Criticizing the hiring of JAC to manage Packard Music Hall is strange. That place hasn't been this successful in years. There are shows to see and those shows bring people into the city.

I hope that guy had to limp home and put ice on himself.

Two things that need to be understood by all parties:
1) Planned Parenthood does not receive any funding for abortions. They submit no requests for reimbursement for abortions.
2) Planned Parenthood helps prevent abortions by providing family planning services, access to birth control and education.
If all parties would agree that sexual education prevents unwanted pregnancies and promote better education the number of abortions performed would be reduced. Planned Parenthood has proven to be a successful resource in that regard and should remain funded by the government.

That's good news. The nurses deserve much better treatment.

It's a good idea but as with any large sum of money in Youngstown government it needs to be audited. We need to make sure houses are coming down at the intended rate and that the money collected form the fee is being used.

Here's a fine example of Youngstown parenting that goes directly to the problems faced by the school system. If you are a father, what are you doing out at 1am drinking so much you kick in a door and hurt your child? How is that kid supposed to perform in school the next day? This isn't a poverty problem or a problem with the teachers, this is a guy who doesn't understand what it means to be a father.

Youngstown needs leaders and there aren't any available. During the last election everyone held their nose and voted for the guy who is under indictment because he was the best choice.
Until we have some self-respect and can raise up someone smart and capable who wants to lead, we're going to be stuck with corruption and those who can do the least harm.

This seems to be a replay of the casino deal. Yeah, we can have 10 pot farms, like the four casinos, and it's written into the constitution where they are allowed to be. What if I want to have my own farm and produce a little weed alongside the beets? Why wouldn't I be allowed?

Youngstown sounds like a great place to live.
Chemicals in the water? CheckSewage in the park? CheckSpeed traps? CheckFailing schools? CheckMayor under indictment? Check
I can see the attraction.

I can't wait for the inevitable story to break that someone in City Hall is siphoning off this newly found cash.
