Just because a man donates money or even time to good causes, does not make that man a good person. Sort of like the old saying, "a man who is nice to you, but mean to the waiter, is not a nice person."

I have never lived there, but I have always thought the Hinkley area would be a good place to live. It has great natural beauty, is just minutes from Cleveland's SW suburbs including the airport, 1/2 hour to downtown, and easy access to I-71, I-77, I-271, and the turnpike.

EDIT: I think Hinkley feeds the Highland School District (Medina County).

I attended Mt. Union and have degrees from the University of Akron and Kent State University. Still I only have Ohio State gear, except for one T-Shirt...the UC - Santa Cruz shirt like Vincent Vega wore in Pulp Fiction. One of my favorite movies, and UC Santa Cruz is one of the coolest campuses I've ever visited.

Sorry, I didn't check this thread for a while. If I recall, there are only about 4 or 5 spaces for the existing building. The rest belongs to whoever owns what was the Holiday Inn (I'm thinking the university owns that now).

There's a memory. Someone bringing a new net to the school playground basketball court and two guys holding up a third while he put the new net on the hoop.

They don't have nearly enough land for parking for a food/beverage business.

I was, at one time, a certified "radon scientist" which meant that I took classes and understood how to use the various pieces of equipment that measure radon. 

I firmly believe that the 4+ = remediation is indeed a scam, and in fact, I tested my own home at the time. I was at about 5 ppm and did nothing to remediate even though we use part of our basement as a living area.

FWIW, the biggest benefit to remediation is that it reverses the pressure difference between your basement and the ground. This can actually help reduce humidity in your basement

QB gets hit just after he begins his forward throwing motion. He is on his own 43. Ball lands on his own 40. Incomplete pass.

Let them come back and compete. Maybe a new staff will get a higher performance from them.

Comment 03 Jan 2019

I have gone to hundreds of games through the years, sitting in nearly every area of Ohio Stadium. Not once have I heard an older fan tell a younger fan to sit down on 3rd down.

What changes in tactics did we make that would lead one to conclude that we were kinder/gentler or coasting? Or are we just coming to that conclusion based on results?

Comment 01 Dec 2018

If Alabama and Clemson win, they will have 4 teams that beat every team on their schedule. 

We will be a one loss team and B1G champs, which is good, but the marquee non-conference win for our entire conference was Maryland's win over Texas. Our West Division Champ did not have an out-of-conference win.
