Fireworks warning from Struthers cops


Police are warning residents not to violate the city’s ordinance against possessing or selling fireworks.

Police will patrol the neighborhoods and cite violators. “We expect people to use common sense,” said Detective Jeff Pantall.

Kinsman man killed in one-car crash


The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a one-vehicle crash that killed a 19-year-old Kinsman man.

Troopers said Timothy J. Hess died after his Ford Contour went off the left side of Cadwallader Sonk Road and hit a tree before coming to rest on its roof about 4:10 a.m. Saturday.

South Side shooting


Police are investigating a South Side shooting in which a 22-year-old man was wounded in his arm Saturday. Police said the man told officers he was visiting his girlfriend on Cooper Street when he walked away from the house and was shot about 6 p.m. The man told police he did not see anything and had no description of who shot him, reports state.

A neighbor told police he saw a black late-model Pontiac Grand Prix flee the scene east on Cooper, but was unsure if it was related to the earlier sound of a gunshot, according to reports. The 22-year-old man was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center where a nursing supervisor said there was no record of his being admitted.

Thank God the Sturthers police are doing their job. Unlike Austintown, Youngstown and Boardman police who let lawbreakers have the run of the streets. They should be arresting Zoldan who like a drug dealer is supplying ALL these illegal fireworks. Not only supplying them, but Zoldan is encouraging people to LIE and do it in writing.
Since Austintown, Boardman and Youngstown police don't want to do their jobs in arresting these lawbreakers, I guess everyone can go speeding through these communities, rob banks, and anything else they want. They sure don't have to fear the police in Boardman, Austintown or Youngstown. And they let the biggest dealer run the streets free,Zolan.

About time people realize that this is a free country, and that is what America is supposed to be about. Laws pass because of the few that do not appreciate the freedoms, but are boisterous enough to be heard. Good for the common sense law enforcement that will enforce the laws only when needed on such an occasion. Fireworks used properly without danger to others or property are not a hazard to anyone. The last statement that law breakers get away with anything is absurd and a typical statement from someone not using God's given common sense.

Grazor50, Its people like Wapiti who have nothing else better to do on the 4th but bother the cops with calls about kids running around with a sparkler in one had and a hot dog in the other. there is a reason why they are alone on the 4th of July. NO ONE WANTS THEM AROUND!

Are you serious? They are running rampant and only getting a slap on the wrist as punishment. Are you living under a rock?

If you truly believe that law is a joke and a slap on the wrist,, go for it: why work everyday? Rob your bank or embezzle from your employer, why work??? sounds easy to me,,, would make your life being rich and not working,,,,,, hmmmmmm maybe we should all listen to your point of view and retire on others money.
let me know how you make out! would like to try your lifestyle to come. I believe they call that living at "THE ROCK" (Alcatraz Island) not under it.

"If you truly believe that law is a joke and a slap on the wrist,, go for it.""

Dude, Your going to come on here and say the Youngstown judges give these criminals the max sentences? Or even some jail time? Do some research and see how many that are arrested have a PRIOR not to mention breaking Probation. If these judges had the balls to give the max the 1st time there arrested then they wouldn't keep doing it over and over. Get real.
The Youngstown court system is nothing but a joke and these criminals know it all to well. Why you think the increase in violence, stealing, robbing, etc because they know they'll be walking the streets real fast. Tougher sentences would reduce the animals that roam the streets. Comprehend? Quit living in a fantasy world.

""why work everyday? ""

Because I'm a law abiding citizen, do you work?

Rob your bank or embezzle from your employer, why work???

Are you serious? Hate to be your employer thinking like that.

""sounds easy to me,,, would make your life being rich and not working,,,,,, hmmmmmm maybe we should all listen to your point of view and retire on others money.""

Go for it. It's a free country. If you like stealing and robbing and taking the easy way out, all I can say is "Do it". No one is stopping you.

Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid.
