"The public has to participate." Translation...we County, tax-paying citizens who wouldn't venture into the Park if our lives depended on it, will end up paying for the clean-up, when it was the citizens of Youngstown, most of whom don't pay any taxes, who screwed it up. Very typical of today's society...mess something up, then take no personal responsibility for it, and let someone else fix it!

Ummm...I thought Hussein said that "ISIS" was "contained?" Apparently he meant that the campus at YSU "contained" ISIS terrorists! And of course he wants to take in Syrian reinforcements...oops, I mean refugees! C'mon man....these muslim terrorists are obviously here, among us, and the guy who claims to be the C.I.C. wants to bring in more? I heard a good analogy about the refugees....if you went to buy a bunch of grapes, and there was a great possibility that one of two of the grapes were poisonous, but there was no way to know which ones were, would you stll buy that bunch of grapes? Only if you were suicidal, I would think!

So, let me see if I understand what's being reported here..nah, never mind, it's all so "typical Youngstown," that the uneducated cretin Youngstown B.O.E. president, Brenda Kimble, who when she speaks you need an "Ebonics app" to understand her, appoints a person to the Boards "distress commission" the same day that persons car is found set ablaze, with a dead body in it! And people have the audacity to ask why the State needed to take over control of the Youngstown school system!

You're absolutely right, @DBTD. Why deploy extra Officers, at no cost to the Township, during the height if the holiday shopping madness? I'm sure the B.P.D. Officers have more than enough time to conduct traffic patrols, in between responding to the hundreds of calls for the shoplifting thugs that migrate from the north, to prey on local Boardman businesses! Oh, and by the way, many of those brave men and women in blue will be out there, protecting you and your loved ones, while you are stuffing your faces with turkey or gathered around the Christmas tree, exchanging gifts that you probably purchased with your bloated "corporate holiday bonuses," that we, the consumers, made possible. But let a Police Officer WORK to earn little extra income, and you whine like a newborn baby! Your attitude is pathetic!

Kudos to you, Trustee Davis! It's about time an elected official comes to the defense of public sector employees! So often public sector employees are subject to criticism for their salaries and benefits, and what do we hear from the politicians who approve the same? Crickets!! It's obvious that most of these "complainers" are just envious of what someone else has, yet are too lazy to try and get out from behind their french fryer, but march, protest and DEMAND $15.00 per hour, or more, minimum wage! I'm sure the Austintown Township Road Department hires, from time to time, but as you explained, the work is hard, dirty and subject to 24/7 working hours, things these critics wouldn't do for $100.00 per hour! Once again, Trustee Davis, good job!

So, let me see if I get this.....to celebrate "Nonviolence Week," these agencies bring in a speaker who uses three of the most violent offenders in recent history, Martin, Brown, and Garner, to play the "race card," once again? So, I guess if you are black, it's okay to violently attack an innocent store owner, while stealing from the same, and then attempt to kill a Police Officer? Great examples of "nonviolence!"

Has anyone been in the city neighborhoods lately? The new "branding" should be the "city of YO."

Once again, the CANCER that is called Youngstown is metastasizing into the suburbs and rural areas of the County, and trying to shed (no pun intended) blame for destroying Mill Creek Park by virtue of the decisions made by city politicians, many years ago! And there is no way you'll ever convince me that a "contaminant" would make it 23 miles, without first settling into the stream bed, or being screened naturally by the thousand of naturally occurring twists, turns and other impediments that are in these streams. This is just another "scam" by the city, to try and get someone else pay to fix the mess the city created!

I'll admit I'm not the "sharpest tool in the drawer," but if 150 or more of her emails are now "classified," what idiot would initially read that information, and then think, "hmm, this material seems sensitive, but what the heck, I'll just leave it on my UNSECURED server, and share it with my advisors (you know, like the wife of the "weenie waver, Anthony Weiner, like they aren't ripe for blackmail!). I wouldn't let this woman serve me my fries, with my burger, let alone run this Country!
