The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and the owners of the new Hot Head Burrito — Don Spence, Brian Spence and Rick Mills — plan a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Hot Head Burritos is at 5450 Mahoning Ave. It is the second location for the owners. They operate one in Hermitage, Pa., and plan to open a third location in Boardman in January. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
Support for US pipe manufacturers
U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, both from Ohio, along with a group of other senators, urged the U.S. Commerce Department to maintain anti-dumping duties and countervailing duties on Chinese steel-pipe imports.
Oil-country tubular goods are used for domestic oil exploration, particularly in the shale industry, and are produced in Ohio by U.S. Steel in Lorain, V&M Star in Youngstown, Wheatland Tube in Warren and JMC Steel in Brookfield.
“Since 2010, these orders have been instrumental in helping to level the trade playing field against China’s unfair trade practices and protect jobs in our states,” according to the letter from the senators.
American CEO: Turnaround near

American is positioned to finish its Chapter 11 restructuring faster than Delta Air Lines and United Airlines did theirs last decade.
