Governor Kasich demonstrated how far Ohio has come since he took office and put forward a vision for Ohio can continue its progress.  As time passes Ohians forget how bad things were four years ago: 400,000 jobs lost, an... Continue reading

Last night Governor Kasich asked us to trust him and his policies on job creation.  He asked us to double-down on JobsOhio and on his plan to add more tax cuts that favor the weathly.  But the numbers just don't seem to... Continue reading

I responded to Andrew Samtoy: i'm still baffled how Kasich can go on talking about this fictional $8 billion hole in the state...

Kasich touted increases in educational spending, but critics pointed out that these followed deep cuts.  I'm looking over the rest of the speech; does anyone know of any other fact-checks that exist, either supportive or... Continue reading

I responded to Andrew Samtoy: While I think reviving robust high school trade programs is a good idea in general, I cringe at...

Ok.  I'm very late to this conversation but given the recent announcement by Kasich to fund the highway by taxing those who travel more than 30 miles on the turnpike (i.e. mostly non Ohioans), I thought I throw in my... Continue reading

Define OSUE as the Premier Extension Program

I responded to Ohio State University Extension: Outside my immediate work group I don't, because it's through that group that I have the highest...

Ohio State University Extension

How do you stay informed about Extension outside your immediate work group? How do people find out about our programs?

What is the Opportunity (Cost) of the Corridor?

I responded to Nancy Reeves: Nancy, I think your fears are baseless. It's a stretch to think that a thriving yuppie-fied...

Nancy Reeves

My concern is actually quite different.  The plan, from what I understand it (if successful) would create a thriving business district along the corridor.  Likely, once there is an attractive business district the... Continue reading

What is the Opportunity (Cost) of the Corridor?

I responded to Nancy Reeves: I think there's a third possibility, Nancy, that's actually the most likely. I don't see how a...

I responded to Jill Miller Zimon: What if Cedar Avenue were maintained and upgraded? That would give us yet another access route to...

Jill Miller Zimon

This is fabulous - thank you. Exactly what I think people need to think about/digest because in one way, why add on when we have so much to take care of already? On the other hand, we also need to quantify what this... Continue reading
