Basketball star LeBron James returns for the first time to the city he spurned for the balmy climate of Miami. How he's treated by the fans at 'The Q" is a matter of intense national scrutiny. Ohio's prison bosses say a 10 per cent budget cut will lead to prison closings and potentially dangerous overcrowding. Plans to modernize the sewer system will cause some fiscal pain for rate-payers in northeast Ohio. And the Cuyahoga County Board of Commissioners meets for the last time. Join us with your thoughts for the regional roundtable Friday morning at 9:00.

I am a a retired public servant.  Most local, county, regional, state and federal workers that I have known did not get into government service for the pay and benefits- we did it to serve our community. We work hard and most of us are not lazy and corrupt.  There is no incentive for a private company to serve the public- its first responsibility would be to make a profit. Do you want people who are paid less and receive fewer benefits and have no loyalty to the community to be providing you with basic services in education, safety, transportation, and other important areas such as the postal service?
