Kent State's Early Childhood Felony Center


Two weeks ago Paul H. Jones, the former mayor of Ravenna, was convicted on federal felony charges for failure to pay income taxes. This didn't please many people, especially Kent administrators who'd (oops) named their childhood development center in Jones' honor. On Wednesday, the Kent State board voted to change the building's name. This time they decided to play it safe. The building's new name: the Kent State University Childhood Development Center. -- Rebecca Meiser
