    Another day, another job deficit 

    Today's economic scorecard: Bowling Green's Sky Financial Groupcreates a presence in downtown Akron after taking over Second Bancorp (worth 30 to 40 jobs) as Aetna announces the closing of its Bath Township office (loss of 98 jobs though some employees may have the opportunity for work with Aetna elsewhere). Final result: Loss of 58 to 68 jobs. Why is it Northeast Ohio loses more often than not in ``companywide reorganizations'' This time the loss is to that Indiana garden spot, Fort Wayne, where the presidential candidates don't even bother to visit. Maybe Wednesday, in the final of three presidential debates, we can have a cameo appearance from Bill Clinton to remind President Bush and Sen. John Kerry that, at least in Ohio: ``It's the economy, stupid(s).''
