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.

As a resident, taxpayer and grad of Austintown Schools, I am happy Harold Porter is standing up for the kids, teachers and parents of this school district. He should call out the misappropriations. The school website clearly has the rating posted on it. There was no need to send those out when they don't even supply enough books for children to take home. And do not get me started on that fee. That fee is reduced or free for half of the children in the district, why are the parents who have jobs being punished. It obviously is not that important since the district is NOT reimbursed by the state for that fee and over half the kids qualify for a reduction or do not have to pay it at all.

This reminds me of some of the best summer hot spots in Chicago. I hope it works out and they have the Indians game on all TVs. Good luck Ryan Reese!

We had BoJo's for the first time this weekend and it was delicious. Creamier than Handle's even, very good!

I am sure you all are so well informed on the subject beyond what you read in the paper correct? You have been to the board meetings and know why the teachers are upset with the administration right? Yep, that's what I thought. There is so much more going on that is not reported by the Vindy. But, I'll let you all fight it out with your opinions based upon what you read on the internet. Because you know they can't put it on the net if it isn't true.

I'm sorry, I could have sworn I saw on the news this morning that included in the issues were also resources and classroom size.....yep, I did. RTS, we support our teachers in Austintown, sorry you don't support yours in whatever town you live in.
