Carano has done nothing for Austintown in all his recent political positions, it is time for him to not use this township as a place holder until some other position comes along. Plus he had never said that he was explicitly against JEDDs, which I can not support someone who does not come out and say no JEDDs. Shepas is the best candidate for the job, no political ties, and against JEDDs.

Worst part, she was employed at TLCC Daycare.

I am not sure what the problem is with understanding these grades and if you are in the schools, then you know exactly what these things are reporting. Austintown has a good 4-yr and 5yr graduation rate, and they meet the performance indicators, but from year to year there is not a lot of improvement in ability of kids. So basically, a gifted kid doesn't grow his scores, the lowest 20% remain in the lowest 20% and the average kid stays average. Sounds about right with what I have seen.

We need to keep a better eye on these schools until they are completely down. As soon as Davis closed it became a haven for criminal activity. Don't let that happen in your neighborhoods!

I didn't go to Rumors and don't go to Shotz because of the clientele. Knowing Furrie and his propensity to attract a way younger crowd (not always legal drinkers) at these other two places, Lemon Grove is now off my list as a possible evening destination.

Could have sworn when they first reported this, part of the testing would be down in Austintown Township Park. If this is still true, not cool Commissioners, not cool at all.

My favorite statement is that when the teacher started they were the highest paid, now they are the second lowest. Um, aren't you in the school district with the lowest test scores too? Sounds fair to me if pay is relative to students learning.

Nice try Colaluca, but there are many of us who will vote NO whether it be November or May!!!!! Why don't you move here and see if you are willing to pay more taxes for two buildings that just need maintenance as opposed to a new school.

Mill Creek's Blue Allstar team was the tournament Champions in the AGSL and Mill Creek tournaments as well as runners up in the Saxonburg tournement for slow pitch. Mill Creek has great programs for all types of summer ball.

Youngstown had nothing to do with getting the racino here but now they want a piece of the action? Please. I didn't see Sammarone driving 3 hours to each gaming meeting trying to convince them to allow the plans to pass. I didn't see Sammarone meeting with anyone while the talks were happening. I agree Bozanich is a shyster and no deal he proposes is good for the townships. Water has gone up every year and still they don't have enough money. Maybe they should look at their out of control spending.
