hard to understand here? The article clearly states the the OHIO SUPREME COURT ruled that the OHIO CONSTITUTION home rule amendment does not grant MUNICIPALITIES the right to discriminate against or impede the oil and gas explorations that the state has permitted. This group insists on trying to clog the ballot with this issue when it is in direct defiance of state law, which always trumps local law, but can be trumped by federal law. Thus, the BOE was correct in their actions. If they want to change the law, it has to be done on the state level.

Gaming operations for charities, religious and non-profit groups have been around for a long time. Many Rotary Clubs sponsor Night at the Races to raise money that is put back into the community for worthwhile projects. There is nothing wrong with such gaming. But, to run a game of chance just to increase patronage of the business? That sounds like a casino to me and is only legal in Ohio under the Constitutional Law we passed as voters or through the Ohio Lottery. I would think the AG will stop this once Penn-Ohio Gaming sees Barry Dyngles with more customers than the MVRC on 46.

Glad to hear this is getting done. This is one of the best high school stadiums to watch a football game. Real grass and a great view of the action.

Not at all. I believe I addressed that point but the opinion hit piece also specifically calls Trump out for a lack of specifics and that he is deflecting political blows rather adeptly. But, at this point, Trump is a private citizen running for the office. Hilliary "those aren't calfs but steers" Clinton needs to answer difficult questions about her official duties a Secretary of State but I hear crickets on this point. It is painful to watch her lie to the press and none of them laugh in her face. They need to hold her double-wide to the fire also, not just Trump.

Roger,I'll give you one better! What about the questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the Pantsuit Queen's tie to foreign government contributions to it? Sure, these foreigners are doing this for purely charitable purposes. They aren't buying influence like the Chinese did in getting military technology secrets under BillyBoy. Or, how about Ms. Cankles private e-mail server in the barn that has been wiped clean which was in direct defiance of the Obama White House directives. Classified info in other party's possession to be possibly used against us or that could put our intelligence operatives in danger is not a big deal, huh? What is truly frightening is how the Clintons have totally sucked the air out of the Democratic party so that no other viable candidate has come forward. Trump will have to fill in the specifics soon enough since it is early in the process. If he doesn't, he will be gone.
