Time for a change: At the Jan. 26 meeting of Youngstown Rotary Club, Ohio state Sen. Joe Schiavoni, D-33rd, presented a synopsis of the ideas and programs that have been proposed to help cut the state’s budget, to reduce Ohio’s joblessness and to stimulate the slow economy.

Schiavone, at left, is joined by Steve Kristen, Rotary Club president.

Bob King, United Auto Workers (then) vice president is shown at the Ford Rawsonville Plant in Ypsilanti Township, Mich. The United Auto Workers union is positioning itself as a business partner rather than a snarling adversary as it renews a campaign to sign up workers at U.S. plants owned by foreign-based car companies. Bob King, the current union’s president, said it will play tough with Toyota, Honda, Nissan, BMW, Hyundai and others if they don’t agree to a set of secret ballot election principles that the union is backing. Companies that don’t sign on to the principles will be branded in as human rights violators, King told an industry group Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011.

The truth about D.A.R.E.
An informative program on Drug Awareness Resistance Education was presented by Austintown Police Sgt. Jeff Toth at the Jan. 3 meeting of The Rotary Club of Austintown. A member of the police force for 24 years, Toth has spent the past 11 years as a full time D.A.R.E. officer. His focus is to alert youngsters to the dangers of using drugs. He reported that heroin is a major problem because users are hooked for life. He noted that prescription drugs, alcohol and marijuana are all concerns and that the Internet is exposing youngsters to other risky issues. Toth handles Crime Watch neighborhood units and his tip line at 330-270-5108 offers a place to leave an anonymous tip on crimes. He summed up his talk by stressing the need for vigilance in all neighborhoods. He was commended by Austintown Schools Superintendent Vince Colaluca for the Safety Town program he runs in the summer for kindergarten-age children. Sharing a moment with Toth is Susan Leetch, Rotary Club president.

Promises Treatment Center Vice President Shari Stillman-Corbitt takes in the view from a housing balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, Calif, Thursday, Dec. 30, 2010.

In this photo made on Dec. 15, 2010, Jim Riggio, the plant manager for the Beaver Falls Municipal Authority, shows a sample of the solid materials removed from the Beaver River water during treatment at the Beaver Falls Municipal Authority plant in Beaver Falls, Pa. The natural gas boom gripping parts of the U.S. has a nasty byproduct: wastewater so salty, and so polluted with metals like barium and strontium, most states require drillers to get rid of the stuff by injecting it down shafts thousands of feet deep. Not in Pennsylvania, one of the states at the center of the gas rush. There, the liquid that gushes from gas wells is only partially treated for substances that could be environmentally harmful, then dumped into rivers and streams from which communities get their drinking water.
