Another passel of boondoggles averted! Thank the heavens that we will not be now stuck with multiple tax increases to cover these costs when the "free money" dries up.

At least they were smart enough not to get funding to build rail stations that nobody will use.

I'm actually surprised they didn't.

Well, considering that most of the right-wingers on this site don't want any federal assistance, then this should be no problem for them. If we elect a Republican governor, then we should just say NO to any federal money helping our state.

Do this Prog Boy: get some buses and round up some 18 y/o H.S.students and buy them ice cream and have them "man up" on the public-access computer banks around town and then you can run the Internet too. Your team failed ya. Turn the page/click the next stor and stay out of my wallet too. You prog folks blew it as greed usually does to all well intended peoples.

So if the Federal Government gives money to Ohio - the Republican's complain and blame Strickland.

If the Federal Government doesn't give money to Ohio - the Democrats' complain and blame Kaisch.

It really doesn't matter who wins come November 2nd because it will be business as usual for Ohio - Lets Play the Blame Game.

Nobody in this state wants to 'FIX' anything, all everybody wants is someone to blame when NOTHING is FIXED.

The article is misleading and Roddy is correct. Cincy got $25 million from the Feds to help fund its streetcar project in the earlier round announced in July. Construction is supposed to start in about a month.

Everything Columbus or the State of Ohio does is in favor of Big Oil.
Nothing is being done about Interstate Rail Transportion or pollution free
Innercity Wheelchair friendly Streetcars, like they are being used in Europe . These Projects would free up the roads, fight pollution and make it possible to travel without an Automobile

Ride a bus.

In case you haven't noticed on the news, Europe is in chaos right now, as they are all broke and bankrupt after all these friendly things bankrupted them.

The rioters have to walk as the transit workers are on strike.

Not to mention the fact that they are running the train along Vine St.(Over the Rhine).

I thought the point of the train was to get people who otherwise didn't want to ride with the kind of people that ride a bus!

Anyone regardless of where they live in this country should be looking at what is fiscally responsible spending of ALL taxpayers dollars. This so called free money isn't free pal. Get a clue here! Any money's from the coffers of hard workinng taxpayers monies has to have some ROI. Nobody is going to benefit from bridges to no where.

And if its fixed, they scream because it was and they'd use it anyway.

They could have allocated some of the Stimulus money that went to nonexistent zip codes http://newmexico.watchdog.org/1031/federal-st...
