Boy, don’t you just love it. These people can jump willy nilly into the fray to fire people and you haven’t been sworn in. Deny Strickland’s appointees though he is still in office. This is taking charge. Getting the ball rolling. Obama did the same and was called arrogant, socialist, cuase of more racial divide(talk about the pot calling the kettle black). I guess when you’re ‘right’ you can walk over everyone to wonderous applause. When Lillian Greene wanted to finish her elected term, she was wrong. But, he, not sworn in, can do what he wants. That double standard gets more glaring every day and MY head does not screw on backwards.
I think it is ridiculous that the State of Ohio requires kids to appear in court for a traffic violation. This is unnecessarily heavy handed and I believe it violates their rights. Also, it overloads the court system. For God’s sake, these are kids who made a mistake - not crooks!
Just wanted to let you know that the RTA’s fare machines are incomprehensible! I suspect that many adults fail to pay because they can’t figure out how to get the correct fare (which happened to me & 3 friends in a rush to catch a train with no clue how to work the new machines) and there is now, no one there to help them—UNLESS there is a police officer standing by to catch fare jumpers. I can’t help but wonder WHO designed these machines? I’ve visited many cities and I could work them—even in a foreign language…
