* People are in shock following the shootings at Chardon High School, in Ohio.  Two students have died.  The atmosphere in schools today is not even close to what it was in the '50's, '60's, and '70's.  Despite the special training that teachers and students receive, violence still happens in our schools. The only way to stop violence at school is to keep up our vigilance. Students and teachers need to talk to each other.  Parents need to talk with their children.  Keep those lines of communication open.

It doesn't help that Gov. John Kasich's solutions to problems tend to be all show and no action.  Plunderbund:

John Kasich gave a speech at the Highway Patrol Academy announcing a couple of law enforcement initiatives.  The Dispatch obliged with a positive headline:  “State takes aim at drug trafficking.”

According to a longer article in the Dispatch, Kasich is pushing two new law enforcement initiatives:  (1) a new law making it a felony to own a vehicle with concealed compartments; and (2) “severe warning signs” on highways to deter drug dealers.....

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Warning signs as a deterrent?  Really.  When Kasich's budget cut funding to local cities, counties, and schools, firefighters, police, and teachers lost jobs.  Providing funding for the communities and schools would lower crime, and signs will not.

>>>>   What signs has Josh Mandel used to show citizens he hates his job?   Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel continues to spend his time and energy working on his campaign for Senate, even while seeming to be avoiding his day job as Treasurer  With his 14 missed meetings of the Ohio Board of Deposit, citizens are worried that the state monies are not being guarded.  Mandel's lackadaisical attitude about the duties of his job are making lots of citizens worried.

To add more to Mandel's lack of focus, we have evidence that Mandel will be out of state next week and in NYC:
