I noticed how the reporter failed to mention that the Ohio Supreme Court has ruled that the way schools are funed are Illegal "Despite Governor Voinovich's protests, it looks like the Supreme Court's ruling that Ohio school funding is unconstitutional will dramatically affect state education funding. The Columbus Dispatch Web Site gives a summary of this landmark decision while the Supreme Court of Ohio Web site gives the decision in its' entirety" I am rather amused at the so called reporting and the guilt trip layed on the over burdend tax payers in these economic times. Its rather laughable that anyone would be suprised by the huge margin that these bond issues were slammed down. http://columbusoh.about.com/library/weekly/aa...

If these so called community leaders wished to invest 77 million dollars in our community why dont they build a local electrical power plant and we couldnt get slammed by CEI. What a grand Idea we can dismantle the perry plant and build a puplic power plant and use the unused cooling tower as a high rise school building :)

I think our community interests would be better served by building 77 million dollars worth of windmills to generate electricity and the saveings from our electric bills could be used to fund new schools :)

I have a better Idea lets build a massive concentration camp for Liberals, this should cost about 10 million then we can donate the rest to the republican party so we can get a no bid contract to round up internal disidents

I have an even better idea.......lets use the 77 million and award each school kid a percentage of it so they can invest it in retirenment since social security will be bust for them.
