The Akron SBD charging $1000.00 just for a small town like Martin's Ferry to participate? Figure a grand times all the other towns that send kids to Akron. What does one think?

Expect to see other communities sever ties along these lines. It will all splinter and disintegrate.

Bridgestone, Goodyear, your CEO bonuses alone for one year would eliminate such nonsense.

Martins Ferry is currently under threat of collapsing under the weight of its own crack.

Wasn't like that there when John Laslo was mayor. You betcha.
