cedar point employees rumble in their housing area

Sandusky police answered the call to assist Cedar Point's security force at 3:15 a.m., this past Sunday when a fight broke out in the employee housing area.

According to an article in the Detroit Free Press (link provided later), 13 of the 16 Cedar Point employees that were arrested for disorderly conduct and aggravated rioting were from Michigan.

I don't recall anything like this ever happening at Cedar Point in the past, and I think it puts a lot of pressure on the Park to do a better job screening its employees.

Great California story, judge strikes a blow for minorities and poor

He agreed with the students' claims that California tenure laws result in ineffective teachers "obtaining and retaining permanent employment" in schools that predominantly serve low-income and minority students.

This ruling should be hailed by anyone who cares about kids getting a good education, especially those who are in schools in impoverished areas.

Lucas County Central Committee Question--Is this correct?

I was notified by a friend that the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee is having a meeting this Wednesday night. I looked on the Party's web page and it says:

"Pursuant to Ohio R.C. 3517.04, I, Meghan Gallagher, Lucas County Republican Party (LCRP) Central Committee Chairman...."

Is Gallagher the chairman? I thought that Jon Stainbrook was. Of course, the way these two twist the rules--who's to say how such a switch may have occurred.

Msnbc commentator stiffs the university of toledo

Obviously, many of us who post on SB don't agree on all topics. But I'd like to think that we all have a sense of responsibility that would motivate us to pull through on our promises.

Such is not the case with former BET and current MSNBC commentator Jeff Johnson. Johnson attended the University of Toledo in the early 1990s. He has periodically come back to UT to give speeches and to assist with the Africana Studies program.

In 2011, Johnson was honored at a special Black Alumni Weekend Homecoming event. An announcement was made that he was donating $10,000 to establish a scholarship for Africana Studies majors. It was a big deal and the UT Foundation feted Johnson at several events over that weekend.

Just one problem--Johnson has never actually given a dime of what he promised.

What Should United Negroes Do?

Can't wait to read the dance on this one.
In a move that is sure to confound--and enrage--the left, the Koch brothers have donated $25 million to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the foremost source of financial support to African-American students.

The UNCF launched the "Koch Scholars" program Friday, which "will provide nearly 3,000 merit- based awards to African American undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctorate students seeking scholarship assistance."

Obama Considered Using Military Force against Cliven Bundy Supporters

Last week, the Washington Times mentioned the fact that the Obama administration seriously considered using military force against Cliven Bundy and his supporters during their standoff back in April. This should come as no surprise after we reported that there was word that the Defense Department had approved a drone strike.

Apparently, the Obama administration considered a strike on protesters, exercising their First Amendment rights, which ironically, are supposed to be protected by the same administration under the US Constitution.

The Times reported:

Quite a list!

(***not a comprehensive list)
1. "I will have the most transparent administration."
2. "I have shovel ready jobs."
3. "The IRS is not targeting anyone."
4. "If four Americans get killed…uh…. it is not optimal." (Benghazi)
5. "ObamaCare will be good for America."
6. "If you like your doctor, you can keep him, period."
7. "Premiums will be lowered by $2500"
8. If you like your health insurance, you can keep it, period.
9. "I did not say you could keep your health care." (Regardless that 29 recorded videos show I did)
