Kasich can expect a turnpike fight | The Columbus Dispatch

You are still ignoring the facts. 1) Your 'Hero' Dick Solove invested the money to first build or purchase that shopping center. 2) Wal-Mart doesn't "lease" any property. They purchase it. They may lease the land that the building is on, but they own the building. 3) Exactly what is the prevailing wage for a toll booth operator? Since we only have one toll road, what are you comparing their wages to? 4) Prevailing wage construction contracts? You do realize that your 'prevailing wages' are the industry norm. They are required for State contracts to make sure that 'Contractor X' doesn't hire a crew of unskilled illegal aliens for $8.00 an hour in order to under bid 'Contractor Y' who pays $15.00 an hour. Continue to drink the tea, wave your defend the taxpayer flag, and ignore facts. It just goes to show how ignorant you actually are.  (Jul 28, 2011 | post #108)

It must be a mirage seeing how the link you use to support your opinion is the Weekly Lane Closure Report.  (Jul 26, 2011 | post #77)

Ohio IDs exceed voter-age residents | The Columbus Dispatch

Really? Is that why there are more Drivers Licenses/ID Cards than population in some areas? The Democrats are counting dead people? Oh wait, I know, the evil unions are making up fraudulent drivers licenses. That must be it. It's all one big conspiracy. Someone quick call Hollywood because this whole Union/Democrat conspiracy theory running rampant in Ohio could be the million dollar box office sellout movie. Get real people, the CIA did not kill JFK, there are no aliens at Area 51, and the Democrats/Unions are not stacking the vote in Ohio.  (Jul 24, 2011 | post #82)

State investigating how Somali agency spent grant money |...

With your poor grasp of grammar and spelling I'd say you are one of those that is abusing the system. Who is paying you to teach something that you do not understand? Hopefully you were not awarded an English degree through taxpayer funded grants and student loans. If you were, I demand a refund as we did not get what we paid for.  (Jul 23, 2011 | post #36)

Spelling Counts..... But on your point of the Sheriff's Posse, back in the '70s my Uncle was a member of the Allen County Sheriff Posse, he did have law enforcement training as well as search and rescue training before being given a badge (which said Sheriff Posse) and an ID card (also saying he was a member of the Sheriff Posse). Get your facts straight before you start insulting people that you know nothing about.  (Jul 23, 2011 | post #23)

State justices asked to block JobsOhio funds | The Columb...

Preventing Progress? Lets see. All the people who support SB5 because 'government employees' are paid to much for doing nothing have no problem with tax payers paying a private corporation whatever they want to be paid for doing whatever they want to do? JobsOhio is a private company, funded by the taxpayers, to do whatever they feel their job is. There is no oversight, there is no control, so basically they are being given money to do whatever they want to do with it. I would think the TeaParty would be up in arms over this one because this is tax money going out the window with nothing coming back in.  (Jul 23, 2011 | post #23)

Reward scam hits Zoombezi | The Columbus Dispatch

You nephew is in the minority then. While as an avid reader myself I applaud his devotion to the written word, sadly that is not the case for the majority of children these days. Still the four hours of reading is a bit low. I remember 35+ years ago when I was in school the 'Summer Reading Program' was one book per week. We would check out the book at the library and when you brought it back you had to tell the librarian what the book was about. Then she would mark your card and you could check out another book.  (Jul 23, 2011 | post #46)

Casino execs' pay a secret | The Columbus Dispatch

Really? Care to present any facts to substantiate your theory that the casino's employ illegal aliens and are involved in gang activity or the drug trade? Even though I personally won't be visiting any casino I will purchase stock in one since they do tend to have a better ROI than GM does at the moment.  (Jul 21, 2011 | post #29)

Casino execs' pay a secret | The Columbus Dispatch

Do the voters have the right to know how much you earn as well? I mean really, don't we have the right to make sure that you are paying the proper amount of taxes? All business in the state are technically "State Regulated Businesses", labor laws, business licenses, Worker's Compensation laws, zoning laws, the list goes on and on. The Casino's are a corporation doing business in the State of Ohio if you want to know the salaries of their executives become a shareholder, their salaries are will be available every year in their Annual Stockholder's reports. Other than that you have no more of a right to knowing their payroll than they have of knowing yours.  (Jul 21, 2011 | post #28)

Sure, as long as you have a teaching certificate it would. But it will also cause a shortage of teachers that will not likely be filled anytime soon.  (Jul 21, 2011 | post #142)

If you know of anyone else, or if you have done the same thing, please contact the local law enforcement agency. The crime is called Fraud or Theft by Deception. You apparently did not read her statement, by her own words it had nothing to do with a "better future for her children".  (Jul 20, 2011 | post #181)

Back the Truck Up.... 9 or 10 months ago weren't people complaining that The Dispatch was a Republican/Conserv ative slanted paper? Now all of a sudden they are Democratic/Liberal slanted.... Did they change owners or something? Make up your minds people, The Dispatch is either a Liberal paper or it's a Conservative paper. You can't have it both ways.  (Jul 20, 2011 | post #303)

Akron mom in school-residency case weeps before Parole Bo...

There was no record of violence at the school her children were attending, however, she lives(d) in subsidized housing. In the school records she listed her fathers address as her place of residence (so they could attend the other school), her father testified in court that they lived with him (so they could attend the other school). If she really was concerned about the neighborhood she lived in, rather than the school her children attended, why didn't she actually live where she claimed to have lived? She went so far as to use her father's address as her mailing address for everything except for her utility bills and her welfare records. Her mistake was she forgot to use her parent's address on her payroll records (she was employed part-time as a teacher's aid for the school district) and the discrepancy was noticed during a routine audit of school records. She was contacted several times in an attempt to correct the problem, and she could have legally enrolled her children in the other school district, but she would have lost the 'free lunch' vouchers if she followed the law. She is lucky they didn't charge her with welfare fraud in the process. If she had a valid concern for the safety of her children there are legal ways to have your children attend school in another district. She chose to ignore those methods and attempted to deceive the school district in order to continue to receive benefits that she would not be entitled to if she followed the proper methods.  (Jul 20, 2011 | post #143)

Ohio Supreme Court forbids damage collection when money m...

So basically what you are saying is that all people are inherently criminal in nature and public employees will go out of their way to destroy documents. It might surprise you to learn, if you bothered to do any research at all, that the majority of records destroyed to prevent exposure of criminal activity are done by private/corporate businesses that do not fall under the 'Public Records Act' to begin with. When it comes to public record destruction to prevent exposure, the simple fact that the records were destroyed is enough to show criminal intent. Perhaps the Watergate and Iran/Contra scandals slipped your mind? In both cases, the destruction of the records was more damning than anything the records originally would have presented. Careers ruined, prison sentences served, and no tax payer money given to a 'independent' third party.  (Jul 7, 2011 | post #38)
