"TV Land dumps the Dukes of Hazzard reruns due to the Confederate flag issue."
No more Hogans Heroes, All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Chico and the Man, and Sanford and Son reruns because of the racially charged comedy?

I agree but that would mean the Youngstown population would have to be accountable for themselves. Something that hasn`t happed since 1980.

There`s no argument that it is the law.
The point is regardless of all debating, it still is what it is, un-natural.

Isn`t it ironic how those who have screamed for equality and acceptance for years cannot show the same when it comes to people disagreeing with their position. After Friday`s decision I see people rejoicing on Facebook with various posts of support, and some of those same people vilifying others who oppose it. Calling them dinosaurs, right wing nuts, racist, or homophobic.
Well, it pretty much comes down to this. In a land where the government should be protecting everyone`s rights, not imposing their opinions of their definition of morality, people can do what they want regarding their personal lives as long as their decisions do not directly affect another person`s negatively.
But at the end of the day the natural order of life will always be the same. A female and a male will always be the only ones who can procreate. The only ones who can be the natural family. The way life intended it to be.
Whether someone cites man`s law or religious law, you cannot change natures law.
Deal with it.

Common sense doesn`t seem to be very common. If being stopped for what you believe to be no apparent reason why escalate the situation? Why not diffuse the situation by being compliant and courteous? Putting the authority figure at ease makes sense doesn`t it? They are the ones with the gun.
I don`t understand. I think sometimes people want a confrontation. Taking a, “what right do you have stopping or questioning me?” attitude.
Police are coming into an unknown situation and are probably naturally on edge. If you aren`t guilty of anything, then you have nothing to worry about. Seems simple doesn`t it?

open and shut case. He should have been taken care of out back right after the trial.
Move on the next next case.

How about placing one where a Poland cop stops someone.

Two things I wonder.
1) How do the parochial schools measure up by comparison?
2) Does open enrollment play any part in the school districts success or what I believe, possible failure? Looking at Canfield and Poland, two districts that do not have open enrollment, they seem to be doing the best consistently. Boardman and Austintown, while not bad, are a little behind. As the inner city continues to flee to the suburbs, will the problems follow?
Boardman becomes the new southside of Youngstown, Austintown the new westside, Liberty the new north, and Hubbard the new east. Eventually the original Youngstown will be reclaimed by nature. :)

Exactly kensgirl. Involvement is key in every aspect of the children's lives. And not just academically.

Soccermama, my comment meant nothing against these girls. If they are good players kudos to them, and great job.
Speaking from opinion, if there is a shred of truth in what was mentioned of players, seniors, not going out, then there is an issue.
Let us assume for discussion sake that this is true. 8 seniors did not go out. Granted many of those who did not go out may have just felt there was more talent in the lower grades and didn`t think they would make the final cut. And I would believe that more so if that number was closer to 3 players. But to hear that possibly as many as 8 didn`t, well that is a little surprising. Which then points the finger at the program itself. Normally you don`t play 2 or 3 yrs only to drop out as a senior.
I just found out that Canfield volleyball has had 3 different coaches in as little as 5 yrs. Is that normal? I`m asking seriously as I do not know if there is a lot of stability for a high school coach. If it isn`t normal then again the question is, is there something wrong with the program itself?
