The CEO is the CEO. Who's to say that the leader of a private company isn't allowed to make x amount of money?

There's upkeep on grass, but also the facilities. Those wooden bleachers are going to collapse at some point and the maintenance costs will only rise on the actual facility itself. Plus you're looking at over $10,000 per game to transfer people to and from the high school for players and band members. Furthermore, the new stadium will have more potential for revenue generation through playoff games and tournaments. A 7,500 seat stadium will be perfect for most of the D3-5 playoff games around here and the region. And besides, if the project is privately funded, then nobody should be complaining because tax dollars aren't being used, which is commendable.

Only in this backward county is the response to a defeated tax "let's put it back on and DOUBLE it."

25-30K that could be used to buy textbooks, pay for refurbishing buildings, etc. Hope someone files a big fat lawsuit and gets this canned. How paternalistic do our public schools have to be?

How the heck is high speed internet infrastructure poor there? Armstrong cable is right down the street practically on 626.

Did you know that employer provided health insurance was just a scam started during world war II to get around the loophole of "wage and price controls." Individuals should go out and buy there own insurance, w/o a mandate of course. Until then, people will never know how much health care they are spending/wasting because a third party (insurance) pays almost all the bills.

I'm actually for this. Hagan gets something right for once. The War on Drugs has been a massive failure and has led to nothing more than overcrowded prisons with nonviolent offenders as we continue releasing legitimate criminals of violent crimes out earlier and earlier.

Bigben you are incorrect. Boardman's performance index was 103.8, Austintown's was 99.2. Austintown might have fared better in designation because they were at a lower starting point.

Sad to see this happen. It's events like these that tarnish the reputations of unions. I feel bad for all the younger workers who were screwed over by the old folks just looking for a little more gold in their parachute...But it's ok, unions are dwindling, and will be replaced by common sense.
