Sorry, no featured properties currently.
As I said before, just like in Ferguson, where it was proven "hands up, don't shoot" never happened, here we have "hands up, don't mow, paint or whatever excuse to cry racism" where none actually exists! With African-American politicians willing to use any excuse for the problems in the black communities, instead of addressing the real issues, it's no wonder Youngstown has become the cesspool that it is.

Next thing you know, Youngstown will have it's own version of "hands up, don't MOW!!!"

Wow!!!! The Commissioners must have gone to the Nancy Pelosi School of "we have to pass the Bill to find out what's in it!!!!" So they just allow the raises to find out how much they were...once again, Democratic thievery at it's finest!

How "progressive" and "new-age" Tiffany & Co. has become! Being one of their "long-time" customers, based on their commitment to quality and service, it saddens me that I can no longer support them.

The "Ytown mentality" is prevalent in those who choose "fame and fortune" over honesty and integrity. What's "undebatable" are the facts that Tressel attempted to "cheat" and then lied about it when exposed...it just doesn't get simpler than that. The tragedy is that the lesson learned, as a result of his actions, is one of "as long as you are winning championships and bringing in tons of cash....well we'll just overlook your indiscretions and pretend they never happened." It's sad, really, that the people of this Valley are so starved for success, that they are willing to "sell their souls" in order to get it.

"Winning records and championships," that's what matters, honesty and integrity, be damned! No thanks. I'd rather my kids be taught the lessons of "actions have consequences." The NCAA has rules, good, bad, or otherwise and Tressel knew those rules and chose to ignore them, and then lie when caught. Those are the facts, and they can't be disputed, otherwise I would think Tressel would still be coaching at OSU. You can use all of the "winning records and championships" and "nice guy" adjectives to describe Tressel, sort of like that "putting lipstick on a pig" thing, he's still a proven liar and cheat. Those players knew they were breaking the rules, and knew that Tressel was aware of it and they also knew he would look the other way to "protect" their (or more like "his") winning records. Great "teachable moment" coach! It's no wonder you end up with the likes of Clarett or Winston in college athletics, and Hernandez and Rice in the NFL.

Am I the only one to see the hypocrisy of this? Tressel brought shame and deceit upon the college football genre (not that it wasn't omnipresent before him, his indiscretions just put the spotlight on it), and he is subsequently showered with accolades by those within that same institution! That's like me catching one of my employees lying in a business matter that costs my company thousands of dollars, then firing him (or letting him resign), and then I recommend him for a position with a sister company AND nominate him for "Business Leader of the Year" awards! Someone please explain to me how you justify that!

Is there something wrong with hiring a proven liar and cheater? Answer....he "double hockey sticks" YES!!!! It's all about the "almighty dollar," character and integrity, be damned! There's nothing anyone can say that changes the fact that Tressel knew his players committed those violations, and he chose to ignore them, and then when the truth came out, lie, and when that was exposed, resign in shame. If your "moral compass" allows you to support someone with that type of character, once again, it's no surprise that this Valley continues to wallow in corruption and disgrace.

"Cheat and lie.....it's okay, 'cause everybody's doing it!" With attitudes like that, it's no wonder this Valley can't shed the reputation it has! I can't decide if it's tragic or stupid, a little of both, I guess.

@jojuggie: you're right, I didn't read your posts from yesterday, but I have now. And I am totally on board with your thoughts on that "thug" Winston. Any NFL team that drafts him is just asking for trouble. That aside, there is no way you will ever convince me that Tressel was just trying to "protect" his players. You say you would've liked to have him as a son...well I've followed your posts on many other issues, and I'd be surprised that if your son had committed these same rule violations, that you would somehow justify them and look the other way...unless you are the biggest hypocrite on this site. Tressels knew what his players did was wrong, bottom line, and he did them no favors by "protecting" them. I think an upstanding and forthright individual, like you, jojuggie, would have suspended those players immediately, regardless of what games were yet to be played, and guess what?....JT still might be coaching at OSU, and be worthy of this most recent honor.
