So a mother and father are punished for protecting their child from a vicious animal? why isn't the pit bull charged with cruelty to children? or have we sunk so low that a child's wounds are not as important as a damn dog's, and animal rights trump parental ones?

A shameful reality which, of course, will be blamed on the victims, increasing the shame; but no one is blushing and nothing is being done about this colossal social sin in the richest nation on earth.

What a surprise (not), and how insulting for the candidates who actually applied for the job of provost; next time YSU seeks to fill a position maybe it will have the decency to announce the position has already been given to away to an insider but they need to go through the motions of a search to fulfill legal requirements. Incest, sexual or academic, invites disaster.

How utterly shameful to conceive, compose and print such an vile diatribe against our community's greatest public servant the day after he tragically died. Only someone with a hopelessly dead soul and warped mind could do such a disgraceful thing.

Thank God for this positive sign. That Traficant, a modern crucified prophet to America, is breathing life into his own wounded body may be a sign that, when he recovers, he can once again breathe life into the wounded body politic of America. God knows we need it, and him.

Of the 24 standards, Canfield meets all 24 and Youngstown meets 0. It is a pattern repeated all over the state/nation: affluent suburban communities have excellent schools and impoverished urban communities have lousy schools. Two different worlds within walking distance of each other shaping America's future for more division in our increasingly divided (and failing) society; and nothing, nada/zilch, is being done about it.

Things are worse in Trumbull County, where the BOE first certified two referendums for placement on the November ballot and then, based upon an illegitimate protest filed late, reversed their decision and took both off the ballot. Sad, especially today, to know that the custodians of local elections prevent a whole town from exercising the right to vote.

The Trumbull County Board of Elections quashes two referendums and prevents a whole town from voting; now the Ohio General Assembly wants to strictly limit voting in Ohio and prevent citizens from expanded early voting. Killing democracy slice by slice...

The resurrection of passenger train service around here and its development through 21st century high-speed technology is long, long overdue. Unfortunately due to the neanderthals in public office, like Kasich who rejected $400 million in federal funds to pursue this life-line of economic development in Ohio, there are no passenger trains at all in the entire Mahoning Valley. High time for folks who really care about the future of our long neglected community to jump on board and bring high-speed rail here and elsewhere asap. It is not only feasible; it is absolutely vital.

If a gang of thugs in the streets endangered the health, property, safety and life of a community think maybe law enforcement would shut them down? What if it was a gang in the suites, like AMWS? What's the penalty for causing earthquakes and then attempting to cover it up?
