Apples don't fall far from the tree
This is a democrat town with a democrat newspaper and city council. That's why nothing is balanced but all geared to the left which is why I cancelled my susbscription after many years. Tired of the nti police position , no hard line on the rule of law and too much sensitivity to criminals. Jackson is a disgrace with the City looking more and more like Chicago with murder and crime. He has not helped the minority community lift itself up . The police force is the lowest in decades with no attempt by the Mayor to beef the force up to deal with all the crime and gangs. Cities deteriorate under democrat governments.
I listen to him on the sound of ideas and you can tell he is a stooge for the mayor. I doubt he believes hald the stuff he says. It is really a shame.
Susan Goldberg pulled the operation out of being essentially a co-conspirator with the Dimora criminal enterprise.....but once she left (and her current stewardship of National Geographic is impeccable), the rats - again - began racing around the executive suite.
So, I am a ne ohioan, lived in Ashtabula 40 some years, before I began nomadic life. My sister, who had moved to Denver years before I did, laughed at my "Midwest accent". I protested, of course, as I had this grammatically correct need to enunciate my words correctly, I have grown a large vocabulary and generally try to say what I mean, and mean what I say, a distressingly rare thing these days. But, she did clarify this accent to amount to a vowel difference, ahia, indeed was how she presented this, though, I have never said Ohio any other way than with long O's, but nasally, yes sometimes the vowels come out nasally and drawn out, something I thought was Appalachian more than Ohioan. Within our own family, Mom said maptress and chimbly...where she found the p and the b in those words, I haven't got the foggiest idea. Daddy was the closest to the hill Williams, but he spoke like everyone else in the area...and both my parents were born and raised in Ashtabula County, not leaving until after the 80s stripped the jobs away. Now, since I have lived in all four time zones and on all four coasts...my accent is undeniably muddied and not so identifiable any more, but I worked to be less nasally, but sometimes Soda comes out pop, anyhow. Somebody makes fun of my accent, I ask them to read Conneaut....then I can laugh at them. It most definitely is not con-noot. Ashtabula seems hard for many, too, especially inflection wise. It is ash tah bula, not Ash tab oola. Lol
If anyone out there collects artifacts related to FDR (32nd POTUS, 1933-1945), I have something very rare that I might be willing to sell, for the right price. I also collect railroad stuff...but electric-powered only (subways, elevated trains, streetcars, trolley buses, etc.)

I have a very large collection of salts, at around 670 now. What are salts you ask? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_cellar
