How can this newspaper get away with printing these articles? I'm from jefferson county Ohio. No one dares mention the mafia in public, yet in private everyone laughs about how if you want to kill someone, Jefferson county is the place. I've called our local newspaper before, and asked how the mafia is allowed toget away with it in Jefferson county, and the one reporter said he was offered a $25K bribe, but refused it. Another reporter told me, if certain public officials did not obey their mob masters, they would get shot! I've read paperwork where it shows the DeBartolo's have connectins all the way to Presidents! I'm amazed the media allows the public to even talk about the mafia. Are the reporters at the Vindy to stupid to accept a decent bribe? or whats going on? heh Check into Steubenville Ohio, someone send the feds there to help us.

I just ran across some Bishop blessing a 16 Million restoration project in the name of Jesus in Steubenville Ohio. If you know anything about Steubenville, they are lucky to have 100K. A lot of these contractors also own supply houses. I wonder if God will appoint the work be done by those who will be milking the system big $ to rebuild some old pile of rubble.

God blessing rebuilding a building, while the poor are starving in the streets. Heh Only in America!

Check out http://OHIOVALLEYNEWSPAPER.COM/ it covers the Jefferson County Ohio / Steubenville area and talks about a little of the corrution. I think both areas, Y town and Steubenville are all connected.

Marianne, or is that you Flora?

You fail to realize dirty money is still dirty money even if it is a donation.

You probably would approve of the church keeping a large donation from a drug dealer, wouldn't you?

Oh, but you don't see the similarity do you ?

Hey censoredship. You don't have a clue. The Cafaro's are not in the mafia. The only thing they may be guilty of is using their money to influence people into doing certain things that they wanted done, period. They own 34 million sq ft. of retail space around the country that is paid off. They are for the most part debt free, so do you think they actually give a sh$$t about the tiny amount of rent they were getting from ODJFS. They were trying to prove a point that Oakhill was a waist of money, and they were right. As far as the debartolos, they haven't existed in this area in years except for the ownership of that poor exuse of a football team. Just remember that no matter how much money they have, it still takes a crooked politician to accept or solicit a bribe.
