Youngstown cops reject labor contract granting raises


If you like, you could go to the Police academy. You could be a reserve and work for free a couple of years, and then become a paid police officer in YTown. See if you enjoy it.

I wonder if you will enjoy breaking up bar fights, domestics, and being shot at. A hour later you can arrest a drunk and be spit and puked on. Don't forget to swing by the murder scene and collect evidence, don't step in the evidence or else it will all be thrown out of court because you made one tiny mistake on your hours of paperwork.

Then consider if they have a great job and benefits.

YSU to lay off 15 employees and eliminate 43 vacant positions

So Red,

What does voting in Ytown have to do with YSU?

You defend Kasich from YSU mistakes and somehow make the connection to local voting.

Coldwater Creek files for bankruptcy, will close stores


Lets review, You blame the Dem's when Reagan was president. Then why do you NOT blame the repub led Congress under Obama?

I am not sure you look at things equally and objectively. Oh, watching too much "fair and balanced" news.

Coldwater Creek files for bankruptcy, will close stores

So I assume the stock market nearly doubling, unemployment not as bad as it was 6 years ago and the housing market rebounding, you give credit to Obama for that.

Drug screening expanded to Austintown school employees

If the students are tested, so should the faculty and administration.

Coldwater Creek files for bankruptcy, will close stores

Usually the union is blamed. Oh, places without unions fail also??

UPDATE | GM to recall 824,000 more cars

It amazes and AMUSES me how quick the posters on here slam GM every time a recall happens. However NUMEROUS other vehicles are recalled all the time. And posters give the other car makers credit for making such good cars, better then GM. Seems posters want to slam the workers for building a bad car. But the workers are only doing their job.

Valley ranks near bottom in American quality-of-life index

Just finding yesterday's headlined article interesting. "Valley Ranks Near Bottom In American Quality- Of -Life Index, published :3/26/14. Compared with today's headlined article, Austintown's Racino Construction On Track, published: 3/27/14.

One day the Valley is sunk on a survey regarding Quality-Of-Life ...the Next Day we see article to a Racino opening!

as stated:Well-being “is the combination of many aspects of life” and “is about the interaction between physical health, finding your daily work and experiences fulfilling, having strong social relationships and access to the resources you need, feeling financially secure and being part of true community,” As such, six domains of well-being make up the Well-Being Index: life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and basic access.

Any extra thoughts?

Maybe the essence of "quality of life" gets a boost in a single day! We shall see in the fall when Valley Racino opens and a new survey re-evaluates quality- of- life for the valley again!

ahhh, what a concept!
