Free WRTA pass

YOUNGSTOWN -- Joe Lewis Wilson Jr. won a six-month transit pass from Western Reserve Transit Authority after his name was drawn from among 175 entries received between April 1 and April 30.

The drawing was open to the public, said Jim Ferraro, executive director.

This is the second year WRTA has awarded a free transit pass to a rider to demonstrate its commitment to those who use public transportation.

"We had such an overwhelming response from last year's contest, we wanted to do another one this year," he said

"I am so excited about winning the free transit pass," Wilson said. "I use public transportation on a daily basis to get to and from work. This will help me out a lot."

Senior center receives grants for heat, air

YOUNGSTOWN -- The Associated Neighborhood Centers, which operates the McGuffey Center on the East Side, has received grants totaling $33,000 for its senior social hall.

The money will be put toward a $50,000 heating, ventilation and air conditioning system so the hall can be used all year. Several foundations made donations, ranging from $700 to $25,000.

The agency continues seeking donations to raise the $17,000 balance. Contributions can be made the Associated Neighborhood Centers, 1649 Jacobs Road, Youngstown, 44505.
